Week 13 of the NFL season means that bye weeks are in the past, and you are in the final weeks of finalizing your fantasy rosters before it's time for the playoffs.

Looking for sleepers is still an option, but you should be in a place where you are happy with your full fantasy roster.

At this point, it's about deciding on which matchups to start and which to sit.

In most leagues the most prominent position on a team is at wide receiver. Usually, fantasy owners will start three receivers each week.

Here is a look at three who will tear apart opposing secondaries this weekend.

Victor Cruz (New York Giants)

The New York Giants may be on a three game losing streak, but if you have started Cruz the last three weeks you are likely on a winning streak.

Cruz has been tearing it up since taking over as a starter on the Giants offense.

His 957 receiving yards currently has him tied for fourth in the league in receiving yards. This is despite not being a starter when the season initiated.

In his last three games he has 84, 128 and 157 receiving yards along with three touchdowns.

This weekend the Giants face the Packers, who despite being undefeated, are ranked 31st in yards allowed through the air.

The Giants may continue the losing streak, but Cruz should also continue his dominant play. 

Calvin Johnson Jr. (Detroit Lions)

This may seem like a no brainer, but it could be a bigger week than usual for Megatron.

The Detroit Lions take on the New Orleans Saints this weekend.

Despite making a statement in their huge win over the Giants, the Saints were still plagued by terrible play in their secondary on Monday Night Football.

It's been a consistent problem for the team all season.

Johnson ranks one spot ahead of Cruz in receiving yards with 1,023 this season. He also leads the league with 12 touchdown receptions.

Wes Welker (New England Patriots)

Don't believe a word that Bill Belichick says.

The Indianapolis Colts are terrible. The New England Patriots are going to destroy them this weekend.

The Patriots may be statistically ranked as the worst passing defense in the league, but the Colts are probably realistically the worst team in terms of passing defense.

The only difference is teams get such a huge lead that they stop passing the ball by halftime.

Wes Welker is the most targeted player in the league. It has resulted in him leading the league in receiving yards at 1,143.

Expect more of the same from Welker.
