The top rated wide receiver in the 2012 NFL Draft is Justin Blackmon. He’s big, athletic and has a great pair of hands. Many NFL draft experts compare him to a better version of Dez Bryant. Considering that Bryant has had a successful fantasy football career to date, that should bode well for Justin Blackmon.
That said, as with most rookie wide receivers, pay special attention to which team drafts him. If he lands on a team with a bad quarterback, you should think twice before drafting him. However, if he’s paired with a great QB, he could become a top 15 fantasy football wide receiver for the 2012 NFL season.
