2020 Fantasy Football Rankings: Wide receivers for Week 15

Ranking the top 48 receivers for Week 15 fantasy football.

NFL: Indianapolis Colts at Las Vegas Raiders Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Here are my Week 15 wide receiver fantasy football rankings. There are plenty of great matchups this week to take advantage of in your fantasy leagues.

I said in my roasts & ghosts article this week it would be hard for me not to rank Brandon Aiyuk as a WR1 and actually, it was a lot easier than I expected to rank him this high. He’s been so reliable recently and the Cowboys have been so bad all year long I just have to think we’re in for another 15/10-90-1 stat line for the rookie receiver.

I’m punishing the Vikings pass catchers ever so slightly this week for their dud against the Buccaneers and for their tough matchup against the Bears. That being said, last time they played the Bears this season, Adam Thielen scored two touchdowns and Justin Jefferson went off for 130 yards or so. You’re not getting away from these guys in the most important games of the year.

Welp, he’s done it. T.Y. Hilton has been showing me something for the last three weeks and by jingo, it’s about time I start giving him the love he deserves. Of course now he’s going to absolutely disappear and Michael Pittman Jr. will rule supreme but hey, I’m putting my faith in Hilton to keep going off against a bad Texans defense.

I feeeeeeel like this could be an Antonio Brown breakout game but I’m just not totally sold. The targets have been evenly shared across the Bucs pass catchers which does seem to put a cap on everyone, but the Falcons are bad enough were all three receivers (Brown, Mike Evans, and Chris Godwin) could post solid fantasy outings. We shall see.

With Marquise Brown AND Miles Boykin on COVID-19, I’m giving Willie Snead a big ol’ bump for that. We’ve seen Snead be productive before this season and against the Jaguars, I wouldn’t be shocked if he managed to come down with a touchdown.
