Fantasy Football 2013 Wide Receiver Rankings: Week 14

Josh Gordon

Calvin Johnson maintains his standing as the No. 1 wide receiver in Athlon Sports' fantasy football Week 14 rankings, but there's a young Brown hot on his heels.

All Josh Gordon has done the last two weeks is post back-to-back 200-yard receiving games becoming the first player in NFL history to do so. If there's any concern with Gordon, who is ranked No. 5 on this week's list, it's his quarterback situation. Both Jason Campbell and Brandon Weeden are banged up and it may not be known until game time who will be under center against New England. With all the damage Gordon has done recently, it may not matter who his quarterback is, which is why you have no choice but to start him and hope for the best.

As impressive as Gordon was last week, scoring 43.1 fantasy points, he wasn't even the top player at his position. That honor goes to Eric Decker, who caught four of Peyton Manning's five touchdown passes against Kansas City. Decker totaled eight catches for 174 yards, scoring 46.4 fantasy points and moving him ahead of teammate Wes Welker to No. 11 among all wide receivers. Welker currently slots in at No. 14 and when combined with Demaryius Thomas (third), gives the Broncos three of the top 15 fantasy wide receivers. Denver hosts Tennessee on Sunday and even with the expected winter-like conditions, you didn't come this far to sit one of them now did you?

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.
