3 solid wide receivers to target in the first few rounds. The Counselor makes some suggestions for you to play it smart early on.
3 Fantasy Football Wide Receivers to Target Early in 2020
- Michael Thomas
- Davante Adams
- Julio Jones
I love the talent of all three of these guys. I suggest you don’t draft a WR early, but if you do these are the guys to look at. They all have consistent numbers and have performed with consistency for years. Adams is due for a bounce-back year as he was a little banged up last year. Go robust RB, but keep these guys in mind in case you decide to go WR early.
Yes, Thomas has a pinnacle year last year, but what goes up must come down. I am expecting a decline for Thomas in 2020, but not enough to take him out of top 5 contention. There is no way I see him getting 185 targets again, and achieving the stats he put up last year, but should still be solid.
Adams will bounce back this year and Rodgers will have to throw his the ball more if the Packers want to succeed. He should be back into the 2019 form again and will get at least 150 targets and 10 TD’s as a floor. I like the ceiling here and Rodgers has a chip on his shoulder in 2020, as everyone is saying he is washed up and done. The Packers could be solid if they make the right moves in the NFL draft and use their tools properly.
Mr. Consistent Julio Jones. The addition of Todd Gurley will help the Falcons a lot this year. The Falcons have all the tools to become Superbowl contenders. I know Julio has been criticized for not getting a lot of touchdowns, but he makes up for in PPR with receptions and big yardage. Expect another solid year out of this man for fantasy football 2020.
