Wide receiver non-PPR rankings for Week 14 fantasy football

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

Final injury report

Fantasy managers received news on some of the biggest names early this week, with Julio Jones and Kenny Golladay ruled out ahead of Sunday.

DeAndre Hopkins officially enters the week as questionable, though Kliff Kingsbury has said they expect him to be available Sunday.

A.J. Brown and Chase Claypool were left off of the final injury report.

Though Keke Coutee is officially listed as questionable, he did log a full practice Thursday — a positive sign towards playing. Cooks remained limited through the week.

If Jamison Crowder misses Sunday, the Jets could be in bad shape — even worse than usual. Denzel Mims was ruled out for Week 14 with a personal issue, so Sam Darnold will certainly need some help and perhaps more involvement from Breshad Perriman and TE Chris Herndon.

Out: Julio Jones (hamstring), Kenny Golladay (hip), Denzel Mims (non-injury related)
Doubtful: N/A
Questionable: Jamison Crowder (calf), DeAndre Hopkins (neck, back), Tee Higgins (hamstring), Equanimeous St. Brown (knee, concussion), Brandin Cooks (foot, neck), Keke Coutee (knee)

Thursday injury report

DNP: Kenny Golladay (hip), Mike Evans (hamstring), Chase Claypool (illness), A.J. Brown (ankle)
Limited: Julio Jones (hamstring), Tee Higgins (hamstring), Jerry Jeudy (ankle), Allen Lazard (core), Equanimeous St. Brown (knee, concussion), Brandin Cooks (foot, neck), Keke Coutee (knee), Laviska Shenault (thumb)
Full: Nelson Agholor (ankle), Tyreek Hill (illness), Chris Godwin (finger), Terry McLaurin (ankle), Jarvis Landry (hip)

Wednesday injury report

Kenny Golladay remains absent from practices — nothing new to see here. Fantasy managers should be hitting the panic button (if they haven’t already) that there could be potential he is shut down for the season if he doesn’t make progress soon.

Tyreek Hill is listed with an illness and didn’t practice Wednesday. Considering the Great Clyde Edwards-Helaire incident of 2020, we’ll need to keep a close eye on the practice reports moving forward.

Chris Godwin didn’t practice Wednesday heading out of the Bucs’ bye week after undergoing a follow up procedure for his finger injury suffered earlier in the season. He’s played surprisingly well through the injury, but it remains unclear if he’ll be available to suit up Sunday.

Several wideouts landed on the injury report after limited practice sessions. Allen Robinson, Mike Evans, Michael Thomas and Terry McLaurin have all been circulating on the injury report despite the fact that they’ve been available for games. It’s possible these are just maintenance measures being taken as we approach the final stretch of 2020.

DNP: Equanimeous St. Brown (knee, concussion), Tyreek Hill (illness), Chris Godwin (finger), Kenny Golladay (hip)
Limited: Tee Higgins (hamstring), Keke Coutee (knee), Allen Robinson (knee), Mike Evans (hamstring), Breshad Perriman (shoulder), Alshon Jeffery (calf), Michael Thomas (ankle), Terry McLaurin (ankle)
Full: N/A

The top-15 performers in standard leagues for Week 13 is absolutely riddled with surprising names. We had guest performances from names like Corey Davis, with other surprises like Cole Beasley, Rashard Higgins, Keke Coutee peppered through the rankings.

T.Y. Hilton saw a season-high 11 targets in Week 13, posting his second-straight viable fantasy performance in the 2020 season. Over his last two outings, he’s produced 191 receiving yards and two scores on 16 targets. It remains to be seen if this production will continue, but he’s worth a speculative add heading into the playoffs, particularly considering his Week 15 matchup against the Texans.

With a down performance from Justin Herbert in Week 13, another first-year star may have taken the lead in the quest for rookie of the year honors — Justin Jefferson. Jefferson ranks third among all wide receivers with 1,039 receiving yards. He’s the only wideout who’s managed more than 900 receiving yards on fewer than 85 targets. If he finishes the season on a high-note, it’s hard to imagine he doesn’t take home this accolade. The last wide receiver to be chosen as the Rookie of the Year was Odell Beckham Jr. in 2014.

Injury news

Fantasy managers will need to keep an eye on the status of the Panthers wideouts, who were each placed on the Covid-19 list. It’s unclear for now if theres were positive tests or close contacts, so their availability remains up in the air for Week 14.

Julio Jones returned to the active lineup in Week 13 following a one-week absence for a hamstring injury. He played 94% of offensive snaps and finished the day with six catches for 94 receiving yards.

Jaguars wideout Laviska Shenault suffered a thumb injury in Week 13 just before halftime and was eventually ruled out. He’s considered day-to-day. If he’s out, WR Collin Johnson would be an intriguing DFS play. He’s led the team in targets and receiving yards in Mike Glennon’s two games as a starter for the Jaguars, managing a line of 8/162/1 in that span.

Bye weeks

There are no teams on bye in Week 14.

Streaming options

Corey Davis, Tennessee Titans

As soon as the Titans declined Corey Davis’ fifth-year option, he exploded for his best season yet in the NFL. He’s posted four games with more than 100 receiving yards on the season to pair with his four scores, even edging out star wideout A.J. Brown by 76 yards. Next up, Davis will face the Jacksonville Jaguars, who have allowed the fourth-most fantasy points to wideouts since Week 8. They’ve given up an average of 207 receiving yards to the position per game, the third-most among NFL teams, along with eight scores. Davis could continue to see plenty of opportunity in this plus matchup, particularly given that Jonnu Smith’s availability remains in question.

Allen Lazard, Green Bay Packers

Fantasy managers haven’t enjoyed much of Allen Lazard in 2020 after a hot start in his first three games where he totaled 254 receiving yards and two touchdowns. He required core muscle surgery, which left him on injured reserve uptil returning Week 11 against the Colts. He hasn’t yet worked up to his pre-injury snap share, but did manage to see the field on 69% of offensive plays in Week 13. In his last two games, he’s commanded ten targets, bringing seven of them in for 73 yards and a score. This week, he’ll play the Lions, who have allowed the most receiving yards to wideouts since Week 8, though allowing just just 3 touchdowns. Aaron Rodgers is playing at a near-MVP level, and Lazard is a direct beneficiary of that with high upside as we saw early on in 2020.
