Wide Receiver Rankings Who To Start Week 8 in Fantasy Football


With Calvin Johnson’s continued struggles and Andre Johnson on a bye week, all three of our wide receiver rankings had a new number one at the tom. The funny thing is that while all three had new #1′s all three had different number ones. Check out the top 40 wide receivers for week 8 below.

As usual, I (ZT) was joined in the rankings by Steve Copps (SC) and Jeffrey Littrell (JL) who are contributors for FantasyCPR. We ranked our top 40 with NR (not ranked) counting for 45 for averaging purposes.
