There are a few wide receivers widely available that either have good matchups heading into Week 14, or had successful Week 13 performances, or could benefit from an injury. With that in mind, here are six with under 50% ownership in traditional fantasy football leagues that managers can consider picking up for Week 14.
T.Y. Hilton, Indianapolis Colts (45 percent)
Next up — @LV, HOU, @PIT, JAX
Hilton is finally coming around and tallied eight receptions for 110 yards and a score in Week 13 after notching a season-high 81 receiving yards the previous week. His chemistry with Philip Rivers is improving and he’ll face the Houston Texans a second time before the regular season is open.
Keke Coutee, Houston Texans (27 percent)
Next up — @CHI, @IND, CIN, TEN
Will Fuller has been suspended for the remainder of the season and Coutee could challenge Brandin Cooks for the WR1 spot. Coutee led all Texans with eight receptions for 141 receiving yards against the Indianapolis Colts’ stingy secondary so he could put up big numbers against lesser competition as well.
Tim Patrick, Denver Broncos (21 percent)
Next up — @CAR, BUF, @LAC, LV
Patrick has 20 fewer targets than Jerry Jeudy but leads the Broncos in receptions, receiving yards, and touchdowns catches. His two-score performance against the Steelers put him back on the fantasy radar for a lot of managers ahead of Week 14, but he also has three games with more than 100 receiving yards this season. He’s led all Denver wideouts in snaps for three straight weeks.
Cordarelle Patterson, Chicago Bears (7 percent)
Next up — HOU, @MIN, @JAX, GB
Patterson is a more of a gadget player than a receiver and found the end zone for the second time in three weeks in his last outing. The return specialist has doubled as a backup running back lately and ran for 59 yards and a score in Week 13. He’s reached double-digits in carries twice in his last three games and is just as much of a threat to score as David Montgomery if his number gets called in enemy territory.
Rashard Higgins, Cleveland Browns (8 percent)
Next up — LV, @SEA, @LAR, CLE
Higgins racked up six catches for 95 yards and a score on nine targets after laying low for four weeks. Jarvis Landry had a team-high 10 targets but Higgins played one more snap than the WR1. Higgins hasn’t been a staple in Cleveland’s offense this year but boom potential could make him viable in deep leagues.
