Week 7 Rankings

Well it's getting a little weird now. Hopkins still recorded nine receptions on 12 targets (good) but it was only for 55 yards (less good) and he hasn't scored since Week 1 (not at all good). He's still a buy, but we expected these less-than-stellar performances to subside by now.

There's two ways of looking at Fuller's performance from last week. On one hand, he "came back down to earth" with a 5/44/0 performance, providing those opposed to Fuller justification in their hate. On the other hand, he dropped three should-be touchdowns against the Chiefs and finished the game with 158 air yards, which was the sixth-most in football in Week 6. He's a big part of this offense and though he didn't have a big game last week, you need to live with that. The Colts have allowed just one 40-yard passing play all season and allowed just four the entire 2018 season, so they're not typically beat deep. The loss of free safety Malik Hooker could definitely affect that, so we raise the odds. Pierre Desir is the cornerback he'll see most of the time, who happens to be the cornerback that's allowing the most yards per catch (16.0) in his coverage among the Colts cornerbacks. Fuller should remain in lineups as a WR3 who continually gets opportunity. You just must understand that by playing him, you may get a WR4/5 floor (which isn't horrible), but he also offers a WR1 ceiling.
