Fantasy Football Playoffs MVPs - Wide Receivers

And they said rookie receivers have trouble adjusting to the NFL!  Odell Beckham Jr has now been the top scoring wide receiver in fantasy football for the last 2 weeks, and finished 5th in Week 14!  He has racked up 71 fantasy points, thanks to 31 receptions (42 targets) that led to 421 yards and 6 touchdowns!  He scored three TDs in Week 15, two this past Sunday and one in Week 14.  He changed the future of the New York Football Giants, Eli Manning and Tom Coughlin in just 11 games.

Alshon Jeffery and Antonio Brown were the only other WRs to rank in the top 25 in all three weeks.   That includes guys going tonight on Monday Night Football like Demaryius Thomas, A.J. Green and Emmanuel Sanders.

Even with Jay Cutler on the bench and Jimmy Clausen as his QB, Jeffery managed to score a TD.  Jeffery caught just 16 passes in the playoffs for 245 yards and 3 TDs.  Brown caught just 1 Ben Roethlisberger TD and never finished higher than the 10th Best WR in the playoffs.  He caught 26 passes for 312 yards.

Dez Bryant matched Beckham in Week 15 with 3 touchdown passes from Tony Romo, and added another one this weekend, but in Week 14, his 6 catches for 82 yards was not enough to keep him in the top 25.

Terrance Williams, Riley Cooper, Torrey Smith and Mike Wallace matched OBJ in Week 16 with two scores.  Randall Cobb led all receivers with 131 yards and 11 receptions, but failed to score a TD.  Harry Douglas had a similar game in Week 15, filling in for Julio Jones.

In Week 14, Cole Beasley and Mike Evans combined for just 7 catches and 87 yards, but each caught 2 TDs.  Evans followed that up with 2 catches for 13 yards in Week 15, but managed to catch one in the endzone.  His 4 catches for 49 yards this week brought his 3 week total to just 107 yards.
