Fantasy Football 2013: Wide Receiver Rankings

Author:
Larry Fitzgerald

There is no change atop Athlon Sports' Fantasy Football 2013 Wide Receiver Rankings as the preseason wraps up, but that doesn't mean some of the top options haven't had trouble-free training camps either. Roddy White sustained a sprained ankle that put an end to his preseason snaps, while Victor Cruz was sidelined by a heel injury. Both are expected to be ready to go and be in the starting lineup in Week 1.

New England's Danny Amendola is another wideout who has already gotten nicked up, which is nothing new for the former Ram. Amendola has a golden opportunity with the Patriots to produce legitimate No. 1 wide receiver numbers, but it all comes down to him staying healthy. The good news for Tom Brady is that undrafted rookie Kenbrel Thompkins has made the most of an unsettled receiving corps and appears to have emerged as a legitimate option in the Patriots' passing game. Thompkins checks in at No. 53 in our final preseason rankings, while Amendola is just outside of the top 15 at No. 17 overall.
