Wide Receiver (WR) Snap Counts 2021

Injuries can derail anybody’s snaps, but wide receivers seem to have more to it than that. Banged up wide receivers might be active for a game, but their snap counts do not tell a healthy story. True WR1s are going to log the most snaps on a weekly basis, while things start to change as you drop down the depth chart. WR2s are generally safe as well, but some teams like to keep fresh bodies on the field, or different skillsets depending on game-flow. A team running two-WR sets will have lesser snaps for those lower on the depth chart at the position, where teams that run three-WR sets more feature wideouts with higher snap counts. With snaps correlating with offensive production, they are awfully important for fantasy purposes. Keep tabs on these situations that change heavily on a weekly basis by sorting through players and weeks.
