Wide Receiver Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 16

Adam Thielen returned in Week 15, but should have a better performance in Week 16

Fantasy owners are most likely now in the championship game. They are going to start the guys that got them there (for the most part), but injuries certainly play a role in that as well. The waiver wire may be benefical for those that lost Chris Godwin (hamstring) in Week 15. Breshad Perriman is likely still available, and while he probably won't score three touchdowns again, based on volume alone, he may be worth starting. Perriman is ranked No. 25 for Week 16 against Houston.

 

T.Y. Hilton and Adam Thielen returned in Week 15, but neither made much of a fantasy impact. Often, it's hard to trust a player in their first game back from a lengthy absence because of injury. Keep that in mind if JuJu Smith-Schuster (not ranked) does return in Week 16. Thielen is ranked No. 23 and Hilton No. 32 for Week 16. These guys were likely drafted as WR1s but they shouldn't be trusted as that in the fantasy championship.
