Wide receiver rankings for Wild Card fantasy football

We take you through some of the best wide receivers going in the Wild Card round.

Wednesday AM injury update

Terry McLaurin didn’t practice on Tuesday, as the team continues to manage his ankle injury. He will play against the Buccaneers after catching seven passes last week.

Stefon Diggs was estimated as limited with an oblique injury, but the Bills only went through a walkthrough on Wednesday. We hopefully will learn more about the severity of his injury soon, but at this time there doesn’t seem to be cause for concern.

Mike Evans was a participant at walkthrough on Thursday, but wouldn’t have practiced if they had a normal practice day. But, there is plenty of optimism that he’ll be able to go with his hyperextended leg against Washington.

Cooper Kupp appears on track to return to practice from the COVID-19 list and be ready to face the Seahawks.

Michael Thomas will return to a limited practice on Wednesday. He should be ready to go against the Bears.


With Davante Adams and Tyreek Hill on byes this week, Stefon Diggs is the clear frontrunner in the Wild Card rankings. After him, there are plenty of strong plays, but all have inconsistency, lesser quarterbacks or too much competition for targets.

The Buccaneers have three strong receivers, but picking the one who will get the most fantasy points can be tough. We’ll need to keep an eye on Mike Evans, who hyperextended his leg last week. He should be able to go, but I’d like to see him get a full practice in before going all in.

A.J. Brown doesn’t get the targets we’d like and he’s always landing awkwardly on his ankle or knee, but he also makes big plays too often not to like him no matter the matchup.

If Evans does appear to be completely healthy, Chris Godwin will move back down the rankings while Evans moves back up, so their rankings are still up in the air.

These rankings are based on .5 PPR scoring.
