The Top WRs To Start in Week 12

DJ Moore, Chicago Bears

The Bears wanted to keep Justin Fields comfortable, and that resulted in more rush attempts (18) than completions (16). Even with the limited number of throws, Moore had no problem paying off loyal fantasy managers who went back to him in Fields’ return to action.

MORE: Fantasy News Tracker

In the heartbreaking loss to the Detroit Lions, Moore earned 40.9% of the targets, bumping his rate during Fields’ past three healthy games to a robust 35.4%. The lack of volume and matchup against an improving defense would normally scare me, but given the eyes that Fields has for the WR1 that he hasn’t had in the past, Moore is a WR2 for me this week.

I’m comfortable in playing him ahead of star receivers like the Cincinnati Bengals’ Ja’Marr Chase, the Seattle Seahawks’ DK Metcalf, and the Washington Commanders’ Terry McLaurin.

Zay Flowers, Baltimore Ravens

The rookie leads the Ravens with a 23.9% target share this season, and with Mark Andrews being second on that list at 22.9%, the time is now or never for Flowers.

He hasn’t been a top-30 receiver in four straight games after posting three straight weeks as such, leaving fantasy managers no choice but to bench him.

Scared money doesn’t make money. I have Flowers returning to top-30 form this weekend against the second-worst per-attempt pass defense in the NFL and rewarding the managers who have stayed with the kid through a rough stretch.

Giddy up!
