The Week 7 WR Rankings are pretty loaded once again, and it seems like you might have some tough decisions to make for either your third wide receiver or your flex position with this week’s matchups.
Last week, we shared some interesting numbers that affected Fantasy wide receivers and it seemed to go over pretty well.
We pointed out how T.Y. Hilton was fifth in targets despite the love he was receiving in most sets of Fantasy rankings.
We mentioned how rookie WR Brandin Cooks was catching over 78 percent of the targets thrown to him by Drew Brees, and now he’s coming off a bye week for a tough matchup against the best pass defenses in the NFL (Detroit).
So I thought I’d do something similar with the WR rankings this week.
Numbers to Note for Wide Receivers
39.80 – Fantasy points Terrance Williams has scored over the past three weeks, which ranks him 10th among wide receivers.
34 – Trade value assigned to Jordy Nelson by CBSSports.com’s Dave Richard in his Trade Values Chart this week. Nelson is tied with Demaryius Thomas, Antonio Brown, Marshawn Lynch and Peyton Manning as the third-most valuable trade commodities in Fantasy Football, just behind DeMarco Murray (37) and Matt Forte (35).
32 –– The strength of schedule rank for Colts’ wide receivers during Weeks 6-10, which sounds bad for Reggie Wayne and T.Y. Hilton.
31 – Fantasy points allowed per game to wide receivers by the Buccaneers this season, although, they’re on a bye week right now.
17.02 – Yards per catch allowed to wide receivers this season by the Falcons – highest in the NFL. This should be another good week for both Torrey Smith and Steve Smith.
7 – Wide receivers taken in the first two rounds of the Week 7 ADP for Fan vs. Machine drafts at SKYLLZONE.com.
7 – Where Calvin Johnson is ranked in the “Rest of Season” Consensus WR Rankings on FantasyPros.com.
1 – The strength of schedule rank for Bills’ wide receivers during Weeks 6-10, which sounds good for Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods.
