AFC East fantasy football ranking: Watching the ascention of WRs to a higher value than RBs shouldn’t have been a surprise.

Over the last decade NFL teams have transitioned from the featured running back to using platoon styles. That has left the value of RBs dropping while the addition of PPR has made WRs more valuable.

If there is one thing that is certain in the AFC East, it is that the WRs are stacked and could provide more value than many other teams in the NFL.

For these ranks, we are not going to use any statistical anomoly from ESPN but instead, common sense and like most fantasy rosters, you start more than one.

Stefon Diggs – Buffalo Bills

Diggs continues to impress and grow and is a good reason why Josh Allen has found his career take a turn for the better. Diggs is the top AFC East WR because we know that he is going to get his touches and because Allen relies upon him. Diggs scores points.

Tyreek Hill – Miami Dolphins

Will Hill have more value by the end of the year? Probably but Hill is going to see a lot of his targets go to other players. Miami has a lot of WRs on the roster that can start for other teams and they will all need to be involved. That is going to hurt Hill’s K.C. production lines but he is still a big target who is more likely to get you more TD points.

Jaylen Waddle – Miami Dolphins

If you weren’t watching Waddle last year then I’m not sure what you were watching. Waddle is going to pad your PPR stats and with Hill now on the roster, expect the yardage to go up as well as teams will not be able to stack against him.

Elijiah Moore – New York Jets

I didn’t want to go over to ESPN to see where Moore ranked but his 29th ranking among receivers makes me believe that my thoughts on Zach Wilson are accurate. Moore is a talented receiver but he is a mid-round receiver who will work well as a flext or WR3 on your roster.

DeVante Parker – New England

Parker will play his first season in the NFL not with the Dolphins but does he have any fantasy value? He didn’t provide much in Miami outside of a bye-week filler or a flex option so I wouldn’t put too much value in him with the Patriots on an offense who has big WR questions. Take him late and see what he can add to your team but if you are taking him in the mid-rounds, you are probably missing out on players that will actually help your team more than a week or two.
