Here’s an updated and expanded look at 2012 LestersLegends fantasy football wide receiver rankings.
.1. Calvin Johnson, Detroit Lions
Megatron was an absolute beast last year with 96 catches for 1681 yards and 16 scores. He’s number one and it’s not really close..2. Wes Welker, New England Patriots
What knee injury? All Welker did last year was catch 122 passes for 1569 yards and nine TDs. With Gronk and Aaron Hernandez it is hard to key in on Welker. Not to mention the addition of Brandon Lloyd..3. Hakeem Nicks, New York Giants
Victor Cruz put up better numbers last year, but Nicks was a force as well with 1192 yards and seven TDs..4. Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona Cardinals
Michael Floyd should relieve some of the attention on Fitz, who had his fourth 1400-yard season..5. Victor Cruz, New York Giants
After 1536 yards and nine TDs there should be plenty more salsa dancing in 2012.
6. Andre Johnson, Houston Texans
He makes me nervous because he couldn’t get healthy last ye...

Today was a the opening day of Texans 2012 Training Camp, and there was a buzz in the air. So much 5,012 fans showed up as early as 2 a.m. before the gates opened at 7 a.m. Plenty of notes on today’s camp.

Houston Texans receiver Andre Johnson has left practice with a pulled groin muscle.
Coach Gary Kubiak says Johnson's injury appears minor, but it may still force Johnson to miss ''a few'' practices.

A man says Arizona Cardinals defensive end Ronald Talley seriously injured him by smashing a champagne bottle over his head at a suburban Detroit bar.
A lawsuit filed Wednesday in Oakland County Circuit Court names Talley, five unknown bouncers and the now-closed South Bar. The lawsuit says Robert Ford was attacked for no reason at the Birmingham bar on March 26.
With the start of training camp inching closer, it’s time to preview the Houston Texans inside linebackers. This unit, coupled with the outside linebackers, help to shape one of the NFL’s top defensive units in 2011. Equally vital as the OLBs, the inside linebackers are a focal point in the 3-4 defensive scheme used by defensive coordinator Wade Phillips.
Defense is supposed to be the strength of the Arizona Cardinals, and it sure looked that way as the team wrapped up its first week of training camp with the annual Red and White practice.
A record crowd estimated at 14,500 watched the controlled scrimmage, where John Skelton and Kevin Kolb split time with the first team.
Kolb had the only touchdown pass of the Saturday session...

The good news is that Johnson’s injury doesn’t seem to be serious. He’ll now likely be held out of practice or limited until he gets back to being 100 percent healthy.
“It’s a minor (groin) strain,...
HOUSTON For some, the trading of veteran linebacker DeMeco Ryans to the Eagles on March 20 was a haphazard disregard of not only one of the more popular players in franchise history, but a defensive stalwart.
Never mind that Ryans was slowed by a preseason elbow injury and the rebuilt Achilles' tendon that sidelined him in 2010, or that he wasn't an ideal fit in the new...
