Fantasy Football 2013 Wide Receiver Rankings: Week 17

JoshGordon_fantasy_WR_4.jpg

Dez Bryant leads the Week 17 receivers charge as the Dallas Cowboys play host to the Philadelphia Eagles in Sunday night’s NFC East title game. Bryant gets an Eagles team that allows the most to catches, yards and TDs per game to receivers. He had eight catches for 110 yards on 16 targets in their Week 7 meeting.

Despite the gimpy knee, Calvin Johnson stays near the top of the rankings in Week 17. It’s hard to sit the game’s best when he gets a Minnesota Vikings team allowing the second-most to receivers this year. He will definitely be one of the biggest ones to monitor this week with the knee and the fact that the Lions are now out of the playoff picture.

Josh Gordon can wrap up a stellar season against a Steelers team he caught a season-high 14 balls for 237 yards and a score against in Week 12.
