2019 Wide Receiver Fantasy Football Rankings

Contents

With the majority of offense in the league becoming more vertical, wide receivers have played a more important role than ever before. Picking the right wide receivers is what can make or break a season, so make sure you choose wisely. A lot of things need to be taken into account when making your choice, such as who’s throwing them the ball and what offensive system they’re in. To help point you in the right direction, here are the top 64 wide receivers for fantasy football next season.

Tier One: The Best of the Best

1. Deandre Hopkins, Houston Texans

Deandre Hopkins has consistently been one of the best receivers in football despite having to deal with shoddy quarterback play for much of his career. With a full season of Deshaun Watson last year, Hopkins had a career best season. With yet another summer to build their chemistry, expect Hopkins to once again be one of the top options at wide receiver for fantasy football.

2. Julio Jones, Atlanta Falcons

Julio Jones broke out of the bizarre touchdown slump he was having last season, and once again put up ridiculous amounts of production. Despite turning 30 in the offseason, it would be unwise to count on his production to decrease. Jones has played with Matt Ryan his entire career, so their chemistry together is something you can bank on. Expect Julio Jones to be one of the best and most coveted wide receivers for fantasy next season.

3. Davante Adams, Green Bay Packers

Davante Adams has always been an underrated, under the radar receiver but he broke out big last season. Despite one of the roughest Packers season in recent history, Davante still delivered week in and week out. Aaron Rodgers isn’t going anywhere, so you better believe Davante won’t be either. With a new, more innovative offensive system in place, it’s possible Adams soars to even higher heights than he did last year.

4. Michael Thomas, New Orleans Saints

Michael Thomas has been one of the best wide receivers ever since he came into the league, and last year was no exception. Posting career highs in both receptions and yardage, Thomas solidified himself into the elite status of receivers. Thomas has had the benefit of playing with Brees his whole career, and still just 26, he’s shown no signs of slowing down. As the receiver the Saints might finally be willing to pay, Thomas will be one of the best receivers in Fantasy.

5. Juju Smith-Schuster, Pittsburgh Steelers

Juju Smith-Schuster has been one of the most entertaining players in the NFL ever since he came into the league, but last year he proved he was one of the best as well. With Antonio brown and Le’veon Bell officially gone, Juju should only get more touches. Although he’ll face more pressure and than he ever has this season, it’d still be a mistake to bet against one of the brightest young stars in the league. The only question fantasy players should be asking this season is how high Juju’s ceiling is.

6. Odell Beckham Jr., Cleveland Browns

Despite an acrimonious exit from the Giants, Odell Beckham Jr. remains one of the most talented receivers in the league. It’s also reasonable to think that next season might be a career year for him. Having played with a past his prime Eli Manning for his whole career, Baker Mayfield is a major upgrade. Not only that, but he’s part of a stacked receiver core that includes one of his best friends in Jarvis Landry. Though it still feels weird to say it, he’s in a great situation right now with the Browns and is in line for a career year.

7. Antonio Brown, Oakland Raiders

Keeping with the trend of bad breakups, Antonio Brown’s departure from the Steelers was not pretty. Still, the fact that he’s an elite receiver hasn’t changed. Although the supporting cast in Oakland is far less impressive than the one back in Pittsburgh, Brown is so talented it’s likely he’ll still put up big numbers. Although he has character concerns, his production has never wavered and that won’t change even in Oakland. Fantasy players shouldn’t blink twice at the thought of making him their WR1.

8. Mike Evans, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Playing for Tampa Bay has unfortunately limited his exposure to the casual fans, but it doesn’t change the fact that Mike Evans is one of the best receivers in football. Despite playing with very inconsistent quarterbacks in Jameis Winston and Ryan Fitzpatrick, Evans still had 5 straight seasons where he put up over a 1000 receiving yards. Fantasy Owners should be thrilled to pick him up as his production is on par, or superior, to some of the biggest names in the league.

9. Adam Thielen, Minnesota Vikings

Undrafted, Adam Thielen spent much of his career just proving himself. Thankfully for him, those days are now over as he’s established himself as a consistently elite receiver. Although Kirk Cousins may not be the best quarterback, Thielen still put up big numbers last year. With another offseason of work, their rapport should improve, and there’s a chance they’ll be even better together next year. Thielen has worked extremely hard to get to where he is now, and it’s time for fantasy players to recognize him for what he is, a bonafide WR1.

10. Keenan Allen, Los Angeles Chargers

Keenan Allen had trouble staying healthy early in his career, but thankfully he’s seems to have put those problems behind him. Just like his team, he’s quietly put up elite stats recently, but has been overlooked. Although you should still be a little cautious of his injury history, Allen is worthy of being the main receiver on your fantasy team. The Chargers have become even better this offseason, and the receiving cores will be getting a boost with the return of Hunter Henry. This boost could allow Allen to reach a new level this season.

11. T.Y. Hilton, Indianapolis Colts

With the return of Andrew Luck, T.Y. Hilton had a bounce back season last year. Assuming Luck can remain healthy, expect him to continue being one of the best deep threats in football. The Colts are a team quietly positioned to make a run at the super bowl, and T.Y. will be a big part of that. While his touchdown numbers may not be as high as some other receivers in the same tier, that shouldn’t scare off fantasy players from selecting one of the best receivers available.

12. A.J. Green, Cincinnati Bengals

A.J. Green’s stock drops a little when considering his injuries along with his age. Still, that doesn’t change the fact that he was absolutely dynamite before he went down last season. Although new coach Zac Taylor is unproven, he comes from the Sean Mcvay tree, so it’s possible he breathes new life into the Bengals offense. If you’re confident in Taylor, as well as Green’s ability to stay healthy, you should have no qualms selecting him as a WR1.

13. Amari Cooper, Dallas Cowboys

Struggling in Oakland for the Raiders for the first half of the season, a trade to the Cowboys ended up rejuvenating Amari Cooper’s play. He immediately hit it off with Dak Prescott. His elite play down the stretch culminated in an epic performance against the Eagles where he had 217 receiving yards and 3 touchdowns, essentially clinching their playoff berth. Although his current outlook is positive, it’s important to not get too high off half a season of elite play. Cooper is a worthy choice, but be aware there are more consistent options for a WR1.

Tier Two: Not Elite but Still Pretty Good

14. Kenny Golladay, Detroit Lions

Kenny Golladay had a breakout season last year, and with the departure of Golden Tate, it’s reasonable to think he’ll have another big leap. Although Marvin Jones remains, Golladay is still likely to be the WR1 for the Lions this season. Heading into just his third season, Golladay has established himself as the Lion’s receiver of the present and the future. With another year in Matt Patricia’s system, both he and Stafford should be more familiar. Expect Golladay to once again produce a lot for the Lions.

15. Stefon Diggs, Minnesota Vikings

Stefon Diggs is one of the better WR2 in the leagues, as him and Thielen make a tough pair to guard on the field. Putting up career highs in yardage and in touchdowns last season, he’s clearly a guy on the upswing. Like Thielen, another year together with Kirk Cousins should lead to better play from Diggs. Counting on him to be your WR1 might be a little risky, but he’d make a great WR2.

16. Robert Woods, Los Angeles Rams

Like his quarterback Jared Goff, Robert Woods is a player who broke out once Sean Mcvay came to town. An all-around solid receiver, Woods can play outside and in the slot, so he can fill multiple roles with the Rams. The Rams offensive system is quite unique in the way that it allows their wide receivers to run the ball quite often. Because of this, it’s important to factor in some of the extra yardage he gains from rushing. The Rams don’t really have one dominant receiver that gets the majority of the targets, so making Woods as your WR1 is iffy. Still, he definitely should be one of your top options for a WR2.

17. Brandin Cooks, Los Angeles Rams

Many of the same points made about Woods could be made about Brandin Cooks. Still, Cooks is more consistent as he’s had 4 consecutive 1000 yard seasons. He had a great first year with the Rams, and his chemistry with Goff will only improve this offseason. Him and Woods are pretty interchangeable, but Woods gets a slight edge up for his slightly higher yardage and touchdown numbers last season. Still, don’t hesitate to make him your WR2 if you get the chance.

18. Tyler Lockett, Seattle Seahawks

It was a sad day for Seahawks fans when Doug Baldwin finally called it quits. Still, this means that Tyler Lockett will have the opportunity to assert himself as a WR1 on the Seahawks. Already showing flashes last year, Lockett ended up leading the team in receiving yards. With no other established receivers on the team, Lockett will most likely be Russel Wilson’s favorite target. It would seem like a perfect storm is brewing for Lockett to put up career numbers.

19. Jarvis Landry, Cleveland Browns

Jarvis Landry had an encouraging first season with the Browns, where he developed a strong rapport with Baker Mayfield. Next year however, should be even better for Landry with the arrival of Odell Beckham Jr. Not only are they close friends, but they also fit together nicely on the football field. Although Landry can play the role of a WR1, he plays at his best when in the slot. Next year will be a big year for both Landry and his team, as expectations have massively increased. The Browns are betting big on Odell and Landry working together and so should you. Landry is a more than worthy pickup as a WR2 for your team.

20. Julian Edelman, New England Patriots

The Super Bowl MVP finally makes an appearance on the list. Julian Edelman has long been one of the best slot receivers in the league, and he reminded people of it with a bounce back season. Although there were doubts about him thanks to his ACL tear and his 4 game suspension he quickly quieted them. Although he’ll face increased pressure with Gronk retired, as long as Tom Brady’s age doesn’t catch up to him he should still produce. Picking him as your WR1 isn’t the best of choices, but he’ll make a great WR2.

21. Tyler Boyd, Cincinnati Bengals

Something that was lost in the Bengals disastrous second half of the season was Tyler Boyd’s quiet emergence as solid WR1. Once Green comes back, he’ll probably be moved back to WR2 but he showed enough potential as a featured option to bring intrigue as a second receiver to draft. This holds especially true if Zac Brown can work that Mcvay magic on the Bengals. Although John Ross will probably get an increased role next year, Tyler Boyd is still somebody worth taking as a number two receiver.

22. Robby Anderson, New York Jets

Robby Anderson was an absolute diamond in the rough for the Jets, as they picked him up from undrafted free agency. As the leader in receiving yards for the Jets, Anderson’s play should only get better as he develops with Sam Darnold. Assuming Darnold can take the big sophomore leap everyone expects of him, Anderson has a chance to truly assert himself as WR1 in the league. Still, there are a little too many what ifs for him to be considered a reliable WR1, but the upside is definitely there. Pick him up as a solid WR2.

23. Chris Godwin, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Following up a strong sophomore season, expectations will be understandably high for Chris Godwin going into his third season. Godwin is firmly entrenched as the WR2 for the Buccaneers, and with the revamped offensive system under Arians, will have the chance to surpass 1000 yards for the first time in his career. Godwin is a player on the rise, but he’s entering uncharted territory, so there is risk in being too high on him. Still, he’s definitely worth it as a WR2 on your team, with the opportunity to become more.

24. Calvin Ridley, Atlanta Falcons

Thanks to the addition of Calvin Ridley last year, the Falcons receiving core became even more stacked than it already was. Ridley had a strong rookie year with over 800 yards and 10 touchdowns, leading all rookies. It’s likely his role will increase, but the presence of Sanu and Jones will likely ensure that he won’t be able to go too crazy. Expect solid but predictable production from him as a WR2 or WR3 on the Falcons.

25. Mike Williams, Los Angeles Chargers

After a disastrous, injury plagued rookie season, Mike Williams bounced back nicely, showing why the Chargers were so high on him. A big bodied receiver, Williams showed his effectiveness as a red zone threat, with 11 total touchdowns on the season. With the departure of Tyrell Williams, Mike Williams should become the undisputed WR2 for the Chargers. Back to back breakouts for him are certainly within the realm of possibility, and catching passes from Philip Rivers can’t hurt.

26. Sammy Watkins, Kansas City Chiefs

Sammy Watkins has always showed flashes of greatness but lacked the consistency to be a number one option. However, he may not have the choice this season as Tyreek Hill will probably face a massive suspension and may even get released for the allegations of battery against him. Although Watkins hasn’t cracked over 1000 yards for 3 seasons, the current situation is shaping up nicely for him. Playing with the reigning MVP in Mahomes should make things easier for him, and it’s quite easy to envision a breakout season where he puts it all together.

27. Cooper Kupp, Los Angeles Rams

Cooper Kupp was having a strong sophomore season before he went down with the ACL tear against the Seahawks in week 10. Before that however, he was on pace for over 1000 yards and 10 touchdowns. Although his ACL injury does bring some concern for his status going into the season, he’s still a worthy pick up as a WR2. Assuming he can get back on track to where he was before the injury, there’s no reason to think he can’t replicate, or even surpass his production in the first half of last season.

28. Alshon Jeffery, Philadelphia Eagles

Alshon Jeffery may not be as productive as he was on the Bears, but he’s still a capable receiver. With less QB drama this season, now that Nick Foles has signed elsewhere, there will be less distractions for the offense. At this point in his career, we know what Jeffery is and what he can give. Counting on a massive resurgence on him isn’t wise, but neither is expecting a dramatic falloff. Draft him as a solid second or third receiver who’ll give weekly consistent production, but don’t expect too much.

29. D.J. Moore, Carolina Panthers

D.J. Moore had a pretty strong rookie season with the Panthers, leading the team’s receivers in yardage in just his first season. Things seem to be looking up for him, as he will most likely be the team’s WR1 this season. Because of that, this ranking might seem a little too low, but there’s a big reason why. That’s Cam Newton’s shoulder. The Panthers burned and crashed at the end of the season after a strong start, and a main reason why is because of Cam’s shoulder injury that seriously hampered his ability to throw the ball. If Cam can’t get back to himself then Moore will likely be getting targets from a second stringer, as the Panthers didn’t get any insurance. For that reason, taking Moore earlier in the draft may be a risky proposition.

Tier Three: Pick These Guys up in Later Rounds

30. Allen Robinson, Chicago Bears

Allen Robinson may not have met the expectations of a 1000 yard receiver the bears were hoping for, but he was still pretty solid. The Bears receiving corps lacks a true number one but they still have a lot of quality options. What this means for the Bears’ receivers is that the targets will probably be relatively evenly distributed among them. Because of this, it’s hard to see Robinson getting enough attention to truly be anything more than a decent wide receiver to pick up in later rounds

31. Corey Davis, Tennessee Titans

Corey Davis is another player who had a strong sophomore season after disappointing as a rookie, getting close to a 1000 receiving yards Next year will be interesting for the Titans, as we’ll see how the offense adjusts to a change in offensive coordinator. There are important questions at the quarterback position. It was strange to see Titans bring in Ryan Tannehill, and it raises concerns for Marcus Mariota. Not only that, but after Derrick Henry’s second half explosion, the Titans may shift to a more run oriented scheme. Overall, there are a lot of moving parts in the Titans offense, and that makes Davis hard to gauge.

32. Sterling Shepard, New York Giants

With Odell gone, the Giants will need their remaining receivers to step up, none more so than Sterling Shepard. Shepard has had three straight solid seasons but he’ll likely face increased attention from defenses. With so much uncertainty at quarterback for the Giants, his numbers might take a hit. Still, he’s proven himself to be talented enough to where he should still be a quality WR3 for your team.

33. Mohamed Sanu, Atlanta Falcons

Part of a monster receiving trio for the Falcons, Mohamed Sanu enjoyed a career year in terms of yardage. He’s been remarkably consistent for the Falcons and still on the right side of 30, that shouldn’t change. Getting to play on such an elite offense with the Falcons is both good and bad for Sanu’s production. On one hand, it sets a certain floor for Sanu’s play, ensuring it won’t dip beyond WR3 levels. However, because of the presence of Ridley and Jones, it’s impossible to envision Sanu ever becoming an undisputed WR1 or even WR2 in Atlanta. For better or worse, Sanu is a known commodity going into the draft.

34. Golden Tate, New York Giants

Golden Tate may have disappointed in his half season in Philadelphia but he does have a positive history of production on his side. Conversely however, he’s going from a good situation to a bad one. While the Eagles and Lions had their flaws, the Giants are noticeably worse. They have a big uncertainty at quarterback, as Eli Manning is clearly past his prime while Daniel Jones is an unknown commodity as a rookie. Tate is talented and experienced enough to the point where he should still be solid, but expecting him to have the numbers he had on the Lions would be a mistake.

35. Marvin Jones, Detroit Lions

Having an injury plagued season this year, Marvin Jones will be hoping to recover this offseason and get back on track from his career best 2017. Although Golladay has entrenched himself as the Lion’s receiver WR1, the departure of Golden Tate means there should still be plenty of opportunities for Jones. Jones showed how good he can be in 2017 and if the Lions want to return to the playoffs this year, they’ll need him to rediscover that version of himself. Be cautious of him, but know he has the upside to be a WR2 or WR3 on your team.

Although Larry Fitzgerald finally started to show signs of decline last season, he should still be a solid option as the third receiver on your fantasy team. One of the best receivers to ever do it, Fitz still has some gas left in the tank. Although a new offensive system is coming, Fitz has played for so long he’s earned the benefit of the doubt. His age will start to affect him more and more as time goes on, but he should still have at least one more season of solid productivity.

Tyrell Williams quietly had 3 strong season in a row for the Chargers before he left to sign with the Raiders. On the Raiders, he’ll be one of the more established options and the clear WR2 for the Raiders to begin the season. Someone outside Brown needs to step up for the Raiders, and Williams has a strong chance of doing so. The Raiders offense could surprise a lot of people this season, and if so, snagging Williams as your third receiver could end up being a bargain.

38. Christian Kirk, Arizona Cardinals

Despite less than ideal circumstances, Christian Kirk still managed to have a decent rookie season. With Larry Fitzgerald on the decline, Kirk is clearly the Cardinals receiver of the future. Still, a lot of change happened to the Cardinals offense this offseason, so questions exist. Depending on how you feel about rookie head coach Kliff Kingsburry and 1st pick Kyler Murray, Kirk could conceivably have a breakout year this season. Just be aware if you’re drafting him high that you’re placing a lot of faith in a rookie head coach and quarterback.

39. N’Keal Harry, New England Patriots

The Patriots knew that they needed to revamp their receiving corps after Gronk retired, Hogan left, and Gordon was suspended. They did just that when they drafted big bodied receiver N’Keal Harry in the first round. Although there are risks with drafting a rookie, Harry should immediately play a big role with the team. Getting to catch passes from Tom Brady should also boost his stock as well. Although he’ll have big shoes to fill, N’Keal Harry might get the same type of looks Gronk got, as he is currently the biggest receiver the Patriots have on the team. As shown with Sony Michel last season, Belichick isn’t afraid to give a rookie a substantial role in the offense. Keep an eye on Harry, as he can prove to be a steal in your draft.

40. D.K. Metcalf, Seattle Seahawks

Sticking with the theme of rookies, D.K. Metcalf is in a similar situation to N’Keal Harry. A combine darling, Metcalf fell a bit in the draft due to questions over his lack of production in college. Still, the Seahawks were happy to take him with the last pick in the second round. Just like Harry, Metcalf will most likely be given a big role in the Seahawks offense after the retirement of former franchise mainstay Doug Baldwin.(He’s even taken his number) Although Metcalf is raw, he’ll benefit from playing with Russell Wilson. He’s a bit risky, but his physical tools are off the charts. For that alone, he’s at least worth a look in later rounds.

41. Dante Pettis, San Francisco 49ers

Despite an injury plagued rookie season, Dante Pettis started to figure it out towards the end of the year. Over his final four games, he averaged 72 receiving yards and had 4 touchdowns, on pace for over 1000 yards and double digit touchdowns in a full season. With starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo returning this season, expect Pettis to step up his play. It’s unwise to assume too much from a five game sample, but Pettis is in a great situation. He’s likely to be the WR1 for the Niners this year, and could wind up being a steal as a WR3.

42. Will Fuller, Houston Texans

Before he tore his ACL, Will Fuller was asserting himself as one of the premier deep threats in the league. On pace for more than 1000 yards, he was proving himself as a worthy WR2 opposite Hopkins for the Texans. Unfortunately, his ACL injury is quite concerning, as not only does it have the possibility of sidelining him for the beginning of the season, it could affect his play. For a player so reliant on speed, an ACL tear is an even more worrisome injury. There’s still a solid chance Fuller rediscovers his early season form, but keep the risks in mind when drafting him.
