DK Metcalf finally had the fantasy football performance managers were waiting for in Week 13. He finished as the overall WR1 in half-PPR scoring, bringing in six of his eight targets for 134 yards and three touchdowns. Houston Texans WR Tank Dell suffered a season-ending injury, which allowed Nico Collins to finish as the overall WR4.

Here are the wide receivers with the best fantasy football matchups in Week 14.

Fantasy football, Week 14: Best WR Matchups

CeeDee Lamb vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Lamb is the overall WR2 this season in half-PPR leagues. He’s tied for the fifth-most targets in the league and will be facing the Eagles for the second time this season. In the first matchup, Lamb brought in 11 of his 16 targets for 191 yards. He didn’t find the endzone but has scored at least one touchdown in each of the four games since.

Philadelphia’s defense allows the most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers. The Eagles lost their last game and struggled to slow down the San Francisco 49ers receivers. Deebo Samuel finished with 116 yards and two touchdowns, while Brandon Aiyuk had 46 yards on five receptions and a touchdown. Lamb should already see a large target share and has a great matchup, making him a must-start this week.

Courtland Sutton vs. Los Angeles Chargers

Sutton will face the Los Angeles Chargers for the first time this season in Week 14. He leads Denver’s pass-catchers across the board. Sutton heads into Week 14 with 50 receptions on 75 targets for 637 yards and nine touchdowns over 12 games. He is the overall WR21 in half-PPR scoring this year.

Sutton and the Broncos will face the swiss cheese Chargers’ defense that allows the third-most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers. Los Angeles only allowed 141 passing yards last week, but it was to Bailey Zappe and the New England Patriots. Sutton only came down with two of his seven targets for 77 yards and a touchdown in his last game. He has a touchdown in six of his last seven games.

Jayden Reed vs. New York Giants

Green Bay Packers quarterback Jordan Love has been playing out of his mind, and his wide receivers are benefitting. Rookie wideout Jayden Reed has impressed this season with 40 receptions on 64 targets for 513 yards and five touchdowns. He will take on the New York Giants defense this week that is allowing the fourth-most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers.

The Giants are coming off their bye week but have been better against wide receivers of late. They got torched for 404 passing yards by Dallas in Week 10 but allowed a combined 392 against the Washington Commanders and New England Patriots. Still, with how Love has been playing, Reed is a solid start this week, along with Romeo Doubs and Christian Watson, provided the latter two are healthy.
