I am in the finals of an unprecedented 32 team fantasy football league, and if you are wondering the pictures of all of the guys on the Week 17 rankings are all guys that I have on what I hope to be a championship winning roster. Dez Bryant has been my man all season long as well as Early Doucet at wide receiver, which I know doesn't sound great, but when it is 32 teams, it isn't that bad. But what about the rest of the NFL? Can Calvin do it one more time? Wat about Marques Colston, Vincent Jackson, and AJ Green? How about New England and Houston that have their positions locked up? Don't go into the last week of the season without reading the Week 17 wide receiver rankings.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you out there in fantasyland, and here's to hoping that you are all thankful for still being in contention in your leagues here in Week 12. As you will see below, I hope that you have many Lions and Packers if you plan on staying in the thick of the hunt when this weekend's games are over as I am looking for an aerial show on Turkey Day. Of all of the questions we have entering the final weekend in November, the most important would be what to expect from Andre Johnson in his first game back, especially with a new quarterback. Where the hell has Wes Welker been the past few weeks? How did Calvin Johnson not have a touchdown when Stafford threw five of them? Why is DeSean Jackson such an A-Hole? Can we expect Laurent Robinson's magic to continue? it is just a couple of weeks until the fantasy playoffs and in order to make the right choices do not miss the Week 12 Wide Receiver rankings.
Has any wide receiver been more of a disappointment than Roddy White? I know we usually finish the introduction with a few questions, but I think that it is worthy of it here. I had Roddy White in the top five of my preseason rankings and he has let me down more than any other player, but I like his matchup this week against the Titans, and he is waaaaaay overdue for a really big game. Julio Jones is looking iffy for this game (and I haven't taken him off of the rankings this week), which could mean more openings for Mr. White in the end zone, with the football. We have a lot of wide receivers that were banged up last week, so between that and the last bye weeks, the position is a little thinner than usual but there are still plenty of good options for you. Can Dez Bryant and Hakeem Nicks actually play well throughout a game or will they continue to be very inconsistent.? Is there anything stopping the Packers passing attack? Will Stevie Johnson bounceback? The answer to all of life's issues are right here in the Week 11 fantasy wide receiver rankings.
As always, the wide receiver position is the one that changes the most from week to week and from month to month. I have a new man love and he comes from the Buckeye State and is my favorite to come in SECOND in the race for Offensive Rookie of the Year behind Cam Newton. Speaking of Cam, his emergence has brought new fantasy value to that team's top receiver and has once again made him a top ten average at the position. There is also a new top dog, or so it seems in Oakland, and he has also made his way to the top ten of this week's rankings. I have also found a correctino in rankings for guys like Marques Colston, Roddy White, and Mike Williams. Where do these guys end up this week? You will have to find out for yourselves in this week's wide receiver rankings.
It has been the year of the wide receiver so far in fantasy football as you have Calvin Johnson catching two touchdowns a week and Wes Welker absolutely tearing up opposing secondaries. As with my declaration with Cam Newton in the quarterback rankings, I am going to make the same about A.J. Green here. He is going to be a guy you want to start every week people! The guy is going to be a fantasy producer each and every week and needs to be in your lineups any time he is on the field. I have also found that I am liking Sidney Rice more than I thought I did, and I am starting to sour some on Mike Williams of Tampa Bay. What else can you expect from your wide receivers this week? Enjoy reading below in the Week 5 wide receiver rankings.
All I know is one thing. I've got a fever! And the only cure is more Sanzenbacher! The Bears' undrafted free agent wide receiver caught a touchdown for the second consecutive game, and even though he is short and white, he has at least gained my attention. In a short pass, pass happy offense, Sanzenbacher is at least worth a roster spot as long as he is producing. Injuries to stars such as Hakeem Nicks and Dez Bryant again make setting your rosters difficult, and what can you count on from Marques Colston in his first game back from injury (here's a hint, he ain't on this list!). I would also like to point out to the person who tweeted Fantasy Alarm this past weekend that I had forgotten to include Brandon Marshall that I knew that he wasn't going to have a big week and that is why he wasn't on the list.........ok, that's not true, it was my mistake, but hey it sounded good for a second! Wide receiver is definitely the most fluid and deep position in fantasy football, but it is also the hardest to gauge as it seems sometimes that guys' fortunes change greatly from week to week. However, the league has turned into a pass heavy sport, so the decisions you make here are probably the most crucial of your week.
Week 3 of the NFL season is right around the corner and the wide receiver picture looks very differently already in just the first two weeks of the season. Receivers in Carolina aren't looking as badly as we thought before the season started, while the situation in Indianapolis continues to look bleak. Is rookie A.J. Green going to continue what he did in Week 2? How many points are the Chargers going to put up against the Chiefs this week? What effect will Jerome Simpson's "delivery" have on his fantasy value? Will we be in awe of Ochocinco's statistics? Below are how I think the third week of the season is going to play out and so much more in the world of wide receivers.
