No position in fantasy football fluctuates like the wide receiver spot, which is proved not only by erratic point totals the first few weeks of the season, but in the Week 3 staff rankings. Consider that in Week 1 Kevin Ogletree, Julio Jones, Stephen Hill, Lance Moore, Andre Johnson, Brandon Marshall and Demaryius Thomas each scored 17 or more fantasy points. In Week 2, that group, save for Thomas (fantasy's top wide receiver so far), combined for 10 fantasy points. So if you own one of those fellows, mainly the ones who should be considered as starters, how does one analyze their worth?
