Welcome to the Week 6 Wide Receiver Rankings. I’ll be back in a little bit with the tight ends.

No Dez, AJ Green or Doug Baldwin this week. That’ll leave some dents in lineups. I eyed these ranks out as best as I could, but I will be grinding them down even more between now and Saturday, especially for DFS matchups, so check back for the update.

Obviously there are issues apart from the byes. The Giants are barely an offense at this point. They have no strengths and a bad OL. OBJ & Marshall are gone but Shepard is also out for the time being. DeVante Parker is trending out and so is Mohamed Sanu.

Bye losses:

  • Bills
  • Bengals
  • Cowboys
  • Seahawks

These rankings are based on .5 PPR scoring.

Rank PLAYER TEAM Cost Matchup PPG THE SKINNY
1 Antonio Brown PIT 9300 PIT@KC 04:25PM ET 21.9 Should see the ball a ton.
2 Julio Jones ATL 8300 MIA@ATL 01:00PM ET 12.875 He’s back and practicing fully. No Sanu so maybe even a few extra targets and red zone looks.
3 DeAndre Hopkins HOU 8100 CLE@HOU 01:00PM ET 20.86 Getting tons of looks.
4 Michael Thomas NO 7300 DET@NO 01:00PM ET 17 Great spot for him.
5 Keenan Allen LAC 7900 LAC@OAK 04:25PM ET 16.02 The one Chargers receiver whose role is locked in.
6 Chris Hogan NE 7000 NE@NYJ 01:00PM ET 16.7 Should score and posy 8- plus yards.
7 T.Y. Hilton IND 6700 IND@TEN 08:30PM ET 16.32 Playing great without Luck. Stick with him.
8 Brandin Cooks NE 7600 NE@NYJ 01:00PM ET 14.78 Has the speed to crush the Jets.
9 Davante Adams GB 5700 GB@MIN 01:00PM ET 15.1 Should see some good looks assuming Rhodes is on Jordy and the word is that he’ll follow Nelson everywhere—including the slot. He’s a DK steal at 5700.
10 Jordy Nelson GB 7100 GB@MIN 01:00PM ET 15.6 Should see a lot of Rhodes, so not a great week for Nelson. He still finds a way to score in these situations and they’ll move him around. He’s viable but unlikely to go off.
11 Pierre Garcon SF 6300 SF@WAS 01:00PM ET 13.78 Good matchup for him with Norman out.
12 Michael Crabtree OAK 5800 LAC@OAK 04:25PM ET 17.05 Carr’s back! Good news assuming Carr stays healthy all week.
13 Jarvis Landry MIA 6600 MIA@ATL 01:00PM ET 14.075 No Parker this week so he should see the ball.
14 Mike Evans TB 6900 TB@ARI 04:05PM ET 15.9 Tough matchup with Peterson.
15 Golden Tate DET 6800 DET@NO 01:00PM ET 13.12 He has a good shot at heating up in this matchup.
16 Larry Fitzgerald ARI 6800 TB@ARI 04:05PM ET 15.94 If AP plays well, it will help guys like Fitz. ‘Zone needs some kind of ground threat to work off of. He’s got a good matchup here versus Tampa’s DBs.
17 Adam Thielen MIN 6000 GB@MIN 01:00PM ET 14.06 Good matchup.
18 Randall Cobb GB 5900 GB@MIN 01:00PM ET 12.95 He’ll be a factor
19 Tyreek Hill KC 6400 PIT@KC 04:25PM ET 16.8 Hasn’t done much since his lucky touchdown against the Pats in Week 1. Could breakout any time, but he’s looking like a WR3 once the byes are over unless he gets it going.
20 DeSean Jackson TB 5800 TB@ARI 04:05PM ET 11.975 Should see the ball often with Evans locked up against Pat Peterson.
21 Will Fuller V HOU 5200 CLE@HOU 01:00PM ET 20.05 He’s hot and it’s a good matchup.
22 Terrelle Pryor Sr. WAS 5700 SF@WAS 01:00PM ET 9.4 Should get some good looks deep in this game.
23 Emmanuel Sanders DEN 6100 NYG@DEN 08:30PM ET 12.75 Tough matchup but they will have the ball a lot.
24 Demaryius Thomas DEN 6000 NYG@DEN 08:30PM ET 10.675 Should see less of Janoris Jenkins, but that’s a guess.
25 Rishard Matthews TEN 5400 IND@TEN 08:30PM ET 10.82
26 Danny Amendola NE 5600 NE@NYJ 01:00PM ET 14.675
27 Marvin Jones Jr. DET 4600 DET@NO 01:00PM ET 8.88
28 John Brown ARI 4500 TB@ARI 04:05PM ET 8.833
29 Amari Cooper OAK 5000 LAC@OAK 04:25PM ET 6.16 Carr returns so maybe Cooper can get back on track. He’s crazy cheap if you are feeling gutsy.
30 Cooper Kupp LAR 4000 LAR@JAX 04:05PM ET 10.4
31 Jermaine Kearse NYJ 4800 NE@NYJ 01:00PM ET 12.4

37 Ricardo Louis CLE 3900 CLE@HOU 01:00PM ET 7.08
38 Sammy Watkins LAR 4100 LAR@JAX 04:05PM ET 10.02
39 Jeremy Maclin BAL 4400 CHI@BAL 01:00PM ET 8.78 Sore shoulder but expected to play. Confirm his game day status before locking him in.

54 Adam Humphries TB 4000 TB@ARI 04:05PM ET 9.425

89 Stefon Diggs MIN 7500 GB@MIN 01:00PM ET 17.86 Sore groin and QB downgrade again. Risky play this week unless he practices tomorrow. ***OUT***

92 DeVante Parker MIA 6200 MIA@ATL 01:00PM ET 12.15 No practice (ankle), so not looking good to play this week. Will upgrade him if he practices tomorrow.
93 Alshon Jeffery PHI 6300 PHI@CAR 08:25PM ET 11.72 (ALREADY PLAYED) Like him here.
94 Kelvin Benjamin CAR 6400 PHI@CAR 08:25PM ET 10.64 (ALREADY PLAYED) Great matchup for him.
95 Devin Funchess CAR 6100 PHI@CAR 08:25PM ET 13.78 (ALREADY PLAYED) Playing well and this is a good matchup.
