Fantasy Football Week 13 Wide Receiver Rankings

Well, this is it. In your league, it's do or die time. Either your last week or second to last week of the regular season. During this week, every move you make is under a microscope. That's where we come in. Let us be your scientists to scope out your team and help you make the smartest decision this week and next.

Before you read these ranks, please make sure you read this article from Kenneth Arthur here at Fake Teams. It's excellent, informative and extremely helpful. It'll help out any close calls you have between any players close to one another in the ranks.

Key injuries to note: Miles Austin may practice Thursday, but it's looking more and more likely that Laurent Robinson will start. If Austin does start, expect him to be eased into action as hamstrings tend to flare up. Robinson remains the safer play against a wretched Cardinals' secondary. I didn't rank Austin below because his status is up in the air. If Austin does play, I'd slot him in around 35. Seahawks WR Sidney Rice has been placed on IR thanks to a concussion. Rice is not doing a very good job shaking his injury-prone label this season. Rookie Slot WR Doug Baldwin stands to benefit the most. Perhaps Golden Tate will see more opportunities. Jeremy Maclin has yet to practice since injuring his hamstring, so Riley Cooper will start in his place against Seattle tonight, making him a sneaky play. Is Julio Jones healthy? It's tough to think he is as he put together a goose egg last week in a great match-up and did not practice Wednesday. Keep an eye on him today and tomorrow. Raiders top WR Denarius Moore injured his ankle last week and hasn't practiced yet this week, but he may play against Miami.

If your team is desperate for a win, I would not be against throwing some darts and playing some potential lottery tickets, like Johnny Knox for instance. Do anything to win.
