Fantasy Football 2012: 5 WRs to Avoid

As the fantasy football 2012 season has grown closer, just like every other fantasy season, certain observations and opinions get beaten to death.

Among those opinions this year is the belief that the WR position is incredibly deep. Most people seem to agree with this, as the NFL shifted more to a passing attack last year and saw many receivers post stats that were previously reserved for the elite. 

Since fantasy football is about getting the best value for your pick, it's a good idea to stay away from players that are low-upside or high-risk in relation to players being picked around them.

Even though the group of fantasy WRs this year is a very deep one, it is still filled with trap picks and pitfalls that could help derail your fantasy season before it begins.

These five guys, in relation to the players they're considered equal to, are less than desirable picks. If you can avoid them, your initial post-draft fantasy football team will be that much better.

That doesn't mean don't draft them at all, but wait for them to fall before considering them.
