Unlike quarterback and running back, there is very little consensus as to who the top wide receiver will be in college fantasy football in 2018. That is not to say there isn’t top-end talent at the position this year, but the player who sits atop the rankings isn’t as clear cut as it has been in seasons past.
With that being said, if we were breaking into tiers, three would stand out over the others heading into this year with West Virginia’s David Sills, Buffalo’s Anthony Johnson and Ole Miss' A.J. Brown looking like the top options.
