Fantasy Football Draft Targets: Marvin Harrison Jr., Drake London, Tank Dell, George Pickens

Wide receiver is one of the more coveted positions in fantasy football drafts. If you can get a guy with a heavy target share, yards after the catch (YAC) or reliable in the red zone, that is a recipe for fantasy football success. Winning your fantasy football draft at the wide receiver position is pivotal for season-long success. We’re going to look at a few fantasy football draft targets at the wide receiver position. Some of these pass-catchers hover near the top 10, but there are a few lower in the rankings that could surpass their average draft position (ADP). Here are four fantasy football draft targets at wide receiver.

Fantasy Football Draft Targets

(PPR ADP via FantasyPros)

Marvin Harrison Jr. (WR – ARI) | ADP: 13 (WR9)

Marvin Harrison Jr. could mirror Garrett Wilson and Puka Nacua — someone who immediately comes in and makes an impact. Besides Trey McBride, the receiving options are slim in Arizona. They went after Harrison Jr. to eat up Kyler Murray’s targets.

With his talent and usage, the floor will be in the top 15, but that ceiling is becoming the fourth rookie receiver to have 100 catches.

Drake London (WR – ATL) | ADP: 14 (WR10)

The ‘Free London’ campaign has worked. No longer will Arthur Smith hold down such a talent. Under Smith, this was a heavy-run offense that lacked quarterback talent since they parted with Matt Ryan.

New Falcons OC Zac Robinson helped develop the passing game with the Rams in the last few years. He once again gets to work with a veteran passer in Kirk Cousins. You hope Cousins is 100% coming off the Achilles tear because you saw how he elevated Justin Jefferson to being the league’s most decorated wide receiver. All the tools are there for London — size, hands; he just needs someone to get him the ball.

He also gets a prime schedule that is the fourth-easiest for wide receivers, according to last year’s opponents’ stats.

Tank Dell (WR – HOU) | ADP: 39 (WR25)

After his injury last season, we forgot about Tank Dell after what we saw from Nico Collins moving into the WR1 spot. Do not get it twisted; Tank Dell is the top guy in Houston. C.J. Stroud specifically told the Texans he wanted them to draft Dell.

You started to see that connection flourish after their bye week as Dell had three top-12 finishes. A healthy Dell could have a top-10 season.

George Pickens (WR – PIT) | ADP: 46 (WR29)

You look at Geroge Pickens’ rankings and you might be shaking your head as to why it’s so low given he caught for 1,000 yards. It was because of inconsistency that came at the quarterback position. Kenny Pickett, Mitch Trubisky and Mason Rudolph all had starts. None were impressive. For Pickens to get those numbers with that group is fantastic.

This season, he got an established veteran in Russell Wilson, and while his tenure in Denver was lackluster, he was still efficient and threw for 26 touchdowns and a 66.4% completion rate.

Pickens is one of the most explosive receivers in the league, as his 18.1 yards per reception was the best amongst qualified receivers. With Diontae Johnson gone, he moves into the WR1 role in an offense that should pass the ball more.
