Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 4 PPR Rankings
T.Y. Hilton Note

Through three games with Philip Rivers, Hilton currently sits as the WR69 on the season. That's not great, especially when you consider Parris Campbell has missed essentially two games and Jack Doyle missed one game. Hilton has just 17 targets, 10 receptions, and 133 yards on the season, which amounts to less fantasy points than Tim Patrick. This matchup is a problem with his lack of yardage, as the Bears are the only defense in the league who's still yet to allow a single wide receiver touchdown (check Monday night game). On the season, they've allowed just 1.30 PPR points per target, which is the lowest in the league, and it's not without plenty of volume, as they've faced the second-most targets to wide receivers. Hilton won't see more of Kyle Fuller or Jaylon Johnson in coverage, as he moves back and forth while the Bears play sides. If you're expecting a Hilton bounce-back, that's fine, but this may not be the best week to bet on that. Sheer expected volume is what carries into low-end WR3 territory, but he's not very exciting.

Zach Pascal Note

The Colts are now without both Parris Campbell and Michael Pittman indefinitely, meaning Pascal is a surefire every-down player moving forward. Unfortunately, that doesn't mean very much against the Bears defense that's allowed just one receiver to post more than 13.1 PPR points through three weeks despite facing the second-most targets to wide receivers. Pascal played most of his snaps in the slot for the second straight week, so it appears that's his new home. The Bears have Buster Skrine covering the slot, and though he might be the weakest link, he hasn't been bad with the Bears over his 19 games, allowing 66-of-99 passing for 649 yards and four touchdowns. That's just 6.56 yards per target and a touchdown every 24.8 targets in his coverage. Pascal might have some appeal, but against the Bears, there are better options out there.
