Who would've thought that having Taysom Hill under center would unlock Thomas? Through three games with Brees, Thomas had just 10 catches for 95 yards. Through one game with Hill, he has nine catches for 104 yards. To be fair, the game was against the Falcons, but Hill looked Thomas' way early and often. Thomas received 12 of Hill's 23 pass attempts for a massive 52.2 percent target share. He'll have a tougher test this week against the Broncos, who've allowed just 7.47 yards per target to wide receivers this year, which is the second-lowest mark in the NFL, behind only the Rams. With that being said, alpha wide receivers have done well against them. On the year, there have been six wide receivers who've seen more than eight targets against them, and every one of those receivers finished with 15-plus PPR points. There have also been 13 wide receivers who've finished with five-plus receptions against them, which should present a great floor for Thomas. For now, we'll put him back in the WR1 conversation even though it is a small sample size with Hill because all we really wanted to know was that his target share would be there, and it was.Sure, Woods sees in-between 5-8 targets in 8-of-9 games coming into Week 11 against the Bucs, but then suddenly gets targeted 15 times. Sometimes you just have to accept the volatility of the NFL and move on. Woods now has seven touchdowns on the season, which ties a career high. There have been times where McVay changes the offensive plan mid-season and you wonder if that happened a few weeks back, as Goff is throwing the ball a lot more over the last month. Unfortunately, Woods did see 10 targets against the 49ers the last time they played, though they only netted four catches for 29 yards, but he did sneak in a touchdown to salvage his fantasy day. There have been rumors that the 49ers might get Richard Sherman back from injury this week, though Jason Verrett has done a great job in his place, allowing just 16-of-25 passing for 162 yards and one touchdown. Whichever one plays, that's who Woods will see about 40-45 percent of the time, but the Rams have done a great job moving him around to get him better matchups. With the increased passing volume, the arrow is pointing up for Woods, even if this matchup isn't all great. Consider him a low-end WR2/high-end WR3 who comes with a solid floor.

Thomas finally had a 100-yard game this week, he is more of a WR2 playing with Taysom Hill, but he at least is back on the fantasy radar in what has been a lost season for him.Woods did have 12 fantasy points the last time these teams met, despite Jared Goff struggling in that game. Woods is low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 this week.
