Wide Receiver Rankings Week 12

T.Y. Hilton is coming off a 155-yard, two-TD performance against the Titans

Week 12 of the fantasy football season and Thanksgiving are both here, which means we get a solid week of games to go with all of the food we are going to eat. There are just two teams on bye this week, but those happen to be the Chiefs and Rams, otherwise known as the teams that just combined for 105 points on Monday night. That's a lot of offensive firepower that won't be available.

 

There are still plenty of choices at wide receiver, however, starting with the top two. Michael Thomas and Julio Jones lead off this week's rankings and they just so happen to be playing in the same game on Thanksgiving night. Closely behind them come Antonio Brown and Odell Beckham Jr.

 

Washington's passing game will look different with Colt McCoy replacing Alex Smith, and keep an eye to see if young guys like Tre'Quan Smith, D.J. Moore and Courtland Sutton continue to impress. Moore had a monstrous game last week (seven catches for 157 yards and a TD) and he should remain a big part of the game plan at home against Seattle. I like him as a flex/WR3 this week.

 

Adam Thielen will look to get back on track after a rocky performance Sunday night against the Bears. Stefon Diggs picked up the slack with 13 catches for 126 yards and a TD. The Vikings need a win, so expect Kirk Cousins to look for both early and often this Sunday night at home against Green Bay.

 

As always be sure to check back closer to Sunday for any last-minute tweaks to these rankings.
