Wide receiver PPR rankings for Week 12 fantasy football

We take you through some of the best PPR wide receivers going in Week 12 for fantasy football, including a few viable streamers.

NFL Week 12 Wide Receiver Rankings

Final injury report

The toughest calls heading into the weekend are Julio Jones and Jerry Jeudy. Jones was a DNP on Friday after getting limited work on Wednesday and Thursday, which is not a good trend. Jeudy was downgraded from limited to DNP on Thursday, but upgraded to limited on Friday. It’s notable that the Broncos canceled practice due to a Covid-19 issue, so that is an estimation.

Speaking of Covid-19, the Ravens-Steelers game was moved from Sunday to Tuesday after initially being scheduled for Thanksgiving. If you have JuJu Smith-Schuster, Diontae Johnson, Chase Claypool, or Marquise Brown, consider alternatives.

Out: D.J. Chark (ribs), Chris Conley (hip), John Brown (ankle), Adam Humphries (concussion)
Doubtful: N/A
Questionable: N’Keal Harry (shoulder), Equanimeous St. Brown (knee), Marquez Valdes-Scantling (Achilles), Julio Jones (hamstring), Jakeem Grant (hamstring), Deonte Harris (neck), Jerry Jeudy (Achilles, ankle), Zach Pascal (knee, foot)

Thursday’s Ravens vs. Steelers Update

The Ravens had four more players and five staff members test positive according to Thursday evening reports. The game was moved from Thursday to Sunday, but is in danger of being postponed again. Lamar Jackson was one of the players who tested positive for Covid-19, which means Robert Griffin III would start if the game happens on Sunday. If that happens, he is a downgrade for Marquise Brown and the other Ravens pass catchers. Additionally, if you have one or more of Diontae Johnson, Chase Claypool, and JuJu Smith-Schuster, have a contingency plan in place.

Wednesday injury report

D.J. Chark and Chris Conley were both unexpected DNPs while the Packers had much of their receiver corps limited on Wednesday. On the good news front, Sammy Watkins and Adam Humphries are both making progress and seem well on track to play this Sunday.

DNP: DeAndre Hopkins (illness), D.J. Chark (ribs), Chris Conley (hip), John Brown (ankle), A.J. Brown (knee), Zach Pascal (knee, foot)
Limited: N’Keal Harry (shoulder), Matt Slater (knee), Cordarrelle Patterson (calf), Davante Adams (ankle), Allen Lazard (core), Equanimeous St. Brown (knee), Laviska Shenault (hamstring), Julio Jones (hamstring), Calvin Ridley (foot), Breshad Perriman (shoulder), Michael Thomas (ankle), Jerry Jeudy (Achilles, ankle), Sterling Shepard (hip, toe), Deebo Samuel (hamstring)
Full: D.J. Moore (shoulder), Sammy Watkins (calf, hamstring), Chris Godwin (finger), Nelson Agholor (knee), Adam Humphries (concussion)

Week 11 proved to be a good one for fantasy wide receivers who you actually started in your leagues. Keenan Allen led the way in PPR fantasy points across all positions, while he and Mike Williams benefit from rookie Justin Herbert playing lights out, way before it seems like he should.

Adam Thielen leads the league in touchdown receptions after making yet another one handed touchdown catch and yet another two-touchdown day, his fourth of the season.

Your one true outlier in the Top 5 was Damiere Byrd, who Cam Newton has taken a liking to this season. Unfortunately, he’s likely going to be fool’s gold on the waiver wire, but he should continue to get some deep shots.

And Nelson Agholor has filled the Raiders void for a top wide receiver, which I sure didn’t see coming. He’s not Davante Adams by any stretch of the imagination, but he keeps finding the end zone and making plays when called upon.

Injury news

Julio Jones was in and out of last week’s matchup with the Saints due to a tight hamstring. He’ll likely be limited this week and if he does play, there’s a chance he doesn’t play a full set of snaps.

Adam Thielen was placed on the Covid-19 list. We don’t know if he was a close contact or caught the virus, but his status is in question.

Kenny Golladay was limited in the Lions practice estimate to start the week. Since they play on Thanksgiving, he may have trouble being ready to go this week.

Randall Cobb appears to be done for the season. Keke Coutee should pick up his snaps.

JuJu Smith-Schuster hurt his foot on a penalty flag last week and didn’t practice on Monday, but he usually gets a day off to start the week anyway. We’ll see how he progresses.

Bye weeks

There are no teams on a bye in Week 12.

Streaming options

Jalen Reagor, Eagles

If you are a starting wide receiver and you are playing the Seahawks, there’s a good chance you are startable in fantasy. So, Travis Fulgham and Greg Ward also have some value, but Reagor is the guy who has the best shot, as he’s been the most productive Eagles wide receiver since returning from injury.

Nelson Agholor, Raiders

He’s still to inconsistent to be all in on each week, but his touchdown upside makes him a viable option each week at this point. And against a weak Falcons pass defense, he should be as safe as he can be this season. With Derek Carr playing the best football of his career, I feel even better about getting Agholor in my lineups.
