Week 13 Fantasy Football Rankings: 5 Wide Receiver Sleepers
It's Week 13 and that means one thing in fantasy fantasy football.
Your league's playoffs are starting real soon.
If you have one of those teams that's on the bubble of making it to the postseason, then you are going to have to find some sleepers to take your team to the next level.
Here are five wide receiver sleepers for Week 13 that you should consider playing.
Brandon Stokley, Denver Broncos
Brandon Stokley may not put up the most flashy numbers, but he consistently plays a role in the Denver Broncos passing offense.
In his last three games, Stokley has caught 12 passes (on 17 targets) for 171 yards and two touchdowns. With the Broncos going up against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this week, who have the last-ranked pass defense, Peyton Manning should easily torch this secondary.
Stokley should see a significant amount of targets and I would look to play him in a PPR league.
Reuben Randle, New York Giants
Domenik Hixon wasn't able to go last week, so Reuben Randle filled in for him and sure enough scored the first NFL touchdown of his career.
The New York Giants are playing the Washington Redskins on Monday night and I expect the Giants to come out trying to pick apart their secondary. The Redskins defense has been horrible against the pass, ranking 31st in the league.
If Hixon is out again, Randle will be the No. 3 receiver again and should see some looks from Eli Manning.
Davone Bess, Miami Dolphins
Davone Bess has been a phenomenal PPR receiver the last two weeks, catching 13 passes (20 targets) for 179 yards and a touchdown.
Bess has always been a solid PPR receiver and he should continue his impressive play this week as the Miami Dolphins take on the New England Patriots. The Patriots have the 29th-ranked pass defense, so expect Bess to get targeted at least 10 times.
Definitely look to start Bess in a PPR league if you are in need of a wide receiver.
T.Y. Hilton, Indianapolis Colts
In his last two games, Hilton has been one of the better wide receivers in fantasy football, recording nine catches for 133 yards and four touchdowns.
Andrew Luck appears to be using other receivers now besides Reggie Wayne, so expect Hilton to continue to put up impressive numbers. The Indianapolis Colts take on the Detroit Lions this week, who have the 12th-ranked pass defense, but I don't see that being a problem for Hilton.
Josh Gordon, Cleveland Browns
I know it's rough to have a Cleveland Browns wide receiver in your starting lineup, but if there was any week where it's okay it is this one.
The Browns are playing the Oakland Raiders, who haven't allowed less than 34 points in a game for the last four weeks. Josh Gordon is the Browns' best wide receiver, so don't be surprised if he finds the end zone more than once against the Raiders' atrocious defense.
