Tier 1
2Justin Jefferson, MIN723.21.0519.4

Jefferson could easily be my number one receiver. Many have him ranked number one, and I may even end up drafting him over Kupp at times in the interest of diversifying my picks across leagues. Pick the one you prefer, you can't go wrong with either.

3Ja'Marr Chase, CIN1022.41.0917.9

I could almost copy and paste the same note for Chase as for Jefferson. Not quite as many have Chase as the WR1, but would it surprise? Last year's rookie numbers came after an entire year off from football! More talented options to share the ball with on the Bengals puts Chase third for me, but it is very close.

Tier 2
4Davante Adams, LV629.61.1121.5

This is a tough one. A downgrade at QB and a much better receiving corps around him now than Adams had with the Packers. He will still be the alpha, but probably not peppered with targets as much. On the plus side, the Raiders should be in plenty of shootouts in their division. I'm comfortable with Adams but most likely go in a different direction (RB) in drafts.

5CeeDee Lamb, DAL923.32.0414.2

I'm on the fence about Lamb, and leaning to no, I'll let someone else draft him. Late last season I faded him in my weekly rankings many times which worked out. Maybe I'll be proven wrong but I just don't see him as a high volume WR you want at this point in the draft, and he hasn't been a big touchdown guy yet either. Scored 6 each of his first two seasons.

6Stefon Diggs, BUF728.72.0116.8

Feels like a safe, reliable, top WR option, and there is nothing wrong with that. One hopes the Bills offense continues business as usual, but the loss of OC Brian Daboll raises concerns. Through good times or bad, QB Josh Allen will lean heavily on his most reliable receiver, Diggs.

  • Raiders: How fresh is the chemistry between Derek Carr and Davante Adams?

    Carr has his old college teammate back, which could be the key to getting the Raiders to the next level and elusive back-to-back playoff appearances.

  • Davante Adams Looking Smooth

    Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams has looked smooth during the team's offseason program and has almost exclusively lined up outside and has worked from the left and right sides of the field. Adams played with quarterback Derek Carr at Fresno State and they also worked out together during several offseasons, so it hasn't taken them long to get used to each other again. Adams drew most of his targets from quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the slot last year with the Packers, but he should spend the vast majority of his time out wide with his new team with Hunter Renfrow manning the slot. The 29-year-old five-time Pro Bowler has great chemistry with Carr, though, and he should remain a strong WR1 target for fantasy managers in 2022.

  • Davante Adams Praises Derek Carr

    Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams compared quarterback Derek Carr to his former signal-caller in Green Bay in Aaron Rodgers. "As far as talent and ability, it's really similar, if I'm keeping it real," Adams said. "They throw the ball a lot different. Derek's gonna fire it in there, and you gonna know that thing's coming quick. Aaron's got the ability to tighten that core up and flick that ball to you." Carr is coming off a career-high 4,804 passing yards on 428 completions in 2021 while leading the team to their first playoff berth in five years. The 31-year-old could be even better this year with Adams in town, potentially making him a solid low-end QB1 in fantasy.
