The NFL is a passing league. We saw it more than ever last season and 2021 should mark another big jump in the production at the wide receiver position. and the the wide receiver position continues to be a premium position in all of your fantasy football rankings cheat sheets. Even with 2021 fantasy drafts seeing a rise in running backs being drafted Round 1, it’s the wideouts that can help take your team to the promise land.
Superstars like Davante Adams, Tyreek Hill and DeAndre Hopkins still sit atop the position, however they are joined by Stefon Diggs, Calvin Ridley and D.K Metcalf.
