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.
Fantasy players from coast to coast are counting their blessings that both Calvin Johnson and Steve Smith will be back after their byes, and they are 1-2 in the rankings this week. We will be without Miles Austin again for a few weeks, and you might be surprised just how much I like Laurent Robinson this week, and while Austin is out. Cincinnati rookie A.J. Green continues to rise up the rankings as I gain more and more confidence in him and quarterback Andy Dalton. Will this be the week Andre Johnson comes back? Is this the week that MIke Williams finally has a good game? Can Julio Jones back up his big performance from last week? Will Hakeem Nicks, Andre Johnson, or Wes Welker play this week? Why does Jeff Mans have frosted tips? There is no answer to that one, but any question you have at wide receiver can be answered by your Week 10 rankings.
Who will be the top wide receiver in Week 9 in the NFL? This week we welcome Larry Fitzgerald to the top of the list, regardless of the performance of the quarterback in the desert this season. You will find one surprising name in the top 20 this week I think, and it is a player that we expected to be there every week before the season started, but has disappointed time after time after time. Other than that we have a lot of similar names among the top ranked guys. Can the Bengals' passing game continue to impress? What about the Bills? Do we see a resurgence in San Diego after a miserable loss on Monday night? What about Michael Crabtree? Is he ready to live up to the hype? How about Brandon Lloyd in his new home? Before setting your lineups be sure to take a look at the Week 9 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.
