DraftHustle 2020 Draft Manifesto: Wide Receivers

Fantasy draft are starting to ramp up as we get closer to the start of the 2020 NFL season. Having done 50+ bestball drafts so far this season, I believe I have a pretty good idea on how I plan on drafting in my season long leagues, as well as what the good and bad values are for all of your favorite players. Over the next few days, I will be giving my overall strategy and other bits of advice on drafting the 4 Primary Fantasy Football positions in 2020.

General Strategy

The elite WRs were a big let down last season, which has led to surge of RBs being drafted early. The bad thing is this has caused fantasy owners to feel obligated to grab RBs early and often. The good thing is that WRs are being pushed down, making them great values. There are a clear top 5 WRs who deserve to drafted in the first 2 rounds. After that there are about 20 WRs who have legitimate top 12 WR potential. This pack of WRs is my favorite group to draft from. In a perfect world, I would like to have 3 WRs form this group in my team, drafting them in Rounds 3 – 6. A mixture of safety and upside among those WRs is ideal for any managed team I would draft.

After that group there is an even bigger group of WRs who all have the potential to finish as top 30 WRs. If you go heavy on RBs early, you be assured of getting WRs who are starters in their offense, which gives them safe target floor, as starters on your fantasy team. Some guys I like among this group are Jamison Crowder and Sterling Shepard. If you are in the market for more upside guys, Desean Jackson and Sammy Watkins are guys I like to target. Rounds 8-11 are the range I like to grab these guys in to fill out my bench.
