Before we get started with the full list, here are three guys who just missed the top 10.
Jason Witten, Dallas Cowboys, TE - If you're playing in a PPR league, and you missed out on the elite tight ends at the top of the charts, feel confident that Jason Witten will deliver for you in 2013.
Since 2007, Witten has 79 or more catches in every season, with a career yards per catch average around 11. In other words, you can count on 80 catches for 800-900 yards with a few touchdowns, which is more production than you can expect from any of the mid-to-late round tight ends.
And after last season's breakout performance from Witten, you can have hopes of even higher production. If Tony Romo can find a way to get Witten the ball in the red zone more often, he could have an amazing season.
Stevan Ridley, New England Patriots, RB - If you're in a standard league, and you're drafting in the 10-14 range, you can't find a safer running back than Stevan Ridley.
The Patriots actually like to run the football, contrary to what you might believe. In an article for ESPNBoston.com late last year, Mike Reiss pointed out that the Patriots ran the ball 34.5 times per game at the time of writing. Ridley got the lion's share of these carries, as he would take a handoff 290 times in 2012.
But Ridley's value isn't just from his opportunity. He averaged 4.4 yards per carry last year, and started off the preseason with an impressive 8 carries for 92 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles. He's ready to handle the workload at running back in New England, and all indications are that he'll continue to carry the offense from a running perspective.
Matt Bryant, Atlanta Falcons, K -I couldn't bring myself to put Bryant in the top 10, because I don't believe in taking kickers before the last round of a fantasy draft. But Bryant is so rock solid, and in such a good situation, that he might be worth it.
He gets to kick indoors for more than half of his games, as his home contests are played in the Georgia Dome, and he travels once per year to the Superdome to play the New Orleans Saints.
And since taking over as the Atlanta kicker on a full-time basis, he's knocked home 86% or more of his field goal opportunities every year, and has added 44, 45, and 44 extra points in his three years as the starting kicker with the Falcons.
The Atlanta offense is going to be high-powered yet again this season, so he's going to get opportunities. So if you insist on taking a kicker early, snag Matt Bryant and don't worry about the kicker position for the rest of the year.
