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. I will release my next set of rankings before the start of the 2021 regular season. Players with an up arrow are those that moved up eight or more spots from my previous set of rankings in March. Likewise, a down arrow represents a drop of eight or more spots.

COMMENTS
  A.J. Brown, TEN: Virtually everything pointing in the direction of massive volume in 2021.

  Justin Jefferson, MIN: Improved defense, new OC among obstacles that could curtail big production in 2021.

  DeAndre Hopkins, ARI: Seems ridiculously low for such a stud, but age is starting to become a concern for long-term outlook.

  Michael Thomas, NO: How much of an impact will transition to Jameis Winston/Taysom Hill have on him?

  Diontae Johnson, PIT: The sooner Pittsburgh can find Big Ben's successor, the sooner Johnson becomes a top 10 staple.

  Kenny Golladay, NYG: How much of a drop-off is there from Matthew Stafford to Daniel Jones?

  Brandon Aiyuk, SF: Disappointing sophomore season a possibility if Deebo Samuel and George Kittle stay healthy.

  Robby Anderson, CAR: Strong possibility that reunion with Sam Darnold means more downfield looks and red zone targets.

  Denzel Mims, NYJ: Addition of strong-armed Zach Wilson should only enhance second-year WR's vertical game.

Josh Palmer, LAC: Don't expect much of a Year 1 impact, but he figures to serve as Keenan Allen's long-term sidekick.

  Jakobi Meyers, NE: Retirement of Julian Edelman could allow him to become primary slot option.

Tre'Quan Smith, NO: Move to Winston/Hill should theoretically open up vertical passing game.
