Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 1 Rankings

Keenan Allen Note

The Justin Herbert-Keenan Allen duo has faced Vic Fangio's defense on three separate occasions since 2020. Allen has posted 12 targets, 10 targets and 9 targets in those three contests. He has also scored or posted at least 67 yards with four-plus receptions. As long as Allen is not held back by any injury, he's going to be posting fringe fantasy WR1 numbers like we saw during the back half of the 2022 season. He also cooked this Miami defense to the tune of 12 catches for 92 yards on 14 targets last season.

Mike Williams Note

Williams had a rare boom game alongside a healthy Allen when he last faced Miami, going 6 for 116 and 1 TD. He was not heavily targeted (6 targets) but delivered in a big way as Big Mike tends to do. 5-99-1, 4-39-0, 3-63-1 and 4-54-0 are the stat lines he has posted versus Vic Fangio's Broncos defenses since 2020, which fits William's boom-bust profile to a tee. But given his status as the clear-cut No. 2 - miles ahead of Joshua Palmer and Quentin Johston- I am embracing the boom-or-bust profile with Williams in Week 1 as an upside WR3 play.

Quentin Johnston Note

All indications are that QJ is the No. 4 WR on the depth chart behind Joshua Palmer. Will that be the case all season? Probably not. But for Week 1, leave the first-rounder on the bench with him likely not accumulating enough snaps/routes for any worthwhile fantasy production.
