Week 13 Fantasy WR PPR Rankings



We’re far enough into the season to know who the year-long studs and busts at wide receiver are, but that doesn’t mean we’re off the hook in searching for weekly sleepers and borderline guys sitting precariously on the start ’em, sit ’em bubble. Our Week 13 fantasy WR PPR rankings aim to help you find the best options.

PPR phenom Davante Adams is out on a bye, but D.J. Moore is the only other stud we’re concerned about losing. Cleveland and Tennessee are also on byes, but neither currently has any wide receivers worth starting most weeks anyway.

Among players on the start-or-sit bubble, we like Christian Kirk and A.J. Green (vs. Bears), Michael Gallup (@ Saints), Odell Beckham Jr. (vs. Jaguars), and Brandon Aiyuk (@ Seahawks). Beckham and Aiyuk came into the season looking like they could be studs, but lack of consistency has plagued their fantasy prospects. However, these matchups warrant real starting consideration, as they’ve both emerged as decent options in recent weeks. Kirk and Green could obviously eat into each other’s production, but at least one of them should have a great day against a bottom-10 unit at limiting fantasy wideouts. Gallup still has plenty of boom-or-bust upside even with Amari Cooper (COVID) and CeeDee Lamb (concussion) expected back, as the Saints are allowing the most fantasy points per game to WRs. 

Van Jefferson (vs. Jaguars) and Rashod Bateman (@ Steelers) also have matchups against WR-friendly secondaries, so we give you the green light on those guys, too. Bateman probably has the higher floor and ceiling, though. Sterling Shepard (@ Dolphins), Kadarius Toney (@ Dolphins), and Davante Parker and Will Fuller (vs. Giants) have all dealt with their fair share of injuries this season. but if healthy, they might be worth rolling the dice on given the matchups.

There’s also a lot to like about Russell Gage (vs. Buccaneers), Tre’Quan Smith (vs. Cowboys), T.Y. Hilton (vs. Texans), DeSean Jackson (vs. Washington), and Josh Reynolds (@ Vikings) this week, those they have varying degrees of floors in PPR leagues. Jackson, Hilton, and Reynolds are riskier than the others, but Smith and Gage are catching a decent volume of passes and should be able to provide at least a little something. 

Corey Davis and Elijah Moore (vs. Eagles), Cole Beasley and Emmanuel Sanders (vs. Patriots), and Jakobi Meyers (@ Bills) have all had their moments this year, but when the matchup isn’t right, they are best suited for your bench. Also, the Chiefs’ defense has better than you might think against WRs, so Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick could easily have disappointing days. Jerry Jeudy is playable in PPR leagues, but his ceiling is ultimately limited, too.

At this point in the year, we can trust the matchup statistics and target share figures, so it’s best to not overthink the start-or-sit decisions unless there are injuries or emerging usage trends that can’t be ignored. 

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