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.

Most fantasy leagues have wrapped up already, but there are some that still play to the bitter end. For those leagues, I present the Lester’s Legends 2013 Week 17 fantasy football wide receiver rankings.
.
1. Dez Bryant, Dallas Cowboys
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.
.

Josh Gordon is averaging 120.3 yards and 0.7 touchdowns. The last time he played the Pittsburgh Steelers he had 14 catches for 237 yards and a touchdown.
.

.
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
Eric Decker is averaging 116 yards and 1.8 touchdowns in his past four games. He’s thriving with Wes Welker (concussion) out of the mix. Decker caught eight passes for 133 yards and a score in the first game against the Raiders.
.
6. DeSean Jackson, Philadelphia Eagles

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.
.

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

.
20. Danny Amendola, New England Patriots
Danny Amendola caught 10 passes for 104 yards in the first meeting with the Bills. He should close the season on a high note.

.
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
Dez Bryant is averaging 75.8 yards and 0.8 touchdowns per game. I don’t expect him to leave the field early against the Washington Redskins. The Skins have allowed 251.9 yards and 1.9 touchdowns per game.
.
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.

.
13. Julian Edelman, New England Patriots
Julian Edelman is averaging 103.5 yards and a touchdown in his past four games. Tom Brady will lean on him heavily against the Baltimore Ravens.
.
14. Vincent Jackson, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Vincent Jackson is averaging 77.9 yards and 0.5 touchdowns per game. He’ll look to score a touchdown for a third straight game when he faces the St. Louis Rams. The Rams have allowed 257.5 yards and 1.4 touchdowns per game.
.
15. Jordy Nelson, Green Bay Packers
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.
.
16. Eric Decker, Denver Broncos
Eric Decker is averaging 80.7 yards and 0.6 touchdowns per game. He was held to 42 yards against the Chargers. He should also bounce back against the Texans. Houston has allowed 1.8 passing touchdowns per game.
.
17. Torrey Smith, Baltimore Ravens
Torrey Smith is averaging 73.7 yards and 0.3 touchdowns per game. In three career games (including playoffs) against the New England Patriots Smith is averaging 92.7 yards and a score.

.
20. Anquan Boldin, San Francisco 49ers
Anquan Boldin is averaging 76.8 total yards and 0.6 touchdowns in his past five games. The success should continue against the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons have allowed 254.9 yards and two touchdowns 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.
.
23. Roddy White, Atlanta Falcons
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

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.

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.

.
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.

Demaryius Thomas is averaging 88.4 yards and 0.8 touchdowns. He has 100 yards and/or a score in his past six games. Thomas squares off with the Tennessee Titans. They have played the pass well, but they haven’t faced the likes of Peyton Manning and company.
.
6. Andre Johnson, Houston Texans
Andre Johnson is averaging 93.6 yards and 0.4 touchdowns per game. He had a quiet day in the first meeting with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Look for a different story this week. The Jags have allowed 250.7 yards and 1.9 touchdowns per game.
.
7. Dez Bryant, Dallas Cowboys
Dez Bryant is averaging 74.7 yard and 0.8 touchdowns per game. He’ll have some extra rest before facing the Bears. He should be locked and loaded.
.
8. A.J. Green, Cincinnati Bengals
A.J. Green is averaging 91.9 yards and 0.6 touchdowns per game. He should turn in a nice game against the Indianapolis Colts.
.
9. Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona Cardinals
Larry Fitzgerald has nine touchdowns on the year and four in his past three games. He should continue to roll against the St. Louis Rams. Fitz had 80 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the first meeting with the Rams.
.
10. DeSean Jackson, Philadelphia Eagles
DeSean Jackson is averaging 85.1 yards and 0.6 touchdowns per game. Last week Nick Foles leaned on his tight ends for three scores. I think Jackson will see more looks against the Detroit Lions. The Lions have allowed 262.3 yards and 1.8 touchdowns per game.
.
11. Vincent Jackson, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Vincent Jackson is averaging 80.3 yards and 0.4 touchdowns per game. He should have a huge game against the Buffalo Bills. The Bills have allowed 1.9 touchdowns per game.
.
12. Torrey Smith, Baltimore Ravens
Torrey Smith is averaging 79.3 yard per game and has scored in three of the past four weeks. He should dominate the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikes yield 287 yards and 2.2 touchdowns per game.
.
13. Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh Steelers
Antonio Brown is averaging 91.9 yards and 0.5 touchdowns per game. He’s facing the Miami Dolphins at home where he’s averaging 113.6 yards and 0.8 touchdowns.
.
14. Eric Decker, Denver Broncos
Eric Decker is averaging 80.9 yards and 0.6 touchdowns. He certainly had Peyton’s attention last week when he scored four times against the Kansas City Chiefs.
.
15. Michael Floyd, Arizona Cardinals
Michael Floyd is averaging 132 yards in his past three games. He should also turn in a nice game against the Rams. Floyd had 82 yards in the first meeting.
.
16. Keenan Allen, San Diego Chargers
Keenan Allen is averaging 90.3 yards in his past games. He is facing the New York Giants. The G-Men have allowed 230.8 yards and 1.4 touchdowns per game.
.
17. Victor Cruz, New York Giants
Victor Cruz is averaging 77.6 yards. He hasn’t scored in forever, but he’s due. Perhaps it’s this week against the San Diego Chargers. The Bolts have allowed 268.8 yards and 1.6 touchdowns per game.
.
18. Pierre Garcon, Washington Redskins
Pierre Garcon is averaging 81.7 yards per game. He has received double-digit targets in his past six games. He’s a solid play against the slumping Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs have allowed 1,118 yards and nine touchdowns in their past three games.
.
19. Dwayne Bowe, Kansas City Chiefs
Dwayne Bowe is averaging 57.8 yards and 0.5 touchdowns in his past four games. He should have a solid game against the Washington Redskins. The Skins have allowed 265.3 yards and 1.9 touchdowns per game.
.
20. Roddy White, Atlanta Falcons
Roddy White finally broke out with 10 catches for 143 yards against the Buffalo Bills. His turnaround should continue against the Green Bay Packers. The Pack have allowed 250.5 yards and 1.8 touchdowns per game
.
21. Harry Douglas, Atlanta Falcons
Harry Douglas is averaging 98.1 yards in his past seven games. He should also turn in a nice performance against the Packers.
.
22. Kendall Wright, Tennessee Titans
Kendall Wright is averaging 77.5 yards in his past 10 games. He should be quite busy against the Denver Broncos as the Tennessee Titans will likely be playing from behind. The Broncos have allowed 284 yards and 1.9 touchdowns per game.
.
23. Wes Welker, Denver Broncos
Wes Welker has been held under 40 yards in three of the past four games. I wouldn’t be surprised if Peyton made an effort to get him the ball so the offense is firing on all cylinders.
.
24. Mike Wallace, Miami Dolphins
Mike Wallace is averaging 104.5 yards and a touchdown in his past two games. He faces the Pittsburgh Steelers.
.
25. Riley Cooper, Philadelphia Eagles
Riley Cooper has been quiet the past couple of weeks, but he has Nick Foles’ full confidence. I’m expecting a solid game against the Lions.

Alshon Jeffrey is averaging 105.1 total yards and 0.4 touchdowns in his past eight games. He should also have his way with the Vikings secondary.
