Your WR top 80 7.0 is here! Now we not only have to deal with injuries, we have to account for COVID inactives and postponements. Tier 2 got bigger, but until the elites we are waiting on return, tier 1 remains a two man show. As a rule, injuries will always bump guys down. I am generally pessimistic that players will return on time at full strength without a setback. 

This list is not league or format specific, but it is based on 2020 rest-of-season projection only. When thinking through tiers and rankings I asked myself simply – “all things considered who would I rather have on my roster?”

Rank Change Name Team Notes

2   Tyreek Hill KC  
    Tier 2

10 -4 Tyler Lockett SEA

13 -3 Allen Robinson CHI Very few receivers see the targets ARob does
    Tier 3    
14 +14 Robby Anderson CAR Locked in as a WR2 and that may not be high enough; TDs should come
15 +2 Robert Woods LAR Finally scoring touchdowns but the volume has dried up
16   Will Fuller HOU The boom week hasn’t hit yet but he also hasn’t had a healthy game under 15 PPR points
17 +4 CeeDee Lamb DAL 2nd on the team in targets but leading in yards; quick ascension for the stud rookie

19 -7 Keenan Allen LAC Scored on MNF but left with a back injury

39   Marquise Brown BAL  
40 +13 Mike Williams LAC Can Herbert unlock Williams’ awesome ceiling? need those 2 target games to go away
    Tier 6

    Tier 8    
59 -3 Jalen Reagor PHI Hard to find updates on his return from IR
60 -1 Gabriel Davis BUF Will skyrocket if John Brown has an extended absence

    Would do you like ROS?
    Godwin or J Jones

    Sorry, let me rephrase… I see your ranking on them.
    Would you trade Godwin for Jones?
    Looking for upside ROS.

      I honestly don’t think I would. Upside is similar and Jones’ injury outlook worries me more. Maybe it’s the age? I just have a baAaad feeling

    Week Six, PPR, Deebo, Hardman or. Demarcus Robinson?

      Are you a dog or fave?

      If you need a boom, Hardman

      If you just want a secure 8-10 go Deebo or DRob depending on if we hear how he’ll be used. But I’ve seen it on twitter and I agree he’s the more likely replacement For Watkins’ role

    Diontae Johnson just hit the waivers. I’m fairly deep at WR, but weak at RB.

    WR – Hill, Lockett, Godwin, Hollywood, Jefferson
    RB – Montgomery, Mostert, Ingram, Edmonds

    I can start 2 WR, 2 RB, and 1 flex. Mostly been going with 3 WR sets.

    Thinking of dropping Ingram for Johnson. And trying to trade Hill for an RB (no guarantees on that though…). I’m 1-4 swinging for the fences and need to roll the dice.

    Who’s the drop?

    Al…err, Fred…

    Who do you like more both ROS and as a keeper, ignoring roster construct?

    $11 CeeDee Lamb or $8 Antonio Gibson.
