This is a must-win week for many fantasy owners, so having Tampa’s and Carolina’s talented wide receivers on bye is less than ideal. Removing those six names hurts the depth of our Week 13 fantasy WR rankings, but there are still plenty of worthwhile options to consider for your start ’em, sit ’em decisions — barring injuries, of course.
Banged-up players are a constant worry this time of year, though, as teams that are out of contention will be extra careful with players and teams already ticketed for the playoffs will want to make sure they’re at full strength for the postseason. That means receivers like Kenny Golladay (@ Bears), DJ Chark (@ Vikings), and Julio Jones (vs. Saints) are questionable to suit up this week, and there are sure to be more late-week scratches.
WEEK 13 PPR RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker
As it stands, our rankings look pretty stacked through the WR3 tier. A few key guys are dropping because of matchups and QB issues, with Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins (@ Dolphins) suffering because of both. Christian Kirk (vs. Rams), Mike Williams (vs. Patriots), Travis Fulgham and Jalen Reagor (@ Packers), and Marvin Jones (@ Bears) are some of the usual WR3 candidates who are in tough spots this week. The Steelers talented trio of WRs also has a brutal matchup against Washington, but it’s tougher to bench any of them given how many targets they usually get.
WEEK 13 STANDARD RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker
There are plenty of sleepers with favorable matchups to consider instead of those guys. Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton (@ Seahawks), Corey Davis (vs. Browns), Michael Pittman Jr. and T.Y. Hilton (@ Texans), Nelson Agholor (@ Jets), Marquise Brown (vs. Cowboys), Jarvis Landry (@ Titans), and Keelan Cole (@ Vikings) are all viable options. Going deeper, Josh Reynolds (@ Cardinals), Henry Ruggs and Hunter Renfrow (@ Jets), Breshad Perriman and Denzel Mims (vs. Raiders), and Darnell Mooney and Anthony Miller (vs. Lions) could work as WR3/flexes in deeper leagues.
It might be tough deciding on a WR3 this week, but between solid receivers in bad matchups and boom-or-bust guys in favorable matchups, you should be able to find either a high-floor or high-ceiling option. Decide what type of receiver fits better in your lineup and use the rankings below to pick the right one.
Note: Check back all week leading up to kickoff, as we’ll continue to update our WR rankings based on the latest news and injuries.
