Fantasy Football: Top 10 WR Heading Into NFL 2016

1. Antonio Brown (PIT)

Obvious choice here.  Antonio Brown has been hands-down the best receiver in the game, as well as the owner of the best super-kick.  Talking about the straight kick Brown issued to then-Browns’ punter Spencer Lanning in 2014.

The most consistent and reliable receiver in the game, it is no wonder that Big Ben is always finding a way to get the ball into Brown’s hands.  He can not only beat a secondary without the ball, he can take the ball all the way with his elusiveness and incredible route running ability.

2015 saw nine of Brown’s 16 games result in 100 yards or more, two of which 195 and 284.  The 284 game Brown managed an unimpressive 17 catches as well.

Obviously joking about that being unimpressive.

Not only is Brown the best receiver, he is in the argument for best punt returner as well.  It may not be an argument though, because he is a tremendous returner.  He is the first player in NFL history to have 1,000 yards returning and 1,000 yards receiving in a single season.

As long as Roethlisberger can stay healthy Brown should have zero issues with piling up more ridiculous stats and keeping his place at the top of the list for fantasy wide receivers in the NFL.

Prediction: 135 Catches – 1970 Yards – 11 Touchdowns
