Plenty of quality receivers are in fantasy football, but that doesn't mean that some aren't overvalued for their production level.

The third installment of our four-part series on overvalued players takes aim at seven wide receivers who fall into this category. These players are being taken earlier in drafts (as determined by ESPN.com's average draft position) than they should be based on my own value analysis. They range from top-of-the-line No. 1 wideouts to long-time veterans who no longer command automatic start status.

Here are my seven most overvalued fantasy wide receivers.
