Fantasy Football Top 10 WR Picks & Sleepers

The NFL season is just around the corner so that means Fantasy Football is here so I'm going to break down some of the top Wide Receivers to draft for your season long team and some sleepers to look out for. I typically play in a PPR (Point Per Reception) leagues.

1. Antonio Brown, Steelers 

In 2017 Brown posted at least 100 catches for the fifth straight season, led the NFL with 1,533 yards, and averaged a career-best 15.2 yards per catch. The crazy part he did all that in 14 games, I expect the same or better from him this year overall my number one wide receiver. 

2. Julio Jones, Falcons

Jones by far one of the most physically gifted receivers in the NFL last year he had a bit of a disappointing season only catching three touchdowns and scoring just two games. Highly unlikely that will repeat again this year. Hoping all goes well with Matt Ryan in Steve Sarkisian's offense we should see Jones put up the big numbers we are use to seeing from him.

3. Odell Beckham Jr., Giants  

Can you say show me the money? OBJ and the Giants agreed on a record 5-year, $95 million contract. Last year, Beckham was off to another solid start last season and was well on his way to posting another 1,000-plus yard and 10-plus touchdown campaign. In Week 5, he fractured his ankle was placed on IR shortly after, ending his season. With fully recovery and a fat contract looking to see OBJ make it rain when it comes to fantasy points. 

4. DeAndre Hopkins, Texans

Coming off his best season in the 2017 season posting 13 touchdowns and 2,243 receiving yards. he gets a chance to play a full season with Watson, who only made six starts before an ACL tear prematurely ended his season in Week 9, Hopkins could do even better and will certainly be a legitimate WR1 this season.

5. Michael Thomas, Saints

Having Drew Brees at the helm, it’s safe to assume that Thomas will be one of the better receivers in the league. n 2017, Thomas quietly improved on a stellar rookie season, raising his catch total from 92 to 104 and his receiving yardage from 1,137 to 1,245.

6. AJ Green, Bengals 

In 2017 AJ Green was a best in the red zone, he caught seven-of-19 targets, six of which went for touchdowns. Since coming into the NFL, Green has been targeted by Andy Dalton 949 times in 102 games. That’s an average of 9.3 per game. Green figures to once again be the focal point of the Cincinnati offense.

7. Keenan Allen, Chargers

Having Phillip Rivers as your QB you know one thing he likes to throw the ball a lot. Rivers loves throwing his way and Allen will likely see a number comparable to the 159 targets he saw last year. llen is a bit of a risk from the health perspective, but his high level of production and Rivers’s penchant for targeting him in the red zone is too good to pass on.

8. Mike Evans, Buccaneers 

Evans is a player that likes to put up big stats especially when it comes to his Receiving yards. In four NFL seasons, Evans has never once failed to eclipse 1,000 yards. The only factor that makes him a major make-or-break player is his touchdown totals. In four years, his total touchdowns per year are as follows: 12, 3, 12, 5. Though his lack of TD's he did see at least 10 red zone targets, he will have a good chance to improve his fluky low touchdowns.

9. Davante Adams, Packers 

Without Jordy Nelson no longer with the Packers Adams becomes the WR1. The last two seasons have proven that notion wrong. Last year, Adams became Aaron Rodgers’ top target and was a red-zone threat, seeing 24 targets inside the 20, which tied for fourth best in the NFL. With Rodgers back and healthy, Adams will have a chance to eclipse 1,000 receiving yards for the first time in his career and be a major touchdown threat.

10. Tyreek Hill, Chiefs 

TyFREAK Hill is fun to watch the speedy receiver he is known for being, Hill became a true No. 1 downfield threat, amassing 1,183 yards and seven scores, and he should continue to improve in 2018. Hill is an explosive playmaker who can do damage in a multitude of ways, and with a strong-armed quarterback like Patrick Mahomes now taking over as the starter expect Hill to put big fantasy points this year.
