Fantasy Fox: Top 50 PPR wideouts for Week 3

Here are my top 50 wide receivers for Week 3, citing Points Per Reception leagues.

This countdown, for the most part, projects the greatest combination of catches, yards, targets and touchdowns, among wideouts, for the NFL’s third weekend.

One special note: In six years of doing PPR rankings, this may be the first time Larry Fitzgerald has ever appeared outside the top 25 — even through last year’s brutal QB shuffle of Kevin Kolb, Ryan Lindley, John Skelton and Brian Hoyer.

But it’s very hard to dominate with a bad hammy. Sorry, Larry.
