    Top 10 Wide Receivers
    December 15, 2009 – Dr. Crackback
    1. An[​IMG]dre Johnson

    Andre is a fantasy monster. He’s a physical freak with vacuum-like hands and great speed. He’s such an explosive player that if your losing by 38 and you only have him left on Monday Night, you still have a chance. He’s plays as a possession receiver and a deep threat. He’ll run someone over after a catch, and he’s the go to guy in the red zone. His ability is seemingly unlimited, and with one of the best young QBs throwing him the ball, he’s as good as it gets. All of this and no ones ever heard him talk.
    2. La[​IMG]rry Fitzgerald

    Larry gets the media hype and rightfully so. He’s arguably the best player in football and he may as well have the best hands. His massive frame and leaping ability make him the top red zone threat in football. If he didn’t line up opposite Boldin and there weren’t questions about his aging quarterback each year, he probably be interchangeable with Andre. And he still might be. No one would fault you for making him the first receiver off the board, and if your league awards points for[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a7nRz7DiRAg"] catching random falling objects in an office[/ame], even better.
    3. [​IMG]Brandon Marshall

    B-Marsh is phenomenal. Off the field issues aside, he’s a quarterbacks dream. Hes big, he’s a great route runner, he’s fast, and runs well after the catch. Marshall will get his points no matter who is throwing him the ball, and now that he’s been paid, his heads in the right place. He hauled in 18 passes in a single game in ‘08 and 21 in one in ‘09. He can single-handedly win you a game, and he’s only getting better.
    4. Re[​IMG]ggie Wayne

    No wants wants to play against Reggie. As the number 1 target of the best quarterback in the game, he makes for a miserable match up. He’s big, he’s physical, and has great hands. Peyton loves to find him deep, but he’ll also rack up receptions underneath. He’s as safe a receiver as there is and he’s one of the few elite choices. He and Peyton only seem to get better with age, and who knows if they’ll ever lose another game.
    5. R[​IMG]andy Moss

    Moss and Brady have shown glimpses of their ‘07 selves this year, but overall it’s been a work in progress. Regardless, Randy still remains one of the best deep threats in the game. At any point in time, Randy can go off for 3 TDs and 150 yards. That can’t be said for many others. His athleticism is second to none, even in his 30’s. It’s only his attitude that anyone questions, but he has the right people around him to keep him focused. He’ll bounce back this year and be right back in the fold as a top receiver again next year.

    6. De

    Sean Jackson

    Probably the most electric player in the NFL. He has soft hands, he’s incredibly shifty, and he can fly. If he has the ball in space, he’s probably going to score. If your playing against him, you just have to hope he freaks out at the goal line and spikes the ball too early. DeSean is just entering his prime and the Eagles will continue to get him the ball on punts, kick-offs, runs, passes, punt passes, run-kicks, pass-offs, you name it. With 8 TDs over 50 yards, you can’t call him a fluke, he really is that explosive.

    7. We[​IMG]s Welker

    The blue collar “backyard football player”, says a Carolina DB. I can see that. Welker is a PPR monster. He’s fast, he’s quick, he’s sure handed, and he’s not afraid to get hit. Brady has become so reliant on him over the middle, 1o receptions a game is like clockwork. The touchdowns haven’t been there with Welker as he’s strictly a possession guy, but you’d be hard pressed to find a more consistent pass catcher. He’s had at least 9 receptions in 8 different games this year. The stingy Patriots will be back at it in 2010, and Welker will again be a major factor.

    8. Ro[​IMG]ddy White

    Roddy has flown a bit under the radar this year, but he’s actually just second to Andre in overall targets. He has great hands and he can fly. His 8 TDs lead his team and he’s putting solid up numbers even with Chris Redman at the helm. With a healthy and smoothly shaved Matt Ryan back in the fold in 2010, White should be primed for another top 10 season.

    9. C[​IMG]alvin Johnson

    Calvin has been a disappointment in ‘09, but it’s difficult to develop a rapport with a rookie QB that can’t avoid the injury bug. The Lions offense has looked decent at times, and with a year under Stafford’s belt, and a summer to train with CJ, things will get better. Calvin is still just 24 and he’s widely considered the best physical specimen at the WR position. He’s the total package and his quarterback should figure that out by 2010. If the Lions make any progress it wouldn’t surprise anyone if Calvin finished in the top 5.
    10. [​IMG]Marques Colston

    Colston is the premier option on the most potent passing offense in football. His enormous hands and ideal frame make him Brees’ favorite Red Zone target, and his 9 TDs would agree. His reception numbers are down a bit this season as Brees has been spreading it around, but Colston has still been adequate. In years past, Marques has made a living racking up big catches late in games, but with an undefeated record, the Saints are rarely playing catchup in the 4th quarter. And not that New Orleans will lose many games next year, but Colston should bounce back with more opportunities and better numbers in 2010.
