Antonio Brown – Buy the Boom, Skip the Bust

The first article of this series introduced the concept of using High Floor and Boom/Bust “prototypes” to better understand the week-to-week risk a player brings to your roster. The rest of the series will step through the wide receiver tiers, WR1 down to WR4. The following focuses on the WR1’s. I almost skipped the WR1 tier entirely. Why split hairs? You don’t need me to tell you that Demaryius Thomas and Dez Bryant will be good this year. But that’s kind of the point. We all know these guys will score – but knowing how they score can give us a better understanding of our roster’s risk profile and inform decisions later in the draft. Here, I spotlight Antonio Brown and T.Y. Hilton, whose current ADP’s have them at the top and bottom of the WR1 tier. Their profiles are followed by a table summarizing my takes on the remainder of the top 12.
