  • Sean Koerner -- the No. 1 in-season fantasy football ranker in 2015, 2016 and 2017 -- takes a detailed look at his Week 5 wide receiver tiers.
  • Use the strategies outlined below to build the most optimal starting lineup for your fantasy football team.

Below you’ll find my wide receiver tiers for Week 5 fantasy football. These are based on standard scoring.

As a reminder, these tiers are not updated after publication. If you want my most up-to-date rankings for PPR, Standard and Half-Point PPR leagues, check out this post.

And, yes, my tiers will be part of our Action Network subscription this season. Be sure to check out the awesome special we’re currently running below for an annual sub.

Koerner’s Wide Receiver Tiers

Tier 1
Antonio Brown (vs. ATL)

There always comes a point when a No. 1 WR sees some of his usage go to the No. 2 option. This appears to be happening with JuJu Smith-Schuster and Antonio Brown so far in 2018.

I think it’s more of a symptom of JuJu being really, really good than anything to do with AB.

I still view Brown as the preferred WR option going forward for the Steelers and all of fantasy football. He should pick apart this depleted Falcons defense this week.
