Below are my WR ranks for the rest of the season. Any point totals are done based on a 1/2 PPR scoring system.
1. Calvin Johnson, DET – Still the best in the game.
2. Percy Harvin, MIN – Top scorer through 5 weeks and he only has 1 receiving TD!
3. A.J. Green, CIN – No sophomore slump for Green who is tearing it up
4. Victor Cruz, NYG – Much as I hate the Giants their offense looks hot and Cruz is leading the way.
5. Roddy White, ATL – Having Jones on the same team doesn’t seem to be hurting his high value.
6. Brandon Marshall, CHI – Once again on pace for over 100 receptions and it’s nice to see him have a QB not named Henne or Orton.
7. Julio Jones, ATL – The Falcon offense has plenty of targets to go around.
8. Wes Welker, NE – The week 1 poor showing is a thing of the past and Welker is once again leading the Patriot receiving corps.
9. Demarius Thomas, DEN – Who? He’s Peyton’s favorite WR this season and that has never hurt anyone’ value.
10. Reggie Wayne, IND – Speaking of people Peyton loves, Wayne is off to a career year and he’s supposed to be old.
11. Hakeem Nicks, NYG – Injuries have hampered him early but he’s been dominant when healthy.
12. Larry Fitzgerald, ARI – Probably a top 2 WR in talent but being in Arizona has killed a lot of his value.
13. Mike Wallace, PIT – Tons of speed but teams design their defense around him.
14. Marques Colston, NO – Brees spreads the ball around a lot but being the top WR on the Saints comes with a lot of points.
15. Andre Johnson, HOU – Yuck. Part of the best offense in the AFC not in New England and still can’t rack up the points. Throw in the injury and he’s a shadow of himself.
16. Dwayne Bowe, KC – His height has given him a huge matchup advantage.
17. Antonio Brown, PIT – At least 74 yards in each game this season, he could end up being the best receiver on the Steelers.
18. Greg Jennings, GB – Hopefully done with his injury issues, being the top WR on the Packers is a huge spot to be in.
19. Vincent Jackson, TB – Clearly the go to man in Tampa but the offense is far from elite.
20. Steve Smith, CAR – Still incredibly talented but the offense is stalling.
21. Jordy Nelson, GB – Nelson needs Jennings playing to get open but when he is, he makes big plays.
22. Eric Decker, DEN – At least 10 points in each of the last 3 weeks with a minimum of 7 on the year makes him a great option.
23. Brandon Lloyd, NE – Slow start for Lloyd but the Patriots offense is getting their identity back and Lloyd is the deep threat.
24. Miles Austin, DAL – The Cowboys have to figure it out offensively eventually and Austin is the best on the team.
25. Torrey Smith, BAL – Initially I thought he was a fluke last year and he still isn’t consistent but Flacco looks to him deep a few times every game.
26. DeSean Jackson, PHI – Despite the Eagles looking lost, Jackson has put together a nice start to the season.
27. Steve Johnson, BUF – Being on the Bills means consistency is hard to come by but he certainly has explosiveness.
28. Dez Bryant, DAL – The man could be a top 10 WR if he gets his head out of his arse but he’s still a strong option until that happens.
29. Anquan Boldin, BAL – Averaging almost 8 targets per week and is the go to guy for a first down in Baltimore.
30. Micheal Crabtree, SF – With the exception of week 4 against the Jets, Crabtree has put up at least 7 points. He doesn’t have too many big games in him though.
31. Jeremy Maclin, PHI – He’s been battling injury but until he puts together a great game I’m a bit hesitant.
32. Malcolm Floyd, SD – Best option for Rivers but not dominant.
33. James Jones, GB – His recent big games have been with Jennings out. I think he’ll still have good numbers but not 2 scores a week.
34. Denarius Moore, OAK – Finally done with injury issues (hopefully) and he’s bound for some big games.
35. Lance Moore, NO – Brees spreads the ball too much to say Moore will get a ton of targets but the Saints pass enough for him to get a few looks.
36. Brian Hartline, MIA – Averaging OVER 10 targets per game and has almost 6 catches a game which is great news but if teams start doubling up on Hartline he’ll be in trouble.
37. Pierre Garcon, WAS – Injured all year but in week 1 he looked to be a great option.
38. Randall Cobb, GB – Cobb has been getting worked into the Packer offense more and more but with Jennings coming back it’s unclear how much work he’ll get.
39. Kenny Britt, TEN – Another injury issue candidate but if he gets healthy he could get some huge numbers. Without Locker his value is limited though.
40. Andre Roberts, ARI – Great start to the season but he needs to hope the Cardinals offense can stay active enough.
41. Brandon LaFell, CAR – Looked to be a pickup of the year candidate but the Panthers offense has looked bad in the past few weeks.
42. Donnie Avery, IND – See above except it’s not a bad offense but Reggie Wayne getting every target.
43. Mike Williams, TB – He’s been finding the endzone but not getting a lot of targets.
44. Andrew Hawkins, CIN – The box of chocolates of WRs.
45. Sidney Rice, SEA – Top receiving option on the team but they have been so pedestrian through the air this year.
46. Robert Meachum, SD – Few good weeks for the year but nothing special.
47. Jeremy Kerley, NYJ – Picking a Jet for anything scares me but Kerley has been rather consistent and putting up some pretty good numbers.
48. Devery Henderson, NO – See Lance Moore.
49. Mario Manningham, SF – Always will get a few catches but that might be it.
50. Davone Bess, MIA – Bess has been getting almost everything the Dolphins throw that doesn’t go to Hartline.
