NFL Best Ball 2023 Rankings: Top 20 Wide Receivers
WR3 Cooper Kupp
Cooper Kupp is poised for a big year in 2023 after a shortened 2022 season due to injury. In just 9 games, Kupp received 98 targets and caught 6 touchdowns, showcasing his ability to produce even with limited playing time. With a current ADP of 5.8 in NFL Best Ball drafts, Kupp is being valued as an elite receiver, and he has the potential to live up to that expectation.
Matthew Stafford, who has a career touchdown percentage of 4.7%, will continue to be Kupp’s quarterback, which bodes well for his production. Stafford peppered Kupp with targets in 2021 with a massive total of 191 targets. The Los Angeles Rams attempted 531 passes in 2022, and Kupp should continue to receive a massive market share of targets, likely over 30%. While he did miss time with a high ankle sprain, reports out of Rams camp are positive regarding his health. With his proven talent and favorable situation, Kupp has the potential to be a top receiver in fantasy football in 2023.
Amon-Ra St. Brown is coming off a strong 2022 with the Detroit Lions, where he saw a whopping 146 targets and hauled in 6 touchdowns. As a result, he has a current ADP of 15.7 in NFL Best Ball drafts. While Jared Goff has a career touchdown percentage of 4.4%, he has shown a willingness to target his top receivers heavily, and the Lions attempted 588 passes in 2022. This bodes well for St. Brown’s continued involvement in the offense.
As the clear WR1 for the Lions, St. Brown should see a market share of 25% or more this season. Additionally, with Jameson Williams set to miss time due to a gambling suspension, there will be even more targets available for St. Brown to gobble up.
WR17 Mike Williams
Mike Williams is a player with high upside in fantasy football. Despite missing four games last season, Williams still received 93 targets and caught four touchdowns. His current ADP in NFL Best Ball drafts is 44.5, indicating that many fantasy managers believe in his potential.
Playing alongside quarterback Justin Herbert, who has a career touchdown percentage of 4.8%, Williams has the opportunity to produce big numbers in a pass-heavy offense. In 2022, the Chargers attempted 711 passes, and Williams saw an average depth of target (ADOT) of 12.0. These factors combined make Williams a high-upside receiver who can potentially score 30+ points in any given week, making him a valuable asset in large-field NFL Best Ball tournaments.
