Considerations for WR
  • Talent
  • Three years of solid (or better) production remaining
  • Age
  • Durability
  • Proven consistency
  • Age/skill of supporting cast
  • Coaching/scheme stability/situation
These rankings are for PPR leagues, where each touchdown is worth six points. I will release my next set of rankings after the NFL Draft. I will then update the rankings before the start of the 2018 regular season and again midway through the season.

COMMENTS
  DeAndre Hopkins, HOU: Physical WR took his game to another level in 2017; revolving door at QB has seemingly been solved.

  Odell Beckham Jr., NYG: Uncertainty at QB keeps him out of the top spot.

  Mike Evans, TB: Hard to drop such a physical freak too far, especially one with his statistical upside.

  Tyreek Hill, KC: Transition from Smith to Mahomes should be a match made in heaven for this speedster.

  Julio Jones, ATL: Ridiculously poor red zone efficiency contributed greatly to low TD total in 2017.

  Davante Adams, GB: Appears to be on the verge of replacing Nelson as top WR in Green Bay (if he's not already there).

  T.Y. Hilton, IND: Needs a healthy Andrew Luck to be considered a top 10 WR. Otherwise, mid-Tier 4 is most likely his speed.

  Stefon Diggs, MIN: Entering contract year; shows glimpses of becoming dominant receiver but struggles to stay healthy.

  Jarvis Landry, FA: Best move may be to leave Miami; 8.8 YPC in 2017 is inexcusable for any WR who is a 100-catch threat.

  Corey Davis, TEN: Injury-plagued rookie figures to have better luck in 2018 with more imaginative play-caller.

  Robert Woods, LAR: Emerged as unlikely favorite target in LA and appears capable of holding that title.

  JuJu Smith-Schuster, PIT: Not a fan of his athetic profile but playing with "Killer B's" will keep defenses from focusing on him.

  Sammy Watkins, FA: Not going to hold late arrival to Rams against him; still a supreme young talent.

  Josh Gordon, CLE: If he has truly kicked his off-field problems to the curb, a return to the top 10 is not impossible.

  Cooper Kupp, LAR: Innate feel for getting open; should carve out a 10-year career in the slot.

  Will Fuller, HOU: Formed immediate connection with Deshaun Watson, although durability has been a problem.

  Kelvin Benjamin, BUF: New starting QB could cause ranking to rise/fall 10 spots either way.

  Nelson Agholor, PHI: Found his home in the slot in 2017.

  Dez Bryant, DAL: Prescott doesn't trust him on 50-50 balls like Tony Romo did, taking away the best part of his game.

  Mike Williams, LAC: Even if his back is no longer a problem, Allen figures to be Rivers' top option for the foreseeable future.

  Jamison Crowder, WAS: Ability to create separation quickly should allow him to hold off Doctson as Alex Smith's No. 1 WR.

  Pierre Garcon, SF: Age is becoming a concern, but he should have no problem becoming fast friends with Garoppolo.

  Jordy Nelson, GB: This feels way too low for Nelson, but age would suggest he only has 1-2 "good" years left.

  John Ross, CIN: Extremely talented but injury-prone rookie will get another chance to make a first impression in 2018.

  Cameron Meredith, CHI: Knee injury needs to check out and he may have to play second-fiddle to incoming rookie.

  Josh Doctson, WAS: Alex Smith's risk-averse ways not a good fit for 50-50 ball specialist.

  Corey Coleman, CLE: Injury-prone WR could be on the block this offseason.

  Marquise Goodwin, SF: Highly impressive finish to 2017; will he remain Garoppolo's favoirte target with Garcon healthy?

  Chris Godwin, TB: Shined in limited opportunities as rookie; could convince Bucs to cut bait D-Jax in 2018 or 2019.

  Curtis Samuel, CAR: Panthers hope 2018 proves why they were willing to trade Benjamin in order to free up more time for him.

  Larry Fitzgerald, ARI: With his work ethic, probably capable of two more 100-catch seasons IF he chooses to keep playing.

  Jeremy Maclin, BAL: Barely practiced with Ravens during the season; are his days of being a lead WR over?

  Josh Reynolds, LAR: Stock will skyrocket if Rams don't bring back Watkins.

  Mack Hollins, PHI: Could overtake Torrey Smith as early as 2018.

  Quincy Enunwa, NYJ: Can he recover from devastating neck injury?
