Final injury report
D.J. Chark was removed from the injury report for Week 13, though Chris Conley remains questionable. Regardless of the status of these wideouts for Sunday, they’ll be a liability in fantasy lineups with Mike Glennon under center.
As expected, Kenny Golladay was formally ruled out Friday with a hip injury. He hasn’t played since Detroit’s Week 8 matchup against the Colts. Considering how long this injury has lingered and the Lions’ lost season, it’s worth wondering if he’ll return at all this season.
Allen Robinson left Friday’s practice early with a knee injury. UDFA rookie Darnell Mooney is also questionable with a knee injury. If these two are out for Sunday, Jimmy Graham could be a sneaky PPR play at TE (as he occasionally has been through the 2020 season).
Julio Jones is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Saints. He was downgraded to DNP on Thursday, though he got in a limited practice session on Friday. He enters the weekend as a gametime decision, as the team will see how Julio performs in warmups. Even if active, he’s a risk for fantasy managers.
Out: Kenny Golladay (hip), Marquez Callaway (knee)
Questionable: Allen Robinson (knee), Darnell Mooney (knee), Julio Jones (hamstring), Terry McLaurin (ankle), Jerry Jeudy (ankle), Chris Conley (hip), Deonte Harris (neck)
Thursday injury report
Julio Jones appears to be trending in the wrong way for Sunday. After getting in a limited session Wednesday, he was downgraded to DNP for Thursday. Fantasy managers should plan for another absence.
Several wide receiver duos practiced in a limited fashion Thursday. D.J. Chark and Chris Conley continue to trend in the right direction with another limited practice session Thursday. Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton, though Colt McCoy’s track to starting for Week 13 makes neither an inspiring fantasy option.
Kenny Golladay continues to sit out with a hip injury. The team (and fantasy managers) should anticipate at least one more game without him, but luckily for Matthew Stafford, Danny Amendola is back to a full practice.
DNP: Kenny Golladay (hip), Nelson Agholor (ankle), Marquez Callaway (knee), Deonte Harris (neck), Julio Jones (hamstring)
Limited: Mike Thomas (hamstring), D.J. Chark (ribs), Chris Conley (hip), Breshad Perriman (shoulder), Michael Thomas (ankle), Sterling Shepard (toe, shoulder), Darius Slayton (shoulder, foot), Allen Lazard (core), Equanimeous St. Brown (knee)
Full: Jarvis Landry (hip), A.J. Brown (hip), Adam Humphries (concussion), Danny Amendola (hip), Zach Pascal (knee)
Wednesday Injury report
Wednesday was a busy day for wideouts on the injury report. The most notable DNP tag comes with Kenny Golladay. He’s played just five games on the season and doesn’t appear to be trending in the right direction just yet.
Jerry Jeudy got in a limited practice, listed with an ankle injury. It’s much of the same for him that we saw last week. Though he went catchless without a quarterback in Week 12, we should see him bounce back with Drew Lock under center. It is worth noting that Jeudy played a season-low 22 snaps in that outing.
The elite trio of Michael Thomas, Calvin Ridley and Julio Jones each got in a limited practice. The teams are likely just managing reps for Thomas and Ridley to keep them heathy. Jones is another story, as he’s been battling this hamstring issue all season. He’ll be a question mark on the week, and if active, could certainly face a limited snap count.
D.J. Chark and Chris Conley both got in limited practice sessions after missing Week 12 with an rib injury and hip injury, respectively. It’s a step in the right direction for both to play in Week 13. However, Mike Glennon was once again named the starting QB for the Jaguars. Their availability could raise Glennon’s floor, but having him under center will certainly lower their ceilings.
DNP: Auden Tate (shoulder), Malcolm Perry (chest), Kenny Golladay (hip), Marquez Callaway (knee), Deonte Harris (neck)
Limited: Mike Thomas (hamstring), Jerry Jeudy (ankle), Danny Amendola (hip), Zach Pascal (knee), D.J. Chark (ribs), Chris Conley (hip), Breshad Perriman (shoulder), Michael Thomas (ankle), Calvin Ridley (foot, ankle), Julio Jones (hamstring), Sterling Shepard (toe, shoulder), Darius Slayton (shoulder, foot), Allen Lazard (core)
Full: Adam Humphries (concussion)
We can summarize the performance of NFL wide receivers in Week 12 with two words — Tyreek Hill. We saw several big performance He stole the week after posting 200 receiving yards and two touchdown in the first quarter against the Bucs. He finished the day with 269 receiving yards and three touchdowns.
D.K. Metcalf didn’t disappoint either. He totaled 177 scoreless receiving yards. He’s had one of the highest floors of any receiver in fantasy football. He’s had fewer than 90 receiving yards in just three of his 11 games through the 2020 NFL Season.
Will Fuller had the second-best performance of his career on Thanksgiving, though he didn’t get to enjoy it for long. He and Watson connected six times for 171 yards and two touchdowns. Unfortunately, word came Tuesday that Fuller is facing a six-game suspension for PEDs. It’s a disappointing end to his healthiest season yet, where he was on pace for 1,279 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns. Fuller is entering a contract year and has yet to eclipse 1,000 receiving yards in a season.
D.J. Moore suffered a non-contact ankle injury in Week 12, but luckily, it seems that he avoided serious injury. The Panthers get a Week 13 bye for some extra rest; head coach Matt Rhule
Adam Thielen was out for Week 12 after being placed on the COVID-19 list. He is expected to rejoin the team for Week 13’s contest against Jacksonville.
The Bucs and Panthers are on a bye in Week 13. Fantasy managers will be without the Panthers receiving trio of D.J. Moore, Robby Anderson and Curtis Samuel. Bucs wideouts Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Antonio Brown will be out of lineups as well.
Corey Davis, Tennessee Titans
Don’t let A.J. Brown’s big week overshadow the work of the receiver opposite of him. Over the past three weeks, Corey Davis has commanded 16 targets, catching 13 of those for 250 yards. The only thing missing has been a touchdown. Next up, they’ll face the Browns. When looking at the stats of opposing fantasy wideouts, it would look as though they are a more daunting unit than they actually are. Since Week 8, wide receivers facing the Browns have struggled. However, three of their last four games have been at home, where they’ve been tortured by Mother Nature. On the road, away from Lake Erie, I expect them to give up a bit more to the home team. Davis has provided fantasy managers a relatively safe floor while still providing the upside for 100+ receiving yard games.
DeVante Parker, Miami Dolphins
DeVante Parker and Ryan Fitzpatrick were reunited in Week 12, as rookie Tua Tagovailoa manages a thumb injury. Tua’s status for Week 13 remains up in the air, but if Fitz-magic is under center, Parker will always be a start. Parker saw more than 10 targets and managed 100 receiving yards for the first time since Week 4 with Fitzpatrick in the lineup, and we should continue to see that rapport at home against a weak Bengals secondary. This unit is tied for the third-most touchdowns allowed to wide receivers on the season (14) and has allowed four 100 receiving yard games to wideouts since Week 6. I’ll take my chances with Parker in Week 13.
