Fantasy Football Week 5 WR Rankings

Can you trust Davante Adams moving forward? Was Cooper Kupp the best first-round pick of all time? What is the upside of Jaylen Waddle and Tyreek Hill with Teddy Bridgewater instead of Tua? All of this and more are answered in this week’s WR Rankings edition.

1. Cooper Kupp, Rams vs. Cowboys

It does not matter who is on Cooper Kupp, he is unguardable and produces at the highest level we have seen from a wide receiver in years, probably since Megatron. Easily the best WR in the NFL, Kupp seems to be a lock-it-in 30+ fantasy point scorer every week and is by far the safest and highest upside player in all of Fantasy Football. Trevon Diggs is about to give up 150 yards to Cooper Kupp next weekend, you can book it.

2. Justin Jefferson, Vikings vs. Bears

Justin Jefferson went off in London last weekend pulling in 10 catches for 147 yards with a 3-yard rushing touchdown silencing the haters that were concerned about Jefferson’s production after two 11 or under fantasy point weeks in a row. The Bears do not have a shutdown corner so expect Jefferson to burst for another big game.

3. Deebo Samuel, 49ers vs. Panthers

After Deebo Samuel‘s 119 yard with a touchdown performance in week 4 against a good Rams defense, it would be irresponsible to expect much regression against a much weaker Panthers team. Despite the offensive line injuries that have limited Samuel’s rushing attempts and yardage this season, Jimmy Garroppolo seems to always find the big play machine Samuel for big gains.

4. Stefon Diggs, Bills vs. Steelers

5. Ja’Marr Chase, Bengals vs. Ravens

6. Davante Adams, Raiders vs. Chiefs

7. Tyreek Hill, Dolphins vs. Jets

8. Mike Evans, Buccaneers vs. Falcons

In Sunday night’s 41-31 loss to the Chiefs, Mike Evans showed exactly how important he is to the Bucs’ offensive scheme and Tom Brady’s success as he pulled in two touchdowns and had 103 yards receiving for over 30 fantasy points against the Chiefs. Evans is going up against a much smaller A.J. Terrell Jr. on the Falcons this weekend and is poised for another big day if Brady gets it to him in the red zone.

9. CeeDee Lamb, Cowboys vs. Rams

10. A.J. Brown, Eagles vs. Cardinals

11. Amon-Ra St. Brown, Lions vs. Patriots

12. D.K. Metcalf, Seahawks vs. Saints

13. Keenan Allen, Chargers vs. Browns

14. Tee Higgins, Bengals vs. Ravens

15. Jaylen Waddle, Dolphins vs. Jets

16. Christian Kirk, Jaguars vs. Texans

17. Marquise Brown, Cardinals vs. Eagles

18. Chris Olave, Saints vs. Seahawks

19. Chris Godwin, Buccaneers vs. Falcons

20. Terry McLaurin, Commanders vs. Titans
