Let’s start with a little praise for the cream of the fantasy receiving crop, as shared by Field Yates:
Most catches without a drop (charted by @ESPNStatsInfo) this season:
1. Michael Thomas: 86
2. Chris Godwin: 60
3. Austin Ekeler: 57
4. Austin Hooper: 56
5. Allen Robinson: 53
6. Larry Fitzgerald: 50
T-7. Jamison Crowder: 48
T-7. Christian McCaffrey: 48

Michael Thomas was already a locked-and-loaded WR1 for this weekend’s encounter with Tampa Bay – and this state should only serve to galvanize that sentiment.
Derek Brown is next, with a compelling reason for T.J. Hockenson owners to bench whoever they were planning to play in his place:
DAL vs TE
28th in DVOA vs TE
Vs. TE DAL has Allowed:
6th Most Tgs (79)
5th Most Rec (58)
4th Most Td (5)
3rd Most DK ppg (16.6) 😍
Wk 11 vs. TJ Hockenson 😉

Hockenson has been as hit-or-miss as fantasy options get (beware rookie tight ends, as always), but this matchup seems too good to be true. He’ll could be a sneaky good value play in daily fantasy lineups this weekend.
Regular contributor Heath Cummings brings up some interesting names with regard to potential positive touchdown regression:
Most targets without a receiving touchdown
71- Robert Woods
57- Davante Adams, Mike Williams
51 – Leonard Fournette
48 – Dalvin Cook

Somebody get Robert Woods a touchdown! Owners of these five players aren’t guaranteed a barrage of TDs down the stretch, but they all deserve better, and could make for intriguing buy-low candidates with fantasy trade deadlines looming.
The final tweet of our lead-in section comes courtesy Nic Romero, who suggests that Brian Hill trumpeters might want to pump the brakes a little:
Cringe-worthy: reading the words league-winner and Brian Hill in the same sentence. Falcons are dead last in rush att/g, 4th worst rush yds/g, 8th worst yards per rush att.
— Nic Romero (@NicRomeroFF) November 13, 2019
Can Hill succeed where Devonta Freeman and Ito Smith largely failed? It remains to be seen – but with Hill expected to be quite a chalky play in DFS this weekend, savvy players might want to consider fading him altogether, particularly in large-field tournaments.
Here are the best of the rest from #FantasyFootball Twitter this week:
Odell Beckham Jr- 70.2 rec YPG, 1 rec TD, 12.56 fantasy PPG
Jarvis Landry- 72.4 rec YPG, 2 rec TD, 13.69 fantasy PPG #Browns

David Johnson has forced 9 missed tackles on 113 touches this year (ranks 47th-of-47 RBs in MT per touch).
Kenyan Drake has forced 8 missed tackles on his 35 touches in Arizona (8th-best).

Michael Thomas' last 3 games vs. Tampa Bay:
• 11 rec.-13 targets, 182 yards, 2 TDs
• 11-13, 98 yards, 0 TDs
• 16-17, 180 yards, 1 TD
Avg. in that span: 12 receptions, 14 targets, 153 yards, 1 TD https://t.co/X4Cmu2SGNS

Fun fact: Sam Darnold has a higher comp% (49.4%), adjusted comp% (64.6%) and passer rating (49.6) than Tom Brady (33.7%, 55.7%, 47.9) when both are under pressure this season.
P.S. both are very bad.
Also P.S. Darnold should be getting rid of the ball quicker @nyjets
