The season is never over in keeper and dynasty leagues. If you’re already out, it’s time to make some roster moves for next season. Below are 20 wide receivers worth stashing that could pay off for your 2018 fantasy team.
1. Corey Davis, Tennessee
2. Mike Williams, Los Angeles Chargers
3. John Ross, Cincinnati
It’s safe to say the three receivers taken among the first ten picks of the 2017 draft did not exactly live up to billing. The trio has 35 catches combined through 13 games, so they might have slipped off the radar even in keeper leagues. Davis should be Mariota’s top target next fall. Williams and Ross are behind Keenan Allen and A.J. Green in the pecking order but will benefit playing next to them.
4. Allen Robinson, Jacksonville
5. Terrelle Pryor, Washington
6. Sammy Watkins, Los Angeles Rams
These three are all free agents, and thank goodness. Robinson’s quarterback situation can only improve elsewhere, and he was a top five WR two years ago. Pryor was one of this year’s big sleepers but never caught on in Washington, and Watkins hasn’t found a target share for the Rams. Both are big time talents that will benefit from a change of scenery.
7. Chris Hogan, New England
8. Robert Woods, Los Angeles Rams
Hogan and Woods were quietly producing steady numbers before injuries interrupted their seasons, both proving to be consistent redzone threats. They were top 25 when healthy, and they’re healthy again now so snatch them up before your league mates do.
9. Julian Edelman, New England
Forgot about him, didn’t you?
10. Will Fuller, Houston
Fuller was never going to keep up his insane production rate, with seven touchdowns in his first 13 catches this year, but he’s a dynamic threat for Deshaun Watson and may have been cut by owners who thought he was done for the season.
11. Marquise Goodwin and 12. Trent Taylor, San Francisco
Jimmy Garoppolo looks good for the 49ers, and he’s had good rapport with Goodwin, his deep threat, and Taylor, his slot guy. Year two for everyone in Kyle Shanahan’s offense could see them all become much more valuable.
13. Randall Cobb and 14. Geronimo Allison, Green Bay
Davante Adams is a free agent and Jordy Nelson is older with a history of injuries. Cobb is the obvious answer if Green Bay needs someone to throw to, but Allison has the size and big play ability to replace Davante Adams outside the numbers if Adams leaves.
15. Dede Westbrook, Jacksonville
Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee are free agents, and Westbrook has had folks talking his whole rookie season without even getting onto the field. He could end up the Jaguars top 2018 receiver.
16. Josh Doctson, Washington
Doctson was a Redskins first round pick a year ago, and he’s taken the job most thought was Terrelle Pryor’s. Pryor should be gone in free agency, but Kirk Cousins could leave too, so this is a wildcard.
17. Martavis Bryant, Pittsburgh
There’s no questioning Bryant’s talent, it’s just a matter of getting his act together and getting more consistent. With JuJu Smith-Schuster in Pittsburgh, the Steelers could move on and maybe Bryant benefits from a fresh start.
18. Chris Godwin, Tampa Bay
Godwin is a hugely talented rookie out of Penn State who has seen his role increase late in the season, so don’t be surprised if he steals DeSean Jackson’s job next year next to Mike Evans.
19. Chad Williams, Arizona
The ageless Larry Fitzgerald signed an extension and will be back, but both John and Jaron Brown are free agents and J.J. Nelson looks better suited for a deep ball role. Williams is a third round pick from Grambling State that could get to start across from Fitz.
20. Odell Beckham, New York Giants
Just check and make sure.
