Fantasy Football Wide Receiver Depth Chart

on

Hello, Fantasy Football fans and players! Welcome to a Fantasy Six Pack feature we liked to call the Wide Receiver Depth Chart.

On our Wide Receiver Depth Chart, you can stay up-to-date on the latest NFL depth charts for each team’s wide receivers. We will continue to provide the latest information and highlight the biggest changes for fantasy purposes throughout training camp up to and including Week 17 of the NFL season.

Considering the extensive use of three even four wide receivers by each NFL team, we provided the names of each of those players along with other wide receivers to keep on your fantasy radar. Stay with us to find out who the next man up will be for wide receivers on each NFL team.

Now we are FINALLY getting to the regular season, which receivers won bigger roles? Who are the sleepers to draft? Who is the next man up on your WR1 if he goes down?

Find out those answers and a whole lot more in the Fantasy Football Wide Receiver Depth Chart.

Let us know where you agree with our analysis and where you disagree.

TeamWR1WR2WR3OtherNotes
Arizona CardinalsLarry FitzgeraldChad Williams JJ Nelson-Christian KirkFuture HOF Fitz is a PPR beast and a great WR2. Nothing else to see here.
Atlanta FalconsJulio JonesMohamed SanuCalvin Ridley- Justin Hardy
- Russell Gage
- Taj Williams
Julio is a PPR monster but why cant he score touchdowns? Ridley could surpass Sanu production-wise.
Baltimore RavensMichael CrabtreeJohn BrownWillie Snead - Chris Moore
-Janarian Grant
-Jordan Lasley
John Brown looks healthy and is producing, check your leagues if he is still available. Crabtree looks TD dependent, while Snead picks up the remaining targets.
Buffalo BillsKelvin BenjaminZay JonesAndre Holmes -Robert FosterThe only one to consider is Kelvin Benjamin. He might be worth a stash on your bench.
Carolina PanthersDevin FunchessTorrey Smith Jarius Wright-DJ Moore
- Curtis Samuel (inj.)
IF Cam was more accurate, maybe you could count on his receivers. Funchess is a WR3 while rookie Moore could shock some folks.
Chicago BearsAllen RobinsonTaylor GabrielAnthony Miller
- Kevin White
- Josh Bellamy
Robinson returns this season after being out for 2107. He should be the go-to guy for Mitchell Trubisky. Miller has shown this preseason to be a good slot guy already.
Cincinatti BengalsA.J. GreenTyler BoydJohn Ross- Josh Malone
-Cody Core
Green is still a WR1 but disappointed last season. John Ross has shown flashes on his splash ability.
Cleveland BrownsJarvis LandryAntonio CallawayRashard Higgins- Rod Streater
-Damion Ratley
Lots of changes in Cleveland. Gordon is now in New England, Mayfield is the new QB. Landry takes over as the WR1. He will get ton of targets and will be a PPR machine. The rookie Callaway is a boom or bust FLEX option while Higgins is now rosterable but viewed as a back end roster option.
Dallas CowboysAllen HurnsTerrance WilliamsCole Beasley- MIchael Gallup
- Tavon Austin
- Noah Brown
Someone needs to tell Hurns that the season started. Beasley has stepped up to be a PPR machine while Austin looks to be a boom or bust gadget play.
Denver BroncosDemaryius ThomasEmmanuel SandersCourtland Sutton- DaeSean Hamilton
- Tim Patrick
DT and Sanders should see their numbers increase with Keenum at the helm. If one of them gets hurt, pick up Sutton.
Detroit LionsGolden TateMarvin JonesKenny Golladay- T.J. Jones
- Bradley Marquez
This passing attack is fantasy gold. Jones and Tate are proven fantasy starters while Golladay looks to breakout this season.
Green Bay PackersDevante AdamsRandall CobbGeronimo Allison-Trevor Davis
-J'Mon Moore
-E. Brown
Adams looks to take over and be Rodgers' go-to guy. Not a bad place to be. Cobb hasn't produced since 2013. Watch for Allison to take his spot.
Houston TexansDeAndre HopkinsWill FullerBruce Ellington- Sammie Coates
- Keke Coutee
Watson is back so strike up Fuller in all of your lineups. Shouldnt have to say a word about Hopkins.
Indianapolis ColtsT.Y. HiltonRyan GrantChester Rogers-Zach Pascal
-Marcus Johnson
If Luck plays, Hilton is a top 15 WR, if not, he drops considerably. Sleeper alert: Ryan Grant.
Jacksonville JaguarsKeelan ColeDonte MoncriefDede Westbrook
-DJ Chark
- Rashad Greene
With Lee now out for the season, this WR corps will be filled up and coming receivers, neither of which are currently WR1. It would seem that Cole and Westbook would be the ones to take first but dont forget about Chark as a late-round flyer.
Kansas City ChiefsTyreek HillSammy WatkinsChris Conley- DeMarcus Robinson
- De'Anthony Thomas
-Marcus Kemp
Mahomes has been a fantasy monster in the first two games. Need to own any part of this offense you can while they are hot.
Los Angeles ChargersKeenan AllenTyrell Williams Travis Benjamin- Mike Williams
- Geremy Davis
The underrated Rivers has plenty of weapons to choose from. Let's see if Mike Williams can rise up.
Los Angeles RamsBrandin Cooks Cooper KuppRobert Woods- Josh Reynolds
- Pharoh Cooper
- Mike Thomas
The Rams had the best offense last season and added a better weapon in Cooks. I think it hurts Woods but helps Kupp blossom. It looks like Cooks will play extensively out of the slot.
Miami DolphinsKenny StillsDeVante ParkerDanny Amendola- Albert Wilson
- Jakeem Grant
Stills is criminally undervalued especially with Tannehill back. Will Parker finally break out? Im not paying to find out.
Minnesota VikingsStefon DiggsAdam ThielenLaquon Treadwell-Brandon Zylstra
-Stacey Coley
Cousins looks to have eyes for both of his receivers, and they are building upon last season's stellar seasons. Diggs looks to be the go-to guy. Treadwell is starting to show promise finally.
New England PatriotsJulian Edelman (SUSP)Chris HoganJosh Gordon -Cordarrelle Patterson
-Philip Dorsett
-Corey Coleman

The Patriots acquired Josh Gordon from the Browns to provide a much-needed deep threat to their offense. With Edelman coming back in a few weeks, this group will look a whole lot different shortly and Brady will have a ton of weapons to work with.
New Orleans SaintsMichael Thomas Ted GinnCameron Merideth-Tre"Quan Smith
- Brandon Coleman
- Tommylee Lewis
- Austin Carr
Brees threw the ball less last season in his career. With Ingram gone for four games, do they let Brees throw more? Either way, Thomas is a WR1, get him early. Merideth is finally looking healthy. Rookie Tre'Quan Smith has proven to be a playmaker and a great late round flyer.
New York GiantsOdell Beckham Jr.Sterling ShepardCody Latimer- Russell Shepard.
- Kaelin Clay
The offense has not lived up to expectations due to poor offensive line and the erratic Manning. Only player you might be able to trust now is Beckham.
Oakland RaidersAmari CooperJordy NelsonSeth Roberts -Martavis Bryant
- Dwayne Harris
What will Gruden's offense look like? Will he make Cooper a star? Will Derek Carr be healthy and play better? Potential is there but be leery. Jordy is looking better than Bryant in camp so far.
Philadelphia EaglesAshlon Jefferey (inj.)Nelson AgholorBraxton Miller- Mack Hollins
- Kamar Aiken
Wentz comes back in Week 3, but who is he going to throw it to? Jefferey is still out. Wallace is out for the season. Agholor is WR1 and they had to bring in Braxton Miller. Messy situation, but look for Agholor to be the go-to guy along with TE Ertz.
New York JetsRobby AndersonQuincy EnunwaJermaine Kearse- Terrelle Pryor
- Andre Roberts
Rookie QB Darnold hardly looks deep leaving Anderson a non-factor. Enunwa has been the stud of the offense, especially in PPR formats. Kearse returned this week and will provide another target and Pryor is showing that he can still produce. Not a bad group of receivers, can Darnold take advantage?
Pittsburgh SteelersAntonio BrownJu-Ju Smith-SchusterJames Washington-Ryan Switzer
- Darrius Heyward-Bey
- Justin Hunter
AB is AB! Enough said! Schuster will be No.2 option, can he handle it? Switzer was brought in here via trade to be the slot guy, possible deep sleeper option in deeper PPR leagues. The rookie Washington got hurt but should be ready to go Week 1. In this offense with Big Ben, get one of them on your roster.
San Francisco 49ersPierre GarconMarquise Goodwin (inj.)Trent Taylor- Dante PettisGoodwin will be back soon from his injury. Garcon is getting looks and WR3/FLEX in PPR formats. Pettis has been boom or bust.
Seattle SeahawksDoug Baldwin (inj.)Tyler LockettBrandon Marshall-Jaron Brown
-David Moore
Baldwin looks to be out for 2-4 weeks. Lockett has big-play potential while Marshall should be picked up in all formats and started in deeper leagues.
Tampa Bay BuccaneersMike EvansDeSean JacksonAdam Humphries- Chris Godwin
- Justin Watson
Fitzmagic strikes again! What a performance. Maybe Winston doesn't get his job back? Evans looked unstoppable in Week 1, and Jackson exploded but then was concussed. Look for Godwin to breakout and wish you drafted him.
Tennessee TitansCorey Davis Rishard MatthewsTaywan Taylor- Tajae Sharpe
- Darius Jennings
Does Corey Davis break out? Everyone seems to think so? I need to see it to believe it. Matthews being injured has opened the door for Taylor, but unless we hear Matthews being ruled out for real games he stays WR2.
Washington RedskinsJamison CrowderPaul RichardsonJosh Doctson - Maurice Harris
-Cam Sims
Where is Crowder? Not looking like a WR1. None of the other receivers have stepped yet.
