The list of wide receivers on the fantasy injury report for Week 14 is a long one (with more seemingly being added by the day!). A handful of guys are listed as probable and have put in a full practice. Start them as you normally would: Dez Bryant, Brandon Marshall, Emmanuel Sanders, Eric Decker, Vincent Jackson, Ted Ginn Jr., Marques Colston and Anquan Boldin

Be sure to check on the key QB/RB and TE injuries for Week 14 as well.

Note: All games are at 1 p.m. ET unless otherwise noted.

Calvin Johnson, WR, Detroit Lions at St. Louis Rams

Questionable – Ankle

With four touchdowns in the past two games, Johnson is going to play in Week 14. He is going to miss practices and be limited, but he finds a way to play each week. He's a WR1 this week.

Brandin Cooks, WR, New Orleans Saints at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Probable – Concussion

Whether or not Cooks suffered a concussion is debatable, however it does look like he will play today. Be sure to watch the inactive reports before the games, but Cooks appears to be set as a WR2. Willie Snead will return (has a probable tag himself) but doesn't have fantasy value at this point.

Amari Cooper, WR, Oakland Raiders at Denver Broncos (Sunday, 4:05 p.m. ET)

Probable – Foot

Cooper showed up on the injury report with a foot injury this week. While it appears that he is going to play, the matchup is tough. The last time he faced Denver (Week 5), he had four receptions for 47 yards. Fantasy owners can expect the same this week. Cooper is a WR3.

Allen Hurns, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Indianapolis Colts

Probable – Thigh

Hurns has been banged up all season, but the one injury that kept him out in Week 13 was a concussion. He's been cleared through the concussion protocol and is set to play in Week 14. This game has the potential of being a high-scoring affair, and Hurns has been a touchdown machine this year. He has seven touchdowns on the year and three 100-yard games. The Colts give up the fifth-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers. Start Hurns as a high-end WR2.

Danny Amendola, WR, New England Patriots at Houston Texans (Sunday, 8:30 p.m. ET)

Questionable – Knee

He had seven receptions for 62 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 and didn't suffer a setback (that was noted, at least). He has the questionable tag, but he is fully expected to play in Week 14. It is unclear if Rob Gronkowski will return, but if he does, Amendola may see fewer targets. However, with Julian Edelman still out, Amendola is a WR2.
