The Chiefs are 11th against fantasy receivers, but Brown has proven me wrong the last two years. I never thought he would be an elite fantasy receiver, but he is not only a great fantasy player. He's one of the top receivers in the NFL.
The Bengals are 2nd against fantasy receivers, but I would not bet against Thomas any week. QB Peyton Manning is going to start putting up numbers again and when he does, Thomas is going to explode.
