Finding a consistent wide receiver who can be a WR1 is becoming more difficult by the week. Antonio Brown and Keenan Allen showcased some flashes of potential in week 13, but it still couldn’t pass Dante Pettis as the top wide receiver from week 13.

And if you can guess who Pettis actually plays for, you’re doing better than 90 percent of NFL fans.

Good luck with the wide receivers in the fantasy football playoffs, with the week 14 fantasy football start ’em, sit ’em for wide receivers guide.


Kenny Golladay vs. Arizona Cardinals

The volume that Golladay receives on a weekly basis is reason to keep believing in him in this Detroit offense.

The Lions just don’t have enough weapons to spread around the ball. That means Golladay should continue to see plenty of targets.

He has at least eight targets in the last four games, with a combined 44 during that time. Despite those targets, he hasn’t been as productive as in the previous two weeks. He has just eight catches in the last two games.

Even though the Cardinals do have a respectable defense, I’ll still back Golladay as a solid WR2.

Doug Baldwin vs. Minnesota Vikings

The Seahawks are going to have to utilize the passing game to move the ball against Minnesota. That should be a primary reason to start Baldwin against Minnesota.

The Vikings are a top-five defense against the run. With Russell Wilson at the helm, the Seahawks would be wise to abandon the run and target multiple wide receivers, including Baldwin.

Despite some not-so-productive outings in recent weeks, Baldwin should be a primary weapon and be closer to the 10-target mark, where he had been two weeks ago.

Jarvis Landry vs. Carolina Panthers

Carolina’s pass defense has fallen off the map. The Panthers allow the 10th-most fantasy point per game to wide receivers and this matchup screams for solid production from Cleveland skill position players.

Landry hasn’t been consistent as consistent as a fantasy weapon when he played in Miami. However, he has his moments, and this matchup should be a prime position for Landry to to be productive.

Landry had nine targets for more than 100 yards receiving in week 13. That should continue this week against a bad Carolina secondary.


Chris Godwin vs. New Orleans Saints

The New Orleans Saints don’t have a great defense.

However, in recent weeks, the Saints have been better-than-advertised in allowing fantasy points to wide receivers.

New Orleans is allowing less than 20 fantasy points per game, a top-10 number in the last four weeks. That means I’m not as sold on the Buccaneers as many experts. Godwin is a low-target wide receiver, who has had some solid productive moments.

In the first round of the fantasy playoffs, it’s difficult to trust Godwin, who isn’t the No. 1 and has to compete for targets with other wide receivers on the Tampa Bay roster.

Corey Davis vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

I’m not sold on the Titans offense against the Jaguars.

Davis hasn’t been terrible in the last five weeks, generating three touchdowns in that time period and netting double-digit fantasy points on three separate occasions. However, in a low-volume passing offense, it’s not a wise decision to believe in touchdowns with the playoffs happening in fantasy football.

The Jaguars looked like the Jaguars from a year ago in week 13. That defense should continue to be stout in week 14, meaning Davis will not achieve the results desired out of fantasy owners.

Anthony Miller vs. Los Angeles Rams

The Bears can’t sustain multiple wide receivers with Chase Daniel at quarterback. Now if Mitch Trubisky returns, that gives Miller better odds. However, even if Trubisky returns, I’m still not banking on Miller in a plus-matchup.

The Rams pass defense has been terrible in recent weeks. However, with uncertainty at the quarterback position, the Bears are unable to sustain reliable wide receivers in fantasy football.

Miller has just nine combined targets in the last three weeks. That isn’t enough to warrant any attention in week 14 by fantasy football owners.
