Nov. 29 (UPI) -- Tampa Bay Buccaneers star Mike Evans is my top fantasy football wide receiver for Week 13.

Evans is followed by Cincinnati Bengals' A.J. Green, Pittsburgh Steelers' Antonio Brown, New England Patriots' Brandin Cooks and Atlanta Falcons star Julio Jones in my top five for the week.

But not everyone owns a stud.

Here are my Top 50 options at the position this week.

TOP 50 WEEK 13 RANKINGS BELOW

TOP SHELF

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans is a great start most weeks, but in Week 13 he faces a Green Bay Packers defense allowing the third-most fantasy points per game, fourth-most receiving yards and fourth-most touchdowns to opposing wide receivers. Evans hasn't scored since Week 7, but has a good chance here against this weak secondary.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams is my No. 17 play this week, putting him in the WR2 category. While he has experienced a slight decrease in production, Adams hasn't fallen off quite as much as Jordy Nelson has following the injury to Aaron Rodgers. In fact, Adams is heating up. He has a touchdown or 100 receiving yards in three consecutive games. He also has at least five catches in six of his last seven appearances. Adams is another good start in Week 13 against a Tampa Bay Buccaneers secondary allowing the most fantasy points per game, catches, receiving yards and third-most receiving scores to opposing wide receivers.

SNEAKY PLAYS

Robby Anderson is another wide receiver heating up at the right time. The New York Jets speedster comes in as my No. 18 option for Week 13. He is facing a Kansas City Chiefs unit allowing the second-most fantasy points per game, most touchdowns and fifth-most receiving yards to opposing wide receivers. Anderson has produced like a WR1 recently, cashing in for scores in five consecutive games. Last week he torched the Carolina Panthers for 146 yards and two scores on six catches. Look for WR2 production in Week 13 from Anderson.

Washington Redskins veteran Jamison Crowder is my No. 20 option for Week 13. Crowder faces a Los Angeles Rams unit that has been respectable against the pass this season, but he remains a borderline WR2 even in the tough matchup. He has at least 72 receiving yards or a score in four consecutive games and had his best game of the season in Week 12 against the New York Giants, posting 141 yards and a score on seven catches. Start Crowder as Kirk Cousins' most trusted option.

LONGSHOTS

Marvin Jones is having a huge year for the Detroit Lions. He should also not be taken out of your fantasy football lineup. Jones has five touchdowns in his last four games, after going off for 109 yards and two scores in Week 12 against a tough Minnesota Vikings secondary. This week he is my No. 21 option at wide receiver, with a matchup against the Baltimore Ravens. This is another tough matchup, but Jones is just too hot to bench at the moment. He is a low-end WR2 for me for the rest of the season.

Los Angeles Rams wide out Sammy Watkins is a borderline WR2 for me this week against the Arizona Cardinals. Watkins has three scores in his last four games and looks to be building up his relationship with quarterback Jared Goff. The Cardinals are allowing the ninth-most fantasy points per game, fifth-most touchdowns and seventh-most receiving yards to opposing wide receivers. Watkins is my No. 23 option this week.
