Preseason Wide Receiver Rankings

Seeing A.J. Green in the teens in a lot of 'expert' rankings is unacceptable... Green is a top five talent in the prime of his career, with a veteran quarterback and proven offensive coordinator. Get him back in your top 10.

It’s hard to imagine a wide receiver having a better season than Antonio Brown had last season. He was virtually uncoverable, with a great 71+% catch rate on an insane 11.3 targets per game. That being said, with the upcoming Martavis Bryant, a more-seasoned Markus Wheaton, along with Bell and Miller, there is a chance his target dip this year back under 10/game.

If Brown’s numbers do drop off slightly, there are several talented receivers nipping at his heels for that top spot. You really can’t go wrong with Megatron, Jordy, Dez, Julio, Demaryius, Odell, A.J., Cobb, or Jeffery. I wouldn’t be surprised to see these 10 receivers finish in any order.

Players that I like a little more than most experts include Keenan Allen, who I expect to have a nice bounce back season. Martavis Bryant, who I think will play more snaps and receive more targets this season. I also have Nelson Agholor rated higher than the expert consensus. While it may take him a while to acclimate, I just think he’s the perfect fit for the Jeremy Maclin role. Another rookie who I think is a perfect fit for the system he finds himself in is Breshard Perriman. Look for a ton of targets, receptions and big plays out of the polished rookie.
