Here are my Week 12 wide receiver fantasy football rankings. There are plenty of great matchups this week to take advantage of in your fantasy leagues.

D.J. Moore has done more than enough to earn my respect this week has he’s coming off two stellar fantasy performances and gets to take on the Vikings this week. Even if Teddy Bridgewater doesn’t suit up this week, I saw enough out of P.J. Walker to trust Moore as a WR1 this week.

I’m going all in on a bounce back performance for Jakobi Meyers. Outside of last week in which he saw only three targets, Meyers has seen at least six targets when he’s on the field. The Cardinals secondary has been the worst against wide receivers the last couple of weeks and I fully expect Meyers to bounce back as the Patriots top receiver and Cam Newton’s favorite target.

On the flipside, I have DeAndre Hopkins REAL low this week because I trust Stephon Gilmore. He’s back and healthy and you can bet Bill Belichick will stick him on Hopkins and say ELIMINATE! We’ve seen no shows from Hopkins this season and I’m preparing for another one this week.

Welcome to WR2 status Michael Pittman Jr! I’ve been all kinds of hyped about this kid in recent weeks and with two strong performances back-to-back, I’m trusting he’ll get you another solid outing against a bad Titans secondary.

I had trouble figuring out how low to put the Bengals top pass catchers. Likely neither Tyler Boyd nor Tee Higgins finish in the top 48 this week but I really had a hard time not ranking them at least in the bottom of the list. We’ll see. I could be proven entirely wrong on this.
