Here’s my Week 17 wide receiver rankings for the leagues that play the full season out.


1. Brandon Marshall @ New England
2. Calvin Johnson vs. Minnesota
3. Roddy White vs. Carolina
4. Greg Jennings vs. Chicago
5. Dwayne Bowe vs. Oakland
6. Vincent Jackson @ Denver
7.  Miles Austin @ Philadelphia
8. Reggie Wayne vs. Tennessee
9. Jeremy Maclin vs. Dallas
10. Kenny Britt @ Indianapolis
11. Mike Wallace vs. Cleveland
12. Brandon Lloyd vs. San Diego
13. Mike Williams (TB) @ New Orleans
14. Mario Manningham @ Washington
15. Santonio Holmes vs. Buffalo
16. Santana Moss vs. New York Giants
17. Pierre Garcon vs. Tennessee
18. Anquan Boldin vs. Cincinnati
19. Robert Meachem vs. Tampa Bay
20. Jacoby Jones vs. Jacksonville
21. Mike Thomas @ Houston
22. Larry Fitzgerald @ San Francisco
23. Percy Harvin @ Detroit
24. Braylon Edwards vs. Buffalo
25. Michael Crabtree vs. Arizona
26. Big Mike Williams (SEA) vs. St. Louis
27. Hines Ward @ Cleveland
28. Davone Bess vs. New England
29. DeSean Jackson vs. Dallas
30. Jerome Simpson @ Baltimore
31. Stevie Johnson @ New York Jets
32. Sidney Rice @ Detroit
33. Derrick Mason vs. Cincinnati
34. Johnny Knox @ Green Bay
35. Josh Morgan vs. Arizona
36. Jacoby Ford @ Kansas City
37. Kevin Walter vs. Jacksonville
38. Derek Hagan @ Washington
39. Lance Moore vs. Tampa Bay
40. Andre Caldwell @ Baltimore

Inside the numbers:

  • I guess I got carried away with Vincent Jackson’s ranking last week. He should be a solid WR1 this week though.
  • Greg Jennings scored in his first meeting with Chicago, but has been a beast in his past ten games averaging 98.5 yards with nine touchdowns.
  • Andre Johnson appears to be done for the year. You’ll have to look elsewhere. Jacoby Jones and Kevin Walter should step up.
  • I wouldn’t be surprised if Ochocinco sat out again. Jerome Simpson and Andre Caldwell are decent plays despite a tough matchup.
  • With everything wrapped up, I can’t trust Deion Branch or Wes Welker.
  • ***Update *** Philly can’t improve their playoff positioning, which makes me worried about DeSean Jackson’s usage.
  • ***Update***  With Hakeem Nicks out, Derek Hagan returns to the rankings.
  • ***Update*** Marques Colston had his knee scoped. Robert Meachem should be the main benefactor.
