The first week of playoffs is in the books and if you made it to Week 16 I have the perfect wide receiver rankings list for you. This list will lead you into the championship and give you bragging rights for the year.

Just as a reminder if you haven’t seen the last few weeks of rankings, this list is based on half PPR scoring.

Wide Receiver Notes:

  • I have Tyreek Hill back in the top three this week. Last week he went above and beyond against the Chargers. This week he has the Steelers who giving up over 20 fantasy points a game to wide receivers this season. This will be the last week Hill will go off so, I expect everyone to start him this week to send you into the championship round.
  • Antonio Brown is back in the hot seat now with Chris Godwin out for the season. The Panthers do have a solid defense this year, but now that Godwin is out, Brown jumps up in the rankings. He is running under the radar since he hasn’t played much the last few weeks. But, if you look at his first five weeks he had over 400 yards and four touchdowns.  Make sure to start him this week if you want to win.
  • Lastly, Russell Gage is a low-key sleeper for the week. He has the Lions this week who are middle of the road when it comes to defending the pass. But, Gage has been on point when it comes to fantasy points. He has scored in the double digits three of the last four weeks. In those four weeks, he has averaged over 86 yards a game. He is getting his targets and will go off against Detroit this week.
