Fantasy Football Player Notes

2019 Rest of Season Rankings
DeAndre Hopkins Note
DeAndre Hopkins photo 1. DeAndre Hopkins ARI (at LAR)
As of now, Hopkins is the consensus #1 receiver off the board. You certainly can't argue with his talent nor his recent production but there is reason to be concerned about his shoulder, however, as he started the preseason the PUP. Perhaps more concerning is the fact that both Will Fuller and Keke Coutee will both be healthy so his league-high target share may take a hit. He is still elite, but shouldn't exactly be a slam dunk at pick 6.

Michael Thomas Note
Michael Thomas photo 2. Michael Thomas NO (at CAR)
No one was more efficient with the targets they saw than Thomas last season. In fact, no one in NFL history has been that efficient. There is room for more, of course, if New Orleans decides to pepper him with targets, but they also don't throw much so that might just be wishful thinking.
48 weeks ago
Tyreek Hill Note
Tyreek Hill photo 3. Tyreek Hill KC (vs . LAC)
Hill has looked just fine since returning despite playing largely with Matt Moore. He's a threat to hit a home run on any given play, so should remain a top-five receiver if Patrick Mahomes returns shortly as he is expected to.
40 weeks ago
Davante Adams Note
Davante Adams photo 4. Davante Adams GB (at DET)
Adams continues to suffer from turf toe and likely won't return until November. With the Packers winning despite his absence, there is no reason for the Packers to rush him back. Be patient as an Adams owner, and hope for full health before he returns.
41 weeks ago
Julio Jones Note
Julio Jones photo 5. Julio Jones ATL (at TB)
You can say DeAndre Hopkins is the world's most talented receiver and even that his QB is a better passer than Matt Ryan, but the fact of the matter is that Hopkins has never once had as many receiving yards as Julio has averaged over the last five seasons. We know exactly who Jones is and it's a top fantasy performer every year. If they ever start throwing him the ball in the Red Zone, look out for a historic season.
48 weeks ago
Amari Cooper Note
Amari Cooper photo 6. Amari Cooper DAL (vs . WAS)
Cooper has put up some historical numbers to start his career despite playing in an awful offense that refused to throw him the ball. It was no wonder he exploded with a new offense and better quarterback despite learning the playbook on the fly. The ceiling is enormous in his first full season with Dallas but there is also quite a bit of unknown too, particularly his plantar fasciitis.
48 weeks ago
Julian Edelman Note
Julian Edelman photo 7. Julian Edelman NE (vs . MIA)
Those expecting Edelman to outperform his ADP might be in for a surprise as he has never finished higher than WR19 in fantasy. Part of this has to do with his inability to stay on the field and at 33 years old, reversing that tendency may prove a difficult task. He comes with reliability while healthy but perhaps with a price tag too steep.
48 weeks ago
D.J. Moore Note
D.J. Moore photo 8. D.J. Moore CAR (vs . NO)
Moore is the de facto number one receiver in Carolina and has upside to blossom into a high-end WR2 if everything goes right this year. Much of it will depend on whether or not Cam Newton's shoulder truly is healthy.
48 weeks ago
Keenan Allen Note
Keenan Allen photo 9. Keenan Allen LAC (at KC)
After a hot start, Allen has fallen off dramatically, though he has seen double digit targets in each of the last two games (Weeks 7 and 8). The Chargers offense, playing with a decimated offensive line, simply looks out of sync, and Allen himself isn't blameless. In the end, given his pedigree and the consistency of the targets, he still makes no worse than a solid WR2 in half- and full-PPR leagues.
40 weeks ago
Cooper Kupp Note
Cooper Kupp photo 10. Cooper Kupp LAR (vs . ARI)
Kupp isn't far removed from a torn ACL, but all reports out of camp are that he is even better than ever. Whether or not that is true is anyone's guess, but the fact of the matter is that he has huge upside if entirely healthy. He was the WR #2 prior to his injury.
48 weeks ago
Stefon Diggs Note
Stefon Diggs photo 11. Stefon Diggs BUF (vs . NYJ)
I'd sell Stefon Diggs for Odell Beckham or Marlon Mack right now. Yes, he has been great lately but what in the world did you expect versus the Philly, Detroit and Washington? Those are three of the easiest matchups in the league and Thielen has been banged up. With his upcoming schedule, I'm expecting the production to return to the low-end WR2 range before long.
40 weeks ago
Chris Godwin Note
Chris Godwin photo 12. Chris Godwin TB (vs . ATL)
Chris Godwin has been magical this season as one of the top breakouts in fantasy football. He isn't as consistent week to week as someone like Michael Thomas, but you can guarantee that if drafts were today, he'd be gone by the end of the 2nd round. He is a clear-cut WR1 every week for the rest of the season.
36 weeks ago
Allen Robinson Note
Allen Robinson photo 13. Allen Robinson CHI (at MIN)
Robinson may have disappointed last year but let's remember that he was coming into a new offense with limited pre-season work due to his significant injury. He missed some time but still led the team in targets and may bounceback to his former WR1 self with a fully healthy season in this up-and-coming offense.
48 weeks ago
Tyler Lockett Note
Tyler Lockett photo 14. Tyler Lockett SEA (vs . SF)
Lockett had just 70 targets last year and before Baldwin came back, he was the secondary target behind Brandon Marshall. Lockett isn't primary weapon, nor will he likely become one. He is still a WR3, but is being vastly overdrafted with over optimistic expectations about his transition to an entirely different type of receiver.
48 weeks ago
Courtland Sutton Note
Courtland Sutton photo 15. Courtland Sutton DEN (vs . LV)
Sutton has had a very solid year overall, but the excitement after the Emmanuel Sanders trades now looks unwarranted. His first game without Sanders was his typical effort, and now Joe Flacco may be done for the season. Sutton sees the targets and is essentially the only game in town, so he's a surefire starter. But there's less optimism with him now than there had been immediately after the Sanders trade.
40 weeks ago
Odell Beckham Jr. Note
Odell Beckham Jr. photo 16. Odell Beckham Jr. CLE (at CIN)
Beckham has just two 100-yard games so far this season, and a mere 34 receptions through five games. It's not the easiest schedule for the Browns, and with the offense struggling to get going, it's looking more and more likely that Beckham will be one of the bigger busts of the season. Still, he has as much play-making ability as any receiver in the league, so be wary of selling too low.
40 weeks ago
Kenny Golladay Note
Kenny Golladay photo 17. Kenny Golladay DET (vs . GB)
Golladay did have a mini breakout last season but it came while Marvin Jones was shelved and Golden Tate was playing in Philly. Now that he isn't the only competent receiver on the depth chart, his volume share should plummet. He is still a WR2, but be careful with the extent of your expectations.
48 weeks ago
Robert Woods Note
Robert Woods photo 18. Robert Woods LAR (vs . ARI)
Woods ends a six-man third-tier of fantasy receivers before a huge drop-off to the fourth tier. It might not feel as sexy as some other picks in the fourth or fifth round, but there is something to be said for his safety week to week and year-long in this Rams' machine of an offense.
48 weeks ago
John Brown Note
John Brown photo 19. John Brown BUF (vs . NYJ)
Brown is an extraordinarily talented rookie but hasn't been unleashed because of snaps and Marcus Mariota. Suddenly, both problems are cleared up so if Tannehill can continue to play well, we may have a breakout on our hands.
41 weeks ago
Jarvis Landry Note
Jarvis Landry photo 20. Jarvis Landry CLE (at CIN)
Landry saw 149 targets last year and did next to nothing with them. Now that Odell Beckham is in town, Landry should become nothing more than a weekly flex play.
48 weeks ago
Michael Gallup Note
Michael Gallup photo 21. Michael Gallup DAL (vs . WAS)
Gallup started the season hot before missing two games with a meniscus issue, but he came back strong against the Packers in Week 5 with seven catches for 113 yards and a touchdown. There's little reason to doubt Gallup when healthy at this point - Kellen Moore's offense and Dak Prescott's solid play makes him an excellent option at receiver for every fantasy team, and the ride should continue to keep going.
43 weeks ago
DeVante Parker Note
DeVante Parker photo 22. DeVante Parker MIA (at NE)
Preston Williams had a great game on Sunday but is now undergoing an MRI which could leave even more targets for Parker, who believe it or not, has been a top 20 fantasy wideout over the past 6 weeks, outscoring Robert Woods, Tyler Boyd and JuJu Smith-Schuster in that time. Add a very favorable playoff schedule and he is the top wide receiver pickup of the week.
39 weeks ago
Adam Thielen Note
Adam Thielen photo 23. Adam Thielen MIN (vs . CHI)
Thielen aggravated his hamstring injury early against the Chiefs, and will almost certainly miss Week 10 against the Cowboys. With a bye in Week 12, the Vikings could look to play it safe and hold Thielen out for several weeks. Although that would hurt his fantasy owners, it would obviously be preferable to Thielen trying to return while hobbled.
39 weeks ago
Christian Kirk Note
Christian Kirk photo 24. Christian Kirk ARI (at LAR)
Kirk is likely to start every game in Kingsbury's new quick-paced offense that may afford the Cardinals 75 snaps per game. Assuming Murray is even a moderately competent passer, that could make Kirk a WR3 or even WR2 if everything clicks.
48 weeks ago
D.J. Chark Note
D.J. Chark photo 25. D.J. Chark JAC (vs . IND)
Perhaps no player's stock has risen more dramatically this season than Chark's, who has not only become Gardner Minshew's favorite target, but has become one of the most reliable starters in fantasy. He's scored five touchdowns through his first five games and has 27 catches on 37 targets. There's little reason to expect things to slow down going forward, so buy him as a solid borderline WR2.
43 weeks ago
D.K. Metcalf Note
D.K. Metcalf photo 26. D.K. Metcalf SEA (vs . SF)
Metcalf's targets and receptions have dipped significantly since his first two games, but he remains a red zone threat, as he showed against the Rams. He'll never pile on huge yards, however, so he's more of a touchdown or bust Flex at this stage in his young career.
43 weeks ago
Mike Williams Note
Mike Williams photo 27. Mike Williams LAC (at KC)
Williams was insanely efficient despite being the 4th target. With Tyrell Williams gone and the threat of Melvin Gordon holding out, Williams could surge forward, perhaps all the way into WR1 territory. There is some risk here, but the upside is spectacular.
48 weeks ago
Tyler Boyd Note
Tyler Boyd photo 28. Tyler Boyd CIN (vs . CLE)
Boyd just signed a four-year extension with the Bengals which means Zac Taylor must have big plans for him. A.J. Green is still the number one and will be back within a handful of weeks and Andy Dalton can only create so many fantasy points, but Boyd is a strong bet to finish as a WR3.
48 weeks ago
Emmanuel Sanders Note
Emmanuel Sanders photo 29. Emmanuel Sanders NO (at CAR)
Sanders has been traded to the 49ers, and immediately becomes the top receiving option on the team. The 49ers have attempted the second-fewest passes in the league, and it will likely take time for Sanders to learn the offense. Still, given his talent and the upgrade in offenses from the Broncos to the 49ers, the move only helps Sanders' value.
41 weeks ago
Curtis Samuel Note
Curtis Samuel photo 30. Curtis Samuel CAR (vs . NO)
Samuel has a ton of talent, but the Panthers with Kyle Allen have morphed into more of a game-managing type of offense. Rarely are there big shots, as Carolina looks to control the clock and win with their defense. Samuel has seen at least six targets in each game since Week 1, but for now, it's hard to trust him in a fantasy lineup.
43 weeks ago
T.Y. Hilton Note
T.Y. Hilton photo 31. T.Y. Hilton IND (at JAC)
It's tempting to drop Hilton after he suggested he "may not" play again this season, but knowing there's hope, you should hang onto him. This is the time of year where your bench should be filled with upside guys that you'll likely never use, and Hilton fits that description.
34 weeks ago
JuJu Smith-Schuster Note
JuJu Smith-Schuster photo 32. JuJu Smith-Schuster PIT (at BAL)
There is no doubt about it that JuJu was the best slot receiver in football last year. Part of that, of course, had to do with Antonio Brown drawing loads of attention, and it remains to a question how he will perform outside versus stronger cornerback matchups. The target share is expected to improve but that assumes Big Ben again throws a league-high 675 passes which seems unlikely.
48 weeks ago
Sterling Shepard Note
Sterling Shepard photo 33. Sterling Shepard NYG (vs . PHI)
Shepard is back in the concussion protocol and is likely to miss the Giants' game in Week 6 against the Patriots. Even when he's healthy, the fact that he ran so many routes on the perimeter instead of out of the slot with the return of Golden Tate certainly puts a damper on his ROS outlook.
43 weeks ago
Will Fuller Note
Will Fuller photo 34. Will Fuller HOU (vs . TEN)
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.
41 weeks ago
Robby Anderson Note
Robby Anderson photo 35. Robby Anderson CAR (vs . NO)
Anderson has let fantasy owners down in several great matchups lately, but if you want to chase a home run, he's got three more great matchups in a row coming up including this week at home against Oakland.
37 weeks ago
Terry McLaurin Note
Terry McLaurin photo 36. Terry McLaurin WAS (at DAL)
McLaurin has been the lone bright spot this season for the Redskins, and even his 3-51 line against the Patriots was a positive, with Colt McCoy as his quarterback and a ton of defensive focus on him. It's hard to be even remotely excited about anyone in Washington, but McLaurin remains a player who you can start at wide receiver most weeks, particularly in deeper formats.
43 weeks ago
Jamison Crowder Note
Jamison Crowder photo 37. Jamison Crowder NYJ (at BUF)
You won't want to start Crowder this week against the Patriots, but he can be a WR4 after that considering Sam Darnold is back and in their two games together, Crowder has 26 targets.
42 weeks ago
Golden Tate Note
Golden Tate photo 38. Golden Tate NYG (vs . PHI)
Tate has 90+ receptions in four the last 5 seasons and was on pace to do it again last year before the trade. He did that with Marvin Jones and Kenny Golladay on the roster so don't be surprised when he is a top 30 rest of season wideout with Daniel Jones now under center in New York.
44 weeks ago
Deebo Samuel Note
Deebo Samuel photo 39. Deebo Samuel SF (at SEA)
Samuel has slowed down enough over the past month that we can't start him in any matchup for now, but he still has WR3 upside if he starts seeing consistent snaps and targets for San Francisco.
39 weeks ago
A.J. Brown Note
A.J. Brown photo 40. A.J. Brown TEN (at HOU)
It's about time the Titans start using their best pass-catcher. Brown has been extraordinarily efficient all season and seems to break the first tackle every time he touches the ball. Sometimes, as we saw in Week 14, that leads to a long touchdown reception. He does have some risk from week to week, but considering his great home matchup against the Texans, it is more likely that fantasy owners get a boom week from Brown.
34 weeks ago
Marquise Brown Note
Marquise Brown photo 41. Marquise Brown BAL (vs . PIT)
Brown has missed several weeks with an ankle injury, but is hopeful to return against the Patriots. When he does, he should immediately return as a WR3 with upside, though he's likely to see plenty of boom or bust weeks with Lamar Jackson's inconsistent throwing.
40 weeks ago
Sammy Watkins Note
Sammy Watkins photo 42. Sammy Watkins KC (vs . LAC)
Watkins added a hamstring injury to his shoulder woes in Week 5 against the Colts, and appears likely to miss at least a little time. Outside of Week 1, when few people were starting him, Watkins had been a major disappointment despite the absence of Tyreek Hill. Now with injury concerns of his own, Watkins is still a rosterable option, but likely not one that you'll be able to or want to start anytime soon.
43 weeks ago
Brandin Cooks Note
Brandin Cooks photo 43. Brandin Cooks HOU (vs . TEN)
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.
34 weeks ago
James Washington Note
James Washington photo 44. James Washington PIT (at BAL)
If Juju Smith-Schuster comes back, Washington probably wouldn't be startable even in the flex, but Washington should be worth picking up just in case Juju misses another game. He'd be ranked among the top 40 wideouts with a great matchup versus Arizona.
35 weeks ago
Dede Westbrook Note
Dede Westbrook photo 45. Dede Westbrook JAC (vs . IND)
Westbrook was the number one receiver for Bortles last year in Jacksonville and appears to be the favorite for that role again, but with a major offensive line upgrade and perhaps a QB upgrade in Foles too. With that said, his upside is limited in this offense.
48 weeks ago
Tyrell Williams Note
Tyrell Williams photo 46. Tyrell Williams LV (at DEN)
Williams continues to deal with plantar fasciitis, but is practicing heading into Week 8 and may return to the field. When healthy, he's a viable WR3 play, though his injury seems likely to linger, pushing his ceiling down a bit.
41 weeks ago
Darius Slayton Note
Darius Slayton photo 47. Darius Slayton NYG (vs . PHI)
Slayton has been exceptional when he sees targets, and boy did he see them in Week 10 before the Giants' bye, but now Sterling Shepard is expected to return plus they've got two rough matchups so Slayton can be comfortably passed up unless you want an upside stash.
37 weeks ago
Mohamed Sanu Note
Mohamed Sanu photo 48. Mohamed Sanu NE (vs . MIA)
Sanu was having a decent, though inconsistent, season with the Falcons, but now moves to the Patriots, who reportedly have coveted him for some time. It should take him some time to get up to speed but with Josh Gordon moving to IR, there are plenty of targets available. Sanu may start slow, but he should offer WR3 value once he gets going.
41 weeks ago
Zach Pascal Note
Zach Pascal photo 49. Zach Pascal IND (at JAC)
Unless T.Y. Hilton ends up active, Pascal is a near-lock to lead this team in targets. He has 19 of them since Eric Ebron went out for the season two weeks ago. In those games, we are talking about 18 and 20 PPR points. Granted, he doesn't draw the Bucs again this week, but a matchup versus New Orleans isn't too shabby either. With 7+ targets a virtual guarantee, he'll again be ranked as a top 36 wideout.
34 weeks ago
Anthony Miller Note
Anthony Miller photo 50. Anthony Miller CHI (at MIN)
Some are going another wideout here like Dionte Johnson, who is coming off a big game or Allen Hurns, who has a great matchup, but Miller is still my #3 wideout streamer despite his matchup in Green Bay. We are talking about someone with 37 targets and 313 receiving yards over the past four weeks. He has double-digit fantasy points in each of those games too. As long as he keeps rolling, I'll be playing Miller as a strong flex option.
34 weeks ago
Larry Fitzgerald Note
Larry Fitzgerald photo 51. Larry Fitzgerald ARI (at LAR)
Fitzgerald has fallen off a bit since his incredibly hot start, but he's yet to have a game with fewer than five receptions. He's not the Fitzgerald of old, that much is clear, but especially in half or full-PPR leagues, he's an every-week starter without question, especially with some easier matchups on tap.
43 weeks ago
Randall Cobb Note
Randall Cobb photo 52. Randall Cobb HOU (vs . TEN)
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.
34 weeks ago
Kenny Stills Note
Kenny Stills photo 53. Kenny Stills HOU (vs . TEN)
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.
34 weeks ago
Diontae Johnson Note
Diontae Johnson photo 54. Diontae Johnson PIT (at BAL)
Johnson is coming off a big game, but you can't rely on him while Hodges is under center, especially considering they have a bad matchup against the Bills this week and Juju may be coming back.
34 weeks ago
Corey Davis Note
Corey Davis photo 55. Corey Davis TEN (at HOU)
You may have had your heart broken by Corey Davis a time or two, but that doesn't mean you can't play him in your fantasy playoffs with cake matchups against Oakland and Houston coming up. If you have the roster space, stash him now for two starts then.
37 weeks ago
Josh Gordon Note
Josh Gordon photo 56. Josh Gordon FA (BYE)
Gordon has been placed on injured reserve and the word is that the Patriots will release him once he is healthy. There's a minor chance that he latches on with another team and provides small value this season, but there's no reason to waste a roster spot on him.
41 weeks ago
Demaryius Thomas Note
Demaryius Thomas photo 57. Demaryius Thomas FA (BYE)
Thomas has led the Jets in targets since joining the starting lineup and hasn't played half bad either. This week they draw an easy matchup against the Raiders and he will be startable the following two contests as well.
37 weeks ago
Cole Beasley Note
Cole Beasley photo 58. Cole Beasley BUF (vs . NYJ)
Beasley has a bad matchup in Pittsburgh, but let's not pretend he has had an easy going in any of the last three weeks either, yet he has 20, 23 and 15 fantasy points in those contests. If you need a safe wideout, Beasley is as reliable as you'll find on waivers.
34 weeks ago
Chris Conley Note
Chris Conley photo 59. Chris Conley JAC (vs . IND)
With D.J. Chark expected to be out in Week 15, Conley should be a strong play against a terrible Raiders defense. After all, the Jags will have a useful game script, and Conley has been seeing plenty of targets lately.
34 weeks ago
Mecole Hardman Note
Mecole Hardman photo 60. Mecole Hardman KC (vs . LAC)
Hardman can't be used this week because of bye, nor is he trustworthy when he returns because of limited snaps and targets, but if the Chiefs plug him into the lineup finally, we could be looking at a potential league-winner so he warrants a stash if you have the roster space.
37 weeks ago
Allen Lazard Note
Allen Lazard photo 61. Allen Lazard GB (at DET)
Lazard has had a few big games and is functioning as the #2 for Aaron Rodgers, but he doesn't see enough targets to warrant starting in a terrible matchup against the Bears this week.
34 weeks ago
N'Keal Harry Note
N'Keal Harry photo 62. N'Keal Harry NE (vs . MIA)
The Patriots showed us in Week 11 that Harry has surpassed Jakobi Meyers as the #4 receiver but now Phillip Dorsett is banged up which means Harry should get his first start this week in Dallas. His potential makes him worth taking a flier on.
37 weeks ago
Phillip Dorsett Note
Phillip Dorsett photo 63. Phillip Dorsett SEA (vs . SF)
With Mohammed Sanu now in town and the Patriots bye coming up, you may be tempted to forget about Dorsett, but he still plays virtually every snap for a great offense that throws a ton and has a killer upcoming schedule so keep him in mind.
39 weeks ago
Danny Amendola Note
Danny Amendola photo 64. Danny Amendola DET (vs . GB)
If you need a streamer for this week, Amendola has been rolling with back to back games of 8 receptions and 95+ yards. Now that Kerryon Johnson is out and the Lions run into a pass-funnel Raiders defense, you can expect Stafford's third consecutive 300+ yard performance. If that happens, you'll be glad to have started Amendola.
40 weeks ago
Allen Hurns Note
Allen Hurns photo 65. Allen Hurns MIA (at NE)
If Devante Parker is ruled out for Week 15, Hurns will make for a tremendous stash. He is already seeing consistent targets every week, but with Parker out, we might be looking at double-digit versus a weak Giants' secondary which would make Hurns startable.
34 weeks ago
Nelson Agholor Note
Nelson Agholor photo 66. Nelson Agholor LV (at DEN)
With Alshon back and now Dallas Goedert playing 70% of the snaps, Agholor's role has diminished enough that we can't justify using him outside of perfect matchups. He doesn't have one this week in Dallas so he is better off left on waivers for now.
42 weeks ago
Auden Tate Note
Auden Tate photo 67. Auden Tate CIN (vs . CLE)
Although Tate has seen consistent targets, that may change this week with John Ross likely coming back. There is, of course, a chance that Tate has a big game, but he isn't safe enough to start. If you add him, do it as a stash for future weeks.
35 weeks ago
Ted Ginn Note
Ted Ginn photo 68. Ted Ginn CHI (at MIN)
Ginn is by no means an exciting pick, but he is the starting receiver opposite of Michael Thomas in a high-powered offense so he offers some fantasy value as a WR6.
48 weeks ago
Taylor Gabriel Note
Taylor Gabriel photo 69. Taylor Gabriel FA (BYE)
It is clear that Mitch Trubisky loves Taylor Gabriel, as evidenced by his production last year and Week 11's 14 targets. This week, Gabriel makes for a sneaky streamer play as he has the best matchup on the field versus a horrendous Giants' secondary.
37 weeks ago
Josh Reynolds Note
Josh Reynolds photo 70. Josh Reynolds LAR (vs . ARI)
Reynolds may be filling in for Brandin Cooks while he is out, and that may end up being the remainder of the season, but we are talking about the number four option at best in Jared Goff's offense. Add in a bad rest of season schedule and we should be leaving Reynolds on waivers.
37 weeks ago
Jakobi Meyers Note
Jakobi Meyers photo 71. Jakobi Meyers NE (vs . MIA)
Meyers appears to have passed up N'Keal Harry as the Patriots WR #3 but there is still some uncertainty moving forward and the next three matchups are all tough enough that I can't imagine Meyers being useful at any point for the rest of the season.
35 weeks ago
Marquez Valdes-Scantling Note
Marquez Valdes-Scantling photo 72. Marquez Valdes-Scantling GB (at DET)
With Allison starting in the slot, that means MVS will likely see the majority of two 2-WR set snaps on the outside opposite of Adams. He is an exceptional athlete who could take off with consistent targets from one of the all-time great QBs.
48 weeks ago
Demarcus Robinson Note
Demarcus Robinson photo 73. Demarcus Robinson KC (vs . LAC)
Tyreek Hill will eventually come back which will leave Robinson and Hardman to compete for snaps so there will be few weeks where it is safe to start him. With that said, he should pile up enough points to finish the year as a top 50 wide receiver.
45 weeks ago
Alex Erickson Note
Alex Erickson photo 74. Alex Erickson CIN (vs . CLE)
Erickson has been excellent in back to back weeks and while the upcoming schedule after the Bengals bye looks promising, Erickson will almost definitely be taking a seat on the bench since A.J. Green is expected to finally return.
40 weeks ago
Breshad Perriman Note
Breshad Perriman photo 75. Breshad Perriman NYJ (at BUF)
Mike Evans is expected to miss Week 15 and while Justin Waston had more targets in his Evans' place, Perriman is the more skilled receiver and has the upside to break a big play versus Detroit this week.
34 weeks ago
Tre'Quan Smith Note
Tre'Quan Smith photo 76. Tre'Quan Smith NO (at CAR)
Ted Ginn may still be in the way, but if Tre'Quan surpasses him, the number two receiver in New Orleans would certainly return more value than the occasional strong performance mixed into a lot of duds like Smith gave us last year.
48 weeks ago
Adam Humphries Note
Adam Humphries photo 77. Adam Humphries TEN (at HOU)
Humphries hasn't done anything exciting and it is hard to imagine much happening with this offense, but we do have the unknown here with Ryan Tannehill potentially starting and it is worth noting that in a small sample, he connected for four completions with Humphries after taking over.
42 weeks ago
Geronimo Allison Note
Geronimo Allison photo 78. Geronimo Allison DET (vs . GB)
Allison didn't get in on the party Sunday but with no timeline for Davante Adams' return, Allison ought to be owned and started until he comes back, especially this week at Kansas City.
41 weeks ago
Russell Gage Note
Russell Gage photo 79. Russell Gage ATL (at TB)
Now that Calvin Ridley has been ruled out for the season with an abdominal injury, Gage should start to see even more targets. With that said, you can't start him this week in the matchup against the 49ers.
34 weeks ago
Keke Coutee Note
Keke Coutee photo 80. Keke Coutee HOU (vs . TEN)
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.
34 weeks ago
John Ross Note
John Ross photo 81. John Ross CIN (vs . CLE)
Ross was excellent over the first two weeks for Cincy then saw a difficult Week 3 matchup. With how much Zac Taylor's offense has been passing the ball, it should be no surprise that Ross continues to perform as a WR4 even with A.J. Green coming back soon.
45 weeks ago
Albert Wilson Note
Albert Wilson photo 82. Albert Wilson MIA (at NE)
J.J. Arcega-Whiteside Note
J.J. Arcega-Whiteside photo 83. J.J. Arcega-Whiteside PHI (at NYG)
Andy Isabella Note
Andy Isabella photo 84. Andy Isabella ARI (at LAR)
Isabella was exceptional in college and is so fast that we may seem him break a few long plays for touchdowns this season. Assuming he can win that third receiver job, he may have flex appeal in your fantasy league before long.
48 weeks ago
Hunter Renfrow Note
Hunter Renfrow photo 85. Hunter Renfrow LV (at DEN)
Although there isn't much in the way of week to week upside, Renfrow works as a solid WR4 streamer this week in a terrific matchup versus the struggling Jets' secondary.
37 weeks ago
Keelan Cole Note
Keelan Cole photo 86. Keelan Cole JAC (vs . IND)
The Jags are going on their bye after a terrible performance, but Cole was a bright spot and appears likely to steal the job from Chris Conley once Dede Westbrook returns so keep him on waiver wire speed dial with a great stretch of matchups coming up.

Dante Pettis Note
Dante Pettis photo 87. Dante Pettis SF (at SEA)
Pettis was drafted as a WR3 this summer who had WR2 upside and while we haven't seen it yet, he has been slowly growing toward the role as he separates himself from the preseason injury. He is worth taking a shot on in case he emerges as that top receiver for Jimmy G and it may happen this week in a killer matchup against Washington.

KeeSean Johnson Note

The rookie now has 26 targets on the season and is coming into an excellent home matchup versus a banged-up Falcons secondary that has been getting shredded. He makes for a solid flex play if you are desperate for a decent streamer in Week 6.

Zay Jones Note
Zay Jones photo 91. Zay Jones LV (at DEN)
Believe it or not, Jones finished as a WR3 last season. It wasn't especially consistent and the Bills did bring in John Brown, but Jones is a safe WR5/WR6 type in case you need respectable production during a bye week or in place of an injured player.

Marquise Goodwin Note
Marquise Goodwin photo 92. Marquise Goodwin PHI (at NYG)
There is a real chance Goodwin ends up useless from a fantasy perspective if he is the 4th or even 5th target in this offense, but Jimmy G sure did love Goodwin in their sample size together so keep a close eye on his snap counts in case we get a surprise breakout here.

David Moore Note
David Moore photo 93. David Moore SEA (vs . SF)
There was an initial scare of season-ending surgery for Moore's shoulder injury but it seems to be more minor. With that said, even with his potential upside in this offense, he shouldn't be drafted in standard 12-team redraft leagues. Keep him on waiver wire speed dial, however, in case he returns to health and the starting lineup.

DaeSean Hamilton Note

Hamilton has an excellent matchup Thursday night against the Chiefs but even in a matchup like this, the #3 receiver from a bad offense won't be a start-worthy option.

Willie Snead Note

Snead has been consistently mediocre this season and while that may not sound too encouraging, it should mean we can rely on him as a WR4 or better this week in a perfect matchup versus the Bengals.

Justin Watson Note

Watson did see more targets than Breshad Perriman in Mike Evans' absence, but it was the first time all season that he had multiple targets so it tough to rely on him in Week 15 even against Detroit.

Olabisi Johnson Note
Olabisi Johnson photo 97. Olabisi Johnson MIN (vs . CHI)
Johnson saw 8 targets in Week 7 thanks to Adam Thielen's injury and while he doesn't have a load of upside, you might actually be able to start him this week versus Washington.

Antonio Brown Note
Antonio Brown photo 99. Antonio Brown FA (BYE)
Brown has now been traded by the Steelers, cut by the Raiders and cut by the Patriots. He says he is done with the NFL so you can drop him, but if you can afford a bench spot, it may be in your best interest to hang onto him for a few weeks just in case he comes back with another team.

Donte Moncrief Note
Donte Moncrief photo 101. Donte Moncrief FA (BYE)
It sounds as though Moncrief will be the number two receiver for Pittsburg ahead of James Washington but it is by no means a guarantee. If he does play 80% of the snaps, we could be looking at one of the top breakouts of the season.

Jake Kumerow Note
Jake Kumerow photo 102. Jake Kumerow GB (at DET)
Aaron Rodgers loves Kumerow as he has said over and over again. If anything were to happen to any of their top three receivers, Kumerow is expected to jump into the starting lineup and would be an immediate must-add.

Isaiah Ford Note
Isaiah Ford photo 107. Isaiah Ford MIA (at NE)
Ford looked promising with Devante Parker missing most of the game with a concussion. Is Parker comes back, Ford obviously has no fantasy appeal, but he could a WR5/WR4 if Parker misses as the #2 to Allen Hurns against a weak Giants secondary.

Jaron hauled in two touchdowns but he only saw three receptions and now that David Moore is healthy, Brown is the clear #4 in a low-volume passing offense.

Foster exploded onto the scene at the end of the season and his tape actually looked terrific. He is the ideal type of weapon in Josh Allen's offense and may continue to produce strong weeks every now and then.

With Hakeem Butler headed to the IR and Kevin White cut, this Arizona depth chart is wide open for Crabtree to get early snaps and targets next to Fitzgerald and Kirk. Unfortunately, he likely isn't anything more than a WR5 or WR6 at this stage in his career.
