Upside to the the number one receiver year after year but that means you would have to have faith in Andy Dalton

Mammoth upside only capped by Tony Romo going away from him in the passing game continuously

A.J. Green is In a contract year and chose not to hold out during the pre-season. Led the NFL in yards per route run (YPRR) last season at 2.96. YPRR is calculated by receiving yards (1041), divided by snaps in route (352) = 2.96. Green missed 3 games last season with a toe injury, but is now fully healed.

With the success of the Dallas rushing game last season, Dez Bryant continued to be limited to 88 receptions last season (12th overall). But when he did catch the football, he made the best of the situation with his league leading receiving touchdowns (16). Bryant is seeking a new contract with more guaranteed money and a long term deal before the July 15th deadline. Running back Joseph Randle is no Demarco Murray, so look for the Dallas offense to make Dez Bryant more of the focal point this season. His fantasy playoff schedule includes a neutral matchup versus Oakland in week 14, a tough matchup at Pittsburgh in week 15, and a neutral matchup versus Cincinnati in week 16.

He now is officially a player with injury concern, but the total package at WR. He shouldn't have a problem posting over 1,200 yards and double digit TDs.

- James Hatfield, Hatty Waiver Wire Guru

TD machine and solid fantasy WR. He could push for the #1 WR in 2015 with combined yards over 1,500 and over 15 TDs. Draft with confidence.

Green missed 3 games last year and as a result, posted only 69 receptions for 1,041 yards and 6 receiving touchdowns. I expect a rebound year in 2015.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

Bryant led the NFL with 16 touchdowns in 2014 and he has scored 41 touchdowns the last three seasons. He has been franchised tagged this off-season while the Cowboys attempt to work out a long-term deal.

I want to put Green higher in the rankings than I have here, but there are just too many high-end possibilities at receiver this season. Green injured his toe early in 2014 and was hurting much of the season and ended up missing three games, as well as playing hurt through many more. We know what Green can do when healthy with back-to-back seasons where he hit 98 receptions 1,350 yards and 11 touchdowns. Those are numbers we can count on from a healthy Green, especially in a contract year.

- Chet Gresham, WalterFootball

Bryant ranked 12th in targets last season but third in fantasy points for wide receivers. His efficiency in the red zone was a big reason for that, as he caught 16 touchdowns. Amazingly, Bryant only had 15 targets inside the red zone last year, which tied him for 18th most for wide receivers, but he still managed eight touchdowns from those 15 targets, which tied him for the second most behind Randall Cobb. It will be tough for Bryant to hit 16 touchdowns again, but with DeMarco Murray gone, the Cowboys' rushing game will be less efficient, and Bryant will again be the best red-zone- - in fact, for any part of the field - option Dallas has. The touchdowns might not hit 16 again, but there is a chance they will, plus we'll also see an uptick in targets receptions and yards.

Primed for a big bounce-back after an injury filled, underwhelming 2014 campaign.

Targets should increase as the Dallas running game returns to earth this year.
