WR Rankings for Week 12

While it's not the easiest matchup, I still say not only will Roddy White play well, but he will put up very good numbers. Worried about his back? Don't be. he practiced fully on Friday AND the rest of the work he missed was planned - more than anything they need their go-to guy to be healthy. He will be and he should be in your offense.

Anquan Boldin also faces a tough matchup, but again, no worries. He is a key target for Warner but you can't just double him up. If you do, Larry Fitzgerald and Steve Breaston will burn you down. Boldin makes the tough catches and will lay it all out there - to the tune of both yards and TDs.

Greg Jennings is one of those top WRs that isn't flashy or loud but gets the job done. Some scoff when I say he is underrated but outside of the diehard fantasy guys and Packer fans, Jennings' name does not come up often enough. Facing a shaky Saints secondary, Jennings will be able to play very well and as it is often a shootout when you see New Orleans on the field, he will have tons of opportunity to tear it up.

Now that Calvin Johnson appears to have QB who can get it to him and the team seems to have realized they can AND MUST get him the ball more often, he is on the cusp to becoming the fantastic WR we have been waiting to emerge from the cocoon of mediocrity that shrouds the franchise. Johnson can do tremendous things with few opportunities. Now he's getting more opportunities. The sky is the limit.

The Chargers secondary can play tough - they have been better the last few games. But they cannot get pressure on the quarterback and with Peyton Manning at the helm, that's not good. Reggie Wayne is the most consistent target in the WR core and will continue to be so as Harrison is showing his age and Anthony Gonzalez is showing his inexperiance and having a down season.
