The fantasy playoffs have arrived for most leagues, or perhaps they have already started, which puts even more importance on the wide receiver rankings for Week 14. This is a critical week if you are still playing, knowing it is win or go home. And if you have a bye this week, congratulations and we’ll see you in Week 15.
This week if you have an elite receiver you are likely in luck as most of them are in fantastic matchups. Julio Jones is due for a rebound in facing the Saints in what could end up be a high-scoring affair even though it’s a Thursday night game. Atlanta is practically in a must-win situation and I expect Matt Ryan to come out throwing early and often.
Antonio Brown remains atop the rankings as he showed on Monday night that not even a bad toe or a wicked hit can slow him down. Josh Gordon was heavily utilized and targeted in his debut, and a full week of practice to get more in sync with DeShone Kizer certainly won’t hurt. He was targeted 11 times so the opportunity is there. Robby Anderson has been a must-start for a while now and lands inside my top 20 even though he’s matched up against Denver this week. In addition, Jacksonville’s Dede Westbrook and Marqise Lee have become flex-worthy plays due to volume alone.
