Detroit Lion Calvin Johnson tops the list of 2012 Fantasy Football Wide Receivers.

To continue our 6 part Philly Sports World Fantasy Football series for 2012, we turn our attention to the Wide Receiver position. Picking the Top 25 Wide Receivers in the NFL is an endeavor that is certainly going to end with plentiful jeers. While we will undoubtedly have to leave off some names that are fantasy stars of the past, the Top 25 that we did pick, we believe will have the most potential to produce fantasy football points. Since points are the name of the game in fantasy football, that’s what we went with. We threw in a list of very honorable mentions at the end just in case you find yourself short come draft day!
