Week 13 Fantasy WR PPR Rankings: Must-starts, sleepers, potential busts

Week 13 Fantasy WR PPR Rankings: Must-starts, sleepers, potential busts

Fantasy football owners could do without Buccaneers’ and Panthers’ wide receivers being on bye this week, as both teams feature some PPR staples, but our Week 13 WR PPR rankings are still fairly loaded through the starters’ tier. Injuries and COVID could eventually thin things out by kickoff next week, but for now, there are plenty of viable receivers for your start ’em, sit ’em decisions.

PPR formats allow for more worthwhile starting options, as high-target guys in bad matchups, such as CeeDee Lamb (@ Ravens), Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd (@ Dolphins), Jakobi Meyers (@ Chargers),JuJu Smith-Schuster and Diontae Johnson (vs. Washington), and Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk (vs. Bills), still have high floors and should be in most fantasy lineups. 

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

There are still plenty of receivers in bad matchups who are risky, though. Christian Kirk (vs. Rams), Mike Williams (vs. Patriots), Jalen Reagor and Travis Fulgham (@ Packers), Brandin Cooks (vs. Colts), and Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones (@ Bears) all fit that bill, and boom-or-bust, low-target receivers like Emmanuel Sanders (@ Falcons), Nelson Agholor (@ Jets), and Marquise Brown (vs. Cowboys) also are tough to trust. That latter group is full of players with highly favorable matchups, though, so their ceilings are high even in PPR.

If you need some more sleepers to slot in your lineups, Sterling Shepard (@ Seahawks) is as good as it gets in PPR formats, but Corey Davis (vs. Browns), Michael Pittman Jr. (@ Texans), and Jarvis Landry (@ Titans) should also have good games. Keelan Cole (@ Vikings), Darius Slayton (@ Seahawks), Josh Reynolds (@ Cardinals), Breshad Perriman (vs. Raiders), Darnell Mooney (vs. Lions), and Hunter Renfrow (@ Jets) aren’t quite as automatic for targets, but they have very exploitable matchups, as well, and have all seen significant targets in various games this year. 

If possible, fantasy owners will want to grab WR reinforcements early in the week in preparation for injuries/COVID announcements leading up to Sunday. That could always backfire, as the receivers you pick up could just as easily wind up being scratched, but it’s the one position where it’s easy to identify favorable matchups and you don’t necessarily need an injury to a starter in order for a secondary guy to have value. Plan ahead, stock up, and weigh all the factors (matchup, targets, etc.) when making your final lineup decisions.

Note: Check back all week leading up to kickoff, as we’ll continue to update our WR PPR rankings based on the latest news and injuries.
