The times have changed in fantasy football. For many years, the first round was all about the RB position. That, however, is not the case in 2016. In fact, the top five in most leagues has been all about superstar wide receivers.
There’s Antonio Brown of the Pittsburgh Steelers, the consensus pick as this year’s No. 1 overall selection. Odell Beckham of the New York Giants, who’s done nothing in his short career BUT pile up fantasy points. And Jones of the Atlanta Falcons, who spent much of last year flirting with re-writing the single-season record books at the position.
As the gang at The Fantasy Football Feeding Frenzy continues their position-by-position breakdown of the 2016 fantasy campaign, this week is all about the new kings of the mountain. And the first order of business is simple — if you have the No. 1 pick, who’s the guy to take?
That may be the first question the guys answer this week, but it’ll be far from the last. Who are the value plays at wide receiver for the “old school” types who hit RB early? Conversely, which wide receivers are dangerously overvalued and set to let fantasy owners down? Can this year’s rookie class come close to duplicating the Year 1 impact made by rookie receivers like Beckham and Amari Cooper the past couple of years?
The Sleepers. The busts. The breakout stars and players set to fall flat. Fantasy Sharks staff writers Gary Davenport, Todd Latzke and Walton Spurlin have that information and more, with an hour-long breakdown of the wideout spot.
Join the fellas Thursday, July 21 at 7 PM ET as they give you all the info you need to cull a cadre of pass-catchers who will make you proud this fall.
Come on in — the water’s FINE!
