The mix of the top receivers in Fantasy fluctuated quite a bit over the past five years (2019-2023):

  2023 2022 2021 2020 2019
Number of WR's over 300 points 3 6 5 3 1
Number of WR's over 200 points 33 23 27 24 25
Number of WR's over 75% consistency 13 15 14 12 12

We witnessed a unique year in 2023 as the over 200 points increased 43% from 23 to 33 receivers, while the over 300 points dropped 50%! In fact, the 35th ranked receiver in total points was Courtland Sutton at 193.20 points. The over 75% consistency dropped for the first time in 5 years from 15 to 13.

What does this mean for your drafting strategies in 2024? It shows that there are many more receivers scoring points to help your fantasy team, but how consistent they are is even more important. Calvin Ridley was 19th in total points but ranked 46th in consistency at 47%. Remember, there are top receivers who are very consistent, but there are always consistent receivers that can be drafted in the mid-late rounds that can help take your team to playoffs and Fantasy Championships.

Let’s look at those wide receivers ranked in their projected Tier for 2024 and show you their 2023 total points and consistency and where they ranked in those categories in 2023.

So, let’s start with the top tier of wide receivers.
