He had a tough matchup last week, as Trae Waynes has just as much athleticism as he does. The Broncos have been forced to lean on Isaac Yiadom at right cornerback, which is where Valdes-Scantling plays the most of his snaps. He's a second-year cornerback who's now allowed 12-of-13 passing for 148 yards through two games. It's not the scheme, either, as he struggled in coverage last year, allowing a 104.9 QB Rating in his coverage. Knowing that Davante Adams has to mix it up with Chris Harris this week, Valdes-Scantling could be a breakout at home. He should be considered a low-end WR3 who has a chance to bounce-back in a big way. He's one of my favorites in tournaments this week.

Many dropped Allison after a zero-target Week 1, though he bounced back in Week 2 in a matchup against the Vikings, who were without their starting slot cornerback. Allison skied over defenders for his touchdown in that game, highlighting what he's capable of in his big-slot role. The Broncos have Kareem Jackson covering the slot now that Chris Harris is perimeter-only, and that's not a great thing for Allison. Jackson has allowed just a 64 percent completion-rate (this is very good for a slot cornerback) and 11.4 yards per reception over his last 18 games, while not allowing a single touchdown on 98 targets in coverage. If there's any positives, it's that Jackson is just 5-foot-10 and 185 pounds while Allison is 6-foot-3 and 202 pounds. While I liked Allison as a sneaky play last week, he's more of a touchdown-or-bust option this week, leaving him on the WR5 radar.
