The Top Rookie WR for 2020

The Footballguys staff offer their picks for the top rookie wide receiver

Who is your top wide receiver in a normal fantasy league? Does your answer change for PPR leagues?

Jason Wood

I'm not going to shatter minds and expectations by saying Jerry Jeudy, right? Chances are Jeudy or CeeDee Lamb were atop your pre-draft rookie rankings, and with Lamb landing in Dallas and having to contend with Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup, I don't see how Jeudy isn't the logical choice. He's pro-ready, and steps into a Broncos offense that is desperate for a quality, full-time starter opposite Courtland Sutton. As long as Drew Lock shows some growth -- and I expect him to -- Jeudy should lead rookie receivers in targets, and won't have a steep learning curve to handle a pro-style playbook.

Phil Alexander

If I'm placing a bet on which rookie wide receiver sees the most targets, I'd go Justin Jefferson over Jeudy. Whereas Jeudy has competition from emerging stud Courtland Sutton, the team's second-round pick, KJ Hamler, and second-year tight end, Noah Fant, Jefferson has to contend with Adam Thielen and that's about it.
