Target Breakdown: Week 12 WR/TE Recap & Week 13 Sleepers

Target Breakdown: Week 12 WR/TE Recap & Week 13 Sleepers

This article is part of our Target Breakdown series.

It was a brutal week for injuries, and while big-name RBs may get most of the attention, TE arguably was hit just as hard given the shaky depth at the position. That last part is arguably less true this year than it was the past few seasons, but the not-as-think ranks are now thinning out with Darren Waller (knee), Pat Freiermuth (concussion) and Dan Arnold (knee) all picking up new injuries.

That said, none of the four teams on bye in Week 13 has provided much fantasy utility at tight end, and after that we'll have just one more week with missing teams (IND, MIA, NE, PHI in Week 14... my condolences to anyone with Jonathan Taylor on bye for a playoff matchup). We'll focus on WRs and TEs below, so check out sister article Backfield Breakdown (published every Monday) if you want details on what the Panthers did post-CMac or how the Lions handled their backfield without D'Andre Swift (among other things). Now let's look at the pass catchers....
