Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
I like Jamison Crowder this week. A lot. The slot receiver exploded against the Buffalo Bills in both of his games against them last year, and he averaged 13.5 targets per game! While a healthy Chris Herndon could take away some of his short-yardage looks, Crowder's recent success against the Bills is tough to bet against. He's got a great floor this week, and he's a great option at WR3 with WR2 upside.One of Indy's wide receivers is going to have a big game this weekend, and it might just be Pittman. The Jacksonville Jaguars lost two of their starting corners from last year (Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye), and they replaced them with first-rounder C.J. Henderson. They have an elite slot cornerback in D.J. Hayden, but that won't affect Pittman -- the Colts drafted him to be their "X" receiver. Although he has a bunch of matchup-based upside, I wouldn't consider starting him outside of DFS GPP lineups.

He's going to get a lot of work in this offense.

If you go and look at the games the Bills allowed to wide receivers last year, you'd see Crowder occupying two of the top three games. He crushed them for 22 receptions, 165 yards, and a touchdown in their two meetings. The other top game they allowed? Another slot-heavy receiver, Jarvis Landry. They are not a team that allows big passing plays, as just one receiver hit the 100-yard mark against them last year, but there were 14 wide receivers who caught at least five passes against them. They were consistent, that's for sure. Not only do we have that, but we also have Crowder as the only receiver who's returning to the starting lineup for Sam Darnold. It's hard to see a scenario where Crowder doesn't see at least eight targets in this game, and they'd be against the same cornerback (Taron Johnson) as last year. The Bills allowed just 10 wide receivers to finish as top-36 receivers last year, so it's not great regardless, but Crowder is the best bet on the Jets this week. Consider him a WR3 who doesn't have a massive ceiling, but he should come with a decent floor.
