Fantasy Football Cheat Sheet: Wide Receiver Targets

Cooper Kupp, Los Angeles Rams

Coming off of a torn ACL in 2018, the Rams certainly didn’t waste any time going right back to Kupp as one of their top wide receivers last year. He started out the season by logging at least 100 receiving yards in four of the first five games, and he also scored four touchdowns during that stretch. His highlight of the season came in Week 8 when he torched the Bengals for 220 yards and a touchdown.

Kupp checks in as the sixth-ranked wide receiver and the 20th player overall in the top 280 rankings. That puts him ahead of fellow wide receivers including DeAndre Hopkins (33rd overall), Mike Evans (34th) and Odell Beckham (43rd). The key is that Kupp received 134 targets last year and caught 94 of them. His targets could actually be on the rise this season after Brandin Cooks was traded to the Texans, so expect him to be one of the safer options at his position.

Jarvis Landry, Cleveland Browns

The Browns had a disappointing season in 2019, but Landry wasn’t to blame. He finished with a career-high 1,174 receiving yards and formed a scary duo with Beckham, who finished with over 1,000 receiving yards of his own. Neither player had a shortage of targets either, with Landry receiving 138 of them and Beckham registering 133. Another plus for Landry was that he finished with six touchdown receptions, which was the second-highest total of his career.

The good news with Landry is that he’s been a target monster throughout his career. He’s never finished with fewer than 112 targets and has received at least 131 of them in each of the last five seasons. His downside normally comes in the touchdown department. Despite his heavy workload, he’s finished with five or fewer touchdowns in four of his six seasons in the league. That might be a hindrance for him in standard scoring, but he’s still an excellent option to target in PPR leagues, which is why he’s ranked 64th in the top 280 overall.

Steven Sims, Washington Football Team

Let’s dive deep into the cheat sheet to possibly find a hidden gem to target in the later rounds of your draft. Terry McLaurin made headlines for Washington during his rookie season and is without question the wide receiver that they plan to build their passing attack around. However, he can’t carry this offense all by himself. Washington’s running back position is suddenly up in the air after the release of Derrius Guice and they don’t have any inspiring options at tight end, either.

As far as the receiver who could step up as the top pass catcher behind McLaurin, Sims is one player who stands out. He started to emerge at the end of last season, finishing with 20 catches, 230 receiving yards and four touchdowns across the last four games. The key was that he received 36 targets during that stretch. Washington is probably going to have problems putting points on the board this season, so don’t expect Sims to rack up touchdowns in bunches over the course of 16 games. However, there is a path for him to receive 100 targets. Also, if anything should happen to McLaurin, then Sims would likely get all of the targets that he can handle. Don’t be surprised is Sims significantly outproduces whatever draft capital you spend to add him to your roster.
