2012 Fantasy Football Stock Report: Wide Receivers



April 2, 2012

There will be many more 2012 Fantasy Football Rankings and features in the late spring and summer, including tons of 2012 Fantasy Football Mock Drafts, Player Rankings, Sleepers and Busts. I'll also have an extensive 2012 NFL Fantasy Football Preseason Stock Report.



2012 Fantasy Football Stock Report: Wide Receivers

Eric Decker, WR, Broncos
This is fairly obvious. Eric Decker goes from Tim Tebow to Peyton Manning as his quarterback. Manning has transformed mediocre talents like Austin Collie into fantasy studs, so Decker could emerge as a WR3.

Malcom Floyd, WR, Chargers
Malcom Floyd ascends to San Diego's No. 1 receiver in the wake of Vincent Jackson's signing with the Buccaneers. Floyd has proven that he can post big numbers as Rivers' top downfield target, so he could be in for a huge 2012 campaign.

Pierre Garcon, WR, Redskins
Pierre Garcon may not be a No. 1 receiver, but he found the perfect landing spot in free agency. His speed and Robert Griffin's deep accuracy figures to be a great combination.



DeSean Jackson, WR, Eagles
DeSean Jackson finally received the big contract he's been coveting, so maybe he'll actually try in 2012. Even if he doesn't give 100 percent, he's in a better position than he would have been if he signed with, say, the 49ers.

Vincent Jackson, WR, Buccaneers
If you're looking to have the best career possible as a wide receiver, why would you leave Philip Rivers and pair with someone like Josh Freeman? Freeman isn't a bad quarterback by any means, but he's not nearly as talented as Rivers. Jackson is a likely free-agent flop.

Brandon Lloyd, WR, Patriots
Where as Vincent Jackson took the money for a downgrade from Philip Rivers to Josh Freeman, Brandon Lloyd settled for less so he could upgrade from Sam Bradford to Tom Brady. Lloyd knows Josh McDaniels' offense, so it'll be an easy transition for him.



Mario Manningham, WR, 49ers
Mario Manningham didn't chase money because his contract isn't worth that much. However, he has a drastic downgrade at quarterback to deal with, much like Vincent Jackson. Going from Eli Manning to Alex Smith won't be lucrative for Manningham's fantasy value.

Brandon Marshall, WR, Bears
Think Brandon Marshall was happy to hear about the Miami-to-Chicago trade? In two seasons with Jay Cutler as his quarterback, Marshall has caught 206 passes for 2,590 yards and 13 touchdowns. Compare that to his two years as a Dolphin: 167 receptions, 2,228 yards and nine scores.

Robert Meachem, WR, Chargers
Robert Meachem isn't a very good receiver, but he'll have more opportunities to produce in San Diego. He'll be the clear-cut No. 2 wideout with the Chargers instead of rotating with Devery Henderson depending on the situation.



Sidney Rice, WR, Seahawks
People didn't like that I wrote that Sidney Rice took the money last year in free agency with complete disregard for his football career. Why play with Tarvaris Jackson or Charlie Whitehurst? Well, Seattle apparently has an upgrade at quarterback with Matt Flynn, though there are some skeptics out there. I'm not sure how good Flynn can be, but one thing is certain - there's no way in hell he's worse than "Tarvis Jaskon."

Laurent Robinson, WR, Jaguars
Hello, Blaine Gabbert. Goodbye, fantasy value.

Demaryius Thomas, WR, Broncos
Another obvious stock jump. Demaryius Thomas and Tim Tebow worked really well together, but there's no comparing Tebow and Peyton Manning.

I have to agree with AL.Thankfully I have a wife who is a good seamstress (and enjyos it!) so I have several scrub shirts with prints that aren't the typical male stuff (i.e., camo, fishing/hunting, etc..er. uh, wait, that's about it..sigh unless I want SpongeBob or something, which I would if I was on a peds unit). I have a black with hot peppers (kinda cool and different), a light blue with a sort of tiki pattern, a green junglescape with lizards and geckos, and a killer lightning pattern ala Metallica Ride The Lightning (minus the electric chair of course LOL). I opted against the skull-and-crossbones fabric of course, but look forward to having more custom-made scrubs. However this isn't available/possible for every guy (although my wife would gladly take orders LOL). Not to mention the fact that I don't think that last black one with the frilly edges and cinched bodice would be too terribly flattering on me GD Star Ratingloading...

the madden curse was mostly injuries, right. so with bounty gate gone, there will be less injuries. No bounty gate = no injuries

Keep beleiving in the Madden curse, and I'll grab megatron in the 7th round. Let's see which strategy works best.

If anyone has a chance to avoid The Curse, however, it is Calvin Johnson...The contract is already there and the team has other talent so he doesn't have the added injury risk of being the only target and taking the hit on EVERY passing down.

Even if a player isn't seriously injured, the Madden Curse can also strike as a holdout or sandbagging, as Hillis did in 2011. That Madden cover brings out the Diva in a player...Especiallyif they were a 1-yr wonder and are trying to lock down big money before they have a crappy season.

The Madden Curse is definitely (possibly) worth taking into consideration.

Nearly every player to pose on the cover of Madden has had a serious injury the following season, or a career worst season. One player that I can remember who didn't get seriously injured the following season was Ray Lewis, but he posted his worst season stats that year.

Keys to winning your fantasy league:
NEVER draft a running back who led the league in carries
NEVER draft a kicker before the last round
NEVER draft a player on the cover of Madden

I can't tell if you're being serious in downgrading Calvin Johnson because of the Madden cover... but if you are that's really dumb.

Freeman gets the best reciever he's ever had. VJax gets the worst QB he's ever had. That's how it works.

Freeman's stock goes UP by acquiring VJax, but VJax's stock goes DOWN by joining Freeman? How does that work?

A + B = C but
B + A = D ?
