No new names at the top of these wide receiver fantasy football rankings as the best in the business continue to lead the way.

Fantasy football rankings can be a little finicky every year, especially as quarterback play can be such a major component (see Allen Robinson, 2016). But there will always be a handful of blue chip players that can be relied upon to put up big numbers no matter who is throwing their way.

In these wide receiver fantasy rankings, we look at the top 75 as the 2017 fantasy football season inches closer.

1) Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh Steelers

The number one receiver in fantasy for 2016 is back fully healthy with even more weapons next to him in 2017. The only worry for him is if he will see less targets due to the multitude of weapons in the offense.

2) Julio Jones, Atlanta Falcons

Julio is the best receiver in the NFL but he doesn’t see quite as many targets as other players on this list. However, he could be relied upon by Matt Ryan as they learn a new offense this season.

3) Odell Beckham Jr, New York Giants

The Giants receiving corps is down right scary. Look for Beckham to lead the way once again as he is playing in a contract year. It wouldn’t surprise me if he is the number one receiver in fantasy by the end of the season.

4) Mike Evans, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Evans saw 175 targets last year. I don’t think he will see quite that many this year but he should still be very productive as the number one receiver in Tampa.

5) T.Y. Hilton, Indianapolis Colts

As we’ve seen the last few seasons, Hilton and Andrew Luck have a great connection, the Colts should be playing from behind a lot so look for Hilton to have another big season as long as Luck’s shoulder holds up.

6) Jordy Nelson, Green Bay Packers

The number two receiver in fantasy last year is back again with the best quarterback in football. However, he shouldn’t see quite as many targets this year as Martellus Bennett will get quite a few of his own, especially in the redzone.

7) A.J. Green, Cincinnati Bengals

Green is one of the most consistent players in the league, he should be used heavily once again in Cincinnati.

More from Black and Teal

8) Michael Thomas, New Orleans Saints

Thomas broke out in his rookie year in 2016 and finished as the seventh best receiver in fantasy. The only issue here is that Brandin Cooks is gone now so Thomas will see more coverage rolled his way, we’ll see how he responds in his second year.

9) Amari Cooper, Oakland Raiders

The Raiders offense looks lethal entering the 2017 season, Cooper and Crabtree could both have monster years as Derek Carr enters his fourth year in the league.

10) Dez Bryant, Dallas Cowboys

Dez has underwhelmed the last few years due to injuries to himself and former quarterback Tony Romo. Hopefully, the stars align for him this year to return to his dominant self and grow his connection with Dak Prescott.

11)  DeAndre Hopkins, Houston Texans

12) Alshon Jeffery, Philadelphia Eagles

13) Allen Robinson, Jacksonville Jaguars

14) Golden Tate, Detroit Lions

15) Demaryius Thomas, Denver Broncos

16) Doug Baldwin, Seattle Seahawks

17) Emmanuel Sanders, Denver Broncos

18) Brandin Cooks, New England Patriots

I love this move for the Patriots from a football perspective but not as much from a fantasy perspective. There are a lot of mouths to feed in New England and Cooks isn’t going to have the numbers that many people are projecting.

19) Keenan Allen, Los Angeles Chargers

Somewhat of a sleeper here as injuries have derailed his career. If Allen can stay healthy he has the ability to finish as a top-five receiver in fantasy.

20) Julian Edelman, New England Patriots

21) Terrelle Pryor, Washington Redskins

22) Jarvis Landry, Miami Dolphins

23) Sammy Watkins , Buffalo Bills

24) Pierre Garcon, San Francisco 49ers

He should be the number one receiver in San Francisco under a Kyle Shanahan-led offense, he could go higher than expected in some leagues.

25) Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona Cardinals

26) Corey Davis, Tennessee Titans

27) Davante Adams, Green Bay Packers

28) Michael Crabtree, Oakland Raiders

29) Stefon Diggs, Minnesota Vikings

30) Tyreek Hill, Kansas City Chiefs

He’s now the number one receiver in Kansas City with Jeremy Maclin being released, he could wind up higher on my board before fantasy draft season.

31) Donte Moncrief , Indianapolis Colts

32) Willie Snead, New Orleans Saints

33) Brandon Marshall, New York Giants

34) Jamison Crowder, Washington Redskins

35) Kelvin Benjamin , Carolina Panthers

36) Marvin Jones, Detroit Lions

37) Corey Coleman, Cleveland Browns

38) DeSean Jackson, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

39) Rishard Matthews, Tennessee Titans

40) Randall Cobb, Green Bay Packers

41) Mike Wallace, Baltimore Ravens

42) Kenny Britt, Cleveland Browns

43) Martavis Bryant , Pittsburgh Steelers

44) Adam Thielen, Minnesota Vikings

45) Cameron Meredith, Chicago Bears

46)  Jordan Matthews, Philadelphia Eagles

47) Marqise Lee, Jacksonville Jaguars

Lee is a name I’d keep an eye on in your draft. He seemed to develop a good rapport with quarterback Blake Bortles last season and if he stays healthy it wouldn’t surprise me if he is Jacksonville’s leading receiver for the season.

48) Jeremy Maclin, Baltimore Ravens

49) Kenny Stills, Miami Dolphins

50) Breshad Perriman, Baltimore Ravens

51) Devante Parker, Miami Dolphins

52) Kevin White, Chicago Bears

53) Mike Williams, Los Angeles Chargers

54) Ted Ginn, New Orleans Saints

55) Quincy Enunwa, New York Jets

56) Sterling Shepard, New York Giants

57) Tavon Austin, Los Angeles Rams

58) Mohamed Sanu , Atlanta Falcons

59) John Brown, Arizona Cardinals

60) Tyler Lockett, Seattle Seahawks

61) Will Fuller, Houston Texans

Fuller could produce in a big way this season. He dropped a lot of catchable passes last year and he should see better quarterback play this year as well, he could be a sleeper who pays off in a big way.

62) Josh Doctson, Washington Redskins

63) J.J. Nelson, Arizona Cardinals

64) Allen Hurns, Jacksonville Jaguars

65) John Ross, Cincinnati Bengals

66) Torrey Smith, Philadelphia Eagles

67) Taylor Gabriel, Atlanta Falcons

68) Cole Beasley, Dallas Cowboys

69) Zay Jones, Buffalo Bills

70) Jeremy Kerley, San Francisco 49ers

71) Terrance Williams, Dallas Cowboys

72) Robert Woods, Los Angeles Rams

73) Laquon Treadwell, Minnesota Vikings

74) Curtis Samuel, Carolina Panthers

75) Eric Decker, Tennessee Titans
