After two rock-solid performances of 8/99/0 and 6/72/0 that earned his way back into fantasy owners' hearts, Brown suffered an ankle injury that could limit practice time and availability. Brown hasn't played well through his injuries earlier in the season, so let's hope he practices in full this week. Unfortunately, it doesn't matter all that much because you shouldn't be relying on him for much production. Receivers have only been targeted 18.2 times per game against the Chargers and that's led to just 11.1 wide receiver receptions per game, the lowest in the league. On top of that, we're likely to see Diggs draw Casey Hayward in coverage, which would leave Michael Davis for Brown. On the year, Davis has been the better of the two, allowing just 35-of-53 passing for 430 yards and one touchdown in his coverage. There have been just eight top-36 wide receivers against the Chargers this year, so feel free to look elsewhere, as Brown's just a risky WR5.We've now had three weeks with Michael Thomas back, and it's official, Sanders is not a full-time player. His snap percentages with Thomas in the lineup this year are 48, 30, 58, and 59. That hasn't stopped him from getting some targets when on the field, but he hasn't topped five targets in any game Thomas has played, which certainly caps his appeal. Now going into a matchup with the Broncos who've allowed just 7.47 yards per target to wide receivers, which is the second-lowest mark in the league. Of the 16 wide receivers who've totaled double-digit PPR points against the Broncos, just two of them finished with less than five targets, and they both needed to score to get there. It's Hill's first start in a road game against a competent opponent, Sanders isn't seeing the field more than 58 percent of the time, and he has a five-target ceiling with Thomas in the lineup. Sanders looks like a relatively weak WR5 option this week.
