Standard wide receiver rankings for Divisional round fantasy football

We take you through some of the best wide receivers going in the Divisional Round for fantasy football.

In standard leagues it is tough to put anyone ahead of Tyreek Hill against the Texans weak pass defense. Hill already went for 80 yards and two touchdowns against Houston earlier in the season and they will again have their hands full with the speedster.

Davante Adams is the only other receiver worth grabbing ahead of Hill, as he’s been a target monster and has also been finding the end zone of late, with five touchdowns in his last six games, whereas he had zero in his first six games.

The Chiefs held DeAndre Hopkins down for the most part in their first matchup but he was still a useful PPR player and we know his upside is much better than that. After those three studs it gets a little tougher to rank the remaining receivers. I like the Packers/Seahawks game to be fruitful for receivers, so I’ve crammed Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf in at 4 and 5 while the Vikings stud receivers move up based on their ability, not their matchup.
