Here are the Lester’s Legends 2015 Week 5 fantasy football wide receiver rankings.
1. Julio Jones, Atlanta Falcons
Jones is averaging 119.5 yards and a touchdown per game. The Houston Texans slowed him down, but look for Julio to dominate the Washington Redskins. The ‘Skins have allowed seven passing touchdowns already.
2. Demaryius Thomas, Denver Broncos
Thomas is averaging 90.3 yards with one touchdown. He should be able to dominate the Raiders. Oakland has allowed 310.5 yards and a pair of touchdowns per game.
3. Odell Beckham, Jr., New York Giants
ODB is averaging 76.8 yards and 0.5 touchdowns per game. He was quiet last week, but should exploit San Francisco. The Niners have allowed 263.3 yards per game.
4. Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh Steelers
Brown is still averaging 119.5 yards and 0.5 touchdowns despite having his five-catch, 50-yard streak snapped last week with Michael Vick at the helm. He should be able to bounce back against the San Diego Chargers. The Bolts have already allowed seven passing scores.
5. DeAndre Hopkins, Houston Texans
Hopkins is averaging 102.3 yards and 0.8 touchdowns per game. He has 31 catches already. He’ll remain busy against Indianapolis. The Colts are allowing 268 yards per game.

Cobb is averaging 72.3 yards and a touchdown per game. He squares off against the St. Louis Rams.
7. Julian Edelman, New England Patriots
Edelman is averaging 93 yards and 0.7 touchdowns per game. He’s averaging ten catches per fame. Edelman will continue to see a heavy share of targets against the Dallas Cowboys.
8. Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona Cardinals
Fitz is averaging 108 yards and 1.3 touchdowns per game. He has had at least six catches and 87 yards each week. Detroit is his next victim. The Lions have allowed 271.5 passing yards per game.

Cooper is averaging 84.8 yards and 0.5 touchdowns per game. The Denver Broncos present a challenge, but Cooper is off to a fantastic start.
