2010 Fantasy Football WR Rankings – Week 2

Sep 14, 2010

Here’s my Week 2 wide receiver rankings.


1. Andre Johnson – Can’t see him getting shut down again.
2. Larry Fitzgerald – Committed to getting him the ball.
3. DeSean Jackson – You have to feel bad for the DET secondary this week.
4. Reggie Wayne – Peyton has to show Eli who’s boss.
5. Steve Smith (CAR) – Kept in check by TB last year. Should bounce back.
6. Brandon Marshall – D looked good vs. NO, but have issues in secondary.
7. Miles Austin – Bears will have tough time with physical Austin.
8. Greg Jennings – Should torch Buffalo.
9. Wes Welker – Clearly he’s back.
10. Hakeem Nicks – Eli will need big plays from Nicks to match big bro.
11. Roddy White – Good play against Arizona.
12. Marques Colston – Niners gave up 3 TDs to Seattle last week.
13. Calvin Johnson – Too much size for Philly DBs, but will miss Stafford.
14. Dwayne Bowe – Should play well against Cleveland.
15. Chad Ochocinco – Usually up for the challenge vs. BAL.
16. Michael Crabtree – Saints made Vikes WR look bad.
17. Anquan Boldin – Ravens will lean on Boldin & Rice vs. CIN.
18. Pierre Garcon – Will test G-Men secondary.
19. Jeremy Maclin – Did somebody say Detroit?
20. Randy Moss – Has a date with Revis Island.
21. Percy Harvin – Plenty of time to work out kinks vs. MIA.
22. Hines Ward – Tennessee not an ideal match-up for Pitt passing attack.
23. Donald Driver – Lambeau Leap in  his future?
24. Terrell Owens – Ravens not the same without Ed Reed.
25. Steve Smith (NYG) – Eli will need Smith too.
26. Braylon Edwards – Pats have issues in their secondary.
27. Mike Wallace – Can see him taking one deep.
28. Jabar Gaffney – Should catch plenty of passes vs. SEA.
29. Steve Breaston – Big play ability vs. ATL.
30. Johnny Knox – Will need to throw to keep up with Dallas.
31. Jericho Cotchery – Jets will need to open playbook vs. NE.
32. Robert Meachem – Henderson scored last week so it’s his turn.
33. Malcom Floyd – Not the option we thought he’d be?
34. Mike Williams (TB) – Will test CAR secondary.
35. Eddie Royal – Played like his rookie season, which is a good thing.
36. Lee Evans – Locked up with Charles Woodson on the road.
37. Dez Bryant – Dallas has too many weapons to contain.
38. Legedu Naanee – Too much size for JAX DBs.
39. T.J. Houshmandzadeh – Sights set on his former team (CIN).
40. Mike Thomas – Mike Sims-Walker turned in a dud.

    I really think Santana Moss will go over 100 yards Sunday with little resistence.

    He could, but I’m not quite ready to trust him yet.

    Legedu Naanee scored very well week1. How should I interpret that? Why is Dwayne Bowe so high on your list after a poor week 1? [sincere questions, I am new]

    I’m not sure if Naanee is going to be the top WR for SD each week. Floyd could very well lead this week. Hard to predict until you watch for a few games.

    Bowe had a bad start, but I believe in him. I think he’ll bounce back.

    You can’t judge everything based on the first game. It’s tricky, and somewhat guess work and luck to know which ones are for real and which ones are flukes.

    Mike Sims-Walker, no love? This is his week to put up over 120 yards.

    what’s to love about him at this point? I know not the goose egg in Week 1. He’s averaged 25 yards per game in his last seven contests dating back to last year.
