Wide receiver seems to be getting deeper as a position each and every fantasy football season. This year is no different, but there also is no doubt about the elite targets being elite.
Drop-off when it comes to production and/or projections happens quickly, so snagging a top-15 wide receiver should be a must this season, depending on your league format. There is more upside and depth as you move down the rankings, but with that comes question marks and doubt.
Players in new uniforms such as Brandin Cooks and Terrelle Pryor should be in good spots, but in Cook’s case is he in a better situation in New England compared to New Orleans sharing targets with the lines of Rob Gronkowski, Julian Edelman and others?
Only time will tell, but for now here are some wide receiver rankings to help you get ready for your upcoming draft.
