Most fantasy leagues have wrapped up already, but there are some that still play to the bitter end. For those leagues, I present the Lester’s Legends 2013 Week 17 fantasy football wide receiver rankings.

 

1. Dez Bryant, Dallas Cowboys

Dez Bryant is averaging 75.6 yards and 0.8 touchdowns per game. He has scored a touchdown in four straight games. Dez should finish strong against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles have allowed 285.2 passing yards and 1.5 touchdowns per game. Dez had 110 yards in the first meeting.

 

2. Josh Gordon, Cleveland Browns

Josh Gordon is averaging 120.3 yards and 0.7 touchdowns. The last time he played the Pittsburgh Steelers, he had 14 catches for 237 yards and a touchdown.



3. Brandon Marshall, Chicago Bears

Brandon Marshall has scored in both games since Jay Cutler's return. He should have another strong game against the Green Bay Packers. He had 107 yards and a score in the first meeting. The Pack have allowed 248.8 yards and 1.9 touchdowns per game.

 

4. Demaryius Thomas, Denver Broncos

Demaryius Thomas is averaging 87.8 yards and 0.8 touchdowns per game. He should see plenty of looks as Peyton Manning attempts to set the single-season passing yards record against the Oakland Raiders. The Raiders have yielded 250.5 yards and 1.9 touchdowns per game. Thomas caught 10 balls for 94 yards in the first meeting.

 

5. Eric Decker, Denver Broncos

Eric Decker is averaging 116 yards and 1.8 touchdowns in his past four games. He's thriving with Wes Welker (concussion) out of the mix. Decker caught eight passes for 133 yards and a score in the first game against the Raiders.

 

6. DeSean Jackson, Philadelphia Eagles

DeSean Jackson is averaging 86.9 yards and 0.6 touchdowns per game. He should light up the Dallas Cowboys. The Boys have allowed 290.7 yards and 2.1 touchdowns per game.

 

7. Pierre Garcon, Washington Redskins

Pierre Garcon is averaging nine catches for 136.5 yards and a touchdown with Kirk Cousins under center. He should finish strong against the New York Giants.

 

8. A.J. Green, Cincinnati Bengals

A.J. Green is averaging 91 yards and 0.7 touchdowns. He had 151 yards and a score in his first meeting with the Baltimore Ravens.

 

9. Alshon Jeffery, Chicago Bears

Alshon Jeffrey is averaging 96.4 total yards and 0.5 touchdowns per game. He had 60 yards and a touchdown in the first meeting with the Packers.

 

10. Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh Steelers

Antonio Brown is averaging 94.1 yards and 0.5 yards per game with an additional score in the return game. He had 92 yards and a touchdown in the first meeting against the Cleveland Browns.

 

11. Keenan Allen, San Diego Chargers

Keenan Allen has five touchdown catches in the past three games. He's averaging 68.8 yards and a score in his past five games. Allen had nine catches for 124 yards in the first meeting with the Kansas City Chiefs.

 

12. Julian Edelman, New England Patriots

Julian Edelman is averaging 98.2 yards and 0.8 touchdowns in the past five games. He should have a strong finale against the Buffalo Bills. The Bills have allowed 1.8 touchdowns per game. Edelman had 79 yards and two touchdowns in the first meeting.

 

13. Andre Johnson, Houston Texans

Andre Johnson is averaging 90.5 yards and 0.3 touchdowns per game. He had eight catches for 76 yards in the first meeting with the Tennessee Titans. If he can manage 142 yards Johnson will have his fourth season with 1,500 yards.

 

14. Calvin Johnson, Detroit Lions

Calvin Johnson is dealing with knee and ankle injuries that have held him to a 64.3 yard average in his past three games without a score. He'd occupy the top spot against the Minnesota Vikings if he were healthy. The Vikes have allowed 294.4 yards and 2.4 touchdowns per game. Megatron is as likely to get 40 yards as he is to get 140 yards. He's very unpredictable this week.

 

15. Vincent Jackson, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Vincent Jackson is averaging 79.3 yards and 0.5 touchdowns per game. He had 77 yards in the first meeting against the New Orleans Saints.

 

16. Marques Colston, New Orleans Saints

17. Jordy Nelson, Green Bay Packers

Jordy Nelson is averaging 76.9 yards and 0.5 touchdowns. He wraps the season up against the Chicago Bears. The Bears have allowed 1.5 touchdowns per game.

 

18. Torrey Smith, Baltimore Ravens

20. Danny Amendola, New England Patriots

Danny Amendola caught 10 passes for 104 yards in the first meeting with the Bills. He should close the season on a high note.
