Fantasy Football Rankings
(USA TODAY Sports)

1. Odell Beckham Jr- NYG

  • The talent is there, the system is in place, and we as fans get to sit back and watch.

2. Antonio Brown- PIT

  • Mr. Consistent at the WR position, but it will be hard to continue his unbelievable pace.

3. Julio Jones- ATL

  • He could be the most talented WR in the NFL and with Muhammad Sanu joining him in ATL, could this be the season that Jones finishes as the No.1 WR in fantasy?

4. Dez Bryant- DAL

  • Expect to see more X’s thrown up this season with a healthy Tony Romo passing the football.

5. A.J. Green- CIN

  • Green lost Marvin Jones (Lions) and Sanu (Falcons) as teammates on the outside, but that should not hurt his fantasy value—if anything it could help increase it.

6. Mike Evans- TB

  • Another year with Jameis Winston under center should do wonders for Evans who has put together a solid career in his first few seasons.

T-7. Allen Robinson- JAC
T-7. DeAndre Hopkins- HOU

  • Robinson and Hopkins are true WR1 in terms of fantasy and should be drafted as such.

8. Amari Cooper- OAK

  • Carr and Cooper could be the most dangerous QB-WR combo under the age of 25. Cooper is only touching the surface of what he is capable of.

9. Alshon Jefferey- CHI

  • A healthy Jeffery can do wonders for the Bears offense and for your fantasy team. He is the only true, proven weapon on the Bears offense.

10. Julian Edelman- NE

  • If you are in a PPR league, Edelman could be even higher. His volume of catches will be there, but he needs to be more of a red zone target to be a true WR1 in fantasy.

11. Kelvin Benjamin- CAR

  • Coming off of an ACL injury, Benjamin is the largest question mark in the Top 20. But as Cam’s No.1 option he shouldn’t have any issues loading up on fantasy points.

12. Jordy Nelson- GB

  • Similar to Benjamin, Nelson is coming off of an ACL injury, but when Aaron Rodgers is your quarterback–as long as Jordy is healthy he is going to be the Packers best fantasy option.

13. Brandon Marshall- NYJ

  • Marshall’s value increased when Ryan Fitzpatrick re-signed with the Jets, but don’t expect the same Fitzmagic in 2016, he usually falters his second year on a team.

14. Keenan Allen- SD

  • Philip Rivers No.1 option flies under the radar, but he capable of being a WR1 in most formats.

15. Demaryius Thomas- DEN

  • The QB situation in Denver hurts Thomas’ value, but if they can find a competent quarterback, Thomas is a solid WR2 this season.

16. T.Y. Hilton- IND

  • If Andrew Luck is healthy for the whole season, Hilton could be higher than this spot—but that remains to be seen. If your league rewards long TD’s Hilton is your guy.

17. Tyler Lockett- SEA

  • I’m higher on Lockett than most, but his versatility, sure-hands and ability to stretch the field will make him Russell Wilson’s No.1 target by seasons-end.

18. Brandin Cooks- NO

  • Cooks has the potential to be a Top 10 WR, but with Drew Brees aging and his stats decreasing every season since 2010, something has to give.

19. Golden Tate- DET

  • The new No.1 WR in Detroit should have his fair share of targets and will be more valuable in PPR formats.

20. Jeremy Maclin- KC

  • Maclin fits Andy Reid’s offense perfectly and Alex Smith showed last year he is capable of throwing to his wide-outs. Expect a similar season this year.

No. 21-50

21. Jarvis Landry- MIA

22. Jordan Matthews- PHI

23. Randall Cobb- GB
