Look for him to lead the Sun Belt in receiving again as he finishes his college career.

Strength Of Schedule: 112

Fantasy Playoffs: @ Louisiana Laffayette, @ App St, vs Georgia

2017 Stats: 74 rec, 1121 rec yards & 8 TD[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”4625″ img_size=”large” title=”#14 KeeSean Johnson”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”45px”][vc_column_text]KeeSean Johnson, from Fresno St, will be looking to improve on his 1013 yard and 8 TD 2017 season. And as the #1 WR in a potent Bulldog offense that is a definite possibility.

Strength Of Schedule: 76

Fantasy Playoffs: @ Boise St, vs San Diego St, vs San Jose St

2017 Stats: 77 rec, 1013 rec yards & 8 TD[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”4624″ img_size=”large” title=”#13 Teddy Veal”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”45px”][vc_column_text]Teddy Veal was only 50 receiving yards short of 1000 in 2017. And a favorable schedule will help him in this season’s campaign. Veal should finish with at least 1000 yards and 10+ TDs.

Strength Of Schedule: 102

Fantasy Playoffs: vs Rice, @ Southern Miss, vs Western Kentucky

2017 Stats: 74 rec, 950 rec yards & 7 TD[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”4623″ img_size=”large” title=”#12 Devin Butler”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”45px”][vc_column_text]Devin Butler put up modest stats, as the 3rd WR in Syracuse’s offense, last season with 327 yards and 1 TD. But those numbers should skyrocket this season as he takes over the #1 spot. Following in the footsteps of Amba Etta-Tawo & Steve Ismael.

Strength Of Schedule: 36

Fantasy Playoffs: vs Louisville, @ Notre Dame, @ Boston College

2017 Stats: 33 rec, 327 rec yards & 1 TD[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”4622″ img_size=”large” title=”#11 Gary Jennings”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”45px”][vc_column_text]Gary Jennings was great in West Virginia’s explosive offense last season. The Mountaineers almost managing to put 3 players over 1000 yards receiving (Jennings 1096 yards, Ka’Raun White 1004 yards & David Sills 980). Look for more of the same this season from Jennings and he definitely should improve on the 1 TD he had in 2017.

Strength Of Schedule: 10

Fantasy Playoffs: vs TCU, @ Oklahoma St, vs Oklahoma

2017 Stats: 97 rec, 1096 rec yards & 1 TD[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”4621″ img_size=”large” title=”#10 Andy Isabella”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”45px”][vc_column_text]UMass’ defense was not very good last year, giving up 31.8 ppg, and does not look to have improved much this season. But that is great for Senior WR Andy Isabella since the Minutemen will have to pass to keep up. Look for him to go over 1000 yards and 10+ TDs

Strength Of Schedule: 98

Fantasy Playoffs: vs BYU, @ Georgia, BYE

2017 Stats: 60 rec, 980 rec yards & 9 TD[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”4620″ img_size=”large” title=”#9 Cody Thompson”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”45px”][vc_column_text]Cody Thompson started last season with a bang. Putting up 4 straight 100+ yards games before a broken leg took him out for the rest of the year. He should definitely be able to pick up where he left off and finish with more than 1000 yards.

Strength Of Schedule: 107

Fantasy Playoffs: @ Northern Illinois, @ Kent St, vs Central Michigan

2017 Stats: 28 rec, 537 rec yards & 4 TD[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”4619″ img_size=”large” title=”#8 Kelvin Harmon”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”45px”][vc_column_text]The NC State Wolfpack lost more than 130 targets when Jaylen Samuels and Nyheim Hines moved on to the NFL. And a big chunk of those should go to Junior Kelvin Harmon. He had 6 games of more than 100 yards in 2017 and should be able to surpass that total in 2018.

Strength Of Schedule: 51

Fantasy Playoffs: vs Wake Forrest, @ Louisville, @ North Carolina

2017 Stats: 69 rec, 1017 rec yards & 4 TD[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”4618″ img_size=”large” title=”#7 Ty Lee”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”45px”][vc_column_text]Ty Lee was not quite able to reach 1000 yards last season (955). But with QB Brett Stockstill returning for his Senior season, and former #1 WR Richie James now playing in the NFL, he should easily finish with 1000+ yards and 10+ TDs.

Strength Of Schedule: 95

Fantasy Playoffs: @ UTEP, @ Kentucky, vs UAB

2017 Stats: 79 rec, 955 rec yards & 5 TD[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”4590″ img_size=”large” title=”#6 Trevon Brown”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”45px”][vc_column_text]Trevon Brown had 1000+ yards and 7 TDs for East Carolina in 2017. Those numbers should go up as Brown tries to follow in the footsteps of Zay Jones and Justin Hardy.

Strength Of Schedule: 71

Fantasy Playoffs: @ Tulane, vs Conneticut, @ Cincinnati

2017 Stats:  60 rec, 1069 rec yards & 7 TD[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”4587″ img_size=”large” title=”#5 T.J. Vasher”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”45px”][vc_column_text]The Texas Tech offense always produces top end WRs and this year it should be TJ Vasher. Look for him to easily surpass the 545 yards and 6 TDs from 2017…possibly more than double them.

Strength Of Schedule: 16

Fantasy Playoffs: vs Texas, @ Kansas St, vs Baylor

2017 Stats: 29 rec, 545 rec yards & 6 TD[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”4586″ img_size=”large” title=”#4 N’Keal Harry”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”45px”][vc_column_text]N’Keal Harry is one of the best WR in the country. He should not have any trouble going over 1000 receiving yards and 10+ TDs this season. As long a new coach Herm Edwards remembers to keep throwing Harry the ball.

Strength Of Schedule: 11

Fantasy Playoffs: vs UCLA, @ Oregon, @ Arizona

2017 Stats: 82 rec, 1142 rec yards & 8 TD[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”4585″ img_size=”large” title=”#3 A.J. Brown”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”45px”][vc_column_text]AJ Brown was spectacular last season, putting up six 100 yard games (5 of those over 150 yards). Not even a change at QB slowed him down. Look for Brown to continue to thrive this season.

Strength Of Schedule: 47

Fantasy Playoffs: @ Texas A&M, @ Vanderbilt, vs Mississippi St

2017 Stats: 75 rec, 1252 rec yards & 11 TD[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”4584″ img_size=”large” title=”#2 Anthony Johnson”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”45px”][vc_column_text]Anthony Johnson burst onto the CFF scene in 2017 with 1300+ yards and 14 TDs. He will have a chance to improve on those numbers, this year, as Buffalo’s offense will run through him.

Strength Of Schedule: 117

Fantasy Playoffs: vs Kent St, @ Ohio, @ Bowling Green

2017 Stats: 76 rec, 1356 rec yards & 14TD[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”4582″ img_size=”large” title=”#1 David Sills”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”45px”][vc_column_text]David Sills originally started college at QB, but found his calling at WR. In 2017 the 6’ 4” senior lead the nation with 18 receiving TDs. Look for more of the same this season as Sills and Will Grier lead the high powered West Virginia offense.

Strength Of Schedule: 10

Fantasy Playoffs: vs TCU, @ Oklahoma St, vs Oklahoma

2017 Stats:  60rec, 980 rec yards & 18 TD[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”4391″ img_size=”large” title=”John Laub “][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2”][vc_column_text]These rankings are provided by the Gridiron Scholar.
