Poll: Which AFC wide receiver will score the most fantasy points in 2015?

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown led all receivers in fantasy points scored last season regardless of scoring format.

While Brown led the NFL in receptions (129) and receiving yards (1,698), the most impressive thing about Brown's production over the past couple of seasons has been his consistency. Oddly enough, Brown never finished with the most fantasy points among wide receivers in any given week last year despite leading the position on the year. Over the past two seasons, however, Brown has recorded at least five receptions and 50 receiving yards in every game.

Going into the 2015 season, Brown is my top-ranked fantasy receiver. And the majority of "experts" tracked by FantasyPros, including yours truly, have Brown ranked as their WR1.

My second-ranked wideout, Denver's Demaryius Thomas, is also the guy that finished second in fantasy points among wide receivers in 2014 although he was tied with Green Bay's Jordy Nelson.

In three seasons playing with Peyton Manning, Thomas has posted the following stat lines: 94/1,434/10 (2012), 92/1,430/14 (2013) and 111/1,619/11 (2014). Even if DT doesn't duplicate last year's career numbers, he appears to be a lock for 90 catches, 1,400 yards and double-digit touchdowns.

Among the top-eight wide receivers that I view as part of an "elite" tier, three of them play in the AFC. Along with Brown and Thomas, the third of that group is Cincinnati's A.J. Green. Green missed a few games last season, but he still finished with 69 catches for 1,041 yards and six touchdowns. In his previous two seasons, however, Green averaged 97.5 receptions, 1,388 yards and 11 touchdowns per season.

There are some other young AFC receivers on the rise, such as T.Y. Hilton and DeAndre Hopkins, but they are not yet in the same tier as Brown, Thomas and Green.

Of these AFC wide receivers, which one will score the most fantasy points in 2015 (using standard scoring)?
