    A big game from a wide receiver can take your fantasy football team over the top. These Week 6 rankings try to settle the burning questions at wide receiver this week:

    Who deserves to start in all formats this week?

    Where are the sleepers at wide receiver this week?

    How will the normal high-value players fare?

    I will help you get over the hump in the NFL's Week 6. 

No. 10a: Kenny Britt, Tennessee Titans

    Jacksonville gives up 280 yards per game passing.

    That is ranked 29th of 32 NFL pass defenses.

    Britt has scored in each of the last two ball games.

    Vince Young trusts him and he delivers.

    Yahoo! priority scoring leagues suit Britt for now.

No. 10b: DeSean Jackson, Philadelphia Eagles

    Atlanta's pass defense is vulnerable deep.

    Kolb and Jackson connect on deep and intermediate routes. formats especially suit Jackson because of his threat in the return game.

    Imagine him doing the Dougie against the ATL?

No. 9: Mike Wallace, Pittsburgh Steelers

3 of 11

    He is a must-start in all formats this week.

    A reliable deep threat.

    A bomb could be coming his way early from Big Ben.

No. 8: Braylon Edwards, New York Jets

4 of 11

    The Broncos pass defense ranks mediocre in the NFL stat books.

    Edwards and his QB have a nice chemistry going.

    Yahoo! priority scoring and formats are best for Braylon.

No. 7: Hines Ward, Pittsburgh Steelers

5 of 11

    Cleveland's pass defense will be target practice in this game.

    Likewise for its run defense.

    The Browns could very well be shutout by the Steelers defense.

    Pittsburgh's offense will provide ample value in all formats for Ward.

No. 6: Hakeem Nicks, New York Giants

6 of 11

    Detroit is ranked around 25th of 32 NFL pass defenses going into this week.

    Don't expect that number to get better.

    Last week Nicks had 12 receptions and two scores against Houston.

    Nicks is high value in all formats.

No. 5: Dwayne Bowe, Kansas City Chiefs

7 of 11

    He faces the Houston Texans pass defense.

    Ranked number 32 of 32 NFL teams, the Texans have opponents standing in line.

    PPR, and Yahoo! scoring valued league owners should start Bowe.

No. 4: Malcom Floyd, San Diego Chargers

8 of 11

    Jim McIsaac/Getty Images

    Floyd has been the top quick-strike threat for Philip Rivers.

    The Chargers will explode on the 22nd ranked Rams pass defense.

    Start him in all formats.

No. 3: Andre Johnson, Houston Texans

9 of 11

    Chris Graythen/Getty Images

    The young Kansas City pass defense is ranked 25th in the NFL.

    Johnson is a stud in all formats this week.

No. 2: Anquan Boldin, Baltimore Ravens

10 of 11

    The Patriot pass defense is the worst part of their team, statistically.

    270 yards given up per game is not healthy.

    But it is a bad habit New England cannot break.

    They deserve to be ranked 28 of 32 in passing defense.

    Bolden will break them off properly with a big game.

No. 1: Reggie Wayne, Indianapolis Colts

11 of 11

    Joe Robbins/Getty Images

    Manning against the woeful Redskins pass defense.

    The stuff NFL records are made of. 

    Bank on Reggie to get loose for a dime and a deuce.

    Fantasy value is at least 10 points in all formats.

    PPR and formats will see his highest value.
