Who are Your Top 5 Wide Recievers in the NFL?


heatratiocrop

In what should be a very active offseason, the Eagles have a lot of decisions to make. Who gets paid, cut, and/or allowed to walk. What is your biggest concern? On the other side of the parking lot, the Phillies are looking to build a winner too. Do they sign a top of the rotation guy named Jake?

How about the NBA? Were the Michael Jordan years the best the league has ever seen? Have people lost a respect for the game based on the play? Would you want or allow the Eagles to sign Dez Bryant if he gets cut? Is Kennan Allen the best WR in the NFL? If so, where does Larry Fitz grade out?

Lastly, Fantasy Baseball is right around the corner and 2 Top Sluggers have new homes. Who is the better play, Hosmer or Martinez?  There is so much packed into 1 hour!

The Heat Ratio (@theheatratio) brings a set of unique views and opinions each week to focus on all the top sports stories from the news. Listen in as Tony (@TCutillo23) says put Larry Fitz in his Top 3 for WRs while John (@PGHJohn36) says he belongs after the Top 5. From a Classic Tony rant to a Dez Bryant option, it’s all here just waiting for your take….

Things we have learned from Week 14……..

  • Mark Sanchez has proved to the Philadelphia Eagles brass that he is not a solution going forward. The Seattle Defense is playing at an all time high level, but they can still be beat. Mark showed why he is relegated to backup duty once Nick Foles comes back healthy!

 

  • Peyton Manning and Drew Brees turned in 2 of the lousiest performances of their perspective fantasy careers. If you had told me last week that the two would combine for only 408 passing yards and 1 TD, I would have called you certifiably insane. The fact is that Denver is in love with CJ Anderson and Manning always slows down toward playoff time.

 

  • Aaron Rodgers is playing in league all on his own. This guy has been nothing short of perfect and holds the all time Passer Rating record at 106.7. He has thrown a spectacular 223 TD’s and only 55 INT’s throughout his career so far. Rodgers could very well go down as the best QB ever to play the game!

 

Le’veon Bell cannot be stopped. He has taken over the crown as Fantasy’s Top RB….Percy Harvin gets hurt more than a 90 year old man in a nursing home walking without his cane….The Denver Broncos will keep feeding CJ Anderson in their own version of beast mode…..Julio Jones shows the NFL he still has game. He was playing like a man possessed on Monday night to the tune of 11/259/1….The Cincinnati Bengals are about as consistent as our judicial system..They always have a 50/50 chance at a win……Bishop Sankey is about as good as a fantasy player as Betty White is a stripper….Rob Ryan has locked up his tenure in New Orleans. The only thing that upsets him is leaving the good BBQ behind….There has been an APB put out on the following players: Jimmy Graham, Demaryius Thomas, Josh Gordon. They haven’t been seen since Week 13……Brian Hoyer gave every reason to get benched this week and prove that the decision for him to remain a starter must have been made under an intense drinking binge. Johnny Football is ready to make it rain!!!!!!

2014 Fantasy Football Under-performing Stars


brady bress

We are 6 weeks into the Fantasy Football season and there are plenty of surprises that continue to have us scratching our heads. This is what most of us refer to as the halfway point and a time where we need to decide to hold out hope or cut all loses.

There’s a long list of under-performing stars that have not only let us down, but keep our stomachs turning on a weekly basis. The reasons for lackluster performances can range anywhere between injury and team performance.  Either way you carve it up, it still amounts to a long and frustrating season that is full of squandering opportunities.

The following players below are my current under-performing stars in the 2014 fantasy football season. These stars have not lived up to their hype and, depending on where they were drafted, could be killing your squad.

***All stats are based on CBS Sports scoring with 1pt for every 10yds and 6pts for a TD.

 Quarterbacks

  • Drew Brees — Brees has been an elite Fantasy Quarterback for the last 5 years, but this year he has come back down to earth and showed he is human. He was drafted this year to be in the upper echelon on quarterbacks, not in the back-end of the Top 20.

Current Rank = #18

  • Tom Brady – We can almost echo the same sentiments above for Tom terrific, as he definitely has not lived up to expectations. Tom was also drafted as a tier 1 quarterback, but has produced more like a backup. His production seems to be based upon the lack of talent at many key positions, but after his week 6 performance of 361yds and 4tds this week, those thoughts may begin to change.

Current Rank = #12

 

Running Backs

  •  Lesean McCoy – This one is still a head scratcher. How can one of, if not the best running backs in the league be stymied inside of a Chip Kelly offense. He came into this year as the #1 ranked RB, but with a lack of burst and numerous offensive line injuries, he has been nothing short of brutal. He did manage to gain 149yds on the ground this last week so this, along with getting the rest of his O-line back after a bye week should be just what he needs to get back on track.

  Current Rank = #16

  • Eddie Lacy – The Green Packers have one of the most dynamic offenses in all of the NFL, but for some reason Eddie Lacy has not been able to get going. Eddie busted on the scene last year with 1178yds, 35rec, 257yds and 11td’s. He was one of the top 5 running backs selected in all drafts, but has now been delegated into a timeshare with James Starks. When you draft a top 5 RB, the word 3rd down back or timeshare are two phrases that should never be entered into a conversation.

 Current Rank = #21

 

Wide Receivers

  • Calvin Johnson – Oh how the mighty have fallen. Fantasy Football’s #1 fantasy receiver is having a horrific season so far marred with injury and misuse. The year started off well with him being the Calvin we know by accumulating 164yds and 2 tds, leaving all the owners who drafted him so high extremely happy. However, he has plummeted to the bottom quickly because of an ankle injury and for the unusual role of being a decoy. I’m sorry, but if I am the general manager of the Lions and I was paying him millions of dollars, I’d expect him to be more than a disguisable figure on the field.

 Current Rank = #34

  • Larry Fitzgerald – I think this pick could go either way as it all depends on where this player was drafted. Either way I look at it, Fitz should without a doubt be better than he is right now.  I understand Carson Palmer has been a hurt and Michael Floyd has started to rise to Fantasy Relevance, but he is definitely worthy of better all around numbers.

Current Rank = #58

  • Keenan Allen – After a fabulous freshman year, Keenan looked like he established himself as the #1 wide receiver for Phillip Rivers by hauling in a line of 71rec. 1046yds and 8td’s. However, this year has become the complete opposite as he looks to be cemented in as the 3rd or 4th option with the resurgence of Antonio Gates and Eddie Royal. It looks like he will be an inconsistent option all year long.

Current Rank = #44

  • Percy Harvin – Percy has battled through injuries in the past in order to establish himself as a dual threat, running and receiving the football. He looked well on his way to being a PPR monster on a team with a fantastic running game and very little wide receiver presence. This looked like the perfect scenario for Harvin, but instead has turned into a wasted weapon who has yet to record more than 60yds receiving in a game this year.

 Current Rank = #60

This is my list of undervalued stars at the half way point of this season. There are many scenarios that you may come up with in order to ride out the wave like hoping for rejuvenation or simply cutting ties and sending them to another owner. In the game of fantasy there are no prizes for player loyalty, just prizes for first place!

***Look for my overwhelming players of the years so far in the next coming days and please leave your comments below…..
