2016 Fantasy Football Rankings: Wide Receiver

The top four options at the wide receiver position represent an elite tier with the enticing combination of superior talent, capable quarterback play and whole lot of targets. Beyond this upper echelon, Dez Bryant and Deandre Hopkins get the next two spots — we’ll call this tier 1B. A lost 2015 season keeping depressing Dez’s outlook while a new quarterback puts just the slightest bit of question in Nuk’s value.

The next group (tier-two) sits just a half-step behind, but each of the top-16 options has the look of a WR1. It’s an intriguing mix of young and old and the order they sit in your pre-draft list is merely personal preference.

Brandin Cooks starts the true third-tier of wide receivers covers the rest of the top-30 including all three wideouts in Arizona, both of Matthew Stafford aerial weapons and the moist talent “Number 2’s” in the game.

InteresintgĀ values stand out in tier four, which is comprised of a mix of youngsters expected to see significant action (Parker, Coleman, White), a few reliable vets (Crabtree, Sanders, Jackson) as well as some stepping into larger roles (Chris Hogan).
