The Top WRs To Draft in 2023

Christian Watson, Green Bay Packers

Many are still skeptical about Christian Watson‘s strong finish to his rookie year continuing into the 2023 season. Well, some of the advanced receiving metrics from his rookie campaign certainly include some of the symptoms of second-year breakout WRs.

Yards After Catch Per Reception: 6.7 (4th among WRs)
Average Depth of Target: 13.8 (12th)
Yards Per Route Run: 2.4 (12th)

Watson also happens to boast one of the most athletic WR profiles to come into the league over the past decade. Sure, the change under center means there could be a drop in efficiency, but his projected target share and upside as a big-play threat and yards-after-catch producer means he possesses a rare top-five upside at the position in the middle rounds.

Diontae Johnson, Pittsburgh Steelers

Fantasy managers have a bit of a sour taste in their mouths after Diontae Johnson’s zero-touchdown season in 2022. But that’s not what we should look at. That’s just an anomaly and it won’t happen again.

More Consensus Rankings: QB | RB | TE | K | D/ST 

Johnson once again saw an elite 27% target share and was targeted on 26.3% of his routes run. He is one of the best route runners in the league and a lock to be top 10 in targets. If Kenny Pickett takes a moderate step forward, Johnson could improve his efficiency and, just like 2021, be one of the best values in 2023 fantasy football drafts.

Zay Flowers, Baltimore Ravens

Zay Flowers is a vertical threat who ran every route from every position in the formation and won on all three levels of the field with his route-running savvy and playmaking ability after the catch during his days at Boston College.

Flowers’ versatility and explosiveness instantly give Baltimore’s passing offense the juice to capitalize on the multitude of deep-shot opportunities they’ll have when defenses load up to slow down the rushing attack.

New offensive coordinator Todd Monken and former league MVP QB Lamar Jackson have both had very positive things to say about Flowers during training camp and the preseason.
If the Ravens throw the ball far more often than they have over the past four seasons, then there’s going to be a receiver to emerge from this group as a top-25 fantasy WR.

If you want to keep waiting on the impending Rashod Bateman breakout season that is entering its third year while he battles a lingering foot issue — or hold onto the fantasy glory days of Odell Beckham Jr. while ignoring both of their durability concerns — then be my guest.

My money is on Flowers being the highest-scoring fantasy WR in Baltimore this season.
