Up to date 10/28 at 11:30 PM ET. eliminated Deebo Samuel. Added Van Jefferson and adjusted Rams receivers.
Week 8 receivers
WR Notes: The 49ers permitted 19 weeks 4 targets to Cooper Kupp. … Tyreek Hill has reached 12 targets in 5-of-7 appearances. Considered one of solely two move defenses to permit greater than eight yards per try, the Lions are going to have their palms full. …
Predictably regressing to his elite imply, Sure’Marr Chase had two scores of 30-plus yards in Week 7. The Browns haven’t any potential solutions so far as I can see. That can change if Denzel Ward (concussion) lastly will get cleared. … coming off bye, Justin Jefferson shall be going through a Cardinals protection that has allowed only one 100-yard day to any wideout this season. It did are available in Week 7 towards Chris Olave. … Simple to run on and routinely in adverse recreation script, the Packers are someway handing out the fewest passing yards within the league. With the Payments 11.5-point house favorites, Stefon Diggs might battle for his typical quantity. Working in his favor is an offense that by no means takes its foot off the fuel and is at all times in “show a degree” mode.
Let’s perform a little level chasing with De Andre Hopkins, who appeared as wholesome as he has in two years for his Week 7 return. Solely 4 groups are permitting extra weekly passing yards than the Vikings and no protection is allowing extra yards per move try (8.4). Hopkins did not have bother reintegrating into the Cardinals’ system in Week 7, hey What the system… AJ Brown hasn’t spiked a recreation since Week 1. Maybe that can change towards the Steelers’ injured and struggling secondary. Mike Tomlin‘s protection did rally for a robust effort towards the Dolphins. … reeling from the worst drop by any move catcher all season, Mike Evans is nonetheless coming off a 15-target effort. The Ravens are a comfortable touchdown matchup. … battling by a hamstring ailment, Tyler Lockett may very well be the one present on the town towards the Giants with DK Metcalf uncertain with a knee situation. 10-12 targets might be Lockett’s flooring. … Not seeing significant touches within the run recreation and posting underwhelming receiving numbers, Deebo Samuel finds himself at a little bit of a crossroads in an offense implementing one more YAC stud in Christian McCaffrey. To make issues worse, he has a hamstring situation. A possible slugfest within the Rams won’t be the matchup to get Samuel off the Schneid if he fits up.
Amon-Ra St. Brown joined a rising legion of not-concussed — allegedly — gamers to have to take a seat out in Week 7. If there’s a silver lining, it is that it purchased his ankle one other week to heal up. The Dolphins and their accompanying 51.5 over/below are a possible eruption spot. … Tee Higgins posted 93 yards and was the Bengals’ No. 3 receivers in Week 7. With their move fee over expectation exceeding 20 % every of the previous two weeks, the Bengals may very well be implementing an offense that dramatically will increase Higgins’ already excessive flooring and ceiling. … As feared, the Cowboys remained conservative regardless of Dak Prescott’s Week 7 return. Now they discover themselves as large house favorites towards a Bears protection extra permissive on the bottom than by the air. CeeDee Lamb might have to attend one more week for his long-awaited breakout. … One of many signature increase/bust wideouts of the primary half of the season, Jaylen Waddle has the identical increase setup as each different talent participant in Lions/Dolphins. … talking of increase/bust, Gabe Davis may be the brand new prototype. Regardless of his ever-present menace of draw back, a wholesome Davis has the type of upside that may’t be left outdoors the highest 20.
Recent off busting Vance Joseph‘s protection for the best recreation by any opposing wideout this season — the Cardinals have confronted Cooper Kupp different Davante Adams, amongst others — Chris Olave shall be encountering a extra forgiving Raiders D. With neither Michael Thomas (foot) nor Jarvis Landry (ankle) but to renew working towards, Olave continues to face zero goal competitors. … The Colts’ passing quantity goes to lower below Sam Ehlinger. The hope for Michael Pittman is that his goal share consolidates and stabilizes in what ought to be a dramatically simplified offensive method. … as hoped, Taylor Heinicke’s return instantly spiked Terry McLaurin’s goal share and produced his finest all-around recreation of the yr. Heinicke makes for inherent volatility — he isn’t superb — however in contrast to Carson Wentz, he’ll at the very least constantly throw the ball to his finest receiver. … Coming off his first massive all-around recreation since Week 3, Christian Kirk has a humdinger of a London matchup within the Broncos’ Patrick Surtain. Surtain has confirmed to be the uncommon cornerback matchup value adjusting the rankings for. … Allen Lazard (shoulder) seems on the flawed facet of questionable. In concept, that is good for Romeo Doubshowever the Packers’ confidence of their rookie wideout appears to be a brand new low heading into Week 8.
Supposedly on the commerce block, Jerry Jeudy has out gained Courtland Sutton 256-163 because the Broncos’ offense has gone off the rails the previous 4 weeks. Sutton maintains the Week 8 rankings benefit solely as a result of Russell Wilson is returning, and regardless of Jeudy’s latest manufacturing, there was little indication Russ is ready to alter WR1 horses mid-stream. … This may be the ultimate week I rank Diontae Johnson’s junk quantity over George Pickens‘ more and more evident upside. … Nowhere near 100% wholesome on a brief week in an offense that appears determined to recommit to the run, this WR3 rating might be beneficiant for Rashod Bateman. It is simply exhausting to shake the notion that Bateman can change video games and fantasy matchups on just one catch. … Rapidly consolidating targets within the Giants’ undermanned offense, Wan’Dale Robinson has a possible blow-up spot within the Seahawks’ protection. … *Allen Robinson has one good recreation* Allen Robinson will get one other shot as a WR4. Getting a bit more healthy, the 49ers might go both approach as a matchup. … Donovan Peoples-Jones’ quantity has confirmed sticky sufficient to maintain him within the high 48 on a weekly foundation. … DrakeLondon has 5 targets in two weeks. There is a 41.0 complete for ATL/CAR. No thanks.
