At this point in the fantasy season you are probably more likely to find a breakout running back then wide receiver. That being said, there are some wide receivers who could get the opportunity to help your fantasy team over the last few weeks of the season:
Chris Godwin owned in 47.4% of ESPN leagues
Godwin has been very familiar to our waiver wire lists over the entire season. While Chris Godwin has six double-digit fantasy point games on the season he only has one in his last 4 weeks and has not had a touchdown since week 6. That being said, the second-year wide receiver has the opportunity for a bigger game in week 12 facing a subpar San Francisco defense. The uncertainty pertaining to OJ Howard ankle injury could also provide a larger opportunity for Godwin in the Buccaneers passing game.
Christian Kirk owned in 26.3% of leagues
The rookie wide receiver has had a bit of an up-and-down season just like the rest of the Cardinals offense. Things have started to trend up for Kirk in the last few weeks with Byron Leftwich now calling the offense. Kirk only has two games on the season with more than four receptions, but has topped 40 yards in all but two games since week three.
Josh Reynolds owned in 26.1% of leagues
I had mentioned Reynolds in my waiver wire article for week 11 as he moves into Cooper Kupp’s spot as the third wide receiver for the Rams who run over 90% of their plays from the three wide receiver set. Reynolds did not disappoint this week going for 6 receptions, 80 yards, and a touchdown in a wild Monday night football game against the Chiefs. The Rams no head into their bye but if you do not pick up Reynolds this week you can forget about adding him to your fantasy roster because he will not be available. If you need wide receiver help for your fantasy roster going into the playoffs pick up Reynolds now before it’s too late.
Keke Coutee owned in 14.3% of leagues
Coutee has proven to be a Target monster for Deshaun Watson when Will Fuller is out of the lineup. Even with the Texans picking up Demaryius Thomas, the rookie wide receiver still finished with nine targets, five receptions, and 77 yards in week 11 against the Redskins. As long as his hamstrings stay healthy, Coutee should continue to be a solid PPR option down the stretch as the Texans face some weaker defenses against wide receivers.
Tre’Quan Smith owned in 13.3% of leagues
Smith put up another monster game for the Saints in week 11 against Philadelphia. He was unable to build upon his last big game in week 5 and even had a game with zero targets against Cincinnati just one week before this latest break out. Overall, the offense for the Saints runs through Drew Brees, Alvin Kamara, and Michael Thomas. Wild there will be games were Smith can put up big numbers, which includes week 12 against a decimated Atlanta defense, he will mainly be a boom or bust option that’s cannot be trusted for consistent production.
Dontrelle Inman owned in 0.2% of leagues
Inman has had a solid month a football filling in as the number 2 wide receiver for the Indianapolis Colts. Over his last three contests he has 14 catches on 17 targets and a touchdown with a minimum of 34 yds in a game. Inman provides decent size as a possession receiver and does have a history of solid production earlier in his career with the Chargers. While this may not be the sexiest add to your fantasy football roster Inman could be a serviceable fill-in for your wide receivers should you be facing bye weeks or injuries.
