The Fantasy Flavor Positional Power Rankings – Week 12 WRs

November 19, 2008 | Thyrl Nelson

Here are the Week 12 Fantasy Flavor Wide Receiver Power Rankings. There have been lots of shakeups in the hierarchies of several receiving corps this season, which now means that a few early round wide receivers like Tory Holt and Marques Colston are now taking back seats to guys likely gotten off of the waiver wire in most leagues. There are a lit more systems in which the #2 guy seems to be challenging the established #1 too, and of course a few groups too crowded to choose between. Make sure to check back tomorrow for the tight end, kicker and defense rankings too.

 

Keep in mind that the power rankings, listed here, are based on year to date performance and not a reflection of your best options for week 12. Just below the power rankings are match up previews advising who should be better or worse than usual this week, based on their opponents. At the bottom, are the week 12 start rankings, that’s where you should look for help with your week 12 lineup decisions.
