Fantasy Football 2013 Wide Receiver Rankings: Week 15

Marques Colston led all wide receivers in fantasy points last week after posting 125 yards and two touchdowns against Carolina

Calvin Johnson remains atop Athlon Sports' fantasy football Week 15 wide receiver rankings, but he's no longer running away from the pack.

Josh Gordon maintained his hot streak last week, adding seven catches for 151 yards and a touchdown to his impressive season totals. Johnson meanwhile was held in check not by Philadelphia's defense as much as the elements, as blizzard-like conditions for much of the game severely impacted both teams' ability to pass the ball. As a result, Gordon now finds himself leading the NFL in receiving yards and is within striking distance of Johnson in fantasy points. This week Gordon will look to add Chicago's secondary to his list of victims while Megatron will no doubt be happy to be back home (and indoors) against Baltimore playing in the Monday night spotlight.

In fact, the Bears vs. Browns matchup will feature three of the most productive wide receivers in the NFL in Gordon, along with Chicago's Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery. The Bears' rangy and athletic duo has combined for 159 catches, 2,283 yards and 11 touchdowns. All three wideouts are top-10 options this week that should pay off big for their owners, provided the weather cooperates.

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.
