Fantasy Football Rankings: The Top 50 Wide Receivers
While I wait for the National Football League to start up again, I’ve decided to re-watch the FXX television show The League in its entirety for probably the 11th time while preparing for my own home league’s fantasy football draft (for about the same) in the interim.
As I go down the list of players I’ve set up using numberFire’s season-long projections as the foundation of my spreadsheets, I’m reminded of the episode of The League where one of the characters can't set a lineup -- or make a life decision -- without considering the rankings first. We here at numberFire eat, sleep, and breathe data, so we don’t think it’s negative to be in tune with the rankings, especially when it comes to this year’s wide receivers.
It’s a clear-cut decision at the top of the charts for the premium models of fantasy wideouts in 2016, but the lower end offers some tough choices. numberFire’s rankings and our FireFactor metric can help you sift through the rankings to find the best bang for your fantasy buck.
