2017 Fantasy RankingsOverall # 4 · WR # 2 (Tier 1)
WR, Atlanta Falcons
Height 6'3" Weight 220 DOB 1989-02-03 Age 28
|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.|
|4||Odell Beckham Jr., NYG||Some excellent choices in this top WR tier, especially considering Beckham is listed 4th. Three consecutive seasons topping 90 receptions, 1,300 yards and double-digit touchdowns. Damn. Many will take him first at this position, potentially first overall, and that is fine. Is his short temper or attitude going to get him in trouble and cost him games at some point? It is something you might think about from time to time with OBJ on your roster.|
