2014 Rankings: Top-200 | Top-200 (Half-PPR) |  Top-200 (PPR) | QB | RB | RB (PPR)| WR | WR (PPR) | TE | TE (PPR) | K | DST | IDP Rankings: Top-100 | DL | DB | LB

Welcome to the second part of receiver rankings, where we here at Razzball put the PP in PPR. Wait, what? As stated in the standard receiver rankings, I find this position the hardest, though your mom never complains. ICE BURN. Just the sheer volume of names combined with the fact that your standard roster size requires at least three to four of them, well, you now know what’s going on in my general vicinity. And if you’re that close, WATCH OUT, for you will like love the cut of this jib. Because I guess it’s 40’s throwback vernacular Thursday. [Puts on fedora, winks, begins to swing dance.] So let’s go ahead and begin the great quest to put our PP in PPR (there’s gotta be a better way to say that) and get to the rankings… (wearing pants is optional, but frowned upon in this establishment.)

As touched upon in the Tight End (PPR) Rankings, everything here is ruled by the almighty reception. Or the allception, if you’re into the whole brevity thing. You’ll notice guys like Antonio Brown, Kendall Wright, and Greg Jennings go up in value. The entire receiver core for Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, and Aaron Rodgers will also see added value across the board for obvious reasons, especially Wes Welker, “who makes that catch 287 times out of 10″. And on the flip-side, anybody with hands (and I guess they would need feet too) on the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers, where targets are few and far between, will see a dip in value. And I could put Megatron in his own tier, but honestly, you’d be happy to have any of the top-5. In fact, I think you’d be happy to land any two receivers in the first two or three tiers. Furthermore, there are some guys (Brian Hartline, Brandon LaFell, Justin Hunter) in tier 4 that would do just fine (but not dandy, no dandiness allowed) on any roster, as opposed to tier 6, which is just full of nightmares. To be honest, I didn’t even know Santonio Holmes was still alive…

  1. You hit the nail right on the head with the team bumps. My buddies and I have a PPR, and were destroyed last year by my girlfriend and her squad of Broncos players (Peyton, Demarius, Decker, even Prater…). This year looks to be the year to own any of the top 2 or 3 receivers from the Broncs, Pack, Falcons, and Chitown (I’d even toss Indy in there), and to a lesser degree the Cards and Skins top 2. I think if you walk away from a draft with multiples from the first group, whew boy is the potential there to just mop up week to week.

    Not everyone can be Megatron, but if you’re on the right team with a good QB and don’t drop the ball you can be on my fantasy team any day.

      @Jordy’s Jorts: Yup, PPR really changes the dynamic with some of these guys. If you target offenses that have systems like the Broncos, or even the Chargers, and some of the teams you mentioned, where there are plenty of targets, you’ll be happy with what you have.

    Dynasty league trade offers to ponder-

    PPR
    28-man rosters
    12 teams
    No contracts
    Every player kept year to year
    Owners can start 2 YEs

    Jace Amaro and Jerick McKinnon
    For
    Charles Sims and Roy Helu

    Ray Rice and Jace Amaro
    For
    Roy Helu and Mike Wallace

    So as to not influence responders, I won’t say which players are mine. What side do you prefer in each offer?

      @Wallpaper Paterson: Hmm. I’d want the Amaro/McKinnon and Helu/Wallace side.

      Out of all those, I’d want the Wallace deal the most.

        @Jay: I went back and forth for several days, thought about cancelling both, thought about making a counter offer- I thought about everything.

        I made a decision today. I accepted the first offer. McKinnon and Amaro are now on my team and I will hold onto Wallace for now.

          @Wallpaper Paterson: I agree with your decision, especially glad to hear you have Wallace. I’m not crazy about Miami’s offense, but I think he’s going to have a pretty good year.

      @SMLV1: Sorry for the delay on this. For some reason, I just got the notification.

      Out of the waivers group there, I’d want Fred Jackson and Brian Hartline. Though, I like Beckham too.
