Fantasy Football: Preseason Wide Receiver Rankings – Week 4

Fantasy Football is becoming very focused on the Wide Receiver Position. As many as eight Wide Receivers can go in the top-12 of Fantasy Football drafts.

Things can change quickly at the position. A quarterback without an elite wide receiver may favor a different target from week to week. In places like Tennessee, they don’t have an elite option, but have three above-average wide receivers and a really good tight end. Be sure to stay on top of the target distribution.

Quality options and bye week fill-ins can be found on the waiver wire.

The Risers

Washington Redskins wide receiver, DeSean Jackson, has been a dynamic receiver in his time in the league. After a solid first half in week three, Jackson moves up the board in my rankings.

Tennessee Titans rookie wide receiver, Tajae Sharpe, has recently earned a job starting on the opposite side of the field as fellow newcomer, Rishard Matthews. He has a big body and the athletic ability to go up and get the ball. Sharpe is a name to stash if you have a roster spot available. He has been making noise all offseason and it looks like the Titans are going to give him a shot.

The Fallers

Jaelen Strong, wide receiver of the Houston Texans, was expected to take a leap in 2016 after a disappointing 2015 season. Rookie wide receiver, Will Fuller, out of Notre Dame, has certainly interrupted those plans. Strong has been very quiet this offseason, losing out to both Fuller and another rookie in Braxton Miller.
