Week 8 PPR Rankings: WR
Our Week 8 PPR rankings for WRs lose a bit of depth because of the bye weeks. The Falcons and Chargers headline the teams that will be out of action this week, and the Cowboys, with their newfound weapon Amari Cooper, and Titans are also off this week. That said, in the PPR format, there are plenty of other guys who can step into action, as there are more than enough wide receivers who see a high volume of targets and can be started as WR3 or FLEX plays.
As is always the case, our PPR rankings are going to somewhat mirror the standard rankings. Most receivers are getting enough catches to retain their value in PPR, but there are a few guys, like Tyreek Hill and DeSean Jackson, who move down every week solely because a good chunk of their production comes on big plays. Conversely, guys like Jarvis Landry, Emmanuel Sanders, and Nelson Agholor usually move up because of their abilities to catch passes at a ridiculous clip. Consistent targets can really do a lot to help make players better in PPR.
Week 8 Standard Rankings:
Quarterback | Running Back | Wide Receiver | Tight End | D/ST | Kicker
One of the more interesting players to watch this week will be Cooper Kupp. He missed last week with a knee injury, but it’s possible he could return for this week’s game against the Packers. If he can’t get on the field, Robert Woods will move up the rankings. But for now, Kupp holds onto a space in our top 20. (UPDATE: Kupp is now listed as doubtful, so he has been removed from our PPR rankings).
