Here's a look at the LestersLegends Super Bowl XLVII fantasy football wide receiver rankings.

1. Anquan Boldin, Baltimore Ravens

Boldin has been targeted 26 times in the Ravens three playoff wins, hauling in 16 of those passes for 276 yards and three touchdowns. The San Francisco 49ers have a physical defense, but that is the name of the game for Boldin. He is as strong as any receiver in the league and has great body control. Joe Flacco should continue to look for him in the red zone.

2. Michael Crabtree, San Francisco 49ers

Crabtree continues to emerge as Colin Kaepernick’s top choice. He has been targeted 18 times in two playoff games, catching 15 passes for 176 yards and a pair of touchdowns. The Ravens have to be concerned with Kaepernick and Frank Gore running the ball, which could open things up for Crabtree.

3. Torrey Smith, Baltimore Ravens

Smith is more inconsistent than Boldin and Crabtree, but the potential for him to have a breakout game is just as high. Smith has great speed and Flacco has the arm strength to deliver the deep ball.

4. Randy Moss, San Francisco 49ers

Moss saw more work down the stretch, averaging 4.4 targets per game during the last five games of the regular season and the two playoff games, with five catches for 71 yards in the two postseason contests. In his first 11 games, Moss was targeted just 2.5 times per game. He only topped 50 yards one game and finished with just three touchdowns on the year. Moss doesn’t play a ton of snaps, which keeps him fresh. He still has the ability to go up and get a jump ball.

5. Jacoby Jones, Baltimore Ravens

Jones is your feast-or-famine play. In the first and third playoff game he combined for 14 yards. In his second playoff game, he had 77 yards, including the dramatic 70-yard bomb to tie the game.
