Preseason Fantasy Rankings: WRs 1-10

New, 7 comments

Here's one of the dirty little secrets of fantasy football  -- the top wide recievers are much more reliable than the top running backs.  Draft one of these guys and 1000 yards and 5+ TDs is practically a lock.  You can't say that about the top ten RBs.

Fitzgerald, Larry

ARZ

He's feeling the love from his great 2008 season and Super Bowl performances, but how much would the loss of Boldin affect him? (Answer: A lot)

2

Johnson, Andre

HOU

The greatest offensive player in the NFL today that 80% of fans have never heard of.  The Texans just might put it all together this year.

3

Moss, Randy

NE

At this point he's making it look routine. 

4

Jennings, Greg

GB

In a few years, he might be the best WR in the league.

5

White, Roddy

ATL

He's put up 2,584 rec yards the past two seasons with a group of QBs that were either rookies or bums.  It's pretty amazing when you think about it.  This year, Matt Ryan is neither a rookie nor a bum.

6

Johnson, Calvin

DET

He's an amazing talent, but he needs to somebody else to step up and take the pressure off him.

7

Wayne, Reggie

IND

The rebuilt Colts running game will make his life a little bit easier.

8

Boldin, Anquan

ARZ

This ranking is based on him staying in Arizona, although there are a few teams where he'd keep this position.

9

Marshall, Brandon

DEN

He won't miss a beat with Kyle Orton...assuming he's still in Denver.  If he goes somewhere else throw this ranking out the window.

10

Ochocinco, Chad

CIN

A healthy Carson Palmer and no Housh means 85 is once again the star of his team.  He likes it that way.  He'll be happy.  A happy Ochocinco is a productive Ochocinco.
