He falls under that category of wide receivers who never feel great to play, though he's delivered 12.6 or more PPR points in three of his last five games. Between DeSean Jackson, Zach Ertz, and Dallas Goedert being out of the lineup and Alshon Jeffery maybe not being a real person at this point, Ward should be in line for five-plus targets in this matchup against the Cowboys, a team that's allowed 2.18 PPR points per target. Tyler Lockett, Russell Gage, and Jarvis Landry all finished as top-24 options against them, though it's worth noting that each of them did see six-plus targets. Even Golden Tate was able to collect four catches for 42 yards against them. Ward is someone you can play as a WR5 in a pinch, especially in PPR formats.
