2017 Fantasy Football Rankings - Wide Receivers (Jan. 31):
Top 10 | 11-20 | 21-40 | 41-60 | 61-100


  1. Antonio Brown, WR, Steelers. Bye: 0.
    Antonio Brown's stat line in 2015 was ridiculous. He caught 136 passes for 1,834 yards and 10 touchdowns that year. He was bound to regress a bit, and that's what happened, as his stat line dropped to 106-1,284-12. Still, that was still terrific, especially considering that Ben Roethlisberger missed some action.

    Projected 2017 Fantasy Stats: 125 catches. 1,630 yards. 13 total TDs.
    Projected 2017 Fantasy Points: 256.
    Projected 2017 PPR Fantasy Points: 381.

  2. Odell Beckham, WR, Giants. Bye: 0.
    Odell Beckham Jr. has registered at least 1,300 yards in each of his three seasons. His touchdown total dropped amid Eli Manning's struggles, but 10 scores (rather than 13), is still a solid figure. Beckham is an obvious first-round lock in fantasy drafts this summer.

    Projected 2017 Fantasy Stats: 104 catches. 1,440 yards. 13 total TD.
    Projected 2017 Fantasy Points: 237.
    Projected 2017 PPR Fantasy Points: 341.



  3. Jordy Nelson, WR, Packers. Bye: 0.
    Jordy Nelson had a ridiculous 2016 campaign. He caught 97 passes for 1,257 yards and 14 touchdowns. And yet, he wasn't even healthy for half the year! Nelson was on a tear down the stretch, so it's safe to assume that he'll be one of the top fantasy receivers of 2017.

    Projected 2017 Fantasy Stats: 99 catches. 1,410 yards. 14 total TDs.
    Projected 2017 Fantasy Points: 235.
    Projected 2017 PPR Fantasy Points: 334.

  4. Julio Jones, WR, Falcons. Bye: 0.
    Julio Jones had yet another monster year, catching 83 passes for 1,409 yards despite missing two games. Jones is a no-brainer WR1, but the one negative aspect to point out is that he has registered double-digit touchdowns only once in his career. For some reason, the Falcons just don't look in his direction in the red zone. That's what always used to happen to Andre Johnson, but Matt Ryan is obviously light years better than Matt Schaub was, so I don't know why that's happening.

    Projected 2017 Fantasy Stats: 109 catches. 1,570 yards. 8 total TDs.
    Projected 2017 Fantasy Points: 220.
    Projected 2017 PPR Fantasy Points: 329.

  5. A.J. Green, WR, Bengals. Bye: 0.
    A.J. Green missed the final six games of the regular season with a hamstring injury, which is a shame because he was having such a great year. Green tallied 964 yards in just 10 contests, so he could've approached 1,500 yards in a full year, which would've been a career season for him. Prior to that, Green missed just four games in his career, so expect him to be one of the top fantasy receivers once again in 2017.

    Projected 2017 Fantasy Stats: 91 catches. 1,480 yards. 10 total TDs.
    Projected 2017 Fantasy Points: 218.
    Projected 2017 PPR Fantasy Points: 309.



  6. Mike Evans, WR, Buccaneers. Bye: 0.
    Mike Evans registered 1,206 yards in 2015, but he was a huge disappointment. He caught only three touchdowns and dropped countless passes. He rebounded big time last year, increasing his yardage to 1,321 and catching 12 touchdowns. If Evans is mentally focused, he'll continue to be one of the top fantasy receivers.

    Projected 2017 Fantasy Stats: 92 catches. 1,310 yards. 12 total TDs.
    Projected 2017 Fantasy Points: 213.
    Projected 2017 PPR Fantasy Points: 305.

  7. Keenan Allen, WR, Chargers. Bye: 0.
    Keenan Allen was having a great game in the season opener. He caught six passes for 63 yards in the first half, but tore his ACL. Allen has played just nine contests in the past two years, so he's an obvious health risk. He definitely does offer a high reward, however.

    Projected 2017 Fantasy Stats: 104 catches. 1,460 yards. 8 total TDs.
    Projected 2017 Fantasy Points: 204.
    Projected 2017 PPR Fantasy Points: 308.

  8. Dez Bryant, WR, Cowboys. Bye: 0.
    Dez Bryant was considered a shaky option heading into the 2016 season because the Cowboys weren't expected to throw very much with Dak Prescott quarterbacking the team. Prescott has proven himself, however, and so Bryant's stats will certainly increase this upcoming year. Bryant will surely eclipse the 1,000-yard mark again.

    Projected 2017 Fantasy Stats: 83 catches. 1,220 yards. 11 total TDs.
    Projected 2017 Fantasy Points: 198.
    Projected 2017 PPR Fantasy Points: 281.



  9. T.Y. Hilton, WR, Colts. Bye: 0.
    T.Y. Hilton has yet to eclipse seven touchdown in any season in his career, but he's registered more than 1,300 yards in two of his past three years. Hilton will continue to serve as a low-end WR1 as long as Andrew Luck is healthy.

    Projected 2017 Fantasy Stats: 88 catches. 1,400 yards. 7 total TDs.
    Projected 2017 Fantasy Points: 192.
    Projected 2017 PPR Fantasy Points: 280.

  10. DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Texans. Bye: 0.
    I had my doubts about Brock Osweiler, but I figured DeAndre Hopkins would be perfectly fine because he produced with Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett throwing the ball to him. Osweiler, somehow, made Hopkins into an ordinary fantasy receiver, as Hopkins saw his catches (111 to 78), yards (1,521 to 954) and touchdowns (11 to 4) all plummet. I expect Hopkins to bounce back, even if Osweiler is still the starter, but hopefully he's not.

    Projected 2017 Fantasy Stats: 95 catches. 1,280 yards. 8 total TDs.
    Projected 2017 Fantasy Points: 181.
    Projected 2017 PPR Fantasy Points: 176.
