2016 Fantasy Football Wide Receiver Rankings
The wide receiver talent pool keeps getting deeper and deeper. For those of you who switched up tactics in your drafts this year you may have noticed that going RB in the first round would still allow you to amass an embarrassment of riches at wide receiver while studding out the RB1 slot.
We have counted no less than seventy receivers with some sort of fantasy relevance whether it be as a starter, a flex option, a bye week filler, upside stash or deep league special.
We tried our best to prognosticate how we expect things will all turn out.
Amari Cooper finishes the season as a WR1.
Donte Moncrief closes the season as an every week WR1 and as one of the top dynasty league and redraft options for 2017.
Davante Parker finishes as the Dolphins most productive fantasy receiver.
John Brown finishes as the Cardinals most productive fantasy receiver.
Josh Gordon still ranks as a top-25 receiver despite missing four games.
Sam Bradford somehow makes Stefon Diggs and Laquon Treadwell weekly options despite an AP-centric offense.
This list will be comprised of names we expect to outperform their ADP and you can refer to the rankings below for our thoughts on each of the mentioned players. Demaryius Thomas, Donte Moncrief, John Brown, Mike Wallace, Davante Parker, Eli Rogers, Jordan Matthews, Josh Gordon, Sterling Shepard, Stefon Diggs and Andre Johnson
Not on my team:
Players that will not be found on any of our redraft teams this year include Dez Bryant, Markus Wheaton, Allen Robinson, Sammy Watkins, Julian Edelman, TY Hilton, Jarvis Landry, Emmanuel Sanders, Doug Baldwin and Tavon Austin. This is not to say we don’t think they will all have good seasons just that the ADP does not justify the price tag ADP wise.
