The TOP 10 Most Fantasy Football Points Ever By A Wide Receiver
By Eddie Sebastian
Last year at my fantasy football draft party, I had to pick a wide receiver in the fourth round. So, it came down to Robert Woods, who I had the previous year, or his teammate Cooper Kupp. Woods is a target monster, and I don’t like change, so I took him, and the eventual league champ took Kupp four picks later. If I pick Kupp, I run away with the League Championship. Woulda, coulda, shoulda, but I didn’t. In the off-season, the Rams made a blockbuster trade with the Lions for quarterback Matthew Stafford, and as soon as he arrives at training camp, Stafford and Kupp become instant bros. He hooked up his bro with 191 targets, 145 receptions, 1,947 receiving yards, and 16 touchdowns. That comes out to 290.7 fantasy points in a standard scoring system. So, where does Kupp rank among the best wide receivers?
Cooper Kupp lands at number 1 and Deebo Samuels at number 6 on our list, but you have to put an asterisk next to their names as they played in the first-ever NFL 17 game schedule in 2021.
Jerry Rice made the list three times. Randy Moss made it twice, but with two different teams, we have the 49ers represented four times, the Rams twice, and the Lions twice. Rice, Moss, Johnson, and Bruce are members of the Football Hall of Fame.
Standard scoring, or as the Millennials call it, NON-PPR, is 1 point for every 10 yards receiving or rushing, 6 points for every touchdown scored, and 2 points if you score on a 2 point conversion. This scoring system applies to running backs, tight ends, and wide receivers.
