Tyreek Hill (KC)
Hill had 23 red zone goals, the third most in the NFL, but this statistic is misleading. Why? Because pretty much every target is a red zone target for someone as fast as Hill and as explosive an offensive as Kansas City’s. Do you want evidence? Hill has scored 28 touchdowns from 40 yards or more in his last four seasons. 28! As long as Patrick Mahomes is the Chiefs quarterback, Hill will be a dominant force in the wide receiver position. He and Davante Adams are the 1A and 1B options on the position, and he is worthy of a first-round pick.
DeAndre Hopkins (ARI)
Hopkins saw 160 goals and a 29% goal percentage in his freshman year at Arizona and became the fifth best wide receiver in fantasy in semi-PPR formats. It wasn’t a perfect season for the veteran as he was a bit inconsistent, being kept at 55 yards or less in seven of his 16 games, and only having six touchdowns. But at least part of that inconsistency was due to Kyler Murray playing through a shoulder injury, and the simple fact is that Hopkins saw less than seven goals in just one game last year. The inclusion of Rondale Moore in the draft shouldn’t have much of an impact on Hopkins, who will again have a dominant target stake and, if healthy, will be an excellent WR1 again.
CeeDee Lamb (DAL)
There’s no telling how good Lamb would have been in his rookie season if Dak Prescott had stayed healthy all year. With Prescott at the center for the first five games, Lamb was the WR12 in semi-PPR formats. Without Prescott, he was 32nd and rarely explosive (with 85 yards receiving and only over 65 twice). With Prescott’s return and a perfectly healthy appearance, Lamb has a chance to stand out as the Cowboys slot recipient, especially if he can cut the drops a bit (eight total last season, third most in the league). Whether you draw him or Amari Cooper first, he should be an excellent WR2 with advantages.
