Check out our updated fantasy football rankings for wide receivers.
Here are my rankings for receivers in standard leagues:
Julio Jones- Julio looked like an absolute freak in his first preseason game. You have to pay a premium to get him and there's almost no way he'll go past the second round in any non-PPR league.
Hakeem Nicks- Nicks is back and off the PUP list. The Giants aerial attack should be one of the best in the league and Nicks has the upside to be fantasy's top receiver. Of course, there are the injury concerns with Nicks. His foot injury shouldn't linger, though.
Dez Bryant- The receiving options in Dallas are falling by the wayside. Miles Austin is dinged up and Jason Witten suffered a spleen injury. Dez should have a lot on his plate to start the season.
Larry Fitzgerald- The Arizona quarterback controversy doesn't help Fitzgerald at all. He's as safe as they come, but there just isn't enough upside here to take him over the eight guys above him.
Mike Wallace- If Wallace didn't have contract issues, it wouldn't be tough to make a case for him as a top-five WR. Todd Haley and Ben Roethelisberger should have big plans for the speedster. The injuries at running back should also force the Steelers' hand to throw even more.
Reggie Wayne and Austin Collie- Andrew Luck's performance against the Rams on Sunday brought a lot of attention to the Colts and how they might be fantasy relevant. Another solid outing from Luck could move Wayne and Collie up even further. They take on the Steelers on Sunday.
Brandon LaFell- LaFell's upside is extremely high. Although, you can probably him a little later than where I have him ranked. In other words, I'm reaching for him.
Chargers WRs- This is a mess. Vincent Brown, Malcom Floyd and Robert Meachem all have huge upside, but one or two of these guys could flop big time. Draft at your own risk. Antonio Gates could be a monster this season, by the way.
Titus Young- Young has been productive in camp and has all the makings to break out this year. He's a very popular sleeper.
Thanks for reading! I'll be back with another 20 or 30 guys for the deep leagues in the next few days.
