DeVante Parker and Albert Wilson both have cleared concussion protocol. Wilson doesn’t have much fantasy value but Parker gets a good matchup with Janoris Jenkins out and is a must start.
T.Y. Hilton is a game-time decision for Monday night. He’s not someone you should risk playing in your fantasy playoffs.
Nelson Agholor is out and Alshon Jeffery is on I.R. JJ Arcega-Whiteside and Greg Ward should have some value but Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert should be safer.
Scotty Miller will return this week for the Buccaneers, complicating the target numbers for Breshad Perriman and Justin Watson with Mike Evans out. Perriman and Watson should get the start on the outside but Perriman might end up being the safest play of the three.
Will Fuller is questionable but trending toward playing. An aggravation to his hamstring is a possibility, so he is a risky play but does help DeShaun Watson if he can play at all.
JuJu Smith-Schuster is out. The Bills secondary and the Steelers conservative offense make any Steelers wide receiver risky as it is.
Taylor Gabriel remains out giving Anthony Miller another shot at extra work.
D.J. Chark is out. Dede Westbrook and Chris Conley get the biggest bumps in a good matchup.
Week 14 was a tough one for wide receivers, as many went down with injuries. This week will have some unlikely stars in you fantasy playoffs, but that’s the way the fantasy football bounces. Let’s take a look at who might be worth your consideration this week.
Mike Evans is expected to miss the rest of the season. Justin Watson and Breshad Perriman get good increases in work.
Alshon Jeffery is out for the season due to a foot injury. Zach Ertz will continue to see plenty of targets with Dallas Goedert getting a bump as well. If Nelson Agholor can get healthy, he would get extra work but his status is up in the air. JJ Arcega-Whiteside should finally get some work but they’ve been reluctant to go to him.
Marvin Jones went on IR with an ankle injury. Danny Amendola should see the biggest bump with him Jones and T.J. Hockenson out.
Auden Tate was placed on I.R. Tyler Boyd will continue to be the only safe play and this makes him even safer.
JuJu Smith-Schuster will try to get back this week. The Steelers passing game is still tough to count on and James Washington and Diontae Johnson both demand work as well.
T.Y. Hilton doesn’t look poised to return this week and Parris Campbell was put on I.R. Jack Doyle and Zach Pascal remain the top plays in their absence.
D.J. Chark is week-to-week and likely won’t help you in the fantasy playoffs. Dede Westbrook should get the best workload in his absence.
Will Fuller is questionable for Week 15.
WR Ranking Tiers
Chris Godwin will have trouble with Darius Slay but Godwin moves around enough to avoid him and without Mike Evans there, Godwin will get plenty of work.
If Devante Parker can clear concussion protocol, he gets a great matchup against the Giants .
A.J. Brown and Ryan Tannehill should be able to keep rolling against a weak Texans secondary.
Dede Westbrook, Danny Amendola, Justin Watson, Breshad Perriman, and Zach Pascal should all get bumps and have value.
