With an exciting eighth week under our belts, here are the LestersLegends 2012 Week 9 fantasy football wide receiver rankings.
1. Brandon Marshall, Chicago Bears
Marshall is averaging 115.3 yards with three touchdowns in the past four games. He is facing a Titans team that has allowed 282 yards per game and 17 passing scores.
2. Demaryius Thomas, Denver Broncos
Thomas is on fire with a pair of touchdowns and 114.3 yards per game over the past four. Faces the Bengals.
3. A.J. Green, Cincinnati Bengals
Coming off a bye and a quiet game, but has scored in six straight. Takes on Denver.
4. Victor Cruz, New York Giants
Was really quiet last week, but should bounce back against the Steelers.
5. Julio Jones, Atlanta Falcons
Rebounded in a big way against the Eagles. Next up is Dallas
6. Eric Decker, Denver Broncos
Has five touchdowns in the past four games. Peyton is locked in.
7. Reggie Wayne, Indianapolis Colts
Only has two touchdowns, but he's averaging 108.1 yards per game. The Dolphins are giving up 281.0 yards per game.
8. Jordy Nelson, Green Bay Packers
With a week of rest he should be ready to roll against the Cardinals.
9. Percy Harvin, Minnesota Vikings
Seattle is tough, but Percy is a beast.
10. Miles Austin, Dallas Cowboys
Averaging 115.0 yards the past two games. It should be a shootout against Atlanta.
11. Vincent Jackson, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Quiet against the Vikings as it was the Doug Martin Show, but he should be trouble for Oakland's secondary.
12. Calvin Johnson, Detroit Lions
Megatron isn't himself as he's playing hurt, but I'm expecting a much better game against Jacksonville.
13. Marques Colston, New Orleans Saints
Had a mediocre game against Denver, but should be solid against Philly.
14. Roddy White, Atlanta Falcons
Only averaging 59.3 yards the past three games, but could easily explode against Dallas.
15. Mike Wallace, Pittsburgh Steelers
Hasn't scored in two games, but could slip past the Giants, who gave up a ton of yards to Dallas last week.
16. Dez Bryant, Dallas Cowboys
Dez nearly made a great grab, but still finished with a solid 110 yards against the Giants. Will be tough on Atlanta.
17. Jeremy Maclin, Philadelphia Eagles
At the mercy of Vick's play, but Maclin and DeSean Jackson should be solid against a brutal Saints defense.
18. DeSean Jackson, Philadelphia Eagles
See Maclin, Jeremy.
19. Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona Cardinals
The Packers can be passed on. Fitz is as difficult a cover as there is. The key will be if they can have time.
20. Dwayne Bowe, Kansas City Chiefs
San Diego has allowed 14 touchdown passes and 246.6 passing yards per game. Bowe should be better.
21. Andre Johnson, Houston Texans
The ground game will do most of the damage, but AJ could torment the Bills as well.
22. Steve Smith, Carolina Panthers
Skins are giving up 314.3 yards per game. Look for a big day from Smith.
23. James Jones, Green Bay Packers
Hasn't scored the past two games but remains a threat at the level Rodgers is playing at.
24. Randall Cobb, Green Bay Packers
Has four touchdowns in the past four games.
25. Denarius Moore, Oakland Raiders
Has four touchdowns in the past five games. Tampa is giving up 309.6 ypg.
26. Hakeem Nicks, New York Giants
He still hasn't shown the explosion so I'll be cautious against Pittsburgh.
27. Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh Steelers
Only has one touchdown and the once steady Brown has two duds in his past three games. The Giants present a quality matchup though.
28. Torrey Smith, Baltimore Ravens
Quiet the past few weeks and has Joe Haden looming. WR3 at best.
29. Lance Moore, New Orleans Saints
Quiet since Jimmy Graham returned. Still a threat with Brees against Philly.
30. Darrius Heyward-Bey, Oakland Raiders
Scored last week, but it was his only catch. Should do better against the Bucs.
31. Stevie Johnson, Buffalo Bills
Tough matchup with Houston makes him a WR3 option this week.
32. Santana Moss, Washington Redskins
Has four touchdowns in the past four games. Takes on Carolina
33. Mike Williams, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Has 100 yards or a touchdown in three of the past four games. Takes on Oakland.
34. Malcom Floyd, San Diego Chargers
He's not scoring, but that could change against Kansas City, who has allowed 15 passing touchdowns.
35. Anquan Boldin, Baltimore Ravens
Should bounce back from his 24-yard game before the bye. He averaged 103.7 in the three games prior. Faces Browns.
36. Josh Gordon, Cleveland Browns
Averaging 71.5 yards and a touchdown in the past four games. Faces the Ravens.
37. Andre Roberts, Arizona Cardinals
Borderline WR3 against the Pack.
38. Brian Hartline, Miami Dolphins
Didn't have a great game against the Jets, but he was targeted six times. He should continue to rebound against Indianapolis.
39. Kendall Wright, Tennessee Titans
Scored last week and continues to see a lot of targets. Tough draw against Chicago.
40. Kenny Britt, Tennessee Titans
The Bears are a tough match-up, but Britt is a threat.
