PROJECTED 2013 SEASON STATS
91. Leonard Hankerson, Wsh WRYEARTARRECYDSAVGTDRUSHYDSTDPTS
2012 Statistics573854314.3325066
2013 Projections523446013.51216053
2013 Outlook: Hankerson has a huge wingspan and giant hands, but he hasn't lived up to the 4.43 40-yard speed he displayed at the 2011 combine. He just can't get open consistently, which explains why he lost the Redskins' starting flanker job to Josh Morgan last summer. Hankerson did decent work during the '12 season, with eight catches of 20-plus yards. But his workload was so spotty -- he had seven games with zero or one catch, and four games with four-plus grabs -- that it makes Hankerson one of those tempting waiver-wire guys who's too inconsistent to roster in a standard-size fantasy league.
92. Dexter McCluster, Ten WRYEARTARRECYDSAVGTDRUSHYDSTDPTS
2012 Statistics78524528.711270044
2013 Projections75564768.511476056
2013 Outlook: McCluster has transitioned to slot receiver after spending time in the KC backfield in 2011, and he's grabbed an average of 49 receptions in his past two campaigns. So why hasn't he done more with them? He's got four TDs in his three-year career, and averages 23 yards receiving per game. Andy Reid has talked up McCluster as a gadget player he'll employ a lot, but we're not buying a major role for the mighty mite. He's quick but not fast, and just hasn't made enough big plays in his NFL career to warrant much trust.
93. T.J. Graham, Buf WRYEARTARRECYDSAVGTDRUSHYDSTDPTS
2012 Statistics593132210.4115031
2013 Projections472425610.72327039
2013 Outlook: The good: Graham could be a starter this year. The bad: The team that employs him is the Buffalo Bills. A straight-line runner whose routes are all kinds of raw, Graham showed he could occasionally stretch the field in his rookie campaign, but has little variation to his game. He'll battle Marquise Goodwin for the deep-threat job, but with either EJ Manuel or Jeff Tuel under center, there's probably not a ton of value no matter who wins the gig alongside Stevie Johnson and Robert Woods.
94. Jacoby Ford, NYJ WRYEARTARRECYDSAVGTDRUSHYDSTDPTS
2012 Statistics0000.000000
2013 Projections673748613.11739055
2013 Outlook: Ford missed half the 2011 season with a Lisfranc injury in his left foot, then reinjured the same foot last August and missed all of '12. This time he had surgery, so the Raiders are hopeful he can return to health, plus Darrius Heyward-Bey is gone from Oakland so there is an opening on the depth chart. But it's no sure thing that Ford's 4.28 40-yard speed will be back, and that's been his calling card ( he's struggled with the finer points of route-running). We deem it likely that Rod Streater starts opposite Denarius Moore, while Ford focuses on kickoff returns.
95. Harry Douglas, Atl WRYEARTARRECYDSAVGTDRUSHYDSTDPTS
2012 Statistics593839610.4124039
2013 Projections553840410.6114046
2013 Outlook: On another team, the shifty Douglas might be a No. 2 wideout you could get excited about. But on a roster that features Roddy White, Julio Jones and Tony Gonzalez, Douglas has to settle for being one of the best catch-starved slot men in the league. He gained 15-plus yards on an impressive seven of his 39 catches last season, and often finds himself singled up on linebackers. He just doesn't get the ball enough. Douglas never had more than five grabs in a game all year in 2012, and has exactly one TD in each of his four pro seasons.
96. Quinton Patton, SF WRYEARTARRECYDSAVGTDRUSHYDSTDPTS
2012 Statistics------------------
2013 Projections422635313.6200047
2013 Outlook: Patton was ultra-productive at Louisiana Tech against inferior competition, but his skills may eventually translate to the NFL. A fluid athlete and pro-level route-runner, he also has nice hands and good enough speed to turn into a legit outside NFL receiver. In his rookie campaign, he'll be a candidate to return punts and kicks, but might not factor on offense; after Michael Crabtree tore an Achilles, the 49ers have tried several veterans in their receiving corps, and traded for Jon Baldwin. Patton is only the stuff of deeper dynasty leagues for now.
97. Marlon Moore, Mia WRYEARTARRECYDSAVGTDRUSHYDSTDPTS
2012 Statistics11611619.3119016
2013 Projections412632112.3100038
2013 Outlook: Moore has 12 catches in his three-year career, during which he barely hung around at the edge of the Dolphins' roster. But he's apparently impressed the 49ers this summer to the extent that they're considering starting him as their lead split end. Moore doesn't have much upside, and players like Jon Baldwin and Quinton Patton would be far more interesting for fantasy purposes, but we can't completely rule out the possibility of a breakout for Moore.
98. Ace Sanders, Jac WRYEARTARRECYDSAVGTDRUSHYDSTDPTS
2012 Statistics------------------
2013 Projections473840010.5100044
2013 Outlook: Sanders has wrested the Jags' slot receiving job as a rookie, and submitted a few impressive runs after the catch during preseason games this summer. Of course, as interesting a playmaker as Sanders might eventually be, there's only so much damage he's likely to do in this Jacksonville offense, with some combination of Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne throwing it to him. But Sanders is a nice name to file away for dynasty leaguers.
99. Jon Baldwin, SF WRYEARTARRECYDSAVGTDRUSHYDSTDPTS
2012 Statistics472032516.3100034
2013 Projections432229013.2100033
2013 Outlook: Baldwin's first impression as a rookie with the Chiefs was breaking his thumb during a weight-room altercation with Thomas Jones, and it's been downhill from there. A former first-rounder, Baldwin caught 41 passes in two seasons with KC, but made tons of mental mistakes. Now he's been dealt to the Niners, where Jim Harbaugh will attempt to convert Baldwin's raw talents into production. Good luck, coach. There's definitely room in the 49ers' receiving corps, but we'd bet heavily against a major contribution from Baldwin in 2013.
100. Brian Quick, StL WRYEARTARRECYDSAVGTDRUSHYDSTDPTS
2012 Statistics281115614.2200023
2013 Projections382228713.0100032
2013 Outlook: Quick struggled to make the jump from Appalachian State to the NFL, failing to translate his impressive athleticism into rookie production. This April, the Rams selected Tavon Austin with the No. 8 overall pick in the draft and figure to make him the focal point of their passing game. Unfortunately for Quick, Chris Givens and Austin Pettis have played ahead of him in the exhibition season. So while freakish athleticism is still there, it's tough to project a breakout in 2013 for Quick.
