Wide Receiver

Bye 13 · Age 24.8 · ADP 1.01 · PPG 17.8

Although placed in a tier with other WR capable of landing in the number one spot, pretty clear choice for WR1 and overall top choice in most 1QB leagues (half to full PPR, start 2 RB to 3 WR). Top talent, narrow tree, solid QB, on a team that is likely to be playing from behind, there is little reason to doubt a JJ repeat performance. Except his contract situation, but they should work it out.

Bye 7 · Age 24.1 · ADP 1.02 · PPG 16.6

Chase missed four games last season due to a hip injury, Weeks 8-12. He book-ended that with a 8-130-2 (Week 7) and a 7-97-0 (Week 13) line. The original timeline for the hip injury was 4-6 weeks. That's about as best case as you can hope for dealing with an injury to one of your star players. His PPG jumped 1.3 in half-ppr from his rookie season, and targets per game went from 7.5 in 2021 to 11.3 in 2022. There is very little change to warrant concerns with the Joe Burrow-Chase connection. In a 1QB PPR league, I'm fine to rank Jefferson-Chase first and second overall, ahead of the RB position.

Bye 10 · Age 30.1 · ADP 1.04 · PPG 16.9

No Mahomes, no problem! Hill set career highs in receptions, receiving yards, and half-ppr fantasy points in his first season with the Dolphins. And quarterback was not-not a problem (got that?). Tua got knocked out of games twice, and missed starts in two different stretches, leading to snaps for Teddy Bridgewater and Skyler Thompson. Mike McDaniel is a scheme wizard, maximizing Hill's exceptional talent. However, there is some risk with Hill. We could almost mark a tier between Chase and Hill. Hill is pushing 30, Jaylen Waddle enters his third season already showing he can do it all, and Hill is under investigation for an alleged assault. That probably has no impact this season, but there is uncertainty.

Bye 13 · Age 30.3 · ADP 1.07 · PPG 16.4

Is the friction between Stefon Diggs and the Bills a red flag? Yes. But perhaps not a big enough flag to knock Diggs off a high ranking after finishing WR2, WR5, and WR4 in seasons 2020-2022. The team and Josh Allen say things got blown out of proportion by the media. Wouldn't be the first time. The receiver depth chart has not changed as much as we thought it might this offseason. Allen will continue to lean on Diggs and their exceptional on-field connection. Diggs is a little risky for potential insubordination, but don't hesitate too much on acquiring elite production.

Bye 13 · Age 31.3 · ADP 2.03 · PPG 16.8

Bye 9 · Age 24.5 · ADP 1.10 · PPG 13.4

This is the ranking that stands out in this tier. ADP says Amon-Ra St. Brown is an early 2nd round pick, or WR8. Here he's WR6, ahead of Lamb and A.J. Brown. It is the 90 catches as a rookie, and 106 catches last season, plus a group of iffy receiving options on the Lions that push A-R up for me. Jared Goff has to lean on his top guy. Plenty of double-digit target games on tap. More touchdowns would be nice.

Cooper Kupp is the WR PPR king the last two seasons, when he plays. Although last season's first half likely wasn't sustainable because it was Kupp and next to nothing in the Rams offense. Matthew Stafford missed Week 10. That was Kupp's last week due to a high ankle sprain that required surgery. Can the cap-strapped and draft pick-strapped Rams piece together a competitive offering this season? Possible, but depth is very thin. Upside pick with risk.

Kadarius Toney is going to be one or the most polarizing players in fantasy football drafts this season. Super talented, never healthy, is his M.O. The Chiefs flirted with DeAndre Hopkins but he did not sign there. Meanwhile, a \"major focus\" of Chiefs training camp is to strengthen the connection between Patrick Mahomes and Toney. While I'm not tripping over myself to acquire Toney in drafts, at a relatively cheap cost, he's worth the risk.
