    It’s time to take an early look at the top 12 dynasty Wide Receivers for next season.
    Read on to see the 2024 Dynasty Rankings!


    Elite wide receivers are absolute game-changers for dynasty. Game changers. Not only do they offer the best opportunities to score PPR points, but they also tend to have longer careers compared to running backs. They hold their value. That is why, as the regular season comes to a close, you should be investing in these top 12 wide receivers through startups or trading. Build your team around these guys and you won't regret it. Now let's get right to my top 12 dynasty wide receivers!

    12) Jaxon Smith-Njigba - Seattle Seahawks

    Selected in the first round, Njigba's rookie season was limited by playing behind DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett. If Seattle decides to part ways with Lockett, freeing up a substantial amount of cap space—a move they are likely to make—it could open up significant opportunities for Njigba to make a more substantial impact in his second season. While he has predominantly been utilized in the slot this year, I am eager to see how the Seahawks can diversify his usage, akin to how the Cowboys have done with Lamb.

    11) Drake London - Atlanta Falcons

    Poor playcalling and an unstable quarterback situation have held London back for far too long. With the firing of Arthur Smith, there's renewed optimism for schemes that focus on utilizing the team's playmakers more effectively. London was a top-10 pick but hasn't been utilized to his ability whatsoever. Even still he's pacing 1k receiving yards in his sophomore year. With the 8th draft pick, the Falcons have the opportunity to secure talents like Michael Penix, Jayden Daniels, or J.J. McCarthy, and there are even speculations about a potential trade for the 1 overall prospect, QB Caleb Williams.

    Any of these options would be an upgrade over the previous round-about rotation of Desmond Ridder and Taylor Heinicke. Having offensive talents like London, Pitts, and Bijan as building blocks, I anticipate the Falcons to align all their pieces this offseason, paving the way for a complete breakout from London in 2024.

    10) Tyreek Hill - Miami Dolphins

    Ok. So I know I said building a team around young talent is imperative to building a dominant dynasty team, but THE CHEETAH is different. Despite dealing with an ankle injury, he concluded the regular season with nearly 1,800 receiving yards. Additionally, he shared the top spot with Mike Evans for the most receiving touchdowns and was 2nd in fantasy points among receivers, as indicated by our Fantasy Finishes Tool.

    Although Hill will be entering 2024 at the age of 29, he's one of the elites that's going to continue to ball out. Mike McDaniel has electrified this offense with his big-play calling, something Tyreek will continue to capitalize on. Make that bet.

    9) Brandon Aiyuk - San Francisco 49ers

    Aiyukennn! Dude just put up over 1,300 yards in an offense loaded with competition. He posted a 92.3 PFF receiving grade that was only topped by 1 receiver, Hill. Often overlooked by the abundance of talent on the 49ers, Aiyuk is as explosively as skilled a route runner as the best in the league. His ability to get open down the stretch, break ankles, and capitalize on big plays in this perfect system is the reason why he's climbed up my dynasty WR rankings.

    8) Chris Olave - New Orleans Saints

    Welp... that wasn't the sophomore breakout we all were hoping for. Watching the Saints struggle to move the ball every week with Derek Carr at the helm, Olave still commanded a high target share, 37.7% of the team's air yards, with 87 receptions for 1,123 yards. Did you see that insane catch he made last week for a touchdown against the Falcons? That grab should win the catch of the year. When he gets an upgrade at QB, the sky's the limit. Olave the opportunity.

    7) Puka Nacua - Los Angeles Rams

    Puka was 4th in receiving yards in his rookie year. (1,486 yards) WHO IS THIS KID? Drafted super late and overlooked, he became McVay's go-to player throughout the season. Puka exemplifies grit and determination, playing through injuries while commanding targets alongside elite playmaker Kupp. He has undoubtedly captured the hearts of those who took a chance on him in rookie drafts or off waivers.

    As the youngest receiver in my top 12, I anticipate even greater things for Puka in his sophomore year, with a full offseason to grow and learn. I've put trade offers out in hopes owners may see this as a fluke or a one-off scenario due to the Cooper Kupp injury. I'm buying.

    6) Garrett Wilson - New York Jets

    Look, I know the fantasy production hasn't been there for Wilson, but I don't know a single soul who could have elite production with the QBs Wilson has attempting to throw passes his way. Next year we should finally see him with Aaron Rodgers at the helm. Prospected to be an elite talent in the NFL, has great hands, super aggressive, he just needs the tools to get it done. Next year we should see his ascendance into that elite tier. At only 23 years old, I'm excited about his future in the NFL.

    5) A.J. Brown - Philidelphia Eagles

    Even though Brown hasn't shown his ability to produce on the same level as the younger guys ahead of him for an entire season, his big-play upside can't keep him out of the top 5. At 27 years old, he finished his 2nd season with over 1,400 receiving yards. 21 of those receptions were for over 20 yards this season. He's got the stability of both a good QB with Jalen Hurts and a competitive organization with the Philadelphia Eagles.

    4) Amon-Ra St. Brown - Detroit Lions

    The Sun God. The only player with nine games of 100+ receiving yards this season, making him the 1st Lion to do so since Calvin Johnson in 2012. He finished the season as a wide receiver 3, averaging just over 20 fantasy points per game. I don't have to sell you on St. Brown. If you've seen him play, you know what an elite playmaker Amonara is in this Detroit offense. He's got a great connection with Jared Goff that continues to grow, and he's only 24 years old. Easily a top 5 receiver, and one of the top 12 dynasty wide receivers, for years to come.

    3) Ja'Marr Chase - Cincinnati Bengals

    Chase's bond with college teammate QB Joe Burrow has been extraordinary since their LSU days, consistently linking up on absolute bombs season after season. Unfortunately, Burrow's season was derailed by injury, posing a significant loss to the Bengals' offense overall. Chase was also dealing with a shoulder injury down the stretch. Still, he put up his first 100-reception season in the NFL.

    We all know what Chase and Burrow do together when healthy, which puts him in a great position to remain among the league's most efficient playmakers for years to come.

    2) CeeDee Lamb - Dallas Cowboys

    Boasting six top 5 finishes this season, CeeDee Lamb emerges as a PPR powerhouse. He dominated the league among receivers, leading in both targets (181) and receptions (131), falling just shy of Tyreek Hill's reception yard total (Lamb's 1749 compared to Hill's 1799). The numbers don't lie, and the eyes don't either. The exceptional 92-yard touchdown pass from Dak against the Lions was truly remarkable. Lamb was the YAC king with 680 yards after the catch, the most from any receiver.

    With each passing season, the bond between him and Dak strengthens, signaling CeeDee's ascent into his prime years of delivering elite-level production. I'm in.

    1) Justin Jefferson - Minnesota Vikings

    Even in a down year facing injuries and subpar quarterback play, JJ somehow found a way to post his fourth straight 1,000-yard season. In week 18 he reminded us exactly why he deserves the top spot, with 12 catches for 192 yards and a touchdown in the Vikings' loss. Jefferson is still an elite asset and is still the overall WR1 going into the off-season. Let's not forget what he did his first three seasons just because of this down fantasy year succumbed to injury.

    Kirk Cousins has repeatedly expressed his desire to conclude his career with the Vikings, stating his willingness to accept a "hometown discount" to remain with the team. If a manager in your league is down on him, this would be the time to pounce.

    I hope my top 12 dynasty Wide Receivers rankings give you the insights you need to understand the potential of each player. Build your squad around these ballers, and you'll be laying the foundation for long-term success. It's time to roll up our sleeves and craft some championship-worthy teams!
