Wide Receiver Rankings-Who to Start for Week 9 in Fantasy Football


Wide Receiver is a very volatile position. Calvin Johnson has sat atop our rankings for many weeks this year but has struggled to rediscover his elite form from last year. As a result, he slips to four this week with Andre Johnson, A.J. Green, and Brandon Marshall passing him up in the composites.

Fortunately, there’s also a number of emergent wide receivers available on many leagues waiver wires. For our top ten Waiver Wire Targets, click here.
