2012 Fantasy Football Stock Report: Wide Receivers



May 8, 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

Justin Blackmon, WR, Jaguars
I listed Justin Blackmon in my 2012 Fantasy Football Top 100 Rankings prior to the 2012 NFL Draft because I thought he'd be Sam Bradford's No. 1 wideout. Blackmon, instead, will have to catch passes from a craven.

Plaxico Burress, WR, Free Agent
The Eagles were looking for a big receiver to help their anemic red-zone offense. They drafted Marvin McNutt, which makes it unlikely that they'll add Plaxico Burress - something that was rumored earlier in the offseason.



Larry Fitzgerald, WR, Cardinals
Larry Fitzgerald asked for Michael Floyd for a specific reason. With Floyd on the field, opposing teams won't be able to use as much bracket coverage on Fitzgerald, which will obviously help him post better numbers.

Brian Hartline, WR, Dolphins
Someone has to catch passes in Miami, and it appears as though Brian Hartline has a really good chance to lead the team in receiving yards because the front office didn't draft a wideout in the first five rounds.



Percy Harvin, WR, Vikings
Matt Kalil was the right pick. He'll protect Christian Ponder, who will have more time in the pocket to locate Percy Harvin. Harvin could have a big 2012 campaign if he can stay healthy.

Calvin Johnson, WR, Lions
Draft Megatron at your own risk. Calvin Johnson is the newest cover boy of the Madden franchise. Peyton Hillis' 2011 campaign was derailed by the Madden Curse, and there's a chance that Megatron will suffer some sort of untimely injury.

Greg Little, WR, Browns
The Browns wanted to draft Kendall Wright, but the Titans snatched him two picks earlier. Cleveland didn't end up with anyone who could challenge Greg Little's claim as the No. 1 wideout. Add in the upgrade at quarterback, and Little could end up being a borderline WR3.



Ricardo Lockette, WR, Seahawks
The Seahawks didn't draft a receiver. Perhaps they didn't like anyone at the position. Or perhaps they have major faith in the second-year Ricardo Lockette, a receiver with major upside. If Matt Flynn pans out and Sidney Rice gets hurt again, Lockette could surprise. He's worth a very late-round pick in your fantasy league.

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

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 ?
