Top 10 Fantasy Football Wide Recievers

1. Steve Smith – Last season was a banner year for wide out Steve Smith. He established himself as the premiere wide receiver in the game by putting up over 1500 yards receiving along with 12 touchdowns. I think Smith is poised for another big year and that’s why he tops this list of fantasy wide receivers. Carolina has added Keyshawn Johnson to take some pressure off of Smith so he will not be double and tripled team as much. Jake Delhomme is a solid quarterback and the Panthers have a good line and a decent running game. There should be plenty of time to get Smith the ball and he’ll be able to find more openings in 2006.

2. Terrell Owens – We all know the saga of T.O. as it has been broadcasted on every media outlet imaginable a million times over. However, T.O. is back where he belongs, on an NFL team. I don’t think anyone can question this guy’s ability as a football player. In 2004, he hauled in 14 TD catches and racked up 1200 yards receiving in just 14 games. He played in the Super Bowl on one foot and still had 90 yards receiving. If anyone can get to Terrell Owens it is his current head coach, Bill Parcells. It may be inevitable that we will see another T.O. blow up but I don’t think it will be this year. Expect him to have a big time year in Dallas with Drew Bledsoe getting him the ball consistently. It also helps to have Terry Glenn opposite T.O. so that secondaries can’t just key in on Owens.

3. Torry Holt – Torry Holt has been a model of consistency in his 8 seasons with the Rams. He is a standout receiver in this league and has produced for fantasy owners in a big way. Last season he had 1696 yards receiving along with 12 touchdowns. He is a fantasy owner’s dream and I look for him to have another outstanding season. Holt has size, speed, and great hands. He also plays on a very productive offense that likes to throw the ball. With Mike Martz out that may change a little bit but Holt will still be productive on a team with plenty of weapons and a good quarterback in Mark Bulger.

4. Larry Fitzgerald – Larry Fitzgerald has been as productive as any receiver can be in his first two seasons as a pro. He had a breakout season in 2005 with 1409 yards and 10 touchdown catches. This is a guy who is only going to get better and he will develop into the consummate pro. Arizona is an offense that in my opinion will be much improved. They have added Edgerrin James so defenses will now have to honor the run and the pass. Matt Leinart if he signs soon could eventually be the starter which will only help Fitzgerald. Look for a big time season from this guy this year and grab him if you can.

5. Chad Johnson – Despite his big mouth, Chad Johnson is still a very good football player and has done a lot to help this Cincinnati offense. In 2005, he racked up 1432 yards receiving and 9 touchdowns. He plays on a good offense with a very good quarterback in Carson Palmer who appears to be ready to go. Cincinnati also has a strong run game which opens up the secondary for Johnson. He will put up solid numbers once again for fantasy owners and that’s why he is a top 5 fantasy receiver.
