The start of the warm weather months means beaches, sun tans and hanging out by the pool! It also means the beginning stages of the fantasy football draft season and of course ... rankings!

Here are my initial fantasy football rankings for every position, and now it's time to dig a little bit deeper into each fantasy lineup position.

Wide receiver is now widely considered the most important position in fantasy football, so you'll see more players at the position being drafted in the top 50 than ever before. So let's look at the wide receiver rankings, as well as who some of the top values and busts are for 2024.

Biggest Values by ADP

Michael Pittman Jr. (Ranked WR16, ADP WR24)

Pittman Jr. had a career season in 2023, posting 109 catches and over 1,100 yards to finish as the WR13. Sure, the Colts added Adonai Mitchell in the draft, but I don't think his presence means a huge decrease in fantasy points. I'd gladly take him as a No. 2 fantasy wideout in 2024.

DK Metcalf (Ranked WR16, ADP WR23)

Metcalf posted over 1,100 yards and eight touchdowns last season, and he did it in 16 games. I can see him at least duplicating those totals under new offensive coordinator Ryan Grubb, who led a pass-laden attack at the University of Washington. I like DK as a third-round WR2.

Ladd McConkey (Ranked WR29, ADP WR42)

I'm probably higher than most on McConkey, but he's as good a bet as any to lead the Chargers in targets and fantasy points among wideouts with Keenan Allen and Mike Williams gone. I'm not a huge fan of Quentin Johnston either, so I'll take McConkey as a No. 3 WR or flex starter.

Biggest Risks by ADP

Tank Dell (Ranked WR34, ADP WR26)

Dell is a talented player who was on the verge of a breakout season before he injured his knee, but things have changed in Houston. Most notably, the team acquired veteran Stefon Diggs in a trade. With Nico Collins also in the offense, that drops Dell out of the top 30 wideouts for me.

Chris Godwin (Ranked WR39, ADP WR35)

There isn't a huge gap between my ranking and ADP, but it's notable enough to mention. Did you know that Godwin's touchdown totals have decreased in five straight years, and he scored just twice last season? And that was in a solid season from Baker Mayfield. I prefer Godwin as a WR4.

Xavier Worthy (Ranked WR48, ADP WR36)

Worthy is a speedy, exciting player who could be a great fit in Kansas City, but he's not Tyreek Hill! In fact, he might not be better than the fourth option in the passing game for Patrick Mahomes behind Travis Kelce, Rashee Rice and Marquise Brown. Thus, I have him ranked much lower.
