Fantasy Football 2014 Wide Receiver Rankings: Week 9

Jeremy Maclin

Several familiar faces are missing from Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Wide Receiver Rankings for Week 9 because of the bye situation. Six teams are taking this week off, which means some fantasy owners may be digging a little deeper into their bench than usual. Fortunately, there’s still plenty of talent available at wide receiver, starting with leading fantasy scorer Antonio Brown. Brown caught 10 passes for 133 yards and two scores against Indianapolis, and that still was the best performance in Week 8. Jeremy Maclin led all wideouts in fantasy points after putting up 187 yards and two touchdowns against Arizona while Emmanuel Sanders was on the end of three Peyton Manning touchdown passes in the Broncos’ Thursday night win over San Diego. All three are top-six options this week, followed by A.J. Green, who is aiming to return after missing the past three games because of a toe injury.

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 Web site can give you.
