Welcome to the Week 17 wide receiver rankings. I’ve done my best and will wake up and grind some more on Sunday. I’ll be available most of the morning for those who have tough decisions. More than happy to be your second opinion if you need one. Hit me up on Twitter.

Tight ends coming up soon.

Good luck to all this week!

These rankings are based on .5 PPR scoring.

Rank PLAYER Cost TEAM Matchup Status THE SKINNY
1 Jordy Nelson 8100 GB GB@Det 08:30PM ET He is smoking hot and playing for a playoff spot.
2 T.Y. Hilton 7600 Ind Jax@Ind 01:00PM ET Liking his matchup and no Moncrief so targets are locked in,
3 Julio Jones 8400 Atl NO@Atl 04:25PM ET Should be the real Julio this week … and they need him to be.
4 Doug Baldwin 7200 Sea Sea@SF 04:25PM ET Great matchup and no Lockett means plenty of targets.
5 Mike Evans 8000 TB Car@TB 01:00PM ET Will be heavily targeted and the matchup is very good.
6 Odell Beckham Jr. 9000 NYG NYG@Was 04:25PM ET I do not trust the Giants and what they are saying. That said, OBJ will play—perhaps a lot and he’s worth a spot in your lineup. Just understand that he’s a wildcard—capable of anything from nothing to the Week 17 WR1.
7 Michael Thomas 6700 NO NO@Atl 04:25PM ET Very good situation for him to go off.
8 Brandin Cooks 6900 NO NO@Atl 04:25PM ET Big upside and he’ll play the whole game.
9 Golden Tate 6600 Det GB@Det 08:30PM ET He is going to see the ball and there are playoff implications.
10 Sammy Watkins 5800 Buf Buf@NYJ 01:00PM ET make sure they don’t opt to pull him, but he could eat the Jets up—even with Manuel at QB.
11 Demaryius Thomas 6300 Den Oak@Den 04:25PM ET They are going to throw it a lot.
12 Emmanuel Sanders 6100 Den Oak@Den 04:25PM ET They are going to throw it a lot.
13 Allen Robinson 5500 Jax Jax@Ind 01:00PM ET Should get tons of volume this week with so few healthy players around him.
14 DeAndre Hopkins 6500 Hou Hou@Ten 01:00PM ET Very good matchup.
15 DeSean Jackson 5600 Was NYG@Was 04:25PM ET He is fire right now and the stakes are high.
16 Larry Fitzgerald 6000 Ari Ari@LA 04:25PM ET He needs the offense to move to make hay of his inside role and it’s not.
17 Davante Adams 5700 GB GB@Det 08:30PM ET Should produce in this game.
18 J.J. Nelson 4600 Ari Ari@LA 04:25PM ET Liking him a lot this week.
19 Steve Smith Sr. 4900 Bal Bal@Cin 01:00PM ET Good play in what will be Smith’s final game. What a remarkable career,
20 Julian Edelman 6400 NE NE@Mia 01:00PM ET His reps will be managed, but he’ll see the ball plenty when he is in there.
21 Michael Crabtree 5600 Oak Oak@Den 04:25PM ET Tough matchup, obviously, and no Carr.
22 Alshon Jeffery 5900 Chi Chi@Min 01:00PM ET Should see Rhodes in coverage.
23 Cameron Meredith 5200 Chi Chi@Min 01:00PM ET Plenty of upside here if Newman is on him most of the day.
24 Adam Thielen 5600 Min Chi@Min 01:00PM ET
25 Amari Cooper 5500 Oak Oak@Den 04:25PM ET
26 Tyrell Williams 5700 SD KC@SD 04:25PM ET
27 Tyreek Hill 5600 KC KC@SD 04:25PM ET Huge upside but does it mostly as a runner.
28 Willie Snead 5400 NO NO@Atl 04:25PM ET
29 Ted Ginn Jr. 4500 Car Car@TB 01:00PM ET
30 Jarvis Landry 5000 Mia NE@Mia 01:00PM ET
31 Chris Hogan 3900 NE NE@Mia 01:00PM ET Should play a major role this week.
32 Dontrelle Inman 5300 SD KC@SD 04:25PM ET
33 Brandon LaFell 4500 Cin Bal@Cin 01:00PM ET
34 Eli Rogers 4000 Pit Cle@Pit 01:00PM ET

49 Tavon Austin 4300 LA Ari@LA 04:25PM ET
50 Dez Bryant 6200 Dal Dal@Phi 01:00PM ET Should be on a VERY short leash this week as he is injury-prone and vital to their title hopes.

52 Breshad Perriman 3000 Bal Bal@Cin 01:00PM ET
53 Devin Funchess 3300 Car Car@TB 01:00PM ET

59 Kenny Stills 3900 Mia NE@Mia 01:00PM ET

67 Jeremy Kerley 3200 SF Sea@SF 04:25PM ET
