One of last year’s top fantasy receivers, Josh Gordon, is facing a season-long suspension, but there are still plenty of talented wideouts to choose from. These players are studs no matter the scoring system.
Calvin Johnson and his stat lines have locked down best receiver with a level of dominance perhaps never before seen at that position. With Megatron sitting atop the podium, who currently owns the title of second most dangerous receiver in the NFL: Dez Bryant or A.J. Green?
Every year around this time, I find myself getting asked the same question over and over again from people who know I enjoy football. “So, who do you like this season?”
Here’s what you need to know about the wide receiver position this year: It’s deep. Here’s our top 12.
The NFC’s all-pro offense features Packers QB Aaron Rodgers handing the ball to AP and tossing it to Megatron. Who else?
The Hawks played zone almost exclusively against the Lions, and Matthew Stafford exploited it even better than New England’s Tom Brady did two weeks before.
The second-year cornerback has become notorious over the last month for his brash trash-talking antics.
While the offense seemingly did enough in one of its best performances this season, Seattle’s defense gave up the winning touchdown with 20 seconds left in a 28-24 loss to the Detroit Lions.
Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman’s new nickname has apparently motivated Detroit receiver Calvin Johnson, but after being shut down by Charles Tillman on Monday, can Johnson, aka “Megatron,”Brian Bahr/Getty Images beat Seattle’s big, aggressive duo of Sherman and Brandon Browner?
On Sunday, all eyes will be on Pete Carroll’s big, bad Seattle Seahawks secondary and Jim Schwartz’s talented and sometimes brutal Detroit Lions defensive line.
