With another exciting week of football under our belts, here are the Lester’s Legends 2013 Week 15 fantasy football wide receiver rankings.
.
1. Calvin Johnson, Detroit Lions
Calvin Johnson is averaging 112.3 yards and a touchdown per game. He’s playing the Baltimore Ravens at home where he averages 130.2 yards per game. The Ravens have allowed 231.7 yard and 1.6 touchdowns per game.
.
2. Josh Gordon, Cleveland Browns
Josh Gordon is averaging 127.3 yards and 0.7 touchdowns per game. In his past three games he’s averaging 216.3 yards and 1.3 touchdowns per game. He should continue his dominance against the Chicago Bears.
.
3. Alshon Jeffery, Chicago Bears
Alshon Jeffrey has been a monster this year. I expect Brandon Marshall will have to deal with Joe Haden, which should lead to a big day for Jeffery. The Cleveland Browns have allowed 23 passing touchdowns.
.
4. Demaryius Thomas, Denver Broncos
Demaryius Thomas is averaging 88.4 yards and 0.8 touchdowns per game. He had 108 yards and three touchdowns in the first meeting with the San Diego Chargers.
.
5. Andre Johnson, Houston Texans
Andre Johnson is averaging 98.2 yards and 0.4 touchdowns per game. He’s averaging 106.8 yards in his past four games. Johnson faces the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts have allowed 241.5 yards and 1.5 touchdowns per game. He lit them up for 229 yards and three touchdowns in the first meeting.
.
6. Dez Bryant, Dallas Cowboys
Dez Bryant continues to deliver for the Dallas Cowboys. He should eat up the Green Bay Packers. The Pack have allowed 246.8 yards and 1.8 touchdowns per game.
.
7. A.J. Green, Cincinnati Bengals
A.J. Green is averaging 90.4 yards and 0.6 touchdowns per game. He’s facing the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers have allowed 221.8 yards and 1.3 touchdowns per game.
.
8. DeSean Jackson, Philadelphia Eagles
DeSean Jackson is averaging 83.1 yards and 0.6 touchdowns per game. His speed will be too much for the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikes have allowed 282.5 yards and 2.2 touchdowns per game.
.
9. Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh Steelers
Antonio Brown is averaging 95.4 yards and 0.5 touchdowns per game. He has averaged 101.7 yards and 0.8 touchdowns in his past six games. This week he gets the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals have yielded 222.4 yards and 1.5 touchdowns per game.
.
10. Eric Decker, Denver Broncos
Eric Decker has 291 yards and five touchdowns in his past two games. I can’t image
.
11. Keenan Allen, San Diego Chargers
Keenan Allen is averaging 87.2 yards and 0.5 touchdowns in his past 10 games. He should be quite busy against the Denver Broncos. The Broncos have allowed 274.3 yards and 1.8 touchdowns per game.
.
12. Brandon Marshall, Chicago Bears
Brandon Marshall does have to square off with Haden, but he’s such a physical receiver I can’t imagine him not being a WR1 even with the tough matchup.
.
13. Roddy White, Atlanta Falcons
Roddy White is averaging nine catches for 108.5 yards in his past two games as he has finally come around. White should continue to thrive against the Washington Redskins. The Skins have allowed 256.7 yards and 1.9 touchdowns.
.
14. Vincent Jackson, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Vincent Jackson is averaging 79.5 yards and 0.5 touchdowns per game. His tough matchup against the San Francisco 49ers put him in WR2 territory..
.
15. Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona Cardinals
Larry Fitzgerald is up to 10 touchdowns after averaging 70.3 yards with five touchdowns in his past four games. He has a tough draw against the Tennessee Titans.
.
16. Julian Edelman, New England Patriots
Julian Edelman is averaging 91.7 yards and a touchdown in his past three games. He should remain active against the Miami Dolphins with Rob Gronkowski (knee) out.
.
17. Jordy Nelson, Green Bay Packers
Jordy Nelson is averaging 80.5 yards and 0.5 touchdowns. Matt Flynn looked a lot better last week against the Atlanta Falcons with 85 yards going to Jordy. That connection should continue to be potent against the Dallas Cowboys.
.
18. Harry Douglas, Atlanta Falcons
Harry Douglas was quiet last week, but is averaging 71.2 yards on the season and 88.4 yards in his past eight games. He too should have a strong showing against the Redskins.
.
19. Riley Cooper, Philadelphia Eagles
Riley Cooper bounced back from a couple of slow games with 74 yards in the snow against the Detroit Lions. He should keep rolling against the Vikings terrible pass defense.
.
20. Torrey Smith, Baltimore Ravens
Torrey Smith is averaging 74.1 yards per game. He couldn’t get going due to the weather last week despite a great matchup against the Vikings. He had scored three touchdowns in four games prior to that debacle. Look for him to bounce back against the Lions. Detroit has allowed 255.8 yards and 1.7 touchdowns per game.
.
21. Anquan Boldin, San Francisco 49ers
Anquan Boldin is averaging 85.3 yards and 0.8 touchdowns in his past four games. He is facing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs have allowed 238.4 yards and 1.8 touchdowns per game.
.
22. Dwayne Bowe, Kansas City Chiefs
Dwayne Bowe is averaging 58.3 yards and 0.8 touchdowns in his past four games. He faces the Oakland Raiders. The Raiders have yielded 250.5 yards and 1.8 touchdowns per game.
.
23. Victor Cruz, New York Giants
Victor Cruz is averaging 74.8 yards and 0.3 touchdowns per game. He has a tough draw against the Seattle Seahawks.
.
24. Michael Floyd, Arizona Cardinals
Michael Floyd is averaging 105.5 yards and 0.5 touchdowns in his past four games, but he’s dealing with some nagging injuries. He’s a low-end WR2 against the Titans.
.
25. Pierre Garcon, Washington Redskins
Pierre Garcon is averaging 78.2 yards and 0.2 touchdowns per game. He is a good bet to break out against the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons have allowed 245.8 yards and 1.9 touchdowns per game.

    who puts up bigger numbers this week? greg jennings, jarrett boykin or stevie johnson?

  2. LestersLegends
    December 10th, 2013 at 8:31 am #

    I would say Stevie

    I’m coming off 1st round bye and been riding out Terrance Williams/Jarrett Boykin in my WR2 slot most of the year but they have cooled off. Do you think 1 of the Oakland receivers will have a bigger day then Stevie or still go with Stevie here?

  4. LestersLegends
    December 10th, 2013 at 1:47 pm #

    I’d stick with Stevie.

  5. Scottie
    December 11th, 2013 at 7:10 am #

    I’d like to pickup Rod Streater regardless, Would you drop Boykin, T.Williams or Jennings for him?

  6. LestersLegends
    December 11th, 2013 at 7:27 am #

    I’d drop Williams

    How do you feel about playing Clay this weekend over Coop in a ppr league flex spot? Coop vs Min and Clay vs NE

    Thanks!

    No way I’m doing that. MN’s pass defense is terrible.

    have to agree with you esp if Peterson is out which I think will lead to more chances for philly, thanks again!

    Thanks – Now I’m choosing between Stevie, Streater and Eddie Royal for my WR2 spot- Would you roll the dice and start Eddie Royal? Teams that go up against Denver always end up in a shoot out and Keenan Allen is banged up. I think that the strength of my team affords me to be able to take a gamble at WR2. Still go Stevie Johnson?

  11. LestersLegends

    I don’t think any are clear choices over the rest. Going with your gut isn’t a bad option.

    Thanks I’ll let you know what happens!

    So rolling into the playoffs this week (only 4 of 12 make it) I have now have 2 starting receivers with back up QB’s and unfortunately I’m not talking about Marshall or Jeffrey. I’m talking about Jordy Nelson and Pierre Garcon. There is no one left I could consider starting over them but how do you think Pierre Garcon will fair with Cousins now named as the starter? Increase in value, decrease in value, who the fahk knows?

    Thought it would be interesting to hear your thoughts, thanks!

  15. LestersLegends
    December 11th, 2013 at 1:53 pm #

    I think it increases his value.

    I have V-Jax, Ant. Brown, Keenan Allen, Garcon, and Shorts. Which 3 and then 4 WR’s do you play? PPR league

    Thanks

    PPR WR3…Michael Floyd, Michael Crabtree, James Jones or Brian Hartline. Floyd struggled with his ankle and now has a tough Tenn. defense, Crabtree will be matched up with Revis, James Jones has a good matchup with Dallas, but with Flynn you never know and Hartline may be the safest bet against New England…I’m torn whether to play it safe or go for the homerun. Could use some advice.

    I’d sit shorts first and garcon second.
    Frank – I’m sticking with Floyd personally.

    Injury bug hit me and I have to hit free agency for a 2nd receiver. Greg Jennings, Eddie Royal, Ace Sanders or Steve Johnson this week?

  20. LestersLegends
    December 12th, 2013 at 12:29 pm #

    Sucks this time of year, but at least you have some solid options to choose from. I like Stevie personally.

  22. LestersLegends
    December 12th, 2013 at 1:55 pm #

    stacy, bush (if he goes),allen

  23. Jones
    December 13th, 2013 at 7:01 am #

    Spot start for Wes Welker, Ace Sanders, Terrance Williams or Stevie J?

  24. LestersLegends
    December 13th, 2013 at 7:53 am #

    Stevie.

  25. Brandon
    December 13th, 2013 at 3:32 pm #

    Who do you feel more confident about V-Jax vs. 49ers or Garcon with a new QB? PPR league

    Thanks.

  26. LestersLegends
    December 13th, 2013 at 10:06 pm #

    VJax, but being PPR helps Garcon make it real close. If you went that route, not a bad play
