With an exciting ninth week under our belts, here are the LestersLegends 2012 Week 10 fantasy football wide receiver rankings.


1. Julio Jones, Atlanta Falcons

Julio is averaging 126.0 yards the past two games and has a dream matchup against New Orleans.


2. A.J. Green, Cincinnati Bengals

Green has scored in seven straight games. The Giants are giving up 264.3 yards per game.


3. Brandon Marshall, Chicago Bears

Marshall is averaging 116.6 yards with six touchdowns in the past five games. Houston is tough, but Marshall is on fire.



4. Roddy White, Atlanta Falcons

There will be plenty of production to go around against New Orleans.


5. Eric Decker, Denver Broncos

Decker has seven touchdowns in the past five games. Manning is dialed in. Look for a strong game against the Panthers.


6. Demaryius Thomas, Denver Broncos

Thomas is averaging 106.8 yards in his past five games. He should roll against Carolina.


7. Reggie Wayne, Indianapolis Colts

Wayne has a great rapport with Andrew Luck. He's averaging a career-high 104.4 yards per game. Reggie had eight catches for 88 yards in the first meeting with Jacksonville.



8. Calvin Johnson, Detroit Lions

Megatron was able to battle through his knee issues for 129 yards against Jacksonville. He's going to be a tall task for Minnesota.


9. Vincent Jackson, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Averaging 101.2 yards and a touchdown over the past five games. San Diego has allowed 14 passing scores.



10. Miles Austin, Dallas Cowboys

Miles is averaging 102.0 yards the past three games. Takes on the Eagles.


11. Marques Colston, New Orleans Saints


Colston will need to be active to keep pace with the Falcons.


12. Wes Welker, New England Patriots

Welker had nine catches for 129 yards in the first meeting with Buffalo, though he's been quieter the past two games.


13. Victor Cruz, New York Giants

Cruz hasn't salsa danced for two weeks. Faces the Bengals in Cincinnati.


14. Mike Wallace, Pittsburgh Steelers

With his explosive speed he can score at any time. The Chiefs have allowed 17 passing touchdowns.




15. Jeremy Maclin, Philadelphia Eagles

Maclin should be a solid play against Dallas.


16. Malcom Floyd, San Diego Chargers

Averaging 4.5 catches in his past four games. Tampa Bay has allowed 321.1 passing yards per game.


17. Hakeem Nicks, New York Giants

Should be a matter of time until Nicks regains form. Will it happen this week against Cincinnati?


18. Stevie Johnson, Buffalo Bills

Stevie was kept in check in the first meeting with New England but scored in both games against them last year. He's banged up so keep an eye on his availability.



19. Dwayne Bowe, Kansas City Chiefs


Caught eight passes for 79 yards last week. Next up is Pittsburgh.


20. Andre Johnson, Houston Texans

Averaging 8.3 catches for 93.0 yards the past three games, but Chicago presents a tough matchup.


21. Steve Smith, Carolina Panthers

Smith scored his first touchdown last week. Next up is Denver.


22. Lance Moore, New Orleans Saints


Should see additional targets against Atlanta with Darren Sproles out.


23. Dez Bryant, Dallas Cowboys

If he's healthy, he's a decent WR2 against Philadelphia.


24. Denarius Moore, Oakland Raiders

Moore is averaging 69.3 yards with four touchdowns in seven games. Baltimore has allowed 246.8 passing yards per game.



25. Brandon Lloyd, New England Patriots

Lloyd scored twice in London prior to the bye. He also scored in the first meeting with Buffalo.


26. Sidney Rice, Seattle Seahawks


Has three touchdowns in the past four games. Takes on the Jets.


27. DeSean Jackson, Philadelphia Eagles

DeSean brings big play ability in his home game against Dallas.


28. Torrey Smith, Baltimore Ravens

Smith has scored in two of his past three games. He should do well against Oakland.


29. Mike Williams, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Williams is averaging 80.0 yards with three touchdowns in the past five games. Solid WR3 against San Diego.



30. Michael Crabtree, San Francisco 49ers


Crabtree scored a pair of touchdowns prior to last week's bye. He faces the Rams.


31. Darrius Heyward-Bey, Oakland Raiders

DHB is averaging 63.7 yards the past three games. The Raiders will be forced to pass often against Baltimore.


32. Danny Amendola, St. Louis Rams

Amendola should return this week against the Niners and see plenty of targets.


33. Anquan Boldin, Baltimore Ravens

Boldin is averaging 78.4 yards the past five games. Faces Oakland.


34. Emmanuel Sanders, Pittsburgh Steelers


I'm expecting an ankle injury to keep Antonio Brown out, which makes Sanders a decent WR3 against Kansas City.



35. Brian Hartline, Miami Dolphins

Hartline caught eight passes for 107 yards against the Colts. He is a solid WR3 against a bad Titans pass defense.


36. Titus Young, Detroit Lions

The ground game did the damage last week. This week Young should be able to exploit the Vikings secondary.


37. Donald Jones, Buffalo Bills

Jones has 10 receptions in the past two games. He scored in the first meeting with New England.



38. T.Y. Hilton, Indianapolis Colts

Hilton could be a solid option if Donnie Avery's hip forces him to miss the game against Jacksonville. He caught six passes for 102 yards and a touchdown last week.


39. Kenny Britt, Tennessee Titans

Caught five passes for 67 yards last week. Will he finally break out against Miami?


40. Cecil Shorts, Jacksonville Jaguars

Averaging 83.7 yards in his past three games. Faces the Colts.
