Here are my top 45 wide receivers for Week 11 (points-per-reception leagues).

This countdown 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.

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

NOTE: The Seahawks, Giants, Titans and Vikings all have bye weeks.

Quick Hitters

1. Marques Colston has been a fantasy force away from the cozy confines of the Superdome. In his last eight road games (including last year's playoffs), he boasts per-outing averages of seven catches, 98 yards and 0.63 touchdowns. Going one step further, Colston crossed the PPR-elite threshold of six catches, 95 yards and/or one touchdown six times.

2. According to Pro Football Reference, the Colts and Patriots stopped being divisional rivals after the 2001 season. And yet, Indy's Reggie Wayne has a long track record of success against New England's pass defense. From 2002-2011, spanning nine regular season games, Wayne averaged 5.8 catches, 78 yards and 0.6 touchdowns.

3. Remember Laurent Robinson, the Jaguars' high-priced offseason signing who was also a top-40 wideout in August? Well, in his last two weeks, he has flown under the fantasy radar with 15 catches, 118 yards and 24 targets. Of equal importance, his reemergence comes at a time when fantasy GMs are racking their brains trying to make sense of Jacksonville's ever-changing pecking order at receiver.

Who's No. 1? Robinson, Cecil Shorts or Justin Blackmon?

Of the trio, Robinson is the only one with a spurt of 11 touchdowns in 10 games. He accomplished that with Tony Romo and the Cowboys last year.
