Fantasy football rankings, Week 3: Consensus wide receivers for PPR leagues

The SB Nation fantasy staff rounds up the rankings for the top 50 wide receivers in PPR leagues.

We are two weeks into the season and everyone has three different outlooks on their team. You are either 2-0 flying high, 1-1 going to get back on track, or 0-2 in full panic mode. No matter what your outlook is, playing the correct wide receivers is crucial if you are in a PPR league.

Watch out for these guys who have been seen on the injury report this week:

Questionable: Julio Jones (Calf), Brandon Marshall (Knee), Sammy Watkins (Foot), Donte Moncrief (Shoulder), Eric Decker (Shoulder), Doug Baldwin (Knee)

Most of these guys are are just listed as questionable but will play through these injuries. Stay alert on the injury reports throughout the week and also formulate a backup plan in case that player doesn’t play.

Travis Benjamin and Marvin Jones are two under-the-radar guys who are projected to have a big Week 3. Make sure Larry Fitzgerald is in your lineup if he hasn’t been already, since he has found the fountain of youth in 2016.

Also, watch out for teams that lost quarterbacks in Week 2 like the Browns and Patriots. Both teams are going to lean on their running games and not put their young quarterbacks in position to succeed. Most of the time that doesn’t lead to big plays or fantasy numbers.
