Ryan Heath’s WR Rankings
- Marquise Brown came back from injury before his Week 13 bye and immediately posted a 30% target share while leading the Cardinals in routes. There is definitely an argument to be made that he should be ranked above even DeAndre Hopkins, especially if Brown continues to move into the slot and face softer coverage inside. The Patriots rank as the 10th-most generous defense against opposing wide receivers over the last month.
- In seven games with Baker Mayfield under center, DJ Moore has averaged 8.1 PPR points per game. In his five games without Mayfield, Moore has averaged 15.6. It’s hard not to push him up the ranks coming off a bye and his second 100-yard performance of the season against a Seahawks defense that has allowed the 7th-most points to opposing receivers in the last four weeks.
- Mack Hollins is in play for one last week, as he faces the Rams on Thursday Night Football before the schedule considerably toughens. Hollins has been the WR31 in OPPO per game over the last month, and boasts decent touchdown equity in a Raiders offense that ranks 8th in implied total this week.
- D.J. Chark led the Lions in routes last week and had 48% of the team’s air yards (12th among all receivers in Week 13). This Lions/Vikings game has the highest over/under of the week, so if you’re desperate at receiver, you could do worse than this. Jameson Williams ran just two routes on offense last week. There’s not much reason to expect that to dramatically increase right away as he works his way back from an ACL tear.
