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 after the NFL Draft. I will then update the rankings before the start of the 2021 regular season and again midway through the season.

COMMENTS
  A.J. Brown, TEN: Possible departures of Corey Davis/Jonnu Smith could open door for true WR1 usage.

  Michael Thomas, NO: Hard to imagine Thomas returning to 120-catch form in Taysom Hill-led offense.

  Diontae Johnson, PIT: Only question now is if Big Ben's successor will be up to the task.

  Tee Higgins, CIN: Showed strong chemistry with Joe Burrow prior to the No.1 overall pick getting hurt.

  Chase Claypool, PIT: Needs Big Ben's successor to be up to the task just as much as Diontae Johnson does.

  Julio Jones, ATL: Seems awful low for such a good player, but age and durability are starting to become concerns.

  Deebo Samuel, SF: Playing style makes him fun to watch but will likely always make it hard to depend on him week after week.

  D.J. Chark, JAC: Should thrive in offense (likely) led by Trevor Lawrence.

  Laviska Shenault, JAC: Urban Meyer's college offenses always found a place for versatile chess pieces like Shenault.

  Will Fuller, FA: Lack of durability, Deshaun Watson's status and potential departure from Houston make him a risky investment.

  Parris Campbell, IND: Still very much a dynasty asset with huge upside despite injury-plagued first two seasons.

  Gabriel Davis, BUF: John Brown's expected release could lead to roughly 100 targets in 2021.

  Henry Ruggs III, LV: GM chalked disappointing rookie year up to lack of strength and substandard NFL route-running.

  Van Jefferson, LAR: Poised to take over Josh Reynolds' old role; strong route-running could lead to bigger role than Reynolds had.
