Start/Sit Advice: A.J. Brown and Demarcus Robinson are Wide Receivers To Pick Up Off Waiver Wire for Week 13

Out of the top 90 projected wide receivers (week 13) there are 45 owned in less than 65% of leagues. A.J. Brown is projected for 8.5 fantasy points which is good enough to be ranked #31 and tops among players who could be on the waiver wire based on relative lower ownership percentage. Other considerations at wide receiver include Ted Ginn and Demarcus Robinson. There are 22 wide receivers whose projected week 13 rank is much better than their actual rank. Tyreek Hill, at #2, is the highest ranking wide receiver of this 'must start' group. There are only 7 wide receivers who are projected to be week 13 fantasy busts. Randall Cobb, for example, is projected to be just the #53 wide receiver. He is still probably a fantasy starter for most owners.
