Fantasy Football Cheat Sheet: Wide Receiver Rankings 2018

Can Odell Beckham Jr. bounce back and be an elite WR1 once again?

Julian EdelmanChange is the appropriate term to describe the wide receiver position as it relates to fantasy football for the 2018 season. The elite guys (Antonio Brown, DeAndre Hopkins, Odell Beckham Jr., Julio Jones) are in familiar surroundings, both in terms of teams and their positioning atop the wide receiver rankings, but there are plenty of old faces in new places around them.

 

Between free agency and trades, Allen Robinson, Michael Crabtree, Sammy Watkins, Brandin Cooks and Jarvis Landry are the big names that changed teams this offseason. How these guys fare with their new teams remains to be seen but for the time being they are all in the top 30.

 

Elsewhere at the position, there's no doubt that Julian Edelman's pending four-game suspension will impact him, but how far will he fall in fantasy drafts? And will free agent Dez Bryant have any fantasy relevance by the time the season starts?

 

These are just some of the questions that will hopefully be answered before Week 1 arrives. Until then, here are some wide receiver rankings to help you get ready for your upcoming draft.
