Computer Advice on Which Wide Receivers to Draft in 2019: Davante Adams, Odell Beckham, or DeAndre Hopkins?

The computer is constantly updating fantasy football projections, even in the off-season, and in our most recent update for wide receivers DeAndre Hopkins is number one, followed by Davante Adams and Odell Beckham. T.Y. Hilton and Adam Thielen are not in the very upper tier, but they are solid options as well. If you are looking to take a tight ends high in the draft the projection recommends Travis Kelce and Zach Ertz. If you are looking for good, but not elite, starting running backs consider Damien Williams or Marlon Mack. The tables below show projected rankings based on total fantasy points (along with their per game fantasy projection). In cases where a player is a free agent we have their team from the 2018 season.

Top 60 Wide Receivers

Julian Edelman is projected to average 10.4 fantasy points per game and his projected total of 167 points is good enough to be ranked #13 at his position. His projected rank this season is obviously much improved vs last season where he only appeared in 12 games. Tyler Lockett is not projected to be as good in 2019 (#23) as he was in 2018 where he finished as the #11 wide receiver. With 134 total projected fantasy points he is still a starting fantasy wide receiver.

Top 24 Tight Ends

The #14 ranked tight end is Jordan Reed with a projection of 82 total fantasy points. In 2018 he was just the #17 ranked player at the position. He could be someone worth more than you might think in 2019. One player who is expected to slip in the fantasy tight end rankings is Jimmy Graham who last season was #14 but is projected to be #20 this season. With 75 total projected fantasy points he is still capable of helping teams in certain matchups.
