Now that Week 3 is all wrapped up, fantasy football players are stating to see the benefits of the Zero Running Back Strategy.
Here are the highest-scoring fantasy football wide receivers thus far, in the 2014 NFL season:
For most drafts, Calvin Johnson, A.J. Green, Demaryius Thomas, Dez Bryant, Brandon Marshall and Jordy Nelson were the top receivers off of the board.
For standard scoring leagues, here is how the players mentioned above are ranked among their fellow wide receivers:
Julio Jones: First
Calvin Johnson: Fourth
Jordy Nelson: Fifth
Dez Bryant: Eighth
Brandon Marshall: 10th
Outside of top 10- A.J. Green
Outside of top 30-= Demaryius Thomas
It is important to note that A.J. Green did not score any fantasy points in Week 2, and yet, he is still inside the top-20 wide receiver in fantasy football scoring. If he didn’t miss a week, he would most likely be in the top 10.
Outside of Thomas, the wide receivers you selected in the early rounds have lived up to their costs.
