The following is our 2012 fantasy football wide receiver rankings. These projections are based on the following scoring: 6 points for touchdowns, 0.5 for catches, 1 point for every 10 yards. As you will read, Calvin Johnson is by far in a way the #1 wide receiver this year and should be drafted as such. The Detroit Lions will be in a lot of shootouts and that means catches, yards, and of course, touchdowns for Megatron.
There are some unknowns in these rankings – will Wes Welker remain happy without an extension? Who will be the #1 guy in San Diego? Will Randy Moss take catches away from Crabtree? All of these questions remain to be answered, but we did our best to predict the future.
