UPDATED AUG. 7

-- Not a ton of changes in the top tiers from my last update. I feel like I am too optimistic on Trey Burton -- I haven't forgotten about Adam Shaheen --  but I'm willing to die on that hill right now.

-- Moved O.J. Howard down a few spots. With Cameron Brate still around, I don't think his ceiling is as high as a few of the players directly in front of him this year.

-- I feel pretty confident about my top 15. I don't see anyone in that group dropping out of it, barring injury, suspension, etc. Past that, however, it's a huge free-for-all. I will own lots of Ricky Seals-Jones shares in deeper leagues, but if you think he shouldn't be in the top 25, I can see that. Conversely, if you think someone such as Vance McDonald should be higher, I wouldn't push back hard on that either. Go with your gut for your TE2, basically.

These ranks assume standard scoring.
