Fantasy Football Cheat Sheets: Top 20 WR Rankings

2011 Top 20 Fantasy Wide Receivers

Fantasy Football Draft Guide – Are you getting pumped yet about the impending NFL Season? I am too. With the excitement comes the realization that Fantasy Rosters are going to come to fruition in the next six or so weeks.


That said, it is time for Dave B’s Top 20 Wide Receivers and a brief explanation as to why or why not to draft your favorite Star. 

Take a look and don’t be scared to let me know what you think, all queries are read and will be rebutted!  

1.      Andre Johnson (Houston) – Johnson has averaged 1500 yards receiving in the last three years and only injury stopped him from gaining 1500 last season. He averaged double digit targets in all 13 games he played last year and proved once again that he is the most reliable Fantasy Wideout in the game. Johnson is money in the bank.

2.      Calvin Johnson (Detroit) – Megatron proved that he doesn’t need an elite QB throwing him the ball but a healthy Matt Stafford will certainly help. Johnson caught 12 TD passes in 2010 and proved that he can stay healthy. He has scary upside and is officially elite.

3.      Roddy White (Atlanta) – White led the NFL in targets and catches (by a mile) last season. The addition of Julio Jones may dip into his production a tad but it will more likely create some more room for this elite talent.

4.      Greg Jennings (Green Bay) – For the first time, Jennings doesn’t necessarily have to worry about a co-#1 receiver – Donald Driver, Jordy Nelson and James Jones are clear second options. Jennings is a Stud and Jermichael Finley will only serve to open up more holes for Mr. Jennings.

5.      Hakeem Nicks (New York Giants) – Nicks exploded last season and there is no reason to think that he won’t continue his meteoric rise. He is clearly Eli Manning’s favorite target – reliable in the open field and especially in the Red Zone.

6.      Mike Wallace (Pittsburgh) – Wallace is an immense talent that clearly has the trust of Ben Roethlisberger. He had 6 100+ yard games in the final nine games of the season and appears ready to ascent to elite status. 

7.      Larry Fitzgerald (Arizona) – Fitzgerald is undoubtedly one of the most gifted Wide Receivers in the game. Only poor Quarterback play has hindered his numbers. With rumors of Kevin Kolb coming to town, be excited about Fitzgerald’s bounce back season.

8.      Reggie Wayne (Indianapolis) – A few factors allow Wayne to slip to #1 – a balky knee, Peyton’s injury concerns and the presence of Dallas Clark and Austin Collie. Still Wayne had 111 catches last season and is worthy of a Top 10 ranking.

9.      Vincent Jackson (San Diego) – If only Jackson played a full season last year! He is an elite talent catching balls from an elite Quarterback – nuff said!

10.  Miles Austin (Dallas) – Dez Bryant, if healthy should cut into Austin’s production – should. Still, I’d take the more reliable, more dependable player and have no issue expecting 1200 yards and 8-10 touchdowns.

11.  DeSean Jackson (Philadelphia) – All it takes is one play for Jackson to win you a week. He may not get 8 catches but all he needs is 3. Explosion personified!

12.  Dwayne Bowe (Kansas City) – Bowe finally appears as though he “gets it”.  His head finally seems right and his play has followed – he led the league in tds. last season with 15. Bowe could be a steal in this year’s draft. [ad-8469823]

13.  Mike Williams (Tampa Bay) – Williams scored 11 tds. in his rookie year and should be better this season.

14.  Jeremy Maclin (Philadelphia) – Maclin may be the best second option in the NFL. As the possession guy in a pass heavy offense, Maclin won’t disappoint.

15.  Wes Welker (New England) – Welker is still a beauty and could catch 100 balls again. The problem is that he doesn’t score a ton and there is a variety of options at Tom Brady’s disposal. Welker is a very good WR2 however.


16.  Brandon Lloyd (Denver) – Lloyd’s performance last season should have vaulted him to WR1 status. But with a new conservative coach and an unsettled QB situation, Lloyd becomes a worthwhile gamble rather than a sure thing.

17.  Austin Collie (Indianapolis) – Collie is a bit of a risk due to his injury history but when he is right he is very, very good. Monitor the situation. If he is 100% take a chance.

18.  Santonio Holmes (New York Jets) – Holmes looks to be the #1 receiver on a very good team. With Braylon Edwards likely moving on, Holmes looks like a lock to continue his strong play.

19.  Dez Bryant (Dallas) – Bryant is an insane talent who plays in a very good offense. If he can channel Dwayne Bowe and get his head straight, Bryant could be Top 10 by season’s end.

20.  Marques Colston (New Orleans) – It’s pretty tough to pick the Saint that will steal the spotlight every week but there is no question that Colston is the best of the bunch. He should be good for 1000 yards and 8-10 scores.

Pre-season is nearly upon us (we hope), so for the next few weeks we encourage you to be checking out our FANTASY FOOTBALL DRAFT GUIDE for all your rankings and analysis for the upcoming league drafts that you’re going to be participating in.
