2020 Fantasy Football Rankings: Wide receivers for Week 16

Ranking the top 48 receivers for Week 15 fantasy football.

NFL: Cleveland Browns at Tennessee Titans Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Here are my Week 16 wide receiver fantasy football rankings. There are plenty of great matchups this week to take advantage of in your fantasy leagues.

Jarvis Landry has been the WR10 in .5PPR the last four weeks and I’m going to rank him as such with the Browns facing the Jets this week. Yes the Jets won a game last week but they used up all their energy and good karma and dumb luck to do so and so now are going to be worse than ever this week.

I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to put some respect on Marvin Jones Jr.’s name but I’m doing it this week, ranking him ahead of A.J. Brown vs the Packers and DK Metcalf vs the Rams. The Buccaneers have been downright bad against opposing receivers as of late and Jones has been downright amazing in fantasy as of late. The two make a delightful holiday cocktail of fantasy success.

Adam Thielen gets a big bump down facing the Saints and being usurped by Justin Jefferson in my opinion. Thielen has become slightly touchdown dependent recently—he’s seen only seven total targets the last two weeks—while the rookie Jefferson is getting the bulk of the passing game work—19 targets last two weeks.

With no Michael Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders is a WR2 against the Vikings.

I’m big on Darnell Mooney this week after four solid weeks of production. The Jaguars are a hot dumpster fire of a mess so I expect the Bearsaissance to continue this week and Mooney to have another solid fantasy outing.

D.J. Chark and Tyler Boyd, show me something.
