If you’re a wide receiver in the NFL, you injure your hamstrings. It’s what you do.

Right off the top of my head, I can name four top receivers in the league who are battling hammy issues. So let’s take a look at them and see if we can shed any light on their respective Week 6 statuses.

Odell Beckham Jr., Giants — Beckham was injured Sunday, but returned late in the game, which is obviously a good sign for his Week 6 status. ODB and Eli Manning are really finding their groove and since the Giants and Eagles play on Monday night, the stud WR will get an extra day to rest. He’s at the top of my rankings this week. Of course that changes if he is held out.

DeSean Jackson, Redskins — Jackson has yet to play in a game this season and if he does return for Week 6, he’ll face the Jets, who have been playing suffocating pass defense. This is far from an ideal matchup.

Alshon Jeffery, Bears — The Bears have been tight-lipped on Jeffery, who has missed the past 4 games. This isn’t a good sign and right I’d plan to be without Jeffery for Week 6. In fact, I didn’t even include him the below rankings.

Julio Jones, Falcons — Jones missed practice Tuesday and is questionable for Week 6’s game vs. the Saints. Unfortunately, the game is Thursday night. It looks like Jones will be a true game-time decision, but has said nothing will keep him out. Be sure to check his status prior to the game.

Each week I’ll be posting fantasy football rankings for quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, tight ends and defenses/special teams. Bookmark our fantasy football rankings 2015 page to keep up-to-date on the latest projections and rankings so you know you who to start and who to sit.
