Fantasy WR PPR Rankings

It’s no secret that the NFL is officially a “passing league,” and while that creates more high-upside options at wide receiver, it also makes it more difficult to discern between the various tiers. Certain studs, such as Michael Thomas and Julio Jones, will always been near the top of the WR rankings, but trying to predict a full-fledged breakout from a WR2/3 or even those sleepers further down the list is tough. Even though there are more receptions to go around, it seems as if there are more candidates to gobble them up.

Ultimately, that’s a good problem to have as you ready a draft strategy for this position. After nabbing a top option in one of the first three rounds, there are a variety of different ways you can fill out your depth chart. You can go for upside with a rising star (A.J. Brown, DJ Chark, D.J. Moore) or stick with a veteran option (T.Y. Hilton, Robert Woods) who isn’t as exciting but provides more stability. You can wait even longer for your WR2 and still go the up-and-coming route (DK Metcalf, Terry McLaurin) or simply opt for a proven big-play guy (Will Fuller V, Brandin Cooks). 

Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker | Superflex | Top 200

From there, you can grab some veteran possession types (Golden Tate, Jamison Crowder) or go for more young, boom-or-bust sleepers (Mecole Hardman, Henry Ruggs III). Ideally, you have a mix of all of the above, even in standard leagues, but you shouldn’t rely too much on young receivers. When they hit, it’s great, but the bust risk is high, especially early in the season. Taking some proven commodities — no matter how boring they may be — can go a long way in solidifying your lineup.

We know things will be more volatile than ever this season, so having a few old reliables certainly won’t hurt. Balancing targets with upside is the key to having a successful receiving corps.
