Week 13 WR Sleepers and Landmines

by , and • November 30, 2018

Each week, as we prepare to make some difficult lineup decisions, our team, which includes Rob Willette, Ryan McDowell, and Sal Leto, will bring you a few sleepers and landmines for each position. Our sleeper picks could be on your waiver wire or a low-priced DFS target or could simply be going overlooked this week. On the other hand, our landmine players are getting attention, too much attention. These are players we feel are being overvalued and overpriced and would avoid for this week.

SLEEPERS

Chris Godwin $4,500

We learned late in the week that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be without veteran WR DeSean Jackson, which will be an immediate boost for second-year WR Chris Godwin. The young receiver has had an up and down season but has impressed in recent weeks, including a seven catch, 103-yard game in Week Ten. He’s expected to serve as the second target behind star WR Mike Evans and in this pass-heavy Tampa offense, that could be good for another 100-yard day. – Ryan McDowell

 

Josh Reynolds $6,400

The Rams offense is pretty much the most reliable offense for consistent points in all of the league. If you play you pretty much play games very down. That remains the same with for Reynolds taking Cooper Kupp’s place. Week eight Kupp out Reynolds two touchdowns. Kupp comes back and Reynolds doesn’t play again until last week when Kupp was out again and he six receptions for 80 yards and a touchdown. It’s a nice result of having so many weapons in an offense. This week he’ll line up across from a rookie making his second career start for a Detroit team that has seen a teams number three wide receiver score more than eight points above average the last five weeks. – Sal Leto

Josh Doctson $4,500

I don’t blame you if your relationship with Josh Doctson is damaged beyond repair. The former first round pick has teased with big moments, yet has been largely underwhelming since Washington plucked him out of TCU. We could see a mini-breakout late in year three, however. With 17 targets over the past two games, Doctson appears to be the apple of Colt McCoy’s eye. While those targets have returned a modest 98 yards, it is evident the arrow is pointing up for Doctson in Washington. The Eagles are fairly close to recruiting a member of Fanball to play cornerback, and any smart offensive gameplan would include attacking their street free agents at cornerback. With a growing role and a quarterback who has shown the willingness to trust him, Doctson is a strong play in an elite matchup. – Rob Willette

LANDMINES

 

Jarvis Landry $6,700

This one is quite simple. Browns WR Jarvis Landry is not the same productive fantasy scorer he was in past years. He’s especially taken a bad turn since rookie QB Baker Mayfield took over. Landry has only finished inside the top 25 fantasy receivers once since Week Three and hasn’t eclipsed 50 receiving yards since Week Seven. After drawing 10+ targets in six of the Browns’ first eight games, he’s totaled ten looks in the past two weeks. – Ryan McDowell

 

Demariyus Thomas $5,500

It’s easy to get excited after he scored two touchdowns a week ago but that just covered up the fact that he’s not catching a lot of balls in this offense. Since being traded to the Texans (3 games) he has seven receptions for just 98 yards total. He will face off with rookie of the year candidate Denzel Ward this week and Ward has been super impressive. Over his last three games Ward has allowed under 30 yards – Sal Leto

Alshon Jeffery $7,500

After simply dominating after returning from off-season shoulder surgery, Alshon Jeffery has seen his target share plummet following the acquisition of Golden Tate. His three target afternoon against the Giants was the nadir of the season, and we’ve seen the Philadelphia passing offense as a whole throttle back. Philadelphia has found something with Josh Adams and the running game, and the only reliable passing game target has been Zach Ertz. Jeffery has the name brand value and tantalizing talent, but his role is a major concern. Washington is far from an imposing matchup, even with Josh Norman shadowing, but you can’t bank on Jeffery’s volume when paying a WR1 price. – Rob Willette
