Our Week 2 fantasy WR PPR rankings once again look similar to our standard set, and that’s partially because, as you’ll ready in almost all of our Week 2 articles, we don’t want to overreact too much to the opening week’s results. That’s especially important at wide receiver, where one big play can really change a player’s outlook. While big plays are obviously great, they’re less reliable week-to-week. Targets are what we crave in PPR, and we just don’t have a big enough sample yet to feel comfortable saying certain players will consistently be “highly targeted.”
Notice we said “certain players.” Regardless of what happened last week, we’re banking on Davante Adams (vs. Lions), Chris Godwin (vs. Atlanta), DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett (vs. Titans), and Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb (@ Chargers) to put up big reception totals this week in favorable matchups. You don’t need us to tell you to start them, though.
Further down the list, Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick (@ Jaguars) look good, especially with Jerry Jeudy (ankle) out. Diontae Johnson and JuJu Smith-Schuster (vs. Raiders) should have a better days, while all Bengals WRs are also in play in Chicago. Tyler Boyd is a bit of a worry, but he’s usually better in PPR. We’ll see if he can bounce back. Jakobi Meyers and Nelson Agholor (@ Jets) should also be especially good PPR options, while Jarvis Landry (vs. Texans) will creep into WR3 range whether Odell Beckham Jr. (knee) plays or not.
As for sit candidates all Colts (vs. Rams), and Falcons not named Calvin Ridley (@ Buccaneers) should probably see your bench. It’s tough to get too excited about any Bills other than Stefon Diggs despite Buffalo airing it out frequently. That looks like a situation where we won’t know who will step up from game to game, making it tough to trust any (again, other than Diggs). Against Miami, that’s certainly the case. The Giants WRs are risky against Washington, though Sterling Shepard could be a volume flex in PPR. We’re not huge fans of any of the Jaguars against Denver, but perhaps they’ll rack up garbage-time points again.
Be sure to explore the depths of this list if you’re in a deep leagues. Wide receivers always run really deep with fantasy-relevant options, so do your due diligence. The difference between guys in the 40-50 range often isn’t that much different than 60-70, even if it looks like it is. That’s especially true heading into Week 2.
We’ll be updating these WR PPR rankings as needed throughout the week, so check back for the latest changes and analysis.
