The fantasy football season is finally approaching, and that means it's time to start preparing for you fantasy football draft! We've got you covered with everything you need for draft prep on The Duel, and that includes player rankings.

With that in mind, let's take a closer look at our rankings for the top wide receivers in point-per-reception (PPR) leagues.

Fantasy Football Wide Receiver Rankings

12. Amari Cooper, Dallas Cowboys

11. Mike Evans, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

10. JuJu Smith-Schuster, Pittsburgh Steelers

JuJu Smith-Schuster absolutely bombed in 2019, but he did finish ninth at the position in fantasy scoring in 2018. He even opened the 2019 season well, with a respectable 6 receptions for 78 yards against an insanely dominant New England Patriots defense. Then he lost Ben Roethlisberger, and playing with Mason Rudolph and Devlin Hodges didn't go well. With Roethlisberger back under center this year, Smith-Schuster should be in for a big bounce-back campaign.

9. Odell Beckham, Cleveland Browns

8. Chris Godwin, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

7. Allen Robinson, Chicago Bears

6. Kenny Golladay, Detroit Lions

Kenny Golladay finished as the WR9 in fantasy football in 2019 despite playing with backup quarterbacks for half the season. In eight games with Stafford, Golladay averaged 7.8 targets, 4.4 receptions, 80.0 yards and 0.9 touchdowns per game. That 17.8 fantasy point per game pace would have put him at WR6 for the season, and only 0.1 point per game out of a tie for WR4.

5. Julio Jones, Atlanta Falcons

4. DeAndre Hopkins, Arizona Cardinals

3. Tyreek Hill, Kansas City Chiefs

2. Davante Adams, Green Bay Packers

1. Michael Thomas, New Orleans Saints

Michael Thomas finished with almost 100 fantasy points more than any other wideout in 2019, and not a whole lot about his situation has changed. He'll still be catching passes from Drew Brees in a pass-first offense, and there's still not a huge amount of competition for targets. Emmanuel Sanders may cut into Thomas' volume some, but losing a few receptions from a guy that just set the NFL single-season record with 149 in 2019 isn't too much to be worried about.
