After laying down my initial wide receiver rankings. I’m feeling comfortable with my top 30 and still have question after question regarding many receivers. DeAndre Hopkins at the #1 spot is warranted. Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins are intriguing. Josh Gordon is a mutant but is he a Fantasy Football Production Machine in 2018? Will the Oakland Raiders target Amari Cooper and Martavis Bryant enough? There are changes occurring and we need to be on point, drafting for this year.

Off Season Wide Receiver Rankings

  1. DeAndre Hopkins is the best Fantasy Football Wide Receiver at the moment. Coming off three straight seasons with 151+ targets. Entering his prime. He might just be the guy in 2018. Potentially seeing 160+ targets, 90+ targets, 1k+ yards and double digit+. Hopkins is a great pick if your drafting third overall or later. It might just be a wild season for D Hop!2017 – 174 Targets: 96 receptions, 1,378 yards, 13 touchdowns.2016 – 151 Targets: 78 receptions, 954 yards, 4 touchdowns.

    2015 – 192 Targets: 111 receptions, 1,521 yards, 11 touchdowns.

    2014 – 127 Targets: 76 receptions, 1,210 yards, 6 touchdowns.

    2013 – 91 Targets: 52 receptions, 802 yards, 2 touchdowns.

  2. Antonio Brown – Antonio Brown is reliable. However with Big Ben, a new offensive coordinator and Ju Ju Smith Schuster performing. It means a few less targets for Brown and a couple more questions on the Steelers offense in 2018.    2017 – Targets 163: 101 receptions, 1,533 yards and 9 touchdowns.2016 – Targets 154: 106 receptions, 1,284 yards and 12 touchdowns.

    2015 – Targets 193: 136 receptions, 1,834 yards and 10 touchdowns.

    2014 – Targets 181: 129 receptions, 1,698 yards and 13 touchdowns.

    2013 – Targets 167: 110 receptions, 1,499 yards and 8 touchdowns.

    2012 – Targets 106: 66 receptions, 787 yards and 5 touchdowns.

    2011 – Targets 124: 69 receptions, 1,108 yards and 2 touchdowns.

    2010 – Targets 19: 16 receptions for 167 yards.

  3. Keenan Allen – A full year healthy in 2017. Allen is a candidate to lead the league in receptions, produce double digit touchdowns and finish in the top 10 for total receiving yards. Keenan Allen in 2017 went for 159 targets, 102 receptions, 1,393 yards and 6 touchdowns.
  4. Michael Thomas – Week in and week out consistency offers a high floor and dependability.In an explosive offense that is advantageous for playmakers. The working man’s Michael Thomas is the best at what he does. Entering year 3, he is already a top Fantasy Football option. Itd be nice to see a few game changing performances from the consistent Thomas.2017

    149 targets: 104 receptions, 1,245 yards, 5 touchdowns.

    2016

    121 targets: 92 receptions, 1,137 yards, 9 touchdowns.

  5. Julio Jones – 80+ receptions, 1,000+ yards and 6+ touchdowns is Julio’s floor. Julio saw 148 targets in 2017 and 203 in 2015. 129 targets in 2016 was in 14 games.
