You show those pearly whites Roddy
Now top WR does not have a clear cut winner. Do we put more wait on touchdowns, consistent performance, yardage total, or a combination of all? You have to go with the combo platter on this one.
For that reason, the award goes to Roddy White.
White put on a show each week. He started out hot and kept it going throughout the season. You could put White in each week and know he would produce for you. That is what it takes to be the top fantasy wide-out in the NFL.
Roddy is Matt Ryan's favorite target. This gives White owners confidence knowing that Ryan is going to be looking Roddy's way each week. He is a guy you can put in your line up each week and know that he will get enough looks to be fantasy-relevant.
Also in consideration for this award were Greg Jennings, Calvin Johnson, Dwayne Bowe and Brandon Lloyd. Each had phenomenal seasons, but each came with a little bit of baggage.
Jennings started out slow and continued to give owners the sour taste in their mouth that they had from his 2009 campaign.
Johnson is a complete freak and proved he could produce with Betty White, I mean Drew Stanton, throwing him the football. But there were still some weeks when Megatron disappeared.
Bowe had one of the greatest stretches in the history of the NFL when he brought in 13 TDs in six weeks, but he still put up one too many goose eggs.
Brandon Lloyd burst on the scene and was a waiver-wire steal, but as Orton began his yearly end of the season slide, Lloyd was the most affected.
That is why Roddy White gets the nod over these other elite wide-outs. He produced consistently and gave owners a sense of confidence that regardless of who was on him, he would find a way to come up big.
