We rank the fantasy football wide receivers in non-PPR leagues for the2021 season.

The NFL season is just around the corner as training camp has started in earnest. Below you will find our fantasy football wide receiver PPR rankings. Training camp is meaningful and what we learn over the next month will help us rank these players more accurately. But, the bulk of evaluation has been done already. At this point rankings will move based on injuries and camp battles, but that’s extremely important information for our predictions.

Last season Davante Adams led the way in both PPR and non-PPR, but Tyreek Hill was right on his tail in non-PPR, with just a couple fantasy points to move ahead to the top spot. This season Adams remains the safest play, but Hill will have more upside in standard leagues than Adams. Deep ball receivers get a bump in standard leagues as yardage and touchdowns are all that matters, but we still want players with big usage to keep them as safe plays. Hill used to be considered more of a boom or bust deep ball guy, but he’s turned into a safe play in both PPR and non-PPR at this point.
