Wide Receiver – Tier Four
AJ Green– He has a big question mark because of health issues. Really he should be higher but he just can’t catch a break.
Curtis Samuel – Also gathering a ton of hype in camp and preseason but I watched every single game he played in college – the guy can ball.
Marvin Jones Jr. – He was well on his way to WR2 numbers before his injury and remains an elite deep threat for a QB who loves to look down field.
Curtis Samuel – Putting up a fight for the WR1 role in Carolina, elite speed and uptick in volume could make him an every-week fantasy starter.
Larry Fitzgerald – Fitz seems to be a forgotten asset in fantasy this season. I expect the rookie QB Kyler Murray to look his way early and often to move the chains throughout the season.
Dante Pettis – I love Pettis this year. The Niners passing game has the potential to be solid and he has shown that he has some great explosiveness and pass catching ability.
Sammy Watkins – I’m higher on Watkins than most I think, since I’ve seen a lot of guys push him down their boards since Tyreek avoided suspension. He’s a huge deep ball threat from Mahomes.
Will Fuller – If Fuller stays healthy, he’s set for a big year. He has such a great rapport with Watson and the two have been a great TD connection already in their limited time together.
Will Fuller – Please stay healthy
Tyler Boyd – AJ Green is having trouble staying on the field and is over 30 years old. I’ll be taking Boyd ahead of him anywhere.
Cooper Kupp – If not coming off an ACL tear, he’d be my favorite Rams receiver. He racked up 12 red zone targets in eight games, and 24 would have led the team. Six touchdowns in those eight games tells you where the bread and butter is for Jared Goff in the red zone.
Calvin Ridley – With the Falcons having such a high-flying offense and so many indoor games, Ridley should gain more than his 92 targets last year and approach 900 yards with 6-8 touchdowns.
Dante Pettis – He was flirting with Tier Three for me before this recent run of negative notes from camp came out. I’d like to see some more positivity these next couple weeks before pushing him back up there.
Christian Kirk – If everything goes to plan for the Cards, they can support multiple top 24 receivers.
