Patience. It’s not natural. No one is born with it. If you have kids you know this…it’s not the default. And this plays right into the benefit of the general fantasy population for the game’s most popular sport. It’s all inclusive, all right now.

Come on in, grab a beer. Have a seat and pick some football players for a little more than an hour. It’s so easy. Then, check it twice a week for five minutes total and dominate the emotional well-being of your co-workers, friends, and neighbors. Hell, sit behind a screen and obliterate complete strangers from around the world. And when Sunday rolls around you just gave yourself a reason to veg in front of the TV, be incredibly distracted at church, watch the stattracker on your phone while driving and totally neglect everyone of importance in your life for the sake of yelling at John Kuhn when he vultures a TD from anyone of fantasy relevance on the Packers. It’s simple and easy for everyone to play. Millennials rejoice! Participation! (As a millennial, I’d like to state on the record I will not give my kids trophies for finishing last…)

Without targets, there would be no receptions. Being targeted is the first, and most crucial factor, to the success of a pass catcher. If the ball isn’t thrown in your direction, you cannot succeed. I decided to take a look at how targets were being spread around among each team and then how each player was converting those targets. Below are the results and I’ve included a link to the Excel spreadsheet (Download) containing the full report. This exercise will only be “targeting” wide receivers and tight ends.

This week’s injury report is brought to you by hurt hamstrings. These seem to be all the rage around the league right now and make up a majority of the injuries we’re seeing on this week’s report. The good news is that once old Doc here can figure out how to heal them, a lot of players should be coming back.

Hamstrings are the muscles in the back of the leg that help allow you to bend your knee. Imagine yourself trying to kick a football but you couldn’t bend your leg. That would be what life is like with a hamstring injury. Kicking is tough, running is hard and slow and they don’t seem to heal quickly for anything.

Let’s take a look at who is all on the training table this week. All injuries are hamstring unless noted otherwise.

With Julio Jones likely out for the season, now might be a good time to take a gamble on Harry Douglas or make a trade for either Steven Jackson or Roddy White if you can get them. When an offensive weapon like that goes down, the surrounding cast all has to step up to the plate. They all come with question marks, but considering how disappointing Atlanta has been this year, there’s a chance you could get one of them for a relatively low price. That all being said, Atlanta is on bye this week so be sure to factor that into your decisions.

Welcome and thank you for following me into July. I will be your host for the rankings show that never quits. If you’re new around here, I’ll get you up to speed. I’ve brought you a Top 10, a Top 20 and a Top 50 to date and will round out the rankings with words version of our overall rankings today while still covering the remaining position ranking needs. Wanna know where I pulled those magical hyperlinks from? Well you can either click here where I say Razzball Fantasy Football Rankings or you can be a big boy/girl and navigate up to the Menu and see where the magical word ‘Rankings’ is to start your journey. Whatever you do on this trip, though, avoid the Swamps of Sadness…ARTAX! But enough of that, I do hope you’ve liked the process of these rankings. I’m not gonna lie, the slow reveal makes me feel sexy. Though of course that has much more to do with me removing an article of clothing each time I do. Thankfully for both of us, I bundled up like I lived in The Northern Territories before I started. I’m getting down to my third thermal layer and I can’t wait to get the wool sweater underneath it off along the way…but of course you came for Rankings and not my unique fashion sense for the hot summer months and that’s what you’ll get. So here is the Top 100 for the 2013 Fantasy Football season. Pardon me while I remove my goose down jacket…

What you’re still here? You want more rankings? You’re not satisfied with Top 20’s? Well then let’s make this go to 11…given the context, maybe a Spinal Tap reference doesn’t make sense there but whatevs, we’re still ranking and you’re still reading. Yesterday I gave you my Top 40 Running Backs and on Monday I gave you my Top 50 for 2013 Fantasy Football. And before all that, I gave you all the rankings you’d ever want to rankle with up above in the menu bar…where it says Rankings. If you can’t tell, I’m going for the record amount of times I can type ‘rankings’ in one paragraph and I think I’m gonna get there. Rankings. But enough about my pursuit for the Guinness, let’s get on with the Top 40 Wide Receivers for 2013 Fantasy Football…

So you’re in a fantasy league that plays all 17 weeks huh?  That can always be rough for the teams whose early round picks are resting comfortably on the bench because their playoff seed is locked up.  Thankfully, this year there are fewer of those players than there typically are in week 17, but there are still plenty of concerns.
