The Top WRs To Start in Week 16

Garrett Wilson, New York Jets (vs. WAS)

Analysis by Kyle Soppe | Garrett Wilson saw a season-low four targets last week, and it resulted in his fifth finish outside of the top 40 receivers.

Of course, there is the other side of that coin that has Wilson finishing four weeks as a top-20 WR.

The Washington Commanders allow 30.2 points per game — the only defense allowing even 27 PPG — so I’m more likely to bet on Wilson’s potential than to get caught up in the downside that naturally comes as a part of this QB committee situation.

Wilson isn’t likely to be the top-12 WR that you drafted him to be this summer, but I do have confidence in him as a WR2 this week. I rank him in the same tier as Tee Higgins and Davante Adams, other top receivers on their team with question marks at QB.
