Week 13 Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em – WRs

Each week The Kommish will be giving start/sit advice by position. Check back weekly for updates.


QB     |     RB     |     WR     |     TE     |     K     |     DEF


Start ‘Em

Demaryius Thomas (Broncos v. Bucs)

Thomas has been a solid receiver in 2012 now that he’s learned to jive with new QB, Peyton Manning. In Week 13 the Broncos will be facing a Bucs defense that is ranked 32nd in the league versus the pass. A weak pass D faced with a defense slicing QB will make for a big day for Thomas.


Roddy White / Julio Jones (Falcons v. Saints)

Top 5 WRs facing the third worst pass defense in the league is a recipe for fantasy receiving success. Look for both White and Jones to potentially have good days against the Saints substandard defense.


Victor Cruz (Gianst @ Redskins)

The Redskins are giving up the 2nd most points to wide receivers this season. On average opposing WRs are scoring 27.2 fantasy points per week when facing Washington, so look for the Eli to Cruz connection to be workin’ in Week 13.


Ryan Broyles (Lions v. Colts)

Broyles stepped into the #2 WR position last week while Titus Young served a conduct suspension. His status for Week 13 is currently unclear, but her certainly made the case for taking over the job full time. The Lions face a Colts pass defense that is giving up an average of  24.5 fantasy points to WRs this season. Combine that with the fact that Indy will have to be rolling significant coverage Calvin Johnsons way and you have a recipe for success for the #2 receiver.


Sit ‘Em

Torrey Smith (Ravens v. Steelers)

Torrey Smith, Joe Flacco, and the Ravens will be facing the #1 pass defense in the league in Week 13. The Steelers are giving up a league low 14.5 fantasy points to wide receivers. Steer clear of Ravens receivers this week if you can.


Malcolm Floyd (Chargers v. Bengals)

The Chargers offense has been a rollercoaster this year, and Rivers has been well short of reliable. In Week 13 they will be facing a Bengals defense that has only been giving up an average of 16.2 fantasy points to receivers this season. This could spell more offensive woes for San Diego.


Sidney Rice (Seahawks @ Bears)

I don’t think I would trust any offensive player in this matchup as both the Seattle and Chicago defenses are brutal. The Bears have had a ridiculous pass rush and they have been the 8th best defense in the league in terms of points allowed to receivers.


Danny Amendola (Rams v. 49ers)

Questionable injury status aside, Amendola is a risky pick this week facing the 49ers. San Fran is giving up a lowly 16.4 points to WRs this season.
