Considerations for WR
  • Talent
  • Three years of solid (or better) production remaining
  • Age of player
  • 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 and then update the rankings again before the start of the 2017 regular season.

COMMENTS
  Odell Beckham Jr., NYG: Ridiculously high floor and ceiling; production could drop off a bit with so many weapons in NY now.

  Mike Evans, TB: Mostly balanced offense is about the only thing keeping him from being No. 1.

  A.J. Green, CIN: Does John Ross' arrival send Green back to inconsistent WR1 with nice-looking year-end numbers?

  Amari Cooper, OAK: Michael Crabtree isn't going to steal his glory much longer; TDs could spike this year w/ better running game.

  Michael Thomas, NO: Departure of Brandin Cooks makes this second-year pro a good bet to at least match rookie season.

  Brandin Cooks, NE: Pats' history when they trade for a veteran receiver (i.e. Welker, Moss) is pretty solid.

  Dez Bryant, DAL: Still as good as any WR in the league at finding the end zone.

  Sammy Watkins, BUF: Combination of injuries/misuse have led to highly inconsistent production.

  Jarvis Landry, MIA: Walk-year WR only stands to benefit if DeVante Parker stays healthy and steps up.

  Terrelle Pryor, WAS: Very good bet to blow 2016 numbers out of the water with above-average QB slinging him the ball.

  Alshon Jeffery, PHI: Change of address doesn't figure to change injury history. Could disappoint if offense doesn't open up.

John Ross, CIN: Durability is by far his biggest concern; DeSean Jackson comps should be his floor, not ceiling.

John Brown, ARI: Cards believe they have found source of health issue; stock skyrockets if he can stay healthy.

Zay Jones, BUF: Could be one year away from being Buffalo's top WR w/ Watkins entering his walk year.

Curtis Samuel, CAR: Should start out as Ted Ginn replacement and could have Tyreek Hill-like rookie-year impact.

Kelvin Benjamin, CAR: Awful hard to trust if weight is going to continue being an issue.

  Cameron Meredith, CHI: Hard to ignore what former UDFA did with replacement-level quarterbacking when given his shot.

  Jamison Crowder, WAS: Dark-horse candidate for 1,000-plus yards in 2017.

  DeSean Jackson, TB: Move to Tampa to be Mike Evans' sidekick likely extended his fantasy usefulness a year or two.

Tyrell Williams, LAC: Won't completely fall off the grid, but addition of Mike Williams puts him in dicey dynasty spot for now.

Martavis Bryant, PIT: Probably 20 spots too low if he stays out of trouble and 20 spots too high if he doesn't.

  Breshad Perriman, BAL: Baltimore's less-refined version of Sammy Watkins; probably still a year away from passing Mike Wallace.

  Adam Thielen, MIN: Hard to see him matching his 2016 production, but what exactly have Miichael Floyd/Laquon Treadwell shown?

  Laquon Treadwell, MIN: WAY too early to give up hope as he fell behind early due to injury, although he has more competition this year.

  Kevin White, CHI: Despite his proneness to injury, still worth pursuing considering the gap between his talent and his currrent cost.

Cooper Kupp, LAR: Could be HC Sean McVay's new Jamison Crowder; better talent who should see heavy volume right away.

  Larry Fitzgerald, ARI: May be entering his swan-song season, but a third straight 100-catch season seem entirely possible.

Will Fuller, HOU: Deshaun Watson not a great deep thrower, so Fuller may need some time to adjust.

Pierre Garcon, SF: Kyle Shanahan's offense may lead to one or two high-end WR2 seasons, but age is working against him.

Brandon Marshall, NYG: Battled injury in 2016, will now be clear No. 2 WR for first time in his career.

ArDarius Stewart, NYJ: Should earn fans right away with his physicality; could emerge as Jets' top WR as early as 2018.

JuJu Smith-Schuster, PIT: Great landing spot, but how long does he have with Big Ben?

Malcolm Mitchell, NE: Solid 2016 rookie faces uncertain future with so many mouths to feed.

Tavon Austin, LAR: McVay hopes Austin can become his new DeSean Jackson.

Chad Williams, ARI: OC believes this rookie will be Larry Fitzgerald's successor.
