Fantasy Football 2013 Wide Receiver Rankings: Week 10

Andre Johnson went for 229 yards and three touchdowns last week

Calvin Johnson is the undisputed top choice for Athlon Sports' fantasy football Week 10 wide receiver rankings, but he's not the only wideout with the last name of Johnson putting up ridiculous numbers. Houston's Andre Johnson did his best Megatron impression last Sunday night by posting nine catches for 229 yards and three touchdowns against Indianapolis. Even better for owners of the Texans' All-Pro receiver is that he did this with unheralded Case Keenum as his quarterback. The duo will look to replicate their success this Sunday on the road against Arizona.

Johnson isn't the only premier wide receiver thriving with a backup quarterback either. Chicago's Brandon Marshall caught seven passes for 107 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' Monday night win in Green Bay with Josh McCown at quarterback in place of an injured Jay Cutler. Alshon Jeffery also hauled in a TD from McCown, making both relatively safe options this week against Detroit regardless of whether it's Cutler or McCown under center.

The same can't be said for Green Bay's Jordy Nelson, James Jones and Jarrett Boykin, at least not yet. The Packers will host the Eagles without Aaron Rodgers leading their offensive attack. Rodgers will miss at least three weeks after breaking his collarbone in the Monday night loss to the Bears, which means Seneca Wallace will get his opportunity, at least for the time being. Wallace was less than impressive (114 yards, INT) in relief of Rodgers, although he does get a favorable matchup with the NFL's worst defense coming to Lambeau Field. Can Wallace do enough in the passing game to keep Nelson, Jones and Boykin fantasy relevant? Their owners certainly hope so.

Each week during the NFL season, we will rank enough players at each position to appease everyone from those in 8-team leagues to 16-team leagues, those that can start two QBs, two TEs, three RBs and four WRs. We cut out the rest, because if you're looking at who the 50th-best running back or the 17th-best kicker is for that week, you need more help than any website can give you.
