Fantasy football rankings 2017: Wide receivers in PPR leagues for NFL Week 5

Week 5 is upon us, and there’s been a bit of juggling that has gone on at the top of the wide receiver PPR rankings this week. Mike Evans and Jordy Nelson jump up from their usual spots with Evans going up against the Patriots and Nelson playing in Dallas. Nelson should see a jump in targets with Davante Adams and Ty Montgomery’s statuses still up in the air.

Antonio Brown and A.J. Green see only a slight drop in the rankings with tough home matchups against the Jaguars and Bills, respectively.

Also sliding down the rankings are Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree — couple Derek Carr’s injury and a rough game coming against the Ravens, those are two wideouts I’d avoid this week.

Some wide receiver groups to look at are Minnesota (namely Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen) and Miami (Javris Landry and DeVante Parker), have favorable matchup against Chicago and Tennessee, respectively.
