Week 10 Fantasy Football Rankings: Updated Top 70 Wide Receivers

Going into the 2013 season, Falcons wide receiver Roddy White was highly productive and durable.

Not only did he play in every regular-season game in the first eight years of his career, but he had a streak of six seasons of 80-plus receptions and 1,100-plus yards. He was even better in the past three seasons with an average line of 102/1,345/8.

Neither durable nor productive, it's been a disappointing season so far for White and his fantasy owners.

While I admire his toughness, White began the regular season playing through the high-ankle sprain he suffered in the preseason. More of a decoy than anything else, White had just 14 receptions for 129 yards and no touchdowns in five games before also suffering a hamstring injury.

After missing the past few games, White will make his return this week against the Seahawks, who have the league's third-stingiest fantasy defense for wide receivers.

Considering he's less than 100 percent and facing Richard Sherman and the Legion of Boom, it's smarter to take a wait-and-see approach with White this week if you're in a 10- or 12-team league.

Hopefully he doesn't aggravate any of his injuries this week and provides his fantasy owners with some production down the stretch.

Keenan Allen: 100+ yards and a TD in 3 of past 4G

Since Week 4, Chargers rookie receiver Keenan Allen has been one of the league's most productive receivers.

During that five-game stretch, Allen has a total of 31 receptions for 497 yards and three touchdowns and at least 67 receiving yards each week. Only five receivers have more receiving yards since Week 4.

Against the Redskins last week, Allen finished with eight receptions for a season-high 128 yards and a touchdown. It was the third time in four games that Allen went over 100 yards and scored a touchdown.

While several are tied with Allen at three 100-yard receiving games this season, only four players have more than Allen: Saints TE Jimmy Graham and Bengals WR A.J. Green (tied with five) and Lions WR Calvin Johnson and Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (tied with four).

This week, Allen and the Chargers face the Broncos, who have allowed the sixth-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers.

There is a strong possibility that this game will develop into a shootout and Allen should be the Chargers' most-targeted receiver once again.

Andre Johnson on pace for a career-high 1,626 yards

Texans receiver Andre Johnson finished with nine receptions for 229 yards and three scores as the team lost to the Colts on Sunday Night Football. It was Johnson's third-ever 200-yard game and the second-highest total of his career.

Through eight games this season, Johnson has a total of 57 receptions for 813 yards and three touchdowns.

If he maintains his pace, he will finish with 114 receptions, one shy of his career high, and 1,626 yards, which would establish a new career high.

Facing the Cardinals, Johnson will draw one of the league's top cornerbacks in Patrick Peterson on Sunday. This season, the Cardinals have allowed the sixth-fewest fantasy points to opposing receivers.
