Fantasy Football 2014 Wide Receiver Rankings: Week 12

Demaryius Thomas

Antonio Brown is on bye so for at least this week, he will cede the No. 1 spot on Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Wide Receiver Rankings for Week 12 to Demaryius Thomas. Brown leads the position in fantasy points, but Thomas isn’t too far behind after stringing together seven straight games with at least 100 yards receiving. Thomas could be busier than usual Sunday against Miami, depending on the health of teammates Emmanuel Sanders (concussion) and Julius Thomas (tight end). While Thomas and Brown have been setting the pace this season, no wideout has been more valuable fantasy-wise the past four weeks than rookie Mike Evans. Tampa Bay’s first-round pick leads his peers with 97.1 fantasy points (Athlons scoring) the past four weeks, including 658 yards receiving and five touchdowns in the last three games alone. Last week, Evans torched Washington for 209 yards and two scores and this week he will get his shot against a Chicago defense that’s yielded 12 touchdown passes in the last three games.

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 Web site can give you.
