Fantasy Football WRs: The Final Big Board

New, 15 comments

I used a similar format for ranking the WRs, but simply tweaked the criteria a little. I'm not going to do the QBs, TEs, Def or Kickers. There seems to be a level of consistency with regards to consistently good or consistently shitty and most of you know what you're getting. You're guess is as good as mine. Here's the WR criteria:

Over 10 Points - consistency was again the most heavily weighted factor; this number was derived by dividing the number of games over 10 fps in 2007 by the number of games played; I'll post the consistency percentage as well

Health - same as RBs

Targets - plus 1 for over 130 targets; 0 pts for 100-129 targets; -1 for 80-99 targets; -2 for less than 80 targets; you have to get the ball thrown to you first

Catches - plus 3 for over 95; plus 2 for over 80; plus 1 for over 70; 0 for less than 70 (this might help guys in Gay Leagues)

#1 WR on Team - plus 2 for being option #1, plus 1 for being option #2, and 0 for #3s or higher

Breakout Bonus - 1 pt bonus for guys who could blow up after a very promising year; they include Brandon Marshall, Roddy White; Calvin Johnson; Patrick Crayton; and Dwayne Bowe

QB - plus 2 for having a stud throwing to you; plus 1 for a good QB; 0 for an average QB; -1 for a below average QB; -2 for having Tavaris Jackson

Over 10 TDs - plus 1

Over 12 TDs - plus 1

Over 15 TDs - plus 1

There weren't any real surprises at the top. These are not fantasy point per game projections, but more of just a power rating number or grade. Without further ado, here's the best ranking to piss away $150:

1. Randy Moss - 25.0, 81.3% (multiply this number by 16 to determine the number of games player generated 10 or more fantasy points)

2. Terrell Owens - 22.7, 73.3%

3. Braylon Edwards - 20.0, 68.8%

4. Andre Johson - 19.4, 77.8%; received -2 for health

5. Reggie Wayne - 19.0, 56.3%

6. Larry Fitzgerald - 18.7, 66.7%

7. Marques Colston - 18.0, 56.3%

8. T.J. Houshmandzadeh - 16.0, 56.3%; -3 for health

9. Brandon Marshall - 15.0, 50.0%; -2 for suspension

10. Greg Jennings - 14.3, 76.9%; received a -2 for health, -1 deduction for targets, and -1 for new starter at QB; this guy might be a sleeper; 3rd highest consistency rating behind Moss and A. Johnson; TD maker

11. Plaxico Burress - 14.0, 56.3%; another dude who scores TDs before we get to our first white guy

12. Wes Welker - 14.0, 43.8%

13. Anquan Boldin - 13.7, 41.7%

14. Santonio Holmes - 13.6, 53.8%

15. Jerricho Cotchery - 12.3, 33.3%

16. Torry Holt - 12.0, 43.8%; 2 pt health deduction or would crack the top 12

17. Roddy White - 12.0, 43.8%; this guy kicked ass with Chris Redman throwing him the ball; read that sentence again

18. Nate Burleson - 12.0, 43.8%; Hasselback has a way of making WRs better than they are; see Darrell Jackson

19. Steve Smith - 11.3, 33.3%; severely inconsistent for as high as everyone drafts him

20. Derrick Mason - 11.0, 37.5%; dude catches everything

21. Roy Williams - 10.3, 33.3%; big talent, but sometimes forgets he's not playing Odessa High and they may need to call a pass play

22. Chad Johnson - 10.0, 37.5%; 3 pt health deduction; see Steve Smith; already has trouble beating press coverage, shoulder injury should help

23. Shaun McDonald - 10.0, 50.0%; I would take Calvin Johnson here before him, but this is where he landed; consistency rating was up there with some of the top guys

24. Calvin Johnson - 9.3, 33.3%; that's a damn good consistency rate for a rookie; he might be the best Lion WR to take

25. Patrick Crayton - 9.2, 38.5%

26. Chris Chambers - 9.0, 37.5%

27. Laverneous Coles - 8.8, 30.0%

28. Dwayne Bowe - 8.0, 31.3%; another potential breakout guy

29. Bobby Engram - 7.0, 43.8%; was high on him before a 4 pt injury deduction; still, teammate Burleson graded out higher because of TDs

30. Hines Ward - 6.9, 30.8%; has career average of 6 catches for 31 yards per game; sometimes catches 2 yard TD passes

31. Donald Driver - 6.3, 26.7%

32. Kevin Curtis - 6.0, 25.0%; 4 pt health deduction and wildly inconsistent; good thing I drafted him

33. Reggie Williams - 5.5, 53.3%; 4 pt health deduction, 1 pt target deduction, and a bunch of fluke TDs

34. Lee Evans - 5.0, 31.3%; gets jammed by black men more frequently than Kim Kardashian

35. Joey Galloway - 4.4, 40.0%; Week 1 = 2 catches for 141 yards, 2 TDs; Weeks 2 thru 10 = 1 catch for 8 yards; serious lack of target issues

36. Santana Moss - 4.4, 21.4%; he rides the same breed of ponies as Lee Evans

37. Marvin Harrison - 3.2, 20.0%; a reminder to rest of the league that they're a knee injury away from operating a ferris wheel

38. Donte Stallworth - 2.3, 33.3%; the next Joey Galloway; health concerns

39. Bernard Berrian - 2.0, 31.3%; hurt right now; Hasselback would make him a pro bowler
