We have reached the ocean floor of our wide receiver ranking. It is dark, empty, and bleak down here. There are some treasures to be found on the sea bed but you are more likely to find ghosts and eerie creatures. Many of these receivers are former 1st and 2nd round draft picks who never panned out. We also have players with good size, but bad speed, or good speed and bad size. This is not a new flavor of ice cream for me. I have explored these depths for decades, and am familiar with the bends, as it is my favorite Radiohead album. I’ll save you the troubles of excavating these shipwrecked players on your own. Let’s dodge Davy Jones’ locker and try to unearth some fantasy fortunes.

If you are interested in my other wide receiver rankings they can be found here: Top 120 Wide Receivers for 2022 Fantasy Football Dynasty LeaguesTop 80 Wide Receivers for 2022 Dynasty Fantasy FootballTop 40 Wide Receivers for 2022 Dynasty Fantasy Football


121. Desean Jackson | 35 | Raiders – Hard to believe it’s been 18 years since Desean Jackson backflipped his way into our hearts at the high school Army All-American game. The kid out of Cal began his NFL career in Philadelphia as a second-round selection in the 2008 draft. Desean went on to accumulate 11,110 yards receiving and 66 career Touchdowns. Jackson ran a 4.35 at the 2008combine and he can still get behind NFL defenses averaging 22 yards per section in 2021. The three-time Pro Bowler’s big-play ability means he doesn’t have to see 100 targets to net fantasy points. I don’t know if he will play in 2022, but if he does, you cannot pass up a 10,000-yard receiver this late in the draft.


122. DeMarcus Robinson | 27 | Chiefs – At 6, 1″ 200 lbs, Robinson offers a larger body in the Kansas City WR room. The former 4th round selection from Florida had back-to-back 400+ yard receiving seasons in 2019 and 2020. I’d rather pop his teammate Byron Pringle, but Robison offers a nice consolation prize.


123. Jaelon Darden | 23 | Buccaneers – The 4th round selection of the 2021 draft didn’t get see much action in 2021 only catching 6 passes for a mere 43 yards. The little guy can run though, and Bryon Leftwich likes to call downfield passing plays. Darden is a longshot that might pay off for a few boom or bust performances.


124. Breshad Perriman | 28 | Buccaneers – former 1st round has great size (6′, 2″ 215lbs.) and speed (4.25 40) to be WR1. Another player whose production has not matched his measurables. The former UCF star is an elite athlete, and he has undeniable potential. At this stage of the draft, Perriman is a great investment.


125. Lynn Bowden Jr. | 24 | Dolphins – After putting up monster numbers at Kentucky Bowden was selected 80th in the 2020 draft (3rd round). Character issues may be a concern, which may have been one of the reasons the Raiders traded their brand new playmaker to the Dolphins for a future 4th round pick before he took a snap in silver a black. 31 targets and 4 rushing attempts in the final four games of the 2020 season. He is a high ceiling low floor lottery ticket that makes a lot of sense this late in the draft.


126. Mike Strachan | 24 | Colts – He was a darling of training camp and I wish the Colts would have put him on display for the world to love in 2021. 6′ 5″ 224lbs this guy has all the features of a WR1. I don’t understand why the Colts don’t line him up with Pittman and Allie-Cox. The run or pass out of that lineup on any play. I feel bad for Colts fans, it must be frustrating having it all but a competent QB, as the Bears fan rolls their eyes. Draft him in a start-up. Trade for him in an existing league. The price should be low and the odds are in your favor.


127. Lil’ Jordan Humphrey | 24 | Saints – “But don’t let my name fool you! In real life, I’m very big.” This manly man in tight TIGHT tights measures in at 6, 4′ 225 lbs. He played his college ball for the Longhorns. Humphery got on the field for 10 games as a true freshman, an impressive feat on a blue blood program. LJH eventually put up some prodigious numbers in his junior season – 86 catches for 1,100 yards and 9 TDs. After Lil’ Jordan’s big year he left college early to enter the NFL draft. At the combine, Humphery ran a 4.78 40 yard dash and went undrafted. Big guys are typically good blockers and Humphrey is a good red-zone target.



128. Marquez Stevenson | 23 | Bills – 6th round pick in 2021. From Houston with rocket burners, Stevenson ran an elite three-cone time (6.46 seconds). Marquez is a smaller wideout at 5′, 10″, 180lbs. He has blazing speed and can make big plays happen. It won’t be easy to crack the two-deep in the Buffalo WR room, but if the former cougar gets on the field, be ready to pounce.


129. Anthony Miller | 27 | Steelers – I liked Miller when he was drafted in the 2nd round (51st overall) by the Bears in 2018. Miller was a walk-on at Memphis but became their best player and a spirited team leader. He is a tough competitor who plays with a chip on his shoulder. Anthony put up decent production 2018 through 2020 totaling 1,564 yards 11 TDs on 134 receptions during the three years.


130. Keelan Cole | 28 | Jets – Totaled 1,091 yard receiving on 83 receptions over the last two seasons. A fluid 6′, 1″ 194 pounder with a vast catch radius. The small school longshot from Kentucky Wesleyan will be a free agent in 2022.


131. Dazz Newsome | 22 | Bears – The Bears 6th round pick in 2021. This playmaker from North Carolina took six punts and returned them for 75 yards in his rookie season. A 5′, 10″ 185lbs burner who switched from defensive back to wide receiver early in his college career. Dazz will look to get more involved in the Bears offense in 2022.


132. Dede Westbrook | 28 | Vikings – After totaling 132 receptions and 1,377 yards over the 2018 and 2019 seasons Westbrook disappeared in 2020. He began the season 4th on the depth chart and a torn ACL in week seven ended his season. Dede signed with the Vikings for 2021, but the ACL injury delayed his start to the season. K.J. Osborn stepped in to fill the void and the Vikings never looked back. A free agent in 2022, the former Biletnikoff Award winner is a player to follow.


133. Dez Fitzpatrick | 24 | Titans – The Titans traded picks 126 (4th), 166 (5th), and 232 (7th round) to the Panthers in exchange for Carolina’s 109 (4th) and took Dez Fitzpatrick. Tennessee saw something they liked in him. Dez has NFL measurables 6,2″ 210lbs 4.46 forty-yard dash, and he was a four-star recruit coming out of high school, so he has a strong pedigree. A name to know in 2022.


134. Randall Cobb | 31| Packers – Back for the pack in 2021. Randall has cobbler together a solid NFL career built on 10,324 total yards over his 11-year career. A 2nd round pick out of Kentucky in 2013, Cobb may have the lowest ceiling on this list, but arguably the highest floor.


135. Miles Boykin | 25 | Ravens – A big-bodied receiver checking in at 6′, 4″ 220lbs. This 2019 3rd round pick (93rd overall) from Notre Dame is a good red-zone target (4 TD on 19 receptions in 2020). The burly Boykin ran a brisk 4.42 40-yard dash and bounced his way to 43 inch vertical. Miles is a super athlete and a potential mismatch on the outside. A high ceiling player on which to take a flier.


136. Freddie Swain | 23 | Seahawks – 6th round pick in 2020, this former Florida Gator measures in at 6-foot 200lbs. Swain returned 22 punts for 189 yards in 2021. He added 343 yards receiving and four TDs on 25 catches. The multi-faceted athlete even tacked on five rushes for 32 yards. A versatile playmaker who should see an increased role in 2022.


137. Keke Coutee | 25 | Jets – In first grade, I was kissed by Phoebe Arnold and caught an advanced case of Coutees. Mercilessly teased and relegated to recesses spent playing with girls, it was the worst week of my six-year-old life. Fortunately, I was able to recover and become the red-blooded American male writing fantasy excerpts for you.
Keke Coutee is a 5′, 11″ 180 speedster with an expansive catch radius. The former Texas Tech Red Raider was a 4th round pick (103rd overall) in 2018. Coutee caught 33 passes for 400 yards and 3 TDs in 8 games played. Limited has been the primary issue for Coutee. Only 25 games played in 4 NFL seasons. Keke will be in the final year of his contract in 2022.


138. Kalif Raymond | 27 | Lions – The five-year veteran receiver on his fourth NFL team tallied 48 receptions for 576 yards and four TDs in 2021. Kalif is a squatty 5′, 8″ 180 lbs. slot receiver. He was the closest thing to a professional NFL wideout on the Lions roster to begin the season. The emergence of Quintez Cephus and Amon-Ra St. Brown coupled with the return of Josh Reynolds make Raymond dispensable. A free agent in 2022, the hard-working slot receiver will look for his 5th team in his 6th season.


139. Ben Skowronek | 24 | Rams – 6′, 3″ 224lbs. an ideal size for an outside WR. 7th round selection in 2021 out of Notre Dame. The golden domer had a couple of big drops that hurt his case to play. Converting 20 targets into a mere 11 receptions didn’t help either. The coaches like him and he has the size, but a player drafted 249th overall can ill-afford dropped passes.


140. Cam Simms | 26 | Commanders – A 6′, 5′ 220lbs. undrafted free agent from Alabama. The big guy registered 32 catches for 477 yards in 2020. Simms has the size but lacks the speed to gain separation from defenders. Could be an interesting player in 2022.


141. Dante Pettis | 26 | Giants – He’s a former 2nd round pick (44th overall) Pettis has now accrued 16 targets and 10 catches for 82 yards and a TD in the last two weeks. Standing at 6′, 1″ 195 lbs. Pettis has a lithe athletic build and has had a history of issues with press coverage. If he can escape press coverage, he is a good downfield threat, but that’s a monumental “if”. A free agent in 2022, Dante is running out of chances.


142. Andy Isabella | 25 | Cardinals – 2nd round pick (62nd overall) in 2019 out of UMass. The runty (5′, 9″ 188lbs.) has provided little production (426 and 3 TDs) in his 3 year NFL career. Andy has plenty of speed evidenced by his 4.31 40-yard dash at the 2019 combine. Isabella had an incredible senior year at UMass with 102 catches, 1698 yards receiving, and 14 Touchdowns in Mark Whipple’s offense. Coach Whip tends to find a playmaker and feed them the ball. Andy Isabella was his playmaker at UMass. 2021 Belitnikoff Award winner Jordan Addison was his guy at Pitt. Watch for Addison in the 2023 draft, you’d much rather have him than Isabella, or anyone on this list.


143. John Ross | 27 | Giants – The former Washington Huskie was the 9th overall selection in the 2019 draft. He of the 4.22 40-yard dash never lived up to the lofty expectations. Ross must improve on the 43% completion rate on passes thrown his way. There’s just no reason for an NFL offense to throw passes to a player with that low of a success rate. John is a big-play guy who averaged over 20 yards per catch in 2021. He won’t have to catch many passes to score nig fantasy points. The speedster has a 500+ yard season in 2019 when he averaged over 18 yards per catch. A free agent in 2022.


144. Shi Smith | 23 | Panthers – The Carolina kid was drafted out of South Carolina in the 6th round of the 2021 draft. Saw more playing time at the end of the season. 3 catch, 86 yard game on the day after Christmas. 5′, 10 180lbs with good receiving skills and a 4.43 40-yard dash, Could be a strong slot receiver for the Panthers.


145. Collin Johnson | 24 | Giants – I was surprised the WR needy Jacksonville Jaguars let him go last season, but that was just one of the many surprising (nonsensical) moves made by Urban Meyer’s Jaguars. Collin is an enormous (6′, 6″ 225 lbs) former Texas Longhorn. He lacks top-end speed and that limits his potential, but Johnson could carve out a role as a red-zone target.


146. Chris Conley | 29 | Texans – Conley measures in at 6′, 3″ 205lbs. He was a 3rd round pick (76th overall) out of Georgia in the 2015 draft. The former Bulldog’s best season came in 2019 when he had 47 catches for 775 yards receiving. The 7-year veteran wideout will be a free agent in 2022.


147. Antonio Gandy-Golden | 23 | Commanders – A 4th round pick in 2020, AGG is ranked in the top 160 Wide Receivers for Dynasty Fantasy Football 2022 with no production. All measurables (6′, 4″ 223lbs.) at this point in his NFL career, the Liberty product had one catch in 2020 and spent 2021 on the practice squad. He signed a reserves contract and will return to the Commanders with much to prove in 2022.


148. Stanley Morgan Jr. | 25 | Bengals – Undrafted free agent from Nebraska, the hard-working Husker has carved a niche on special teams as one of the better gunners in the league. Stanley is a competitive player who was a great leader at Nebraska in the locker room and the record books. The Louisiana native holds the Huskers record for receiving yards (2,747 yards) and receptions (189). Nasty is the perfect way to describe the selfless Stanley’s blocking style. Former head coach Scott Frost once described Morgan Jr. as the type of guy who keeps a locker room of equipment in the trunk of his car, because he always wants to compete, no matter what sport is being played. If this guy finds his way on the field, he could be a nice target for Joe Burrow.


149. J.J. Arcega-Whiteside | 25 | Eagles – His basketball bloodlines and body (6′, 2″ 225lbs) had the look of a starting outside receiver in the NFL, and that is probably why Philadelphia selected him in the 2nd round (57th overall) of the 2019 draft. Whiteside is not an elite athlete and he was unable to gain separation from NFL defensive backs. 16 catches and three NFL seasons later, JJAW is another botched WR selection in Philly.


150. Cornell Powell | 24 | Chiefs – Cornell Powell (6 foot tall 210lbs) has as much, if not more raw talent than any player on this list. He also has a great situation. QBs and offenses don’t get much better than Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs. Powell is 6 foot tall and weighs 210 lbs which is a good frame for an NFL wideout. He ran a 4.47 40-yard dash, so he has NFL speed. What I like most about Powell is his ability to make a catch in traffic while being hit. He had many of such receptions throughout if college career. This is a purely speculative ranking, but this 5th round rookie from Clemson will be more than worth the investment if he ever gets an opportunity.


151. Marquise Goodwin | 31 | Bears – Olympic level speed is the calling card for Marquise Goodwin. The former Texas Longhorn was drafted in 3rd round (78th overall) of the 2013 draft. He’s been little more than a deep threat in his 8-year NFL career (Goodwin opted out of the 2020 season), but he did have a 962-yard receiving season back in 2017. A free agent in 2022, expect an NFL team to pick up the veteran in hopes of keeping opposing safeties out of the box.


152. Travis Fulgham | 26 | Broncos – The former 6th round selection from Old Dominion totaled 539 yards receiving for the Eagles in 2020, but Philly placed him on the practice squad in 2021. Fulgham was claimed by the Dolphins only to be released and later claimed by the Broncos. The slender 6′, 2″ 215lbs wideout signed a futures contract in Denver and will begin 2022 on the pony squad. Travis has good size and decent production for a practice squad guy, and with Russell Wilson coming to town, all broncos receivers should be on the table.


153. Auden Tate | 25 | Bengals – At 6′, 5″ 230lbs. Tate is a mismatch against most defensive backs, but his lack of speed (4.68 40-yard dash) limits his upside. The big man’s big year was 2019 when he had 575 yards receiving on 40 catches. The former Florida State Seminole only caught about half passes thrown his way during his four-year NFL career- A mark he must improve. The former 7th round selection is a free agent in 2022.


154. Adam Humphries | 28 | Commanders – Solid shot area slot receiver had 41 catches in 2021. The Clemson alum is a few years removed from his best season, with 76 catches, 816 yards, and 5 touchdowns in 2018. Adam had a good thing going in the garden of Tampa Bay adding up, 2,369 yards receiving and nine touchdowns on 219 receptions during his four-year Buccaneer career. but his once flourishing career has faltered since his exodus from Eden reduced to a paltry 101 receptions 985 yards and four touchdowns in the three seasons since he left the Bay. The former Clemson Tiger is a free agent in 2022.



155. John Brown | 31 | Buccaneers – A 3rd round pick (91st overall) in 2014, Brown has played NFL seasons. The diminutive wideout (5′, 10″ 180lbs) is not that far removed from a successful season. He put 1,060 receiving yards and 6TDs on 72 receptions in 2019. A free agent, Brown will look to make a team in need of a veteran WR in 2022.


156. Tyrell Williams | 30 | Lions – Had a solid four-year run from 2015 thru 2019 accruing 3,091 yards and 22 touchdowns on 195 receptions during that time. Williams has been out with injury the past two seasons. Torn Labrum in 2020 and Concussion in 2021. If he is healthy again, the 6′, 4″ 210lbs wideout with a 4.4 40-yard dash from Salem, Oregon makes for an interesting late-round flier.


157. Frank Darby | 24 | Falcons – The 6th round pick from the 2021 draft is the only WR under contract in Atlanta. The 6′ 1″ 200lbs. receiver was a three-star recruit who committed to the Iowa Hawkeyes but could not qualify academically. Darby eventually elected to enroll at Arizona State. Like many of the Sun Devil receivers (N’keal Harry and Brandon Aiyuk), Frank needs to work on route running. Coaches like his attitude, and he has big-play ability averaging over 20 yards per reception in college. The Falcons will likely add receivers in the offseason, but Frank (just like anybody) will get a look in Atlanta out of necessity.


158. Isaiah Ford | 26 | Dolphins – 7th round pick in 2017 from Virginia Tech. 6′ 1′ 200lbs. bounced back and forth from the Patriots to Dolphins, on and off the 53 man roster. Isaiah caught had a minor breakthrough in 2021 catching 2TDs for the fins. A free agent in 2022, the well-traveled Ford finds himself on the road again.


159. Ashton Dulin | 24 | Colts – 6′ 2″ 215lbs Dulin played his college football for the Malone Pioneers. For those of you who are unfamiliar with D-II Malone University, it is a private Christian School located in Canton Ohio. Ashton joins other notable alumni including lead news anchor for HLN’s morning show Morning Express, Robin Meade. Lead guitarist of Christian pop-punk band Reliant K. And… that’s about it. Dulin ran a 4.43 40-yard dash at his pro day but has provided little production during his three NFL seasons. The restricted free agent will probably remain in Indy for the 2022 season.


160. Antoine Wesley | 24 | Cardinals – He’s bounced around practice squads for the past few years, but the 6′, 4″ 206lbs. Wesley finally got an opportunity in 2021. It took injuries to starters, but the former Texas Tech Red Raiders’ targets were trending up towards the end of the season. Antoine was 21 targets over the final four games of the 2021 season and caught 3TDs. He even saw a red zone target in the Playoff game against the Rams. The thing I like most about Wesley is his situation. For the moment, it appears he will have Kyler Murray throwing him the ball, and that’s a good thing.


161. Davy Jones | 400 (give or take a few years) | Flying Dutchmen – An idiom that refers to the sea bed, the resting place for thousands of sailors drowned at sea. Davy Jones is a Sea Devil in some cultures and a Patron Saint in others. My favorite theory is that Davy Jones was a publican who ran a British Pub. He would over-serve his customers getting them into a drunken stupor before he imprisoned them in the basement of the bar. The evil barkeep would then sell his inebriated customers into slavery or piracy. In this story, Jones’ bar goes bankrupt and he becomes a pirate stealing the vessel “The Flying Dutchman” in the dead of night. The former mixologist would sail the seven seas plundering ships and beheading sailors, all the while garnering a well-earned reputation that eventually prevented him from ever docking his ship. The vessel eventually sank to the ocean floor where Davy Jones rests to this very day.
