It is the fantasy football playoffs and the wide receiver is the most wide open position in the game. Which studs can you count on down the stretch as even Calvin Johnson has disappeared over the past couple of weeks? How much damage can the Dallas Cowboys trifecta do on Saturday against the Buccaneers? What about the guys in New England? I really like Roddy White and Brandon Marshall this week as well. It is make or break time in the fantasy playoffs and you have to stay up to date with the Week 15 wide receiver rankings.
After two subpar weeks, Wes Welker bounced back big time last week with over 100 yards receiving and two touchdowns. We will find two Patriots receivers in the top 20 of the rankings this week. You will also find two Giants wide receivers in the top 20 as Victor Cruz is becoming a favorite target of Eli Manning. Stevie Johnson dropped three potential touchdown passes and not only shot himself in the foot in celebration, but also shot the Bills in the foot with an excessive celebration penalty. Andre Johnson is suffering without Matt Schaub in the lineup and will now have T.J. Yates as his quarterback. Can we expect much out of Johnson with Yates throwing him the ball? Will Dez Bryant be a factor for the Cowboys for all four quarters and not just two of them? How do Riley Cooper and Jason Avant stand after their big weeks? What can we expect from Miles Austin as he returns from injury? Get all over your answers to your fantasy lineup questions with this week’s 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.
