On Second Thought: Wide Receiver Edition - Footballguys

How my perspective on the wide receiver position has changed throughout the summer.

It’s hard to believe we’re a week away from the NFL regular season. After spending more than four months focusing on every bit of minutiae, every tidbit, every coach’s quote, and adjusting our rankings and projections, accordingly, a lot can change from our original expectations. Here’s a quick look at some of the most important changes from my initial rankings back in early May.

On Second Thought...

Calvin Ridley (ATL) is not the top fantasy rookie

Ridley is immensely talented and his time will come, but with Julio Jones primed for another monster season and Austin Hooper working one-on-one with Matt Ryan on chemistry, Ridley won't get enough targets to be the top rookie.

John Brown (BAL) has pulled me back in

I've been burned by John Brown before. Multiple times. But it's impossible to ignore the deafening praise from beat writers all summer long. He could easily outproduce Michael Crabtree.

Kelvin Benjamin (BUF) is a value pick

Like most, I had cast Kelvin Benjamin aside after a dismal 2017. The Bills are going to struggle this year, but Benjamin is unquestionably the best receiver on the roster, and someone has to lead the team in targets, yards, and touchdowns. It's not hard to project Benjamin as a solid WR3 that comes much cheaper on draft day.
