There are a few wide receivers widely available that either have good matchups heading into Week 12, or had successful Week 11 performances, or could benefit from an injury. With that in mind, here are four wideouts with under 50% rostership in traditional fantasy football leagues that managers can consider picking up for Week 9.
Week 12 byes: None
Corey Davis, Tennessee Titans (51 percent)
Next up — @HOU, CLE, @JAX, DET, @GB
We’ll make an exception for Davis because of how close he is to 50 percent rostership. He leads Tennessee in receptions and receiving yards. His numbers are almost identical to A.J. Brown’s, but Brown has four more touchdowns. Davis has eclipsed 100 receiving yards in three games this season and has loads of big-game potential.
Curtis Samuel, Carolina Panthers (50 percent)
Next up — @MIN, BYE, DEN, @GB, @WAS
Fantasy managers appear to still be iffy on Samuel. He’s scored four touchdowns in his last four games and tallied eight catches for 70 yards and a score with P.J. Walker filling in for Teddy Bridgewater in Week 11. Speed kills and Samuels is using his to dominate opposing defenses. His ownership will only continue to rise.
Michael Pittman, Indianapolis Colts (44 percent)
Next up — TEN, @HOU, @LV, HOU, @PIT
Pittman has led the Colts in receiving yards in each of his last two games and scored his first touchdown of the season in Week 11. It can be tricky predicting what Colts wideout will be the top performer but Pittman is the only Indianapolis receiver who’s played at least 80 percent of offensive snaps over the last three weeks. He’s always on the field and should get plenty of opportunities to make plays.
Nelson Agholor, Las Vegas Raiders (20 percent)
Next up — @ATL, @NYJ, IND, LAC, MIA
Agholor’s career has been reborn in Las Vegas. He’s caught six touchdowns and ranks fourth in the NFL in yards per reception (18.5). While he only has 25 catches on the year he only trails Darren Waller in receiving yards among Raiders players. He’s led all Las Vegas wideouts in snaps twice in the last three weeks.
