Week 8 Rankings

Allen hasn't gone over 100 receiving yards since Week 3, but owners can take solace in the 11 targets he had in Week 7. He's a low-end weekly WR1.

His targets (6) came back down to realistic territory last week, which is a bit of a downer, but the good news is that he's seen eight red zone targets this year. He's only caught one of them, and it wasn't for a touchdown, so positive regression should catch up at some point. As a gauge, there are 13 other receivers who have as many red zone targets, and 11 have scored at least two touchdowns. The Bears cornerback duo of Kyle Fuller and Prince Amukamara have not been very good this year, though they have been better against big receivers the last few years while struggling with premier route runners. Look at the big performances they've allowed this year: Emmanuel Sanders, Paul Richardson, Michael Thomas, Terry McLaurin, and Stefon Diggs. None of them are big-bodied wide receivers who are the box-out with my body types, but pure route runners. Williams is likely to take a backseat to Allen this week and should be considered a middling WR4 who likely needs a touchdown in order to avoid being a bust.
