If you’ve managed to stay in contention this far while also hanging onto a good amount of your free agent dollars, than you are in good shape my friends. As you will see in this weeks rankings, there are some names that have surged in value over the past few weeks and whom may be still available on your waiver wire right now. The position of need this week is obviously RB because not only are there few RB’s to trust, four of them (Marshawn Lynch, Adrian Peterson, Chris Johnson and Ahmad Bradshaw) are off this week. Here are the players that will get you over the hump this last week of bye’s and help you move closer to securing that coveted playoff spot:
There are just two more weeks of bye’s for NFL teams which means that if you have made it this far you jut might be in it for the long haul young man (or women...but probably man). At this point in the season you should be just about done trading and have your every week lineup for the second half of the season settled. Also, if you saved your free agent dollars like a good boy (or girl…but probably boy) than you have been rewarded this week with several real good pickups out on the waiver wire. As you will see in these weekly rankings I am super high on a couple players who are still available in 80% of fantasy leagues right now. Here are my rankings for week 10:
Hopefully you have all survived the Frankenstorm out east and are right now sitting somewhere warm and dry while trying to figure out your fantasy football lineups for this week. If you don’t have any Patriots on your roster then chances are you are in good shape this week. The only other teams off are the 49ers, Rams and Jets whom combined have ½ a useful fantasy player. Here are my official week 9 rankings:
We’re at the midway point of the fantasy football regular season. Where you go from here will primarily be determined by how well you manage your team from here on out. Stop hoping for another breakout player jumping up on the waiver wire who’ll rescue your season or a trade that you must make to survive. If you haven’t made those moves or found those players yet than you’re in trouble my friends. But fear not I say!! For I have the answers to all your week 8 problems right here in the weekly fantasy rankings:
This is the mountain we have all been climbing towards. Six teams are off this week including some of the most fantasy noteworthy teams like the Broncos, Chargers, Eagles and Falcons. Oh, the Chiefs and Dolphins are also not playing but each of those teams have maybe 1 usable player each. So, this week we are going to have to rely on role players to get us over the hump and hopefully squeak out a win. I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve and you’ll find out exactly who they are in this weeks rankings:
The biggest tip I can offer for this week is pay attention to the injury report. Last week there were quite a few injuries that went under reported and have resulted in some interesting shakeups especially among the RB position. Also, notice that there are some marquee matchups this week including the Giants/49ers, Packers/Texans, Patriots/Seahawks and Broncos/Chargers. These matchups will tempt you to bench some of your better players for those with seemingly easier matchups. Bad idea. Big time players step up in big time games. The road to a fantasy football championship ain’t always easy my friends, but that is why I bring you the week 6 rankings:
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.
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.
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.
I guess the Chargers seem to be back and doing their usual December rush to the playoffs after dismantling the Jags on Monday Night, although I think my local high school team would be able to cover the spread against the Jags right now. We are entering what should be the first week of the fantasy playoffs with your team, so if you are reading this, congratulations on getting this far, you must have a pretty decent roster, and hopefully all of your wide receivers are on this list. Will Andre Johnson be an elite receiver down the stretch or was I right to call him over rated on our Sirius/XM radio show (5-8pm EST Saturday and 7-10pm EST Sunday on Sirius 210/XM 87 by the way)? Is Mike Wallace ready to have a strong finish? Will Larry Fitzgerald be crippled by poor quarterback play? How long can Victor Cruz keep this up? When setting this all important roster, be sure to see who we have where in the wide receiver rankings.
