Intro to 2006 WR Rankings

Wide receiver is the fantasy football equivalent of outfielders in fantasy baseball.  There are so many who start.  As such, the rankings of the players begin to bleed into each until the 40th WR and the 50th WR are nearly indistinguishable.

I've put up my rankings of the top 32 WRs.  Why 32?  There are 32 teams in the NFL.  No other reason for the arbitrary choice.

You will also notice that the top receivers from the Patriots, Jets, Bears and 49ers are not included in those 32.  This is not because I don't think those teams are incapable of having a 1000 yard receiver.  It is just unlikely.

I know there were only 20 1,000 yard receiver in 2005, too.  What I've done is include the obvious top WRs along with a couple handfuls of sleepers.  (Aha!  That explains Braylon Edwards!)

There also many WRs who will easily get drafted that are not on the list i.e Deion Branch in NE, Mushin Muhammad with the Bears (a must-go-up play) and Laverneus Coles with the Jets.

I intend to add them into my WR Rankings Part II.
