Top WRs To Start in Week 5

Brandon Aiyuk, WR, San Francisco 49ers

When Brandon Aiyuk has been healthy this season, he has been incredibly productive in this San Francisco offense. He now has two games this season with over 120 receiving yards, and the connection with Brock Purdy is evident when you watch the games.

Dallas’ statistics are going to look inflated due to the matchups they’ve had so far this season, but this defense isn’t the same in the secondary without Trevon Diggs. Fire up Aiyuk as a solid play in Week 5.

DJ Moore, WR, Chicago Bears

We finally saw some signs of life from this Bears passing attack in Week 4 against the Denver Broncos. DJ Moore was able to end the game with eight receptions for 131 yards and a touchdown, which puts him on pace to finish as a top-12 WR on the week.

In Week 5, the Bears get a matchup against the Washington Commanders defense that is struggling to slow down opposing passing games right now. If Moore was on your bench in Week 4, that needs to be fixed here this week. Start him as a solid option with upside. He has the potential to rise up my rankings as we get closer to kickoff.
