Sean Koerner — the No. 1 fantasy football draft ranker of 2019 — breaks down the final edition of his 2021 WR Draft Tiers. This series is part of our Action PRO subscription, which will not only grant you access to these Tiers, but also to Koerner's real-time rankings in our 2021 Fantasy Draft Kit.
Running back is the most important position in fantasy football, but wide receiver is a close second.
With the depth at the position, it’s easy to convince yourself that if you miss out on certain WRs, there will be more talent to choose from later — but you can't neglect the position so much over the first six rounds that you end up with Deebo Samuel as your WR2.
You need to spend significant draft capital to lock in your WRs. That's why I've outlined the final version of my 2021 WR Draft Tiers below, so you can strategize exactly how to do that.
These tiers are based on my rankings as of Sept. 3, but reminder to check our 2021 Draft Kit for real-time rankings between now and the end of the season.
