Week 12 Fantasy Rankings: WR


As amazing as this may seem, the bye weeks this week take out more top receiving talent than last week's. This week, there are two teams on bye (Rams, Chiefs). Last week, there were six. That's how good the Rams and Chiefs offenses have been this season. With Tyreek Hill, Brandin Cooks, Robert Woods, and Sammy Watkins all unavailable, fantasy owners are going to have to make some start/sit decisions regarding their vacant slots in the lineup. And with plenty at stake in the race for the fantasy football playoffs, owners can ill-afford to make the wrong decision at this point in time. Our Week 12 fantasy WR rankings are here to help.

There are plenty of good matchups to target this week in fantasy formats. The Browns-Bengals and 49ers-Buccaneers games should see a fair amount of offense, and the receivers on both squads should have a good chance to put up solid numbers. But of all the games on the slate, the Falcons-Saints matchup on Thanksgiving night should be the highest-scoring one. Considering that the Saints have put up 99 points in their past two games combined, you can feel free to start virtually any New Orleans offensive weapons against the subpar Atlanta defense.

Week 12 Rankings:
Quarterback | Running Back | Tight End | D/ST | Kicker

In terms of matchups to avoid, the Redskins (@ Cowboys) and Titans (@ Texans) are both likely to start backup QBs this week and are playing a couple of defenses that aren't easy to beat. If you have other options, it might be best to bench players on those teams, just until we see what the Redskins offense looks like without Alex Smith and until we see if Blaine Gabbert can actually move the ball for the Titans.

Note: Check back for player movement updates and analysis throughout the week.
