Fantasy WR Rankings Week 14: Who to start, sit at wide receiver in fantasy football

Rank Player 1 Cooper Kupp, LAR @ ARI 2 Davante Adams, GB vs. CHI 3 Tyreek Hill, KC vs. LV 4 Stefon Diggs, BUF @ TB 5 Justin Jefferson, MIN vs. PIT 6 CeeDee Lamb, DAL @ WAS 7 Diontae Johnson, PIT @ MIN 8 D.J. Moore, CAR vs. ATL 9 Marquise Brown, BAL @ CLE 10 Terry McLaurin, WAS vs. DAL 11 Keenan Allen, LAC vs. NYG 12 Amari Cooper, DAL @ WAS 13 Brandin Cooks, HOU vs. SEA 14 DK Metcalf, SEA @ HOU. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett showed signs of life against the 49ers, as did the Seattle offense as a whole. Russell Wilson probably should’ve ended the day with four passing touchdowns, so perhaps he’s finally turned the corner from his finger injury, which would obviously be great news for Seahawks’ pass-catchers. Houston gives up the 11th-most fantasy points per game (FPPG) to wide receivers, and since Seattle’s rushing attack is weak, Wilson could attempt a ton of passes, even if a blowout. That said, Metcalf and Lockett are back to “must-start” options. 15 Tyler Lockett, SEA @ HOU. See DK Metcalf. 16 Mike Evans, TB vs. BUF. This matchup with Buffalo is an interesting one for Evans and Chris Godwin. Statistically, the Bills are the best defense in the league against fantasy WRs, but if Buffalo’s offense scores with relative ease, this has major shootout potential. With Tom Brady and all his weapons, matchups are sometimes irrelevant, and the game conditions matter more. If Brady is forced to pass 50 times, a number of Buccaneers’ weapons will inevitably have great fantasy days. Ultimately, this is a long-winded way of saying Evans’ and Godwin’s floors are probably lowered, but their ceilings remain sky-high and you can’t reasonably bench them. 17 Chris Godwin, TB vs. BUF. See Mike Evans. 18 Ja’Marr Chase, CIN vs. SF. Before Seattle’s WRs had solid success against the Niners, they ranked as the 11th-best defense against fantasy WRs, so we still view this as a tough matchup for Bengals’ WRs. Additionally, Chase has been awfully quiet over the last five games, as he hasn’t exceeded 52 yards any of those weeks. We still think Chase’s upside is higher than Tee Higgins’, and as long as Joe Burrow (finger) is healthy for this game, it’s tough to ever contemplate benching either of them. 19 Julio Jones, TEN vs. JAX. If Jones (hamstring) returns from IR this week, it’ll be tough to resist the urge to start him. We already know A.J. Brown (chest) is out for another few weeks since he’s on IR, and the top Titans’ WRs are Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, Chester Rogers, and Dez Fitzpatrick right now. Golden Tate might also be activated for this game, but surely, Jones will command the most targets against the lackluster Jags’ defense. Tennessee won’t play him if he’s not healthy, so this is a gamble we’re willing to take if he’s on the field come Sunday. 20 DeAndre Hopkins, ARI vs. LAR. Hopkins caught both of his targets for 32 yards and a touchdown against the Bears, and while the target numbers might cause concern, it’s important to note Kyler Murray only attempted 15 passes at the Cardinals’ dominated the game on the ground and on defense. Murray and Hopkins were eased back into action after a month’s absence, so we’re not worried about Hopkin’s injury as of now. However, it’s time to start viewing him as more of a fantasy WR2, even though the Rams are in the top half of the league against fantasy WRs. Arizona has plenty of play-makers, so Hopkins isn’t drawing the insane target figures as we’ve seen in years past. 21 Elijah Moore, NYJ vs. NO. Moore is the overall WR2 in fantasy since his Week 9 breakout (only behind Justin Jefferson), and the Saints are a top-five defense in FPPG allowed. He’s the clear No. 1 WR in New York, so it’s a pretty simple decision to start him this week. Corey Davis (groin) will likely be “questionable” for this game, but he’s a solid flex piece with real upside if he can play. 22 Hunter Renfrow, LV @ KC. As surprising as it might be, Renfrow is the Raiders’ No. 1 WR, and he’s totaled 17 catches for 236 yards over the last two weeks in favorable matchups. Kansas City actually came into Week 13 as a top-12 defense against fantasy WRs, and they shut down Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick and limited Jerry Jeudy. However, Renfrow’s stellar number of late makes him a must-start. In the last meeting with KC, Renfrow totaled seven catches for 46 yards and a touchdown. 23 Chase Claypool, PIT @ MIN. Put simply, Minnesota can’t stop wideouts, and they were the second-worst defense against fantasy WRs before giving up a monster game to Amon-Ra St. Brown. This season, Rondale Moore, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Jauan Jennings, and Cedrick Wilson all had solid-to-stellar fantasy success against that struggling secondary, so Claypool has every opportunity to have his best game of the season here. Big Ben’s lack of arm strength has obviously limited Claypool’s ceiling, but he could feast in the red zone on Thursday night, and the matchup is too favorable to bench him unless you’re loaded at WR. 24 Jerry Jeudy, DEN vs. DET. Detroit is statistically OK against wideouts, but that has mostly been due to blowouts. That said, we could see Denver simply run Detroit into submission, so Jeudy and Courtland Sutton have ultra-low floors. However, the upside should also be high given the lack of talent on the Detroit defense, and hopefully, Jeudy and/or Sutton are able to cash in a TD in the red zone. Given that this probably won’t be a pass-heavy game script for Denver, they are more attractive in standard leagues vs. PPR leagues. 25 Brandon Aiyuk, SF @ CIN. Aiyuk was disappointing in his first game without Deebo Samuel (groin) in the lineup, but George Kittle drew a 40-percent target share, and there was little left on the bone as he had his monster game. Still, we like Aiyuk as a low-end WR2, even in a tough matchup with the Bengals’ solid secondary as Aiyuk settles into the WR1 role. After Jauan Jennings did next to nothing against Seattle, he’s tough to trust here. 26 Emmanuel Sanders, BUF @ TB 27 Tee Higgins, CIN vs. SF. See Ja’Marr Chase. 28 Darnell Mooney, CHI @ GB 29 Michael Gallup, DAL @ WAS 30 Mike Williams, LAC vs. NYG 31 Tre’Quan Smith, NO @ NYJ 32 Corey Davis, NYJ vs. NO. See Elijah Moore. 33 Courtland Sutton, DEN vs. DET 34 Kadarius Toney, NYG @ LAC 35 Sterling Shepard, NYG @ LAC 36 Robby Anderson, CAR vs. ATL 37 Van Jefferson, LAR @ ARI 38 Cole Beasley, BUF @ TB 39 Russell Gage, ATL @ CAR 40 Odell Beckham Jr., LAR @ ARI 41 Christian Kirk, ARI vs. LAR 42 Jarvis Landry, CLE vs. BAL 43 Marvin Jones, JAX @ TEN 44 Josh Reynolds, DET @ DEN 45 K.J.
