Fantasy Football: WR depth chart and rankings

Ranking and keeping track of wide receivers around the league.

Rankings: QB | HB | WR | TE

It’s always important to keep an eye on team’s depth charts in the fantasy world. There’s nothing more frustrating than wasting a draft pick on a player who is buried in the depth chart and, unless a plague sweeps the team, has no real chance at seeing consistent playing time during the season.

Here is the wide receiver depth chart for all 32 teams. The receivers labeled Starters are currently set to be the outside receivers come September. I’ve added Slot to the Backup category simply because most teams run three receivers so all three are valid options. However, on some depth charts, a slot receiver was not specified so the receiver shown is just the next in line.

For each WR, I’ve attached a Value to them (where I see their fantasy value currently at in standard leagues): WR1 (top 10), WR2 (11-25), Flex (25-45), Flier (worth a late pick) and Don’t Bother (pretty self explanatory). This value is as the roster currently stands.


Note: Depth chart will be updated throughout offseason.
