On Thursday Denzel Mims was ruled out for Week 14 against the Seahawks by Jets head coach Adam Gase. Mims is away from the team dealing with family issues and will not be available. Mike Evans hasn't been ruled out, but he was downgraded from limited on Wednesday to no practice on Thursday. So you need to replace Mims if he was in your starting lineup and be prepared to do the same with Evans. 

Thankfully there are still starting options available on the waiver wire. Keke Coutee is still rostered in just 62% of leagues and he's a consensus top 36 receiver this week. Sterling Shepard is right in the same neighborhood, and should be improved with Daniel Jones returning in Week 14. Tim Patrick is available in more than a third of leagues and he continues to be the No. 1 receiver in Denver.

In a deeper league than that? Breshad Perriman should benefit the most from Mims' absence. He's the only deep threat left on the Jets and has a great matchup against Seattle. Perriman has three games this season with at least seven targets and he's scored double digit Fantasy points in all of them. 

In an even deeper league? Collin Johnson is available in more than 90% of CBS leagues and he has 14 targets over the past two weeks. He also has an excellent matchup against a bad Titans defense.

Numbers to Know
  • 11 -- Targets for T.Y. Hilton in Week 13. He hadn't seen more than six in a game since Week 5.
  • 11.4 -- aDOT for Keke Coutee, a huge leap from his 2018 and 2019 opportunity.
  • 28% -- Target share for Brandon Aiyuk in his past four games.
  • 1,385 -- Justin Jefferson is on pace to break the rookie record with 1,385 receiving yards.
  • 40 -- Marvin Jones has seen 40 targets in the Lions' past four games. He's a must-start receiver as long as Kenny Golladay is out.
  • 15.7 -- Corey Davis ranks 17th among receivers at 15.7 PPR Fantasy points per game.
  • 84 -- JuJu Smith-Schuster has 84 yards in his past three games combined.

Deshaun Watson will pepper Coutee and Brandin Cooks with targets, and Coutee looks up to the task. He's a No. 3 receiver in all formats in Week 14, and that may be underselling it.

Patrick continues to outperform Jerry Jeudy, with the latter barely seeing any action in Week 13. He's the No. 1 receiver and Broncos are underdogs again, so we should expect another pass-heavy game script from Drew Lock and company.

You can't start Ruggs, but I do have some hope his game-winning catch against the Jets was a precursor for a strong Fantasy finish.

Jones is severely underpriced as long as Golladay remains out. If we get an indication Golladay may play, I'll update later in the week.

Cooks has disappointed more often than not when he's been the chalk, but he has a pretty strong record the following week. It should be a pass-heavy script for the Texans, and Cooks should be a borderline No.. 1 receiver.
