The WR Hierarchy: Week 17

Each week we will release “The Hierarchy” for each position. The Hierarchy will release players rank according to where we at NoHuddle believe they will fall for that particular week using a tiered system. The higher the tier, the better off, the lower the tier, the more you want to stay away from those players. All rankings are based on upcoming opponent, past performances, and projections for the current week. Here we go:

** Sorry for the delay, but we wanted to get a better idea of who would play and not play this weekend. It is also really hard to determine how much a guy will play in Week 17. So, have your Championship in Week 16 next year!!**
