Fantasy Football: Week Three Wide Receiver Rankings & Daily League Plays

by Michael Pichan (@FantasyNomad)

Daily League WR Targets:

Tier One WR Target:

  • Lions WR Calvin Johnson ($14,882 14.9% of your cap at Star Fantasy - Play Now)- If you are ever gonna spend on Megatron this week is the week versus arguably the worst pass defense in all of the NFL in the Washington Redskins. If you want to go a little cheaper consider a Denver wide out or Victor Cruz (13% of your cap) versus a depleted Carolina Panther secondary.

Wide Receiver Value Plays: Wide Outs Outside the top 10 in terms of price on Daily Fantasy Sites (DFS)

  • Rams WR Tavon Austin($5,900, 11.8% of your cap at Draft Kings - Play Now)- Cowboys have allowed the fourth most Fantasy Points to wide receivers and Austin has shown the ability to go across the middle, out jump a defensive back along the sidelines, and had five red zone targets last week.
  • Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins ($5,200, 14.9% of your cap at Fan Duel - Play Now)-This may be the last week you will be able to roster Hopkins at a discounted rate.
  • Lions WR Nate Burleson ($6,100, 6.1% of your cap at Draft Day - Play Now)-This may be the last week you will be able to roster Hopkins at a discounted rate.
