Week 2 Fantasy Football Wide Receiver PPR Rankings
NFL 

Everyone pictures Julian Edelman when they think of PPR fantasy football leagues, but 2020 brings the most uncertainty he’s ever had because he’s a long way from Tom Brady. Combine that with a long trip to Seattle in Week 2, and a PPR stalwart like Edelman is actually on the start ’em, sit ’em bubble. There isn’t yet a lot to read into when it comes to the wide receiver rankings beyond a number of early injuries, so some of your lineup calls will undoubtedly cause you to second guess yourserlf.

Before we go any further, don’t just sit Edelman or a veteran like A.J. Green and Brandin Cooks for just anyone. Likely, you can still use them in a flex spot, especially if your league has three regular WR slots. But with new/young quarterbacks throwing to all three of those players, it could be worth considering other options.

Who should you consider? Maybe Sammy Watkins, for starters. He received a team-high nine targets for the Chiefs on Thursday night and turned it into seven catches and a touchdown. He’s still available in more than 50 percent of Yahoo leagues. Rookie Henry Ruggs III was heavily involved in the Raiders offense, and second-year receiver Parris Campbell showed a great Week 1 rapport with Philip Rivers. Scotty Miller stepped up for the Bucs, while Jamison Crowder blew up for the Jets.

Further down the sleeper list for Week 2, you could give a shot to Cole Beasley with a friendly matchup in Miami or Corey Davis in what could be a blowout of the Jaguars. We’re always inclined to make big changes in favor of possession WRs in PPR rankings, but ultimately it comes down to touchdowns and yards and targets as much as it does receptions, at least for WRs. It’s fair to examine players like Edelman and Golden Tate for their roles, offenses, and matchups even though they’ve been PPR auto-starts for a long time, but the truth is you just might not have better options.

For those of you in deep PPR leagues, it’s worth noting that both Las Vegas’ Hunter Renfrow and Atlanta’s Russell Gage saw ample snaps as No. 3 WRs. Both are better plays in PPR leagues than standard formats. Rookie WR Quintez Cephus of the Lions also might matter if Kenny Golladay (hamstring) remains injured..
