The top-5 wide receivers

Postby mikus » Thu Aug 16, 2007 12:48 pm

I think the general consensus is that Steve Smith, Marvin Harrison, Chad Johnson, Torry Holt and Terrell Owens are the top-5 ranked fantasy wide receivers. How do you guys think they will finish in terms of production? Will all these guys end up in the top-5 (not likely)? If not, who will replace them?

I have them ranked like this going into the season:

Steve Smith
Chad Johnson
Marvin Harrison
Torry Holt
Terrell Owens

How would you rank them in a non-PPR league, 1 point per 10 yards and 6 points per TD?

I'd replace Harrison with Wayne. I think Harrison is just getting too old.

Holt
Smith
Harrison
Owens
Johnson

quick rank from the top of my head. The bubble would most likely consist of Fitz, Wayne, and Roy Williams.

2. Harrison
3. Owens
4. Holt
5a. Smith
5b. Wayne

I'm not quite as high on Smith as everyone else. To be honest though, you could put these 6 guys in any order and I wouldn't care.

Ya, WR's start to drop off around 30 ... Harrison is almost 35 and has put up a 1100+ yrds, 10+ TD season since 1999. He'll get it done IMO.

1. Harrison
2. S.Smith
3. T.O.
4. Chad
5. T.Holt

I really don't see how you can rank Chad Johnson the #1 WR overall until he improves his TD output. The most he ever had was 10 in 2003, and he only had 7 last year, two less than TJ Houshmandzadeh. He's top 5, but not #1 overall IMO.

I think the top 5 can reasonably be put in any order. I would be happy with any of the 5 as my WR1.

Smith
