2019 Fantasy Football Rankings: Wide receivers for Week 13

Ranking the best wide receivers by matchup and opportunity for Week 13 of the 2019 NFL Season.

NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New Orleans Saints Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

I’d like to use this space to shout out Michael Thomas, who is in the midst of a truly absurd season—and career, really. A year after catching 125 passes for 1,405 yards and nine touchdowns, Thomas is on pace to shatter those career marks. Through 11 games this season, the Ohio State product has caught 104 passes, six of which have been touchdowns, and accumulated 1,242 yards. He’s done all of that with a backup quarterback throwing to him in six of those games.

That production has translated into easily the most consistently dominant fantasy football receiver this year. Thomas hasn’t had a game under 12.9 fantasy points (0.5 PPR) all season and has eclipsed 21 points in five games, including each of his last three since the bye week. If you drafted Thomas in the first or early second round, you are likely sitting pretty right now. If you passed on him for someone like Davante Adams—like I did—you regret everything.
