WR Notes: Antonio Brown is on pace for his third 1,600-yard season in four years. … Julio Jones seems to always be playing through something. This week it’s a “lower leg injury,” in the words of coach Dan Quinn. He seems more likely than not to suit up against the Cowboys. Jones has two 99-yard games in the past three weeks. … Limited to seven catches for 74 yards over his past three games, Brawlin’ A.J. Green has an exploitable matchup in a Titans D that’s given up a ton of huge fantasy efforts to enemy wideouts. … Michael Thomas has caught fewer than five passes just once all season, and fewer than seven once in his past six games. Fantasy owners are probably tired of hearing it, but one of these weeks, it’s all going to come together. … Averaging 10 targets over his past four games, Doug Baldwin will be doing short-week battle with a Cardinals secondary that’s struggled to defense the slot. … DeAndre Hopkins’ two highest targeted games have actually been Tom Savage’s starts. Including last season, Hopkins has at least 15 looks in three of Savage’s four career starts.

Golden Tate has gone at least 7/90 in three straight games. Briean Boddy-Calhoun is having a decent year in the slot for the Browns, but battling a hamstring issue, will have a tough time hanging with the darting Tate. … Dez Bryant is trying to get over knee and ankle injuries. He appears to be genuinely questionable to suit up against the Falcons. … Browns No. 1 CB Jason McCourty (ankle) could return from his two-game absence to do battle with Marvin Jones. Even if he does, he will have a hard time keeping up with a big-play threat averaging 6/110/1 over his past three appearances. … The Broncos have continued to mostly secure enemy wideouts, but sprung a significant Week 9 leak against Alshon Jeffery. Likely to have the ball all evening, Tom Brady will figure out a way to get Brandin Cooks his yardage. … Adam Thielen has caught at least five passes in 8-of-8 games. He also finally found the end zone in Week 8 before the Vikings’ bye. Stationed in the slot, he should mostly avoid Josh Norman and Bashaud Breeland in Washington.

Someone who won’t be able to avoid Norman and Breeland is Stefon Diggs. It’s a tough matchup, but coming off the Vikings’ bye, Diggs should be as healthy as he’s been in some time. One of the NFL’s most natural playmakers, Diggs offers monster upside any time he’s close to 100 percent. … Although his target average didn’t increase, Devin Funchess posted a season-high 86 yards in Carolina's first game without Kelvin Benjamin. The Dolphins are one of the softest matchups for rival receivers. … The one thing Brock Osweiler seemed capable of doing in Week 9 was locking onto Demaryius Thomas. Coming off their bye, maybe the Patriots will continue to improve against the pass. They’re still silver plattering the second most receiver fantasy points. … Allowing the second fewest is the Steelers. T.Y. Hilton’s monster upside makes him impossible to drop any lower, but his odds of hitting it will be lower than usual. … With a touchdown in each of his past three games, Robby Anderson is the WR9 by average points over the past three weeks. Jeremy Kerley’s suspension and Austin Seferian-Jenkins’ regression should help stabilize Anderson’s floor. Kerley’s absence has Jermaine Kearse back on the WR3/4 borderline.

Yes, the 97-yard touchdown helped, but JuJu Smith-Schuster is all the way up to WR13 status by average points, and is No. 2 in yards per target (11.78). The Colts’ secondary is mostly made up of swinging gates. … DeVante Parker has at least 69 yards in 4-of-4 healthy appearances. … Always boom or bust, DeSean Jackson’s boom odds will increase with Mike Evans sidelined, even though Ryan Fitzpatrick will be filling in for Jameis Winston. The Jets seem likely to again be without No. 1 CB Morris Claiborne (foot). … Sure to be low owned in DFS leagues, No. 1 Giants WR Sterling Shepard could be a sneaky play against the 49ers’ league-worst secondary. … Like Tom Savage with DeAndre Hopkins, Drew Stanton figures to remain locked onto Larry Fitzgerald, but the targets will be low quality against the Seahawks’ still-stingy pass defense. … Averaging 33 yards over his past two games, Jarvis Landry is a last-gasp WR2 with DeVante Parker back in the fold. … No. 1 Rams WR Robert Woods has gone 4/59 in four straight games. The Texans have been rolling out the welcome mat for wideouts.

Ted Ginn leads the NFL with 13.33 yards per target. He's hit 60 yards in four straight games. … The matchup is right for Emmanuel Sanders on paper, but still battling through his ankle injury, hay is unlikely to be made with Brock Osweiler. … Averaging a modest 54 yards over his past four games, Keenan Allen couldn’t have a worse matchup in the Jaguars. … Marqise Lee has gone at least 4/72 in three straight games, though Casey Hayward looms for Sunday. … The Packers’ post-Aaron Rodgers offense is having a difficult time getting Jordy Nelson targets. Brett Hundley seems more comfortable with Davante Adams dumpoffs/Randall Cobb trickeration. Nelson gets the (slight) benefit of the doubt because, well, he’s Jordy Nelson. … Set Kelvin Benjamin’s weekly Bills over/under at 4/40 for now. … For whatever reason, Cooper Kupp is tied for second in red zone targets (13). … Sammy Watkins, who has been healthy all year, is tied for 121st in total targets (31). … If Paul Richardson plays, he’ll be flipping coins with Tyler Lockett. … Corey Davis is ticketed for more snaps. He could be a WR2 this time next month. … Curtis Samuel and Zay Jones both showed enough in Week 9 to earn “big play dart throw” status.
