Here's an updated listing of my top 75 wide receivers in standard-scoring leagues.

This countdown may undergo one more change before opening night (Cowboys-Giants on Sept. 5). But right now, it's a reasonably accurate profile of my preseason rationale.

Note: For the time being, I have removed Colts receiver Austin Collie (possible concussion) from the list.
