Top 75 WR's: 2012 Wide Receiver Fantasy Football Rankings (Updated 9/1)
Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE
Pay Me Or I'll Pack It In!

The final weekend for drafts before we get started with the Cowboys and Giants on Wednesday night. I wanted to go over some problem child receivers who have the talent to be WR1 producers, but are best left as WR2 or WR3 options on your draft board.

 

Percy Harvin

As we witnessed from Harvin down the stretch last season, he can be a top-five fantasy receiver in spurts. Unfortunately, he’s known for being a pain in the butt to his coaching staff and more importantly he's had problems staying on the field.

Because of that I find his value to be more like a low-end WR2, even though he gets some added value because of his touches in the running game.

 

Dez Bryant

At one point I had Bryant listed as a top-10 receiver, after Miles Austin and Jason Witten went down with injuries. Then Bryant had an knee injury of his own and I tailed him back as WR2 option.

Bryant has his problems off the field, but he’s been a dominant force on the practice field during training camp and I believe he’s out to prove something in year three.

Expect Bryant to be Tony Romo’s favorite target in the red zone, and while Bryant should be a WR2 target, if healthy, I’m confident he can deliver top-five numbers.

 

DeSean Jackson

The guy basically admitted he quit on his team last year, and yet was rewarded with a new contract. I’m not a fan of Jackson, and that pains me to admit because I’m a lifelong Pac-12 guy.

Jackson is one of the better game breaking players in the NFL and it appears he’s focused on atoning for his bust season. Like Chris Johnson in Tennessee, I probably won’t trust Jackson after this season, but while motivated, he can be of use.

If you can land Jackson as a WR3 in standard leagues, I think that’s fair value.
