Week 13 WR Start, Sit Fantasy Strategy: Corey Davis Is Well Worth A Start


As we get into the bye weeks, you might have some limited options. I tend to focus on lesser names that might not be on your radar as guys to slide right in. Injuries have also piled up now at the wide receiver position, so if a name in the sit section is the only option and have been producing, you can take your shot. However, I would advise you to see if any of the names in the start section this week are out there to be picked up. Check out our rankings, start sit tool, and fantasy football projections for this week to help make those tough decisions.

Start Em

Corey Davis Vs Cleveland Browns

Corey Davis is in a great spot this week against the Browns, who are missing essentially their entire secondary. Over the first half of the season, the Browns were giving up a ton of fantasy points and then a few heavy wind games that helped their cause. Davis has been solid and while we think of Brown as the guy, Davis is having a productive season.

Breshad Perriman Vs Las Vegas Raiders

Breshad Perriman has been playing well and both him and Denzel Mims are intriguing starts this week against the Raiders, who are allowing 38.3 PPR points per game to receivers on the season. He has 19 targets over the last three weeks and has three touchdowns and two games over 75 receiving yards. Mims has 23 targets over the last three games and 60+ receiving yards in each.

T.Y. Hilton @ Houston Texans

It took a trailing game for TY Hilton to get his first touchdown. This isn’t a reaction to last week as this is more the Texans secondary is abysmal and lost Roby to suspension. Hilton and Michael Pittman are intriguing starts this week against a bad Texans defense who have allowed 15 touchdowns to receivers this season and the 10th most fantasy points per game.

Jarvis Landry @ Tennessee Titans

Outside of last week, Jarvis Landry has had a quiet year. This is a game where there should be plenty of fantasy points and Landry will likely be trailing and in a favorable spot. The Titans are allowing the 9th most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers this season. Landry has had a solid group of targets of late, and Cleveland’s pass offense has been limited in the past few games due to poor weather.

Sit Em

Jamison Crowder Vs. Las Vegas Raiders

Since coming back from injury, Jamison Crowder has seen 11 targets in three games. Outside of the great touchdown grab against the Patriots, he has not surpassed 40 receiving yards in a game or three catches. We have seen Mims and Perriman take a bulk of the targets and less Crowder. While the matchup is solid, the volume is a concern for the rest of the year.

Philadelphia EaglesJalen Reagor @ Green Bay Packers

The Packers are allowing 21.7 fantasy points per game to wide receivers this season and when you factor in Carson Wentz is having a horrendous season. While the Eagles might be in a favorable game script, it hasn’t mattered much. Philadelphia is also getting Zach Ertz back and the logjam of targets is likely for Reagor the last of the year. He had a small window of being a reliable target option but failed to do much with it.

Christian Kirk Vs Los Angeles Rams

The Rams have held opposing wide receivers to the fewest fantasy points per game this season. While Kirk will avoid Jalen Ramsey for the most part, this is still a good unit and Kyler Murray also doesn’t quite look right. Kirk has been a touchdown-dependent option, for the most part, this season and I don’t trust him as an option other than a deep league WR3 where there are limited options.

Tyler Boyd @ Miami Dolphins

While it was a one-game sample size, I saw enough from the Bengals to go with other options over the Bengals wide receivers. There are still three wide receivers in this group getting targets and now the targets are not as strong anymore with Joe Burrow out. This is disappointing as both Boyd and Higgins were having strong seasons and now things have come to a screaming halt. Miami has a solid secondary and defense. Hard to see them generating much offense this week.
