Fantasy Wide Receiver Rankings

The interesting thing about the WR rankings is where to rank Brandon Marshall and Steve Smith? Both will be on suspension when the season begins, which hurts their fantasy value. But both are extremely valuable fantasy receivers.

1. Randy Moss, New England
2. Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona
3. Reggie Wayne, Indianapolis
4. Terrell Owens, Dallas
5. Torry Holt, St. Louis
6. Marques Colston, New Orleans
7. Braylon Edwards, Cleveland
8. Andre Johnson, Houston
9. Steve Smith, Carolina
10. Anquan Boldin, Arizona
11. Wes Welker, New England
12. Chad Johnson, Cincinnati
13. Roy Williams, Detroit
14. T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Cincinnati
15. Plaxico Burress, N.Y. Giants
16. Santonio Holmes, Pittsburgh
17. Jerrico Cotchery, N.Y. Jets
18. Lee Evans, Buffalo
19. Roddy White, Atlanta
20. Brandon Marshall, Denver

Don't be too scared off by the Boldin situation in Arizona. If he wants paid or to get out of there at the end of the year, he'll have a big season. Colston should be good with the addition of Jeremy Shockey to take some pressure off of him. Smith would go a couple of spots higher if not for the suspension. White kind of scares me because of his QB situation.

Much better than the RB list. Holt is too high, drop him down below Andre Johnson and then i almost agree totally with the rest.

I might argue that Fitzgerald at 2 is too high, but I'm assuming the announcement that Warner is the starter helped moved him up your board.

Yeah, that had something to do with it. Holt is amazingly consistent.

I HOPE YOUR PREDICTION ON MR. HOLMES IS CORRECT. YOU HAVE HIM RANKED WITH SOME GUYS WHO HAVE PUT UP SOME REALLY BIG NUMBERS IN THE RECENT PAST. I THINK MARVIN HARRISON COULD PROVE TO BE THE SLEEPER OF THE CENTURY.HE WAS SHOWING VERY LITTLE SLIPPAGE BEFORE HE WAS HURT LAST SEASON AND HE HAS ALWAYS BEEN A HARD WORKER. I THINK HE HAS BEEN MISTAKENLY GIVEN UP ON IN THE FANTASY REALM. ALSO, WATCH OUT FOR JOSH MORGAN ON THE 49ERS. OKAY, ENOUGH OF MY PIGSKIN WISDOM...MY OPPOSITION MAY BE READING!!!

VERY PARANOID.

Dale, I got Moss, Wayne, Chad and Cotchery on my team. I also have Ben, Addai, Shockey and the Chargers D. Tell me I didn't come out slick.

What is that, Bojangles, a five-team league? Just kidding. You should be good, though you can't play all those receivers.
Who's getting the ball to Josh Morgan, Sasquatch. They still don't have a capable QB.

The Incredible John Thomas O'Sullivan that is who will be throwing the ball to Josh Morgan. A couple of jolly ol' Irish boys.
