Week 13 of the NFL is done and gone and the fantasy playoffs are here for the majority of leagues. Be sure to map out these last three games so you’re prepared to win each week. Also, check your opponent’s lineup to see where their greatest needs are heading into the playoffs so you can block them, Mutombo style. .
Today, we’ll take a look at wide receivers who are available in the majority of ESPN fantasy football leagues.
Robby Anderson, WR, Jets (46.9 percent)
Anderson caught 7-of-10 targets for 101 yards this week caught 7-of-10 targets for 101 yards this week caught 7-of-10 targets for 101 yards this week. Anderson caught 7-of-10 targets for 101 yards against the Bengals and had a touchdown in each of his previous two games. This week he had his most receptions and targets in a game, giving us a good sign that he’s finally back as the No. 1 receiver.
Anthony Miller, WR, Bears (10.3 percent)
Miller has disappointed this year but over the last three weeks he’s seen 11, 9, and 13 targets. On Thanksgiving, he caught 9-of-13 targets for 140 yards. Without a tight end and opposing teams trying to take Allen Robinson out with their best defensive backs, Miller should continue to see a boost in targets and production.
James Washington, WR, Steelers (22.6 percent)
Washington caught all four of his targets for 111 yards and a touchdown against the Browns, backing up a big game the previous week against the Bengals. This week he’ll face a Cardinals pass defense that is barely there and as long as Devlin Hodges remains quarterback, he should keep getting deep targets.
Cole Beasley, WR, Bills (24 percent)
I never thought Beasley would be a touchdown maker but he has five touchdowns in his last seven games and has topped 74 yards in three of his previous four. He does have a tough schedule against the Ravens, Steelers, and Patriots next, but his ability underneath is great for tough matchups.
