Fantasy Football 2022: Week 12 Wide Receiver Rankings

If you are on the cusp of making the playoffs, then it is do-or-die every week. Lucky for you I have my Week 12 wide receiver rankings ready and at your disposal. Two great things are happening in Week 12. One is we have three games on Thursday and two is we have no bye-week teams.

Since there is no bye week this week, this could hurt you in the way that your opponent this week also has all his receivers. So, you just need to know who to start this week.

Week 12 Wide Receiver Notes:

  • Christian Kirk has been a hidden gem this year. He has two top-five finishes in his past two weeks and I expect another top-10 finish this week. He has the Ravens this week who are giving up the seventh most fantasy points per game to wide receivers. On paper, the Ravens have a top defense. But injuries have derailed their season. However, even though they are healthy, Kirk is that good this season. He is averaging 8.2 targets this season and that easily shows that he is the top target on this offense.
  • Brandon Aiyuk is slowly creeping up on my list as WR21. He is a great flex start this week against the New Orleans Saints. He has three touchdowns in his last three games and has outplayed Deebo Samuel. Play Aiyuk while he is hot. The Saints are giving up 27.9 fantasy points per game to wide receivers.
  • Jaylen Waddle is my WR7 this week and his teammate Tyreek Hill is WR1. They have a great matchup this week against the Texans. This game should be a shootout, meaning lots of opportunities for both. Waddle is a WR1 this week and should be the rest of the season.
  • Lastly, I have DJ Moore as my WR35 this week. I want to believe in Moore, but his production isn’t happening. Some decent news is that Sam Darnold will be the starter this week. This could help as Darnold could look his way all game. But it is a long shot with Moore. I have him on the bench this week or flex start if you have injuries.
