Fantasy Football Rankings Week 12: Wide receiver

  • Fantasy Football Rankings Week 12: Wide receiver

    What's more important for a wide receiver -- his matchup or his quarterback? This week, that question will be put to the test, as several upper-tier wideouts with shaky QBs have highly favorable matchups, thus making our Week 12 WR rankings difficult to put together. 

    Kenny Golladay (@ Redskins), Terry McLaurin (@ Lions), D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel (@ Saints), JuJu Smith-Schuster (@ Bengals), and Allen Robinson (vs. Giants) all fit the mold of what we described above, and even guys like Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr (vs. Dolphins) and Jamison Crowder (vs. Raiders) don't exactly have the most reliable signal-callers. 

    WEEK 12 NON-PPR RANKINGS:
    Quarterback | Running back | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

    Still, we rank all in our top 36, as some tough byes (Cardinals, Chargers, Vikings, and Chiefs) and potential injuries (Smith-Schuster, T.Y. Hilton, Brandin Cooks, Tyler Lockett, Will Fuller) throw everything into flux. Moreover, it's tough to sit any "good" receiver with a bad matchup, including Michael Gallup (@ Patriots), Marquise Brown (@ Rams), John Brown (vs. Broncos), and Tyler Boyd (vs. Steelers). 

    However, if you are in the market for some under-the-radar sleepers, there are quite a few, including Russell Gage (vs. Buccaneers), Marcus Johnson (@ Texans), Robby Anderson and Demaryius Thomas (vs. Raiders), Taylor Gabriel (vs. Giants), Hunter Renfrow (@ Jets), and Danny Amendola (@ Redskins).

    Fantasy owners are used to making these tough calls on wide receivers, and more often than not, you're going to trust the talent, especially when they have favorable matchups. We're not here to talk you out of that, so trust your gut.
