Fantasy Football 2013 Wide Receiver Rankings: Week 13

Antonio Brown

Antonio Brown

Hope you like some receivers with your Thanksgiving meal.  Of the top 11 in Athlon Sports' fantasy football Week 13 wide receiver rankings, four of them play on Turkey Day.

But it is hard to go against Detroit’s Calvin Johnson, Pittsburgh’s Antonio Brown, Dallas’ Dez Bryant and Green Bay’s Jordy Nelson any week — Thursday game or not.

For Johnson and Nelson it’s a great matchup against each other. The Packers allow the ninth-most points to receivers over the last month, while the Lions are tops in that department.

Bryant gets an Oakland Raiders team allowing the second-most points to receivers over the last month and fourth-most this season.

Brown faces the stingiest receiver defense of the foursome. The Ravens have allowed the 12th-fewest over the last month and are 16th for the season. However, no one has more catches (80) than Brown this season.

Each week during the NFL season, we will rank enough players at each position to appease everyone from those in 8-team leagues to 16-team leagues, those that can start two QBs, two TEs, three RBs and four WRs. We cut out the rest, because if you're looking at who the 50th-best running back or the 17th-best kicker is for that week, you need more help than any website can give you.
