The Week 12 fantasy wide receiver rankings will look a little different because of one significant injury, but there’s still plenty to like as well. Even with the loss of A.J. Green, the position remains strong at the top with Antonio Brown, Odell Beckham Jr., Dez Bryant, Julio Jones and Amari Cooper leading way. Russell Wilson’s recent resurgence also has boosted Doug Baldwin’s value (as did a TD pass he threw to Wilson last week), as the Seahawks’ top target checks in at No. 6 this week.

As far as the Green injury goes, his loss certainly hurts the Bengals’ offense (not to mention Andy Dalton’s perceived value), and the question now is who will step up as the new No.1 target for Cincinnati. Will it be rookie Tyler Boyd? Veteran Brandon LaFell? Tight end Tyler Eifert? Only time will tell.

At least there are no byes to worry about this week and there are three games on Thanksgiving Day to get things started early. The fantasy playoffs are just around the corner, so hopefully these rankings will help you sort through your options.
