My overall ranking might be too low on the No. 1 wide receiver who has now finished inside the top-three at his position in each of the last four years, but passing on a volume running back is hard to do. Brown is as consistent as they come, as he's now posted at least WR2 numbers in 57 of his last 77 games, which amounts to 74 percent of the time. The only wide receivers who were able to accomplish that in just one year (2017) were Deandre Hopkins and Michael Thomas. He's the No. 1 wide receiver and it's not even debatable at this point. He's like a fine wine that gets better with age. If you want to take him as the third player off the board, there's no issue with that. It's now a 47-game sample size, so we have plenty of data to analyze him against. Beckham Jr. has posted WR1 numbers in 48.9 percent of those games, which is simply ridiculous. Just how ridiculous? Well, the closest wide receiver to his totals over the last 15 years is Julio Jones, who has hit the WR1 mark in 40.4 percent of his games. The addition of Saquon Barkley is likely to take away some of his massive potential, but he's still a generational talent that is going to be heavily involved. Don't overthink it, he's good.
Staff Rankings
QB List
In my heart of hearts I really wanted DeAndre Hopkins to usurp Brown for the #1 spot but it just couldn't happen this year. The consensus #1 fantasy receiver for what has seemed like forever now (only 4 years), Brown combines a monstrous target share with truly elite route running and hands to possess the highest realistic weekly upside of any receiver. While James Washington attempts to fill the hole Martavis Bryant left, Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster will be sure to shoulder more of the target load for an explosive Steelers offense. The only downside on Brown lies in Ben Roethlisberger's more than questionable health, but Brown's upside trumps any concerns one would have long-term.At #6 is the second most famous Mr. Drama. Aside from his emotional tendencies, Beckham has nearly every physical attribute one could ask for in an elite fantasy receiver, and he has shown 100% health in his return from a broken leg/ankle. However, the circumstances in which he plays caps what could be #1 receiver upside. His quarterback, Eli Manning, has long been consistently mediocre, his team has the makings of a solid #2 in Sterling Shepard and a star tight end in Evan Engram to soak up more targets, and the team just drafted some guy named Saquan Barkley to give the team an actual running game. These factors possibly impacting his target share and efficiency, without even mentioning a shaky Giants O-line, hold Beckham back to the #6 spot.
Chet Gresham

Brown beats out the other top receivers due to his consistency and extremely high floor. Beckham and Hopkins have just as much upside as Brown, but they just haven't proven they have that consistency yet.Beckham Jr. probably has more upside than all of these guys, but a not-that-effective Eli Manning and a packed receiving corps is what knocks his ranking down. It is nice to have such a strong group of receivers and running backs to pick from for the first round.
Jody Smith
FantasyPros
No need to overthink this: Brown is about as safe a bet as there is in fantasy football. Worthy of No. 1 overall status, Brown is an excellent value anywhere after the No. 4 pick. Beckham enters the final year of his rookie deal primed to lead all NFL wideouts in touchdown grabs.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
There may not be a safer fantasy investment than Brown, who remarkably topped all receivers in PPR scoring for the fourth straight season despite missing two games. He has averaged 116 catches and 1,596 yards per season since 2013, when he finished a paltry third. For good measure he torched an elite Jaguars secondary (7-132-2 TDs) in a postseason shootout. Anyone who doesn't peg the future Hall of Famer as the undisputed top WR (and top-five overall choice in all formats) is probably is just eager to be a contrarian at any cost.Not even a fractured ankle can shove OBJ out of the first round. After all, he's averaging 106 receptions for 1,506 receiving yards and 12.9 TDs per 16 games. Despite the injury and a lingering contract dispute, he's too special to ignore near the Round 1/2 turn.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
He's been a top 3 WR for the past four years.With Shurmur as the Head Coach I expect Beckham to be getting allot of work from the slot, he moved Thielen and Diggs in and out of the slot interchangeably so I expect he'll do the same with Beckham and a combination of Shepard and Engram. This should provide Odell with somewhere in the range of 9-10 targets per game and get him away from blanket and/or bump and run coverage.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Brown averaged a league-leading 14.8 fantasy points per game among fantasy receivers and he should continue to be a fantasy star in 2018. OBJ averaged 12.3 fantasy points per game in the 4 games that he played, he should be back to 100% in 2018. There had been speculation that he will be traded, but he appears to be entering what may be his final year in New York.
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
He's still the best in the game until proven otherwise. Draft accordingly.A healthy Odell is a nightmare but contract woes and a regressing Eli curb him slightly for me
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
If you are looking for safety in the first round, you'll find much more of it in Brown than any of the running backs. He has been a top three wideout each of the past four seasons and is as durable as they come.You may want to draft Hopkins above Odell, but throughout their careers, Beckham has averaged an entire 2.5 fantasy points per game more. Even if you remove Osweiler, Beckham still crushes him. The biggest knock against Beckham is the injuries he has seen.

Continues to amaze with his work ethic outshining and outproducing more talented receivers league wideManning still his QB keeps him among the elite in fantasy, especially behind improved line play
