First off, welcome to the Cafe.

As far as your question

PPR - Points per reception, indicates leagues in which players get points for a reception
WHIR - Mean Will Help in Return - If you help them they will help you

for more abbreviations used around here check out this link (this should really be stickied at the top)

I doubt you would have seen WHIP here, other than a typo. If you were over at the baseball cafe, it is referring to the commonly used baseballs stat and stands for the ratio or walks + hits to innings pitched.
