Home / Podcast / FANTASY FOOTBALL FEEDING FRENZY: 2017 Wide Receiver Preview



The beginning of the 2017 NFL regular season is drawing closer by the day. On Thursday, the second full week of the preseason will be underway. And fantasy football draft season is kicking into high gear.

As fantasy enthusiasts far and wide get ready to pick their teams for the upcoming campaign, it’s time for the guys at the Fantasy Football Feeding Frenzy to continue their position-by-position look at the season to come.

Next up, it’s the wide receivers – a position that’s grown in importance in recent years. In fact, it’s the wideouts who some fantasy pundits consider the most important position in the game.

Much like with the running backs (before last week, anyway), there’s a “Big 3” among receivers, with Pittsburgh’s Antonio Brown, New York Giants’ Odell Beckham and Atlanta’s Julio Jones all vying for top honors. Who’s the king of the hill – and do any of these players merit consideration at No. 1 overall?

Of course, there’s more to the receivers than just the high-end studs. Who are the undervalued pass-catchers savvy fantasy owners should look to add on draft day? Who are the overvalued receivers to avoid? Are there any “sleeper” types who could rise from obscurity to lead fantasy owners to the promised land? And what about this year’s rookie class?

The Fantasy Football Feeding Frenzy gang will break down everything you need to know about the wide receivers this year on Wednesday, April 16 at 7 p.m. Eastern. They’ll also break down all the latest fantasy news – including last week’s bombshell suspension.

Come on in – the water’s FINE!

LB Danny Trevathan CHI


Danny Trevathan tied for the team lead with seven total tackles in a less-than-great IDP matchup last week. This week's tilt with the New York Giants is much more favorable, and double-digit tackles are well within the realm of reason.

QB Josh Allen BUF


One week into the 2020 season, Josh Allen is fantasy’s top quarterback — he topped 300 passing yards and 50 rushing yards last week against the New York Jets with three total touchdowns. Miami had problems defending a mobile quarterback last week in Cam Newton, and had issues defending quarterbacks at all in 2019.
