Charch's Week 14 Wide Receiver Rankings

RankPlayer

Coming off the lowest production two week stretch of his 43-game career, Michael Thomas faces a Tampa that he blasted for career-highs in targets and catches in Week 1. He was pretty pedestrian by his standards in his first three starts against Tampa, averaging 6 grabs and 89 yards with no scores. The Bucs haven't allowed a 100+ yard game to a receiver in five weeks after giving up five in their first seven. But he should bounce back here as Tampa is mixing and matching their corners due to injuries to all three starting cornerbacks. They have allowed touchdowns on 85% of their trips while Thomas has the second-most red zone catches in football. - Jeff Maas (@manoflamancha)

The Chargers offense runs directly through Keenan Allen, at least until Melvin Gordon returns. He's coming off a career night, tying his career-high in catches with 14 while setting a new career-high with 19 targets. You read that correctly, 19 targets. Mercy. Allen is laying waste to every secondary in his path, with scores in each of his last four games, and up next is Cincinnati, the worst secondary Allen will face. Running out of the slot, he'll likely face cornerback Darqueze Dennard in coverage, who allows an astronomical 76% catch rate and 113 passer rating in his coverage, so it's likely we'll see another ridiculous output for Allen this week. - Jeremy Thomas (@jeremyt_2)

Antonio Brown has scored in ten of twelve games and has yet to be held scoreless in back-to-back games. He heads into a juicy matchup fresh off his best game of the season where he logged season-highs in catches (10) and yards (154). He's seen double-digit targets in each of his last three games, a trend likely to continue should James Conner miss due to injury. Brown faces Gareon Conley, who's been Oakland's best cornerback as of late. Conley hasn't allowed a score or more than 34 yards in his coverage since Week 8, but given how Brown just put an elite cornerback (Casey Hayward) to task, Conley stands little chance. - Jeremy Thomas (@jeremyt_2)

Held scoreless in two straight games for the first time this season, DeAndre Hopkins has cooled off, but still managed 83 yards per game in that span. Facing the Colts is exactly the matchup to right the ship, as he's averaged 104 yards per game in his last six meetings with Indianapolis. That includes a monster effort in Week 4 this season where he tallied 10 catches for 169 yards and a touchdown. He'll draw coverage from cornerback Pierre Desir, who's surrendered a measly 45 yards per game over his last three outings, but he didn't face a single elite wide receiver in that span, so Hopkins should have little problem finding space. - Jeremy Thomas (@jeremyt_2)

Worried that Julio Jones just posted his lowest yardage total in six-and-a-half seasons? This tidbit may help: The last two times Julio faced the Packers, he posted stat lines of 11-259-1 and 9-180-2. It is true that only two non-Vikings receivers have gone over 100 yards against Green Bay. However, the Packers continue to deal with a rash of injuries all over their secondary. Between the coaching change and Jaire Alexander being their only good member of the secondary, only the weather should keep Jones from starting a new streak of century-mark outings after having his six-game streak stopped last week. - Jeff Maas (@manoflamancha)

[UPDATE: RT Bryan Bulaga and LG Lane Taylor, along with RG Byron Bell, are inactive. That's three starters. I've moved him down a few spots as a result.] Davante Adams has scored seven times in six home games and continues to lead the NFL in red zone targets. His last two regular season outings against the Falcons were amazing as he compiled 20 catches, 273 yards and a score. Adams could avoid Desmond Trufant for stretches of this one as he takes most of his snaps opposite of Trufant's primary side of the field. Ten of his 11 scores are from the 16-yard line in, while Atlanta ranks 30th in allowing touchdowns inside the red zone. - Jeff Maas (@manoflamancha)

Facing a great slot cornerback in Desmond King last week resulted in a rare dud from JuJu Smith-Schuster, as he failed to score or reach the 50-yard mark for the first time since Week 8. Even with a down week, he's still averaging 108 yards over his last four games while scoring twice in that span. It'll be much easier for JuJu this week against a struggling Oakland secondary, specifically slot cornerback Nick Nelson. Nelson has allowed at least 83 yards in two of his last three games, and surrendered a season-high six catches in his coverage against Kansas City, so back-to-back duds from JuJu is highly improbable. - Jeremy Thomas (@jeremyt_2)

To no one's surprise, Julian Edelman has cemented himself as the go-to receiver for Tom Brady, leading New England with nine targets per game over his last five games. He's notched two 100-yard efforts and one score in that span. Edelman has been a thorn in Miami's side in the past, with four touchdowns in his last four meetings, averaging 99 yards in those games. He'll face Dolphins slot cornerback Bobby McCain, who's been a major liability in Miami's secondary, allowing a 72% catch rate and a 109 passer rating in his coverage. And he's surrendered three scores in his last five games, so Edelman's likely to continue his dominance over Miami this week. - Jeremy Thomas (@jeremyt_2)

Stefon Diggs had his four-game scoring streak snapped against Stephen Gilmore and the Pats but should fare better against the Seahawks, who have been statistically mediocre against receivers. In each of their last six games, Seattle has allowed at least 92 yards to a wideout. They also ceded seven scores to receivers in those six. Seattle corner Tre Flowers was ruined by Dante Pettis last week and Shaquill Griffin has given up a score in each of his last two. No team runs a higher percentage of pass plays than the Vikings, so once again there should be plenty of targets for both Diggs and Adam Thielen. - Jeff Maas (@manoflamancha)

Even though it seems Adam Thielen has cooled off, he has still scored or topped 100 yards in eleven of his twelve starts. He has managed both of those marks in seven. The Vikings square off against a Seattle team that has allowed at least 92 yards to a receiver in six straight games while giving up seven scores to the position as well. Thielen should be opposite Justin Coleman for a fair share of this one. Coleman may have been the best corner of their trio over the past three, averaging just three grabs and 25 yards in his coverage. Between the average play of the Seattle corner corps and the Vikings leading the league in pass/run ratio, there is no reason to think Thielen's run of fantasy points is in danger this week. - Jeff Maas (@manoflamancha)

PHI @DAL

In his past two outings, Amari Cooper has basically matched his career-best two-game totals with 16-255-2. He posted six grabs and 75 yards in the Cowboys' earlier meeting with the Eagles. Philly is incredibly weak throughout their remaining secondary and the good numbers they put up last week is purely a Sanchize thing. Another positive for the Cowboys passing game is the probable return of Tyron Smith. Also of note, Cooper put up 66 yards and a score in a late season matchup between Oakland and Philly last season. - Jeff Maas (@manoflamancha)

Brandin Cooks should see a lot of Prince Amukamara, who was picked on badly in his last two home games. He was targeted 22 times, allowing 16 catches for 178 yards and two scores in his coverage. Cooks had a string of three 100+ yards games ended last week. Chicago has been susceptible to a big play now and again, which obviously plays into Cooks' game. The Bears have also allowed five wide receiver scores in their past four contests. - Jeff Maas (@manoflamancha)

In what appeared to be the easiest matchup thus far for Tyreek Hill, he produced his worst game of the year last week against Oakland, and now risks back-to-back duds against a solid Baltimore secondary. In the two games prior to last week, Hill averaged an eye-popping 166 yards while notching four scores. Baltimore's excellent secondary has only allowed four touchdowns to wide receivers since Week 2, which is nothing short of amazing. Hill runs from all over the field, but most commonly from the slot, where he'll draw coverage from Ravens cornerback Brandon Carr, who's allowed at least 76 yards in two of his last four games. The veteran Carr doesn't possess elite speed, so containing Hill may prove to be an elusive task. - Jeremy Thomas (@jeremyt_2)

[UPDATE: UPGRADED ON NEWS THAT XAVIEN HOWARD IS NOT EXPECTED TO PLAY IN THIS GAME.] Tom Brady is finding rhythm with Josh Gordon, connecting on 100% of his passes to Gordon in the last two weeks. Gordon's been busy in New England's passing attack, scoring in two of his last four games, gaining at least 70 yards in three of those outings. Gordon caught two passes for a scoreless 32 yards against Miami in Week 4, however that was in his Patriots debut, so a more productive day should be on the horizon. Gordon predominantly lines up on the left side of the field, where he'll face Miami cornerback Minkah Fitzpatrick in coverage, who's yet to allow a score to an opponent. He's averaging just 43 yards allowed in his coverage over the last two weeks, so Gordon is likely in for a dogfight. - Jeremy Thomas (@jeremyt_2)

Hilton managed to snare eight catches, proving he's capable of producing despite his team's struggles. He's gained at least 77 yards and/or scored in four straight games, adding nearly seven catches per game in that span. Houston has struggled to contain Hilton in recent memory, as he shredded them for 94 yards per game while scoring twice in two meetings last season, and this year, he added a 115-yard effort in Week 4. He'll face veteran Houston cornerback Johnathan Joseph, who's allowed just 34 yards per game in his coverage in the last three weeks, but given Hilton's past success, Joseph isn't likely to slow T.Y. this week. - Jeremy Thomas (@jeremyt_2)

When Mike Evans faced the Saints in the opener, he posted a huge box score of 7-141-1. Fitzmagic was starting that game. In his six games against the Saints with Winston starting, Evans has averaged just 3-41-0.2. For those without a math degree, that is a tad over three catches and 41 yards per game. He will certainly see his fair share of Marshon Lattimore, the Saints best corner. Lattimore did allow Amari Cooper to put up eight grabs and 75 yards in his coverage last week so the news isn't all bad here. - Jeff Maas (@manoflamancha)

Save a dud in Tampa a month ago, DJ Moore has seen his share of targets gradually increase the entire season. He has averaged over eight targets per game in his last three. The injury to Greg Olsen will open up more opportunities for the Carolina receivers. Moore lines up all over the field so he should have plenty of chances away from Denzel Ward here. Moore and Samuel seem to be the best bets to be lead dogs as of now. Keep in mind that Moore played 93% of the snaps the last two weeks. Whether that changes with Funchess' health, we shall see. - Jeff Maas (@manoflamancha)

The surging Adam Humphries draws yet another great matchup in PJ Williams this week. Williams has been wrecked numerous times this season, but do note his best game to date was last week against Cole Beasley in Dallas. Humphries has caught a touchdown from Jameis Winston in three straight and has five scores overall in his last five games. The Bucs scored four touchdowns and posted two 140+ yard receiving games in the opener against New Orleans. True, the Saints defense has improved but they did allow five different receivers to top 74 yards in their last two games. - Jeff Maas (@manoflamancha)

[UPDATE: VIKINGS CB TRAE WAYNES HAS BEEN RULED OUT. WAYNES LIKELY WOULD HAVE SHADOWED LOCKETT.] Tyler Lockett has scored in 9 of his 12 games. He could have a nice matchup against Minnesota if Trey Waynes can't go. Waynes is the team's speed corner, and Lockett is blazing fast. Despite his scoring production, Lockett has only been targeted more than six times once. The Vikings rank second in red zone defense, allowing touchdowns just 45% of the time. This is important here because six of his nine scores came from outside the 20 and Minnesota had a few relapses in secondary communication last week in Foxsboro. Also important to the touchdown-dependent Lockett is that the Vikings have given up just five scores to receivers in their eleven non-Rams games. - Jeff Maas (@manoflamancha)

Antonio Callaway is so close to a big game he can probably taste it, and he has a chance to eat this week against a reeling Panthers secondary. Carolina has been atrocious against receivers in recent weeks, surrendering four touchdowns and three 100-yard outings in their last two games. Callaway, who's averaging 59 yards over his last four games and was a goal-line fumble away from a score last week, will face Panthers cornerback James Bradberry in coverage. Bradberry has allowed the most yards in his coverage. - Jeremy Thomas (@jeremyt_2)

Perhaps we finally saw Freddie Kitchens figure out how to utilize Jarvis Landry's ridiculous skillset, as Landry registered more yards last week (103) than he logged in Kitchens' first three games combined (102). Receivers are shredding the Panthers secondary lately, with four scores and three 100-yard efforts in Carolina's last two games. Sheesh. Landry will draw coverage from Panthers cornerback Captain Munnerlyn out of the slot, who's allowing a 70% catch rate in his coverage. In the last two games, Munnerlyn has surrendered nearly seven catches and 90 yards per game in his coverage, so Jarvis should post his second consecutive productive game. - Jeremy Thomas (@jeremyt_2)

When you think Arizona's secondary, you think of Patrick Peterson. Last week Davante Adams found his way around Peterson, putting up 8-93-1 while having just one grab for eight yards in Peterson's coverage. That's your hope for Golladay too. Peterson also has given up a couple of scores in his last five games. With nagging injuries to Budda Baker, the Cardinals are currently employing the once-great but not-so-much anymore David Amerson and something called Leonard Johnson who was played for a different team for five straight seasons at their other corner spots. Golladay had scored or topped 90 yards in three straight before last week's loss to the Rams. - Jeff Maas (@manoflamancha)

Golden Tate is fresh off his best game in an Eagles uniform and should have a decent matchup against Cowboys slot corner Anthony Brown. Brown has allowed touchdowns to the household names of Keith Kirkwood and Trey Quinn in his last two games. That said, no team has allowed fewer catches to wide receivers than the Cowboys. On a positive note, Tate will mostly avoid the guy who is mainly responsible for that stat, Byron Jones. Tate has seen nearly eight targets per game in his last three, so Carson Wentz is continuing to involve him in the offense. - Jeff Maas (@manoflamancha)

After a few down weeks, Allen Robinson reemerged in the Bears offense last week. With Mitchell Trubisky likely to return this week, Robinson hopes to continue a stretch of four touchdowns in Trubisky's last five starts. Getting Aqib Talib back has already helped a Rams defense that was destroyed by Michael Thomas and Tyreek Hill in the last month. They held Detroit receivers to just 110 yards on 19 targets last week. It's also worth noting that LA has only allowed one receiver to top 50 yards in the four games in which Talib was active. - Jeff Maas (@manoflamancha)

Like his dad stole bases, Dante Pettis is helping people steal fantasy wins. Lightly owned in leagues, Pettis has put up 206 yards and three scores in his last two. In even better news for him, slot star Chris Harris is out this week, and Pettis has spent 100 snaps running from the slot. The Broncos have struggled against outside receivers while Harris has handled the slot very well. It's worth mentioning that Tyler Boyd came up with nearly 100 yards last week mostly after Harris went down. As usual, Marquise Goodwin and Pierre Garcon are both a question mark. If the Niners can give Nick Mullens any kind of time here, Pettis could be in for his third straight winner. - Jeff Maas (@manoflamancha)

Since Cooper Kupp's move to injured reserve, Robert Woods has taken over most of the slot snaps and has scored in both games. He will see a bunch of Bryce Callahan, a tricky matchup against the Bears' best corner. Callahan has allowed just one touchdown all season. He also has given up more than 23 yards in his coverage just once in his past six games. In the two road games LA has played with Kupp out, Josh Reynolds has put up a total of 3 catches and 38 yards so he has not taken much from either Woods or Brandin Cooks away from The Coliseum. - Jeff Maas (@manoflamancha)

Why do I love fantasy football? The fantasy playoffs are upon us, and I'm writing about Zay Jones, something I never would have guessed two months ago-heck, two weeks ago. He's forced my hand, notching two multi-score games in the last three weeks, averaging six catches for 80 yards in those outings. And don't forget, one of those monster efforts came against this same Jets secondary. Jones runs from the slot most often, where he'll face a struggling cornerback in Buster Skrine who's allowed two scores in his last three games, so a repeat of his Week 10 shellacking of New York's secondary is possible. - Jeremy Thomas (@jeremyt_2)

DeSean Jackson has an injured thumb and Chris Godwin seems to be the biggest beneficiary. Last week, Godwin picked up 101 yards in Jackson's absence and should draw a lot of Eli Apple here. Apple has allowed 15 catches and 189 yards in his coverage over the past two games. The Saints continue to allow the most fantasy points to wide receivers, to point they have given up at least 74 yards to five different receivers in their last two games. - Jeff Maas (@manoflamancha)

Despite inexperienced Jeff Driskel at quarterback, Tyler Boyd continued his productive ways last week, garnering eight targets and gaining nearly 100 yards. He's averaging 91 yards over his last five games, scoring twice in that span, and I expect much of the same with AJ Green now on IR. He runs most of his routes from the slot where he'll face talented Chargers slot cornerback Desmond King. King has been outstanding, surrendering just one score, way back in Week 5. Highly targeted receivers like Boyd, who's averaging nine targets over his last three games, can exploit King, though, as he allows an incredibly high 80% catch rate, so Boyd could haul in a great deal of Driksel darts. - Jeremy Thomas (@jeremyt_2)

You've got to pick your spots with Taylor Gabriel, and this looks like one of them. Gabriel will most frequently match up with Marcus Peters, arguably the most burned cornerback in the league.

Unfortunately, the loss of Emmanuel Sanders likely hurts Courtland Sutton more than it helps him. Defenses will double Sutton, knowing that DaeSean Hamilton and Tim Patrick aren't likely to beat them. Sutton finally put the pieces together and assembled his best game as a pro against Cincinnati, hauling on four grabs for 85 yards, both season-highs, while finding the end zone for the first time since Week 7. Sutton gets back-to-back juicy matchups, as he'll now face a struggling San Francisco secondary that has allowed five scores to opposing receivers in their last two games. Cha-ching! Sutton will most commonly face 49ers cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon, who hasn't allowed a score since Week 7, but he allows a passer rating of 104 in his coverage, so Keenum and Sutton could build upon last week's success. - Jeremy Thomas (@jeremyt_2)

Despite his drop in overall numbers, Larry Fitzgerald has scored four touchdowns in last three home games. He faces a Lions pass defense that has been better against receivers the past two weeks, ceding no more than 67 yards to any one wideout with just one score, a Robert Woods touchdown from the slot. Fitz should be able to avoid Darius Slay for much of this game and face the current revolving door of the slot corners Detroit uses, the uninspiring combo of Nevin Lawson and Teez Tabor. Much like Tyler Lockett, Fitz has strangely become a touchdown-dependent play with Byron Leftwich in charge and should be viewed that way until proven otherwise. - Jeff Maas (@manoflamancha)

In his three active games, he's posted two zero-catch games surrounding his massive 10-catch 157-yard effort on Thanksgiving. He's the ultimate boom-or-bust player, and if you're not going to start him against the Bucs, why have him on your roster?

While it was a quiet afternoon for Demaryius Thomas last week, it's worth noting that he saw five targets from Deshaun Watson for the second straight week. This is promising, considering he combined for just three targets in his first two games with Houston. He gets his first taste of the Texans' rivalry with the Colts this week, a secondary Watson shredded for 375 yards and two touchdown passes in Week 4. Thomas will face Indy cornerback Quincy Wilson in coverage, who's been solid, surrendering just 28 scoreless yards per game in his coverage over his last four games.

Tread lightly, though, as he's far from matchup proof and faces a Jaguars secondary he's yet to figure out, averaging one catch for a laughable 13 scoreless yards in three career meetings. He'll draw coverage from elite Jags cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who allows a miniscule 68 passer rating and a 51% catch rate in his coverage. Gulp.

If Sammy Watkins remains sidelined, you can consider starting Chris Conley, who's scored three times in the last two games sans Sammy. He has the luxury of playing in a high-octane offense led by Patrick Mahomes, who's zipped multiple touchdown passes in every game since Week 5. The Chiefs line Conley up all over the field, but he spends over half the time running from the slot, where he'll face Ravens cornerback Brandon Carr. Baltimore's secondary has allowed only four scores to receivers since Week 2 (whoa), and Carr hasn't allowed a score yet, but he's surrendered nearly 54 yards per game in his coverage over his last four outings, so you could certainly do worse than Conley despite a difficult matchup. - Jeremy Thomas (@jeremyt_2)

I get nauseous just thinking about Jordy Nelson these days, but he has momentum after assembling a season-high ten catch performance last week, culminating in his highest yardage output since Week 3. He's still a risky play, as he's hauled in three or fewer catches in over half his games. Pittsburgh's secondary isn't great, ranking in the middle of the pack against receivers, and Oakland is likely to air it out to keep pace with the high-powered Steelers offense. Jordy will face the Steelers' best cornerback, Joe Haden, who allows a catch rate of just 58% and a passer rating of 84 in his coverage, but he's allowed scores in back-to-back weeks, so Jordy could surprise fantasy owners again this week. - Jeremy Thomas (@jeremyt_2)

He's gained at least 52 yards and/or scored in each of his last three games, but he's averaging just three catches per game in that span, so proceed at your own risk. Lining up most often on the left side of the field, he'll see mostly William Jackson this week, Cincinnati's most talented cornerback. Jackson's been inconsistent, as he allowed back-to-back scores in Weeks 8 and 10, and followed that up by surrendering just 16 scoreless yards per game over his next three outings, so Williams carries his usual risk this week. - Jeremy Thomas (@jeremyt_2)

It took seven games, but last week Devante Parker got off the schnide by notching his first score. That touchdown aside, it was another quiet effort for Parker, who's now been held under 45 yards in six of his seven games. This ugly trend is likely to continue against the Patriots, as Parker has averaged a paltry 30 scoreless yards in his last three meetings, and hasn't reached pay dirt against them since the 2015 season. It's likely he'll face cornerback Stephon Gilmore in coverage, who's been the very definition of elite, allowing a minuscule 47% catch rate and surrendering just 39 yards per game in his last four outings, so fire up Parker at your own peril. - Jeremy Thomas (@jeremyt_2)
