Riley Cooper PHI (53%): Look, I don’t like this guy as a person either, but in his last two games he has 8 catches for 241 yards and 5 touchdowns. Look at those numbers again and then go put in a waiver bid.
Max FAAB: $30
Jarrett Boykin GB (43%): Every QB has his go-to guy and it looks like Boykin is Seneca Wallace’s (13 targets). Anyone getting over 10 targets a game is rosterable in my book.
Max FAAB: $20
Aaron Dobson NE (55%): Belichick called Dobson the Pats #2 WR this week. That is enough for me to put in a claim. His numbers are going to vary a bit week-to-week, but with Ammendola’s injury history and Gronk no sure thing either… I think Dobson has a couple of big games left in him this season.
Max FAAB: $20
Rishard Matthews MIA (4%): Who? I know nothing about this guy expect that he had 14 targets on Monday night and caught 11 of them. My 10+ target rule applies. Don’t over think it. Mike Wallace looked uninterested Monday night and appears to have given up on the Dolphins and his fantasy owners (never again, Mike!). Somebody has to catch the ball in Miami and it’s looking like Mathews is Tannehill’s #1 option.
Max FAAB: $10
N0 – Tavon Austin: After drafting (and dropping) Austin in every one of my leagues this year, I’m going to need to see more than one good game before I am back on board. He only had 3 targets and took two of them to the house. That’s fun to watch, but not a sustainable ratio no matter how fast Austin is.
Coby Fleener IND (55%): Put up mediocre numbers last week (4-33) but had 10 targets.
Max FAAB: $7
Tyler Efiert CIN (18%): Put up mediocre numbers last week (3-55) but had 10 targets.
Max FAAB: $5
* Not a typo. These two tight ends are eerily similar; They both were high draft picks (34, 21), both went to prestigious academic schools (Stanford, ND), both have lost targets to other tight ends on the roster (Allen, Gresham), both have douchy names (Coby, Tyler), and both have failed to meet expectations so far in their young careers. I haven’t given up on either.
NO – NA
