WIDE RECEIVERS

1.  Antonio Brown:  Other then maybe Odell Beckham Jr., there is Pittsburgh Steelers wideout Antonio Brown and everyone else.  Extending his streak to three straight seasons with 100-plus receptions, Brown hauled in a ridiculous career-high 136 balls for 1,834 yards and 10 TD.  All of this despite Ben Roethlisberger missing handful of games with injury and having to deal with the challenge of catching passes from Michael Vick and Landry Jones.  The fact of the matter is that there is not a more dominant PPR receiver in all of fantasy football and Brown’s video-game numbers make him well worth the number 1 overall pick in those leagues.  Even in standard formats, Brown’s double-digit scores and massive yardage make him a locked-in first round selection.  If Roethlisberger stays healthy this season, the numbers could be insane. 

2016 PROJECTION:  127 receptions 1,723 yards 11 TD

2.  Odell Beckham Jr.:  While Antonio Brown holds down the top receiving spot at least for another season in these pages, one can make the argument that the New York Giants’ Odell Beckham Jr. is deserving of such consideration.  After all through his first two NFL seasons, Beckham Jr. has lit up opposing secondaries with some of the most jaw-dropping catches ever.  The numbers are staggering here as Beckham has caught 90-plus passes, gone over 1,300 yards, and scored a total of 25 touchdown his first two years in the league.  Of course Beckham Jr. has to own it when it comes to costing his fantasy football owners in as bad a way as possible in getting suspended for the Week 16 championship game due to receiving three personal fouls in a massive confrontation with former Carolina Panthers and current Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman.  That bout of immaturity aside, Beckham Jr. should be the no doubt number 2 wideout off the board around the midway point of Round 1.  As long as Beckham Jr. can ward off his old hamstring troubles and keep his mind right, ace numbers will commence.

2016 PROJECTION:  98 receptions 1,415 yards 14 TD

3.  Julio Jones:  While Antonio Brown and Odell Beckham Jr. get most of the headlines, Atlanta Falcons star wideout Julio Jones went about his business in 2015 by catching an extreme 136 passes for 1,871 yards and 8 touchdowns on a bad Atlanta Falcons team.  Having now missed only one game over the last two years, Jones is also starting to quiet the injury prone label that dogged his first few years in the league.  Firmly planted in his prime and remaining the number 1 target for QB Matt Ryan, Jones is the best PPR receiver out there outside of Brown.  The one nitpicking knock you can have on Jones is that he has only reached double-digits in receiving touchdowns once in his career but other than that there is no reason he should not be going off the board at the end of Round 1.

2016 PROJECTION:  125 receptions 1,652 yards 10 TD
