Hello, Fantasy Football degenerates! Welcome to a Fantasy Six Pack feature we have cleverly nicknamed the “Wide Receiver Depth Chart”.

Stay up-to-date on the latest NFL depth charts for each team’s wide receivers by checking in on our Wide Receiver Depth Chart table. We’ll do the homework for you. Whether you play standard scoring or PPR, in a weekly league or DFS, the Six Pack crew has you covered. We will continue to provide you with the latest information and highlight the biggest changes for fantasy purposes throughout training camp up to and including Week 17 of the NFL season.

Fantasy Football formats, settings and scoring systems continue to evolve. The NFL passing game is more prevalent than ever, both in the NFL and in Fantasy Football. Depth chart knowledge has replaced the traditional “Sleeper” column you’re accustomed to so stay with us to find out who the next man up will be for wide receivers on each NFL team.

Wide Receiver Depth Chart Levels of Badassery

John Wick: The Assasins

Wide Receivers listed under John Wick are numero uno and your focus needs to be on them. If you’re unaware of these dudes, they’ll kill you in Fantasy. Frankly, if you’re not aware of these guys, you’re already dead.

Neo: Could Be The Man, But Needs A Push

On the surface, it seems like guys in this category could be, “The One” but perhaps they simply don’t know it yet. Let us be your Oracle and guide you.

Johnny Utah: The Undercover Studs

These guys were at one time rising stars in college but now find themselves in new roles, trying to find their true identity.

Shane Falco: The Replacements

The has-beens, the forgotten, the talented but never had the opportunity group.

TeamJohn WickNeoJohnny UtahShane FalcoNotes
Arizona CardinalsChristian KirkLarry FitzgeraldKeeSean Johnson- Andy Isabella
- Pharoh Cooper
- Damiere Byrd
Kirk is startable any given week with Fitz being a flex option.
Atlanta FalconsJulio JonesCalvin RidleyRussell GageJustin Hardy
Jones is banged up but looks like he'll suit up. Ridley has really emerged as a legit threat and can be a WR2 each week too. Gage is a good flex option if you need it.
Baltimore RavensMarquise BrownWillie Snead
Miles Boykin Seth RobertsBrown is the only WR I would even consider starting, however, even he has consistency issues.
Buffalo BillsJohn BrownCole BeasleyIsaiah McKenzie- Duke Williams
- Robert Foster
- Andre Roberts
Josh Allen to John Brown looks to be the solid connection we all hoped for. Brown is a high upside WR 3 play in fantasy and DFS tournaments. Beasley continues to be a flex option/WR3 in PPR leagues.
Carolina PanthersD.J. MooreCurtis SamuelJarius WrightDonte Moncrief

D.J. Moore is on his way to being a top 15-20 WR in redraft. Samuel has been inconsistent but is a flex play in deep leagues.
Chicago BearsAllen RobinsonAnthony MillerTaylor Gabriel- Cordarrelle Patterson
- Javon Wims
The offense, starting with Trubisky, is playing much better. Robinson and even Anthony Miller are reaping the benefits.
Cincinatti BengalsTyler Boyd- John RossAuden Tate- Alex Erickson
- Stanley Morgan
- AJ Green (INJ)
Back to Andy Dalton. It doesn't really matter Boyd is the only WR you want to use here. I'm guessing AJ Green has played his last down as a Bengal.
Cleveland BrownsOdell Beckham Jr.Jarvis LandryRashard HigginsTaywan Taylor

Browns seem to be turning things around a little with Landry slightly outperforming OBJ lately. You're starting both though and that is it.
Dallas CowboysAmari CooperMichael GallupRandall CobbTavon Austin

Cooper is a stud when healthy but has been nicked up as of late. Gallup is a high upside WR 3 and a great buy in dynasty.
Denver BroncosCourtland SuttonDaeSean HamiltonTim PatrickDrew Lock has taken over at QB. In his first game he proved he can still move the ball downfield and trust Sutton to make plays.
Detroit LionsKenny GolladayMarvin JonesDanny AmendolaMarvin HallDavid Blough is going to be the starting QB for the rest of the season. Golladay and Jones had nice games in his first start, but this no doubt is just another knock to their value.
Green Bay PackersDavante AdamsMarquez Valdes-ScantlingAllen Lazard- Geronimo Allison
- Jake Kumerow
Davante Adams is the only receiver you can trust in this offense.
Houston TexansDeAndre HopkinsWill FullerKenny Stills- Keke CouteeHopkins is an obvious stud, after that, you can start Fuller as a boom/bust WR3. I would avoid everybody else.
Indianapolis ColtsZach PascalChester RogersDeon Cain- T.Y. Hilton (INJ)
- Parris Campbell (INJ)
- Devin Funchess (INJ)
Jacoby Brissett targets TE's, Hilton and Pascal. The rest are avoids in PPR and Standard formats. Pascal is a very good option to use with Hilton out too.
Jacksonville JaguarsD.J. CharkDede WestbrookChris Conley- Keelan Cole
Back to Minshew we go so perhaps DJ Chark goes back to being a fringe WR1 each week. Westbrook has played well lately but will be hard to trust with Minshew under center.
Kansas City ChiefsTyreek HillSammy WatkinsMecole Hardman- Demarcus Robinson
- Byron Pringle
Hill is a WR1, after him, it's anybody's guess. Watkins is just not consistent enough to trust each week.
Los Angeles ChargersKeenan AllenMike WilliamsAndre Patton- Geremy DavisMike Williams has more catches than last season already, but 0 TD. Last season he 10 touchdowns. If he could get into the endzone with any consistency he would be an easy WR2.
Los Angeles RamsCooper KuppRobert WoodsBrandin CooksJosh ReynoldsKupp has slowed down a bit since his early-season explosion. Woods has looked good lately, but still can't get into the endzone, Cooks is a boom/bust type of player who I honestly don't want to use if I can help it.
Miami DolphinsDevante ParkerAlbert WilsonAllen HunsIsaiah Ford

People have been predicting a Davante Parker breakout since the 1980's. It might actually be happening this time.
Minnesota VikingsStefon DiggsBisi Johnson Laquon TreadwellAdam Thielen (INJ)

Theilen is still not healthy so Diggs is benefitting from a large target share.
New England PatriotsJulian EdelmanMohamed SanuPhillip Dorsett- N'Keal Harry
- Jakobi Meyers


This WR corps has quickly gone back to Edelman and friends. Good luck trusting anybody outside of him.
New Orleans SaintsMichael Thomas Ted GinnTre'Quan SmithDeonte HarrisMichael Thomas is having a season for the ages. He is arguably the best receiver in football right now. Besides him, you can't really use anyone else.
New York GiantsSterling Shepard Darius SlaytonGolden TateCody Latimer


Shepard is back and now there are three capable WR on this team. Each one sits in that WR3/Flex range at best any given week as this offense lack explosiveness.
New York JetsRobby AndersonJamison CrowderDemaryius ThomasVyncint Smith
Crowder is the one receiver you can trust the most, but even that is hard to do over a lot of guys. Robby Anderson is boom/bust each week.
Oakland RaidersTyrell WilliamsZay JonesKeelan DossHunter Renfrow (INJ)Tyrell the Gazelle has gone from must play TD machine to hope and pray for a TD. Hunter Renfrow is a nice play if healthy but not sure if he will be the rest of the season.
Philadelphia EaglesAlshon JeffreyNelson AgholorJ.J. Arcega-Whiteside- DeSean Jackson (INJ)
DJax is out for the season. Jeffrey has failed to be a consistent difference-maker and nobody else is stepping up either. Bad news all-around.
Pittsburgh SteelersJames WashingtonDionte JohnsonJohnny Holton- Juju Smith-Schuster (INJ)
- Ryan Switzer
Steelers have changed to third-string QB Duck Hodges and shockingly it might be a better option than Rudolph. Unfortunately, JuJu is still injured so we have to rely on James Washington only.
San Francisco 49ersEmmanuel SandersDeebo SamuelDante Pettis- Kendrick BourneSanders is the WR1 but still more of a WR3. Deebo is emerging as a WR3/Flex option. Both are not super trustworthy in this low volume passing game.
Seattle SeahawksTyler LockettD.K. MetcalfJosh Gordon- David Moore
- Jaron Brown
Pop it and Lockett. Lockett and Metcalf are making owners forget about the absence of Doug Baldwin. Josh Gordon is just a piece and not startable in Fantasy.
Tampa Bay BuccaneersMike EvansChris GodwinBreshad PerrimanMike Evans is the 1A and Godwin is the 1B. This may be the best WR duo in the NFL. Just have to ride the good with the bad from Winston.
Tennessee TitansA.J. BrownCorey DavisAdam HumphriesTajae SharpeTannehill has proven AJB and Davis were slowed by Mariota. AJB has emerged as the number one.
Washington RedskinsTerry McLaurinKelvin HarmonTrey Quinn- Paul Richardson
- Steven Sims
Scary Terry McLaurin is the real deal. However, with Haskins at the helm, McLaurin is merely a shot in the dark flex play or DFS tournament option.
