It was going to be a tough matchup for Woods last week regardless, though Goff not showing up made it even worse. Fortunately, he was able to rush for a touchdown to salvage something out of his fantasy day. Things get much better this week, as Woods will see one of either Desmond Trufant or Kendall Sheffield in coverage. Trufant is dealing with a toe injury that had him inactive last week. Sheffield is a fourth-round rookie who's only playing because of injury. The duo has combined to allow 17-of-27 passing for 279 yards and five touchdowns in their coverage, though all five touchdowns were allowed by Trufant, so it's hard to say that it's even much of a downgrade for Woods if he plays, though Sheffield would be the preferred option. Woods has still seen at least eight targets in 4-of-6 games, so you don't want to lose hope, especially in a game that has a 53-point total. Toss him into lineups as a low-end WR2/high-end WR3 and he just might turn into the top-18 option many thought they drafted.

Everett has a solid stretch, but with Higbee also getting looks at TE, he is unlikely to be a consistent TE1. Still, he is a decent bye week fill-in this week.

Splitting snaps at the position with Everett, Higbee's upside is severely limited. Still, he is getting consistent looks and can be a decent bye week fill-in this week, treated as a TE2.
