Fantasy Advice on Which WR to Draft in 2019: Julio Jones, Antonio Brown, or Tyreek Hill?

In our latest projections for wide receivers Tyreek Hill is number one, followed by Julio Jones and Antonio Brown. Mike Evans and Michael Thomas 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 Sony Michel or Leonard Fournette. 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

The #2 ranked wide receiver is Julio Jones with a projection of 207 total fantasy points. In 2018 he was just the #5 ranked player at the position. He could be someone worth more than you might think in 2019. Dede Westbrook is not projected to be as good in 2019 (#57) as he was in 2018 where he finished as the #35 wide receiver. With 93 total projected fantasy points he is still capable of helping teams in certain matchups.
