WR Notes: I was too low on Michael Thomas last week. I feel fine chasing those points against a Bengals defense allowing the most passing yards. … With Denzel Ward (hip) likely to be sidelined, the Browns are going to be in a world of pain against Julio Jones. Julio’s 117 receiving yards per game leads the league. … Antonio Brown is fighting it more than usual this season, but his nine touchdowns still have him in the top five by average points in .5 PPR. … Davante Adams has cleared 80 yards in 4-of-5 games, averaging 105 in the process. The Dolphins’ defense is in full-on collapse. … Held to 70 receiving yards or fewer in each of his past three games, Tyreek Hill is in another one of his little lulls. His floor is high enough that you keep featuring as a WR1 for when he reaches his monstrous ceiling. … Odell Beckham has hit 10 targets in every game but one and is averaging 98 yards. Even with Eli Manning on his farewell tour, Beckham has shown more than enough to maintain every-week, high-end WR1 status.  

Coming off his first 100-yard receiving outing since Week 1, Keenan Allen has a dream matchup in the Raiders. Jon Gruden’s “defense” is getting destroyed for 9.1 yards every time the opposing team attempts a pass. Allen has already posted an eight-catch effort against the Raiders in 2018. … The good news for Mike Evans in Week 9? He still drew 10 targets. He should bounce back against Washington. … Tyler Boyd has flirted with WR1 production even with A.J. Green in the lineup. Without him, Boyd is going to devour targets for the receiver-needy Bengals. No team is allowing more fantasy points to enemy wideouts than New Orleans. … Rams receivers: I’m mostly guessing. Robert Woods has been the most consistent. Brandin Cooks has the most upside. Cooper Kupp is almost as consistent as Woods and arguably has more upside because of his touchdowns. For Week 10 I’ll put the most predictable Woods 1, moon shot Cooks 2 and best mixture of them both Kupp 3. All you really need to know is that each is a rock solid WR1/2.

JuJu Smith-Schuster has been a rich man’s Kenny Golladay of late. He’s a game or two away from tumbling down the WR2 ranks. … Jarvis Landry matched a season low for targets (seven) in OC Freddie Kitchens’ debut. It is still safe to assume it was a fluke. Hopefully Landry’s prodigious volume becomes higher quality under his new play-caller. … It’s a bit remarkable that Marvin Jones and Kenny Golladay combined for just 12 targets in the first game of the post-Golden Tate era, especially since Matthew Stafford attempted 36 throws. Jones doubled up Golladay in looks (8-4). Both pre- and post-Tate, the trend in Detroit’s receiver corps has been clear: Jones is in the ascendancy, Golladay is in reverse. I would be lying if I said I understood Golladay’s usage. It could change on a dime. … Josh Gordon has gone 36/364/2 in five games since Julian Edelman’s return. Edelman is 31/322/2 in the same time period. Both have strong matchups against the Titans. Gordon (hamstring) is no longer listed on the injury report. … Golden Tate’s Eagles arrival figures to ding Nelson Agholor and Zach Ertz more than Alshon Jeffery. Some might preach more caution, but I would immediately plug Tate in as a WR3 in an offense that loves high-percentage looks.  

Quietly, Sammy Watkins checks in as the WR12 by average .5 PPR points over the past three weeks. He should mostly avoid Patrick Peterson against the Cardinals … is what I wrote before Watkins’ foot injury. He will be a candidate for removal. … T.Y. Hilton has just five grabs for 59 yards in two games since returning. It is going to be difficult to break out against the Jaguars. … Calvin Ridley’s volume still leaves something to be desired, though he is coming off a season-high nine targets. The Browns are very banged up in the secondary. … Getting a chance to establish himself as the Packers’ No. 2 receiver, Marquez Valdes-Scantling is the kind of size/speed prospect Aaron Rodgers has not had in a while. Already making big plays and compiling some counting stats, MVS could pretty quickly become a serious problem for opposing defenses. … Running as hot and cold as ever, DeSean Jackson remains in the WR2 mix because of Ryan Fitzpatrick’s willingness to take shots. … With D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel joining Greg Olsen in the target collection department, things are getting dicey for Devin Funchess.

Finally healthy and experiencing improved play-calling, Larry Fitzgerald is looking on the up and up. Josh Rosen is going to have to throw all day against the Chiefs. … Some combination of Doug Baldwin, Tyler Lockett and David Moore is going to do something against the Rams’ collapsing defense. I’m not terribly certain who it will be. Shootout conditions will hopefully be a rising tide lifting all boats in a Seahawks offense that is going to have to pass more than it would like. … As expected, the Cowboys forced the ball to Amari Cooper in his Dallas debut. If Dak Prescott can get the ball off against the Eagles’ pass rush, Cooper will have a vulnerable secondary to take advantage of. … Corey Davis has 66 yards on 17 targets over the past two weeks. Keep betting on volume but know that it will be of WR4 quality. … Christian Kirk has been highly inconsistent but could be a DFS week winner against the Chiefs’ burnable defense. … Taylor Gabriel’s unsuccessful run as the Bears’ No. 1 receiver appears to be ending, as Allen Robinson (groin) is practicing in full. … Maurice Harris plays into Alex Smith’s worst habits. That means he’s a match made in heaven with Smith in fantasy.
