Wide Receiver

Allen Robinson, @TB (73%, 8) – Only had 4 catches last week, but was matched up with the Colts best CB, Vontae Davis. Despite the tough match-up, Robinson still got 10 targets and should bounce back against the Bucs and Lovie Smith’s archaic cover 2 scheme.

Brandin Cooks, @PHI (68%, 8) – Coming off a season low 25 yards, but Philly is giving up the 5th most fantasy points to WRs. Drew Brees looked sharp last week and I think Cooks will be busy on Sunday.

Alshon Jeffrey, @KC (48%, 9) – Assuming he plays of course… Jay Cutler should be close to 100% and the Chiefs have given up the most fantasy points to WRs so far this season.

Terrance Williams, NE (32%, 8) – After zero catches in week 3, the Cowboys made a concerted effort to get Williams involved last week with 10 targets. The Cowboys will need to throw to keep up with the Patriots and Williams should get plenty of targets again.

Kendall Wright, BUF (28%, 8) – Was Mariota’s main option in the Titans’ last game with 12 targets and should be again this weekend. Buffalo’s defense has a good reputation but is giving up the 3rd most fantasy points to wide receivers.

Leonard Hankerson, WAS (16%, 7) – Is averaging just over 8 targets per game in the last three and has scored in two of them. Hankerson has taken over the #2 WR slot from Roddy White and barring injury should hold it down the rest of the year.

Kamar Aiken, CLE (2%, 7) – With Steve Smith Sr being ruled out this week Aiken becomes the de facto WR1 for the Ravens. The Browns could be without CB Joe Haden which would make an already suspect defense even more vulnerable and lead to a big fantasy line from Aiken.

Keith Mumphery, IND (1%, 6) – The Colts 2nd & 3rd CBs have been getting roasted all season and with Cecil Shorts and Nate Washington out Thursday night, Mumphery gets bumped to the #2 receiver slot and a favorable matchup for the rookie.
