Week 15 PPR Rankings

Jarvis Landry photo 25. Jarvis Landry WR - (at ARI)
He's now totaled at least 62 yards in 9-of-13 games, something only seven receivers can say. The difference is that Landry has had the touchdowns (particularly over the last six games) that Beckham hasn't. The Cardinals have a struggling secondary that's allowed 14 different receivers to hit 60-plus yards, which includes slot-heavy receivers Tyler Boyd, Danny Amendola, Golden Tate, Chris Godwin, and Cooper Kupp. They now have former undrafted free agent Kevin Peterson covering the slot. He's played just 348 snaps in the NFL over his four years in the league. While in coverage this year, he's allowed 15-of-21 passing for 241 yards, though he hasn't been responsible for a touchdown in his coverage yet. It's not just Peterson, either, as the entire team has combined to allow 94-of-117 passing for 1,210 yards and 11 touchdowns in the slot. That's an 80.3 percent catch-rate, 10.3 yards per target, and a touchdown every 10.6 targets. How bad is that? Michael Thomas has a 82.3 percent catch-rate, 9.7 yards per target, and scores a touchdown every 21.0 targets. Landry should be locked into lineups as a rock-solid WR2 with top-12 upside.

News came out prior to last week's game that Beckham has been playing through a hernia that will require offseason surgery. Apparently, the injury was prior to the season started, which is obviously not great news for those who invested a first-round pick on him. Despite this injury, Beckham has totaled 52-plus yards in 9-of-13 games, which is something only 17 other receivers can say. The issue has been his ceiling, as it hasn't existed. He's topped 87 yards just twice all year, which will keep him in WR2/3 territory no matter how consistent he is. Is the Cardinals matchup good enough to take him into top-12 territory? There have been 12 wide receivers who've seen eight or more targets against the Cardinals this year, with each of them totaling at least 13.4 PPR points, which is typically enough to get into the top-30 receivers for the week. Six of those receivers finished as top-12 options on the week. Even if the Cardinals choose to have Patrick Peterson shadow him, it's not a bad thing, as Peterson has been a shell of his former self, allowing 31-of-39 passing for 440 yards and three touchdowns in his coverage. Beckham may be a shell of his former self as well, but he's still someone who should be in lineups as a mid-to-low-end WR2 this week.

It was the worst-case scenario for those who were looking forward to streaming Njoku this week against the Cardinals. He was activated and played in Week 14, but he was on the field for just 20-of-54 snaps and saw three targets, hauling in just one for four yards. That's hardly enough to give you confidence in starting him, even if it is the best matchup on earth for tight ends. The Cardinals have continually proven they're as bad as advertised against tight ends, as they've now allowed 10 tight ends to finish top-10 against them. They've each totaled at least 11.3 PPR points, which is a number that no other team has allowed more than eight tight ends to hit. Not just that, but seven of those tight ends were able to finish as top-three options on the week. The 2.44 PPR points per target they've allowed requires just 4-5 targets for your streaming tight end to hit value. Because of that, Njoku is on the low-end TE1/high-end TE2 streaming radar. He comes with plenty of risk, but what tight end doesn't?
