Top 75 wide receiver standard rankings for Week 16 fantasy football

We take you through some of the best wide receivers going in Week 16 for fantasy football, including a few viable streamers.

The fantasy championships are here and you are here too, which means you are looking for help setting your championship lineup. That’s why we are here as well! (Insert Paul Rudd “Who would’ve thought?” gif)

Below we have your Week 16 wide receiver rankings to help you set those championship lineups. Good luck!

Injury/Status Report

Josh Gordon has been suspended. He hasn’t been seeing much work in Seattle, so this likely won’t have much of an impact on their fantasy projections.

Hunter Renfrow is expected to play this week against the Chargers. His presence hurts Darren Waller’s upside.

D.J. Chark has a chance to play this week. If he does, Chris Conley takes a hit.

Chris Godwin’s hamstring injury “doesn’t look good” according to Bruce Arians. He likely won’t be able to play, giving Breshad Perriman and Justin Watson plenty of work against the Texans.

WR Ranking Tiers

Tier 1

DeAndre Hopkins shouldn’t have any trouble against the Buccaneers pass defense and has a little more upside than Michael Thomas in standard leagues this week, but as usual, Thomas is always the safest play.

Tyreek Hill can beat any team and the Bears are any team. Patrick Mahomes proved last week that he is healthy and elite.

Tier 2

Breshad Perriman is hard to trust as a top play, even coming off a three touchdown game, but there are no other receivers Jameis Winston can rely on with Chris Godwin and Mike Evans out. Play him like you would any other stud in this great matchup.

Darius Slayton has come on strong to end the season and he should be able to keep it up against Washington’s below-average pass defense.

WR Streamers

As long as Nelson Agholor is out again, Greg Ward has a good chance to see big targets once again. He has 18 over the last two games and caught a touchdown last week.

Anthony Miller gets the best matchup of the Bears receivers this week and will be needed to keep up with the Chiefs strong offense.
