Week 11 Fantasy WR PPR Rankings: Must-starts, sleepers, potential busts

Our Week 11 fantasy WR PPR rankings are loaded at the top thanks to some highly favorable matchups for several studs. The WR2/3 tiers are a different story, though, as several normally reliable players are falling and a few somewhat-risky sleepers are rising. 

Among that group of worrisome receivers are all the Rams (@ Buccaneers), all the Buccaneers (vs. Rams), all Texans (vs. Patriots), all Bengals (@ Washington), and all Lions (@ Panthers). That’s as many as 11 starters facing tough matchups. That doesn’t mean you’re going to bench Cooper Kupp, Chris Godwin, Will Fuller, or Tyler Boyd, as they are good enough to break a big play against anyone, but you’re at least thinking twice about them giving some of their disappointing recent performances. Some of the other receivers in that group, namely Tee Higgins, Antonio Brown, Mike Evans, and Kenny Golladay (if active), carry extra value in PPR leagues because of frequent targets, but they’re also on the start-sit bubble.

Further down you’ll find the bigger worries, such as Jerry Jeudy and Tim Patrick (vs. Dolphins), Allen Lazard and Marquez Valdes-Scantling (@ Colts), T.Y. Hilton (vs. Packers), and Corey Davis (@ Ravens). Jeudy has seen a lot of targets lately, so he might still have value in PPR leagues, but it’s tough to trust the rest. With the Bills, 49ers, Giants, and Bears on bye, that means plenty of owners will be looking for WR3 (and possible WR2) fill-ins, especially with reliable, high-target receivers like Stefon Diggs, Allen Robinson, Darnell Mooney, Sterling Shepard, Cole Beasley, and Brandon Aiyuk out.

Fortunately, favorable matchups open the door for several sleepers. Jakobi Meyers (@ Texans), who was a PPR machine in Weeks 8 and 9 and threw a touchdown in Week 10, Jalen Reagor (@ Browns), Marquise Brown (vs. Titans), Nelson Agholor (vs. Chiefs), Curtis Samuel (vs. Lions), Sammy Watkins (@ Raiders), and Michael Gallup (@ Vikings) all have favorable matchups, even if some aren’t exactly high reception guys. 

Larry Fitzgerald (@ Seahawks), Jakeem Grant (@ Broncos), KJ Hamler (vs. Dolphins), Greg Ward Jr. (@ Browns), Willie Snead (vs. Titans), and Russell Gage (@ Saints) might actually have higher floors (though Gage has fallen off lately). If you really want to go boom or bust, you can go all-in on Mecole Hardman and Demarcus Robinson (@ Raiders) or Henry Ruggs (vs. Chiefs). 

PPR scoring adds several more viable options to an already stacked set of rankings, so fantasy owners shouldn’t have a problem filling out their receiver spots despite the byes claiming several starters. It might be a slightly lower-scoring week than usual for your WR3 spot, but there will be plenty of catches to go around.
