Let's take a look at the next batch of 2016 fantasy football wide receiver rankings by seeing who make it from 41-60.

41. Corey Coleman:  While we would go with Sterling Shepard as the rookie wideout who has the chance to put up the best fantasy football numbers in 2016, Coleman will have a starting spot all to his own from the jump.  Big-time athletic ability here but QB play could be an issue.
42. Laquan Treadwell:  Bad matchup for the deep-threat rookie Treadwell landing in passing conservative Minnesota.  Don't overdraft.
43. Steve Smith Sr.:  Back for one more go-round, Smith seems like the wideout version of Adrian Peterson in never getting old.
44. Markus Wheaton:  With Martavis Bryant suspended, the capable Wheaton moves into a prime spot as the number 2 wideout for the explosive Pittsburgh offense.
45. Tavon Austin:  The L.A. Rams lack weapons for rookie QB Jared Goff which gives Austin the best chance to contribute in PPR formats.
46. Kevin White:  Missed his entire rookie season with serious leg problems, White could bounce back in a big way with Jay Cutler.
47. Tyler Lockett:  The Seahawks are throwing it more than ever but Lockett takes a back seat to Doug Baldwin in the wideout hierarchy.  Use only in standard leagues.
48. Will Fuller:  Great speed but rookie has issues with drops.
49. Travis Benjamin:  Love the move to San Diego where the big-play Benjamin now has a very good QB in Philip Rivers to throw it to him down the field.
50. Mohamud Sanu:  Now with Atlanta, Sanu has a lot to do in order to show he is more than a borderline WR 3.
51. Kendall Wright:  Has seen his career stall after some big early PPR numbers.  Becoming a bit lost in the shuffle in a suddenly crowded Tennessee receiving corps.
52. Jeff Janis:  Improving kid is a great spot as a wideout for Aaron Rodgers.
53. Breshad Perriman:  A torn ACL took him out of 2015 completely but Perriman is back to challenge for the number 2 wideout spot on the Ravens.  With Baltimore now throwing it much, Perriman should be watched early on.
54. Michael Thomas:  Any receiver in a New Orleans Saints offense is worth looking into, especially a decent prospect in Thomas.
55. Chris Hogan:  Has some PPR upside with New England, especially if they cut Danny Amendola.
56. Nelson Agholor:  Didn't take off with the Eagles as a rookie which some thought he could but now Agholor is in a much stripped-down offense with Doug Pederson.
57. Kamar Aiken:  Did nice work down the stretch last season as an injury replacement but Aiken should be ignored unless more time opens up.
58. Terrance Williams:  Still an enigma, Williams combines big athletic ability with long stretches of vanishing from the offense. 
59. Michael Floyd:  The clear third-wheel in the Arizona attack, Floyd is still too all-or-nothing. 
60. Torrey Smith:   Going to San Francisco has ruined the previously useful Torrey Smith.
