Updated Fantasy Football Rankings at Week 10: Top 80 WR's for the Rest of 2010

Injuries to Roddy White and Andre Johnson don’t stop them from remaining the top two ranked wide receivers for the rest of the year.

Both players have been extremely consistent all season when they’ve played, and there’s no reason to believe they both can’t continue to play at a high level even with some nagging injuries.

Roddy White had his biggest performance of the season on Thursday night after being listed as questionable all week, and Andre Johnson has already played through injuries this year and still been effective. Be cautious and pay attention to the injury reports, but both of these guys should be in every fantasy lineup no matter their opponent.

Hakeem Nicks continues to climb up the rankings, up to No. 3 after another big performance last week against the Seattle Seahawks, catching his ninth touchdown pass of the season in the Giants’ blowout win. Nicks is now on a streak of four of his past five games with 100+ yards receiving. This week he faces a Cowboys defense which he tore apart to the tune of 108 yards and two touchdowns the last time the two teams met in Week 7.

Although Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall hasn’t been terrible, his 2010 season has to be considered a pretty big flop for fantasy owners. The star receiver has caught at least four passes in every game this year but has only two games with over 75 yards receiving on the year and has only scored one touchdown.

Which deep-threat wide receiver will score the most points for the rest of the 2010 season?

A change at quarterback from Chad Henne to Chad Pennington could help Marshall, but we’ll have to see it before we believe it—Marshall drops four more spots this week, down to 11th among wide receivers for the rest of the season.

Another disappointing player this season has been Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin, who had his fourth game of the season with three-or-less fantasy points in the Cowboys’ Week 9 loss to the Packers. Austin certainly had better rapport with Tony Romo than he does with Jon Kitna, but Dez Bryant seems to be the better fantasy player as long as Kitna is under center.

We have to give Miles the benefit of the doubt, considering he did have a nice game against the Jaguars in Week 8, but he still falls five spots down to 15th among receivers. Dez Bryant, meanwhile, moves up three spots to 24th and could be in for a bigger jump this week if he does what he did the last time he faced the Giants.

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Sidney Rice has begun practicing with the team but has been ruled out for this weekend’s game against Chicago. He is expected to make his 2010 debut next week against Green Bay. Quarterback Brett Favre has expressed excitement regarding Rice’s return and if it’s anything like it was in 2009, Rice could be in for a huge rest of the season. Time will tell how healthy he is, but the Vikings have made sure not to rush him back too soon—he should be ready to go when he finally does step on the field.
