Fantasy Football 2013: Wide Receiver Rankings

Author:
Calvin Johnson

NFL training camps are in full swing and even though preseason action has yet to really begin, Athlon Sports' Fantasy Football 2013 Wide Receiver Rankings have seen their fair share of changes. It actually started back in May when San Francisco's Michael Crabtree tore his Achilles. Although it's possible he could return before the end of the season, the injury all but ruined Crabtree's status a potential breakout candidate for this season.

The hits have kept coming, unfortunately, with Jeremy Maclin also already lost for the season because of a torn ACL and Percy Harvin out until at least November because of hip surgery. These injuries present opportunities for bigger numbers from the likes of an Anquan Boldin, DeSean Jackson and Sidney Rice, as well as open the door for someone else on the respective team's roster to emerge.

Fortunately, there are still plenty of legitimate No. 1 options who are healthy, a list that begins with Calvin Johnson. The man named as Megatron broke Jerry Rice's single-season record for receiving yards and was fantasy's No. 1 wide receiver last season despite catching just five touchdown passes.
