2021 Fantasy Football Rankings - Wide Receivers (Sept. 5):
Top 10 | 11-20 | 21-40 | 41-60 | 61-100


Other Positions: QB | RB | TE

  1. Terry McLaurin, WR, Redskins. Bye: 9.

    Scary Terry McLaurin has been excellent through two seasons despite playing with terrible or mediocre quarterbacks. Imagine how much better he'll be with superior quarterback play. Ryan Fitzpatrick will certainly qualify over Alex Smith.



    Projected 2021 Fantasy Stats: 96 catches. 1,360 yards. 9 total TDs.
    Projected 2021 Fantasy Points: 200.
    Projected 2021 PPR Fantasy Points: 296.



  2. Chris Godwin, WR, Buccaneers. Bye: 9.

    Chris Godwin missed a handful of games last year with a broken finger. If he's healthy in 2021, he may not hit his 1,330 yard figure from 2019 - even with the extra game - but he could get to double-digit touchdowns.



    Projected 2021 Fantasy Stats: 89 catches. 1,290 yards. 10 total TDs.
    Projected 2021 Fantasy Points: 199.
    Projected 2021 PPR Fantasy Points: 288.



  3. A.J. Brown, WR, Titans. Bye: 13.

    A.J. Brown made some huge plays in his second season, logging 10 touchdowns despite playing in a run-first offense. Brown should continue to dominate with more experience.



    Projected 2021 Fantasy Stats: 71 catches. 1,170 yards. 12 total TDs.
    Projected 2021 Fantasy Points: 199.
    Projected 2021 PPR Fantasy Points: 270.



  4. Allen Robinson, WR, Bears. Bye: 10.

    "I'm sure Allen Robinson would do anything for some great quarterbacking." I wrote this in my previous update, so Robinson may have sold his soul because the Bears somehow landed Justin Fields in the draft.



    Projected 2021 Fantasy Stats: 108 catches. 1,310 yards. 9 total TDs.
    Projected 2021 Fantasy Points: 195.
    Projected 2021 PPR Fantasy Points: 303.



  5. Diontae Johnson, WR, Steelers. Bye: 7.

    Props to Kenny from the WalterFootball YouTube channel for calling Diontae Johnson's breakout year. Johnson became the No. 1 receiver on the Steelers and had a huge season.



    Projected 2021 Fantasy Stats: 96 catches. 1,150 yards. 9 total TDs.
    Projected 2021 Fantasy Points: 179.
    Projected 2021 PPR Fantasy Points: 275.



  6. Chase Claypool, WR, Steelers. Bye: 7.

    Chase Claypool had an amazing rookie year. As long as Ben Roethlisberger is healthy, he'll have top-10 upside if one of the other receivers is injured. If not, he'll still be a viable WR3 at the very least.



    Projected 2021 Fantasy Stats: 80 catches. 1,130 yards. 9 total TDs.
    Projected 2021 Fantasy Points: 177.
    Projected 2021 PPR Fantasy Points: 257.



  7. Jerry Jeudy, WR, Broncos. Bye: 11.

    JULY 28 UPDATE: Aaron Rodgers has agreed to return to the Packers, so he will not be quarterbacking the Broncos this season. That said, Denver could still trade for Deshaun Watson, so all hope isn't lost for these Bronco skill-position players.

    Jerry Jeudy had some bright spots in his rookie year, but he dropped way too many passes. He can only get better next year, especially if Denver ends up trading for Aaron Rodgers.



    Projected 2021 Fantasy Stats: 82 catches. 1,180 yards. 8 total TDs.
    Projected 2021 Fantasy Points: 176.
    Projected 2021 PPR Fantasy Points: 258.



  8. Antonio Brown, WR, Buccaneers. Bye: 9.

    Antonio Brown is a ticking time bomb in regard to getting into trouble off the field. His upside is through the roof though, as evidenced by when he stepped in for an injured Mike Evans in Week 17.



    Projected 2021 Fantasy Stats: 93 catches. 1,030 yards. 9 total TDs.
    Projected 2021 Fantasy Points: 174.
    Projected 2021 PPR Fantasy Points: 267.



  9. Corey Davis, WR, Jets. Bye: 6.

    AUG. 22 UPDATE: I was wrong about Corey Davis, apparently. I thought the Jets overpaid him this offseason because he had been a huge disappointment prior to the 2020 campaign. However, Davis has been incredible this preseason, particularly in this game. Zach Wilson targeted Davis six times in less than a half, and Davis hauled in four of those passes for 70 yards. Davis could be a PPR monster this year.

    AUG. 15 UPDATE: Corey Davis was Zach Wilson's favorite receiver in the preseason opener. Wilson targeted Davis twice as often as any other player. Davis converted two of his four targets for 18 yards in about a quarter of work. If this game was any indication, Davis should have another solid year.

    Corey Davis never lived up to expectations entering 2020, but he finally had a good season. Catching five or more passes in eight of the 14 games he played, Davis logged 65 receptions for 984 yards and five touchdowns. If this wasn't a fluke, Davis will be a fine WR3 this year, as he'll be playing in an offense that will throw the ball more often.



    Projected 2021 Fantasy Stats: 84 catches. 1,160 yards. 8 total TDs.
    Projected 2021 Fantasy Points: 174.
    Projected 2021 PPR Fantasy Points: 267.



  10. Robert Woods, WR, Rams. Bye: 11.

    "Robert Woods would be a much better option if Jared Goff were consistent. Instead, for every 100-yard performance, Woods is good for a sub-30 clunker." I wrote this last time. Little did I know that it would be Matthew Stafford who would be throwing to Woods.



    Projected 2021 Fantasy Stats: 92 catches. 1,310 yards. 8 total TDs.
    Projected 2021 Fantasy Points: 173.
    Projected 2021 PPR Fantasy Points: 265.
