fantasy-football-receiver-rankings

Many dynasty fantasy football leagues already had their active phases of the offseason, but most normal leagues start picking up speed in July and August. You’ve come to the right place if you’re looking for a second opinion on available wide receivers. This list focuses on standard leagues, but I’ll write a ranking for points per reception (PPR) leagues later this spring.

I’ve placed the wide receivers into nine tiers. Readers can use these tiers to get a feel for the general groups I lump fantasy players in. The tiers should serve as a more accurate measuring stick for players than the individual rankings.

I’ll continue consistently releasing fantasy rankings throughout the spring and summer. Check my profile for all of the other articles.
