Fantasy football wide receiver rankings for Week 15

We are a culture of rankings. We rank our favorite movies, restaurants and honey-do list priorities. Breakfast cereal? I easily have Lucky Charms ranked well ahead of Shredded Wheat. A Ford Mustang ranked higher than a Ford Fiesta. Vacuuming the living room ranked a few notches below cleaning the toilet on my annoying household chores list.

Rankings provide order to an otherwise chaotic situation. Like picking a fantasy football starter between two able candidates with the whole season hanging in the balance.

Week 15 provides plenty of chaos and entire seasons hang in the balance. Below are my wide receiver rankings for this week, with the hope of bringing some order to things. Feel free to leave comments below or on our interactive forums.

    Waiting for the Bernard Hopkins decision, thought I would throw out a question. When Floyd was ruled out I inserted Lloyd in my lineup. And I’m not feeling it at all with Tebow running the offense. My only other option is L Moore. What are your feelings now that Orton has been ruled out?

    Guessing you mean Lloyd. As in Brandong Lloyd. It is official that Tebow will get teh start. I don’t know if I’d be excited about Lloyd regardless of who was QBing. The Broncos have struggled a lot offensively. Tebow won’t help the process. I’d start LMoore over Lloyd at this point.
