Week 14 Fantasy WR Rankings

At last, we’re at the final week of byes. Soon, we’ll have the healthy options from all 32 teams at our disposal. However, we’re still looking to pick up the pieces from wide receivers out of action this week, and our Week 14 fantasy WR rankings can help you make the right start ’em, sit ’em decisions.

The most notable wideouts on bye are Michael Pittman Jr., Jaylen Waddle, DeVonta Smith, and Kendrick Bourne. Luckily, none have teammates that dramatically affect rosters, so we’re in the clear. Welcome back Davante Adams (vs. Bears) and D.J. Moore (vs. Falcons), who immediately draw juicy matchups. It’s worth noting Julio Jones (vs. Jaguars) can return from IR this week after dealing with a hamstring issue, and he’ll be a very risky start, but with A.J. Brown (chest) on IR, it would be tough to resist starting him against Jacksonville.

Quarterback | Running back | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

Chris Godwin (vs. Bills), Mike Evans (vs. Bills), and Cooper Kupp (@ Cardinals) have daunting matchups ahead of them, but you’re not taking those guys out of your lineups. One of Evans or Godwin could bust, but the upside is way too great.

If you’re deciding between players on the start-or-sit bubble, we’re high on Elijah Moore (vs. Saints), Chase Claypool (@ Vikings), Emmanuel Sanders (vs. Buccaneers), and the aforementioned Julio Jones (vs. Jaguars). New Orleans and Minnesota are among the bottom-three defenses against fantasy WRs. Jacksonville is the 11th-worst. Those three WRs all rank as top-24 players for us this week.

Lower down the list, Corey Davis (vs. Saints), Robby Anderson (vs. Falcons), Tre’Quan Smith (@ Jets), Jerry Jeudy and Courtland Sutton (vs. Lions), Michael Gallup (@ Washington), and Cole Beasley (vs. Buccaneers) all have favorable matchups, too. They all carry risk and bust potential, which is why they aren’t ranked higher, but each WR is in a position to have a productive week. The next tier of players with solid matchups is Marquez Valdes-Scantling (@ Bears), Marquez Callaway and Deonte Harris (@ Jets), Curtis Samuel (vs. Cowboys), Nico Collins (vs. Seahawks), Marvin Jones, Laquon Treadwell, and Laviska Shenault (@ Titans), and Jamison Crowder (vs. Saints). Those are all boom-or-bust players, but if you’re in deep leagues, you might need to consider one.

On the other side of the start-sit line, Rashod Bateman (@ Browns), A.J. Green (vs. Rams), Allen Robinson (@ Packers), and Josh Reynolds and Amon-Ra St. Brown (@ Broncos) are in real danger this week. Some may never consider starting these guys to begin with, but all have been productive in spurts this year, so beware in deeper leagues. Also, beware of constant injury worries Kadarius Toney and Sterling Shepard (@ Chargers). They have plenty of upside if they play — even in a tough matchup with a backup QB throwing to them — but they shouldn’t be counted on until we see them on the final active list. 

The matchup numbers can tell us a lot at this point in the year, but we know wide receivers only need one big play to pay off. There are plenty of potential sleepers available this week based on the stats, but you shouldn’t ignore target trends either. Balance the two out and you’ll find your starters. 

Note: We’ll be updating these WR rankings as needed throughout the week, so check back for the latest changes and analysis.
