Injuries are shaking up the middle of our wide receiver rankings. We break down the top 50 options for Week 5 in PPR leagues.

Week 5 of the NFL season is upon us, and it’s time to get your fantasy football rosters squared away. If you’re in a points per reception league, the wide receiver position can offer considerable depth. We’re here to break down the top 50 wide receivers in PPR leagues as you consider matchups for this week’s schedule.

Keenan Allen was a massive bust in Week 4, but I’ comfortable going right back to him against the Broncos. Those 42 targets in the first three games speak more to the role Allen should have in this offense.

Julio Jones and DeAndre Hopkins are great options going against each other in Houston, but Michael Thomas should catch some eyes on DraftKings. He’s maintained a huge role in the offense, but the absence of Drew Brees has really slashed his price.

For value, the Davante Adams and John Ross injuries give us some value. Marquez Valdes-Scantling should be the WR1 for Green Bay, but has a tough matchup in Dallas. It’s super tough to trust the Bengals after MNF, but Tyler Boyd and Auden Tate should see huge target shares in a great matchup at home versus Arizona.
