Chris Thomas’ Fantasy Football Wide Receiver Rankings for Week 14

Corey Davis

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’s playoffs may start in fantasy leagues. Owners may have a few wide receivers on their roster that they have been flipping between all season. Deciding between them could be the difference between winning and losing this week. For owners who have to stream a wide receiver this week, it may be difficult to choose who to put into your lineup.

For those who are not in playoffs yet, there is little time left during the fantasy football regular season. Every game that’s left is more important than the last to guarantee a spot 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)

Key:
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

WR17 Mike Evans, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Mike Evans was limited during practice on Wednesday and missed on Thursday this week. It could be precautionary for his hamstring, but this is something to pay attention to before Sunday. If Evans does not suit up Chris Godwin becomes WR11 on the week between DeAndre Hopkins and Stefon Diggs. While Antonio Brown moves up to WR18 between Robby Anderson and Brandon Aiyuk.

WR21 D.J. Moore, Carolina Panthers

Last weekend news broke that eight Carolina Panthers were added to the Reserve/COVID-19 list. One of those players happened to be D.J. Moore. If he is not activated Roddy Anderson will stay in the same place while Curtis Samuel will move up to WR29 between Tyler Lockett and Chase Claypool.

WR22 Kenny Golladay, Detroit Lions

Kenny Golladay hasn’t played since Week 8 due to a hip issue. If he misses Week 14 against the Green Bay Packers, Marvin Jones Jr. will become WR50 between Darnell Mooney and Breshad Perriman. He is not a great option this week if Golladay is out because of the likely Jaire Alexander shadow.

WR24 Brandin Cooks, Houston Texans

Last week against the Indianapolis Colts Brandin Cooks suffers a concussion. This was a scary moment during the game because Cooks has an extensive history of concussions during his career. If Cooks were to miss this week’s game against the Chicago Bears, Keke Coutee would become the Texan’s number one receiver and WR49 between Darnell Mooney and Breshad Perriman.

WR34 Curtis Samuel, Carolina Panthers

Along with D.J. Moore, Curtis Samuel was also added to the COVID-19 reserve list last weekend. If Samuel cannot suit up Robby Anderson and D.J. Moore should retain their rankings. But the Panthers running backs may see more work and Mike Davis may get the touches if McCaffrey and Samuel are both out.
