 James Washington flashed some big-play potential with Ben Roethlisberger last week, but that's all he is now -- a deep threat. Washington doesn't have much floor, and it's clear that both Diontae Johnson and JuJu Smith-Schuster are ahead of him on the depth chart. In what's likely to be a low-scoring game against the Broncos, I would leave Washington on bench (or on waivers) for Week 2.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Over the final 12 games of 2019, there was just one where Valdes-Scantling saw more than four targets. He saw six of them in Week 1 and turned them into 17.6 half-PPR points, which netted the No. 11 wide receiver performance. Maybe Aaron Rodgers calling him an MVP during training camp wasn't hyperbole. Still, Valdes-Scantling played 42 snaps compared to 68 for Lazard and 70 for Adams, so he's not quite a full-time player right now. That has to give us a little concern, though it doesn't mean he can't produce in matchups the Packers throw the ball enough. It certainly helps that the Lions faced 370 targets to wide receivers last year, which amounts to 23.1 per game, enough to be the second-most in football. The Bears receivers saw 22 targets last week and turned them into 14/201/2. If you're looking for a waiver wire add to potentially start, you could do worse than Valdes-Scantling against this weak secondary. Still, he's in WR5 territory.As expected, these two split the snaps as the third wide receiver on the field in Week 1. It was Washington who edged in snaps (37 to 19) targets (3 to 2) and production, but there's not a big gap and you can't clearly say to start one over the other, as Claypool should continue to grow as a young receiver. When starting either of them, you're just looking for that big play because it's very unlikely either of them see more than five targets in any given week. We'll continue to monitor the snaps between these two moving forward, but don't start either of them in season-long leagues until one separates from the other.
