"These Wide Receivers will carry your football team plain and simple." "These Running backs will carry your football team plain and simple."
1. Antonio Brown - Pittsburgh Steelers 1. Antonio Brown - Pittsburgh Steelers
2.DeAndre Hopkins - Houston Texans - Watson knows how to find him and he may be the #1 WR due to this. 2. Odell Beckham Jr - New York Giants
3. Odell Beckham Jr - New York Giants 3. DeAndre Hopkins - Houston Texans - What a difference a year makes! This time last season as I scrolled through Twitter (@CPGMHeadley) I saw numerous Anti-Nuk takes. “Look at what he did in 2016” “He only balls when he gets X amount of targets.” “The analytics says he will be overdrafted” on and on more dirt was thrown on Hopkins. Got to recognize a beast when you see one. Hopkins has consistently put up numbers with any quarterback you throw out there except for the incomparable Brock Osweiler. DeShaun Watson is miles ahead of Brock and loves to put the ball up to the best high point body control receiver in the league, NUUUK!
"This set it of receivers can carry your team just not to the level of the tier above them, a few more targets can change this for the better." "This set it of backs can carry your team just not to the level of the tier above them, a few more carries/catches can change this for the better."
4. Julio Jones - Atlanta Falcons 4. Julio Jones - Atlanta Falcons
5. Davante Adams - Green Bay Packers - I talked greasy about him last year so I won’t doubt him this year. Back to back 10+ Td seasons… Oh Rodgers back.!!! 5. Keenan Allen - Los Angeles Chargers
6. Keenan Allen - Los Angeles Chargers 6. Michael Thomas - New Orleans Saints
7. Michael Thomas - New Orleans Saints 7. Davante Adams - Green Bay Packers
8. Mike Evans - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 8. AJ Green - Cincinnati Bengals
9. AJ Green - Cincinnati Bengals - 85 catches, 1200 yards 9 Tds. You know what you're getting with him there is no mistake. If he had a better QB Green would be in the elite tier easily. 9. Mike Evans - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
10. T.Y. Hilton - Indianapolis Colts 10. Doug Baldwin - Seattle Seahawks - Has there been any receiver more consistent and reliable than Doug Baldwin? Of course Antonio Brown and Julio Jones come to mind but Baldwin goes under the radar season after season. Baldwin has caught the 2nd most touchdowns over the last 3 seasons and will be a target monster once again in an offense that loss last season’s number two and number three options in the passing game to free agency.
11. Adam Thielen - Minnesota Vikings
12. T.Y. Hilton - Indianapolis Colts
"This level of Wide Receiver is on the cusp of the "Elite" & "Supers" tiers and can carry your team a few times per season."
11. Amari Cooper - Oakland Raiders - Rebound year under Gruden! 13. Josh Gordon - Cleveland Browns - Gordon’s talent suggests next level player but all his previous off-season troubles makes him a high risk high reward player. The glimpse of Gordon we saw last year was reminiscent to his 2013 breakout campaign as he was in terrific shape and looked just as explosive. Now with an additional year to wipe some rust off, its go time for Gordon. His new tag team partner Jarvis Landry will help free up coverage for Gordon to take advantage of opposing defensive backs.
12. Josh Gordon - Cleveland Browns - Top 12 WR... @ ME! 14. Tyreek Hill - Kansas City Chiefs
13. Golden Tate - Detroit Lions 15. Stefon Diggs - Minnesota Vikings
14. Doug Baldwin - Seattle Seahawks 16. Amari Cooper - Oakland Raiders
15. Jarvis Landry - Cleveland Bronws 17. Larry Fitzgerald - Arizona Cardinals
16. Brandin Cooks - Los Angeles Rams 18. Golden Tate - Detroit Lions
17. Adam Thielen - Minnesota Vikings 19. Jarvis Landry - Cleveland Browns
18. Larry Fitzgerald - Arizona Cardinals
"You have seen the potential or at the very least a glimpse."
19.Ju Ju S mith-Schuster - Pittsburgh Steelers 20. Ju Ju Smith-Schuster - Pittsburgh Steelers
20. Cooper Kupp - Los Angeles Rams 21. Demaryius Thomas - Denver Broncos
21. DJ Moore - Carolina Panthers - He is the missing piece that Newton has needed for years and a nice complement to Funchess. He is a RB when the ball is in his hands and in the open field. By season's end his new name may be "YAC". 22. Marvin Jones - Detroit Lions
22. Sammy Watkins - Kansas City Chiefs - Finally he will be the player he was drafted to be from an X’s and O’s and fantasy standpoint. Reid knows how to use players of this caliber properly. 23. Alshon Jeffery - Philadelphia Eagles
23. Tyreek Hill - Kansas City Chiefs - The addition of Watkins opens things up for Hill. Who do teams key on? Hunt, Hill, Watkins, or Kelce? 24. Brandin Cooks - Los Angeles Rams
24. Stefon Diggs - Minnesota Vikings 25. Sammy Watkins - Kansas City Chiefs - For those of you who have given up on Watkins as a fantasy asset, hold up and hear me out. The situation with L.A. last season pigeonholed Watkins to the outside deep threat X receiver that cleared up Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp to eat underneath. While Watkins is a legitimate deep threat, he is at his best with the ball in his hands running after the catch. All reports from Kansas City has Watkins playing all over the field at multiple receiver positions which bodes well for his fantasy production. Coach Andy Reid has a plan for Watkins that will get him the ball early and often. #SleeperAlert
25. Emmanuel Sanders - Denver Broncos 26. Robert Woods - Los Angeles Rams
26. Marvin Jones - Detroit Lions 27. Allen Robinson II - Chicago Bears
27. Demaryius Thomas - Denver Broncos 28.Emmanuel Sanders - Denver Broncos
28. Corey Davis - Tennessee Titans 29. Pierre Garcon - San Francisco 49ers
29. Sterling Shepard - New York Giants - Super high on him coming out and just want a lil more info. Updated rankings I’d imagine I'm going to move him one way or the other come training camp. 30. Devin Funchess - Carolina Panthers
30. Pierre Garcon - San Francisco 49ers 31. Jamison Crowder - Washington Redskins
31. Robert Woods - Los Angeles Rams 32. Cooper Kupp - Los Angeles Rams
32. Jamison Crowder - Washington Redskins
33. Anthony Miller - Chicago Bears - The closest thing to Steve Smith Sr. in the league.
34. Chris Godwin - Tampa Bay Buccaneers - The #2 WR on the team, who can play all the WR positions. My top Sleeper!!!
35. DJ Chark - Jacksonville Jaguars - Criminally underused at LSU. Has the size, speed and athleticism to be special. Plays in an offense that takes its shots down field with play action.
36. Calvin Ridley - Atlanta Falcons - Who you got? Ridley or Sanu? You know who I got. SO MUCH TALENT under this hood!
"You know what you are getting all-be-it nothing special."
37. Chris Hogan - New England Patriots 33. Will Fuller - Houston Texans - We saw what a healthy Deshaun Watson did for all the Texans pass catchers but a healthy Watson is most vital for the fantasy production of Fuller. Hopkins balls with any quarterback but Fuller needs the athletic deep play threat of Watson to give him a chance streaking down the field. No guts no glory! Fuller is the prototypical deep threat big play receiver in the NFL which could frustrate fantasy owners because of the boom or bust nature. The touchdown rate of scoring on 25% of his catches will come down but if healthy Fuller has the potential to be a solid WR3 with WR2 upside.
38. Jordan Matthews - New England Patriots 34. Corey Davis - Tennessee Titans
39. Robby Anderson - New York Jets - Garbage time is a beautiful thing! 35. Chris Hogan - New England Patriots
40. Allen Robinson II - Chicago Bears 36. DeVante Parker - Miami Dolphins
41. Alshon Jeffery - Philadelphia Eagles 37. Michael Crabtree - Baltimore Ravens
42. DeVante Parker - Miami Dolphins 38. Robby Anderson - New York Jets
43. Michael Gallup - Dallas Cowboys 39. Julian Edelman - New England Patriots
44. Josh Doctson - Washintgton Redskins
45. Marquise Goodwin - San Francisco 49ers
46. Mohamed Sanu - Atlanta Falcons
47. Martavis Bryant - Oakland Raiders
"This set of wide receivers typically meet or fall just shy of their projections"
48. Nelson Agholor - Philadelphia Eagles 40. Dez Bryant - FA
49. Courtland Sutton - Denver Broncos 41. Rishard Matthews - Tennessee Titans
50. Tre Quan Smith - New Orleans Saints 42. Sterling Shepard - New York Giants
51. Dez Bryant - FA 43. Calvin Ridley - Atlanta Falcons - Ridley fits nicely in my complement tier as he is the perfect complement to Julio Jones in the Falcons offense. The Falcons explosive offense will give Ridley one on one opportunities due to #11 getting all the attention from opposing defenses. My esteemed colleague CPGM Juice predicted that Ridley leads the Falcons in touchdowns his rookie season and I’m rolling. Out of all the rookie wide receivers in the 2018 class, Ridley is in the best situation to be a fantasy force out of the gates.
44. Randall Cobb - Green Bay Packers
45. Nelson Agholor - Philadelphia Eagles
46. DJ Moore - Carolina Panthers
47. Kenny Stills - Miami Dolphins
48. Marqise Lee - Jacksonville Jaguars
"It's just what it sounds like...Just wanna see more..."
52. Michael Crabtree - Baltimore Ravens - Only WR on the roster of note. 49. Jordy Nelson - Oakland Raiders
53. Devin Funchess - Carolina Panthers 50. Josh Doctson - Washintgton Redskins - Doctson has dealt with injuries throughout his brief career and could put it all together to claim the Redskins number one option. He is a big play high point beast that can get in the end zone if new QB Alex Smith gives him a chance.
54. DeSean Jackon - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 51. Cameron Meredith - New Orleans Saints
55. Tyrell Williams - Los Angeles Chargers 52. Michael Gallup - Dallas Cowboys
56. Kenny Golladay - Detroit Lions 53. Mohamed Sanu - Atlanta Falcons
57. Paul Richardson - Washington Redskins - Will he be what Pryor was supposed to be? 54. Marquise Goodwin - San Francisco 49ers
55. Kenny Golladay - Detroit Lions - Golladay enters his second season with the same amount of hype he was receiving in his rookie year. Golden Tate and Marvin Jones are still in front of him in the targets pecking order and the Lions plan to be more committed to the run with their new regime but there's too much talent here not to take a flier on Golladay in the later rounds.
56. Martavis Bryant - Oakland Raiders - Bryant switch teams as the Steelers traded him to the Raiders after having a disgruntled season a year ago. No Michael Crabtree and a healthy Derek Carr is intriguing if Bryant doesn’t smoke himself out of the league.
57. Anthony Miller - Chicago Bears
58. Paul Richardson - Washington Redskins
"Late round fliers and watch list candidates."
58. Zay Jones - Bufflalo Bills 59. Mike Williams - Los Angeles Chargers - Got to get my guy Big Mike Williams in my rankings. Another young receiver crippled by the injury bug. Keenan Allen is the alpha dog and Tyrell Williams is a solid number 2 receiver but the injury to Hunter Henry opens up an opportunity (especially in the red zone) for Williams to thrive. I honestly believe Mike Williams can supplant Tyrell Williams as the second option in their passing offense and be that guy we saw at Clemson.
59. Terrelle Pryor - New York Jets 60. Tyler Lockett - Seattle Seahawks
60. Danny Amendola - Miami Dolphins
