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.

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.

Jordy Nelson (10 catches, 161 yards) welcomed Aaron Rodgers back in a big way. He had seven catches for 130 yards and a touchdown in the opener.
.

Anquan Boldin averaged 73.7 yards and 0.4 touchdowns this year, but averaged 86.4 yards and 0.7 touchdowns in his final seven games. Boldin caught 13 passes for 208 yards and a touchdown in the first meeting with the Green Bay Packers.
.

Rodgers wasn’t the only Packer to make a triumphant return. Randall Cobb came back to catch a pair of touchdown passes last week against the Chicago Bears. He had seven catches for 108 yards and a touchdown in the first meeting with the Niners.
.
7. Marques Colston, New Orleans Saints
Marques Colston closed out the season averaging 86.8 yards and 0.8 touchdowns in his final four games. He should have continued success against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles allowed 289.8 yards and 1.6 touchdowns per game.
.
8. T.Y. Hilton, Indianapolis Colts
T.Y. Hilton finished strong averaging 95 yards in his last three games. He only scored five touchdowns on the year and those came in two games. He has a tough matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs.
.
9. Michael Crabtree, San Francisco 49ers
Michael Crabtree averaged 56.8 yards per game. He’s not all the way back, but he’s close. He should have a solid game against Green Bay.
.
10. Marvin Jones, Cincinnati Bengals
Marvin Jones burst on the scene with a four-touchdown game, but he finished with 10 scores. He averaged 63.5 yards and 0.8 touchdowns in his last four games.

Dez Bryant is averaging 75.6 yards and 0.8 touchdowns per game. He has scored a touchdown in four straight games. Dez should finish strong against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles have allowed 285.2 passing yards and 1.5 touchdowns per game. Dez had 110 yards in the first meeting.

.
4. Demaryius Thomas, Denver Broncos
Demaryius Thomas is averaging 87.8 yards and 0.8 touchdowns per game. He should see plenty of looks as Peyton Manning attempts to set the single-season passing yards record against the Oakland Raiders. The Raiders have yielded 250.5 yards and 1.9 touchdowns per game. Thomas caught 10 balls for 94 yards in the first meeting.
.
5. Eric Decker, Denver Broncos

Julian Edelman is averaging 98.2 yards and 0.8 touchdowns in the past five games. He should have a strong finale against the Buffalo Bills. The Bills have allowed 1.8 touchdowns per game. Edelman had 79 yards and two touchdowns in the first meeting.
.
13. Andre Johnson, Houston Texans
Andre Johnson is averaging 90.5 yards and 0.3 touchdowns per game. He had eight catches for 76 yards in the first meeting with the Tennessee Titans. If he can manage 142 yards Johnson will have his fourth season with 1,500 yards.
.
14. Calvin Johnson, Detroit Lions
Calvin Johnson is dealing with knee and ankle injuries that have held him to a 64.3 yard average in his past three games without a score. He’d occupy the top spot against the Minnesota Vikings if he were healthy. The Vikes have allowed 294.4 yards and 2.4 touchdowns per game. Megatron is as likely to get 40 yards as he is to get 140 yards. He’s very unpredictable this week.
.
15. Vincent Jackson, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Vincent Jackson is averaging 79.3 yards and 0.5 touchdowns per game. He had 77 yards in the first meeting against the New Orleans Saints.
.
16. Marques Colston, New Orleans Saints

.
2. Josh Gordon, Cleveland Browns
Josh Gordon is averaging 122.3 yards and 0.8 touchdowns per game. He’s been molten hot the past five games averaging 168.2 yards and 1.2 touchdowns. The New York Jets will try to contain him. The Jets are allowing 255.4 yards and 1.8 touchdowns per game.

.
6. Dez Bryant, Dallas Cowboys

.
7. Demaryius Thomas, Denver Broncos
Demaryius Thomas is averaging 85.3 yards and 0.8 touchdowns. He had just 45 yards last week against the San Diego Chargers, but I expect him to rebound.

8. Andre Johnson, Houston Texans
Andre Johnson is averaging 92.5 yards and 0.4 touchdowns per game. He should have a strong showing against the Denver Broncos. The Broncos have allowed 266.1 yards and 1.9 touchdowns per game.

.
14. Vincent Jackson, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

.

Jordy Nelson is averaging 79.1 yards and 0.6 touchdowns per game. He takes on the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers have allowed 1.4 touchdown passes per game.

.
21. Michael Crabtree, San Francisco 49ers
Michael Crabtree is averaging 51 yards since his return. He scored his first touchdown last week. He’s also a solid play against the Falcons.
.
22. Danny Amendola, New England Patriots
Danny Amendola scored a touchdown in Week 14 and caught 10 passes for 131 yards last week. Look for another strong fantasy football playoffs performance against the Ravens.
.

Roddy White is averaging 7.7 receptions for 90 yards in his past three games. He faces the San Francisco 49ers.
.
24. Kendall Wright, Tennessee Titans

.
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.

.

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

.
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.

.
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.
