Henry Ruggs, Jerry Jeudy and CeeDee Lamb were the first three wide receivers chosen in last year’s draft. But as we near the end of their rookie seasons, it looks like other teams found better wide receivers later on.

Justin Jefferson, Chase Claypool and Tee Higgins, most notably. They all had much better rookie seasons than either Ruggs or Jeudy. With Lamb, it becomes more of an issue that can be debated; he’s had a good year for the Cowboys. And Brandon Aiyuk can also be part of this discussion. He had a very good initial season with the 49ers.

Attached are my top 100 at the wide receiver as we head into the new year. These are dynasty rankings, and at this point, I’m pretty much disregarding 2020 (with just one game left). So with injured wide receivers like Courtland Sutton, Odell Beckham and Parris Campbell, I’m trying to rank them where I think they’ll be when we get to August 1.

I’m assuming PPR scoring, and rookies are tagged with dots.

I left a number of veteran wide receivers out of my top 100, figuring they probably won’t even be back in 2021 (or will be nominal producers even if they return), including Larry Fitzgerald, DeSean Jackson, Julian Edelman, Golden Tate and Randall Cobb.
