Fantasy Position Rankings - Wide Receivers
Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Depending on what fantasy rules your league follows, wide receivers could be given bonus points for 40- or 50-plus yard touchdown receptions and for eclipsing the 100- or 200-yard marks in a game.

If only receivers were also rewarded bonus points for jump-kicking punters in the face.

On a serious note, in his typical fashion, Antonio Brown pulled another head- scratching act in trying to run his cleats through Cleveland punter Spencer Lanning's face mask, rather than simply running around him. If he did the latter, Brown would have likely scored.

But if that is the biggest blunder Brown has all season, fantasy owners will take it. His five catches for 116 yards and one touchdown have every owner who passed on him scratching their heads. Brown has speed, the tenacity to go across the middle of the field and the hands to catch the tough passes in the corner of the end zone. He should repeat his performance in Baltimore and is thus ranked the No. 5 receiver this week.

Michael Floyd and Cordarrelle Patterson are new additions to the top 10 in Week 2. Floyd led Arizona with seven targets, five catches and 119 yards on Monday as he as solidified himself as Palmer's favorite target even ahead of Larry Fitzgerald. Patterson has a favorable match against New England this week and is coming off an 18 point-performance in standard scoring leagues. However, he rushed for 102 yards and a touchdown, so if he is to maintain his healthy fantasy production, he must be more involved in the passing game.

Michael Crabtree's status takes a hit this week as he is ranked No. 27. He caught just two passes for 25 yards against Dallas, but it was difficult to tell if that was due to the 49ers huge lead or Crabtree's calf injury. If you want to play it safe, follow the wait-and-see approach with Crabtree.

Saints rookie Brandin Cooks was a sleeper during draft time, and he awoke with a great Week 1, seven catches and 77 yards. Drew Brees targeted Cooks eight times, which was just as many as Marques Colston. New Orleans is playing a tougher pass defense this week in Cleveland, but Cooks is a nice WR3 and borderline FLEX start this week.

Stay away from Keenan Allen this Sunday. He is a marginal fantasy stud, but with his poor performance against Arizona, he is not worth the risk against Seattle.

Victor Cruz's value is falling fast. It is never a good idea to sell low, but in an offense that will likely sputter in the first eight games with new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo, Cruz's value may be as high as it ever will be in 2014.
