Megatron
.
The smell of football is in the air. Here are the Lester’s Legends 2014 Week 1 fantasy football wide receiver rankings.
.
1. Calvin Johnson, Detroit Lions
Megatron has averaged 1,712.3 yards and 11 touchdowns over the past three seasons. He should have his way with the New York Giants’ secondary.
.
2. Demaryius Thomas, Denver Broncos
Thomas has averaged 1,432 yards and 12 touchdowns over the past two seasons shagging balls from Peyton Manning. He starts his quest for a third straight monster season against the Indianapolis Colts. Thomas had 82 yards and a score against them last year.
.
3. Julio Jones, Atlanta Falcons
Jones was averaging 116 yards per game before a foot injury derailed his 2013 season. He averaged 1,078.5 yards and nine touchdowns in his first two seasons. He had 76 yards and a touchdown in last year’s meeting with the New Orleans Saints.
.
4. A.J. Green, Cincinnati Bengals
Green has averaged 1,277.7 yards and 9.7 touchdowns the past two years and 1,388 yards and 11 scores over the past two seasons. He faces the rival Baltimore Ravens.
.
5. Brandon Marshall, Chicago Bears
Marshall finished with 100 receptions for 1,295 yards and 12 touchdowns. Nine of his touchdowns were thrown by Jay Cutler as they continue to have a great rapport. That trend should continue against the Buffalo Bills.
.
6. Dez Bryant, Dallas Cowboys
Dez has averaged 1,307.5 yards and 12.5 touchdowns over the past two seasons. Dallas will be forced to throw often by the San Francisco 49ers, which should lead to a big day for Dez.
.
7. Alshon Jeffery, Chicago Bears
Jeffery had 1,421 yards and seven touchdowns last year. Cutler should have no problem getting Jeffery heavily involved as well.
.
8. Vincent Jackson, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
V-Jax has averaged 1,304 yards and 7.5 touchdowns the past two seasons with the Bucs. He seemingly gets an upgrade at the quarterback position with Josh McCown. V-Jax averaged 77 yards in two games against the Carolina Panthers last year.
.
9.  Michael Crabtree, San Francisco 49ers
Crabtree clicked with Colin Kaepernick in 2012 before basically losing a season with an Achilles injury. He should get off to a fast start against the Cowboys. The Boys allowed 286.8 yards and 2.1 touchdowns through the air last year.
.
10. Randall Cobb, Green Bay Packers
Cobb was limited to six games last year, but managed 433 yards and four touchdowns. I anticipate Jordy Nelson having to deal with Richard Sherman, which should make Cobb the more productive option.
.
11. Victor Cruz, New York Giants
Cruz had a down year like the rest of the Giants, but moving to the slot should mean a heavy volume of targets. We know what Cruz can do when he gets the ball in his hands. Look for a nice start against the Lions.
.
12. Andre Johnson, Houston Texans
Johnson has averaged 1,502.5 yards the past two seasons despite questionable quarterback play. Unfortunately that trend should continue with Ryan Fitzpatrick, but Johnson remains a WR1 option against the Washington Redskins.
.
13. Pierre Garcon, Washington Redskins
Garcon was banged up in 2012. Robert Griffin III wasn’t himself last year, but Garcon finished with 113 catches for 1,346 yards.
.
14. Jordy Nelson, Green Bay Packers
Nelson rebounded with 1,314 yards and eight touchdowns despite Aaron Rodgers playing in just nine games. Facing the Seahawks makes Nelson a borderline WR1.
.
15. Michael Floyd, Arizona Cardinals
Floyd had 1,054 yards and five touchdowns last year for the Cardinals. Look for Floyd to establish himself as Arizona’s primary option against the San Diego Chargers.
.
16. Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh Steelers
Brown had an impressive 2013 showing with 1,499 yards and eight touchdowns. I’m a little skeptical because he’ll be locking horns with Joe Haden.
.
17. Keenan Allen, San Diego Chargers
Allen had an impressive rookie season with 1,046 yards and eight touchdowns. In his final 13 games, he averaged 78.2 yards and 0.6 touchdowns. He’ll have to contend with Patrick Peterson.
.
18. Cordarrelle Patterson, Minnesota Vikings
Patterson was treated with kid gloves last year, but finished with 469 receiving yards, 158 rushing yards, and nine touchdowns (four receiving, three rushing, two returns). He should do well in Norv Turner’s offense. He faces the St. Louis Rams in the opener.
.
19. T.Y. Hilton, Indianapolis Colts
Hilton finished with 1,083 yards and five touchdowns in his second season. Look for plenty of action against the Broncos.
.
20. Reggie Wayne, Indianapolis Colts
Wayne is going to be heavily involved as well.
.
The Next Batch
21. Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona Cardinals vs. San Diego Chargers
22. Roddy White, Atlanta Falcons vs. New Orleans Saints
23. Percy Harvin, Seattle Seahawks vs. Green Bay Packers
24. Torrey Smith, Baltimore Ravens vs. Cincinnati Bengals
25. Kendall Wright, Tennessee Titans @ Kansas City Chiefs
26. DeSean Jackson, Washington Redskins @ Houston Texans
27. Eric Decker, New York Jets vs. Oakland Raiders
28. Jeremy Maclin, Philadelphia Eagles vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
29. Mike Wallace, Miami Dolphins vs. New England Patriots
30. Emmanuel Sanders, Denver Broncos vs. Indianapolis Colts
31. Julian Edelman, New England Patriots vs. Miami Dolphins
32. Marques Colston, New Orleans Saints @ Atlanta Falcons
33. Golden Tate, Detroit Lions vs. New York Giants
34. Terrance Williams, Dallas Cowboys vs. San Francisco 49ers
35. Brandin Cooks, New Orleans Saints @ Atlanta Falcons

Megatron
.
Here is a revised and expanded look at the 2014 Lester’s Legends wide receiver rankings.
.
1. Calvin Johnson, Detroit Lions
Megatron has averaged 1,712.3 yards and 11 touchdowns over the past three seasons. With his size, speed, hands and route-running ability, Johnson simply is the best receiver out there.
.
2. Demaryius Thomas, Denver Broncos
Thomas has averaged 1,432 yards and 12 touchdowns over the past two seasons shagging balls from Peyton Manning. With Eric Decker moving on to the New York Jets, Thomas should be an even more vital option in the passing game.
.
3. Dez Bryant, Dallas Cowboys
Dez has averaged 1,307.5 yards and 12.5 touchdowns over the past two seasons. He has the talent to be as good as any receiver in the league. In fact, after Megatron the top seven choices are pretty interchangeable.
.
4. A.J. Green, Cincinnati Bengals
Green has averaged 1,277.7 yards and 9.7 touchdowns the past two years and 1,388 yards and 11 scores over the past two seasons. Green has bulked up a bit to improve his physicality. Entering his fourth season, look for Green to continue to be one of the elite fantasy options at wide receiver.
.
5. Julio Jones, Atlanta Falcons
Jones was averaging 116 yards per game before a foot injury derailed his 2013 season. He averaged 1,078.5 yards and nine touchdowns in his first two seasons. Continue to monitor his recovery. If there aren’t any setbacks, Jones should be a solid WR1 option once again.
.
6. Brandon Marshall, Chicago Bears
Marshall finished with 100 receptions for 1,295 yards and 12 touchdowns. He took a step back from the 118 catches for 1,508 yards and 11 touchdowns thanks to the emergence of Alshon Jeffery. Nine of his touchdowns were thrown by Jay Cutler as they continue to have a great rapport. That trend should continue.
.
7. Alshon Jeffery, Chicago Bears
Jeffery had 1,421 yards and seven touchdowns last year. He did a lot of his damage with Josh McCown, but Cutler is more than capable of getting him the ball.
.
8. Jordy Nelson, Green Bay Packers
Nelson rebounded with 1,314 yards and eight touchdowns despite Aaron Rodgers playing in just nine games. Look for Jordy to light it up with a healthy Rodgers.
.
9. Vincent Jackson, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
V-Jax has averaged 1,304 yards and 7.5 touchdowns the past two seasons with the Bucs. Josh McCown made good use of big receivers Marshall and Jeffery last year. V-Jax should be a force once again.
.
10. Pierre Garcon, Washington Redskins
Garcon was banged up in 2012. Robert Griffin III wasn’t himself last year, but Garcon finished with 113 catches for 1,346 yards. With both of them healthy and DeSean Jackson on board to take away some of the defensive attention, Garcon should have another strong season.
.
11. Keenan Allen, San Diego Chargers
Allen had an impressive rookie season with 1,046 yards and eight touchdowns. In his final 13 games, he averaged 78.2 yards and 0.6 touchdowns. Year two should be even more impressive.
.
12. Victor Cruz, New York Giants
Cruz has had his production dip the past two seasons after recording 1,536 yards and nine touchdowns in 2011, 1,092 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2012 and 998 yards and  four touchdowns last year. Moving to the slot should mean a heavy volume of targets. We know what Cruz can do when he gets the ball in his hands.
.
13. Andre Johnson, Houston Texans
Johnson has averaged 1,502.5 yards the past two seasons despite questionable quarterback play. He did manage just nine touchdowns combined over the two years. Will quarterback play be an issue again? If it is, will it catch up with Johnson? Those are the questions that keep him just outside of WR1 territory.
.
14. Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh Steelers
Brown had an impressive 2013 showing with 1,499 yards and eight touchdowns. He should continue to see a heavy volume of looks from Ben Roethlisberger.
.
15. Randall Cobb, Green Bay Packers
Cobb was limited to six games last year, but managed 433 yards and four touchdowns. He added 78 rushing yards. He’s a dynamic playmaker if he can stay healthy.
.
16.  Michael Crabtree, San Francisco 49ers
Crabtree clicked with Colin Kaepernick in 2012 before basically losing a season with an Achilles injury. Now recovered, look for big things from Crabtree. He could easily provide WR1 numbers.
.
17. Michael Floyd, Arizona Cardinals
Floyd had 1,054 yards and five touchdowns last year for the Cardinals. He had more yards than Larry Fitzgerald, but had half the touchdowns. In his third season look for Floyd to take over as the top option in Arizona.
.
18. Wes Welker, Denver Broncos
Welker finished with just 778 yards last year, but managed to score a career-high 10 touchdowns. I expect his yards to increase, but could see his number of scores dip.
.
19. Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona Cardinals
Fitz had another down year in respect to his 954 receiving yards. He did manage to score 10 touchdowns. Fitz still has plenty left in the tank. He’s probably a little riskier than the other top 20, but he has a track record of greatness.
.
20. Cordarrelle Patterson, Minnesota Vikings
Patterson was treated with kid gloves last year, but finished with 469 receiving yards, 158 rushing yards, and nine touchdowns (four receiving, three rushing, two returns). He’s clearly the top choice in the passing game and should thrive in Norv Turner’s system.
.
21.  Roddy White, Atlanta Falcons
White had a down year like most Falcons, but you know his track record. White has been one of the most consistent receivers of the past seven years.
.
22. Percy Harvin, Seattle Seahawks
Harvin is a risky option given his recent injury history, lack of a 1,000-yard receiving season and Seattle’s run-heavy offense. That said, Harvin is a dynamic player that can produce in the passing, running and return game.
.
23.  Torrey Smith, Baltimore Ravens
Smith recorded 1,128 yards last year, but only managed to score four touchdowns. He had 15 scores in his first two years, so that should be seen as a fluke. Smith is a solid WR2, but is a little inconsistent.
.
24.  T.Y. Hilton, Indianapolis Colts
Hilton finished with 1,083 yards and five touchdowns in his second season. Look for another step forward in year three.
.
25.  DeSean Jackson, Washington Redskins
Jackson blew up in Chip Kelly’s system last year to the tune of 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns.He is a regression risk, but should remain productive in Jay Gruden’s offense. He’s a solid WR3.

Sammy Watkins
.
Now that the NFL draft is behind us it is time for fantasy football nuts to start breaking down the rookies. Here’s the LestersLegends’ look at the 2014 NFL rookie wide receiver class. It should come as no surprise given the evolution of the game, but this position has the deepest crop of fantasy newcomers.
.
1.  Sammy Watkins, Buffalo Bills
Watkins gives Buffalo an explosive weapon the passing game. He’s 6’1″ and 205 pounds with 4.43 speed. Last year at Clemson he caught 101 passes for 1,464 yards and 12 touchdowns. With C.J. Spiller and Watkins on the field at the same time the Bills will have some firepower on offense.
.
2. Mike Evans, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Evans at 6’5′ pairs with the 6’5″ Vincent Jackson to give the Bucs a pair of huge wide receivers. That recipe worked well for Josh McCown last year in Chicago (Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery). Evans had 1,105 yards in 2012 and 1,394 yards and 12 touchdowns last year. Evans should be a nice red zone threat out of the gate.
.
3. Jordan Matthews, Philadelphia Eagles
Matthews may have been the seventh receiver to come off the board, but Jerry Rice’s cousin landed in a good spot with Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia Eagles. He will work the slot and use his 4.46 speed to get separation. Matthews caught 206 passes over the past two seasons for 2,800 yards and 15 touchdowns. There will be plenty of targets up for grabs following the departure of DeSean Jackson and Jason Avant.
.
4. Brandin Cooks, New Orleans Saints
Cooks gets a chance to catch passes from Drew Brees, which fuels the excitement. Marques Colston isn’t the same player he used to be. Cooks could step in and shine. He caught 128 passes for 1,730 yards and 16 touchdowns last year at Oregon State. He could see plenty of time in the slot and get some of the looks reserved for Darren Sproles the past few years.
.
5. Odell Beckham Jr., New York Giants
Beckham Jr. was the 12 overall pick by the Giants as they looked to get Eli Manning more firepower after a down year. With 4.43 speed Beckham Jr. brings explosiveness to the table. He should be a nice complement to Victor Cruz. Beckham Jr. caught 59 passes last year for 1,152 yards and eight touchdowns.

.
9. Vincent Jackson, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
V-Jax has averaged 1,304 yards and 7.5 touchdowns the past two seasons with the Bucs. Josh McCown made good use of big receivers Marshall and Jeffery last year. V-Jax should be a force once again.

.
12. Andre Johnson, Houston Texans

Will the quarterback play be an issue again? If it is, will it catch up with Johnson. Those are the questions that keeps him just outside of WR1 territory.

Fitz had another down year in respect to his 954 receiving yards. He did manage to score 10 touchdowns. Fitz still has plenty left in the tank. He’s probably a little riskier that the other top 15, but he has a track record of greatness.
.
15. Randall Cobb, Green Bay Packers

Demaryius Thomas stiff arm
.
Here’s a look at the LestersLegends Super Bowl XLVIII fantasy football wide receiver rankings.
.
1. Demaryius Thomas, Denver Broncos
Demaryius Thomas averaged 89.4 yards and 0.9 touchdowns during the regular season. He has 15 receptions for 188 yards and a pair of touchdowns in two playoff wins over the San Diego Chargers and the New England Patriots. He will have his work cut out for him against Richard Sherman and the Seattle Seahawks secondary. At 6’3″ and 229 pounds with speed and athleticism to burn, he should be able to hold his own against their physical secondary.
.
2. Eric Decker, Denver Broncos
Eric Decker averaged 98.2 yards and 1.6 touchdowns in the last five games of the regular season, but has taken a little bit of back seat in the playoffs averaging 52.5 yards. Decker is 6’3″ and 214 pounds with deceptive speed. If Sherman is holding down Thomas, Peyton Manning won’t hesitate to go to Decker.
.
3. Wes Welker, Denver Broncos
Wes Welker is averaging five catches for 38 yards. Like I said before the conference championship, if he doesn’t score a touchdown you are in for a mediocre performance. His role doesn’t afford big yardage days.
.
4. Percy Harvin, Seattle Seahawks
Percy Harvin is closing out a lost season due to injuries. The talent is there. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him finally make his big splash in the biggest game of the year. Harvin is explosive after the catch. Look for Seattle to be creative in his usage.
.
5. Doug Baldwin, Seattle Seahawks
Doug Baldwin had 106 yards against the San Francisco 49ers. He is inconsistent, but is still capable of making plays, particularly if Denver keys in on Harvin and Marshawn Lynch.
.
6. Golden Tate, Seattle Seahawks
Golden Tate, like the rest of Seattle’s options are inconsistent. He led all Seahawk receivers with 898 yards, but he’s a roll of the dice.
.
7. Jermaine Kearse, Seattle Seahawks
Jermaine Kearse gives the Seahawks a little more size than his counterparts. Again, you are hoping for the best if you are using Kearse.
.
8.Andre Caldwell, Denver Broncos
Andre Caldwell had one catch in each of Denver’s two playoff games. If Welker were to get banged up, he could see extra looks. It’s not a bet you should take though.

Demaryius Thomas stiff arm
.
Here are the Lester’s Legends wide receiver rankings for the  the AFC & NFC Conference Championship Games of the 2013-14 NFL Playoffs.
.
1. Demaryius Thomas, Denver Broncos
Demaryius Thomas averaged 89.4 yards and 0.9 touchdowns during the regular season, including 41 yards and a score in the first meeting with the New England Patriots. He had 54 yards and a score in the playoff win over the San Diego Chargers. Thomas has a touchdown in three of four playoff games. He’ll be a difficult cover, even for Aqib Talib.
.
2. Eric Decker, Denver Broncos
Eric Decker had just 32 yards against the Chargers, but averaged 98.2 yards and 1.6 touchdowns in the last five games of the regular season. He only had five yards in the first meeting with the Pats, but I expect a much heavier workload in this one.
.
3. Julian Edelman, New England Patriots
Julian Edelman averaged 92.7 yards and 0.7 touchdowns in the last six games of the regular season. He remained hot in the playoffs with 84 yards against the Indianapolis Colts. Edelman caught nine balls for 110 yards and a pair of scores against the Broncos. He’ll be a difficult cover once again.
.
4. Anquan Boldin, San Francisco 49ers
Anquan Boldin and Michael Crabtree have alternated being Colin Kaepernick’s favorite target in the two playoff games. Boldin had eight catches for 136 yards against the Carolina Panthers. I expect Kaepernick to lean on Boldin again due to his physical style.
.
5. Michael Crabtree, San Francisco 49ers
Michael Crabtree had 125 yards against the Green Bay Packers in the wild card round and 26 yards against the Panthers. I expect he’ll have closer to the latter against the Seahawks.
.
6. Wes Welker, Denver Broncos
Wes Welker returned with 38 yards and a touchdown. He was held to 31 yards in the first meeting with New England. He’s a bit risky because he only topped 70 yards five times this year, with the last one coming on November 17th. If he doesn’t score you could be stuck with a mediocre day.
.
7. Danny Amendola, New England Patriots
Danny Amendola wasn’t great during the regular season but he showed up big in the playoffs with 77 yards against the Colts. He had just 17 yards against the Broncos, but I expect he’ll have a bigger thumbprint on this one.
.

Demaryius Thomas stiff arm
.
Here are the Lester’s Legends wide receiver rankings for the divisional round of the NFL Playoffs.
.
1. Demaryius Thomas, Denver Broncos
Demaryius Thomas averaged 89.4 yards and 0.9 touchdowns during the regular season, including 76.5 yards and 1.5 touchdowns in two games against the San Diego Chargers. Thomas’ physical tools will be a challenge.
.
2. Eric Decker, Denver Broncos
Eric Decker averaged 98.2 yards and 1.6 touchdowns in the last five games. He should remain hot against a Chargers team that ranked 29th against the pass with 258.7 yards allowed per game.
.
3. Julian Edelman, New England Patriots
Julian Edelman averaged 92.7 yards and 0.7 touchdowns in the last six games. Tom Brady’s new favorite target will be busy against the Indianapolis Colts
.
4. T.Y. Hilton, Indianapolis Colts
T.Y. Hilton averaged 67.7 yard and 0.3 yards during the regular season, but he erupted for 155 yards in the season finale and 224 yards and a pair of scores in the dramatic playoff win over the Kansas City Chiefs. My only concern is Bill Belichick’s history of neutralizing the opposition’s primary weapon.
.
5. Michael Crabtree, San Francisco 49ers
Michael Crabtree exploded last week with 125 yards in a playoff win over the Green Bay Packers. In the past four playoff games he’s averaging 102.5 yards and 0.8 touchdowns. Crabtree does have a tough matchup against the Carolina Panthers.
.
6. Keenan Allen, San Diego Chargers
Keenan Allen averaged 69.7 yard and 0.5 touchdowns this year. He only managed 70 yards in two games against the Broncos, but he scored a pair of touchdowns.
.
7. Wes Welker, Denver Broncos
Wes Welker is a bit of a wildcard as a pair of concussions cost him the final three games of the season. Not before he set a career-high with 10 touchdown receptions. As long as he can avoid a setback, he’s a decent option as he’s nearly an impossible cover out of the slot.
.
8. Anquan Boldin, San Francisco 49ers
Anquan Boldin averaged 73.7 yards and 0.4 touchdowns during the year. In the final seven games he averaged 86.4 yards and 0.7 touchdowns. He was quiet last week against the Packers, but he is more than capable of turning in a big performance. His physical style is suited for the matchup with the Panthers.
.
9. Danny Amendola, New England Patriots
Danny Amendola had a few big games in a disappointing season. He’s equally capable of a big day, getting hurt or being nearly invisible. He’s a roll of the dice, but there is some upside.
.
10. Marques Colston, New Orleans Saints
Marques Colston had just two catches for 16 yards last week against the Philadelphia Eagles. He had four catches for 27 yards in the first meeting with the Seattle Seahawks. He’s capable of so much more, but his matchup is tough.
