It’s a material world and I’m a material girl…wait, strike that. What I meant to say was it’s a passing league and I’m a fantasy…hrm, pig? Say it like you’re Ren, you eeedeeot! Yeah, all I’m trying to say here is it’s no surprise with how dramatically the passing side of the league has changed that the wide receivers have become an easier commodity to bank on from week to week and may create a different way to look at things moving forward in terms of how we draft. But of course, that’s not what this post is about. It’s more about finding out what rhymes with league. Seriously, google dat chit. WTF is a ‘Schmeig’? It’s not even on urban dictionary and if anything belongs on the UD, it’s Schmeig…wait, that’s not really what this post is about either. We’re here to look back at this year’s crop of wide receivers and see how the dust settled on their season. So without more ado, let’s review. Here are the Top 20 Wide Receivers from the 2013 Fantasy Football Season…

For a fourth straight season, Razzball will be interviewing local NFL beat writers for some actual in-depth football knowledge to shed some additional light on our fantasy football knowledge.  Keep your eye out for an interview for every NFL team through the summer.  This installment comes courteous of Kevin O’Connor from leading New England Patriots blog Pats Pulpit:

The original plan was to be visiting family with remote internet access the week prior to preseason action. So of course, a wine and food fair event just HAD to bump that back a week. The best part? We didn’t go to the wine and food fair. Too tired from all the traveling and didn’t want to spend time with the annoying relatives. That’s truth with a capital hashtag in front, peeps, and why never to book hotel rooms in advance. I know you don’t care about any of this blather, really, but want you to know that I’m a bit behind on all the goings on over the last week. I heard DX died. Ok, he didn’t die really but in our fantasy football world, being out for the remainder of the year is pretty similar. BTW, it’s bad enough to tear it once but he’s now torn his ACL 5 times. Screw Tommy John surgery, we need Danario Alexander surgery that replaces completely worthless ACLs. But enough about that, I’m gonna do my best to post what I know – very little -and what I gleaned – a bit more – from all this preseason football. I’m going to then gently apply it to this here 2013 Fantasy Football season for you all cuz that’s what I do. I’m a giver. But before I give you that, I’m here to give you this. That ‘this’ is a link to the Razzball Commenter Leagues. We don’t have many leagues. It’s embarrassing. I call my mother and cry on the phone about it and the only person who can change that is you. Maybe not you on your own, but you and another 11 you’s to join your quest for sweet Razzball swag. You can call them mini-you’s if you prefer. But enough about your Dr. Evil impersonations, it’s time to cover a bit of the magic that is preseason football for the 2013 fantasy football season…

You ever get the feeling that things are too good to be true? Like that one time that hot girl from chem class Candice invited you over because she just couldn’t figure out how she was gonna survive that Algebra test and you thought to yourself ‘she has an ‘A’ in that class, no way she’s asking me over for a study session’. So you dress up in your best Mossimo t-shirt, your cool bandana, your shell necklace, threw your jansport bag on your back and trudged over for a little ‘studying’. Then you got there and all of her friends were there, books out on the table. She had her hair in a messy bun while wearing her reading glasses and a gym shirt while everyone was arguing over what a polynomial was. There was no reason for you to think the situation was any more then what it looked like except for the fantasies racing around in your head telling you different. Well I’m here to tell you something very similar is going on with our freshly coifed friend Wes Welker and his fantasy outlook this year. So follow me as I move on from my Candice fantasies and move onto why Welker will let you down for 2013 Fantasy Football…

So I need to air something with you here from the get go: this was waaaaayyyy too early to be drafting. We held this on July 10th which is a good two months from real kick-off. I highly encourage you to never get that far from the start of the season. Too much can happen between now and game one of the year. We don’t know who’s hobbled other than guys with off-season surgery. I mean, first pre-season snap hasn’t even been made and we’re out here drafting like we know what’s what and in a deep league, no less. And yes, this is a deep league to an extent. It’s one thing to have 14 teams, it’s entirely another to have the standard set up plus 3 flex positions on top of them in said 14 team. Oh and one of the flex spots has a QB just to add to the fun. But enough of the blather, here’s my team for the ‘American League’ 14 team Auction draft for 2013 Fantasy Football…

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…

Now this is the section of wide receivers that’s interesting to review for 2013 reasons. Many of these guys were hurt by their QB’s poor play or hurt themselves. However, this section is also full of second half bloomers that just might be cheap options come draft day. So strap on whatever you like to strap on to read this type of stuff because we’re going to review these wide receivers based off of my 2012 fantasy football rankings and compare my projections with their end of season rankings care of yahoo’s PPR system. Now that we have that established, let’s take a look at the top 40 wide receivers that were for the 2012 fantasy football season…
