Take reception scoring out of the equation, and the rest of the WRs get a little closer to reception king Antonio Brown. As you'll see below, though, they still don't quite catch him.
DeAndre Hopkins sits a TD's worth of points behind Brown in our non-PPR projections, with another 7 points separating Hopkins from #3 Julio Jones.
Tier separation doesn't necessarily come down to the specific point gaps, though, as we must consider situation, history and other factors in assessing the fantasy assets we're sorting through.
Use these WR groupings to help you determine when it's time to pounce at the position and when you can afford to wait another round.
Brown lost time to injury in 2017 for the 1st time in 5 years. And he still wound up 2nd among wideouts in total points across fantasy formats and 1st in the league in receiving yards.
Odell Beckham Jr.
All 3 of these guys dominate their offenses in target share and serve as the clear leading end-zone target.
