2018 Fantasy Football Rankings: Week 20 WR Rankings
Scoring: These rankings are based on standard-scoring formats -- one point per 10 rushing yards, six points per rushing touchdown plus one point per 10 receiving yards and six points per receiving touchdown. These rankings are for Week 20 of the 2018 NFL season.
Our Week 20 Fantasy Football Wide Receiver Rankings from Kevin Hanson:
1. Michael Thomas, New Orleans Saints (vs. LAR)
Posting a franchise-record 1,405 receiving yards this season, Thomas had another big outing (12/171/1) to kick off the postseason. Abusing Marcus Peters for a 12/211/1 line in Week 9, Thomas should once again be peppered with targets even if he sees more Aqib Talib than Peters.
2. Tyreek Hill, Kansas City Chiefs (vs. NE)
With eight catches on 13 targets, both of which were team highs, Hill finished with 72 receiving yards and added a 36-yard rushing touchdown in Saturday's win over the Colts. Leading the position in fantasy points in 2018, no receiver has more upside in the Conference Championships round.
3. Robert Woods, Los Angeles Rams (at NO)
Setting career highs across the board, Woods finished the year with 86/1,219/6 receiving and added 157 rushing yards and a seventh score in the regular season. Woods has been a model of consistency and upside. Excluding Week 17, Woods has exceeded 60 receiving yards in 15 of his past 16 games including Saturday's win over the Cowboys.
4. Julian Edelman, New England Patriots (at KC)
Edelman had nine catches for 151 yards on 13 targets in the Divisional Round win over the Chargers. In 13 games counting the playoffs, Edelman has 83 catches for 1,001 yards and six touchdowns plus 107 rushing yards on the season. Edelman has more than 50 scrimmage yards and/or a touchdown in every game this season.
5. Brandin Cooks, Los Angeles Rams (at NO)
Exceeding the 1,000-yard mark in each of the past four seasons, Cooks had a career-high 1,204 receiving yards. Coming off a relatively quiet performance (4/65 on six targets) in the Divisional Round, Cooks had 6/114/1 in the matchup against his former team earlier this year.
6. Josh Reynolds, Los Angeles Rams (at NO)
One of the few teams in the NFL that can support three viable fantasy wide receivers, Reynolds has a couple of two-TD games in the second half of the season with Cooper Kupp sidelined. Behind the strength of the team's running game, however, there is also the chance that Reynolds posts another 1/19 line (like last week).
7. Sammy Watkins, Kansas City Chiefs (vs. NE)
Missing almost two months, Watkins (foot) returned to the field on Saturday and had six catches for 62 yards. The third option (at best) in the passing game, the talented wideout still has the potential for a big game in Kansas City's high-octane offense, especially considering that the Patriots will focus on slowing Hill and Kelce more than Watkins.
8. Chris Hogan, New England Patriots (at KC)
Hogan had just three catches for 13 yards on Sunday and he's generally been a disappointment compared to expectations. With 60-plus yards in two of his past four games, Hogan is little more than a GPP dart throw.
9. Ted Ginn Jr., New Orleans Saints (vs. LAR)
Ginn had three catches for 44 yards and could have had a much bigger game on Sunday. In an expected shootout, the potential for (at least) one big play is reasonably high.
Here are the best of the rest:
10. Cordarrelle Patterson, New England Patriots (at KC)
11. Chris Conley, Kansas City Chiefs (vs. NE)
12. Phillip Dorsett, New England Patriots (at KC)
13. Keith Kirkwood, New Orleans Saints (vs. LAR)
14. Tre'quan Smith, New Orleans Saints (vs. LAR)
15. Austin Carr, New Orleans Saints (vs. LAR)
