Week 1 Fantasy WR Rankings

(1) Antonio Brown (PIT) @ Washington

Antonio Brown, who was more than likely selected first overall in your fantasy draft this year, lands at the No. 1 slot in the Week One wide receiver rankings. With Martavis Bryant and Le’Veon Bell suspended, Brown is the focal point of the Steelers offensive attack and will have multiple opportunities to exploit Washington’s secondary with Ben Roethlisberger under-center.

(2) Odell Beckham Jr. (NYG) @ Dallas

The No. 2 and No. 3 spots on the list can be flip-flopped due to your preference, but Odell Beckham Jr. nabs the No. 2 spot for me as Julio Jones is dealing with an ankle injury. Beckham Jr. is a freak of nature and this NFC East battle between the Giants and Cowboys could be very high scoring. Expect OBJ to put up big numbers for your team in Week One.

(3) Julio Jones (ATL) v. Tampa Bay

Even though he’s listed as questionable, I expect Jones to suit up in the Falcons’ first game this weekend against the Buccaneers. Jones is far and behold the number one receiving option in the Falcons offense, and will only be challenged for touches by dual-threat running back Devonta Freeman. Jones should be started with confidence this week and each week to follow (as long as he is healthy.
