Top 200 Dynasty WR Pre-Free Agency

A look at the top 200 wide receivers for dynasty leagues of all sizes

I've been in some deep dynasty leagues, but I suppose none deep enough to merit a 200 deep wide receiver list. Still, with rosters opening up to 90, lots of names are getting second (or third or fourth or fifth) chances, free agency could bring surprise opportunities on both sides of moves, and players will change their standing with teams over the next six months. Let's take this to 200 and see where we end up.


1. Odell Beckham Jr Jr, NYG - Already elite and best football likely ahead of him
2. Mike Evans, TB - Put everything together in 2016, although targets dropped off in 2nd half
3. Antonio Brown, PIT - “down” year in 2016 still elite, but some fear he’s past peak
4. Julio Jones, ATL - Leg/foot issues mounting, but still highly productive per target in 2016
5. AJ Green, CIN - On way to destroying career highs in yards and catches in 2016 before injury


6. Amari Cooper, OAK - Has had his moments, only 22, but 2nd half fades holding him back


7. TY Hilton, IND - Gets dinged & lacks red zone game, but situated with top QB in prime
8. Dez Bryant, DAL - Low volume pass offense keeps him from elite


9. Keenan Allen, LAC - Elite producer in 2015, has played one game in last 24
10. Sammy Watkins, BUF - Elite talent there if he can ever stay healthy
11. Allen Robinson, JAX - Will QB situation get better soon? I don’t know
12. DeAndre Hopkins, HOU - Will QB situation get better soon? I don’t know


13. Michael Thomas, NO - Only real question is what happens after Brees (2-3 years?)


14. Brandin Cooks, NO - Similar outlook to Thomas, but was outproduced by him


15. Alshon Jeffery, CHI - QB/team uncertainty, injury/suspension risk, but proven talent at peak


16. Jarvis Landry, MIA - Fantasy value survived run-first offense and big target loss
17. Randall Cobb, GB - Looked like he was bouncing back mid-season, but injury derailed


18. Doug Baldwin, SEA - Retained value despite touchdown regression with added targets
19. Demaryius Thomas, DEN - Weathering QB storm while prime years tick away


20. Jordy Nelson, GB - A great offseason trade target for win now teams, turning 32


21. Davante Adams, GB - Much improved, but 2015 causes hesitation before totally buying in
22. Donte Moncrief, IND - Vertical element disappeared, banged up but room to grow with Luck
23. Kelvin Benjamin, CAR - Choppy 2016, but still projects as Newton’s long-term #1


24. Tyler Lockett, SEA - Feels like we only saw glimpse of his best before ugly leg break
25. Tyreek Hill, KC - Strong WR2 in second half, but track record of WR/RB tweeners spotty
26. Terrelle Pryor, CLE - Has the profile as a #1, needs a QB
27. Tyrell Williams, LAC - Has arrived and only 25, but Allen’s return could cut into numbers

28. Stefon Diggs, MIN - Red hot start, but nicked up and requiring volume for value

STANDING ON THE VERGE of getting it on

29. DeVante Parker, MIA - Big opportunity coming with Stills likely gone
30. Sterling Shepard, NYG - Building momentum as the Beckham sidekick
31. Corey Coleman, CLE - QB situation bleak for now, and Pryor likely sticking around
32. Josh Doctson, WAS - Long-term health and QB worries, but very high ceiling


33. Marvin Jones Jr, DET - Struggled with injuries after hot start, turning 27
34. Michael Crabtree, OAK - Will lose some value when Cooper truly arrives
35. Rishard Matthews, TEN - Came on last year, but TEN likely to reload at WR
36. Golden Tate, DET - Steady PPR force after weak opening month


37. Breshad Perriman, BAL - Durability/multi-dimensional game a question, role should grow
38. Kevin White, CHI - Durability a question and didn’t impress when on field
39. Jordan Matthews, PHI - Efficiency/production going in wrong direction, PHI will add WR
40. Laquon Treadwell, MIN - Going to take patience, first year very troubling
41. Martavis Bryant, PIT - Positive reports, reinstatement could be around the corner


42. Emmanuel Sanders, DEN - QB uncertainty and turning 30
43. John Brown, ARI - Great talent, but health questions loom after lost year
44. Julian Edelman, NE - Only came on after Gronkowski out and Bennett hurting


45. Willie Snead IV, NO - Destined to be third fiddle, albeit in great pass offense
