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.
Welcome back to fantasy relevance Marques Colston! Of course everyone on the Saints, including some of the fans, scored fantasy points last Sunday night, but Colston certainly has looked like the impressive rookie who once had tight end eligibility and ruled fantasy football. Thankfully for his fantasy owners, Wes Welker will be back on the field and I'm sure racking up the receptions against the Steelers. Where do guys who grabbed my attention last week rank for Week 8? That's right, I'm talking about Brandon Lloyd and Demaryius Thomas. Which Jackson, DeSean or Vincent, will have the better game? Will Andre Johnson be back? Your Week 8 matchup could make or break your season, so be sure to prepare by reading the wide receiver rankings.
Wow, this is a week where a lot of the star receivers are going to be out of lineups as the likes of Hakeem Nicks, DeSean Jackson, Wes Welker, and Stevie Johnson will all be on your fantasy benches this week. Who is going to step up and put up the points that you need to win your matchups? Mike Sims-Walker and Brandon Lloyd switched teams this week, which one might step up their game? There are a number of guys I like to step up this week like Greg Little in Cleveland, Torrey Smith in Baltimore, and Doug Baldwin in Seattle. There are also a number of newcomers to the wide receiver rankings this week as many of us will be making roster moves in order to fill out your lineups. Take a look at what you need to win in Week 7 by checking out these 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.
