Welcome to the Week 9 Wide Receiver Rankings. I’ll be back in a little bit with the tight ends.

Holy smokes. I have never seen such a gross collection of receivers in all my days. So many passing games are damaged or on the bye that there’s really not much left in the way of good starts.

Once you get past the top 12, it just gets ugly, and the top 12 are relatively weak too. The only good news I have for you is that your opponents are going to be feeling the same pain as you will.

I can already tell that Friday is going to be receivers day. I am going to drill down as many of the WR/CB matchups as I can and try to find some separation between the guys in the teens and the guys in the 30s, but right now, it’s pretty much the wild west.

As far as tonight’s game goes, the Jets starters are decent WR3 options—both Jermaine Kearse and Robby Anderson. For the Bills, Kelvin Benjamin will not play, so we are looking at Jordan Matthews, Zay Jones and probably Deonte Thompson. Matthews is the best play and Thompson is worth a flex flier for desperate owners.

These rankings will be updated on Saturday and perhaps on Friday as well.

Bye losses:

  • Patriots
  • Steelers
  • Chargers
  • Vikings
  • Bears
  • Browns

These rankings are based on .5 PPR scoring.

Rank PLAYER TEAM Cost Matchup PPG THE SKINNY
1 Mike Evans TB 7700 TB@NO 11/05/2017 01:00PM ET 16.414 A nice safe play regardless of which QB is under center for them.
2 Michael Thomas NO 7200 TB@NO 11/05/2017 01:00PM ET 14.571 Great matchup for him. He’s been solid but not spectacular this year. I think that could change thsi week.
3 Julio Jones ATL 7800 ATL@CAR 11/05/2017 01:00PM ET 14.286 On a week like this one, Julio is a great guy to have—even with his struggles this year.
4 Dez Bryant DAL 6400 KC@DAL 11/05/2017 04:25PM ET 13.229 Practicing fully now (knee) so he should be good to go.
5 A.J. Green CIN 7400 CIN@JAX 11/05/2017 01:00PM ET 17.743 Very tough matchup.
6 Doug Baldwin SEA 6900 WAS@SEA 11/05/2017 04:05PM ET 14.529 If he can avoid Norman, he’ll be fine.
7 DeAndre Hopkins HOU 9200 IND@HOU 11/05/2017 01:00PM ET 21.943 Big downgrade due to Watson’s injury. Such a bummer as he’s been playing lights out football.
8 Tyreek Hill KC 6700 KC@DAL 11/05/2017 04:25PM ET 15.563 Great matchup.
9 Amari Cooper OAK 6600 OAK@MIA 11/05/2017 08:30PM ET 11.975 Good road matchup.
10 Michael Crabtree OAK 6500 OAK@MIA 11/05/2017 08:30PM ET 15.729 Good road matchup.
11 Golden Tate DET 6300 DET@GB 11/06/2017 08:30PM ET 14.686 He’s got his QB so he’s viable.
12 Larry Fitzgerald ARI 5900 ARI@SF 11/05/2017 04:05PM ET 16.771 He’s got a good matchup this week so use him with so few great options in the Week 9 field.
13 T.Y. Hilton IND 4900 IND@HOU 11/05/2017 01:00PM ET 11.588 He’s got a shot. That makes you a WR2 this week. It’s crazy.
14 DeVante Parker MIA 6100 OAK@MIA 11/05/2017 08:30PM ET 12.15 Should return this week and it’s a good matchup.
15 Jordy Nelson GB 5800 DET@GB 11/06/2017 08:30PM ET 13.186 So hard to tell what he’s worth right now, but the drop-off from Rodgers is obviously huge.
16 Marvin Jones Jr. DET 5600 DET@GB 11/06/2017 08:30PM ET 12.543 Has a real QB and a solid matchup. WR2.
17 Jarvis Landry MIA 6300 OAK@MIA 11/05/2017 08:30PM ET 15.3 Practicing fully, so a solid bet to post some digits.
18 Demaryius Thomas DEN 6000 DEN@PHI 11/05/2017 01:00PM ET 11.786 Osweiler. The Broncos are tilting.
19 Sammy Watkins LAR 4200 LAR@NYG 11/05/2017 01:00PM ET 8.486 Like him this week with Janoris Jenkins out.
20 Alshon Jeffery PHI 5300 DEN@PHI 11/05/2017 01:00PM ET 11.45 Bad matchup but he has a real QB so he’s a WR2.
21 DeSean Jackson TB 5500 TB@NO 11/05/2017 01:00PM ET 11.386 Great matchup in the dome.
22 Paul Richardson SEA 4700 WAS@SEA 11/05/2017 04:05PM ET 13.2 Should be WR3 level but this week, he’s a WR2.
23 Tyler Lockett SEA 4600 WAS@SEA 11/05/2017 04:05PM ET 9.7 Looked good last week. Same basic reasoning as T-Rich for this week ranking.
24 Devin Funchess CAR 5400 ATL@CAR 11/05/2017 01:00PM ET 10.838 He’s the number one now.
25 Cooper Kupp LAR 4500 LAR@NYG 11/05/2017 01:00PM ET 10.371 Solid matchup and he’s been getting consistent love from Goff.
26 Ted Ginn Jr. NO 5000 TB@NO 11/05/2017 01:00PM ET 12.043 Plenty of upside in this one.
27 Emmanuel Sanders DEN 5700 DEN@PHI 11/05/2017 01:00PM ET 12.72 He’s playing with Osweiler. Unreal how many WRs are damaged by second rate QBs at this point.
28 Davante Adams GB 5400 DET@GB 11/06/2017 08:30PM ET 13.586 QB trouble.
29 Will Fuller V HOU 7000 IND@HOU 11/05/2017 01:00PM ET 21.7 Big downgrade due to Watson’s injury. He’s playing well so viable in this week’s plus matchup.
