2017 Fantasy RankingsOverall # 3 · WR # 1 (Tier 1)
WR, Pittsburgh Steelers
Height 5'10" Weight 186 DOB 1988-07-10 Age 29
College Central Michigan
|1||Antonio Brown, PIT||Brown is money. Although I am leaning RB with a Top 2 overall pick, Brown could be the safest pick on the board, one you'll be happy you drafted after the top RB were taken ahead of you. Even though I expect good things from Martavis Bryant, he isn't a threat to AB's targets with such weak receiver options after these two. PPR scoring, start 1-2 RB, 3-4 WR, strong argument for Brown #1 overall.|
|2||Julio Jones, ATL||Over 200 targets in 2015 - wow, that is still eye-popping. His targets dropped to a modest 129 last season but he still made the most of them with an 83-1,409-6 stat line, missing two games in the process. Expect OC Kyle Shanahan's departure to have a negative effect on the overall offense, but probably less-so for Jones even if his efficiency suffers. He plays tough and does tend to get knicked up a bit as a result.|
|3||Mike Evans, TB||Jameis Winston has some egos to manage in this Bucs offense to keep everyone happy (cough, cough ... DeSean Jackson), but Evans enters his fourth season after setting a career high in receptions and yards, plus adding a dozen touchdowns. Prefer Evans over many of the top WR for fantasy thanks to his impressive touchdown numbers inside the red zone.|
