Wide Receiver Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 12

Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf, Seattle Seahawks

Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf are still WR2s despite Russell Wilson's recent shaky play

Russell Wilson hasn't looked quite the same after suffering a finger injury in Week 5, and it's not just his fantasy managers that are feeling the pain. Since his return from IR in Week 10, he's now gone two games in a row without throwing a touchdown. That's tough enough but it also makes it difficult to trust two of the top wide receivers in the game: Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf.

For Week 12, the duo is still ranked as WR2s, although keeping Metcalf in the top 10 may be a bit high. Lockett has had two 100-yard games with a 2/23/0 dud in the middle over the past three weeks. Metcalf has seen eight targets in the past two games, but only has 57 total yards to show for them. The Seahawks face the Washington Football Team in Week 12, which should be a good matchup. If Wilson and his receivers can't get it done this week, fantasy managers should officially panic.
