2020 Draft Tiers -- Non-PPR WRs
We've already addressed the value that is sliding down the board in your fantasy football league, with drafters increasingly focusing on RBs early. Now it's time to help make those in-draft decisions easier by showing where the separation lies at this position.
Julio Jones sits closer to Adams in our non-PPR projections than Thomas does to Hill. But Jones doesn't score TDs consistently enough to crack this top group for non-PPR purposes -- especially as he sits on the wrong side of 30.
Godwin finished last season 2nd across fantasy formats. Jones has finished 5 straight seasons among the top 6 even in non-PPR.
Odell Beckham Jr.
Hopkins drops at least 1 tier because his new home in Arizona doesn't promise the same target domination he enjoyed in Houston. The move at least introduces questions and might mean a downgrade in fantasy situation.
Woods should be in for positive TD regression after just 3 total scores in 2019.
Perhaps Smith-Schuster belongs a tier above this. But injuries to him and Ben Roethlisberger last season mean we still haven't seen Smith-Schuster as Pittsburgh's lead wideout. We've seen that from the players in the previous tier.
Otherwise, this group presents some young upstarts as well as a pair of Seahawks. Metcalf sits ahead of Lockett in non-PPR after leading the league in end-zone targets as a rookie, according to Pro Football Focus.
You could draw your 1st non-PPR WR from this tier, if you want.
There's upside in this tier, though be prepared to reach a little for Marquise Brown if you really want him. His ADP has climbed through a buzzy offseason and summer.
Kupp, Chark and A.J. Brown are more likely to go in your draft ahead of where they'll come up on the MVP Board. Familiarize yourself with the ADP if you covet any of those players.
Gallup, Fuller and Allen, on the other hand, have remained values all draft season.
A hamstring issue coming off his year-and-a-half lost to multiple lower-body injuries makes Green a decision unto himself.
This is a good range in which to find a late 2nd or upside 3rd wideout for your roster. We'll have to watch the health on Hilton and Landry as we move toward September.
Any of these 3 can help you as a 4th wideout, but each comes with a lower ceiling in non-PPR than on the PPR side.
Like A.J. Green, Samuel gets his own tier. We're awaiting Samuel's return from a May foot fracture, which obviously makes him a wild card.
Time to fill out your WR corps. There's upside to each of these players, and that's what you should be hunting for the rest of the way. Use the "ceiling" column on your MVP Board to help highlight those upside options.
