As the NFL becomes more and more focused on the passing game, fantasy football evolves in a similar direction.

According to average draft position data, three wide receivers are being selected among the first five overall picks, while six are going inside the first round in 12-team leagues.

This is a far cry from when it was considered risky to draft anything other than a running back in the first round, but the amount of superstar talent atop the wideouts is obvious.

The depth at the position is quite solid, too, as there are a number of potential late-round steals. Here’s a look at the Top 50:
