Top 75 WRs: 2012 PPR Wide Receiver Fantasy Football Rankings (Updated 8/30)

Antonio Brown Will Make Your Fantasy Team The Best It Can Be!

The Steelers have had the good fortune of developing mid-round draft picks into viable Pro Bowl weapons over the past few seasons. Mike Wallace is one of the more explosive deep threats in the game and Antonio Brown is one of top up and coming possession receivers around.

While it’s good to hear Wallace is back on the practice field and should be a go for the team's Week 1 game in Denver, fantasy owners need to be cautious in thinking he’s ready to make an impact early on.

Going as a WR3, Wallace has fair value, but I would look to perhaps other receivers to start if you go with three receivers in your lineup Week 1.

On the flip side, you might think Wallace returning to the lineup would hurt Brown, but things couldn’t be further from the truth. With Wallace, defenses now have to respect his deep speed and that will clear out lanes for Brown underneath.

Not only has Brown landed a new contract this summer, but he’s looked terrific in the preseason and it appears he’s ready to take his game to a low-end WR1 level in PPR leagues.

Trending as a fifth-round pick, we should actually target him as more of a late fourth-round pick and a rock-solid  WR2, or WR1 if you wait on receiver until the fourth round.
