3 of 3

Wide Receiver

Rishard Matthews, MIA (33%) – Has back-to-back 100+ yard games and already has 3 TDs this season. Matthews has become one of Tannehill’s favorite options and is averaging just under 8 targets per game. I’d be comfortable starting Matthews as my WR3/Flex in all formats.

Marvin Jones, CIN (21%) – The Bengals offense is rolling right now and Jones has scored in consecutive weeks. He’s the 3rd option in the Bengals passing game, but is getting enough looks to be a useful sub during bye weeks.

Michael Crabtree, OAK (49%) – Didn’t do much last week with only 36 receiving yards, but is still averaging 11 targets per game on the season. Crabtree is a border line Flex start in PPR leagues and worth owning in all formats.

Reuben Randle, NYG (29%) – Coming off his first big game of the season with 7 catches for 116 yards and a TD. Randle is inconsistent, but has the talent to put up useful fantasy lines in any match-up and would be a decent bye week replacement.

Cecil Shorts III, HOU (10%) – Hasn’t had more than 60 yards receiving in a game yet, but has been a favorite target of both Hoyer and Mallett and is averaging just under 10 targets per game. If Shorts keeps getting that many looks, it’s just a matter of time until he has a big game.

Allen Hurns, JAX (10%) – Has deep speed and big play potential as he showed last week with a 59-yard TD. He’s not going to score every week, but with the right match-up could be a high upside bye week play.

Tight End

Eric Ebron, DET (49%) – Didn’t score last week for the first time this year, but did have a season high 61 receiving yards and remained involved in the offense. Ebron has more upside than most TEs and should be owned in all leagues.

Charles Clay, BUF (18%) – Has scored in each of the last two games and is averaging over 5 targets per game. If your starting TE has a bye coming up, you could do a lot worse than Clay.
