These rankings are for seasonal/redraft leagues and will be updated frequently during the offseason.
1) Larry Fitzgerald (Arizona Cardinals) – You could put Andre Johnson or Fitzgerald here; it is going to depend on the scoring system. Fitzgerald is consistently a 10-plus touchdown player, while Johnson has never had more than nine in a single season. Johnson has more receptions and yards, which are valuable in PPR leagues. We will rethink the ranking if QB Kurt Warner retires.
2) Andre Johnson (Houston Texans) – If he is going to be the clear-cut best fantasy player, he needs to score more touchdowns consistently. He only scored touchdowns in six of his 16 games this year, which is not good enough to be No. 1.
3) Reggie Wayne (Indianapolis Colts) – As consistent of a wide receiver as you will find. You can depend on him for 90 catches, 1,200 yards and eight to 10 touchdowns every season.
4) Randy Moss (New England Patriots) – I did not like how the season ended. No 100-yard games in his last seven. Six of seven games with either one touchdown or none. Something seemed wrong in New England at the end of the year, and you hope it does not carry over to next year...
