Top 12 WR Rankings for 2021 Fantasy Football
I'm not going to break down everyone on here like i did with the RBs, instead we're going to go into the guys i'm furthest away from in ADP.
no body got fuckin time to hear tyreek hill should be picked really high among WRs. not in this economy.
the first one that should jump off the screen here is keenan allen. i went in on keenan in the WR rankings debate video we did on FTP, but now you get me crystal clear yelling about keenan allen.
he's my WR4 because what I think this offense will be like with Justin Herbert under center.
They don't have a run game, they tried the Josh Kelley thing last year. It was like trying animal trying hot yoga, aint happening.
New OC, Joe Lombardi in there, but I still think this will be a very pass heavy offense, that just completely runs through Herbert. And Lombardi seems to know what fantasy football twitter learned 5 years ago...
This just feels like a situation not to think too hard about.
I'm not going to argue that it could get even better from an accuracy standpoint in 2021, but I'm not NOT going to argue that.
Wherever you have Keenan Allen in your rankings I can assure you is too low.
The next one that jumps out is Davante Adams, for obvious reasons. If Rodgers comes byke, Adams is WR1, if it's Jordan Love under center, this is probably where he'll be, around WR10. We just have absolutely no idea what we'll get from Love. Idt we've ever seen a chemistry like Rodgers with Adams before, you'd love to say Adams is a lock for 150+ targets no matter who is under center, but who knows. A lot of Adams' production comes from TDs obviously, are we getting those with Love? And just like beautifully placed back shoulder 37 yard gains from Rodgers to Adams, we're definitely not getting those with Love. Adams feels like he'll be what Allen Robinson has been for the last few years if there's no Rodgers. A boring low-end WR1.
The last two that we should talk about are the Titans WRs.
I have AJ Brown up at and Julio at WR12, so both WR1s. I don't think Julio has fallen off at all.
The obvious concern is just what this passing volume will be like in Tennessee. But they have nothing else in the receiving game, like literally nothing else. No more Corey Davis, no more Jonnu Smith. NO MORE TAJAE SHARPE :( There's no reason AJB and Julio can't see 25% target shares each.
The list of players with a 25%+ target share last year:
11 players. 7 of the 11 were WR1s. You have like Robby Anderson and Hollywood that really giving this list a bad rap - but the guys who didn't either stink compared to Julio and/or had QBs way worse than Tannehill.
Julio will be just fine. He's not falling off a cliff, and the there's really not a big difference in PPG when you're talking about fantasy WRs out of like the top 6-8 anyways. He's fine where he's going I promise.
AJB went from getting like 170 targets to a normal 140 probably, but still one of the best WRs in the league in doing just about everything, so he's a WR1 for sure this year. The man had surgery on both his knees this offseason lolHe said he should've been out since week 2 lol.
This is Julio Jones all over again. Maybe Megatron fam. In 2-3 years AJ Brown is going to be something unbelievable.
