3 of 4

Wide Receiver

Michael Crabtree, OAK (54%) – His production has been inconsistent but Crabtree gets around 8 targets every week and last week found the end zone for the 2nd time this season. He’s worth owning in all PPR leagues and most standard formats as well.

Danny Amendola, NE (15%) – I thought week six might be a fluke, but Amendola got 9 targets for the 2nd week in a row and caught 8 of them for 86 yards and a TD. With the struggles that Brandon LaFell and Aaron Dobson are having catching the ball, Amendola may have locked up the Pats WR2 job and a spot on fantasy rosters.

Marvin Jones, CIN (41%) – Andy Dalton and the Bengals passing offense have been better than anyone expected this season and Jones has benefited with TDs in three of the last five games. He also has averaged 10 targets per game over the last two and is a solid WR3 who should be owned in more leagues.

Stevie Johnson, SD (41%) – Is healthy again after a three game lay-off, but looked rusty last week. The Chargers are hurting at WR, so Johnson should continue to get looks and could have some big games. The Chargers D is one of the worst in the league, so Rivers should be throwing often the rest of the way.

Michael Floyd, AZ (43%) – Got off to a slow start this season, but has scored in each of the last two games and the Cardinals have been airing it out. Floyd used to be a dangerous deep threat and if he’s 100% healthy, could hook up with Palmer for some big plays in the 2nd half.

Tyler Lockett, SEA (15%) – Had the best receiving game of his young career last week with highs in catches (5) and yards (79) and his first receiving TD. Lockett may be the most talented receiver the Seahawks have and seems to be developing a rapport with Russell Wilson. There may be some down weeks, but Lockett has the potential to be a useful fantasy asset in the 2nd half.

Nate Washington, HOU (5%) – The Texans are awful. Every week they seem to fall behind big by halftime and spend the 2nd half airing it out. Washington was the benficiairy last week with 16 targets and as long as he stays healthy should continue to see looks as the Texans WR2.
