|Meaning||First starting fantasy wide receiver|
WR1 is a position in fantasy football (FFB) that refers to a team's best starting wide receiver. The acronym is often seen in FFB lineups along with the WR2 acronym in two and three WR formats and the WR3 acronym in three WR formats.
Most FFLs consist of starting lineups with 1 QB, 2 RBs, 3 WRs (or 2 WRs and a flex position), 1 TE, 1 K, and 1 team defense and special teams. The WR position is one of the most important positions in FFB because it has a great chance of scoring a lot of points. The position is primarily used for catching the ball for yards and TDs, but it may also be used for running the ball.
"I can't believe he won the league after drafting his WR1 in the third round.
Yeah, he got so lucky with his sleeper picks."
