Eric Decker and the Top 15 Second Tier WR Rankings
As the votes keep pouring in regarding which format you guys prefer, it is becoming a unanimous decision that the Top 40 will rein supreme for the remainder of the season.
If you have no idea what I am talking about, hop on over to my WK 3 WR Rankings to find out what the skinny is.
So with that said, please enjoy this one-time construction of the Top 15 Second Tier Receivers. As per all of your votes, the normal WR Rankings will be extended to 40 after this week, which means this piece is an extension of that original rankings piece (the thread was getting too long for the addition).
If there is a piece of advice that counters what I have here, stick to what I told you since each piece of advice is tailored to your specific question and league setup, whereas any RANKINGS piece, is a base-value overview of who’s who.
|26. Eric Decker - DEN||TEN||Concerns over Steve Johnson's injury has forced me to move Decker down to 26 in the rankings, and Nelson up to the 19 spot. Decker will still have a nice day, though.|
|27.Titus Young - DET||MIN||Young should give the Vikings a lot of trouble towards the end of the game.|
|28. A.J.Green - CIN||SF||Kinda hard to ignore the boy after 11 receptions for 165 yards and two TDs in just two games. I just need a bit more to move him up in the rankings.|
|29. Jhonny Knox - CHI||GB||The Packers have some serious issues covering the pass, paving the way for a potentially nice day for Knox owners.|
|30. Julio Jones - ATL||TB||Jones should draw coverage from Ronde Barber while Aqib Talib deals with Roddy White lessening Jones' chances of a big day.|
|31.Denarius Moore - OAK||NYJ||The Raiders get the Jets, nuff said.|
|32. Dwayne Bowe - KC||SD||Bowe's only saving grace this week is the potential for another blowout loss for the Chiefs, which means a lot of garbage-time stats, like last week.|
|33. Arrelious Benn - TB||ATL||Faces a soft Falcons' D, but his time share with Briscoe limits his upside.|
|34. Deion Branch - NE||BUF||Being reduced to only one viable TE should force Brady to target his veteran receiver just a little more this week, Branch is a sneaky start if you're in trouble.|
|35. Robert Meachem - NO||HOU||Meachem competes for targets, and faces the number one ranked defense in the league (Houston). Not a good matchup.|
|36. Jordy Nelson - GB||CHI||Look for the Packers to feature TE Jermichael Finley and Greg Jennings more than the other receiving options, as they have historically been Bear killers in the past.|
|37. Jerome Simpson - CIN||SF||---|
|OAK||WR 4 value only.|
|39. Devin Hester - CHI||GB||Kind the odd-man out here, even against Green Bay.|
|40. Preston Parker - TB||ATL||A nice interim waiver wire grab as Sammy Stroughter nurses his injured foot.|
