Top 75 wide receiver standard rankings for Week 14 fantasy football

We take you through some of the best wide receivers going in Week 14 for fantasy football, including a few viable streamers.

UPDATE

Julio Jones will play against the Panthers. He’s a must start.

Will Fuller had a setback with his hamstring and is a game-time decision. If he can’t go, Kenny Stills gets a bump.

Golden Tate cleared the concussion protocol and should play on MNF.

JuJu Smith-Schuster is out against Arizona. James Washington, Diontae Johnson and Vance McDonald should get a boost in work.

Nelson Agholor is a game-time decision, but didn’t practice on Friday giving him a poor chance of playing on MNF. Dallas Goedert likely gets the biggest bump in work.

Parris Campbell is expected to play. He has a chance to have value against Tampa Bay with T.Y. Hilton out.

Adam Humphries is out and Tajae Sharpe is questionable. A.J. Brown and Corey Davis get a slight boost in a good matchup.

Adam Thielen is out against Washington. Stefon Diggs and Kyle Rudolph should benefit the most.


Week 13 has hit the bricks and Week 14 stepped through the saloon doors and sidled up to the bar for a shot of rot gut. And he’ll need it, as the fantasy playoffs are here and people are going to be cussing him up one side and down the other if the ball doesn’t bounce their way. Maybe I mixed a metaphor in there, but you get the picture.

If you don’t have a bye this week, you are all in on this slate of games. Get to studying those matchups, because if you ain’t first, you’re last. Wait, the math on that is off, well, you get it.

Injury/Status Report

Dan Quinn said Julio Jones’ (shoulder) availability for Week 14 is “trending upward.” Jones appeared close to playing last week, so he’s probably closer this week against the Panthers.

Frank Reich is “hopeful” T.Y. Hilton will return this season, and Chester Rogers is expected to miss the remainder of the season with a fractured knee. Hilton’s status sounds iffy at best for this week, which should give Zach Pascal and Jack Doyle plenty of work against Tampa Bay.

Bengals activated John Ross from injured reserve, and coach Zac Taylor has already confirmed Ross will have “a role.” He had some explosive games before his injury, so there is a slim chance he breaks out quickly, but he’s not someone you want to mess with in your fantasy playoffs.

Mike Tomlin said JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) is questionable for Week 14 against the Cardinals. He also mentioned that James Conner might get on the practice field before Smith-Schuster, so we shouldn’t bank on him playing. If he doesn’t, James Washington should continue to have plenty of upside.

Bears coach Matt Nagy said Taylor Gabriel (concussion) remains in the league’s protocol. His absence would help lift Anthony Miller’s workload again.

WR Ranking Tiers

Tier 1

Davante Adams got into the end zone twice against the Giants and this week he should be able to keep the good times going against a bad Washington pass defense.

DeAndre Hopkins hasn’t been a no-doubt smash play every week this season, but after a touchdown drought, he has five in his last six games, including one against the Patriots last week. He’s still a Tier 1 must play each week.

Tier 2

Courtland Sutton gets a good matchup in a game the Broncos should trail, so expect quite a few deep passes his way.

Robby Anderson is still a little risky, but he’s come on of late and appears to be back in tune with Sam Darnold, as he has 11 receptions for 197 yards in his last two games and two touchdowns in his last three games. He also has a great matchup with the Dolphins.

WR Streamers

James Washington has two strong games with JuJu Smith-Schuster out the last two weeks and it doesn’t look good for Smith-Schuster this week. The Cardinals have been getting torched through the air this season and even the Steelers should be able to do some damage.
