NFL 2018: Top 12 0.5 PPR NFL Fantasy Wide Receivers
Wide Receivers are vital in PPR leagues for obvious reasons. Their catching! If you didn't know, PPR stands for 'Point per Reception'. Here I take a look at my top 12 ranked receivers for the coming season.
#12. TY Hilton - Indianapolis Colts - 2017 total = 147.1
Now this pick could easily change, the closer we get to the NFL season. It all depends on Andrew Lucks' health and if he will be ready to play football at the beginning of the season. Last season, was a down season for Hilton. His 966 receiving yards were the fewest he's had in a season since his rookie year, and way down on the previous seasons total of 1448 yards, which led the league.
Hilton only caught 57 passes, which ranked at 36th among all WR's. That's not exactly the type of productivity you are expecting from the usually reliable Hilton. This was mainly due to Hilton's rapport with Jacoby Brissett being nowhere near as good as when he's paired with Luck. When he last played with Luck in the 2016 season he set a career high in receiving yards and receptions. I fully expect him to set those sorts of figures again if Andrew Luck returns.
