Football season is just around the corner and that means Fantasy Football Drafts are happening now.
We’ve compiled a list of the top 10 NFL wide receivers for the upcoming season based on an average of rankings from the top Fantasy Football writers in the business.
Here’s what you need to know about the wide receivers:
1. Calvin Johnson
2013 Regular Season:
AVG (yds per catch)- 14.0
REC (receptions)- 31
AVG (yds per catch)- 13.0
REC (receptions)- 136
Cobb is a clutch WR for Aaron Rodgers and luckily for fantasy owners, he is Rodger’s go-to slot guy allowing him to put up three two-figure numbers in his first four games for the fantasy league.
He was on a roll until he broke his leg in the 6th week, putting him on the sideline until the 17th week. This leaves a lot of guessing as to his performance next season, but if he is able to stay off of the IR, he could be deadly. He was ranked 9th in the league among WRs with 11.8 points per game. The question is how much time will he be spending on the field.
According to FOX Sports‘ Paul Imig:
Cobb is No. 6 on this list because there’s no reason to believe that 2014 won’t be the year that he does elevate up to “star” status. There are fewer trusted options for quarterback Aaron Rodgers to throw to than there have been in recent years, and Cobb will benefit from that.
