2016 Fantasy Football PPR Rankings: Week 8 Wide Receivers

Bye Week hell is upon us, which is doubly concerning when it’s win or go home for many fantasy owners. No one wants their lone source of excitement and joy stripped from their life, so make sure you lock up a win with the best PPR rankings in the business.

Tier 1 – Potential Top Scorers

1. Julio Jones (ATL) vs. GB

2. Mike Evans (TB) vs. OAK

3. A.J. Green (CIN) vs. WAS

Tier 2 – High End WR1s

4. Brandon Marshall (NYJ) @ CLE

5. T.Y. Hilton (IND) vs. KC

6. DeAndre Hopkins (HOU) vs. DET

7. Larry Fitzgerald (ARI) @ CAR

8. Amari Cooper (OAK) @ TB

Tier 3 – Low-end WR1s, High-End WR2s

9. Jordy Nelson (GB) @ ATL – Big bounce back week for Jordy, especially if Cobb doesn’t play. Also could be “Panic Button” time if he doesn’t explode.

10. Doug Baldwin (SEA) @ NO

11. Michael Crabtree (OAK) @ TB

12. Marvin Jones (DET) @ HOU

13. Randall Cobb (GB) QUESTIONABLE – Cobb’s been crushing, but suffered a hamstring tweak and now needs to be monitored. The other Packers’ wideouts would see a stock increase should he sit…We’ve actually never seen a Jordy-Davante combo, which is slightly intriguing.

Tier 4 – Solid WR2s

14. Demaryius Thomas (DEN) vs. SD

15. Dez Bryant (DAL) vs. PHI – The Return of the Dez, one of Week 8’s most intriguing, and crucial, story line. His health and chemistry with Dak will be highly important to watch.

16. Kelvin Benjamin (CAR) vs. ARI

17. Julian Edelman (NE) @ BUF

18. Emmanuel Sanders (DEN) vs. SD

19. Donte Moncrief (IND) vs. KC – If he’s playing you have to roll him out. Huge TD upside.

20. Brandin Cooks (NO) vs. SEA

21. Allen Robinson (JAC) @ TEN

22. Terrelle Pryor (CLE) vs. NYJ

23. Ty Montgomery (GB) @ ATL

Tier 5 -Mid-end WR2s, High-end WR3s

24. Will Fuller (HOU) vs. DET

25. Davante Adams (GB) @ ATL

26. Alshon Jeffery (CHI) vs. MIN

27. Jeremy Maclin (KC) @ IND

28. Golden Tate (DET) @ HOU

Tier 6 – Last decent flex plays

29. Jordan Matthews (PHI) @ DAL

30. Cameron Meredith (CHI) vs. MIN

31. Quincy Enunwa (NYJ) @ CLE

32. Michael Thomas (NO) vs. SEA

33. Jamison Crowder (WAS) @ CIN

34. DeSean Jackson (WAS) @ CIN

35. Willie Snead (NO) vs. SEA

36. Stefon Diggs (MIN) @ CHI

37. Chris Hogan (NE) @ BUF

38. Brandon LaFell (CIN) vs. WAS

39. Michael Floyd (ARI) @ CAR

Tier 7 – Save me from the nothing I’ve become

40. Cole Beasley (DAL) vs. PHI

41. Tyler Lockett (SEA) @ NO

42. Tyrell Williams (SD) @ DEN

43. Travis Benjamin (SD) @ DEN

44. Mohamed Sanu (ATL) vs. GB

45. Anquan Boldin (DET) @ HOU

46. Russell Shepard (TB) vs. OAK

47. Adam Humphries (TB) vs. OAK – It will once again be the Mike Evans show, but either of these two is worth a Hail Mary flier against such an abysmal defense.

48. John Brown (ARI) vs. CAR

49. Marquise Goodwin (BUF) vs. NE

50. Allen Hurns (JAC) @ TEN
