Wide receivers can be the hardest position to project. So many ups and downs come throughout the season because of the varying volume of targets they receive. I’m a big “draft you a STUD wide receiver early” kind of guy. I like to have that balance early in season. Receivers like Corey Davis, Trent Taylor, and Andy Isabella carried their teams to successful seasons. With that, here are my top 20 wide receivers heading into the season.
20. Warren Jackson, Colorado State
Jackson had a pedestrian season with only 32 catches for 405 yards and four touchdowns. He is in my top 20 for a few reasons. He’s a huge wideout at 6’6” 220 pounds and because of his size should be a red-zone target. Colorado State has pumped out fantasy gold for years, including the likes of Preston Williams, Michael Gallup (two seasons), and Rashard Higgins (two seasons). Of the last five years, the worst year was 1,061 yards and the best was 1,750. I’ll take a 6’6” wideout with that kind of upside any day of the week.
