Wide Receiver Tiers, Targets, and Players to Avoid

A look at wide receiver tiers for 2020 fantasy drafts with values and overpriced players, along with extra bang for your buck scoring system plays and schedule notes

2019 brought big changes at wide receiver. Outside of Michael Thomas and maybe Chris Godwin, there weren’t any true difference makers at the position. Many people won championships with lineups that featured wide receivers who weren’t expected to be contributors in fantasy leagues. The list of relevant wide receivers was longer than ever. This should be affecting your draft strategy as even the late rounds are rife with quality receivers in decent situations. What does the 2020 wide receiver landscape look like?


Michael Thomas, NO
Davante Adams, GB
Julio Jones, ATL

Thomas was ridiculous in 2019, and while his targets could be cut into by Emmanuel Sanders and better health from Alvin Kamara and Jared Cook, he might get even more efficient. Whether to take him or a running back is the decision you may face if you draw a pick in the 5-7 range. Adams produced despite missing time with a foot injury last year and could be the most targeted receiver in the league this year. You can set your clock by Jones production and he’s always a comforting pick in the late first in PPR leagues. My team builds don’t include first-round receivers often, but I won’t talk you out of them, especially if you love a few backs in the 4th-6th round range.

Priced Correctly: Thomas, Adams, Jones
