Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 15 PPR Rankings
Kenny Golladay photo 24. Kenny Golladay WR - (vs . TB)
He's caught 10-of-13 targets from Blough over the last two weeks for 216 yards and two touchdowns, which isn't bad at all. In fact, Robert Woods is the only receiver with more fantasy points over the last two weeks. Adding Marvin Jones to injured reserve this week should also raise his floor/ceiling. That's good to know with the Bucs up next on the schedule. They've allowed the most fantasy points to wide receivers and it's not even close. They've allowed 46.3 PPR points per game to the position, while the next closest team (Cardinals) has allowed 40.0 points per game. They aren't the worst defense on a production-per-target basis (actually 11th) but with some many targets available on 41.3 pass attempts per game, there have been 18 different wide receivers who've seen eight-plus targets. In fact, any time a receiver has seen seven or more targets against them, they've finished as a top-30 receiver. Golladay should be in lineups as a high-end WR2 with upside for more in this game.

Danny Amendola photo 86. Danny Amendola WR - (vs . TB)
He hasn't been exactly fantasy relevant since losing Matthew Stafford, but he has seen eight targets in each of the last two games with Blough under center. With T.J. Hockenson and Marvin Jones on injured reserve, there are a lot of targets available against a Bucs team that's faced a league-high 41.3 pass attempts per game, including 24.9 to wide receivers. As stated in the Golladay paragraph above, the Bucs have allowed any receiver who's seen at least seven targets to perform as a top-30 wide receiver. It's not a small sample size, either, as 19 receivers have done that. If you're extremely desperate and just want a receiver who will have a floor of 8.0 points in PPR formats, Amendola might just be your answer. He should be considered a somewhat low-upside WR4 but one with a stable floor.

J.D. McKissic photo 119. J.D. McKissic RB - (vs . TB)
McKissic isn't doing much running the ball, but nobody is running the ball well against Tampa. Between the tough running matchup and the loss of Marvin Jones in the passing game, it could lead to McKissic being used as a receiver out of the backfield more often, giving him desperation flex appeal in PPR leagues.

Logan Thomas photo 155. Logan Thomas TE - (vs . TB)
We talked about the Lions tight ends last week, saying there was a possibility that Thomas would be the leading receiver and not Jesse James. That's exactly what happened. Thomas ran a team-high 22 routes and saw four targets. That's not exactly enough to feel confident starting him or anything but the matchup against the Bucs is a good one. They have allowed the third-most fantasy points to the tight end position this year and have held just 3-of-13 tight ends out of the top-15. To be fair, of the 10 tight ends who did finish top-15, eight of them saw at least six targets, something that seems somewhat unlikely for Thomas. He's nothing more than an emergency back-end TE2 but one who might just be crazy enough to work.
