The Top WRs To Start in Week 13

Josh Downs, Indianapolis Colts (@TEN)

Analysis by Jason Katz | After battling a knee injury for a couple of weeks, the bye week worked wonders for the rookie. Josh Downs looked fully healthy in Week 12 and was back to a 68% snap share. Unfortunately, he only managed five catches for 43 yards, scoring 9.3 fantasy points.

Fantasy managers may look at Downs’ last three games and be ready to abandon ship. Do not. Things are going to get better.

For starters, Downs is a talented player. That always helps. He was just inefficient last week. What I care about more are the 13 targets he was able to command, a season-high figure.

While the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were a favorable matchup for wide receivers last week and Downs couldn’t take advantage, it wasn’t for a lack of effort. I don’t think a second favorable matchup will get away from him.

The Tennessee Titans allow the sixth-most points per game (ppg) to wide receivers. More specifically, they allow the eighth-most ppg to the slot, where Downs primarily lines up. A whopping 72.2% of the total receiving yards allowed by the Titans go to wide receivers.

Michael Pittman Jr. is going to get his. But there should be plenty left for Downs as the clear second option in this passing game to post at least WR3, if not WR2, numbers this week.

Deebo Samuel, San Francisco 49ers (@PHI)

It’s been so up-and-down for Deebo Samuel this year in San Francisco. He’s had some massive performances here or there, but then he’s truly underwhelmed for the most part. That’s because he has to share the ball with so many other explosive playmakers in this offense.

Week 12 was a good week for Deebo, though, as he ended the week as a top-12 WR for fantasy purposes. That momentum should continue over into this massive Sunday afternoon showdown between the Philadelphia Eagles and the 49ers.

The Eagles’ secondary has been gashed so far this year, and they’re allowing the most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers up to this point of the 2023 NFL season. Samuel’s still boom-or-bust due to the nature of the offense and how many mouths there are to feed, but the upside is too high to think about sitting him.
