2019 WR Rankings Part 1 & Preseason Buy or Sell

August 13th, 2019

Wide receiver might be the single most important position when it comes to rankings. Outside of the top 10 to 12 guys, it can be a crapshoot, but landing Tyler Boyd in 2018, Adam Thielen in 2017, or Davante Adams in 2016 could mean the difference between hoisting your league’s championship trophy or crying yourself to sleep on Santa’s lap on December 23rd. With that in mind, Jeff, Joe & Murphy bring you this two part dive into their consensus top 36 WRs for 2019. 

Stay tuned for Part 2  of The Fantasy Takeaway Consensus WR Rankings on Thursday.
