Football is back and that means it’s time to drop some wide receiver rankings. Week 1 is always a tough week to rank simply because we have no real idea how these teams are going to play and we know even less after this crazy offseason.

I’m doing my best Roxette impression and listening to my heart on these rankings and my heart is telling me this is going to be a BIG JuJu Smith-Schuster week. I think it’s going to be a big Steelers week overall but Smith-Schuster is about to remind us all just what he can do when he’s playing with a healthy Ben Roethlisberger.

Also make sure you start DeSean Jackson and Will Fuller this week as this might be the only week of the year that we know with certainty they are healthy and will play. Both have terrific matchups and there’s a real chance they come out guns a-blazing to start the year.
