Our Fantasy Football Power Rankings continue on here at SideLion Report. This time around, we look at the wide receivers.

The position itself has become highly competitive as of late, especially from a fantasy football standpoint. Guys like Dez Bryant, Calvin Johnson, Antonio Brown, Demaryius Thomas, and Odell Beckham Jr. are names that immediately come to mind.

Scoring: These rankings are based on standard scoring (one point per 25 passing yards and per 10 rushing/receiving yards and four points per passing touchdown and six points per rushing/receiving touchdown) and are for the 2015 NFL season only.

The question is however, where do they rank when stacked up against each other?

With the 2015 NFL and Fantasy Football season right around the corner, we here at SLR are going to give you our opinion on that very subject.

We’ve given you are top 20 quarterbacks and top 20 running backs — now we give you our top 20 wide receivers in fantasy football for 2015.
