2016 Fantasy Football PPR Rankings: Week 12 Wide Receivers

Figure out all those tough WR questions with our Week 12 rankings

It’s blackout Wednesday. I don’t have the mental capacity or time for anything clever, witty, or inspiring right now. Good luck.

Tier 1 – Potential Top Scorers 


1) Antonio Brown (PIT) @ IND


Tier 1.5


2) Julio Jones (ATL) vs. ARI

3) Amari Cooper (OAK) vs. CAR

4) Dez Bryant (DAL) vs. WAS

5) Odell Beckham Jr. (NYG) @ CLE


Tier 2 – Remaining WR1s


6) Doug Baldwin (SEA) @ TB

7) Jordy Nelson (GB) @ PHI

8) Larry Fitzgerald (ARI) @ ATL

9) Julian Edelman (NE) @ NYJ

10) Stefon Diggs (MIN) @ DET – Diggs missed practice on Tuesday, and needs to be monitored. Adam Thielen makes a great back up plan, as Detroit is horrendous. If Diggs does suit up, he’s a high-end play after catching 13 balls for 80 yards and a TD against them just two weeks ago.


Tier 2.5 


11) Brandin Cooks (NO) vs. LA

12) Mike Evans (TB) vs. SEA

13) Kelvin Benjamin (CAR) OAK

14) Michael Crabtree (OAK) vs. CAR

15) Allen Robinson (JAC) @ BUF


Tier 3 – WR2s


16) Jarvis Landry (MIA) vs. SF

17) Jordan Matthews (PHI) vs. GB

18) Demaryius Thomas (DEN) vs. KC

19)  Jamison Crowder (WAS) @ DAL

20) Michael Thomas (NO) vs. LA

21) Terrelle Pryor (CLE) vs. NYG

22) Steve Smith (BAL) vs. CIN

23) Davante Adams (GB) @ PHI


Tier 4 – WR3s


24) Brandon Marshall (NYJ) vs. NE

25) DeAndre Hopkins (HOU) vs. SD

26) Sterling Shepard (NYG) @ CLE

27) Mike Wallace (BAL) vs. CIN

28) Tyrell Williams (SD) @ HOU

Tier 4.5


29) Emmanuel Sanders (DEN) vs. KC

30) T.Y. Hilton (IND) vs. PIT – Against a strong secondary and with  Scott Tolzein at QB, Hilton is borderline benchable if you have the depth.

31) Donte Moncrief (IND) vs. PIT – Perhaps a better play than Hilton given his more possession-based game.

32) Tyler Boyd (CIN) @ BAL – A sneaky blow up candidate

33) Cole Beasley (DAL) vs. WAS

34) Pierre Garcon (WAS) @ DAL

35) Golden Tate (DET) vs. MIN

36) Randall Cobb (GB) @ PHI


Tier 5 – Last startable names


37) Kenny Britt (LA) @ NO

38) Cameron Meredith (CHI) vs. TEN

39) Willie Snead (NO) vs. LA

40) Marvin Jones (DET) vs. MIN

41) DeSean Jackson (WAS) @ DAL

42) Devante Parker (MIA) vs. SF

43) Eli Rogers (PIT) @ IND

44) Brandon LaFell (CIN) @ BAL

45) Adam Thielen (MIN) @ DET

46) Corey Coleman (CLE) vs. NYG


Tier 6 – I am Cold and I am shamed


47) Eddie Royal (CHI) vs. TEN

48) Quincy Enunway (NYJ) vs. NE

49) Michael Floyd  (ARI) @ ATL
