2010 Fantasy Football WR Rankings – Week 1

Sep 6, 2010


Here’s my Week 1 wide receiver rankings.


1. Andre Johnson – Best WR in the game.
2. Reggie Wayne – Still Peyton’s favorite toy.
3. Larry Fitzgerald – Should torch St. Louis.
4. Greg Jennings – I’m expecting big thing from Jennings, starting Week 1.
5. Randy Moss – Always a threat to score, especially at home.
6. Marques Colston – Faces Vikes who have issues in their secondary.
7. Calvin Johnson – Had 14 catches for 219 yards vs. Bears last year.
8. Chad Ochocinco – New England’s secondary is a mess.
9. Miles Austin – 13 catches for 139 yards vs. Skins last year.
10. DeSean Jackson – Stiff neck and facing Charles Woodson.
11. Roddy White – Faces Pitt, who should be better defensively.
12. Michael Crabtree – Should produce against Seattle.
13. Brandon Marshall – New start in South Beach vs. Bills.
14. Dwayne Bowe – Bounceback year starts vs. Chargers.
15. Percy Harvin – Favre will lean on Harvin vs. Saints.
16. Anquan Boldin – Revis is back, but he’ll likely be rusty.
17. Hines Ward – Mr. Dependable faces the Falcons (28th vs. pass last year)
18. Steve Smith (CAR) – We’ll find out if the Giants secondary is back.
19. Pierre Garcon – Should be shootout against Texans.
20. Johnny Knox – Kick off Martz era with a bang (vs. Detroit)
21. Wes Welker – Amazing he’s playing already. Brady will use him heavily.
22. Robert Meachem – Brees will find him if he gets open.
23. Mike Wallace – Will stretch the field against Atlanta.
24. Malcom Floyd – Philip Rivers’ top WR facing KC.
25. Steve Smith – Carolina had 4th best pass defense last year.
26. Devin Hester – Faces Detroit
27. Jeremy Maclin – Should benefit by not facing Al Harris.
28. Hakeem Nicks – See Steve Smith (NYG)
29. Lee Evans – If he only had a QB.
30. Mike Sims-Walker – Draws Champ Bailey.
31. Jabar Gaffney – Look for a pile of receptions.
32. Bernard Berrian – Had 9 catches last time they faced the Saints.
33. Donald Driver – How much does the old man have in his tank.
34. Steve Breaston – Faces St. Louis.
35. Mike Williams (TB) – Takes on Cleveland’s 29th ranked pass defense.
36. Jacoby Jones – Houston will need to air it out to keep up with Colts.
37. Braylon Edwards – Will test the Ravens’ defense.
38. Devery Henderson – Big play on the big stage?
39. Devin Aromashodu – Faces Detroit
40. Austin Collie – Manning should feed Collie as well.

    Good list, but I think Larry Fitz is too high. Don’t forget Derek Anderson is tossing the rock.

    I’ve an empty WR2 slot to fill and Bowe and Garcon are calling. Which one should is the better option? Bowe’s work ethic has been great, and Garcon caught a TD last time vs HOU.

    What do you think?

    I love Fitz’s match-up. We’ll see on him.

    I like Bowe a little better. Garcon has a lot of talent to share with.
