Our weekly positional power rankings shift to running backs this week.

Paul Kuharsky will have the main piece on the AFC South blog later Tuesday.

In the meantime, I wanted to offer another item on the receiver rankings that came out last week.

Larry Fitzgerald finished second to Andre Johnson in that poll, but he has no serious competition in the NFC West.

The chart ranks NFC West wide receivers by regular-season receptions since 2008, based on totals available at Pro Football Reference. The totals reflect only those catches made while playing for teams in the division. Anquan Boldin's receptions with Baltimore would not count, for example.

Fitzgerald (three) and Boldin (one) are the only receivers to earn Pro Bowl honors while playing for an NFC West team during the three-year period in question.

The San Francisco 49ers last had a Pro Bowl wideout in 2003 (Terrell Owens). The St. Louis Rams had one in 2007 (Torry Holt). The Seattle Seahawks haven't had one since Brian Blades in 1989. Receiver Alex Bannister made it as a special-teamer in 2003.
