Fantasy Football season is here and week 1 is right around the corner. I'm here to give you a preview of the top 10 players at each respective position for week 1 of the 2016 NFL season. Here's a list of the 10 best wide receivers who should almost definitely be in your lineup next week. For a list of the best week 1 running backs, check out this link.

1. Julio Jones

That's right, Julio ranks above Antonio Brown for the first week of the year. He averaged nearly 15 points a game against the Buccaneers last season and will again take on a pass defense that is severely lacking in quality. Plus, Jones is scary good when he is healthy and isn't hampered by a serious groin injury.

2. Antonio Brown

Fantasy's leading wide receiver for the past two years comes in second on this list for a few reasons. First, he will play against a revamped Redskins secondary that now includes Josh Norman and rising star Bashaud Breeland. Second, Julio Jones has a better matchup. But that doesn't mean Brown won't have his usual monsterfantasy game.

3. Amari Cooper

This is a little high for a receiver as young as Cooper, but it's reasonable given the matchup. The Saints could have been the worst defense in football last season and won't be much better this year. Cooper is the top target on a highly talented Raiders offense and should have plenty of opportunities to pile up the points against the Saints.

4. Deandre Hopkins

The Texans star wide receiver had a huge season last year catching passes from complete nobodies. Now he will catch passes from Brock Osweiler, a quarterback who has been impressive in the preseason. Chicago is actually pretty good at defending the pass, but their offense is poor enough for Hopkins to get plenty of targets throughout the game.

5. Sammy Watkins

The star receiver for the Buffalo Bills was one of the best fantasy players toward the end of the season last year. He scored six touchdowns in the last six weeks of the season and had more than 100 yards receiving in four of those six performances. Now he gets to play against a Baltimore Ravens team that is very weak against the pass.

Watkins should have no trouble putting up big numbers in week 1.

6. Dez Bryant

The Dallas Cowboys wide receiver struggled through injuries in the regular season last year. His production was also cut by a lack of Tony Romo, who missed pretty much the entire season with injury. Now he will have to play without Romo again, but he's looked great with Dak Prescott in the preseason. Bryant also gets a favorable matchup against a weak New York Giants secondary.

7. Odell Beckham Jr.

Now that there's more than one option on the Giants offense, Odell will probably see a small decrease in production. That doesn't change the fact that Odell is a highly talented receiver capable receiver of putting up big numbers in any given performance.

But be careful. Odell had just 7 fantasy points in two games against the Cowboys last year.

8. Allen Robinson

The Jaguars best receiver last season was also one of the best fantasy players of 2016. Blake Bortles absolutely loves him and targets him a ton during Jaguars games. That pure usage makes Robinson a top 10 receiver almost every week. But week 1 will bring a much bigger challenge against a solid Packers defense that is excellentagainst the pass.

9. Jordy Nelson

The Packers best wide receiver missed all of 2015 with a torn ACL and was sorely missed. Now that he's back, expect Jordy to be heavily targeted by Aaron Rodgers in his first game back. The Packers shouldn't have any problems putting up big numbers on a Jaguars defense that let up a few big games to receivers like Deandre Hopkins last year.

10. A.J. Green

It's time to stop believing that Darelle Revis is the shutdown corner that he once was. Revis is still good, but nowhere near good enough to shut down a player as talented as wide receiver A.J. Green. Green will also get a ton of fantasy looks now that Marvin Jones is gone and Tyler Eifert is down with an injury.
