Welcome to the Week 4 Wide Receiver Rankings. I’ll be back in a little bit with the tight ends.

No byes this week so there’s no shortage of playable options. I’m still grinding the Week 4 receivers and the Saturday version will be tighter in the 40-60 area. Lots of tough calls this week and lots of injuries (to support talent) to work through. Things should be more clear by Saturday as more practice reports come out.

These rankings are based on .5 PPR scoring.

1 Odell Beckham Jr. NYG 8900 NYG@TB 04:05PM ET 18.25 Was unreal last week and this is a funnel matchup for the passing game. Brent Grimes (solid corner) should been him and I’m not scared of that.
2 Antonio Brown PIT 9300 PIT@BAL 01:00PM ET 24.467 He can handle CB Jimmy Smith. Expect good things.
3 A.J. Green CIN 8600 CIN@CLE 01:00PM ET 18.067 Love him here. Volume and big play potential.
4 Michael Thomas NO 7300 NO@MIA 09:30AM ET 15.033 Looking very good right now and this is a good matchup.
5 Julio Jones ATL 8800 BUF@ATL 01:00PM ET 15.167 back is a mild concern. Make sure he’s active, but expected to play as of now.
6 Keenan Allen LAC 7200 PHI@LAC 04:05PM ET 15.867 Volume is locked in here. No way they go run heavy against Philly.
7 Brandin Cooks NE 7600 CAR@NE 01:00PM ET 17.733 Was never struggling as much as folks thought and he could do major damage here.
8 DeAndre Hopkins HOU 6400 TEN@HOU 01:00PM ET 15.8 Solid matchup but his knee is sore so double check status before locking him in.
9 Emmanuel Sanders DEN 6100 OAK@DEN 04:25PM ET 14.767 Love this matchup and his QB is up to the task.
10 Mike Evans TB 7400 NYG@TB 04:05PM ET 18 Janoris Jenkins will be on him most of the day, so tough matchup.
11 Larry Fitzgerald ARI 6100 SF@ARI 04:05PM ET 18.467 Locked into a volume role and very active in the red zone with no DJ to dominate goal line.
12 Sammy Watkins LAR 5900 LAR@DAL 01:00PM ET 15.8 In concussion protocol but limited so expected to play.
13 Tyreek Hill KC 6800 WAS@KC 08:30PM ET 19.567 Tough matchup but they find ways to get him involved so still a solid play.
14 Jarvis Landry MIA 6500 NO@MIA 09:30AM ET 15.45 Great matchup.
15 Stefon Diggs MIN 7100 DET@MIN 01:00PM ET 24.367 He should see a lot of Darius Slay so keep expectations in check.
16 Dez Bryant DAL 6500 LAR@DAL 01:00PM ET 11.467 Should see a lot of CB Trumaine Johnson Johnson this week, so that’s limiting.
17 Demaryius Thomas DEN 6300 OAK@DEN 04:25PM ET 13.533 Solid matchup.
18 DeSean Jackson TB 5200 NYG@TB 04:05PM ET 12.65 Love his matchup here. It’s an aggressive ranking so feel free to use your own judgement, but he should avoid Janoris in coverage and Eli Apple will have his hands full with D-Jax. Tampa would be nuts not to target this matchup early and often. He’s a potential steal on DraftkIngs. Nice GPP play.
19 Alshon Jeffery PHI 6200 PHI@LAC 04:05PM ET 13.533 Casey Hayward is a guy who can show and I expect him to be on Alshon most of the day. He won’t shut him down, but he can slow him down.
20 Chris Hogan NE 6000 CAR@NE 01:00PM ET 15.033 Plenty of upside here.
21 Golden Tate DET 6300 DET@MIN 01:00PM ET 16.567 Very tough matchup with Xavier Rhodes.
22 Adam Thielen MIN 5800 DET@MIN 01:00PM ET 16.967 Get a bump if you are in full PPR he should avoid Slay for most of the day and that SHOULD lead to himout-targeting Diggs.
23 Amari Cooper OAK 6000 OAK@DEN 04:25PM ET 8.7 Tough matchup, obviously, but he’s a stud talent so worth a start as a WR2 or WR3. I suspect that he’ll see less of Talib on coverage.
24 T.Y. Hilton IND 5300 IND@SEA 08:30PM ET 15.967 A very interesting play on DK just like last week, but this is a tough matchup, so I’m less inclined to take risks compared to last week. He’s a WR3 for seasonal.
25 DeVante Parker MIA 6700 NO@MIA 09:30AM ET 17.05 Marshon Lattimore will be on him, so there’s some concern. A huge game will need a huge play. I’m looking for solid WR3 numbers and I’ll be happy.
26 Terrelle Pryor Sr. WAS 5400 WAS@KC 08:30PM ET 7.2 Huge upside but the results really leave one wanting so far. He’s dropped a few long ones including a TD. A big game wouldn’t exactly come out of nowhere and I do expect defenses to come up a bit on Chris Thompson in passing situations.
27 Rishard Matthews TEN 4900 TEN@HOU 01:00PM ET 13.367 Playing very well and should produce here. A steal on DK.
28 Kelvin Benjamin CAR 6000 CAR@NE 01:00PM ET 6.667 Keep an eye on him even though he practiced in full. He’s a WR3 with upside this week against the Pats.
29 Kenny Stills MIA 4300 NO@MIA 09:30AM ET 10.4 I think he’s hugely underrated right now. Stills is playing full time snaps—as many as Landry and Parker. He’s going to see tons of greta matchups this year and is a weekly WR3 or flex in 12-team leagues.
30 Tyler Lockett SEA 4500 IND@SEA 08:30PM ET 6.4 Has a goos hot at target volume this week with Baldwin no lock to play and Richardson likely to be lined up with Vontae Davis. He’s a steal on most DFS sites this week.
31 Doug Baldwin SEA 6900 IND@SEA 08:30PM ET 16.633 Has a sore groin, so check his status before locking him in. Sunday night start could be an issue. He could play but he’s a little risky. If they get ahead, they will pull him for rest purposes.
32 Allen Hurns JAX 4700 JAX@NYJ 01:00PM ET 12.8
33 Sterling Shepard NYG 5000 NYG@TB 04:05PM ET 15.433
34 Martavis Bryant PIT 5400 PIT@BAL 01:00PM ET 9.067 His snap totals are a bit concerning, as is his play. He had a long layoff so maybe it’s to be expected. He’s a WR3 this week.
35 Eric Decker TEN 4200 TEN@HOU 01:00PM ET 6.367
36 Brandon Marshall NYG 4600 NYG@TB 04:05PM ET 6.433
37 Pierre Garcon SF 5500 SF@ARI 04:05PM ET 14.633 Tough matchup with Patrick P.
38 Marqise Lee JAX 4500 JAX@NYJ 01:00PM ET 8.367
39 J.J. Nelson ARI 5600 SF@ARI 04:05PM ET 13.767
40 Willie Snead NO 5000 NO@MIA 09:30AM ET 0 Returns this week and the matchup is good.
41 Danny Amendola NE 4900 CAR@NE 01:00PM ET 13.4
42 Travis Benjamin LAC 3900 PHI@LAC 04:05PM ET 11.6 Great shot at making the big play this week.
43 Ted Ginn Jr. NO 3900 NO@MIA 09:30AM ET 9.7 Like him a lot this week. WR is deep so just a flex in seasonal, but his price tag is temping on DraftKings.
44 Tyrell Williams LAC 4400 PHI@LAC 04:05PM ET 7.767
45 Jamison Crowder WAS 4900 WAS@KC 08:30PM ET 7.433
46 Jeremy Maclin BAL 4500 PIT@BAL 01:00PM ET 9.5
47 Mohamed Sanu ATL 4800 BUF@ATL 01:00PM ET 12.333
48 Devin Funchess CAR 5300 CAR@NE 01:00PM ET 8.2
49 Marvin Jones Jr. DET 4000 DET@MIN 01:00PM ET 8.933
50 Seth Roberts OAK 3300 OAK@DEN 04:25PM ET 4.633 Should see increased role with Crabtree out (he’s technically doubtful) and he’s already been playing a lot of snaps.
51 Cooper Kupp LAR 4300 LAR@DAL 01:00PM ET 9.2
52 Paul Richardson SEA 4600 IND@SEA 08:30PM ET 10.267
53 Josh Doctson WAS 3600 WAS@KC 08:30PM ET 4.067
54 John Brown ARI 5100 SF@ARI 04:05PM ET 8.2 He will play this week, but no way to tell what he can do.
55 Jordan Matthews BUF 3900 BUF@ATL 01:00PM ET 7.733
56 Marquise Goodwin SF 3500 SF@ARI 04:05PM ET 6.3
57 Jermaine Kearse NYJ 4600 JAX@NYJ 01:00PM ET 14.167 Brutal matchup.
58 Kenny Britt CLE 4300 CIN@CLE 01:00PM ET 5.967
59 Robby Anderson NYJ 3800 JAX@NYJ 01:00PM ET 9.833 Brutal matchup.
60 Jaron Brown ARI 4000 SF@ARI 04:05PM ET 7.333
61 Taylor Gabriel ATL 4100 BUF@ATL 01:00PM ET 9.867
62 Brandon Coleman NO 3500 NO@MIA 09:30AM ET 9.867
63 Donte Moncrief IND 3500 IND@SEA 08:30PM ET 5.4
64 Phillip Dorsett NE 4000 CAR@NE 01:00PM ET 3.5
65 Will Fuller V HOU 3800 TEN@HOU 01:00PM ET 0 Should return this week but I really hope they aren’t pushing him too fast. This is a very early return for this injury (collarbone)
66 Cole Beasley DAL 4500 LAR@DAL 01:00PM ET 4.967
67 Rashard Higgins CLE 4500 CIN@CLE 01:00PM ET 9.95
68 Mike Wallace BAL 3500 PIT@BAL 01:00PM ET 1.833
69 Robert Woods LAR 3900 LAR@DAL 01:00PM ET 9.967
70 Nelson Agholor PHI 3900 PHI@LAC 04:05PM ET 10.833
71 Curtis Samuel CAR 4000 CAR@NE 01:00PM ET 2.767
72 Torrey Smith PHI 3700 PHI@LAC 04:05PM ET 7.167
73 Brice Butler DAL 3000 LAR@DAL 01:00PM ET 7.933
74 JuJu Smith-Schuster PIT 3000 PIT@BAL 01:00PM ET 5.5
75 Kenny Golladay DET 4100 DET@MIN 01:00PM ET 9.733 Questionable (hamstring)
76 Cordarrelle Patterson OAK 3000 OAK@DEN 04:25PM ET 5.733 Could easily make a big impact in this game with Crabtree out, but no way to know for sure. He’s an uber gutsy (borderline crazy) dart throw on DK at the floor price. I’d love to see them use him like a power version of Tarik Cohen. He’s playing good football for them right now. His role could grow in the coming weeks but he’s obviously capped by the two stud receivers and a loaded backfield.

84 Jeremy Kerley NYJ 3700 JAX@NYJ 01:00PM ET 6.8
85 Amara Darboh SEA 3000 IND@SEA 08:30PM ET 0.867 Could see more snaps this week if Baldwin sits. Has looked solid so far in limited time.

102 Brittan Golden ARI 3000 SF@ARI 04:05PM ET 2.333
103 Chris Godwin TB 3000 NYG@TB 04:05PM ET 3.7 Running behind Humphries for slot duties and that’s not a big knock as Humphries can play.

115 Michael Crabtree OAK 6200 OAK@DEN 04:25PM ET 16 He’s been downgraded to doubtful (chest), so it’s hard to see him playing. You need to make other plans.
116 Corey Davis TEN 4000 TEN@HOU 01:00PM ET 7.15 OUT (hamstring)
117 Jordy Nelson GB 7700 ALREADY PLAYED 14.7 Will be matched up with Kyle Fuller and that’s a challenge, but Nelson’s been getting it done.
118 Davante Adams GB 5900 ALREADY PLAYED 13.533 Should see the ball here with Fuller on Jordy.
