Player Pos Team Opp Start / Sit Comment
Jakobi Meyers WR NE HOU START Houston's giving up only an average number of fantasy points to wide receivers likely due to the positive game scripts teams face against them, but Meyers is clearly the number 1 target for Mac Jones so he should consistenly be a strong consideration for your fantasy lineups
Alexander Mattison RB MIN DET START Last week, Cook only played half the snaps. He's reportedly still hobbled and the Vikings could get the lead and want to rest Cook. With running backs being difficult to find, Mattison could be an answer for the final week before BYEsstart.
Tee Higgins WR CIN GB START Higgins is back and healthy. GB's top cornerback is expected to be OUT this week which should allow Higginsto return to starter level performance while Chaseis starting to demand attention from opposing defenses.
Jaylen Waddle WR MIA TB START Expect Miami to be in a negative game script and Waddle has become the top target in Miami. Tampa's secondary is riddled with injuries. This should be a great matchup although with a journeyman QB.
Malcolm Brown RB MIA TB SIT Tampa's run defense is extremely difficult to penetrate and Miami's run offense has been less than productive. Brown took control as the lead back last week, but there's no certainty that hestaysin that role.
Trey Lance QB SF ARI START This will be Lance's debut as an NFL starter. His legs give him a safe performance floor. If you drafted him or used a sginicant amount of FAAB to acquire him, you did that to run him into your lineup when he gets his chance. Here it is.
Corey Davis WR NYJ ATL START Look for Corey to continue to be the top target and he gets a plus matchup this week.
Matt Ryan QB ATL NYJ SIT Calvin Ridley is OUT this week and the Jets have been surprisingly stingy vs opposing QBS. Look elsewhere for a QB this week.
