Must Have Wide Receivers

The top three wide receivers off the draft board will more than likely be Tyreek Hill, Stefon Diggs, and Davante Adams. I start drafting wide receivers in the 4th round, and those guys are already gone by then. I like target monsters like Keenan Allen, Allen Hurns, and Terry McLaurin. If I’m lucky, one of these guys will be available by the time it’s my turn to pick. Last year I took Courtland Sutton as my first wide receiver of the Denver Broncos, and he gets hurt after one game. With my 5th pick, I had to choose between Adam Thielen and Cooper Kupp. I had Thielen before, and I wanted him again because I had him two years prior, when he had one thousand yards and 9 touchdowns.  I chose wisely, and he rewarded me with 925 receiving yards and 14 TDs.

Thielen will be on my list of must-have receivers. Some other guys I’m looking at are Diontae Johnson of the Steelers. He had 144 targets last year but only 88 receptions. Big Ben Roethlisberger is back, and they drafted running back Najee Harris. That offense should be clicking. I think he and Chase Claypool are going to have outstanding numbers.

I’ll redraft Courtland Sutton if he’s available. He’s been the number option before. And if the Broncos make that rumored trade for future Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers, he shoots up in the fantasy football draft rankings.

DJ Chark of the Jacksonville Jaguars. He’s supposed to be the number one wide receiver this year. He gets more targets over Laviska Shenault. Trevor Lawrence has to throw to somebody, and it’s not going to be Tebow.

Ja’Marr Chase of the Cincinnati Bengals. He gets reunited with his old LSU quarterback Joe Burrow. A.J. Green is now in Arizona, so somebody needs to get those 104 targets.

And finally, Michael Pittman Jr., I like this kid. He told Carson Wentz to go kick rocks. You’re not getting my number 11 jersey. Indy has a good O-line, good running backs, and this offense should be hitting on all cylinders with Carson Wentz at quarterback. I think Pittman and T.Y. Hilton will both have good years.
