Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
There have been six games where Johnson has played all four quarters. His target totals in those games are 10, 13, 15, 10, 11, and 16. That's a bit ridiculous, but his fantasy managers won't be complaining. Over the last two weeks, he's caught 18 passes for 227 yards and a touchdown. Will his ridiculous target share continue against the Ravens, who've seen just a 53.8 percent target share to wide receivers (third-lowest mark in NFL)? The average wide receiver reception against them goes for just 11.92 yards, which would benefit Johnson, whose average depth of target is just 8.8 yards. The last time they played, Johnson needed to leave the game for a bit (getting checked out for injury), and it led to him seeing just three targets. He played 41-of-53 snaps, so it wasn't a massive absence, which goes to show just how tough the matchup with the Steelers is. He plays most of his snaps at LWR, which is where Jimmy Smith is usually at, but he's very questionable for this game with an ankle injury. If he were to miss this game, that would move Marlon Humphrey out to the perimeter, and slide Tramon Williams into the slot. All-in-all, it would be a slight upgrade for Johnson, as Humphrey is dominant in the slot, but has been a bit more human on the perimeter, allowing 9-of-15 passing for 130 yards there. Johnson should offer a decent floor as a low-end WR2, but don't expect a massive performance.Parker hasn't been getting the elite targets he was last year, as his 6.5 targets per game pales in comparison to the 8.0 targets per game he saw last year. If the Dolphins are quick to pull Tagovailoa if he struggles, that's not a bad thing for Parker, who benefits from playing with Fitzpatrick. This is a matchup Parker should crush, as the Jets have allowed 202.1 yards per game to wide receivers this year, which makes them one of just three teams who've allowed more than 189.6 yards per game. Wide receivers have also caught a league-high 72.6 percent of their targets against the Jets, which makes you feel better about the lack of volume Parker's had with Tagovailoa. The downside is that the Jets held him to just 3/35/0 on eight targets earlier in the year, but their secondary has continually trended down as the season's gone on and has recently changed direction. They're now starting rookies Bryce Hall and Lamar Jackson on the perimeter with 2017 undrafted free agent Arthur Maulet in the slot. That didn't go well against the Chargers, as Keenan Allen and Mike Williams combined for 20 receptions, 217 yards, and two touchdowns. Parker should be in lineups as a low-end WR2/high-end WR3 this week.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Johnson has posted at least 77 yards receiving in his last 3 games and he has had back-to-back 100-yard games. He should be a WR2, even against the Ravens tough defense that is 4th against fantasy wide receivers.Parker finally had a touchdown last week and after watching Keenan Allen destroy the Jets D, I would roll with Parker this week as an upside WR2. The Jets are 28th against fantasy wide receivers.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Johnson just may be one of the most underrated receivers in the entire NFL. He put on an absolute show last week and he has been the focal point of this offense for every game that he's been healthy. Even in a tough matchup, Johnson belongs in your lineup as a mid-range WR2.Parker was able to put together a solid performance last week, but the majority of his yardage came with Ryan Fitzpatrick in the game. Tua was able to connect with him in the end zone on a sharp goal-line fade, but that's difficult to comfortably project week after week. It's a fantastic matchup for Parker, so he's worth starting this week, but the unknowns with the QB situation keep his ranking from skyrocketing in week 12. Parker can be viewed as a high-end WR3 that certainly has upside.
