2018 Draft Tiers -- PPR WRs (Updated)

By Matt Schauf 2:08pm EDT 8/29/18


DeAndre Hopkins seemed to join Antonio Brown atop some WR rankings sets after his big 2017, but he didn't quite join the tier of fantasy's top wideout. You have to move down to the gap in PPR projection between #10 Mike Evans and #11 Amari Cooper to find a spread as large as the separation between Brown and Hopkins.

Perhaps more interesting is where we split the 2nd-round WRs and the large shelves of options that extend back from Round 6. (Find the non-PPR tiers here.)

Antonio Brown

We're way past needing to make a case for this guy. You'd need to make a case against him standing alone atop the WR ranks, and we have yet to hear that case.

DeAndre Hopkins
Julio Jones
Odell Beckham Jr.
Michael Thomas
Keenan Allen

This level comprises proven target dominators with big TD potential. (Yep, even Julio.)

Davante Adams
A.J. Green
Adam Thielen
Mike Evans
