Week 3 Fantasy Football Wide Receiver PPR Rankings

We’d love it for Michael Thomas, Chris Godwin, and the many other big-name WRs nursing injuries to return to the field and resume their normal fantasy stardom, but it’s been a weird year and so far, the fantasy gods aren’t sparing anyone. As we put together our Week 3 fantasy WR PPR rankings, we’re hoping for good health while also planning ahead for the potential impact of more inactives.

Volume isn’t as predictable as we’d like to think, though. With Godwin (concussion) out in Week 2, Scotty Miller looked like an obvious play in PPR formats. Instead, he had two catches and surely let some of you down. The worst part is that Miller could bounce back for another six-catch game in Week 3, but he’ll likely be back on your bench. At least in Tampa, we know there’s a quarterback and scheme worth betting on.

WEEK 3 STANDARD RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

That’s not the only crowded WR situation to stress over. CeeDee Lamb had six catches for 106 yards in Week 2, but he’s just as likely to disappear in Week 3 as he is to repeat it. Diontae Johnson has been one of our favorite PPR players early on — he runs so many crossing routes for Pittsburgh — but his Week 1 showed he’s as likely to disappoint as he is to succeed like he did in Week 2. 

WEEK 3 PPR RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

How about some good news? Chris Hogan and Braxton Berrios both entered themselves into the streamer conversation. They’re both worth considering as possession receivers for you PPR owners that might’ve had Jamison Crowder (hamstring) or Breshad Perriman (ankle). D.J. Moore and Robby Anderson were both heavily involved for the Panthers on Sunday, too, with Moore catching eight passes and Anderson going against his brand to catch nine for 109. It’s good to remember they’ll likely matter to that extent in games where Carolina is the heavy underdog.

Plenty of other players took advangage of injuries in Week 2, from Adam Humphries in Tennessee to Golden Tate in New York. A few other players have popped up on the PPR radar, like Damaire Byrd in New England and Isaiah Ford in Miami. It’s tough to count on consistency from these types of players, but given all of the injuries, you might need to dig deep for these types of sleepers this week.

Note: Check back all week leading up to kickoff, as we’ll continue to update our WR rankings based on the latest news and injuries.
