I said last week that if you couldn't trust Hilton against the Vikings, then when could you? After a three-catch, 28-yard performance, you can't be feeling great. Through two games with Rivers in plus matchups, Hilton currently sits as the WR66 in fantasy, right in between Curtis Samuel and Tre'Quan Smith, just like we all expected. The loss of Parris Campbell surely can't hurt his target floor moving forward. The Jets perimeter cornerback duo of Blessuan Austin and Pierre Desir is another one of the least talented units in football, as the duo has combined to allow 10-for-13 passing for 97 yards and two touchdowns through two weeks. The issue comes down to how many times the Colts will actually need to throw the ball but knowing the Jets' opponents have averaged 70.0 plays per game, we should see at least 30 pass attempts out of Rivers here. Hilton may have hit the point where he's just not the same player, but he doesn't need to be to post WR3/4 numbers in this game.I had to double-check the stat sheet from Sunday night's game, as Edelman's eight catches for 179 yards brought his season average to 13.1 yards per target. He's never averaged more than 7.9 yards per target in his career. Just 51 of his 236 yards are after contact, so Newton is targeting him much further down the field. He's running 81 percent of his routes from in the slot, which means he'll see veteran Lamarcus Joyner in the slot. After a rough start to his slot cornerback transition (from safety), Joyner has been solid, allowing just 9.7 yards per reception, though the 72.9 percent completion-rate is high. The best performance by a slot-heavy receiver against the Raiders since the start of last year is Keenan Allen's eight-catch, 68-yard game where he didn't even score. That's not great for his projection in this game, but you have to keep playing him while getting the targets he is (9.0 per game) from Newton. Consider him a decent floor WR3 who may not come with a massive ceiling in this contest.

The Jets are just 17th against fantasy wide receivers, Hilton is a boom / bust WR2 that has had a slow start to the season.The Raiders are 15th against fantasy wide receivers, Edleman is a WR3 at home this week on an offense that is one of seven in the league that has not had a touchdown scored by a wide receiver.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Hilton's best shot at returning fantasy value was last week against a Vikings secondary that got gouged by Aaron Rodgers and the Packers receivers in week one. Unfortunately, Hilton disappointed and he simply does not look like the old version of Hilton that we've seen on the field previously. Hilton can't be trusted as anything more than a low-end WR3 this week.Edelman was utilized downfield more than anticipated in New England's game against Seattle, which is exciting for fantasy football purposes. Edelman can be rolled out as a weekly WR3 option that could turn into something more if he continues to be used in the intermediate to deep levels of the field.
