Fantasy Football Power Rankings: Wide Receivers 1-5

WR. New York Giants. Odell Beckham. 5. player. 31. New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. busted on to the scene like some other previously mentioned rookies despite missing a considerable amount of time. Along with posting nine consecutive games of 90+ yards, OBJ posted a uber impressive stat line of 81/1,199/9 and caught what many consider to be the best catch of the modern era. Will there be a sophomore slump in 2015? That’s debatable to no end — literally. We’ll just have to wait and see. If it were up to me though, I’d have zero qualms with going after the former LSU Tiger early in any fantasy football draft.

Detroit Lions. Calvin Johnson. 4. player. 50. Some aren’t afraid to tell you that Calvin Johnson’s better days on the football field are behind him. This is largely due to the fact that Johnson has had his fair share of issues staying healthy, most noticeably last year. Johnson still managed to eclipse the 1,000 yard mark in 2014, and has averaged 90 catches, 1,467 yards and 11 touchdowns over the last five seasons. I strongly encourage you not to be discouraged to draft Johnson in your upcoming fantasy football draft.. WR

Denver Broncos. Demaryius Thomas. 3. player. 45. The great Peyton Manning is back for one more year in Denver, despite what you think his condition might be. The fact is, Peyton is very good during the regular season, and his No. 1 option on the Broncos roster is none other than <strong><a href=. WR

Dallas Cowboys. Dez Bryant. 2. player. 123. Whether you love or hate Dez Bryant the football player, there is absolutely no denying his on the field abilities. Despite a career low in targets last season, Bryant posted 88 receptions for 1,320 yards along with a career-high (and league leading) 16 touchdowns. There may be some concerns with his contract situation, but you cannot let that detour you from drafting a guy the caliber of Dez Bryant.. WR

55. Despite his small size, Antonio Brown is a monster on the football field — not just in PPR either, but in standard scoring as well. Don’t believe me? Just ask the guy below.. WR. Pittsburgh Steelers. Antonio Brown. 1. player
