WR Rankings - Fantasy Football Preview

No position has as much turnover from season-to-season as Wide Receiver. Receivers who excelled can fall off the map and rookies can come in and make an instant impact. Receiver is also an extremely debatable position since so many factors contribute to a successful receiver’s season. QB play, play-calling, coverage, other weapons, weather conditions, and offensive system all play a pivotal role. The volatility makes receiver a difficult position to rank.

At FantasyCPR we’ve been working through the fantasy positions starting with QB Rankings Monday and continuing with RB Rankings yesterday. Today we’re once again privileged to have our five-writer panel of Jeff Magina and Tonni Shook of The Landry Hat along with Steve Copps, Matt Tuckness, and Zach Thompson of Fantasy CPR. There was lots of disparity between the rankings. Here’s the average ranks of the top 50 WR. Feel free to let us know who you think is too high or too low in the comments section and make sure to come back tomorrow as our panel tries to tackle Tight Ends.
