Well after week one I can say there were a lot of surprises. I mean who would've thought that Kansas City running back Spencer Ware would've outdone most receivers in PPR leagues, even if you took away his rushing yards. Or how OBJ ended up being the 47th receiver come the end of the week. But weeks like this happen, it's football and it's early. Getting a good read on guys like Will Fuller, who I'll talk about later, is tough because the sample size is so small. So for this week and the next few, names and opinions may jump around until I can get a better of the talent pool going forward. With that said, let's see where everyone falls on the list this week.
|3||Odell Beckham Jr.||NYG||NO|
Sammy Watkins - The Bills play tomorrow and as of Tuesday Watkins was listed as a non-participant in their practice. He dressed for the team walkthrough, but that's it. This has me concerned. The quick turnaround and the uncertainty is what is making me hesitate. If he is 100% come Thursday then he's a top-15 play in my book. Rex Ryan says he will play, but we do not know to what degree yet. Will the Bills risk playing him every snap? That's my issue and why he sits at #30. More will come about his status come Thursday so all Watkins owners should keep a close eye.
DeSean Jackson - I have him as a top-15 play, read it again.... Top-15. Kirk Cousins did not look good that game at all, and yet Jackson still had over 100 yards and ten targets. You can see the chemistry between the two and I love how Cousins was constantly looking downfield. Jackson had two catches over 30 yards and was targeted on a couple more big throws. Jackson is the deep threat in Washington and Cousins is not afraid to launch it to him. You only need one catch to make the night worth it and if Cousins keeps going long, it's just a matter of time until Jackson hauls it in.
Will Fuller - Don't expect Fuller to land in the top-10 scoring this week. That being said, Fuller was lighting up on targets. He was thrown nearly one of every three routes he ran. Fuller is a boom-or-bust guy that really is only worthy of a flex play if you need it. But make no mistake, he is worthy of grabbing on the waiver wire.
T.Y. Hilton - I'm not concerned about how good the Broncos defense is, Hilton can shine this week. Andrew Luck threw for 385 yards and four touchdowns against Detroit. Even up against elite defenses, good quarterbacks like Luck can find ways to exploit them. And he will use the fastest guy on the field to help him. Luck will be targeting Hilton all day long. And if Hilton can cash in he will have a good day.
