With an exciting first week under our belts, here are the LestersLegends 2012 Week 2 fantasy football wide receiver rankings:
1. Julio Jones, Atlanta Falcons
I am buying in big time. The dude is on par with Megatron. He should continue to put up big numbers, this time, against Denver.
2. Calvin Johnson, Detroit Lions
I haven't lost faith in Megatron. His matchup with the Niners keeps him out of the top slot this week.
3. Brandon Marshall, Chicago Bears
Had 119 yards and a score in his first game back with Cutler. He should produce against the Packers, who continue to struggle against the pass.
4. Andre Johnson, Houston Texans
Had 119 yards and a touchdown to show he still has it going on when healthy. He should dominate Jacksonville.
5. Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona Cardinals
The Patriots' weakness is the pass and the Cardinals will be down and throwing. If Kolb wants a shot at keeping the gig, he'll get Fitz the ball.
6. Jordy Nelson, Green Bay Packers
The Pack will bounce back against Chicago. Last time, Jordy torched them for 115 yards and a pair of scores.
7. Demaryius Thomas, Denver Broncos
Peyton's top weapon had 110 yards and a score. He should benefit from Grimes' absence for Atlanta.
8. Victor Cruz, New York Giants
Cruz had a disappointing game. Assuming he fixes the drops, he should be salsa dancing against Tampa Bay.
9. Reggie Wayne, Indianapolis Colts
He had 18 targets, catching half of them for 135 yards. He should torch the Vikings.
10. Dez Bryant, Dallas Cowboys
Ogletree stole the show, but Bryant is the most talented WR in Dallas. He should have a nice game against Seattle, building on the 85 yards he had in the opener.
11. Hakeem Nicks, New York Giants
He had a slow first game, but had plenty of time to rest and heal to face the Bucs.
12. A.J. Green, Cincinnati Bengals
With Haden out, Green has a lot less to worry about against Cleveland.
13. Roddy White, Atlanta Falcons
Julio is the man and will start getting more attention, which will open things up for Roddy against Denver.
14. Steve Smith, Carolina Panthers
Smith racked up 106 yards in the opener. A big game should be in store against the Saints.
15. Pierre Garcon, Washington Redskins
He's a little banged up, but should be good to go against St. Louis. RG3′s top option should deliver.
16. Percy Harvin, Minnesota Vikings
Harvin had 104 total yards in the opener. He remains one of the most dynamic athletes in the league. The Vikes should try to get him even more involved against the Colts.
17. Brandon Lloyd, New England Patriots
Lloyd had 69 yards in the opener and will look to get deep against the Cardinals. Brady will get it to him.
18. Marques Colston, New Orleans Saints
He was a little banged up, but Colston is one of the tougher WRs in the league. The Saints will look to bounce back against Carolina, and Colston will be a big part of the game plan.
19. Miles Austin, Dallas Cowboys
Ogletree stole the show, but with more time to heal, Austin should make a big impact against Seattle.
20. Mike Wallace, Pittsburgh Steelers
Not bad for a holdout. Wallace got thirty-seven yards and a score. He gets to face the Jets this week, but with his speed, he can get open on anybody.
21. DeSean Jackson, Philadelphia Eagles
Maclin is hurting so the Eagles should rely on Jackson more as they look to improve on their ugly first win. They take on Baltimore this week.
22. Wes Welker, New England Patriots
Welker didn't get many looks last week. He should return to form this week.
23. Greg Jennings, Green Bay Packers
He had a disappointing first week with 34 yards. I expect him to bounce back against Chicago. Last time, he caught nine passes for 119 yards.
24. Dwayne Bowe, Kansas City Chiefs
He had 53 yards in the opener and should give the Bills fits in Week 2.
25. Torrey Smith, Baltimore Ravens
He had 70 total yards last week. Tough draw against Philly, but he should still be a solid WR2.
26. Eric Decker, Denver Broncos
Decker had 54 yards in the opener. It's only a matter of time before Peyton makes him a star.
27. Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh Steelers
Brown had 78 total yards. He's a safer pick than Wallace.
28. Jeremy Maclin, Philadelphia Eagles
He's a little banged up. If his hip checks out, he could move up the ranks a bit.
29. Stevie Johnson, Buffalo Bills
He had 55 catches and a score. I'm still worried about his groin injury against Kansas City.
30. Malcom Floyd, San Diego Chargers
Floyd caught four passes for 66 yards and a score. This week, he takes on Tennessee.
31. Vincent Jackson, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
He only had 47 yards on four catches in the opener, but should improve against the Giants, who looked vulnerable to the pass.
32. Lance Moore, New Orleans Saints
Brees loves going to Moore, who had 120 yards and a score in the opener.
33. Michael Crabtree, San Francisco 49ers
He caught seven passes for 76 yards. He should be targeted heavily against Detroit.
34. Brandon LaFell, Carolina Panthers
I'm expecting a shootout against the Saints. LaFell had 65 yards and a score in the opener.
35. Nate Washington, Tennessee Titans
Kenny Britt is back, but Washington will lead the way against San Diego. He had 53 yards and a TD last week.
36. Santonio Holmes, New York Jets
Stephen Hill stole the show, but Holmes finished with a solid 68 yards. He should be amped up facing his former mates.
37. Anquan Boldin, Baltimore Ravens
Boldin showed he still has something left after posting 63 yards and a score.
38. Darrius Heyward-Bey, Oakland Raiders
He should do much better than the 43 yards he managed last week when he takes on Miami.
39. Kevin Ogletree, Dallas Cowboys
I am trying not to climb aboard too quickly, but after his game and going by Laurent Robinson's numbers last year, he has the chance to do well against Seattle. Dez, Miles, Witten and Murray command so much attention.
40. Alshon Jeffery, Chicago Bears
Had 80 yards and a score in the opener, and his size will likely come into play against Green Bay.
