2012 Fantasy Football Stock Report: Wide Receivers

Missing Include

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.
