Tier 1

1. Justin Jefferson, Minnesota Vikings

Jefferson was the clear top wide receiver in football last season, and he is showing no signs of slowing down.

  • He led all wide receivers last season with 7.5 receptions per game for 106.4 yards and 21.7 PPR points.
  • He has achieved a 90.0-plus PFF receiving grade in all three seasons of his NFL career.
  • He recently turned 24 years old, so he’s still at a point in his career where he should be improving.
  • Among the elite wide receiver options, he has the best combination of great offense and not as much competition for targets.

2. Ja'Marr Chase, Cincinnati Bengals

Chase looks to build on his strong sophomore season.

  • Chase finished in the top four per game in targets (9.8), receptions (6.7), touchdowns (0.69) and PPR points (18.6)
  • His problem as a rookie was consistency from game to game. That carried on to begin 2022.
  • He recorded fewer than 55 yards in three of his first five games, and fewer than seven receptions in three of his first four.
  • Starting in October, he was far more consistent outside of the four games he missed due to injury. He averaged 7.8 receptions for 100 yards and a touchdown a game over his last seven games.
  • If Chase continues at that rate, overall WR1 is in his range of outcomes.

3. Tyreek Hill, Miami Dolphins

Hill was the most efficient wide receiver in fantasy football last season, and he can build on his success in 2023.

  • Hill produced a 31.3% target rate, leading to a catch on 22.3% of his routes. Those both ranked first out of 73 wide receivers with at least 345 routes last season.
  • All of those receptions helped him average just more than 100 receiving yards per game, which ranked second best among wide receivers.
  • The biggest concern for Hill’s fantasy potential is how the Dolphins rotate their wide receivers. Hill played every game in 2022 but ranked only 32nd in number of routes run.
  • Hill was on the field for just 76.1% of offensive snaps. That includes 84.2% of pass plays and 59.4% of run plays.
  • For comparison, Justin Jefferson was on the field for 94.4% of the Minnesota Vikings’ pass plays and Ja’Marr Chase was on the field for 98.8% of the Cincinnati Bengals’ pass plays in games for which he was healthy.
  • This helped Hill stay efficient because he was more rested compared to other elite wide receivers.
  • This makes it less likely he sees significant regression in his quality of play, but it also puts a ceiling on his potential.
  • Hill’s production will partially rely on Tua Tagovailoa staying healthy all season.
  • He still produced a high targets-per-route-run figure when Tagovailoa was out, at 27.0%, but his yards per route run fell to 2.08 and he didn’t score a touchdown in the five games Tagovailoa missed, including the playoffs.
  • In comparison, his targets per route figure with Tagovailoa was 33.2% and he averaged 3.51 yards per route run.
