As usual, there isn’t a ton of change in the wide receiver rankings when we go from standard to PPR.
This week we have some very interesting plays. Golden Tate and Mohamed Sanu will have increased opportunity this week and each have great matchups. Emmanuel Sanders has been terrific this season and has a stellar matchup against the Jets, who are 24th against opposing WR2s in 2014.
Seattle has been a showstopper against WR1s this season. Dez Bryant is the kind of wide receiver who can be matchup proof, but players in daily fantasy leagues should look at Terrance Williams. The Seahawks have given up the most yards to opposing WR2s this season (thanks in large part to DeSean “outlier” Jackson last week). Williams is no slouch as a WR2 and could be in for a big game.
Lastly, Torrey Smith has a great matchup. I think this is it. If we don’t see a big game this might be a lost season for the Ravens’ most talented wide receiver. Tampa Bay allows 9.2 passes and 91.7 receiving yards per game to WR1s.
