Fantasy Football Player Notes

2019 PPR Rest of Season Rankings
Deshaun Watson Note

It's been a bit of a mixed bag this year for Watson, who has had some incredibly strong games mixed in with some major duds. Much of his success depends on Will Fuller's health, as he's generally been able to produce better fantasy numbers throughout his career with Fuller on the field. With the Bucs on tap in Week 16 and a division title in his sights, Watson should be a guaranteed starter in all fantasy leagues and a fine DFS play.

Will Fuller Note

Fuller injured his hamstring against the Colts and is set to miss several weeks. He provided one enormous game but otherwise, was incredibly hit or miss. While he should come back in time for the fantasy playoffs, the initial estimates suggest that the injury is a multiple-week one. Make other arrangements if you own Fuller.

David Johnson Note

Johnson will almost certainly miss Week 9 with his ankle injury, and the trade for Kenyan Drake puts his long-term availability in question. For now, there's not much you can do as a Johnson owner. You can't sell him low unless someone is wildly optimistic on his injury concerns. When healthy, he should continue to dominate the touches, even with Kenyan Drake in fold.

Brandin Cooks Note

Some may be thinking they're getting a steal by acquiring Cooks for next to nothing, but he's closer to a drop than he is to a must-start over the last two weeks. He'll play the Cowboys and 49ers, two zone-heavy schemes that don't allow big plays to receivers very often.

Duke Johnson Note

With Lamar Miller out for the season, Duke is the favorite to lead this team in touches. They brought in Carlos Hyde via trade and while you may think he is a lock to be the early-down back, Duke can handle a three-down workload as we saw in college when he touched the ball 22 times per game. He comes with both risk and upside, making him a worthwhile mid-round pick.

Randall Cobb Note

Cobb had a great run for the Cowboys, but it seems to be fizzling out now. Add in a rough matchup this week against the Rams and Cobb will very likely be ranked as just a WR5 or WR6, making him unownable this week.

Kenny Stills Note

Stills did play the vast majority of snaps with Will Fuller out, but he managed just 2 targets for 8 yards once again. With Fuller likely back this week, Stills should remain just an afterthought.

Keke Coutee Note

Although Kenny Stills out-snapped Coutee by quite a bit, it was Coutee who saw most of the targets that would have belonged to Will Fuller if he were active. Even so, Fuller should be back this week so Coutee will remain on waivers.

Darren Fells Note

Fells just keeps getting the job done and as a result, he should now be considered a top 15 rest of season tight end. With that said, this week he doesn't make for a great start as he draws the Jags defense.

Houston Texans Note

Jordan Akins Note

Akins did get in the end zone twice Sunday, but he only has 10 targets through three weeks so it was more than likely a fluke than something we can expect to see again.
