Wide Receiver Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 12

Fantasy managers hope DJ Moore will find success with Sam Darnold.

DJ Moore needs to be downgraded to a fantasy WR3 moving forward. He was drafted as a WR1, but he has yet to perform even close to that level. The Carolina offense as a whole has struggled, and all offensive players need to be treated as flex options, at best. Baker Mayfield just doesn’t get him the ball. This should be good news, then, as Sam Darnold was named the starter for Sunday's game against Denver, but do you really think Darnold is going to get Moore the ball?

In Arizona, things are going to get interesting at receiver as Rondale Moore left Monday night's game with a groin injury and Greg Dortch is getting an MRI on his thumb. DeAndre Hopkins is healthy and is a clear WR1, but behind him, good luck. Hopefully Marquise Brown will be back, which will help the offense as Robbie Anderson and A.J. Green certainly aren’t worth starting in fantasy.
