Welcome to the Week 5 Wide Receiver Rankings. I’ll be back in a little bit with the tight ends.

Plenty of action tonight with two high scoring teams and a Patriot shake-up, with Gronkowski sitting out. That should lead to more targets for the receivers and a role for Dwayne Allen. I’m loving Jordy, AJG and Dez this week in addition to the Patriots and Bucs receivers who are, sadly, getting wasted off of the main slate on DraftKings.

Bye losses:

  • Michael Thomas
  • Ted Ginn
  • Willie Snead
  • Julio Jones
  • Mohamed Sanu
  • Taylor Gabriel
  • Demaryius Thomas
  • Emanuel Sanders
  • Terrelle Pryor
  • Josh Doctson
  • Ryan Grant
  • Jamison Crowder

These rankings are based on .5 PPR scoring.
 

Rank PLAYER TEAM Cost Matchup PPG THE SKINNY
1 Jordy Nelson GB 8100 GB@DAL 04:25PM ET 16.9 Love him here.
2 Dez Bryant DAL 6500 GB@DAL 04:25PM ET 12.3 He could go off here. he should go off here.
3 A.J. Green CIN 8200 BUF@CIN 01:00PM ET 17.875 Touchdowns the last two weeks and a lock for close to 10 targets this week.
4 Odell Beckham Jr. NYG 8500 LAC@NYG 01:00PM ET 17.5 Could still go off despite being matched up with Casey Hayward.
5 Antonio Brown PIT 8400 JAX@PIT 01:00PM ET 20.2 Tough matchup and feuding with his QB.
6 DeAndre Hopkins HOU 7600 KC@HOU 08:30PM ET 19.275 Playing great and finally has a decent QB.
7 Stefon Diggs MIN 7300 MIN@CHI 08:30PM ET 21.975 Playing at a high level, but a potentially tough matchup with Kyle Fuller. Bradford’s return is a plus—assuming it happens.
8 Larry Fitzgerald ARI 6800 ARI@PHI 01:00PM ET 17.15 Willing himself to make big plays each week. He’s not what he was, but he’s getting good interior matchups just enough to be productive and still a red zone threat, especially with no DJ.
9 Keenan Allen LAC 7200 LAC@NYG 01:00PM ET 17.35 Good matchup because he avoids Jenkins when he’s lined up in the slot. Even better in full PPR.
10 Golden Tate DET 6300 CAR@DET 01:00PM ET 13.95 Like him a lot here vs. a lot of deep zone. A bump in full PPR.
11 DeVante Parker MIA 6600 TEN@MIA 01:00PM ET 15.667 Great matchup for him, but his QB is a little shaky and the pass pro is uber shaky.
12 T.Y. Hilton IND 6000 SF@IND 01:00PM ET 13.475
13 Tyreek Hill KC 6700 KC@HOU 08:30PM ET 16.8 Big ceiling but also big play dependent.
14 Adam Thielen MIN 5900 MIN@CHI 08:30PM ET 15.2 Bradford playing gives him a legit boost.
15 Doug Baldwin SEA 7000 SEA@LAR 04:05PM ET 14.6 Banged (groin) up so I’m using him as a WR2.
16 Rishard Matthews TEN 5400 TEN@MIA 01:00PM ET 12
17 Davante Adams GB 5800 GB@DAL 04:25PM ET 12.475 Sounds like he’s going to play but double check at lineup lock just to be sure. Good matchup. Allison is a great play if Adams sits.
18 Pierre Garcon SF 6100 SF@IND 01:00PM ET 12.875 Should see plenty of Vontae Davis.
19 Randall Cobb GB 6700 GB@DAL 04:25PM ET 14.967
20 Alshon Jeffery PHI 5800 ARI@PHI 01:00PM ET 13.125
21 Jarvis Landry MIA 5800 TEN@MIA 01:00PM ET 13.633 Bump him a few spots in full PPR.
22 Kelvin Benjamin CAR 5900 CAR@DET 01:00PM ET 9.35
23 Devin Funchess CAR 5600 CAR@DET 01:00PM ET 12.65
24 Sammy Watkins LAR 5000 SEA@LAR 04:05PM ET 12.525 They will keep him away from Sherman some and he will get going again. Remember, he’s still new and learning a new offense with no offseason.
25 Sterling Shepard NYG 5200 LAC@NYG 01:00PM ET 14.175
26 Will Fuller V HOU 4400 KC@HOU 08:30PM ET 19.9
27 Michael Crabtree OAK 6400 BAL@OAK 04:05PM ET 16 No Carr so downgrade.
28 Amari Cooper OAK 5700 BAL@OAK 04:05PM ET 7.25 No Carr and he’s struggling.
29 Martavis Bryant PIT 5000 JAX@PIT 01:00PM ET 8.75 Looked better than his stats least week. Made a few sweet grabs. Snaps totals are a slight concern, but I think he gets better and better. **Was a late add to the injury report with an illness. Check his status before locking him in.
30 Tyrell Williams LAC 5300 LAC@NYG 01:00PM ET 12.2 Should see plenty of Janoris Jenkins. Tough matchup.
31 Allen Hurns JAX 4700 JAX@PIT 01:00PM ET 11.65
32 Jaron Brown ARI 4500 ARI@PHI 01:00PM ET 10.875
33 Tyler Lockett SEA 4500 SEA@LAR 04:05PM ET 8.075
34 Brandon Marshall NYG 4600 LAC@NYG 01:00PM ET 7.475
35 Jermaine Kearse NYJ 4500 NYJ@CLE 01:00PM ET 12.05
36 Cooper Kupp LAR 4500 SEA@LAR 04:05PM ET 11.15
37 Paul Richardson SEA 4600 SEA@LAR 04:05PM ET 10.075
38 Eric Decker TEN 4000 TEN@MIA 01:00PM ET 5.6
39 John Brown ARI 5100 ARI@PHI 01:00PM ET 7.95 Limited this week so hard to trust.
40 JuJu Smith-Schuster PIT 3500 JAX@PIT 01:00PM ET 7.55 A sleeper, especially if Martavis sits with illness.
41 Jeremy Maclin BAL 4200 BAL@OAK 04:05PM ET 8.4
42 Marvin Jones Jr. DET 4100 CAR@DET 01:00PM ET 8.25

48 Kendall Wright CHI 4000 MIN@CHI 08:30PM ET 8.85
49 J.J. Nelson ARI 4900 ARI@PHI 01:00PM ET 11.925 Questionable with sore hammy.

53 Robert Woods LAR 3700 SEA@LAR 04:05PM ET 8.4
54 Marqise Lee JAX 4400 JAX@PIT 01:00PM ET 7.225 Questionable with sore ribs.
55 Geronimo Allison GB 4400 GB@DAL 04:25PM ET 8.867 WR3 if Adams sits.

84 Amara Darboh SEA 3000 SEA@LAR 04:05PM ET 1.4
85 Kenny Golladay DET 4000 CAR@DET 01:00PM ET 9.733 Trending out again (hamstring)
86 Corey Davis TEN 4000 TEN@MIA 01:00PM ET 7.15 OUT
87 Brandin Cooks NE 7400 NE@TB 08:25PM ET 15.1 (ALREADY PLAYED) No Gronk so targets should be high.
88 Chris Hogan NE 6100 NE@TB 08:25PM ET 15.525 No Gronk so he should be very active.
89 Danny Amendola NE 5000 NE@TB 08:25PM ET 14.333 (ALREADY PLAYED) Will be key with Gronk out.
90 Phillip Dorsett NE 4000 NE@TB 08:25PM ET 3.3 (ALREADY PLAYED) Could see some extra passes with Gronk out.
91 Mike Evans TB 7900 NE@TB 08:25PM ET 17.9 (ALREADY PLAYED) They may try to take him away, but it’s not easy, especially in the red zone, and they will spend some time there tonight.
92 DeSean Jackson TB 5400 NE@TB 08:25PM ET 9.767 (ALREADY PLAYED) Has big play upside but hasn’t made a big impact yet. Missed a few big plays on overthrows so it’s going to happen soon.
93 Adam Humphries TB 3300 NE@TB 08:25PM ET 9.867 (ALREADY PLAYED)
94 Chris Godwin TB 3000 NE@TB 08:25PM ET 2.467 (ALREADY PLAYED)
