Considerations for WR
  • Talent
  • Three years of solid (or better) production remaining
  • Age
  • Durability
  • Proven consistency
  • Age/skill of supporting cast
  • Coaching/scheme stability/situation
These rankings are for PPR leagues, where each touchdown is worth six points. I will release my next set of rankings before the start of the 2018 regular season. Players with an up arrow are those that moved up eight or more spots from my previous set of rankings. Likewise, a down arrow represents a drop of eight or more spots.

COMMENTS
  Odell Beckham Jr., NYG: Supporting cast good enough that defenses may not be able to tilt coverage in his direction anymore.

  Davante Adams, GB: Release of Jordy Nelson solidifies him as primary target in passing game.

  Amari Cooper, OAK: HC Jon Gruden expects to build passing game around him.

  Stefon Diggs, MIN: Durability only thing holding him back from being a star.

  Sammy Watkins, KC: Like Hill above, KC is a match made in heaven with strong-armed Mahomes under center.

  Jarvis Landry, CLE: Suddenly loaded supporting cast in Cleveland limits likelihood of extreme volume.

  Josh Gordon, CLE: Obviously no guarantee he'll ever consistently find the form he had in 2013.

  DeVante Parker, MIA: Still worth taking a chance on; flashed early last season before getting hurt (again).

  Sterling Shepard, NYG: Possible fourth man in pecking order now.

  Michael Gallup, DAL: Landed in great spot as likely Dez Bryant successor, but will offense ever give him enough targets?

  Christian Kirk, ARI: The heavy favorite to take over as the Cards' lead receiver in 2019.

  Courtland Sutton, DEN: Huge upside and could replace Demaryius Thomas as early as 2019, but he has plenty of room to improve.

  DeSean Jackson, TB: QB has been adament about involving him in 2018.

John Ross, CIN: A worthy buy-low target; Bengals aren't going to give up quickly after spending a top-10 pick on him.

  Randall Cobb, GB: Is a bounce-back in store? Cobb has more chemistry with his QB than any of the youngsters.

  Kenny Golladay, DET: His time is coming; gives the Lions' offense a size-speed dimension it doesn't otherwise have.

  Paul Richardson, WAS: If he can stay healthy again, he could easily shoot past Doctson as preferred downfield threat.

  Antonio Callaway, CLE: Drafting him will require patience, but he's worth a gamble in the late second round of rookie drafts.

Allen Hurns, DAL: Could be the Cowboys' WR1 to begin 2018.
