As Hilton went into his bye week, here are some receivers who had outscored him through six weeks: Gabriel Davis, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Anthony Miller, and Nelson Agholor. Not great. He did finally post six catches for 69 yards in Week 5, but then fell back into his old ways in Week 6 when he caught just one ball for 11 yards. Something that's becoming a bigger issue is his lack of targets, as he's topped five targets just once over the last five games. It surely doesn't hurt that 64.2 percent of targets against the Lions go to wide receivers, which ranks as the second-highest mark in the league. Among the cornerbacks who've played at least 100 snaps in coverage, Jeff Okudah has allowed 2.35 yards per snap, which ranks as the second-highest mark in football. I mentioned in Rivers' notes that this is the definition of an average matchup, and the same goes for Hilton. There have been 11 wide receivers who've posted 11.4 or more PPR points against them, which put the odds in Hilton's favor to get into WR4 territory this week.
