Wide receiver rankings for Divisional Round fantasy football

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

Friday AM update:

Sammy Watkins remained out of practice on Thursday. He will likely need to practice on Friday to have a chance to face the Browns this week.

Cooper Kupp is listed as questionable with his knee injury. He will likely play, but might not be as effective as normal.

Chris Godwin and Mike Evans continue to be limited in practice, but also on track to play against the Saints. It would be good to see both get full practices in on Friday.

Both Cole Beasley and Stefon Diggs have been removed from the injury report and are good to go against the Ravens.

Tre’Quan Smith returned to practice on Wednesday and appears to be on track to play this weekend.


The Steelers wide receivers went off on Wild Card weekend as Ben Roethlisberger threw the ball a record 68 times, but since they didn’t move on, we’ll take a look at the winning receivers. Of those who moved on, Stefon Diggs, Jarvis Landry, Mike Evans, Michael Thomas and Chris Godwin were all productive fantasy receivers.

We get the Packers and Chiefs receivers back this week, meaning Tyreek Hill and Davante Adams are undoubtedly strong plays as usual. Hill gets the Browns while Adams will face the Rams, so Hill gets the nod this week. But Adams can’t be shut down and stays high in the rankings.

Chris Godwin saw the most targets of the receivers still playing, but had more drops than you’ll probably ever see again from him. He did catch 5-fo-12 targets for 79 yards and a touchdown. He and Mike Evans remain the top targets, but have had trouble against the Saints defense this season. They haven’t met since Week 9 and the Buccaneers have been playing better of late, so they may be ready to put up better numbers this week.

These rankings are based on .5 PPR scoring.
