Going heavy early at wide receiver had been rewarded in recent years, but 2017 was a different story. The top groups at wide receiver in drafts did not separate from the competition or provide the consistent advantage as often as they had in the past, and wide receiver starting lineups made up of mid and late-round picks, or even a waiver wire pick or two were able to hang at the position. What does the landscape look like this year, and should it along with 2017 results influence us to have a different strategy at wide receiver?
HALL OF FAME
- Antonio Brown, PIT
The term “generational player” might get tossed around too often, but in Brown’s case, it absolutely applies. He’s clearly the No. 1 wide receiver in fantasy drafts, and there’s a case to be made for him over one or more of the top four running backs. Don’t feel like taking him with a top-four pick is a mistake.
