Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs looks on before the start of a game against the Philadelphia Eagles at U.S. Bank Stadium.

Wide receivers can really be hit or miss, which is why one key strategy in fantasy drafting is to load up on wideouts that check off some key boxes: talent, opportunity (on their depth chart) and a history of production.

If you are looking to snag a WR in the first round (to buck what will be an obvious early run on RBs), picking one of the top contenders for offensive player of the year is a good start. According to Pickswise, Stefon Diggs and Devante Adams (both at +2000) lead the way for receivers in the award race. Calvin Ridley, DeAndre Hopkins and Tyreek Hill are not far behind at +2500.

Those five, however, are not the five we put atop our rankings. Youngsters Justin Jefferson and DK Metcalf, in our opinion, deserve to be in the conversation too.
