Fantasy Fox: Top 50 PPR wide receivers for Week 3

Slumping wideout Keenan Allen (10 catches, 92 yards) is an excellent bet for big numbers against the Bills -- in the neighborhood of double-digit targets, 95 yards and maybe two touchdowns.

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

For the time being, we’ll assume that A.J. Green (toe injury) sits against the Titans. We also might add Wes Welker (reinstated from suspension) later in the week.

This countdown doesn’t lean on a particular stat. It’s merely an educated best guess of which pass-catchers will tally the best combination of receptions, receiving yards, touchdowns and targets for the NFL’s third weekend.
