Week 7 is upon us and thus we will be without the services of the Saints and Raiders this week. But that is perfectly alright considering the following two weeks will send a collective twelve teams on a bye. But before we get too ahead of ourselves let’s take a look at what this week has in store for us. Peyton Manning returns to Indianapolis in what will be a highly motivated game for both teams. Two of the worst defenses in football in the Vikings and Giants do battle on Monday Night which will create a very interesting dynamic as our Fantasy Games come down to the wire. Let’s get things started here with the complete Week 7 Player Rankings.
Week 3 is quite possibly the most important week of the Fantasy Football Season. There is a monumental difference between being 1-2 at the end of this week and 0-3. Furthermore, think about the big emotional difference in being 2-1 as opposed to 1-2? Not to mention that this is the last week until basically the Fantasy Playoffs where each team is playing. The next time this happens is Week 13! So, let’s sit back and take a look at who should be in & out of our lineups this week as told by the Week 3 Rankings:
It’s going to seem egotistical but I really hope that you guys pay close attention to my rankings this week as opposed to some of the others that are out there. It amazes me every damn year how dramatic Fantasy Analysts change their mind on players based on a one week performance. But every year heading into week 2 you will notice rankings in which all of the big performers from week 1 are somehow included. It is called chasing and it literally disgusts me to my very core. As you will see in my Week 2 Rankings I am predicting comeback weeks for players like David Wilson, James Jones and Stevan Ridley while others are hyping up Julius Thomas, Joique Bell and Terrelle Pryor. You will thank me later for keeping my sanity in a world of front runners and chasers I can guarantee you that. Here are the Week 2 Rankings:
It is time to transition from draft strategy and ADP’s into usage and matchups. Indeed it is the start to another NFL season. Week 1 is always very difficult to handicap because of all the offseason changes and the general tom foolery that the NFL puts us through in the preseason. Luckily for our dear readers I have been paying very close attention to everything that has happened since the Ravens were hoisting the Lombardi Trophy. These are my Fantasy Football Rankings For Week 1:
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.
After two subpar weeks, Wes Welker bounced back big time last week with over 100 yards receiving and two touchdowns. We will find two Patriots receivers in the top 20 of the rankings this week. You will also find two Giants wide receivers in the top 20 as Victor Cruz is becoming a favorite target of Eli Manning. Stevie Johnson dropped three potential touchdown passes and not only shot himself in the foot in celebration, but also shot the Bills in the foot with an excessive celebration penalty. Andre Johnson is suffering without Matt Schaub in the lineup and will now have T.J. Yates as his quarterback. Can we expect much out of Johnson with Yates throwing him the ball? Will Dez Bryant be a factor for the Cowboys for all four quarters and not just two of them? How do Riley Cooper and Jason Avant stand after their big weeks? What can we expect from Miles Austin as he returns from injury? Get all over your answers to your fantasy lineup questions with this week’s wide receiver rankings.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you out there in fantasyland, and here's to hoping that you are all thankful for still being in contention in your leagues here in Week 12. As you will see below, I hope that you have many Lions and Packers if you plan on staying in the thick of the hunt when this weekend's games are over as I am looking for an aerial show on Turkey Day. Of all of the questions we have entering the final weekend in November, the most important would be what to expect from Andre Johnson in his first game back, especially with a new quarterback. Where the hell has Wes Welker been the past few weeks? How did Calvin Johnson not have a touchdown when Stafford threw five of them? Why is DeSean Jackson such an A-Hole? Can we expect Laurent Robinson's magic to continue? it is just a couple of weeks until the fantasy playoffs and in order to make the right choices do not miss the Week 12 Wide Receiver rankings.
