The 2020 NFL Draft is over, giving us a clearer picture of rosters for the 2020 season. With that fantasy football rankings can be released. Here are the 2020 fantasy football wide receiver rankings. (Note: These are best used for standard-scoring leagues and will be updated until the season starts)
1. Michael Thomas, New Orleans Saints
Thomas was the number one fantasy receiver last season and the Saints have added Emmanuel Sanders, which should take some attention off of him. There is no reason to think that Thomas won’t produce again int 2020.
2. Davante Adams, Green Bay Packers
Although he ranked 29th in fantasy last year, he was injured and looks to be healthy heading into 2020. If he had played a full 16 game season, he would’ve ranked in the top 10. The Packers didn’t draft any receiver help in the draft, so Aaron Rodgers will be relying on Adams a lot this season.
3. Tyreek Hill, Kansas City Chiefs
Hill is one of the most explosive players in the NFL and ranked 28th last season, despite only playing in 12 games. If he stays healthy this season, Hill will catapult back into the top-tier level of receivers.
4. DeAndre Hopkins, Arizona Cardinals
Last year, Hopkins ranked ninth for fantasy receivers and that was with a coach that didn’t see eye to eye with him. Arizona will spread things out and Hopkins should be one of the more productive receivers in the league.
5. Julio Jones, Atlanta Falcons
Jones is always one of the most talented receivers in the league, but doesn’t always finish first in fantasy points. He was fifth last season and should finish in the same range this season.
6. Kenny Golladay, Detroit Lions
Surprisingly, Golladay finished third for fantasy receivers last year and that was with Matthew Stafford only playing half of the season. With Stafford back, Golladay is in store for another huge year.
7. Mike Evans, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Buccaneers signed Tom Brady, which will help out their two-star receivers. While Chris Godwin was more productive last season, Evans is the more talented receiver and should be ready to improve on his eighth overall ranking from last season.
8. Chris Godwin, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Godwin had a fantastic season in 2019, as he ranked second as a fantasy receiver in just 14 games. He will see some natural regression and Brady will likely spread the ball more around to all of the Bucs’ top targets.
9. Odell Beckham Jr., Cleveland Browns
Last season was not great for OBJ, but now the Browns have a better coach and better blocking. Baker Mayfield‘s play will improve and so too will Beckham’s.
10. Amari Cooper, Dallas Cowboys
The Cowboys have more weapons now with the addition of CeeDee Lamb, but Cooper is still their best receiver. He ranked seventh as a fantasy receiver last year and the Cowboys look ready to air it out a lot more than last year.
11. Courtland Sutton, Denver Broncos
Sutton ranked 17th in fantasy scoring last season and could improve this year now that Emmanuel Sanders is in New Orleans. The Broncos have more weapons now, but Sutton is the best receiver on the roster.
12. JuJu Smith-Schuster, Pittsburgh Steelers
Last season wasn’t great for the Steelers or Smith-Schuster, who ranked 66th in 12 games. With Ben Roethlisberger back under center, Smith-Schuster will likely return to form.
13. A.J. Brown, Tennessee Titans
In his rookie season, Brown played great. He finished 10th in fantasy scoring and now that Ryan Tannehill is returning, Brown should be able to improve with a year of experience under his belt.
14. Keenan Allen, Los Angeles Chargers
Allen is one of the most talented receivers in the league and ranked 11th last season. With a different quarterback in place, Allen may drop a spot or two before he gets in a groove.
15. Allen Robinson, Chicago Bears
Despite the Bears’ offensive struggles last year, Robinson still ranked 12th for fantasy receivers. If he can do well with how bad things were last season, he should be able to do about the same in 2020.
16. Adam Thielen, Minnesota Vikings
The Vikings focused on running the ball more and Thielen played in only 10 games, so he took a major step back in productivity. With Stefon Diggs traded to the Buffalo Bills, Thielen is the top target and should be able to play well once again.
17. DeVante Parker, Miami Dolphins
Parker is always an enigma in fantasy, but last season he ranked sixth for fantasy receivers. He may not have the consistency to be ranked that high this season, but Parker should be looked at as a WR2.
18. Jarvis Landry, Cleveland Browns
Last season, Baker Mayfield locked onto Landry a lot and he ranked 14th for receivers. For the Browns’ offense to succeed this year, Mayfield needs to get the ball to Beckham Jr. and Austin Hooper, which should move Landry slightly down the rankings.
19. Cooper Kupp, Los Angeles Rams
Kupp was the fourth-ranked receiver last year, but things will look different for the Rams. Todd Gurley and Brandin Cooks are no longer there, so defenses will be focusing on stopping Kupp. He will still be productive, but should be viewed as a WR2.
20. D.J. Moore, Carolina Panthers
In 15 games, Moore ranked 21st for fantasy wide receivers last season and that’s with no stability at the quarterback position. With Teddy Bridgewater providing some consistency, Moore should break the top 20.
21. Stefon Diggs, Buffalo Bills
Diggs was the 18th-ranked receiver last season, but now joins the Buffalo Bills. The Bills have plenty of speedsters and Diggs will be the best, although the ball will likely be spread around a little bit.
22. T.Y. Hilton, Indianapolis Colts
23. Julian Edelman, New England Patriots
Tom Brady is no longer in New England, but now it is Cam Newton‘s show. If he can stay healthy, Edelman will be the perfect target for Newton to use heavily.
24. Tyler Lockett, Seattle Seahawks
Russell Wilson is very efficient when targeting Tyler Lockett and that will probably continue in 2020. Last season, he ranked 15th, but with the emergence of D.K. Metcalf his productivity could drop a little bit.
25. Terry McLaurin, Washington Redskins
He played in 14 games, but still ranked 24th for fantasy receivers as a rookie. With a season under his and quarterback Dwayne Haskins‘ belts, McLaurin should improve just a little bit this season.
26. D.K. Metcalf, Seattle Seahawks
Metcalf had a fantastic rookie season and ranked 30th for fantasy receivers. In year two, he should be able to move up a few spots on the rankings and produce more.
27. Calvin Ridley, Atlanta Falcons
Ridley ranked 23rd last year in 13 games played. If the Falcons win more games this year, they should run the ball more, which will likely move Ridley down a few spots in the rankings.
28. D.J. Chark, Jacksonville Jaguars
Chark had a breakout season in 2019, where he ranked 16th. The Jaguars added another receiver though in Laviska Shenault in the 2020 NFL Draft. The Jaguars look like they won’t be very successful next season and Chark could take a hit.
29. A.J. Green, Cincinnati Bengals
The past few seasons, Green has been injured and hasn’t played much. He is supremely talented, but still needs to show that he still has it. Green will also have to deal with a rookie quarterback in Joe Burrow, so picking him will be risky.
30. Deebo Samuel, San Francisco 49ers
Samuel’s versatility showed up last season for the 49ers as he ranked 26th for fantasy receivers. The 49ers added Brandon Aiyuk, but lost Emmanuel Sanders, so Samuel should be able to replicate his success.
