With another exciting week of football under our belts, here are the Lester’s Legends 2013 Week 6 fantasy football wide receiver rankings.


1. Dez Bryant, Dallas Cowboys

Dez Bryant is averaging 84.6 yards and 1.2 touchdowns per game. This week he faces the Washington Redskins. They have allowed 298.3 yards and 2.3 touchdowns per game. He had 216 yards and a pair of touchdowns in two meetings with Washington last year.


2. Wes Welker, Denver Broncos

Wes Welker is averaging just 63 yards per game, but he has an NFL-leading seven touchdowns. I don't see how the Jacksonville Jaguars can contain him. They have allowed 12 passing scores.


3. Brandon Marshall, Chicago Bears

Brandon Marshall is averaging 75.6 yards and 0.6 touchdowns. This week he faces the New York Giants. They have allowed 269.2 yards and 2.4 touchdowns per game.


4. Demaryius Thomas, Denver Broncos


Demaryius Thomas is averaging 90 yards and 0.8 touchdowns. The Jags don't have anyone to handle his size and athleticism.


5. Torrey Smith, Baltimore Ravens


Torrey Smith is averaging 111.2 yards per game. He has scored just one touchdown, but he's had at least 85 yards in every game. He faces the Green Bay Packers this week. They have allowed 288.8 yards and 2.3 touchdowns per game.


6. A.J. Green, Cincinnati Bengals


A.J. Green is averaging 72.2 yards and 0.6 touchdowns. He's been limited by Ike Taylor, Joe Haden and the weather in three of the past four games. Look for him to get on track against the Buffalo Bills. They have allowed 261.4 yards and 1.8 touchdowns per game.


7. Victor Cruz, New York Giants


Victor Cruz is averaging 94.6 yards and 0.8 touchdowns. This week he's facing the Chicago Bears. They have allowed 278.4 yards and a pair of touchdowns per game.


8. Calvin Johnson, Detroit Lions

Calvin Johnson missed last week because of a knee injury. If he goes, he'll likely be less than 100 percent. He'll also have to deal with Cleveland Browns shutdown corner Joe Haden.


9. Jordy Nelson, Green Bay Packers


Jordy Nelson is averaging 92.8 yards and 0.6 touchdowns. He's facing the Baltimore Ravens this week.


10. Vincent Jackson, Tampa Bay Buccaneers


Vincent Jackson has had his numbers erode every week. He had the bye week to get on the same page as Mike Glennon. Josh Freeman is no longer a distraction. The Philadelphia Eagles come to town. They have allowed 326 yards and 2.2 touchdowns.


11. Andre Johnson, Houston Texans

Andre Johnson is averaging 7.4 receptions for 81.4 yards. He has yet to score a touchdown, but he sees a high volume of targets. Perhaps he breaks through against the St. Louis Rams. They have allowed 256.4 yards per game and 11 touchdown passes.


12. Pierre Garcon, Washington Redskins


Pierre Garcon is averaging 84.8 yards and 0.5 touchdowns. He is facing the Dallas Cowboys this week. They have allowed 326.4 yards and 2.8 touchdowns per game.


13. Eric Decker, Denver Broncos


Eric Decker is averaging 85.4 yards and 0.4 touchdowns. He has had at least 87 yards in his past four games.


14. Randall Cobb, Green Bay Packers


Randall Cobb is averaging 100.8 total yards and 0.5 touchdowns. Look for the Green Bay Packers to be creative with his usage against the Ravens.

15. Hakeem Nicks, New York Giants

Hakeem Nicks is averaging 74.4 yards. The Giants have no running game so they'll look to get the ball to their wide receivers.



16. Anquan Boldin, San Francisco 49ers


Anquan Boldin is averaging 78.6 yards and 0.4 touchdowns. He is facing the Arizona Cardinals, the franchise where he got his start. They are allowing 264.4 yards and 1.6 touchdowns per game.


17. Josh Gordon, Cleveland Browns

Josh Gordon is averaging 101 yards. Going back to Brandon Weeden hurts his value a little, but he's still a quality option against the Detroit Lions.


18. Steve Smith, Carolina Panthers


Steve Smith is averaging just 50.8 yards with one touchdown this year. He should get on track against the Minnesota Vikings. They have allowed 326 yards and 2.5 touchdowns.


19. Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh Steelers


Antonio Brown is averaging 103 yards and 0.5 touchdowns. This week he faces the New York Jets.


20. Alshon Jeffery, Chicago Bears


Alshon Jeffery is averaging 97.2 total yards and 0.4 touchdowns. In his last two games he's averaging 162.5 yards and a score. Marshall and Matt Forte take so much attention that Jeffery is able to make plays.


21. Reggie Wayne, Indianapolis Colts


Reggie Wayne is averaging 73 yards and 0.4 touchdowns. This week he faces the San Diego Chargers. They have allowed 288.8 yards and a pair of touchdowns per game.


22. Justin Blackmon, Jacksonville Jaguars


Justin Blackmon made a strong season debut with five catches for 136 yards and a touchdown against the St. Louis Rams. The Jags will pass early and often against the Broncos. They have allowed 347 yards and 2.2 touchdowns per game.


23. T.Y. Hilton, Indianapolis Colts


T.Y. Hilton has been hit-or-miss this year for the Indianapolis Colts. He has a favorable matchup against the Chargers.


24. Marques Colston, New Orleans Saints


Marques Colston was nonexistent last week. Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots try to take away a strength, which means they will likely key in on Jimmy Graham or Darren Sproles. Colston should take advantage of that.


25. DeSean Jackson, Philadelphia Eagles


DeSean Jackson is averaging 105 yards and 0.6 touchdowns per game. He'll likely have to rely on Nick Foles against Darrelle Revis and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.


26. Cecil Shorts, Jacksonville Jaguars


Cecil Shorts is averaging 82.2 yards. He scored his first touchdown of the season last week against the Rams. He should see a ton of targets against Denver.


27. Danny Amendola, New England Patriots


Danny Amendola returned with four catches for 55 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals. He played on a snap count. Look for Amendola to be on the field more often against the Saints.


28. Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona Cardinals


Larry Fitzgerald is averaging 57.6 yards and 0.6 touchdowns. He has a tough draw against the San Francisco 49ers.
