Week 1 Fantasy WR PPR Rankings: Should-starts, sleepers, potential busts

The theme of our standard-league Week 1 fantasy WR rankings was to guess on confirmed commodities over unproven rookies and younger gamers. That holds true in our PPR extensive receiver rankings — possibly much more so. When extra worth comes a participant’s means with every catch of a cross, it is usually the wideouts most comfy in an offense or most linked with their QB that make the most secure PPR performs. Whereas it might not be price getting enthusiastic about Julian Edelman, Dede Westbrook or Larry Fitzgerald, they might all have superior worth in PPR lineups versus commonplace leagues.
