Dynasty WR's

We take a look at the Top Keeper/Dynasty Wide Receivers for a 3 year outlook, taking into account skill, scheme fit, organizational consistency, surrounding cast and, yes of course, age. The indicated age of the player is how old the player will be entering next season. Dominate your Fantasy Football leagues but using our Top WR Dynasty and Keeper Rankings. Updated: Apr. 29/16

1. Odell Beckham Jr., NYG - Age 24 Injury Update

Through his first three NFL seasons Beckham has exceeded 90 catches for 1300 yards, and posted double digit touchdowns in each campaign. That includes last season, when he topped 100 receptions for the first time in his career. Heading into his age 25 season the former LSU wideout has already produced at an elite level since arriving in the league and there s no reason to think that won t continue. While there has been some chatter that the presence of newly signed Brandon Marshall could cut into Beckham s production, it s far more likely that all Marshall does is make it harder to double and triple team the All-Pro wideout. Even with Eli Manning playing poorly last season, Beckham still posted top tier wide receiver numbers for fantasy purposes. He s a fantasy stud for the foreseeable future.

2. Antonio Brown, PIT - Age 29 Injury Update

As long as Big Ben is around, Brown seems like an absolute lock to maintain top five wide receiver value. But heading into his age 29 season the days of being the top fantasy wide receiver are probably behind him. He s still a dominant pass catcher, but with Le Veon Bell as the focal point of the offense, the Steelers expecting Martavis Bryant to be reinstated, the addition of Ju Ju Smith-Schuster in the draft, and an improving Steelers defense, it s clear that Pittsburgh is trying to surround their star receiver and franchise quarterback with enough talent to open things up across the offense. He s still a stud wideout that is going to deliver for fantasy owners, but it s unlikely we see a return to the 2014 and 2015 stat lines or 129-1698-13 & 136-1834-10 respectively. After all, that s what elevated him to the territory of the elite.

3. Julio Jones, ATL - Age 28

2016 was a tough season for Jones owners, as the high flying Atlanta offense didn t always translate to big fantasy days for the Falcons top wideout. Yes, there was his dominant 12 catch, 300 yard performance against the Panthers in Week 4, as well as six additional weeks where he topped 100 yards. But Jones also disappeared at times, failing to top 35 yards or find the end-zone four times over the first twelve weeks. With all four of those poor performances coming before Week 13, Jones essentially posted complete duds in one-third of the first twelve weeks of the fantasy regular season. That s hardly the level of consistency we want out of a high end WR1. The now departed Kyle Shanahan seemed all too willing to go away from Jones when defenses schemed to take him away. And it s hard to argue with the results. But from a fantasy standpoint, owners need to hope new OC Steve Sarkisian shows a greater willingness to force the ball into Jones or tries to get him more involved in the red zone, where he only saw nine targets last season.

4. Mike Evans, TB - Age 24

Since coming into the league, Evans has gotten steadily better through each of his first three NFL seasons. That said we need to be cautious about expecting improvement on or perhaps even a repeat of his 2016 production. Despite the improvement of Jameis Winston, there was little in the way of offensive talent on the Bucs roster, making Evans an absolute target monster week in and week out. With the addition of DeSean Jackson Tampa Bay now has a viable number two receiver, and one that can take the top off a defense to boot. Factor in the additions of rookie tight end O.J. Howard and wide receiver Chris Godwin, along with a now healthy Doug Martin, and Tampa Bay simply won t need to lean as heavily on Evans this season. Heading into his age 24 season he s still the go-to weapon in this offense and always a big play threat. Expect his fantasy value to come from being put into more ideal situations and benefitting from more one on one coverages rather than from the sheer target volume he saw in 2016.

5. Amari Cooper, OAK - Age 23 Injury Update

Heading into his age 23 season, Cooper has looked as good as advertised and it s easy to see why the Raiders used the fourth overall pick on him in 2015. That said he has struggled late in the season in each of his first two years, and at times has been frustratingly inconsistent from a production standpoint. Teammate Michael Crabtree seems to get the end zone looks, but it s probably only a matter of time before Cooper overtakes him in that department. Back to back thousand yard seasons to open an NFL career is nothing to scoff at, and Cooper already looks like he s going to be a perennial fantasy stud as Derek Carr s top target for a long time to come.

6. A.J. Green, CIN - Age 29

Playing in just ten games last season due to injury, Green failed to top 1000 yards receiving for the first time in his NFL career. He also posted career lows for receptions and touchdowns as well. Now healthy, the 29 year old receiver will continue to fill the go-to wideout role in the Cincinnati offense for at least a few more seasons. The Bengals also selected speed merchant John Ross in the first round of the draft, and his ability to take the top off a defense should help provide more opportunities for Green and keep defenses from keying too heavily on him.

7. DeAndre Hopkins, HOU - Age 25 Injury Update

After a huge 2015 campaign, Hopkins 2016 season was forgettable. But frankly, given the way that Brock Osweiler played in Houston, that was to be expected. Even playing with Osweiler for most of the season, Hopkins still nearly topped a thousand yards, but the touchdowns were few and far between and the week to week production on the season was hardly what fantasy owners paid for. So far Tom Savage has looked adequate as a starter and should prove to be an upgrade for Hopkins. The same can probably be said of quarterback heir apparent, Deshaun Watson as well. Hopkins should be able to put 2016 behind him and return to form with either signal caller under center. Still just 25 years old, he s also playing for a new contract and has expressed a desire to stay in Houston. After surviving last season, Hopkins dynasty arrow is pointing up.

8. Michael Thomas, NWO - Age 23

Coming out of Ohio State many thought Thomas to have as high a ceiling as any wide receiver in last year s draft class. But the consensus also seemed to be that he was still relatively raw and likely still a year or more away from being a reliable weekly contributor. But Thomas had other ideas, posting 92 receptions for 1137 yards and 9 touchdowns as a rookie. In fact, he was so impressive that New Orleans felt comfortable dealing Brandin Cooks this offseason. With Cooks gone Thomas becomes the unquestioned top target in the Saints passing game, and could easily best his top ten fantasy receiver output from last season. At 6 3 , 220lbs with deep speed, Thomas is a matchup nightmare. With just one NFL season under his belt he already looks like a player that should spend the foreseeable future as a WR1 in all fantasy formats, and it s scary to think about how much better he could get.

9. T.Y. Hilton, IND - Age 27

With Andrew Luck s early season playing status still a bit up in the air, T. Y. Hilton owners may need to be patient early on. But even if that s the case, the diminutive burner is undoubtedly Luck s top target in what has mostly been a disappointing receiving corps the past few seasons. Hilton posted career highs in receptions (91) and yardage (1,448) in 2016, and found the end zone half a dozen times. With the Colts all but giving up on Phillip Dorsett and Donte Moncrief seemingly unable to stay healthy, Hilton should once again lead the team in targets as he heads into his age 28 season. Always a big play threat, it will be interesting to see if the Colts scheme to get Hilton deep more this season with Luck s shoulder back to full strength for the first time in two years.

10. Allen Robinson, JAX - Age 24 Injury Update

From a talent perspective, Robinson is a top ten NFL wideout. But as long as he s playing with Blake Bortles there are going to be painful days ahead for Robinson and his fantasy owners. On the bright side Bortles seems to understand that he needs to get the ball into Robinson s hands whenever possible. Less encouraging is his inability to make even routine NFL throws these days. Playing in just his age 24 season, we ve seen what Robinson can be with consistent quarterback play so both he and his fantasy owners will need to hope that Bortles can get his career back on track. If not, management may decide to make a move, which might not be the worst thing for Robinson s long term fantasy value.

11. Dez Bryant, DAL - Age 28

Banged up in each of the past two seasons, Bryant s production hasn t quite matched what we saw earlier in his career where he was one of the top fantasy wide receivers year in and year out. Still, Bryant is entering his age 29 season and remains a valuable red zone weapon. His fantasy prospects also get a boost with the suspension of Ezekiel Elliott, as conventional wisdom suggests the Cowboys will need to open the offense up a bit more with Elliott riding the pine. It s also worth noting that Bryant had a monster second half last season as rookie quarterback Dak Prescott got more comfortable in the offense. There s no reason he can t pick up where left off, and coming into the season without a lingering injury or any off the field issues, Bryant could be in line to return some sneaky good value at his current ADP.

12. Alshon Jeffery, PHI - Age 27

Despite being the marquee free agent name at wide receiver this offseason, injury questions led to just a one year deal in Philly where Jeffery will need to prove he can stay on the field. Injuries have cost him eleven games over the past two seasons, derailing what looked like inevitable fantasy stud status after big 2013 and 2014 campaigns. Still just 27, if Jeffery can stay healthy then he has top tier fantasy receiver upside and should be a big upgrade to the Eagles receiving corps. Downfield accuracy is still a bit of a question for second year quarterback Carson Wentz, but Jeffery also has the skill set to turn some of those errant throws into completions. While his dynasty stock is at an all time low, the talent isn t really a question so if Jeffery stays healthy and produces this season he could wind up being a steal at his current valuation.

13. Sammy Watkins, LAR - Age 24

Early in camp it appeared that Watkins had regained the explosiveness and agility that predated last season s foot injury. Now the question is whether he can stay healthy going forward. In the second half of 2015 Watkins was one of the most dominant receivers in the game, but last season s lingering foot issue left a lot of fantasy owners with a bad taste in their mouths. Now the move to Los Angeles further complicates the situation. In mid-preseason Watkins will need to learn a completely new offense and develop chemistry with second year quarterback Jared Goff, who is still struggling to adjust to the NFL. One positive note for Watkins is that much like in Buffalo, there should be little competition for targets at the receiver position. Former teammate Robert Woods got big money from the Rams this offseason, which raised some eyebrows because he s more of a WR2/3 NFL talent, gadgety scat back-wideout Tavon Austin gets manufactured touches, and rookie Cooper Kupp is slated for slot receiver duties. Watkins should reprise his alpha dog role with the Rams as the most talented wideout on the roster, but his future value is linked to the development of Goff for the time being.

14. Keenan Allen, LAC - Age 25

Lost to a torn ACL in Week 1, the 25 year old Allen has now suffered season-ending injuries in each of the past two years. And while all reports seem to indicate that Allen is completely recovered and playing with the same speed and explosiveness that has always made him a difficult matchup for defenses, he s certainly not a strong option for more risk averse owners. He gets a slight near term bump with 2017 first round pick, Mike Williams looking iffy for the season with a back injury, but there s still more competition for targets than Allen has previously had to contend with. Second year tight end Hunter Henry looks like the real deal and the Chargers patience with former UDFA Tyrell Williams paid off when he logged a 69-1059-7 stat line last year filling in for Allen. While the depth chart looks better for Los Angeles than it has in quite some time, Allen still has the highest ceiling so at this point it all comes down to staying on the field.

15. Brandin Cooks, NE - Age 23

The emergence of Michael Thomas as a rookie made Cooks expendable this offseason, and New England was ready and willing to pay the steep New Orleans asking price. Despite being somewhat miscast in the Saints offense, Cooks managed to be a productive, albeit inconsistent fantasy asset. Cooks will turn just 24 years old in September and joins a Patriots team that is in win now mode with a 40 year old Tom Brady under center. As is always the case in New England, the game plan will change each week and there may be times that Cooks simply isn t heavily involved in the offense. But even with that in mind, it s important to remember that New England gave up first and third round picks to acquire Cooks, and they aren t inclined to be shy about using him. He s hands down the most versatile receiver on the roster, and should post some big numbers as a member of the Patriots.

16. Jarvis Landry, MIA - Age 24 Daily League Sleepers

Landry s value becomes difficult to project with Ryan Tannehill s season ending knee injury. In the final year of his rookie contract, the Dolphins have so far been unwilling to commit big money to a player they pretty clearly view as not much more than an above average slot receiver. Landry has been a PPR stud for the past few seasons, but he simply doesn t offer enough big play or touchdown value to warrant a high draft day price in more traditional formats. It s also likely that the move to Jay Cutler this season works to his disadvantage. While Cutler is prone to brutal mistakes at times, he also has both the ability and trust in his arm talent to make the downfield throws that have often eluded Tannehill. That probably doesn t bode well for Landry s 2017 season or his future in Miami.

17. Corey Davis, TEN - Age 22

The number five overall pick in the draft, Davis dazzled early in training camp before a hamstring injury started to cost him valuable snaps. While he isn t the elite size-speed combination that we often think of in a number one wideout, Davis is an absolute technician as a route runner and attacks every throw with a my ball mentality. Even without elite measurables, he s gifted enough to threaten NFL defenses at all levels, and should prove to be a red zone weapon early on. The addition of Eric Decker and the presence of Delanie Walker may negate some of the touchdown upside early in his career, but Decker is in his age 30 season with a history of serious injuries and Walker is already 33. While the time missed in training camp is likely to slow his rookie season production, it would not be at all surprising if Davis was the top pass catching option in the Titans offense by season s end.

18. Demaryius Thomas, DEN - Age 29 Daily League Sleepers

Thomas is a frustrating player to own, as we ve seen him retain 90+ catch and 1000 yard receiving production in recent season, but the demise and eventual retirement of Peyton Manning has seen the touchdowns drops off precipitously. Entering his age 30 season Thomas still has the look of an elite receiver, but the quarterback play from Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch makes him far from a safe bet because the big plays that vaulted him into top ten receiver status just aren t there anymore. The reception numbers have remained relatively consistent, with 195 catches between 2015 and 2016 to 213 over the previous two seasons. But the yardage and touchdowns have fallen off a cliff with 2,387 yards in 2015-2016 compared to 3,049 yards between 2013 and 2014, and it s even worse on the scoring front with 25 touchdowns to just 11 over the same spans respectively. In short, quarterback play is absolutely tanking what could be an elite fantasy receiver, and for now there appears to be no end in sight.

19. Jordy Nelson, GB - Age 32

Despite missing 2015 with a torn ACL, Nelson looked like me hadn t missed a beat by the middle of last season, racking up a 97-1,257-14 state line on the year, the 14 scores being tops in receiving touchdowns in the league. Heading into his age 32 season, Nelson still looks dominant, but given his age and injury history there is some concern that another injury could be the beginning of the end. In redraft formats it s difficult not to view him as a top ten receiver, but in dynasty formats there may not be more than another season or two of WR1 production left, and even that might be optimistic. Don t discount the advantage of being Aaron Rodgers top target, but recognize that the clock is ticking here.

20. Donte Moncrief, IND - Age 24

Coming into last season Moncrief looked like a breakout candidate after impressing in limited work over his first two years in the league. But he missed nearly half the season with a shoulder injury, and even prior to that, never seemed to get on track. A red zone threat, Moncrief has found the end zone 16 times on just 126 career receptions. But fantasy owners would like to see him start racking up the yards, as the 24 year old receiver has just four 100 yard receiving game through his first 41 NFL contests. For now, T.Y. Hilton will continue to be the top option in the offense, but the Colts would love to see Moncrief assume a larger role, as the 6 2 , 220 lb receiver has the ability to work across the field and outside, with Hilton forcing defenses to play him deep. Right now it s a matter of staying on the field and developing some consistency for the fourth year receiver.

21. Doug Baldwin, SEA - Age 28

Baldwin has quietly been one of the most consistent fantasy receivers over the past two seasons. But it s difficult to envision him exceeding the production we ve seen in recent years, especially now that the Seahawks have stockpiled some backfield talent, Jimmy Graham is back to full strength, and Tyler Lockett and Paul Richardson make a healthy return. It s likely he ll remain Wilson s top target in the passing game, but a lot of his production over the past two years can be linked directly to injuries and ineffectiveness at the running back position and among Seattle s other pass catchers. Still a top twenty fantasy receiver, Baldwin is closing in on 30 years of age and is undersized to begin with. He s a player we can hope continues to produce at a high level, but it s unlikely there s much of a ceiling beyond what we ve seen the past two seasons.

22. Corey Coleman, CLE - Age 23

Another talented receiver with first round pedigree that finds himself surrounded by quarterback questions, Coleman is looking to bounce back from a disappointing rookie season. Injuries, inconsistency, and the emergence of Terrelle Pryor all contributed to a forgettable rookie campaign. Coleman should open the season as the number two receiver in Cleveland, but no one thinks newly signed Kenny Britt is a long term solution so Coleman should get every chance to challenge for the top spot. Though a bit undersized, he has big play ability and a willingness to make tough catches in traffic. The missed time to this point is a concern, as is a lingering hamstring issue. He s too talented and it s too early for dynasty owners to give up on him, but producing in 2017 is going to be crucial to his future. If DeShone Kizer manages to take over starting quarterback duties sooner rather than later, that could help as well.

23. DeVante Parker, MIA - Age 24

With Ryan Tannehill on the shelf for the season, Parker may actually get a boost with Jay Cutler sliding in under center. Other than deep ball specialist Kenny Stills, Devante Parker represents the Dolphins best big play threat. And while Stills is a one trick pony, Parker has the ability to threaten the defense at multiple levels. By all accounts the third year player has gotten serious about his conditioning and his craft this offseason. And that could spell trouble for opposing secondaries. Often criticized for laziness and lack of attention to detail, as well as poor off the field habits, Parker may have turned a corner, as he s been consistently explosive so far in camp. Cutler has never been shy about throwing the ball up and letting talented receivers make plays, and throughout his career he s shown a willingness to gamble he can make throws more than half of the league s quarterbacks aren t even willing to try. If that s the case in Miami we could easily see target volumes between Jarvis Landry and Parker get reversed, catapulting Parker s dynasty value as long as the former first round pick stays healthy.

24. Davante Adams, GB - Age 24 Injury Update

After a putrid 2015 campaign filling in for the injured Jordy Nelson, Adams came up big for the Packers last year. While the drops and inconsistency weren t completely erased, Adams clearly made big strides in those departments en route to 74 catches for 997 yards and 12 touchdowns. The concern here is how closely tied his fantasy value was to the touchdowns last season. The addition of Martellus Bennett is likely to shrink his red zone role, but there s also every reason to think he can continue to improve in other aspects. Jordy Nelson is still a great player, but on the wrong side of thirty. And Randall Cobb has battled injuries and inconsistent touches since his breakout 2014 campaign. Last season s production was a career saver for the young wideout, now he just needs to build on it.

25. Stefon Diggs, MIN - Age 23

A space player, over his first two seasons Diggs has been wildly inconsistent and prone to big swings in production from week to week. At 6 and less than 200lbs, Diggs doesn t possess elite size or speed. What he does boast are good hands and some nice run after the catch ability in the open field. A shifty runner, the Vikings have utilized him on short to intermediate routes in the conservative passing game they run under Sam Bradford. A more valuable PPR asset, Diggs should once again be in line for 80-90 receptions, but until those start to turn into better yardage and touchdown totals, he s more of a WR2/3 for fantasy purposes. An upgrade at the quarterback position is his best bet to climb the fantasy ranks in the near term.

26. Jordan Matthews, BUF - Age 25

With a logjam at receiver the Eagles needed to get rid of Matthews, as he was heading into the final year of his contract with Philly. As a rookie he looked like a budding star. And then when Jeremy Maclin left for Kansas City he stepped into the WR1 role and had his best season as a pro. But last year was a disaster, marred by injury and inconsistency. Despite ideal size, Matthews lacks elite speed and has been a far better receiver out of the slot than anywhere else over the course of his career. The sudden retirement of Anquan Boldin should see him slide into the slot permanently as he heads into a make or break it season in a run-heavy Buffalo offense looking for his next contract.

27. Michael Crabtree, OAK - Age 29

In the Raiders offense Crabtree has been the touchdown maker and is enjoying a career resurgence in Oakland with Amari Cooper drawing much of the defensive attention. He can struggle at times with drops, but his 17 touchdown catches over the past two seasons are half a dozen more than Cooper has caught, and he's posted 85+ reception in each season as well. Heading into his age 30 season the WR2 role in the Raiders offense suits him well. He should continue to be a red zone target, but expect Cooper's continued development to eventually start cutting into Crabtree's overall production and the delta between their targets begins to grow.

28. Kelvin Benjamin, BUF - Age 26 Injury Update

Coming off an ACL tear suffered in the 2015 preseason, Benjamin looked outstanding early on last year. But like much of the rest of the Panthers offense, he essentially disappeared as the season wore on. This offseason most of the conversation about the big receiver has centered around his weigh ins at OTAs. While he did manage to drop some of the weight over the summer and in training camp, he continues to be plagued by inconsistency. At 6'5" and nearly 250 pounds, Benjamin looks dominant at times, particularly after the catch when he's manhandling defensive backs in the open field. But he's also nonexistent or looks disinterested at times when you'd expect him to take over games. Consistency and focus are the keys for him, and as of right now he's a WR2/3 for dynasty purposes.

29. Terrelle Pryor, WAS - Age 28 Injury Update

One of the more head scratching moves of the offseason, with Jordan Reed ailing the Redskins let Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson, who saw more than 200 targets last season, walk in free agency. Second year receiver and 2016 first round pick Josh Doctson figures to take on a bigger role, but Washington also paid a hefty price to retain the services of 28 year old quarterback turned receiver, Terrelle Pryor in free agency. While there s no denying Pryor s elite athleticism for his size, he s still very raw as a receiver and benefitted from being the only consistently healthy and viable target in the Cleveland offense. It s also puzzling that after a solid 2016 campaign the Browns were so willing to let him walk. He gets a quarterback upgrade in Kirk Cousins, but it s unlikely that similar game scripts with a pile of garbage time targets are going to play out for him with the Redskins this season. His raw talent makes him intriguing, but he s certainly not without risk.

30. Martavis Bryant, PIT - Age 25

A size-speed freak that looked like he would need some time coming into the league, Bryant flashed upside in year one and wowed with his pure athletic ability. But he started off year number two in a bad way with a four game suspension due to a substance-abuse violation and then lost all of 2016 when he tested positive again. By all accounts he s said and done all the right things, and recently was reinstated for preseason games and practices so a full reinstatement shouldn t be far behind. Obviously, given his past transgressions he s not without risk. But from a talent perspective he s dripping with upside and could materialize into a top tier wideout playing alongside Antonio Brown. Re-entering the league he s a high risk, high reward player who won t turn 26 until late in the season.

31. Josh Doctson, WAS - Age 24 Injury Update

Perhaps the most complete receiver selected in the 2016 NFL Draft, Doctson missed nearly all of his rookie season due to an Achilles injury. He's also dealt with some hamstring issues in training camp so the durability questions are beginning to swirl a bit around the former first rounder. Still, Washington thought enough of him to let Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson go this offseason, which is telling. With Crowder manning the slot and Terrelle Pryor on the outside, Washington's preference would be to see Doctson step up and grab the third receiver role. But in order to do that he's going to have to stay on the field. Health, not talent is the question at this point with Doctson.

32. Emmanuel Sanders, DEN - Age 30 Injury Update

Playing the Robin to Demaryius Thomas's Batman, Sanders is one of the more talented number two receivers in the league. Unfortunately, in the post-Peyton Manning era in Denver, the quarterback position continues to underwhelm. By now Denver had expected Paxton Lynch to be the starter, but he's played so poorly that game manager Trevor Siemian will once again be under center to open the season. It's far from an ideal scenario for the 30 year old wideout, as too much improvement on last year's 79-1,032-5 stat-line shouldn't be expected unless the Broncos start getting considerably better play from the quarterback position.

33. Sterling Shepard, NYG - Age 23

A talented receiver, Shepard could see a short-term downtick in targets from last season now that Brandon Marshall is in town. And he'll almost certainly come up well short of last year's eight touchdowns unless either one or both of Beckham and Marshall miss extended time. In just his second year, Shepard has a strong rookie season to build upon and should have a productive career ahead. Taking a back seat to the 33 year old Marshall in the pecking order is only a temporary setback on a team that is built to compete for a championship sooner rather than later. Eli Manning's longevity also figures into his dynasty value, but assuming the Giants can adequately replace him the impact to Shepard's long term value shouldn't be significant.

34. Mike K. Williams, LAC - Age 22

Already missing time with a disk issue, it s possible the Chargers first round pick may not see the field as a rookie, and even then it will likely be on a limited basis. A big bodied receiver that wins at the catch point, Williams isn t a burner, but he s going to overpower most defensive backs, even at the NFL level. He doesn t create great separation so playing with a quarterback like Philip Rivers, who can throw him open or is willing to give him a chance to win footballs in coverage is a big plus. On the downside, he joins a crowded receiving corps with Keenan Allen returning from injury and Tyrell Williams emerging as a talented young receiver. And second year tight end Hunter Henry is also going to draw his share of the targets as well. Williams is unlikely to contribute in year one so he s a bit of a dice roll in leagues where he can be stashed.

35. Tyreek Hill, KC - Age 23 Rising Stock

On first glance the inclination is to reduce Hill to a gadget-type receiver who needs to get the ball on bubble screens and jet sweeps. But by all accounts the undersized burner has worked this offseason to develop himself into a more complete receiver, one capable of running the full route tree and threatening defenses downfield. In a best case scenario he continues to improve and can become a T.Y. Hilton-type weapon for the Chiefs. At issue is the fact that noodle armed Alex Smith is still the one chucking him the football for now, so short to intermediate routes may be as good as it get for the time being. Rookie quarterback Pat Mahomes has already been impressive in preseason play, which makes the second year pro a tantalizing long term investment, especially if he can continue to develop as a receiver and route runner.

36. Randall Cobb, GB - Age 27 Daily League Sleepers

After a promising start to his pro career, the now 27 year old Cobb has delivered poor performances in back to back seasons. 2014's 91 catches for 1,287 yards and a dozen touchdowns catapulted his value in dynasty formats, but with each passing season it's starting to look more and more like an outlier. He's also hurt by the fact that after coming off his own awful 2015 campaign, Davante Adams looked like he had started to put some things together in his third season and was earning the trust of Aaron Rodgers. Cobb's strong playoff performance last season suggests that he can still be counted on, but the Adams emergence and the addition of tight end Martellus Bennett this offseason hint at another underwhelming season ahead and dwindling dynasty value.

37. Golden Tate, DET - Age 29 Daily League Sleepers

A PPR monster, Tate has caught 90 or more passes in all three seasons in Detroit. But his lack of big plays over the past two seasons, and just 14 touchdowns since joining the Lions are hardly impressive. Expected to spend more time in the slot this season, Tate struggled last year until Ameer Abdullah went down and Marvin Jones began to fall off. At which point he played a huge role in the short passing game. Heading into his age 29 season some of the elusiveness has been sapped, but he s still a reliable receiver that can rack up catches and make a defender miss here and there. His best seasons are probably behind him, but this is a Detroit offense that struggles to run the football every year and Tate s ability to convert short yardage throws should continue to see him heavily involved in the passing game.

38. Julian Edelman, NE - Age 31 Injury Update

A torn ACL ended Edelman's 2017 campaign before it started. As beloved a player as he is in New England, he'll turn 32 years old this offseason and Bill Belichick has never been shy about moving on from a player. The timing of the injury works to his advantage. And much like Jordy Nelson did last season he could return healthy and a full go for next year's training camp, picking up right where he left off. He has no 2017 value, but dynasty owners should wait this one out.

39. Kevin White, CHI - Age 25 Injury Update

Health has proven to be a challenge for the third year wideout and former top ten pick. Selected to play opposite Alshon Jeffery when Brandon Marshall was sent packing, White brought a unique blend of size and speed, but was still very raw coming out of West Virginia. It's difficult to develop though if you can't stay healthy enough to be on the field. After missing all of his rookie season, White played in just four games last season before suffering a severe high ankle sprain and a fractured fibula. It was encouraging to see him so involved in the offense prior to the injury, as the Bears peppered him with a solid amount of short to intermediate routes that translated to 19 receptions for 187 yards. The numbers aren't huge, but for a player that has already missed 28 of his first 32 NFL games it's at least a sign that the Bears believe in his talent. Obviously, he needs to stay on the field to have any future value. But that said White is still just 25 and arguably the most naturally talented player in a thin Chicago receiving corps.

40. Jamison Crowder, WAS - Age 24

With Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson gone, Crowder is nearly assured of building on last season. A smaller receiver that operated mainly out of the slot last year, Crowder should reprise that role and could see far less competition for targets. Jordan Reed's health struggles have been well documented and the mystery surrounding his preseason foot issue continues to raise questions. Terrelle Pryor is new to the offense and Cousins, and while he had some success last season, he's still learning to play the position. And talented second year wideout Josh Doctson has struggled with injuries since he was drafted, playing in just two games as a rookie. Crowder isn't a gamebreaker, but he's a shifty player with the ability to churn out some extra yards after the catch. If some of the health questions break the wrong way for Washington, there's a path to 100 receptions for Crowder in this offense. Regardless, he's a virtual lock to top last year's 67-847-7 going into just his age 24 season.

41. Willie Snead, NWO - Age 24 Injury Update

With Brandin Cooks now in New England, the conventional wisdom is that Snead will slide into the number two role in the offense behind budding superstar Michael Thomas. But a loaded backfield and the addition of veteran deep threat Ted Ginn may mean he's more apt to repeat last year's number than to improve upon them significantly. Despite entering just his third NFL season, he's a steady and reliable receiver that Drew Brees can count on. But unlike the explosive Thomas or the speedy Ginn, Snead seems to profile as more of a possession-type and is going to see plenty of work out of the slot in three receiver sets, with snaps in two receiver sets somewhat up for grabs. He needs to create some distance between himself and Ginn to increase his short-term upside.

42. John Ross, CIN - Age 22

Limited through training camp by injury, Ross likely starts the season buried on the depth chart. It's a somewhat unassuming start considering Ross was the ninth pick overall this spring and broke the combine record for the forty yard dash when he clocked a 4.22 in Indy. Injured throughout his college career, his long term dynasty outlook hinges entirely on his ability to stay healthy. So taking on a limited role as a rookie may actually improve his chances at NFL longevity. Though he's a solid route runner and posses good hands, The Bengals already have quite a few pass catchers locked into significant targets in the offense. Expect Ross to be a situational deep threat and pick up snaps in three and four wide sets this season. But with starters A.J. Green and Brandon LaFell turning 30 and 31 years old respectively in the next twelve months, and Tyler Boyd looking more and more like an oversized slot receiver, Ross is going to get his opportunity soon.

43. Jeremy Maclin, BAL - Age 29 Injury Update

After being released by Kansas City in the offseason, Maclin landed in Baltimore and should assume the role vacated by Steve Smith. With Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman playing outside, Maclin is expected to work mainly out of the slot, which could carry some extra value with Dennis Pitta no longer there. Not yet 30, Maclin has been a steadily productive wideout when healthy, but too often throughout his career he's missed time or been severely limited by injuries. He does however have an opportunity to carve out a big role in the Ravens offense. Perriman is already slated to miss time with a hamstring injury, the depth chart at receiver is extremely weak to start with, running back Kenneth Dixon is lost for the season, and the tight end picture is murky at best. Maclin's deal is only for two years, but Baltimore has shown a willingness to bring in veteran receivers and give them an opportunity. This was one of the better potential landing spots for him and he could stick for handful more years.

44. Eric Decker, TEN - Age 30

It's difficult not to love the Tennessee Titans offense heading into the season, which makes one of the most productive red zone weapons in the league an attractive proposition. While just 30 years old, Decker's injury history is rather brutal and he's coming off a season in which he played just three games before being shut down and subsequently released when the Jets decided to go into tank mode. But setting aside last season, he recorded double digit touchdowns in three of the previous four years, and that's what Tennessee was looking for. The Titans are one of the more impressive young teams in the league, and the acquisition of Decker was about competing now so expect them to utilize him for as long as he can hold up physically. Also note that Decker has been far better throughout his career as the number two option in an offense, which means the Titans will be at their best if rookie Corey Davis get step up from the outset.

45. Zay Jones, BUF - Age 22 Injury Update

The trade of Sammy Watkins to Los Angeles and the abrupt retirement of Anquan Boldin opens the door for Jones to make his mark as a rookie. Yes, Jordan Matthews is now in town and the "number one" option, but his durability concerns persist and in the final year of his contract he was more of a dice roll for a team that needed receiver help. He's also going to run out of the slot, while Jones projects to spend plenty of time outside. An elite athlete, he put up an eye-popping 158 receptions as a senior at East Carolina last year, but was vastly underrated due to the short average depth of target. Rest assured that it had more to due with his quarterback and the offense he was playing with, and he'll be able to get open downfield in the NFL. He's in for a large rookie year workload, but this is still going to be a run-heavy offense so temper the early expectations. That said he's in a pretty ideal spot for both redraft and dynasty purposes.

46. Breshad Perriman, BAL - Age 23 Injury Update

A preseason hamstring strain has cost Perriman most of camp, but he should return in the early part of the season. This marks the second time in three seasons that Perriman has missed virtually all of training camp. An impressive athlete with speed to burn, Perriman showed flashes of his potential last season in making some spectacular catches. Though the Ravens project to throw the ball quite a bit again this season, even when Perriman returns he's going to be down in the pecking order with the additions of Jeremy Maclin and Danny Woodhead, as well as Mike Wallace developing some nice chemistry with Joe Flacco last season. On the bright side, Woodhead and Wallace are both on the wrong side of thirty and Maclin is already 29. Perriman, on the other hand is heading into his age 24 season. He needs to both stay on the field and make plays consistently to force his way into more targets.

47. Brandon Marshall, NYG - Age 33 Injury Update

While Marshall is heading into his age 33 season and coming off a disappointing 2016, it's important to remember that he was playing for a Jets team that was essentially dead in the water by mid-October and was already starting to come to grips with need for a total roster teardown. After all, he's just one year removed from a 109 catch, 1,502 yards, and 14 touchdown season. His best years may be behind him, but he's going to benefit significantly from playing opposite Odell Beckham, and Eli Manning hasn't had a big bodied receiver with ball skills like Marshall's since Plaxico Burress retired. Marshall should still have a few solid years of fantasy production left, and no one should be surprised if he finishes 2017 as a top twenty fantasy wideout.

48. Cameron Meredith, CHI - Age 24 Injury Update

Originally a UDFA that the Bears were patient enough to wait on, Meredith exploded onto the fantasy scene last season with big Week 3 and 4 performances where he saw a combined 27 targets in the two games and topped 100 yards receiving in each. But as other players got more involved, Meredith tailed off before another nice stretch of games with a big target load in Weeks 11-13. Still just 24 years old, the 66-888-4 line from last season is impressive, but it's also worth noting that Meredith benefitted from a lot of shootout and garbage time production. In fact, he topped 70 receiving yards just once, in a game where Brian Hoyer or Matt Barkley didn't throw for at least 300 yards. He benefits from being the de facto number one in poor group of receivers, it would not be shocking to see him struggle facing top tier corners this season. He's probably going to go a bit overdrafted based on last years handful of eye popping games.

49. Will Fuller, HOU - Age 23 Injury Update

While his dynasty stock hasn't taken a huge hit, 2017 looks to be a bit of a lost year for Fuller. A broken collarbone suffered in camp is likely to cost him at least the first half of the season. Fuller burst onto the scene in his rookie year with a big first month, but poor quarterback play, inconsistency, and drops plagued him from that point on. A lanky receiver who relies on his tremendous speed, Fuller is a nice complement to DeAndre Hopkins. But the missed time, the development of Braxton Miller and Jaelen Strong's solid camp cloud the future a bit for Fuller. With the Texans employing a run heavy offense and looking to lean on their defense, Fuller is going to have a difficult time producing consistently, and profiles as big play threat with boom-bust fantasy potential from week to week.

50. Tyrell Williams, LAC - Age 25

One of the most overlooked 1,000 yard receiving seasons in recent memory, there's little reason to think Williams can't build upon his strong 2016 campaign. He's bolstered even further by the fact that first round pick Mike Williams seems certain to miss extended time as a rookie. And while Keenan Allen has made a strong return it's starting to look like he's destined for an injury-plagued NFL career. A big play threat anytime he gets the ball in his hands, Williams led the Chargers in receiving last season and should start the season opposite Allen in two wide sets. Just 25 years old, he's an exciting player that continues to go somewhat overlooked in both redraft and dynasty formats.

51. JuJu Smith-Schuster, PIT - Age 20

For a team that already has Antonio Brown and expects Martavis Bryant to be reinstated any day, Smith-Schuster brings a physical presence to the Steelers receiver position that figures to be a perfect addition. He's a football player through and through and an absolutely warrior, with or without the football in his hands. He lacks the sort of speed and explosiveness that NFL teams covet, but he doesn't need much separation to win football and he does all the little things well. With so many mouths to feed in Pittsburgh, targets are going to be the real question. But if he can prove himself early on then he can have success at the NFL level as an Anquan Boldin-type wideout, a player to whom he often draws comparisons.

52. Marvin Jones, DET - Age 27

Through last September, Jones was the top receiver in fantasy, but from that point forward he was pedestrian at best. After signing him to a five year-$40 million free agent contract last offseason, Jones was expected to help offset the loss of Calvin Johnson. That simply didn't happen, as Jones took a backseat to Golden Tate for most of the season and saw his red zone value diminished by the presence of veteran Anquan Boldin. With Boldin now gone, if he can't put it all together in 2017 then it's likely never going to happen for him. Heading into his age 27 season the Lions are hoping they didn't overpay for secondary receiver, but it's certainly starting to look that way.

53. DeSean Jackson, TB - Age 30

Jackson is the deep threat the Bucs needed to take some of the pressure off Mike Evans. Though getting up there in age, he still has elite NFL speed and presents problems for defenses, both as a deep threat and with the ball in his hands in space. There's a bit of a boom-bust component to his game, but when healthy he's still a formidable NFL playmaker that has topped 1,000 yards receiving in three of his last four seasons. It's also worth noting that Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston is probably an upgrade over Kirk Cousins, as he throws a much better deep ball and seems more willing to take shots downfield.

54. Chris Godwin, TB - Age 21

While he'll initially play behind Mike Evans and DeSean Jackson, Godwin comes into the league at just 21 years of age and is a talented receiver already drawing rave reviews from coaches and teammates. Like Jackson, he has the speed to take the top off a defense, but he's a bigger player at 6'1", 210 lbs, and is going to a perfect complement to Mike Evans once the 31 year old Jackson begins to slow. While Godwin has wheels, he also has a "my ball" mentality and is a willing battler with defensive backs. It would likely take an injury for Godwin to be a significant contributor in year one, but by next season he's a name that should start generating some serious buzz, especially playing in this offense with Jameis Winston and company.

55. Tyler Lockett, SEA - Age 24

After battling a PCL injury to start 2017, Lockett's season ended with a broken tibia and fibula in Week 16. Fortunately, he suffered no ligament damage, but the Seahawks are still playing it safe with him in the preseason, though he is expected to be ready to roll for the regular season opener. Undersized but explosive, Lockett has proven he can be a dynamic weapon when he gets opportunities. And while the Seahawks have been adept at manufacturing them, it's come with a degree of inconsistency. Doug Baldwin is Russell Wilson's go-to wide receiver, and with Jimmy Graham recovering fully from an injury that some thought was a career ender, even if Lockett can successfully lock up the number two receiver role he's way down in the pecking order for targets. Seattle also hasn't been shy about their willingness to carve out a bigger role for C.J. Prosise in the passing game as well. Lockett is talented, but he'll need to stay healthy this year and dynasty owners will need to continue to be patient. He's a high ceiling, low floor-type fantasy asset.

56. Larry Fitzgerald, ARZ - Age 34

By all accounts this is likely to be the swan song for Fitzgerald. The future Hall of Famer's role has changed as both he and quarterback Carson Palmer have gotten older, but he remains a highly productive pass catcher from week to week. Heading into 2017 Fitz is coming off back to back 100+ catch seasons, but the yards per target and yards per reception are falling. Essentially, he's become a chain mover out of the slot, while also retaining a red zone role. He's no longer beating defenses deep, but he can still cause problems in the open field with his size and strength. Far more valuable as a PPR asset, dynasty owners need to know he could call it quits as early as the end of this season.

57. Mike Wallace, BAL - Age 31

The move to Baltimore last offseason really resurrected Wallace's NFL career, as he posted his first 1,000 yard season since 2011. As a 31 year old receiver who's biggest attribute is the ability to get over the top of a defense, there's not much runway from a dynasty perspective. That said Wallace plays with one of the best deep ball passers in the league and the Ravens already lost talented third year wideout Breshad Perriman to a hamstring injury that will keep him off the field into the regular season. The addition of Jeremy Maclin and an emerging Max Williams could also help open things up for Wallace downfield. And with Kenneth Dixon lost for the season, it's not unreasonable to think the Ravens could lead the league in passing attempts again. Wallace may see a fall off in target volume due to Maclin, but that could easily be balanced out from a fantasy perspective with a few more big plays and some additional trips to the end zone.

58. Pierre Garcon, SF - Age 31 Injury Update

Kyle Shanahan took over a roster that needed to be rebuilt from the ground up in San Francisco. But he also took along one of his favorite toys from Washington in Pierre Garcon. Now 31, the last time the veteran was the de facto WR1 in an offense was four seasons ago when Shanahan was the Offensive Coordinator with the Redskins. All that translated to was a league leading 113 receptions for more 1,300 yards. Right now the cupboard is bare at most of the offensive skill positions for the 49ers, but Garcon is coming off a 1,000 yard season and slides into the top wideout slot on a team that will be playing from behind constantly. And while it's debatable how good he actually is, we know presumptive starter Brian Hoyer isn't shy about throwing the football around. Garcon could post some sneaky good stats as the only game in town while the new regime tries to get things turned around.

59. Kenny Britt, NE - Age 28

Britt's big Cleveland deal was a bit of a head scratcher for many, as the Browns let last year's leading receiver, Terrelle Pryor, walk in free agency and replaced him with a player heading into his age 29 season. Britt is coming off his first 1,000 yard season since coming into the league in 2009, and is a veteran receiver with good size and speed who should help anchor a young and inexperienced Browns receiving corps. Britt has had his off the field struggles, particularly early in his career in Tennessee, but he's been a steady if unspectacular pro for the past few seasons. At this point he should be viewed as a stop gap option that can provide consistent production on a rebuilding Browns squad. His fantasy value is obviously linked to Cleveland's quarterback play, but he should be the top target in the offense and already managed to survive a season of Case Keenum and Jared Goff with some value intact so there's hope he can be a fantasy asset for at least a couple more seasons.

60. Laquon Treadwell, MIN - Age 22 Injury Update
61. Malcolm Mitchell, NE - Age 24
62. Rishard Matthews, TEN - Age 27

While Tajae Sharpe got all the preseason publicity, it was Matthews who quietly produced the best fantasy season by a Titans wideout last year, nearly topping 1,000 yards and scoring 9 touchdowns. But the addition of rookie first rounder Corey Davis and veteran Eric Decker are going to cut into his targets, and Delanie Walker is still a capable red zone weapon. What Matthews has going for him is that Decker is coming off another major injury that cost him most of last season and Davis is already on the shelf with a hamstring issue. If one or both miss time, he immediately becomes a value in an offense that should have little trouble moving the football.
