Greg Jennings, Packers - Moving Up
He’s becoming the go to guy in the end zone, moving him ahead of Favre favorite Driver on this ranking.  He is the ‘next generation’ lead receiver in Wisconsin and belongs in your early draft sights the next few years.

Roddy White, Falcons - Moving Up
The Falcons, with all their QB issues this year, are about to have a 1,000+ yard receiver.  White has quietly put up respectable numbers and is in the top ten in overall yards.  If he can do this with the stuff he’s had to put up with this year, imagine what he could do with a good quarterback for a whole year!

Deion Branch, Seahawks - Moving Down
His up and down season is due to two things, injuries and erratic quarterback play.  He still is a high end option, but until Seattle gets things together consistently, none of the team’s receivers can be counted as dependable.
 
Kevin Curtis, Eagles - Moving Up
It took a while to catch on week to week, but Curtis has obviously become the number one receiver in Philly.  He’s actually done better with Feely in at QB, so that’s a bonus for fantasy owners.

Bobby Engram, Seahawks - Moving Up
Bobby is the senior receiver in Seattle, but he’s the most consistent of the bunch.  He’s really the only guy on the team who can be counted on just about every week. He’ll likely finish the season with over 1,000 yards and 6-8 touchdowns, which will be in the top twenty or so overall.  The only knock on him is age, which keeps him down a little on this list.

Plaxico Burress, Giants - Moving Down
His injury is likely the cause of his demise, however, his numbers have been plummeting, not something that can allow him to stay at the top of the rankings.  Looking out into the future he could get back to the top, but add in the inconsistency of Manning and he’s too big a question mark to leave at the top of the rankings at this time.

Calvin Johnson, Lions - Moving Down
A week after moving him up, we move him back down.  Get this – Roy Williams is having one of the best days he’s had all year, and goes out with injury.  You would think CJ would jump in and step up…but instead he has one catch for seventeen yards.  There has to be something going on that the public isn’t being made privy to, otherwise this defies reason.  This guy has star potential that is not being tapped on a Mike Martz offense…go figure.

Reggie Brown, Eagles - Moving Down
The heir apparent has been overall ineffective this year.  He’ll finish with solid number three numbers, maybe low number two, but compared to what he was supposed to have, it is a disappointment.

Justin Gage, Titans - Moving Up
While he won’t be a threat to the top tier while playing in Tennessee, he breaks into the top seventy with solid stats on the season.  He is the top receiver on the team, which is saying a lot when you realize how little the team utilizes the air attack.

Drew Carter, Panthers - Moving Up
Carter has put up respectable numbers playing on a passing unit that has been severely hampered by injury.  He is making a play to be the number two guy opposite Steve Smith, so bears watching.

Roydell Williams, Titans - Moving Down
Bottom line, his stats aren’t as good as Justin Gage’s, who is the top receiver on the team.  He’s worth having in deep leagues, but this team isn’t a passing team and won’t be anytime soon.  This hurts his value short and long term.

* Several top receivers are injured, leading me to not them with an asterisk.  Note that movement with these players is limited, as they in all likelihood will regain their positions when they return.
