Wide Receivers

    1. 1
    2. Calvin Johnson
    3. Calvin
      Johnson
      WR
    4. REC YDS128
    5. REC TD2

    For your sake, I hope you aren't playing the owner who has Johnson this week. The Eagles allow the most fantasy points per game to receivers.

    1. 2
    2. A.J. Green
    3. A.J.
      Green
      WR
    4. REC YDS114
    5. REC TD2

    The Colts allow the eighth-most fantasy points per game to receivers. I wouldn't want to be playing against Green this week.

    1. 3
    2. Demaryius Thomas
    3. Demaryius
      Thomas
      WR
    4. REC YDS111
    5. REC TD2

    Peyton Manning has a way of evening things out, but Thomas is likely to see a ton of Alterraun Verner on Sunday.

    1. 4
    2. Andre Johnson
    3. Andre
      Johnson
      WR
    4. REC YDS122
    5. REC TD1

    Johnson had another big game last week, catching eight passes for 121 yards. The Jags held him to two cathes for 36 yards in the earlier meeting. I don't see that repeating.

    1. 5
    2. Brandon Marshall
    3. Brandon
      Marshall
      WR
    4. REC YDS122
    5. REC TD1

    Dallas allows the most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks, and that's great news for Marshall.

    1. 6
    2. Josh Gordon
    3. Josh
      Gordon
      WR
    4. REC YDS121
    5. REC TD1

    Gordon had 10 catches for 261 yards and two touchdowns last week and has a ridiculous 498 yards and three scores the last two weeks.

    1. 7
    2. Vincent Jackson
    3. Vincent
      Jackson
      WR
    4. REC YDS120
    5. REC TD1

    Jackson could be in for a huge day agianst a Buffalo defense that allows the second-most fantasy points per game to receivers.

    1. 8
    2. DeSean Jackson
    3. DeSean
      Jackson
      WR
    4. REC YDS114
    5. REC TD1

    Jackson could be a crucial player in fantasy leagues this week as the Lions allow the third-most fantasy points per game to receivers.

    1. 9
    2. Torrey Smith
    3. Torrey
      Smith
      WR
    4. REC YDS113
    5. REC TD1

    Smith caught six passes for 93 yards and a score and has to be excited after seeing what Alshon Jeffery did to the Vikings last week.

    1. 10
    2. Alshon Jeffery
    3. Alshon
      Jeffery
      WR
    4. REC YDS110
    5. REC TD1

    Jeffery posted an absolute monster of a game last week, catching 12 passes for a franchise-record 249 yards and two touchdowns. He should keep right on going against Dallas.

    1. 11
    2. Keenan Allen
    3. Keenan
      Allen
      WR
    4. REC YDS106
    5. REC TD1

    Allen had eight catches for 106 yards last week. He's a strong play this week.

    1. 12
    2. Larry Fitzgerald
    3. Larry
      Fitzgerald
      WR
    4. REC YDS102
    5. REC TD1

    Fitz had five catches for 72 yards and a touchdown last week and has five scores in his last five games.

    1. 13
    2. Dez Bryant
    3. Dez
      Bryant
      WR
    4. REC YDS102
    5. REC TD1

    Bryant should find plenty of room to operate against the Bears with Charles Tillman on the sideline.

    1. 14
    2. Wes Welker
    3. Wes
      Welker
      WR
    4. REC YDS94
    5. REC TD1

    Welker had just three catches for 38 yards last week and hasn't caught a touchdown since Week 8.

    1. 15
    2. Golden Tate
    3. Golden
      Tate
      WR
    4. REC YDS92
    5. REC TD1

    Tate had four catches for 45 yards last week. The 49ers present a challenge, but Tate should get plenty of targets with Percy Harvin still on the shelf.

    1. 16
    2. Roddy White
    3. Roddy
      White
      WR
    4. REC YDS92
    5. REC TD1

    White finally showed up, though it was just a tad too late for the Falcons. He caught 10 passes for 143 yards last week, and is a WR2 against the Packers.

    1. 17
    2. Antonio Brown
    3. Antonio
      Brown
      WR
    4. REC YDS90
    5. REC TD1

    Brown had his first down game in a while last week, catching five passes for 59 yards. It won't get much easier going up against Brent Grimes this week.

    1. 18
    2. Riley Cooper
    3. Riley
      Cooper
      WR
    4. REC YDS89
    5. REC TD1

    Cooper has had a few down games in a row, but could bounce back against a Detroit defense that allows the third-most fantasy points per game to receivers.

    1. 19
    2. Victor Cruz
    3. Victor
      Cruz
      WR
    4. REC YDS88
    5. REC TD1

    Cruz had six catches for 80 yards last week. He hasn't scored since Week 4, but I'm betting he gets back in the end zone against a San Diego defense that allows the fourth-most fantasy points per game to receivers.

    1. 20
    2. Cecil Shorts
    3. Cecil
      Shorts
      WR
    4. REC YDS86
    5. REC TD1

    2. Rod Streater
    3. Rod
      Streater
      WR
    4. REC YDS84
    5. REC TD1

    Streater had just three catches for 57 yards last week, but could bounce back against the Jets.

    1. 22
    2. T.Y. Hilton
    3. T.Y.
      Hilton
      WR
    4. REC YDS82
    5. REC TD1

    Hilton struggled again in a tough matchup last week. It doesn't get any easier, as the Bengals have allowed the seventh-fewest fantasy points per game to receivers.

    1. 23
    2. Jordy Nelson
    3. Jordy
      Nelson
      WR
    4. REC YDS82
    5. REC TD1

    Nelson had just two catches for 14 yards on Thanksgiving. The Aaron Rodgers injury really derailed what had been a spectacular season for the wideout.

    1. 24
    2. Kendall Wright
    3. Kendall
      Wright
      WR
    4. REC YDS81
    5. REC TD1

    Wright had six catches for 77 yards and is a strong play given that the Titans will have to throw a bunch.

    1. 25
    2. Michael Floyd
    3. Michael
      Floyd
      WR
    4. REC YDS80
    5. REC TD1

      Baldwin
      WR
    4. REC YDS80
    5. REC TD1

    1. 27
    2. Mike Wallace
    3. Mike
      Wallace
      WR
    4. REC YDS79
    5. REC TD1

    Wallace has had two strong games in a row, and Torrey Smith, who possesses a similar skill set, had six catches for 93 yards and a score against the Steelers last week.

    1. 28
    2. Tiquan Underwood
    3. Tiquan
      Underwood
      WR
    4. REC YDS73
    5. REC TD1

    If you're struggling at receiver this week, Underwood might be able to help. The Bills allow the second-most fantasy points per game to receivers.

    1. 29
    2. Ace Sanders
    3. Ace
      Sanders
      WR
    4. REC YDS72
    5. REC TD1

    Sanders caught eight of 11 targets for 67 yards a week ago, but you should be able to do better with your team at full strength.

    1. 30
    2. Dwayne Bowe
    3. Dwayne
      Bowe
      WR
    4. REC YDS72
    5. REC TD1

    Bowe had three catches for 56 yards last week. While the Redskins have improved a bit against receivers, they still allow the 11th-most fantasy points per game to the position.

    1. 31
    2. Brian Hartline
    3. Brian
      Hartline
      WR
    4. REC YDS64
    5. REC TD1

    3. Steve
      Smith
      WR
    4. REC YDS64

    3. Marques
      Colston
      WR
    4. REC YDS64
    5. REC TD1

    Colston was taken away for the second straight game last week, and it doesn't get much easier this week. the Panthers allow the fourth-fewest fantasy points per game to receivers.

    1. 34
    2. Jacoby Jones
    3. Jacoby
      Jones
      WR
    4. REC YDS59
    5. REC TD1

    Jones caught four passes for 53 yards a week ago. He's too deep an option for most leagues.

    2. James Jones
    3. James
      Jones
      WR
    4. REC YDS53
    5. REC TD1

    Jones had three catches for 79 yards on Thanksgiving, but he is no better than a WR2 with Matt Flynn at the helm.

    1. 36
    2. Danny Amendola
    3. Danny
      Amendola
      WR
    4. REC YDS43
    5. REC TD1

    Amendola had five catches for 54 yards last week, but was once again upstaged by Julian Edelman.

    1. 37
    2. Andre Holmes
    3. Andre
      Holmes
      WR
    4. REC YDS39
    5. REC TD1

    Holmes had seven catches for 136 yards last week and could be a sneaky play against a Jets defense that allows the seventh-most fantasy points per game to receivers.

    1. 38
    2. Pierre Garcon
    3. Pierre
      Garcon
      WR
    4. REC YDS91
    5. REC TD0

    Garcon had nine receptions last week, though they went for just 61 yards. He remains a WR2 against the Chiefs.

    1. 39
    2. Robert Woods
    3. Robert
      Woods
      WR
    4. REC YDS90
    5. REC TD0

    Woods could benefit this week simply by avoiding Darelle Revis.

    1. 40
    2. Eric Decker
    3. Eric
      Decker
      WR
    4. REC YDS89
    5. REC TD0

    After four straight ho-hum games, Decker exploded for eight receptions, 174 yards and four touchdowns last week. Get him in there against the Titans.

    1. 41
    2. Kris Durham
    3. Kris
      Durham
      WR
    4. REC YDS78
    5. REC TD0

    Durham could be a sneaky play in deep leagues going up against a Philadelphia defense that allows the most fantasy points per game to receivers.

    1. 42
    2. Jarrett Boykin
    3. Jarrett
      Boykin
      WR
    4. REC YDS78
    5. REC TD0

    Boykin didn't catch any of his three targets last week. He's a WR3 at best this week.

    1. 43
    2. Denarius Moore
    3. Denarius
      Moore
      WR
    4. REC YDS72
    5. REC TD0

    Moore sat out again last week because of his shoulder. If he plays, he'd be a solid play against a Jets defense that allows the seventh-most fantasy points per game to receivers.

    1. 44
    2. Cordarrelle Patterson
    3. Cordarrelle
      Patterson
      WR
    4. REC YDS70
    5. REC TD0

    Patterson caught one pass for four yards last week. He's a stash option for 2014 for those of you in keeper/dynasty leagues.

    1. 45
    2. Marvin Jones
    3. Marvin
      Jones
      WR
    4. REC YDS62
    5. REC TD0

    Jones had just two catches for 12 yards last week. His 15 minutes appear to be up.

    3. Brandon
      LaFell
      WR
    4. REC YDS61
    5. REC TD0

    LaFell caught three passes for 36 yards last week, showing off his inconsistent nature.

    1. 47

    3. Harry
      Douglas
      WR
    4. REC YDS61
    5. REC TD0

    Douglas caught six passes for 73 yards and got a ridiculous 15 targets last week. He's a WR3 with Roddy White seemingly at 100 percent.

      Hopkins
      WR
    4. REC YDS60

      Avery
      WR
    4. REC YDS60
    5. REC TD0

    Avery had just two catches for 17 yards last week. He is far too inconsistent to trust in fantasy leagues.

    1. 50
    2. Justin Hunter
    3. Justin
      Hunter
      WR
    4. REC YDS60
    5. REC TD0

    Hunter came crashing back to earth last week, catching one pass for nine yards. He is not a fantasy option.

    1. 51

    3. Michael
      Crabtree
      WR
    4. REC YDS60
    5. REC TD0

    Crabtree made his season debut last week, catching two passes for 68 yards. The matchup with Seattle isn't ideal, but he could be a real asset in the fantasy playoffs.

    1. 52
    2. Greg Jennings
    3. Greg
      Jennings
      WR
    4. REC YDS56
    5. REC TD0

      Avant
      WR
    4. REC YDS53
    5. REC TD0

      Washington
      WR
    4. REC YDS53

      Williams
      WR
    4. REC YDS53
    5. REC TD0

    Williams had three catches for 23 yards last week. The Bears are a decent matchup, but his days of fantasy relevance appear to have passed.

    1. 56
    2. Stevie Johnson
    3. Stevie
      Johnson
      WR
    4. REC YDS52
    5. REC TD0

    Johnson didn't do much with a great matchup last week and couild be stranded on Revis Island on Sunday.

    1. 57
    2. Hakeem Nicks
    3. Hakeem
      Nicks
      WR
    4. REC YDS51
    5. REC TD0

    Nicks has been an utter disaster this season. There's too much at stake in the fantasy playoffs to depend on him.

    1. 58
    2. Dexter McCluster
    3. Dexter
      McCluster
      WR
    4. REC YDS49

      Edelman
      WR
    4. REC YDS48
    5. REC TD0

    Edelman had his second consecutive big game, catching nine passes for 101 yards. He's still too inconsistent to trust.

    3. Aldrick
      Robinson
      WR
    4. REC YDS48
    5. REC TD0

    Robinson had two targets last week, but didn't catch either of them. He shouldn't be near your radar.

    3. Marlon
      Brown
      WR
    4. REC YDS47

    2. Andre Roberts
    3. Andre
      Roberts
      WR
    4. REC YDS47

    2. Emmanuel Sanders
    3. Emmanuel
      Sanders
      WR
    4. REC YDS42
    5. REC TD0

    Sanders had 11 targets last week and could be a sneaky play in deep leagues with Antonio Brown drawing a ton of attention from Brent Grimes.

    1. 64
    2. Chris Givens
    3. Chris
      Givens
      WR
    4. REC YDS42
    5. REC TD0

    3. Anquan
      Boldin
      WR
    4. REC YDS41
    5. REC TD0

    Boldin had nine catches for 98 yards last week, but he could be in for a healthy dose of Richard Sherman on Sunday.

      Simpson
      WR
    4. REC YDS40
    5. REC TD0

    Simpson got nine targets last week, catching three of them for 76 yards. Nothing will change his persona non grata status in fantasy leagues.

    1. 67
    2. Lance Moore
    3. Lance
      Moore
      WR
    4. REC YDS40
    5. REC TD0

    Moore had just two targets a week ago. It's hard to trust his secondary role in this offense against a defense like Carolina's.

    1. 68
    2. Santana Moss
    3. Santana
      Moss
      WR
    4. REC YDS40

      Austin
      WR
    4. REC YDS40
    5. REC TD0

    3. Darrius
      Heyward-Bey
      WR
    4. REC YDS37
    5. REC TD0

    Heyward-Bey continues to disappoint and shouldn't be anywhere near your radar.

    1. 71
    2. Austin Pettis
    3. Austin
      Pettis
      WR
    4. REC YDS35
    5. REC TD0

    Pettis cannot be trusted against an Arizona defense that has allowed the fifth-fewest fantasy points per game to receivers.

    1. 72
    2. Eddie Royal
    3. Eddie
      Royal
      WR
    4. REC YDS32
    5. REC TD0

    Royal missed last week's game and should not be trusted against the Giants.

    2. Kenny Stills
    3. Kenny
      Stills
      WR
    4. REC YDS31
    5. REC TD0

    Stills is a total boom-or-bust player, and that's not the kind of guy you want to roll with against a defense like Carolina's.

    1. 74
    2. Santonio Holmes
    3. Santonio
      Holmes
      WR
    4. REC YDS30
    5. REC TD0

    2. Rueben Randle
    3. Rueben
      Randle
      WR
    4. REC YDS30
    5. REC TD0

    Randle has provided the fantasy community with a handful of good games this year. That could happen again this week, as the Chargers allow the fourth-most fantasy points per game to receivers.

    1. 76
    2. Jerricho Cotchery
    3. Jerricho
      Cotchery
      WR
    4. REC YDS29
    5. REC TD0

    Cotchery cuaght just two of his six targets for six yards last week. He's nearly impossible to trust.

    1. 77
    2. Ted Ginn Jr.
    3. Ted
      Ginn Jr.
      WR
    4. REC YDS29

    3. Aaron
      Dobson
      WR
    4. REC YDS27
    5. REC TD0

    Dobson was inactive a week ago and would be an extremely risky play if he were to suit up this week.

    Thompkins will benefit with Aaron Dobson inactive again, but he is no longer a fantasy option.

      WR

    Keenan Allen is the only San Diego receiver I trust against a Giants defense that allows the ninth-fewest fantasy points per game to the position.

    1. 81
    2. Rishard Matthews
    3. Rishard
      Matthews
      WR
    4. REC YDS20
    5. REC TD0

    Matthews' big game a few weeks back was nothing but a fluke. Write him off.

    1. 82
    2. David Nelson
    3. David
      Nelson
      WR
    4. REC YDS20
    5. REC TD0

    Nelson led the way for the Jets last week with three catches for 37 yards. This is a terrible pass offense that you want to avoid at all costs.

    1. 83
    2. Stephen Hill
    3. Stephen
      Hill
      WR
    4. REC YDS18
    5. REC TD0

    Hill had one catch for two yards against the Dolphins, his best game in three weeks. That is not a typo.

    1. 84
    2. Mario Manningham
    3. Mario
      Manningham
      WR
    4. REC YDS16
    5. REC TD0

    Manningham should see his role reduced now that Michael Crabtree is back.

    1. 85
    2. Tavon Austin
    3. Tavon
      Austin
      WR
    4. REC YDS14
    5. REC TD0

    Last week proved that Austin cannot count on the fluke big play to be productive every single week.

    1. 86
    2. Percy Harvin
    3. Percy
      Harvin
      WR
    4. REC YDS0
    5. REC TD0

    Harvin has yet to practice this week, so we have to assume he is unlikely to play against the 49ers on Sunday.
