It is potentially the last game of the season for your fantasy teams, as most leagues are crowning a champion in Week 16, and it is the perfect time for the Pittsburgh Steelers to be playing the awful, awful Rams secondary. You will find both of their top receivers in the top 20, including Mr. Wallace here at the top. Larry Fitzgerald may have cost you last week with his awful production, but if he didn't lose it for you, expect a big turnaround in this game against the Bengals. Will the Giants' passing game bounce back? Can Calvin follow up with another gem? What about New England? Does anyone else have the Moves Like Welker? If you have been following us all season long here at Fantasy Alarm, we thank you and wish you the best and hope you enjoy the 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.
The position that seemed to gain the most steam in 2011 in fantasy football was wide receivers. They never would be even thought of in the first round in years past, but this season I saw as many as four in the first twelve picks. Of course the highlight of the week was Wes Welker's 99 yard touchdown reception on Monday night, but also Calvin Johnson proved once again that he is just completely unguardable. Dez Bryant looked like he was going to take the next step towards fantasy stardom, and Kenny Britt he can run on the field too, not just from the police. The passing games across the NFL were in sync like never before, and now you have to wonder if that trend will continue. From Calvin Johnson to Dominik Hixon, take a look at who will be the top 50 performers in the world of wide receivers in Week 2.
