Fantasy Football Week 16 Wide Receiver Projections: Calvin Johnson Lives Up To Megatron

The final position projections for the 2011 fantasy season are in, see who you should be putting into your starting lineup.

Thursday Game: Houston Texans @ Indianapolis Colts

Two receivers have been big producers all year long in 2011, Calvin Johnson and Wes Welker. As expected, they top our projections for Week 16. Another good story in 2011 has been the return of Steve Smith. Now that Cam Newton is in Carolina, Smith is a top-tier wide receiver again. Victor Cruz and Jordy Nelson are two youngsters who are on the rise after sterling 2011 campaigns. Who else at wide receiver should you be playing in the final week?

Our partner, numberfire.com, has provided us with projections for 30 top-rated wide receivers in Week 16. They determine their projections by feeding the stats and matchups into the computer, and the computer responds with its best estimate.

These projections are live and may change before Sunday's action. Come back over the next few days until game time to see where your players stand.

* Fantasy Points Projections are based on the Yahoo! and ESPN default scoring settings. Quarterbacks are scored with 1 point for every 25 passing yards, and 4 points for every touchdown. For running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends, they are scored with 1 point for every 10 total yards, and 6 points for every touchdown. This is a non-PPR projection.
