Fantasy Football Wide Receivers to Target – Number 8: JuJu Smith-Schuster
Like Thielen, JuJu Smith-Schuster’s fantasy season last year did not go as planned. Not only did he miss four games, but Ben Roethlisberger was also injured for basically the entire season.
It still remains to be seen how much Roethlisberger has left in the tank, but even a 75% Roethlisberger is an upgrade for Smith-Schuster’s fantasy outlook. He might be looked at as a guy with some risk because of this, but he also has an extremely high ceiling in 2020.
Without a guy named Duck Hodges throwing the football to him, JuJu should be able to rebound after a lackluster 2019 campaign. Give him a chance this year to redeem himself because you probably won’t regret it.
Fantasy Football Wide Receivers to Target – Number 7: D.J. Moore
D.J. Moore was WR13 in 2019 before missing the final game of the year and he was also top 10 amongst wide receivers in targets despite missing a game. He presumably gets a quarterback upgrade this season along with an added year of experience to his belt. It’s hard to see him going anywhere but up.
Moore was one of the more consistent fantasy performers last season, which gives him a very high floor and in most drafts you can get him as your WR2. Moore is a guy who could really shatter his ADP once again.
With a legitimate quarterback in Teddy Bridgewater, Moore is going to be a better fantasy option and will be a nice player to have on your fantasy team.
Fantasy Football Wide Receivers to Target – Number 6: DeAndre Hopkins
Once you get to two through six in the wide receiver rankings, it could really go any which way. All of the top six receivers are elite and could finish in any order really.
DeAndre Hopkins had a change of scenery this offseason, which led to his falling to WR6.
He did land in a great spot with a quarterback who is a lot of people’s dark horse for MVP this year, but he has more target competition in Arizona than he did in Houston and he will have to reestablish chemistry with a new quarterback.
Nevertheless, I wouldn’t be too worried about Hopkins this season, so fire him up as your WR1 if he’s available.
