Here are my top 50 wide receivers for Week 11 (standard-scoring leagues).

This countdown simply identifies the weekend's best bets for catches, total yards, touchdowns and receiving targets—a stat that must always factor into lineup strategies with receivers, tight ends and running backs.

NOTE: The Seahawks, Titans, Vikings and Giants are all on byes.

When it comes to crafting a weekly listing of elite wide receivers, simply follow the trail of quarterbacks primed for Week 11 glory...or the wideouts with great track records against middling pass defenses.

On the injury front, Antonio Brown (ankle) shall remain off the board for now.

Quick Hitters

1. In nine career outings against the Packers, Lions wideout Calvin Johnson (60 catches, 974 yards, two TDs) has crossed the PPR-elite threshold of six catches, 95 yards and/or one touchdown seven times. Going one step further, Johnson has four games of 100-plus yards and/or two touchdowns against Green Bay.

2. Through six games, Danny Amendola has collected nine-plus targets five times, but that's only an appetizer to the following stat: In even-numbered games this season, Amendola boasts stellar averages of 11 catches, 106 yards and 0.66 touchdowns.

3. Roddy White (54 catches, 823 yards, four TDs) has been amazing at home this season, averaging 7.3 catches, 115 yards and one touchdown (four games). He also has a strong track record against the Cardinals: Per-outing averages of nine catches, 14 targets, 81 yards and one TD in his last two meetings.

4. All signs point to A.J. Green, the No. 1 fantasy wideout, adding to his streak of eight straight games with a touchdown. But I've got a sinking feeling his end-zone dominance gets halted in Kansas City on Sunday. That said, I still love Green for seven receptions and 102 yards against the Chiefs.

5. For what it's worth, Brandon Marshall (67 catches, 904 yards, seven TDs) has had only one regular-season encounter against the 49ers, during his rookie campaign with the Broncos (2006). On that season's final Sunday, Marshall finished with a pedestrian two catches for 20 yards.

Does that mean anything for this weekend? I certainly hope not.
