- Sean Koerner ranks the top fantasy football wide receivers into tiers for best ball.

The week-to-week production can be quite volatile, but ultimately, it’s a very predictable position. That’s why it’s key to have seven or eight WRs. The extra depth is also good considering it’s the only position that requires three slots each week. Not to mention that if you end up strong at WR, it’ll be heavily used as your flex.
I typically snag WRs as they fall further down the draft than they should. Other positions see sharp drop-offs at certain points in my projections, but it’s more of a steady decline at WR. That’s why you’ll see much bigger tiers and more disagreement among expert rankings. These factors make it much easier when you follow my advice of letting the draft come to you and to dictate which WRs fall to your team.
