Week 15 Fantasy Rankings: Wide Receivers

Ryan Lester@LestersLegendsSenior Writer IDecember 14, 2011

Here are the LestersLegends’ Week 15 2011 fantasy football wide receiver rankings.

1. Calvin Johnson at Oakland

Raiders have allowed 23 passing TDs. Megatron has one in his past five games. He’s due to break out. 

2. Hakeem Nicks vs. Washington

Nicks is healthy now and tearing secondaries apart.

3. Roddy White vs. Jacksonville

Has scored in three straight games.

4. Marques Colston at Minnesota

Got back on the TD board last week. Should have no problem torching the Vikings.

5. Percy Harvin vs. New Orleans

Remains on fire. Vikings doing a great job getting him the ball.

6. Victor Cruz vs. Washington

Didn’t score last week, but continued his breakout season with seven catches for 83 yards.

7. Dez Bryant at Tampa Bay

Four TDs in the past five games.

8. Wes Welker at Denver

26 catches in his past three games for 103.7 ypg average.

9. Jordy Nelson at Kansas City

No. 1 option for Rodgers with Jennings out.

10. Vincent Jackson vs. Baltimore

If his trend continues, it’s time for a big game for V-Jax.

11. Larry Fitzgerald vs. Cleveland

Tough matchup, but Fitz is money, especially if Skelton gets the start.

12. Miles Austin at Tampa Bay

Was able to score in his return. Good likelihood he can repeat against Tampa Bay.

13. Antonio Brown at San Francisco

He doesn’t score much but is averaging 94.7 yards in his past seven games.

14. A.J. Green at St. Louis

Continues to see a ton of targets and is a solid threat to score.

15. Mike Wallace at San Francisco

Hasn’t topped 70 yards since Week 7, but the potential for a monster game is there.

16. Brandon Marshall at Buffalo

Held to just one catch for five yards in the first meeting, he should do much better this time around.

17. Stevie Johnson vs. Miami

Averaging 81.0 yards the past three games with two TDs.

18. Dwayne Bowe vs. Green Bay

Packers struggle against the pass. Bowe should see plenty of looks as the Chiefs play from behind.

19. Laurent Robinson at Tampa Bay

He played hurt and he delivered. He’s a force and Romo looks to him even when everyone is healthy.

20. Steve Smith at Houston

Tough matchup, but Newton will get him the ball.

21. Mike Williams vs. Dallas

Quiet last week, but has been a solid WR2 the past few weeks.

22. Santonio Holmes at Philadelphia

Has scored in three straight games. Eagles have allowed 23 passing TDs.

23. Lance Moore at Minnesota

Vikings slow No. 1s and allow all others to go off, which works in Moore’s favor.

24. Julio Jones vs. Jacksonville

He score score like a WR1, but consistency limits him.

25. Brandon Lloyd vs. Cincinnati

Low-end WR2 thanks to his QB play.

26. Anquan Boldin at San Diego

Low ceiling. Has only topped 75 yards three times and only has three scores on the year.

27. Santana Moss at New York Giants

Played well against the Pats (of course). Caught six passes for 76 yards in the opener against the G-Men.

28. Nate Washington at Indianapolis

Assuming Locker gets the start, Nate should see a ton of looks.

29. James Jones at Kansas City

Could step up with Greg Jennings out.

30. Nate Burleson at Oakland

Titus Young stepped up last week, so it’s likely Nate’s turn.

31. Demaryius Thomas vs. New England

May not do much until the fourth quarter, but the Pats are dead last against the pass.

32. Jabar Gaffney at New York Giants

Averaging 93.0 yards in his past three games.

33. Michael Crabtree vs. Pittsburgh

Averaging 83.3 yards in his past four games.

34. Darrius Heyward-Bey vs. Detroit

Raiders are the walking wounded, so DHB becomes an option by default. He has been solid in six games this year, so it’s not like he’s a fluke.

35. DeSean Jackson vs. New York Jets

Showed a little something last week. Was it a fluke or will he try to continue to repair his reputation?

36. Mario Manningham vs. Washington

Scored in his return. Giants have a ton of weapons, though, so he’s a bit risky.

37. Pierre Garcon vs. Tennessee

Yardage wasn’t pretty (46), but he caught five passes last week.

38. Jeremy Maclin vs. New York Jets

Returned to action last week, but his hamstring and matchup make him a risk.

39. Johnny Knox vs. Seattle

Quiet last week, but remains the Bears’ top option in the passing game.

40. Reggie Wayne vs. Tennessee

Has 14 catches in his past three games.
