Week 11 Fantasy Football Rankings: Top 70 Wide Receivers

Although we are only 10 games into the 2013 season, Bengals third-year receiver A.J. Green has already recorded his third consecutive 1,000-yard season.

The fourth-overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, Green joins Randy Moss and John Jefferson as the only other players to accomplish that feat.

This season, Green has 65 receptions for a league-leading 1,013 yards and six touchdowns and is on pace for 104/1,621/10. No player has more targets than Green (118) this season.

Not only does Green have a streak of three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons, but he has a streak of five consecutive 100-yard games.

During that stretch, Green has 34 receptions for 652 yards and three touchdowns and has a reception of 50-plus yards in four of those five games.

This week, Green and the Bengals face Joe Haden, one of the league's best young cornerbacks, and the Browns. In his first matchup this season against Haden, Green was limited to seven catches for just 51 yards and Green was the subject of my bold prediction in our Week 11 podcast.

The Browns have allowed two 100-yard receivers but both were the team's No. 2 receivers (Brian Hartline and Jarrett Boykin) as Haden held the No. 1 receivers, Mike Wallace (1/15/0) and Jordy Nelson (5/42/1), in check.

Back-to-back 100-yard games for Garcon

While not as impressive as a five-game streak, Washington's Pierre Garcon has finished with more than 100 yards in back-to-back games.

Before this two-game streak, Garcon had only one 100-yard game in the team's first seven games, but he has otherwise been consistent. He has at least five receptions in all nine games this season and more than 50 receiving yards in eight of nine games.

This week, Garcon and the Redskins face the Eagles, who have allowed the most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers this season.

Although the Eagles have not allowed a touchdown to a receiver in three weeks, they have allowed at least 142 yards to wide receivers in every game this season and at least 200 receiving yards in seven of nine games.

Only Green/Megatron have more yards than Jeffery since Week 4

In his breakout season, Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery currently ranks in the top-10 among wide receivers in fantasy points this season.

Jeffery has 47 receptions for 735 yards and three touchdowns on the season, but he also has nine rush attempts for 94 yards as well.

The bulk of Jeffery's production has come over his past six games. During that span, Jeffery has double-digit fantasy points five times and has gone over 100 yards in four of those games including his franchise-record 218 yards.

During that stretch, Jeffery has 34 receptions for 631 yards and three touchdowns. Only Green and Calvin Johnson have more yards during that span.

Meanwhile, the Ravens, this week's opponent, has allowed four 100-yard receiving games in their past five games.

[Unfortunately, it appears that the weather has the potential to wreak some havoc on the passing game for both teams this weekend, though.]

Rueben Randle: TD(s) or Catchless?

In his past five games, Giants second-year receiver Rueben Randle has five touchdowns and has scored in four of those games. In the other game, the Eagles held him without a catch.

With three or less receptions in seven of nine games, Randle has double-digit fantasy points in four games this season but he also has one point or less in three games.

On the season, Randle has 26 receptions on 50 targets for 423 yards and five touchdowns.

For a receiver without a touchdown this season, however, teammate Hakeem Nicks has more receptions (38) or targets (72) than any other touchdown-less receiver in the league.

This week, the Giants face the Packers, who have allowed a total of five touchdowns to wide receivers in their past two games.
