The forward-thinking eggheads at Rotowire have painstakingly crunched the numbers to determine fantasy football's best wide receiver tandems for 2012, citing the vital categories of Targets, Catches, Yards Receiving and Receiving Touchdowns.

Catches: Wes Welker (103), Brandon Lloyd (64) = 167 total
Receiving Yards: Victor Cruz (1,433), Hakeem Nicks (1,159) = 2,592 total
Touchdowns: Calvin Johnson (15), Titus Young (5) = 20 total
