I’m back to cover the divas of the NFL, the wide receivers. They fill highlight reels and some fill stat sheets. Those are the fantasy studs and can be worth high picks. I’ll tell you who to hang your hat on this fantasy season. Let’s begin.
1. Calvin Johnson-“Megatron” is simply unstoppable. He’s big, strong, fast, and has excellent hands. He had almost 1,700 yards last year with 16 TDs. If Matthew Stafford stays healthy, Johnson is an easy top pick. At one point he was on pace to shatter the TD record last season, and could set a blistering pace once again. Draft him early, probably in the top 5 or 6.
2. Larry Fitzgerald-The QB situation in Arizona was a mess in 2011, but Fitzgerald still had 1,400 yards and 8 TDs. His ability is second to none and with a more stable situation under center, he could be even better in 2012. His ability to turn short gains into long TDs certainly helps his fantasy value, and he’ll go in the 1st round.
