Chris Thomas’ Fantasy Football Wide Receiver Rankings for Week 13

Jarvis Landry injury

This year more than ever it has been difficult to make decisions about fantasy football lineups because of injuries, byes, and Covid-19 concerns. This week fantasy starters like Chris Godwin, D.J. Moore, and Robby Anderson have byes. It could be difficult to decide who is the best streamer to replace one of them in a lineup. A fantasy roster could also have two wide receivers with similar value. Deciding between the two could be the difference between winning and losing this week.

With so little time left during the fantasy football regular season every game that’s left is more important than the last to guarantee owners spots in the fantasy football playoffs. Here are wide receiver rankings for Week 13 of the 2020 NFL Season

*Ratings are subject to change due to injury reports or possible move to reserve/COVID-19 list*

(Check out the section below for details on players already rumored to possibly miss this week and how their replacement options rank for the week)

Must Start- a player who is in your lineup regardless of the matchup or most circumstances. They Will likely finish near the top of the league in points that week and in most weeks.
Starting WR1- a player who makes fantasy owners comfortable starting week after week. Regardless of the matchup, this player has a high floor.
High WR2- a player who may isn’t likely to carry a lineup that week, but has the ability to have a breakout game and is teetering between WR1 and WR2 category.
Starting WR2- a player who should be started in most lineups and should reach their point projection. This player is started is because of their consistency and moderately high floor
Low WR2- a player who may not be a lock to start for a team every week, but will start more times than not. Their production may not be pretty or win a person their lineup but the production is consistent enough to make a fantasy owner comfortable starting them.
Flex- a player who could float around the territory of being benched, but is started due to the potential to play better than their point projection. However, this player has the potential to flop and cause a fantasy team to lose if he has a bad game.
Deeper League Flex- a player who has starting value in deeper leagues. There are enough reasons to leave this player on the bench, but their upside makes them an attractive option. Desperate times may call for a player like this to be inserted into starting lineups.
Upside Player- a player who is boom or bust. This player can exceed expectations in a given week or could flop and be the reason why someone lost their fantasy matchup.
Leave on the Bench- a player who should be avoided in all lineups that week. Many times this player could even be left on waivers.

Possible Changes that can occur before Sunday

WR9 Julio Jones, Atlanta Falcons

After missing last weeks game, Julio Jones missed practiced Thursday. He has been dealing with a lingering hamstring injury all season. If he practices Friday he will have a shot at playing this weekend against the Saints. If Jones was to miss the game Calvin Ridley would bump up to one spot to WR16 a head of Cooper Kupp. While Russell Gage would move up to WR62 between Jakeem Grant and Travis Fulgham.

WR22 Kenny Golladay, Detroit Lions

Kenny Golladay hasn’t played since Week 8 due to a hip issue. He missed practice on Thursday and is likely to miss practice again on Friday. If that is the case and he was to miss the game against the Chicago Bears, Marvin Jones Jr. will become WR40 between Mike Williams and CeeDee Lamb.

WR28 Nelson Agholor, Las Vegas Raiders

Nelson Agholor has emerged as the Raiders number one wide receiver this season, even though the number one option in the Raiders offense is tight end Darren Waller. However he has missed practice both Wednesday and Thursday because of an ankle issue. At this rate it is possible that Agholor might the Raiders game against the New York Jets. If that was the case Hunter Renfrow would jump to WR28 between D.J. Chark and Michael Pittman Jr,. While Henry Ruggs would jump to WR24 between Jarvis Landry and Deebo Samuel. This would be a great opportunity for Ruggs to show why he was the first receiver taken in this past years draft.

WR30 D.J. Chark, Jacksonville Jaguars

Early last week D.J. Chark was ruled out with a rib injury. This week it is uncertain whether he will return or not for the Jaguars game against the Vikings. If he was to miss time Keelan Cole Sr would become WR31 between Sterling Shepard and Tyler Boyd. While Laviska Shenault and Collin Johnson would have similar value ranked at WR41 between CeeDee Lamb and Jalen Reagor. Both are capable of emerging as one of the Jaguars top weapons this weekend for being virtually non-existent in the offense.

WR39 Jerry Jeudy, Denver Broncos

Jerry Jeudy has been limited in back to back practices due to an ankle issue. This means it could be very likely that the Broncos could be without their top pass-catcher in an important divisional matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Broncos have been shorthanded on both sides of the ball this season. its a major theme of their season which is extremely unfortunate. If Jeudy was to miss this weeks game Tim Patrick bumps up to WR45 between T.Y. Hilton and Collin Johnson. K.J. Hamler would rise to WR53 between Zach Pascal and Marquez Valdes-Scantling.
