Fantasy Football 2014: Finding the Best Fantasy Value for Wide Receivers

Last week we looked at quarterbacks and running backs currently offering the best value in fantasy football. In this edition, we pay special attention to this year’s deep group of wide receivers, locating the guys who should offer the best return on investment in drafts.

As we did with QBs and RBs, to determine in which rounds of the draft you will find the top value picks, we will compare my top 200 personal player rankings against two of the most statistically sound draft tools in the fantasy universe: FantasyPros.com’s Expert Consensus Ranking (ECR) and FantasyFootballCalculator.com’s Average Draft Position (ADP) for 12-team, standard-league mock drafts.

For each player profiled here, a comparison table will help illustrate the difference between these three measures. This variance in rankings will reveal some of the best steals at wide receiver in the early, mid and late rounds of the draft. For the purposes of this piece, these categories are defined as follows, according to each player’s ADP:

  • Early Rounds: Nos. 1-5
  • Mid Rounds: Nos. 6-10
  • Late Rounds: No. 11 or later

Capitalizing on undervalued players is one of the most tried and true formulas for fantasy success. Enjoy the following recommendations and don’t hesitate to share your favorite value picks in the comments!
