Top 10 Fantasy Wide Receivers

Ed Szczepanski-USA TODAY Sports

10. Emmanuel Sanders, Denver Broncos

The Broncos are still deciding who is going to start for them at quarterback. But the system will still work for receivers, as the play action should keep the field open. The team will also most likely rely on short passes with the unproven passers. This will allow Sanders to rack up catches and RAC. This makes him extra valuable in PPR leagues. He will also rack up yards to get you points. He will be a steal in the 5th or 6th round.

9. Jarvis Landry, Miami Dolphins

Landry had a solid season last year. Now with Coach Gase running the offense, he should rack up even more catches in his pass happy offense. He also is a solid downfield option which will allow him to get long touchdowns. Gase also likes to run the ball, which will open up the field for him. He can be a solid pick in the 3rd or 4th round.

8. AJ Green, Cincinnati Bengals 

Green was very inconsistent in the fantasy world last year. But his ability to put up huge numbers keeps him in the top 10 here. He also will be healthy this year, adding to the possibility that he could be more consistent. Green can be a solid pickup in the 3rd or 4th rounds.

7. Demaryius Thomas, Denver Broncos 

Thomas should have the same style of success as Sanders with his new quarterback. Thomas has serious speed which will allow him to pile up yards. He is also a more solid red zone threat, which will allow him to get touchdowns on the goal line. He will be a solid pick in the 3rd or 4th rounds.

6. Odell Beckham Jr, New York Giants 

ODB has been a sensation throughout his first couple years. He is also valuable as a consistent performer. He racks up catches and yards every week. With the offensive coordinator becoming the head coach, ODB will continue to be the center of the offense. This will allow him to continue to perform. He would be a great pick in the 2nd or 3rd rounds.

5. Brandon Marshall, New York Jets

Brandon Marshall is a PPR league machine. His strength allows him to rack up catches every game. No matter how bad his quarterback has been, Marshall has always been able to rack up catches. He also is the ultimate red zone threat. This will allow him to vulture touchdowns at the goal line. He is a good 1st or 2nd round pick.

4. Allen Robinson, Jacksonville Jaguars 

Robinson racks up yards like no other. He does not hold the best value in PPR leagues as the vertical passing game of the Jaguars does not offer a ton of catches as he is a big play receiver. But he offers lots of points in touchdowns and yards. He was very consistent in those categories, allowing him to be this high on the list. He is a solid 1st or 2nd round pick.

3. Deandre Hopkins, Houston Texans 

Hopkins is great in any league as he racks up catches, yards, and touchdowns. He is a great downfield option while also showing the strength to catch short passes over the middle. With a solid quarterback, he should have an even better year. This will also happen due to a beeter running back taking pressure off of the passing game. He is a definite 1st round pick.

2. Julio Jones, Atlanta Falcons 

Jones is a freak of nature on the field. He has the size of a red zone threat while also having the speed to excel in the RAC category. He is Matt Ryan's favorite target and will have less coverage with the addition of Mohammed Sanu. This will allow him to get more points and stay healthy throughout the year. He is a definite 1st round pick.

1. Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh Steelers 

Antonio Brown is at the center of the Steelers offense. He also cosistently gets tons of catches and yards. He is a beast at catching short passes and turning them into big plays. He is the ultimate fantasy receiver. He is an early 1st rounder for sure.
