College Fantasy Football 2018 Wide Receiver Rankings

West Virginia Mountaineers WR David Sills

West Virginia Mountaineers WR David Sills

Ole Miss Rebels WR A.J. Brown

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.

Athlon Sports has teamed up with contributor and resident college fantasy football expert Mike Bainbridge to help you prepare for the upcoming college fantasy football draft season with our positional rankings. Below is the scoring system used for these positional rankings.
