No Redskins wide receivers crack the top 30 in fantasy football rankings, Pierre Garcon comes in at 35th.

No one will tell you the strength of the Washington Redskins is their wide receivers. It is a serviceable bunch, but there are no stars in the group and that fact is reflected in the fantasy football WR rankings from SB Nation's fantasy sports site Fake Teams.

It might be even harder to appropriately rank Redskins WRs this year than in the past. Yes, RG3 should be a significant improvement at the QB position, but he is only a rookie and no one can be certain how long it will take him to reach his potential and what bumps he might encounter along the way. The highest ranked receiver is new acquisition Pierre Garcon, who was ranked 35th. Garcon and Griffin looked like they had a connection in the preseason opener, so there is hope that Garcon can outperform his ranking.

Other Redskins receivers on the list of the top 75 include Leonard Hankerson (57th) and Santana Moss (58th).
