Fantasy Football 2014 Wide Receiver Rankings: Week 15

Julio Jones

Julio Jones set the pace last week, but even his record-setting performance wasn’t enough to knock Antonio Brown from atop Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Wide Receiver Rankings for Week 15. Jones was unstoppable on Monday night against the Packers, setting a Falcons single-game record with 250 yards (11 rec.) and a touchdown. Jones left the game early after injuring his hip, but at this point we’re not too concerned, hence his No. 6 ranking. Jones wasn’t the only wide receiver who filled the stat sheet last week either. A total of four wideouts scored 30 or more fantasy points, including A.J. Green. Injuries have impacted Green’s production for much of this season, but he looked plenty healthy against Pittsburgh, torching the Steelers for 11 catches and 224 yards, including an 81-yard touchdown. Green will face a little tougher matchup this Sunday against Cleveland’s Joe Haden, but he’s still a borderline top-10 option. And as far as Brown is concerned, he’s still leading his position in fantasy points and the NFL in receptions (105), while ranking second in both yards (1,375) and touchdown catches (11). It should be business as usual for Brown, as the Steelers will be in Atlanta to take on the Falcons’ 32nd-ranked defense.
