2010 Fantasy Football Rankings: Wide Receivers 81-100



These 2010 Fantasy Football Wide Receivers Rankings will be updated often throughout the summer, so make sure you check back from time to time. Also, be sure to check out my other 2010 Fantasy Football articles, which will include sleepers, busts, tons of 2010 Fantasy Football mock drafts and other material.


2010 Fantasy Football Rankings - Wide Receivers (Sept. 7):
Top 10 | 11-20 | 21-40 | 41-60 | 61-80 | 81-100


  1. T.J. Houshmandzadeh, WR, Ravens. Bye: 5.
    SEPT. 7 UPDATE: T.J. Houshmandzadeh signed with the Ravens. He gets an up arrow because he's relevant again, but he's still someone to stay away from. Old and injured (sports hernia surgery), Houshmandzadeh is Joe Flacco's No. 5 option in Baltimore's offense.

    SEPT. 5 UPDATE: T.J. Houshmandzadeh has been released. This shouldn't have affected any fantasy owner because Houshmandzadeh stinks and shouldn't have been drafted at all. Don't pick him up in the later rounds thinking he's going to contribute somewhere else. He's not. He's done.

    PREVIOUS UPDATE: T.J. Houshmandzadeh, 33 in late September, is coming off a down year (79 catches, 911 yards, 3 TDs). He also has to deal with a quarterback in rapid decline and another signal-caller who has never started a game before. What really hurts is that Houshmandzadeh had serious sports hernia surgery in April - a major red flag because sports hernias tend to resurface. I would completely avoid him.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 35 catches. 500 yards. 3 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 68.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 103.

  2. Patrick Crayton, WR, Chargers. Bye: 10.
    Patrick Crayton was traded to the Chargers. He'll be the No. 3 receiver behind Malcom Floyd and Legedu Naanee. Don't draft him.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 35 catches. 500 yards. 3 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 68.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 103.

  3. Michael Jenkins, WR, Falcons. Bye: 8.
    Michael Jenkins' reception totals the past three seasons: 53, 50 and 50. At least he's consistent. It's rather disappointing that Jenkins has never been able to evolve into a solid No. 2 in Atlanta's high-powered offense.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 43 catches. 550 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 67.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 110.

  4. Sidney Rice, WR, Vikings. Bye: 4.
    AUG. 26 UPDATE: The Minneapolis Star-Tribune is reporting that Sidney Rice will be on crutches for eight weeks in the wake of his hip surgery. This is discouraging for anyone who hoped Rice would be ready prior to November. His likely return will be around Thanksgiving, and even then he might not be the same guy who dominated in 2009.

    AUG. 25 UPDATE: Sidney Rice has in fact gone through hip surgery and will be out for half the year. This is obviously a major blow to anyone who drafted him, as Rice is now a Round 11-14 flier whom some might stash on the bench for a playoff run. Keep in mind though that even if Rice comes back in Week 9 or 10, he might not be the same dominant receiver he was in 2009.

    AUG. 24 UPDATE: The Minneapolis Star-Tribune is reporting that Sidney Rice could be out for half the year because he needs hip surgery. I'm not going to knock him down much in my rankings until we know for the sure; just keep this in mind if you plan on drafting him.

    AUG. 21 UPDATE: Sidney Rice tested his hip out on Friday, and things didn't go very well. Rice admitted that he could miss the season opener.

    PREVIOUS UPDATE: Sidney Rice didn't do much the first two weeks of the season, but was still able to finish with 1,312 yards and eight touchdowns. His value obviously hinges on Brett Favre's health - which is no given at age 41.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 30 catches. 475 yards. 3 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 65.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 95.

  5. Antonio Bryant, WR, Bengals. Bye: 6.
    JULY 30 UPDATE: This isn't a surprise or anything, but Antonio Bryant had trouble planting and cutting on his left leg during practice yesterday. He's someone to avoid unless you're in an ultra deep league.

    JULY 28 UPDATE: Antonio Bryant's knee hasn't healed, prompting the Bengals to sign Terrell Owens. Bryant won't be placed on the PUP list per reports, but he'll be relegated to slot duties. His fantasy value is shot.

    PREVIOUS UPDATE: Antonio Bryant is two years removed from 83 receptions, 1,248 yards and six touchdowns. Eager fantasy players looking for Bryant to duplicate those stats will likely be disappointed; Bryant is a lazy bum who has never tried hard after signing a contract. Carson Palmer's health is also in doubt.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 40 catches. 520 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 64.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 104.

  6. Justin Gage, WR, Titans. Bye: 9.
    Justin Gage missed four games last year, totaling just 28 receptions, 383 yards and three touchdowns. He'll have to hold of Damian Williams as the No. 3 wideout.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 32 catches. 450 yards. 3 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 63.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 95.

  7. Deion Branch, WR, Seahawks. Bye: 5.
    Deion Branch had a throwaway year, save for the final four weeks of the season. In those contests, he caught 20 balls for 191 yards. But before you get excited, note that Branch turns 31 in July and underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in April. This guy has just never been able to stay healthy.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 43 catches. 425 yards. 3 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 60.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 103.

  8. Chaz Schilens, WR, Raiders. Bye: 10.
    AUG. 24 UPDATE: Tom Cable told the media that Chaz Schilens may need knee surgery. The severity of the surgery is unknown, but you don't want any part of Schilens right now.

    PREVIOUS UPDATE: I liked Chaz Schilens as a late-round sleeper last year, but he suffered an injury in the preseason and didn't play until Week 10. Schilens had 29 catches for 365 yards and two touchdowns in eight games. He's coming off foot surgery, but if he's OK, he should be able to post solid numbers. Schilens is a talented wideout and will really benefit from Oakland's upgrade at quarterback.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 37 catches. 475 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 59.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 96.

  9. Harry Douglas, WR, Falcons. Bye: 8.
    A talented slot receiver, Harry Douglas tore his ACL in August 2009 and missed the entire season. Having 12 months of recovery time should allow Douglas to play near 100 percent this year. Still, he's not much of a fantasy factor.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 34 catches. 460 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 58.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 92.



  10. Donte' Stallworth, WR, Ravens. Bye: 8.
    After a year off from football, Donte' Stallworth returns as Baltimore's slot receiver. I wouldn't draft him, but I'd suggest picking him up if either Anquan Boldin or Derrick Mason gets injured.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 32 catches. 450 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 57.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 89.

  11. Malcolm Kelly, WR, Redskins. Bye: 9.
    Malcolm Kelly caught nine passes for 134 yards in the final two weeks of the 2009 season. Like Devin Thomas, Kelly is a candidate to have a breakout year. His biggest concern is staying healthy.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 38 catches. 440 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 56.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 94.

  12. Antwaan Randle El, WR, Steelers. Bye: 5.
    Antwaan Randle El is Pittsburgh's slot receiver unless Emmanuel Sanders can take over as a rookie, which is unlikely. Regardless, Randle El is not a fantasy option.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 35 catches. 425 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 54.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 89.



  13. Darrius Heyward-Bey, WR, Raiders. Bye: 10.
    JUNE 11 UPDATE: It's hard to believe because he was so terrible last season, but Darrius Heyward-Bey apparently has been the star of Oakland's minicamps. Heyward-Bey will always look good in shorts though; it's his terrible hands and route running that plague him. I need to see him produce in live preseason action before I can seriously consider upgrading his projected fantasy numbers.

    PREVIOUS UPDATE: Like Darren McFadden, Darrius Heyward-Bey could be in the starting lineup at the beginning of the season over a more talented player (Louis Murphy). Heyward-Bey stinks, and it's only a matter of time before he's benched for good.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 29 catches. 400 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 52.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 81.

  14. Devin Thomas, WR, Redskins. Bye: 9.
    AUG. 10 UPDATE: Per Washington's most recent depth chart, Devin Thomas is a third-stringer, listed behind Joey Galloway and Roydell Williams as a split end. It's pretty alarming that Thomas hasn't been able to move past a decrepit veteran and a journeyman by now.

    PREVIOUS UPDATE: Devin Thomas is a potential 2010 fantasy sleeper. He only had 325 yards and three touchdowns last year, but he accumulated 18 receptions, 254 yards and two scores in his final five full games of the season. Stability on the sidelines and at quarterback can only help Thomas' cause.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 26 catches. 400 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 52.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 78.

  15. Demaryius Thomas, WR, Broncos. Bye: 9.
    AUG. 26 UPDATE: Demaryius Thomas is snake-bitten. He has re-injured his ankle. It was first feared that he suffered a stress fracture, but the MRI came back negative. Unfortunately, Broncos TV announcer Vic Lombardi is reporting that a screw in Thomas' ankle may have come loose, which would mean more surgery. Thomas is nearly undraftable at this point.

    AUG. 14 UPDATE: Demaryius Thomas continues to miss time with his fractured foot. As with Dez Bryant, this wouldn't be a big deal if Thomas were a veteran, but the missed reps will severely eat into his 2010 production.

    PREVIOUS UPDATE: Demaryius Thomas can't run routes or catch the ball consistently, but does that really matter in Josh McDaniels' offense? McDaniels will utilize Thomas like he used Brandon Marshall in Weeks 1-16 and Jabar Gaffney in the final game of the season - and Gaffney caught 14 balls for 213 yards in the finale. Assuming McDaniels doesn't sour on Thomas - and with Josh "I'm Josh f***ing McDaniels" McDaniels there are no guarantees - Thomas could have a prolific rookie year.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 20 catches. 350 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 47.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 67.

  16. Brandon Gibson, WR, Rams. Bye: 9.
    Brandon Gibson played somewhat well for the Rams after coming over in a mid-season trade from Philadelphia. In nine games, Gibson had 31 catches for 330 yards and a touchdown. Even if Gibson's skills drastically improve and he can beat out Laurent Robinson to be a starting receiver, he still has to deal with the fact that he has a raw rookie quarterback throwing him the football.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 38 catches. 410 yards. 1 total TD.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 47.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 85.



  17. James Hardy, WR, Bills. Bye: 6.
    James Hardy is currently the No. 2 receiver in Buffalo. That may change, but it's largely irrelevant. You don't want any Bills wideout aside from Lee Evans.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 30 catches. 350 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 47.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 77.

  18. Roy Williams, WR, Cowboys. Bye: 4.
    In Roy Williams' final five games of the 2009 season (including the two playoff contests), he caught seven passes for 77 yards and a touchdown. Williams was already being faded out of Dallas' offense, so now he's going to be completely irrelevant with Dez Bryant on the roster.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 20 catches. 325 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 44.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 64.

  19. Jarett Dillard, WR, Jaguars. Bye: 9.
    Another second-year Jacksonville receiver, Jarett Dillard had only six receptions for 106 yards in 2009. He'll probably be in the slot this season.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 36 catches. 350 yards. 1 total TD.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 41.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 77.

  20. Jordan Shipley, WR, Bengals. Bye: 6.
    Jordan Shipley and Andre Caldwell will battle for the slot receiver job this year. I believe Shipley will win the competition because Caldwell isn't very good. If Shipley becomes the full-time slot receiver, he'll be a decent backup in deeper PPR leagues.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 30 catches. 275 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 39.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 69.

  21. Devery Henderson, WR, Saints. Bye: 10.
    Devery Henderson underwent surgery for a sports hernia in early May, which is a major red flag. Left tackle Jammal Brown had the same issue and missed the entire year. Avoid Henderson at all costs.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 15 catches. 250 yards. 2 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 37.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 52.

  22. Mardy Gilyard, WR, Rams. Bye: 9.
    Mardy Gilyard is worth selecting in keeper leagues, but he probably won't be much of a factor as a rookie. If the fact that he has a raw rookie quarterback wasn't enough, he'll miss a big portion of the OTAs because he won't graduate from Cincinnati until mid-June. Shame on the NFL for having such a stupid rule.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 21 catches. 275 yards. 1 total TD.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 33.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 54.

  23. Dwayne Jarrett, WR, Panthers. Bye: 6.
    Dwayne Jarrett has apparently fallen behind Brandon LaFell on the depth chart. So much for that great finish in 2009. Perhaps Jarrett should have, I don't know, come to training camp in shape. Crazy concept, right?

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 20 catches. 250 yards. 1 total TD.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 31.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 51.

  24. Torry Holt, WR, Patriots. Bye: 5.
    JUNE 23 UPDATE: With Brandon Tate running with the first team in minicamps, Torry Holt has been practicing with the second team. If Holt can't beat out Tate, his career is officially over. Don't pay attention to him during your fantasy draft.

    PREVIOUS UPDATE: If Torry Holt can't rebound with the Patriots, he should just retire. Holt has really struggled the past two seasons, but this is his best chance to prove that he still has it.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 10 catches. 130 yards. 1 total TD.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 19.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 29.

  25. Andre Roberts, WR, Cardinals. Bye: 6.
    I love Andre Roberts as a long-term fantasy and real-life sleeper. He barely dropped any balls in college and he's a prolific route-runner. Unfortunately, Ken Whisenhunt typically doesn't play rookies. And even if he did, Matt Leinart's the quarterback. Draft Roberts in your keeper leagues.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 15 catches. 180 yards. 0 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 18.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 33.

  26. Donnie Avery, WR, Rams. Bye: 9.
    Donnie Avery suffered a season-ending knee injury at the end of the first half at New England. It was really UGLY. Avery's knee buckled, prompting Patriots color commentator Randy Cross to say, "Your leg's not supposed to wobble like that." Avery is just snake-bitten. He can't stay healthy, which is a shame because he's very talented.

    Projected 2010 Fantasy Stats: 0 catches. 0 yards. 0 total TDs.
    Projected 2010 Fantasy Points: 0.
    Projected 2010 PPR Fantasy Points: 0.
