Getting your wide receiver tiers in order is one of the most important parts of your draft strategy.
TARGET AT ADP: Kupp, Jefferson
Jefferson over Kupp is a thing now, and I get it with the concerns about Matthew Stafford’s elbow. A top-four pick is a wonderful thing this year.
NEARLY ELITE WR1
Ja’Marr Chase, CIN
TARGET AT ADP: Chase
Austin Ekeler, even Dalvin Cook or Travis Kelce over Chase is understandable, but that’s about as far as Chase should fall in any PPR draft. His season relied on big plays, but like his college teammate Jefferson, he could get even better in year two.
AVOID AT ADP: Samuel
This group is there for you if you don’t love any running backs in the late first-late second range. Evans' hamstring is better now (fingers crossed), Adams' Week 1 matchup just got better with J.C. Jackson hurt, and Hill has been dominant in Miami camp. Samuel is the only fade because it’s hard to know if his run game involvement will be as extensive and Brandon Aiyuk is emerging.
HIGH CEILING WR2
TARGET ABOVE ADP: Sutton
TARGET AT ADP: Higgins, Brown, Pittman, Moore
It won’t be a surprise to see any of these receivers in the Top 10, even though most of them will go outside of the Top 10 in drafts. Your third-round PPR pick should probably be one of this group, Kyle Pitts or Nick Chubb.
CITY OF ANGELS WR2
TARGET AT ADP: Robinson
The Los Angeles common thread is somewhat arbitrary. Still, this group is together because they have a lower ceiling (without serious injury to another starting wide receiver on their team) than the group above.
