We seemed like we were on a path to a monster game with Beckham, who burned Steven Nelson for a 43-yard touchdown, though upon review, they ruled him down at the half-yard-line. The good news is that Mayfield is starting to throw touchdowns and it's only a matter of time before we get an explosion from Beckham. The Dolphins lost their best cornerback Xavien Howard a few weeks ago, and though many were surprised with the lack of production out of the Jets and Colts receivers, John Brown was able to remind everyone they're still horrendous on the back end. He was the eighth wide receiver they allowed to finish as a top-10 option against them this season. Think about it… Beckham will match up with Nik Needham and Ken Crawley this week. If Beckham can't explode in this matchup, it may never happen. Lock him into lineups as a WR1 this week.You'd have to go way back to Week 4 to find the last time Edelman finished outside the top 24 receivers for the week. You'd also have to go all the way back to Week 5 to find the last time he saw less than 10 targets, which will surely help. The Cowboys are a team that'll require plenty of volume to succeed, as there's been just five receivers who've finished better than WR30 against them all season. Four of them saw eight-plus targets while the fifth one was Marvin Jones last week, who caught two touchdowns on five targets. They rank as the third-best team at defending fantasy receivers, allowing just 127.6 yards per game to them. It's not even just limited targets, either, as the 1.56 PPR points per target ranks as the eighth-lowest mark in the NFL. Even going back to last year, there were just 11 receivers who finished top-24 against the Cowboys, so it's clear the scheme is working. But who had the biggest game against them in that time? Golden Tate, another slot heavy receiver, when he totaled 8/132/2 last year. It's important I note they kept Tate in check this year, though, as he totaled just 6/42/0 in Week 9. Edelman should be in lineups as a high-end WR2 but it's not a matchup to attack in DFS.
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
Beckham only has one touchdown this season, and he hasn't gone over 100 yards since Week 6. He does have double digit targets the last two weeks, and he has an attractive matchup with the Dolphins, so he's likely still going to be a starting WR on your squad.Edelman is fourth in the league in receptions and targets, and that's enough to keep him in your lineup. Yes, the Patriots offense hasn't been as explosive as usual, but he's still the clear number one target.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Dolphins are 21st against fantasy wide receivers, Beckham finally hits the easier stretch of the Browns schedule and he should have WR1 appeal this week.The Cowboys are 3rd against fantasy wide receivers, Edelman is a low-end WR1 this week in a tough matchup at home.
