Updated 2020 Fantasy Football WR Rankings: No shortage of sleepers after loaded top tier

Updated 2020 Fantasy Football WR Rankings: No shortage of sleepers after loaded top tier

Rank Player 1 Michael Thomas, Saints. How is a player supposed to top 149 catches on 185 targets for 1,725 yards? Thomas might not repeat that, and it might not matter. He’s still likely to lead football in targets and receptions by enough that he stands alone in non-PPR formats (and in any PPR format, he’s easily the top wideout). The addition of Emmanuel Sanders could siphon just a few targets away from Thomas, but not enough to be concerned at all. 2 DeAndre Hopkins, Cardinals. Hopkins’ offseason move to Arizona sends him a few years back in terms of quarterback development, as he’ll pair with second-year QB Kyler Murray. But with the frequency Kliff Kingsbury’s offense throws and the rapid improvements Murray made a year ago, Hopkins should remain a high-volume, high-upside WR1.  3 Tyreek Hill, Chiefs. Hill was a top-10 receiver in fantasy points per game (FPPG) a year ago, so don’t let his injury-depleted numbers fool you. He’s still the same player who’s been drafted high the past few years. If anything, Patrick Mahomes might still get better, which is a scary thought and a reason to believe in Hill once more.  4 Julio Jones, Falcons. At one point last season, it looked like Julio had solved his touchdown problem, but then he stopped scoring again. It might be eternally frustrating that he doesn’t find the end zone more, but he ranked fifth last season in FPPG among wideouts despite only six touchdowns. Jones is as safe a bet for yards and catches as you can find outside Michael Thomas. 5 Davante Adams, Packers. Adams battled an injury during the middle part of last season, but when he was on the field, it was obvious he’s still Aaron Rodgers’ favorite target. In eight of Adams’ last nine games a season ago, he was targeted 10 or more times. There are no signs that will change in 2020, so lock him into your lineup each and every week and reap the rewards. 6 Chris Godwin, Buccaneers. Only Michael Thomas averaged more FPPG than Godwin in 2019. The switch to Tom Brady in 2020 should affect Godwin a bit less than Mike Evans, if we assume Godwin’s route tree to be a bit shorter overall than Evans’. Regardless, this offense will pass a ton, and Godwin’s one of the most gifted receivers in the league. Don’t expect much drop-off from his breakout 2019. 7 Cooper Kupp, Rams. Kupp stayed healthy last year, and it was glorious. He was fourth among WRs in total fantasy points, and that’s with Jared Goff ocasionally looking pretty goofy. Brandin Cooks is out of town now, which means Kupp may be leaned on even more heavily than he just was. He’s a rock-solid WR1 in any format.  8 Amari Cooper, Cowboys. Since Cooper was traded to Dallas, his connection with Dak Prescott has been one of fantasy football’s most fruitful. Maybe CeeDee Lamb pushes into the production of other Cowboys wideouts, but not Cooper. He’s a sure thing for another 1,000 yards and a run at double-digit touchdowns. 9 Odell Beckham Jr., Browns. If you wanted to rank OBJ 20 spots lower, it wouldn’t be insane. Even through all those years playing with a declining Eli Manning, Beckham put up numbers, but he struggled for long stretches of last season on an uber-disappointing Cleveland team. His 133 targets and 1,035 receiving yards are better indicators of his outlook this season than his 16-game low of four TDs in 2019. Expect a bounce back in 2020. 10 Kenny Golladay, Lions. Two seasons in a row, Golladay has surpassed 115 targets and 1,050 yards. He’s just entering his fourth year in the league, meaning that he could still have untapped upside. Another step up in level would make Golladay one of football’s top receivers.  11 JuJu Smith-Schuster, Steelers. It might be best for the Steelers to erase most of what happened through the air in 2019 from their memories. Ben Roethlisberger’s early-season injury meant JuJu was mostly trying to catch passes from Mason Rudolph and Duck Hodges. With Big Ben back, expect Smith-Schuster to return to his ’18 levels as one of the top wideouts in football.  12 Mike Evans, Buccaneers. Evans was right behind Godwin in fantasy points per game last year. What an astoundingly good passing offense Jameis Winston helmed in 2019, huh? At times, Tom Brady’s deep-ball arm strength looks washed up, but the G.O.A.T.’s deep-ball passing numbers themselves are still solid. Expect sheer volume to make Evans a highly valuable WR once again. 13 Adam Thielen, Vikings. It’s hard to say what the loss of Stefon Diggs will do for Thielen. Rookie Justin Jefferson should make up for some of that attention, but maybe not all. More concerning might be Thielen’s injury woes a year ago, which limited him to 10 games. Even in those 10 games, he averaged just 4.8 targets per game. As long as all reports indicate Thielen’s healthy, though, he should be Kirk Cousin’s top target and reach 1,000 yards for the third time in his career. 14 Tyler Lockett, Seahawks. Lockett has turned himself into a receiver who can do it all — go deep, work out of the slot and out wide, make gains out of short passes. He has a talented sidekick in DK Metcalf, too. Russell Wilson is still at the peak of his powers, and Lockett should remain a high-end WR2 in all fantasy formats in 2020. 15 Keenan Allen, Chargers. Allen has been catching passes from Philip Rivers for so long that the switch to Tyrod Taylor (and eventually Justin Herbert) leaves Allen with a bit of a question mark by his name. But the player we used to think of as injury prone has played 16 games in three consecutive seasons, averaged 101 catches across those years, and broken 1,190 receiving yards each time. Even a small drop-off with a different quarterback doesn’t stop Allen from having plenty of weeks where his output will look more like a WR1 than WR2 (and in PPR leagues, he might just be a WR1 altogether). 16 Courtland Sutton, Broncos. In a lot of ways, Sutton is following the Golladay path, just one year behind him. If so, that will mean a repeat of his breakout sophomore season. A player like Sutton, who depends a bit more on big plays and touchdowns than someone like Allen, could be too inconsistent for some fantasy owners’ tastes, but whoever drafts Sutton is getting a worthy WR2. 17 A.J. Brown, Titans. Brown made our Boom-or-Bust team for this season after a remarkable rookie year. That was due in large part to Brown receiving five or fewer targets in all but five games. His 20.2 yards per catch shows his week-to-week upside, and if you believe wholeheartedly in Ryan Tannehill, you can feel fine drafting Brown. Just be prepared for a few very quiet weeks around the big ones.  18 DeVante Parker, Dolphins. Parker is proof that it occasionally pays off to continue believing in post-hype sleepers. There’s always the chance he turns out to be a one-hit wonder, but more likely, he continues to make big plays whether it’s Ryan Fitzpatrick or Tua Tagovailoa throwing him the ball. 19 DJ Chark, Jaguars. What a revelation the Chark-Gardner Minshew connection was last year. There will remain some competition for targets with Dede Westbrook, Chris Conley and rookie Laviska Shenault, but Chark should remain the top dog in a passing offense that can only be on the rise. 20 T.Y. Hilton, Colts. Hilton’s on the wrong side of 30, joined with a new QB in Philip Rivers, and his real name is Eugene. That being said, as long as the injuries that nagged Hilton in 2019 are no longer an issue, he remains a solid WR2 pick as the top option in his offense. 21 D.J. Moore, Panthers. That Moore brok eout so much in a sophomore season marred by inconsistent quarterback play is a testament to his ability. We’ll assume Teddy Bridgewater is a step up from the likes of Kyle Allen, but Moore has already proved it doesn’t really matter. If Carolina’s new QB is a bigger upgrade than expected, Moore could challenge for a WR1-level season. 22 Robert Woods, Rams. Woods has now exceeded 1,100 yards in two-straight years, making a player once thought of as a PPR special into a solid WR2 in any format. Brandin Cooks departure could send a few more targets Woods’ way, too. You can feel comfortable in what Woods will provide in 2020.  23 Allen Robinson, Bears. Robinson is supremely talented, and since joining Chicago, he hasn’t quite had the quarterback to match. Maybe Nick Foles reaches his peak level that we’ve seen on a few occasions, but more likely, he’s mediocre, resulting in potential inconsistency for Robinson. Robinson’s best weeks will win you matchups, but he could have a few clunkers.  24 Stefon Diggs, Bills. People aren’t overdrafting Diggs — he’s going right at the back-end WR2 area that our rankings would suggest. Even there, he doesn’t come without risk. Josh Allen still can be inconsistent, and there are a lot of mouths to feed in Buffalo’s offense. Diggs should remain efficient on a per-target basis, but his target numbers could drop off a bit from his Minnesota peak. 25 Calvin Ridley, Falcons. We were higher on Ridley than basically anyone else a year ago, actually ranking him higher than he is right now. He proceeded to nearly equal his rookie-season stats and remain marred by some inconsistency. You can get Ridley at a fair price this season on the bet that with Austin Hooper gone and another offseason under his belt, he’ll gain consistency and therefore production.  26 DK Metcalf, Seahawks. Metcalf will remain a top pick in any “looks-the-part” draft you want, and he delivered more production than some expected as a rookie. He finished 37th in FPPG last year, and some growth could see him slot into the back-end of WR2 territory this season. 27 Terry McLaurin, Washington. McLaurin surprised many with how good he was from the moment he stepped on an NFL field last year, so imagine how good he would’ve looked with competent quarterback play. Washington’s run game is a mess, so expect Dwayne Haskins to lean on McLaurin once again in 2020.  28 Will Fuller V, Texans. Fuller is one of the higher-risk, higher-reward players you’ll find in fantasy football, and that’s especially true in 2020. He’s always brought with him immense injury risk, and now he’s potentially Houston’s top wide receiver with DeAndre Hopkins gone. That almost certainly promises a few weeks in which he threatens his 217-yard, three-TD 2019 Week 5, but probably a few more in which he slots into your Injured Reserve spot.  29 Jarvis Landry, Browns. Landry managed to produce his standard, high-level PPR season in 2019 despite the Browns’ struggles. The addition of Austin Hooper likely hurts his target share more than it hurts OBJ, so Landry could fall off a bit in value. That being said, he has a tendency to go on long slides occasionally in standard drafts, and he won’t be worthless by any means in 2020.  30 Marquise Brown, Ravens. Brown burst onto the scene last year when he was surely on fantasy owners’ benches or on their waiver wire, only to never quite repeat his monster Week 1. The last time he topped 50 yards in a game was Week 10. So, yes, he’s Lamar Jackson’s No. 1 WR, and yes, he has a high ceiling each week, but that also comes with a very low floor in a run-heavy offense that is much more likely to feature its tight ends in the red zone.  31 Emmanuel Sanders, Saints. Sanders simply isn’t the player who starred in Denver a few years ago, but he also showed when given the chance last year that he can still cut it. His value in New Orleans will hinge on how much he can dig in to the two-headed monster that is Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara. If Sanders can find a way to get 90 targets his way, he can approach 900 yards and have solid PPR value as a WR3. If the offense doesn’t morph much in his favor, he’s no better than a flex option.  32 Brandin Cooks, Texans. With no preseason games and an unusual offseason, it’s not obvious how Cooks’ role will compare to Fuller’s in Houston. Cooks has had a better NFL peak than Fuller has, but Cooks also was a huge disappointment in 2019 with the Rams. If you can get Cooks as your WR3 or even in your flex spot, he’s worth the risk, though – there’s a chance he seizes on the majority of DeAndre Hopkins’ 2019 production.  33 John Brown, Bills. Brown should see a drop-off in production now that Stefon Diggs is in Buffalo, but there will still be big weeks for Brown. He’ll likely revert to his earlier-career deep-threat role, and with Josh Allen’s arm strength, he could have some weeks reminiscent of former Bills wideout Lee Evans. 34 Christian Kirk, Cardinals. Kirk’s third year in the NFL could’ve been his breakout season, but DeAndre Hopkins has clouded that picture. It’s tricky to anticipate how Kirk’s and Larry Fitzgerald’s numbers will be impacted by Hopkins, but it almost certainly can’t be good. Expect Kirk to have enough solid weeks to make him a flex option but to combine that with weeks where the targets just all go elsewhere.  35 Tyler Boyd, Bengals. There are two ways this goes: Either Boyd has surpassed A.J. Green and remains a WR2 in all formats despite Green’s return, or the veteran takes back over the No. 1 role and limits Boyd’s output. You can count on Boyd in PPR formats either way, but standard-league owners should be cautious with Boyd.  36 Julian Edelman, Patriots. What is Julian Edelman without Tom Brady? We’re about to find out. He’s still effective enough out of the slot to make him a solid WR3 in PPR formats, but in standard leagues, this offense has enough questions to wonder whether his yardage and scoring will be enough to make it in your lineup. 37 Deebo Samuel, 49ers. With no Emmanuel Sanders threatening Samuel’s production, he has every chance to be the no-doubt No. 2 option in San Francisco’s passing game behind George Kittle. If the 49ers decide to air it out a bit more than last season, Samuel could possibly increase his 2019 totals from 81 targets to 100, 57 catches to 70 and 802 yards to 1,000. The only thing holding him back from being about 10 spots higher is the foot injury that’s threatening to force him to start the season late. 38 A.J. Green, Bengals. What should we expect out of Green after he missed all of the 2019 season? It’s anybody’s guess, especially with a new quarterback (albeit a good one) in Joe Burrow. Green’s been remarkably consistent throughout his NFL career when he’s been on the field, always featuring an 1,000-yard pace and finding plenty of paydirt. This pick isn’t without risk, due to injuries and age, but it could pay off in a big way.  39 Marvin Jones, Lions. Every season, there’s Marvin Jones hanging out in the 40s of our WR rankings. The Lions didn’t do anything that will stop him from repeating his 2019 season, and if his touchdown luck falls the same way again, he could find himself among the top-20 WRs in fantasy points per game once again (although don’t bet on that with T.J. Hockenson back to health as a red-zone asset). 40 DeSean Jackson, Eagles. We’re at the point of Jackson’s career that you just hope he stays healthy, can suit up in your flex spot and can grab a 50-yard touchdown. Otherwise, he’s not of much use to fantasy teams. He’s just better at catching 50-yard touchdowns than most players in the league, so his upside keeps him draftable, as does the lack of proven wide receiver talent in Philly while Alshon Jeffery recovers from a foot injury. 41 Michael Gallup, Cowboys. If anyone in this offense is hurt by the drafting of CeeDee Lamb, it’s Gallup. He finished 12th in FPPG among WRs in 2019, so he’s worth drafting on that level of upside. But if his role is reduced due to Lamb’s presence, Gallup could become a lot more boom-or-bust by midseason. 42 Mike Williams, Chargers. The biggest hit to the Chargers’ passing game as long as Tyrod Taylor is the QB might come to Williams. Keenan Allen and Hunter Henry should both get theirs as Taylor feels comfortable throwing underneath passes. It’s William’s 20.4 yards per catch from a year ago that feels almost impossible to repeat with Taylor, much less of a gunslinger than Rivers. Either that yardage average stays the same on a lot fewer catches, or Williams’ route tree adjusts to make him less of a big-play threat. Either way, he’s hard to trust on draft day in more than a flex role.  43 Jamison Crowder, Jets. Sam Darnold loved to force-feed Crowder at times last year, which is a boon to his PPR value heading into a season where that will likely be the case again. His four-year low of 10.7 yards per catch means Crowder is a lot less exciting in standard leagues, but he’ll approach WR3 viability in PPR formats.  44 Diontae Johnson, Steelers. Johnson somehow looked much more comfortable than JuJu Smith-Schuster working with the Steelers’ less-than-steller backup QBs in 2019. Who knows whether he can keep it up with Ben Roethlisberger back, but Johnson’s surprising rookie year showed he can be a valuable PPR player if granted a similar, 90-target season. 45 Darius Slayton, Giants. Slayton’s almost certainly the most-talented receiver the Giants have, but his value is more capped by Daniel Jones’ inconsistencies than Tate’s is. Slayton depends more on passes down the field and in the end zone. A year ago, Slayton was 32nd among WRs in FPPG. You’ll likely draft him in a flex spot, as he’s going 42nd among WRs in FantasyPros’ ADP data, but you might come to count on him as a WR3. 46 Golden Tate, Giants. Tate played 11 games for the Giants in 2019 and saw 85 targets come his way, good for 7.7 targets per contest. That’s a rate that, if it continues, almost guarantees Tate WR3 value in PPR leagues. Daniel Jones even found Tate over the top a few times, which makes him possibly more valuable in standard leagues than he’s clasically been thought. 47 Mecole Hardman, Chiefs. Hardman might have a season not dissimilar from DeSean Jackson. There will be the few games with monster catches for touchdowns that make his season-long stats look pretty decent, but it’ll be tough to predict when they’re coming. Even an injury to Tyreek Hill or Sammy Watkins won’t guarantee Hardman consistency, but his biggest weeks will be fun to have him in your flex spot.  48 Henry Ruggs III, Raiders. Ruggs is a big, strong, fast wideout, the type that Al Davis surely would’ve loved to take himself. The question is whether Derek Carr has the arm talent to make proper use of Ruggs. Then you’ve got the crowded receiver situation, which also features Hunter Renfrow and fellow rookie Bryan Edwards with Tyrell Williams out of the season. Picking Ruggs as a WR4 or WR5 is betting on his talent outdoing the things working against him. 49 CeeDee Lamb, Cowboys. Lamb likely begins the season as the Cowboys’ No. 3 WR, and while he’s not the same player as Randall Cobb was a year ago, Cobb did receive 82 targets in that role in 2019. An 80-plus target season for Lamb would make him worthy of weekly flex consideration after his great career at Oklahoma.  50 Anthony Miller, Bears. Miller saw 85 targets last season and could be looking at more in 2020 with Taylor Gabriel out of the way. All that’s left is counting on Nick Foles to deliver. If Miller can increase to 100 targets and do better on a TD front than the two he caught last year, you could be looking at the fantasy WR3 we’ve been predicting for a while now.  51 Jerry Jeudy, Broncos. Jeudy should be the No. 2 WR for Denver behind Courtland Sutton. On a team with lots of running talent, maybe that doesn’t convert to a consistent week-to-week output, but it likely leads to a few big weeks when Jeudy’s supreme route-running and ability to get behind a defense connect with Drew Lock’s inconsistently strong arm.  52 Sterling Shepard, Giants. Shepard, despite being the longest-tenured Giant among their top-three WRs, might be the odd man out when it comes to consistent fantasy production in 2020. Tate is the better possession receiver, and Slayton is the better playmaker. That leaves Shepard likely fighting for scraps behind Evan Engram and Saquon Barkley, too. An injury or role shift could make Shepard relevant quickly, though, so he’s not a bad draft selection. 53 N’Keal Harry, Patriots. New England’s offense is full of questions due to the departure of Tom Brady, so relying on a second-year player who didn’t do much last year might not be the safest play. But if you only have to draft the talented Harry onto your bench, it could pay dividends if the better fit with Cam Newton (or Jarrett Stidham) is a big, athletic receiver like Harry instead of a slot weapon like Edelman.  54 Preston Williams, Dolphins. Williams ranked inside the top-50 of FPPG at WR last year despite probably being an unknown to the majority of fantasy owners. He was a first-round talent in college but fell because of character concerns. So far, there have been no problems there, and a couple of Miami opt outs mean Williams could see a target rise from 60 to 100, which would have him pushing for WR3 value if things break right, though he has to prove fully recovered from his torn ACL last year. 55 Allen Lazard, Packers. Green Bay could keep trying to turn Marquez Valdes-Scantling into a productive player that he simply isn’t, but more likely, Lazard becomes the No. 2 WR full-time for the Packers this fall. Lazard closed out the final two games of 2019 with 17 targets, nine catches, 114 yards and a touchdown across the two weeks. He’s not an exciting pick, but he could provide some consistent production as a bye-week fill-in.  56 Justin Jefferson, Vikings. Jefferson’s stats for LSU en route to a national championship last year are insane: 111 catches, 1,540 yards, 18 touchdowns. No, he probably won’t repeat that line in the NFL, especially as a rookie, but he was drafted in the first round for a reason. He shouldn’t have competition for Minnesota’s No. 2 WR role, which makes him a flex selection with major upside in fantasy drafts. 57 Michael Pittman Jr., Colts. Behind T.Y. Hilton, the Colts’ WR situation could break a lot of different ways. If Pittman, the rookie from USC, can claim consistent targets, he could prove a touchdown threat with his 6-4 frame that Hilton isn’t. 58 Curtis Samuel, Panthers. Samuel was 46th in FPPG among receivers last year despite catching just 54 of his 106 targets. It’s safe to expect Teddy Bridgewater will complete a higher percentage of the passes he throws to Samuel, which could make the Ohio State product a bench selection with upside. The additioni of Robby Anderson could eat into his targets, though. 59 Van Jefferson, Rams. Jefferson is Josh Reynolds’ competition for the No. 3 WR role on the Rams. If the rookie from Florida gets the job, he’ll be an injury away from immense fantasy value. 60 Robby Anderson, Panthers. Anderson is the anti-PPR, standard-league special. We’re not quite sure of his role with Moore and Samuel. Likely, he’s a similar deep threat to what he was in New York. Whether or not Bridgewater can find him deep enough remains to be seen. But Anderson is another one of those guys, like DeSean Jackson, that can make his week count with just one play. 61 Breshad Perriman, Jets. The question with Perriman is this: Do you think his white hot finish to the 2019 season can carry over to a new team and a lesser quarterback after Perriman struggled his whole career prior to that? He has the physical tools that made him a first-round pick, and maybe Sam Darnold has a step up he can take. If you want a safer bench piece, go with Fitzgerald or Westbrook. For upside, though, Perriman’s your guy. 62 J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, Eagles. With Jalen Reagor and Alshon Jeffery both hurt, Arcega-Whiteside could have a clear path toward playing time. The ’19 second-round pick was invisible as a rookie but has great size and could be an ideal complement to DeSean Jackson if he can step up. His TD potential will be through the roof if he gets playing time. 63 Sammy Watkins, Chiefs. Watkins was a big piece for the Chiefs in the playoffs, but he rarely seems to deliver the value we want despite his role as No. 2 WR for Patrick Mahomes. Between his injuries and lack of taking that next step, Watkins could be passed by Hardman this year and become nothing more than an all-hope, little-delivery bench piece in fantasy. 64 Larry Fitzgerald, Cardinals. Fitzgerald likely remains a PPR option in your flex spot despite the presence of Hopkins, thanks to the volume of passes sure to be thrown in Arizona. But his days of being a standard-league starter are behind the future Hall-of-Famer.  65 Dede Westbrook, Jaguars. Westbrook could be hurt by the arrival of rookie Laviska Shenault. And he’s not a standard-league weapon with his low yards per catch and few touchdowns. But you could do worse as a PPR bye-week fill-in. 66 Kendrick Bourne, 49ers. Bourne showed he could find the end zone last year, he’s only worth drafting if he can beat out Aiyuk for a starting job in the San Francisco offense. 67 Alshon Jeffery, Eagles. There’ll probably be a week or two this season where Jeffery (foot) is worth playing in fantasy, maybe early on when he’s fully healthy and Philadelphia has a favorable matchup. But good health has been hard to come by and he’s getting up there in age. His journey to fantasy irrelevance is near. 68 Parris Campbell, Colts. Campbell will have to hold off at least Michael Pittman Jr. and Zach Pascal if he wants fantasy relevance. But remember the hype Campbell got last preseason? Maybe we should’ve saved it for this one. There’s upside here for the lightning quick, former Ohio State star. 69 Brandon Aiyuk, 49ers. Aiyuk was one of the top receivers in the 2020 draft and rightly went in the first round to San Francisco. The main problem for his fantasy value is that San Francisco passes less than basically anyone in the league. He’s a great dynasty/keeper league pick, but his 2020 value will probably max out at bye-week fill-in. 70 Hunter Renfrow, Raiders. Renfrow is a good match for Derek Carr’s limited arm talent and should find himself in PPR starting lineups some weeks. Don’t worry yourself with him in standard leagues. 71 John Hightower, Eagles. With Jalen Reagor set to miss time, Hightower could battle Arcega-Whiteside for playing time across from DeSean Jackson. The fifth-round rookie has impressed in camp and he could be worth a late-round flier. That said, he’s not guaranteed to start, so he’d just be a speculative pickup.  72 Bryan Edwards, Raiders. Tyrell Williams’ season-ending injury brings the rookie from South Carolina into a probable Week 1 starting role. It’s hard to see how Oakland’s WR target shares break down before the season actually gets going, but Edwards’ capabilities could align well with Derek Carr’s limited arm talent. 73 Russell Gage, Falcons. Watch early in the season to see where Austin Hooper’s vacated targets seem to be going. If they’re heading to Gage more than Hayden Hurst, check him out in PPR leagues. 74 James Washington, Steelers. Washington let us down as a sleeper last year, but the reasoning wasn’t terrible. Keep an eye early on to if he links up with Roethlisberger enough to push past Diontae Johnson on the depth chart. If so, he can push for flex value. 75 Corey Davis, Titans. We know what we’re getting with Davis at this point, at least in the Tennessee offense, and that’s nothing more than a bye-week fill-in. 76 Tee Higgins, Bengals. Higgins should be drafted in all leagues due to his talent, although not started Week 1. But wait until A.J. Green gets hurt. Higgins could take his role and never give it back. 77 Cole Beasley, Bills. Beasley’s targets may decline below 100 in 2020 thanks to the addition of Stefon Diggs, but Beasley proved enough of a security blanket last year that his PPR value should remain as a back-end flex play. 78 Denzel Mims, Jets. Beyond Crowder and Perriman, there likely is little room for another contributor in the New York passing game, even a talented rookie from Baylor like Mims. 79 Kenny Stills, Texans. Stills will fight Randall Cobb for first dibs after the inevitable Will Fuller or Brandin Cooks injury. Whichever one positions themselves best for that scenario will be a popular waiver-wire addition. 80 Randall Cobb, Texans. See Kenny Stills. 81 Scotty Miller, Buccaneers. Tom Brady needs a shifty slot receiver, doesn’t he? 82 Nelson Agholor, Raiders. Agholor is pretty much a worse version of Hunter Renfrow at this point, which means his PPR value only comes if Renfrow gets hurt. 83 Devin Duvernay, Ravens. Duvernay is an uber-athletic slot receiver out of Texas. There might not be room in Baltimore’s offense for that skill set to have value, but he’s a good target in PPR dynasty and keeper leagues. 84 Miles Boykin, Ravens. Boykin’s only shot at fantasy value is an injury to Marquise Brown. 85 Danny Amendola, Lions. Amendola was targeted 97 times last year. He definitely benefited from T.J. Hockenson’s injury, but it wasn’t a total fluke. Amendola could see 80 or 90 targets again and hold some PPR value in bye weeks. 86 Olabisi Johnson, Vikings. There’s not enough passing in Minnesota for Johnson to matter outside of an injury to Adam Thielen or Justin Jefferson. 87 Laviska Shenault Jr., Jaguars. Shenault probably won’t push the Jaguars’ established secondary receivers out of the way until late in the season. Next year could be the time to target Shenault. 88 KJ Hamler, Broncos. Hamler is probably one or two deep down the weapons depth chart in Denver to matter in 2020, but he’s a solid dynasty and keeper target after the big-name rookie wideouts are taken. 89 Jalen Guyton, Chargers. Mike Williams’ injury could have the speedster Guyton mattering in Week 1. 90 Tre’Quan Smith, Saints. Smith was a sleeper on this site last year but didn’t deliver, and now Emmanuel Sanders is in town. Unless Michael Thomas gets hurt, don’t worry about Tre’Quan. 91 John Ross III, Bengals. If A.J. Green gets hurt again, Ross will fight with Auden Tate and Alex Erickson for fantasy value. 92 Steven Sims, Washington. Sims is more of a gadget player, and he’d need Percy Harvin-like usage to matter in fantasy leagues. 93 Josh Reynolds, Rams. Reynolds could get the first crack at the No. 3 WR role in L.A. After averaging 15.5 yards per catch in 2019, an increase in targets could make him a high-upside bye-week fill-in in standard leagues. 94 Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Packers. MVS is totally off the board in PPR leagues, but his deep-ball prowess makes him a very poor man’s DeSean Jackson in standard leagues. 95 Zach Pascal, Colts. Pascal held down value when T.Y. Hilton went down last year, and he’d need at least that to happen to have any value this year again. 96 Trey Quinn, Washington. Quinn is a deep league, PPR special. He won’t make any big plays, but he’ll grab enough balls out of the slot to be worth rostering in a 16-team PPR format. 97 Tajae Sharpe, Vikings. Sharpe could rival Johnson for top backup duties in Minnesota. 98 Chase Claypool, Steelers. Claypool would need to do some depth-chart leaping to matter in year one. 99 Jalen Reagor, Eagles. Reagor was a potential sleeper and starter for the Eagles before suffering a shoulder injury that will keep him out for at least four weeks. He’s now more of a guy to watch on the waiver wire once he gets healthy and can return to action. 100 Joe Reed, Chargers
