Are Brandon Aiyuk, Van Jefferson, and Elijah Moore reliable?

As we make our push in the direction of the tip of the fantasy soccer season and upcoming playoffs, making WR begin ’em or sit ’em choices in Week 13 start to hold much more weight as groups separate themselves from the pack. With not all matchups being equal, listed here are our high broad receiver begin ’em and sit ’em performs for Week 13 of fantasy soccer.

Week 13 Begin ‘Em or Sit ‘Em: Broad Receivers

We are actually formally within the again half of the fantasy common season. Each begin or sit determination begins to imply simply that little bit extra each single week. Let’s get into this week’s begin ’em and sit ’em performs on the broad receiver place. Which broad receivers are begins heading into Week 13?

Begin ‘Em | Brandon Aiyuk, San Francisco 49ers (@ SEA)

Because the 49ers transfer ahead with out Deebo Samuel for a minimum of this week, Brandon Aiyuk turns into a must-start for fantasy. After getting out of Kyle Shanahan’s canine home, Aiyuk has been everywhere in the area. Since Week 8, he has 23 receptions on 32 targets for 336 yards with 2 touchdowns and has scored double-digit fantasy factors in 4 of his final 5 video games.

When he confronted the Seattle Seahawks final season, Aiyuk went off for 91 yards and a TD on 8 receptions. Might lightning strike once more? I’ll begin him within the hopes he comes by means of once more as a WR2 in Week 13.

Begin ‘Em | Hunter Renfrow, Las Vegas Raiders (vs. WAS)

Hunter Renfrow has moved from a fringe participant to a must-start fantasy possibility in Week 13. He has scored 12 or extra PPR factors in 4 of his final 5 video games. Renfrow additionally had 8+ targets in 4 of these contests and is coming off a 134-yard outing in Week 12.

The Raiders enter Week 13 with out Darren Waller, who has accounted for 23% of the targets and 25.9% of the air yards. Washington has allowed the fourth-most fantasy factors to receivers at 39.39. Renfrow is a must-start possibility in all codecs.

Begin ‘Em | Kendrick Bourne, New England Patriots (@ BUF)

Since Week 6, Kendrick Bourne is the No. 14 WR in PPR scoring. I don’t suppose anybody has realized this. When focused, Bourne is hauling in over 79% of his receptions and is seventeenth in receiving yards with 416. He’s solely seeing 4.4 targets per recreation however is averaging an enormous 16.6 yards per reception with 7.3 of these yards after the catch.

The Payments are not any joke as a protection, however dropping CB Tre’Davious White for the season (torn ACL) is very large. I don’t see Bourne ending as a high-end WR2 as he’s at the moment, however as a WR3/flex play, Bourne makes a ton of sense in Week 13.

Begin ‘Em | Van Jefferson, Los Angeles Rams (vs. JAX)

Regardless of all of the hype directed at Odell Beckham Jr., Van Jefferson is the receiver to roster and begin in Los Angeles not named Cooper Kupp. Jefferson has seen 7+ targets in 4 of his final 5 video games and 6+ in seven of his earlier 9. He’s coming off a 3-reception, 93-yard recreation with a rating final week.

Jefferson has performed on over 93% of the snaps in 4 of his final 5 video games. Moreover, he’s run routes on 96.1% of his passing downs. I really like Jefferson to get his second rating in as many video games towards the Jaguars as a must-start WR3.

Week 13 Begin ‘Em or Sit ‘Em: Broad Receivers

Typically, broad receivers have a problematic matchup. Or perhaps it comes all the way down to inconsistent play, which forces them to stay in your bench. Regardless of the purpose, these WRs must be left off your beginning roster in Week 13.

Sit ‘Em | Courtland Sutton, Denver Broncos (@ KC)

I hate benching objectively good gamers. No matter his season up to now, Courtland Sutton is an objectively good participant. With that stated, Sutton isn’t startable in fantasy proper now. Final Sunday, Sutton was solely focused 3 occasions, recording 2 receptions for 17 yards. It was the fourth straight recreation he generated 40 yards or much less and scored 6 or fewer PPR factors. 

Since Week 8 — when Jerry Jeudy rejoined the Broncos –, Sutton has seen 10.4% of the targets and is averaging 1.8 receptions and 23.8 yards per recreation. Can issues get proper? Certain. However for now, Sutton can’t be trusted with any confidence.

Sit ‘Em | Elijah Moore, New York Jets (vs. PHI)

I hate this, and the half that worries me probably the most is I noticed it coming. I said final week I used to be anxious Zach Wilson would possibly spoil Elijah Moore, and we have been going to be wishing we had Joe Flacco again in our lives. Effectively, guess what? Apparently, we aren’t allowed to have good issues, as Moore noticed an enormous drop-off in Week 12. Whereas he did see 8 targets, he had simply 4 receptions for 46 yards, totaling 9.3 fantasy factors. 

That’s an enormous dip for the man who was the No. 1 WR in PPR scoring from Weeks 8-11. The workload stays a optimistic, however the high quality of targets has declined with Wilson. Add in Darius Slay and the Eagles’ No. 3 protection towards WRs, and Moore could be higher left in your bench for now.

Sit ‘Em | Kenny Golladay, New York Giants (@ MIA)

Kenny Golladay noticed 7 targets final week towards the Eagles, catching 3 for 50 yards, which was his greatest recreation since Week 4. Golladay might see one other heavy goal load in Week 13 with Sterling Shepard and Kadarius Toney coping with quadriceps points. 

With that stated, we don’t even know who the quarterback will likely be for the Giants as Daniel Jones is coping with a strained neck. We might see this offense operated by Mike Glennon. It’s often an excellent matchup to focus on towards the Miami Dolphins, who enable the third-most factors to WRs (40.69), however Golladay might battle towards Xavien Howard. 

Sit ‘Em | Marvin Jones, Jacksonville Jaguars (@ LAR)

Marvin Jones had a sensational catch final week, however that’s additionally about the place issues ended. Jones caught 4 of seven targets for 43 yards and remained the highest goal on this offense, however that doesn’t imply all that a lot while you play on the Jaguars.

Outdoors of James Robinson, I don’t suppose there’s a Jacksonville participant that must be in your lineup. Plus, now we have a Jalen Ramsey revenge recreation which clearly ideas the scales.
