Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He just continues to do his thing in the slot, as he's now totaled at least 9.0 PPR points in 14-of-17 games since the start of the 2019 season. Even with Diggs and Brown going off the first two weeks, he's managed to stay afloat as a top-45 receiver in PPR formats. The Rams allowed stud nickel cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman to walk in free agency, leaving them to start Troy Hill in his place. There was a point in Hill's career where he was a cornerback you targeted heavily in matchups, as he was allowing over a 110 QB Rating in his coverage during his first four years in the league. Then he had a breakout year in 2019 where he allowed a miniscule 5.95 yards per target in his coverage. Of the 95 cornerbacks who covered at least 300 snaps in 2019, his 54.7 QB Rating in coverage was the fifth best in football. Fast forward one year and he's allowed 12-of-13 passes to be completed for 139 yards in his coverage. The move to the slot has clearly had a negative impact on his play. Beasley should offer a solid floor of a WR4, particularly in PPR formats.In his first NFL game, Hamler ran more routes than any other Broncos receiver. He's been mixed in the slot as well as the perimeter, though he's running the majority of them on the perimeter. That's a bit concerning, as the Bucs best cornerback Carlton Davis plays there, but it's worth noting that Davis has 4.53-second speed while Hamler ran a 4.27-second 40-yard dash in pre-Combine testing. The Bucs did allow 14 pass plays of 40-plus yards last year, which ranked as the fifth most, so there's a chance Hamler gets behind the defense. If he keeps getting seven targets like he did in Week 2, Hamler is going to be someone to look at as a boom-or-bust WR5-type option.

Beasley has quietly been producing as a solid FLEX option for your fantasy roster the first couple of weeks of the season. He's nothing more than a high-end WR4 this week in this matchup, but if you're desperate for a starting receiver and Beasley's on your waiver wire, he's worth picking up and plugging into your lineup.Hamler is in line for an increased opportunity with Sutton out for the year and he certainly has the talent and speed to make that opportunity count for fantasy football. With that being said, Hamler is more of a bench stash right now versus a reliable fantasy asset. Against this defense, it's going to be hard to trust him in your lineup. I recommend waiting a week and seeing what his involvement in this offense looks like without Sutton on the field.
