Fantasy football is one of the most exciting times for a lot of NFL fans and the biggest event leading up to the season is the fantasy draft. Depending on what type of league you might be in, you will at least have a little bit of a change as compared to the year before.

Fantasy is a little bit different because in most leagues, you will want to have some of the top players that do not have a lot of value such as running backs. Once players like Christian McCaffrey, Derrick Henry, and now Kyren Williams are off the board, fantasy players could be chasing after tier-two or tier-three backs as their main starters.

When it comes to the wide receiver position, it has become easy to get yourself a highly productive receiver without having to chase one early on in the draft. At the same time, if you are able to get Justin Jefferson, Ceedee Lamb, A.J. Brown or Tyreek Hill, then it obviously gives you an advantage each week as long as they produce.

Nathan Jahnke from Pro Football Focus came out with a Fantasy Football Rankings list where Nathan ranked the top 125 wide receivers for fantasy going into 2024. At No. 45 overall, Jahnke listed Buffalo Bills’ rookie wide receiver Keon Coleman as the 6th best rookie wideout behind Marvin Harrison Jr., Malik Nabers, Ladd McConkey, Rome Odunze and Brian Thomas Jr. 

According to Jahnke, Coleman is the best wide receiver option for fantasy for the Bills. He ranks ahead of Curtis Samuel (No. 53), Khalil Shakir (No. 64), and Marquez Valdes-Scantling (No. 116).

It is very interesting that Coleman is in the top 50 of this list, where he is ahead of players like Xavier Worthy, Tyler Lockett, and Mike Williams. However, it comes down to one simple factor and that is having Josh Allen throwing the ball to him. Allen has been the most dominating fantasy player in the last two seasons with both his arm and his legs. The Bills have a different receiving core than they did last season so it would not be surprising to see Coleman getting a great amount of targets per game which helps his fantasy stock.
