The sky is blue. The earth is round. You need oxygen to live. Peyton Manning is likely to struggle in a postseason game when the temperature at kickoff is below 40 degrees. Some things are obvious. Unfortunately, the obvious is not always so obvious in the National Football League and fantasy football. In fact, things tend to change often from one season to the next. Sure, your fantasy superstars are almost always going to put up gangbusters totals in the stat sheets (well, unless you're Chris Johnson). However, drafting a fantasy team isn't as simple as looking back at the previous season's stats and making your selections.

Is Dez Bryant a lock to be a superstar again in 2013? Are you sold on Eric Decker as an elite wide receiver? Well, maybe past stats can help us find out what the future holds. Below is a look at the top 10 wide receivers (based on points) in the last six years, and how those players fared the following season. The results and turnover percentage are well, not so obvious.
