Fantasy Fox: Top 50 wideouts for Week 7 (standard scoring)

Receivers Dez Bryant (left -- vs. N.Y. Giants), Andre Johnson (middle -- @ Pittsburgh) and Julio Jones (right -- @ Baltimore) are all good bets for 110 yards and/or one touchdown this weekend.

Here are my top 50 wide receivers for Week 7, citing standard-scoring leagues only.

This countdown doesn’t lean on a particular stat. It’s merely an educated best guess of which pass-catchers will tally the best combination of total yards and touchdowns for the NFL’s seventh weekend.

And once again, we are not expecting injured stars Calvin Johnson (ankle) or A.J. Green (toe) to suit up on Sunday.

Regardless of how these rankings shake out every week, it shouldn’t supersede two important factors that go into regular lineup consideration:

1. Always play your healthy superstars.
2. Always ride your gut instinct over a certain guru’s analysis (read: plausible deniability).
