Deebo Samuel – San Francisco 49ers

Deebo Samuel had a down game in comparison to the previous two. Where he posted over 20 PPR point games without finding the end zone, this time he posted a 2-50-1 line against Green Bay, but saw just two targets. Now the 49ers only threw just 20 times, so this is part of the story, but George Kittle and Emmanuel Sanders being back and/or fully healthy is also a part of it. I still believe he is the third option within this group, and his upside is still there. He will be in matchups where San Francisco will have to have a bit more urgency through the air. It took some time, but the 49ers have found their core of receiving options, and it is a good one.

DeVante Parker – Miami Dolphins

The ownership is slowly trickling up, and he is the highest owned here, but is still floating around shallow leagues where he is deserving of a start everywhere. He is coming off a 6-91-0 week against Cleveland, and will take on Philly, both New York teams, and Cincinnati over the next four weeks. He had another double-digit target game, and produced 15.1 PPR points with his line. Parker’s target share continues to be high, and over the last five weeks, Parker has generated the 9th most fantasy points, and is 7th in targets. Parker is still my favorite add, and is a must start for me with his remaining schedule.

Randall Cobb – Dallas Cowboys

I was hesitant about the matchup, but he posted a 4-86-0 line on seven targets, and he continues to churn out PPR points. He still has a tough remaining schedule, but Week 12 was a boost of confidence. The touchdown upside is limited, and he doesn’t have much appeal in standard formats, but 30 targets over the last four weeks is noticeable. Dallas has at least established themselves as a serviceable passing offense, where Cobb can still thrive in these types of matchups.  Cobb has posted over 40 fantasy points in the last five weeks, more than Julian Edelman and Cooper Kupp in that four game span.

Robby Anderson – New York Jets

Because of the upcoming schedule and resurgence of Sam Darnold, Robby Anderson is a desperate weekly flyer with upside. He isn’t being peppered with heavy targets, but is going to have Week 12 type upside against Cincinnati and Miami in weeks 13 and 14. Darnold has been airing the ball out, but has been spreading the ball around getting production from all angles. His floor is low, but that threat for a home run ball is still there. You could certainly do worse than Anderson moving forward. Both Cincinnati and Miami rank 32nd and 31st in DVOA against the pass.

James Washington – Pittsburgh Steelers

James Washington has scored more points than Odell Beckham over the last four games, and has started to find a groove in a lackluster Pittsburgh offense that is likely going to continue to rotate their quarterbacks. Washington looked great against Cincinnati, as most players usually do. While the quarterback play is poor, the upcoming two matchups are once again spots where Washington can thrive, facing Cleveland and Arizona. Week 15 is tough against Buffalo, but he then faces the Jets after. Since the bye week, Washington has posted 6, 4, 7, 5, and 6 target games. Within those in PPR scoring, he has scored 3.1, 10.9, 19, 7.9, and 18.8. This is certainly an improvement from the first five games where he failed to top ten PPR points in any game.

N’Keal Harry – New England Patriots

The production here is still going to be dependent on Mohamed Sanu and Phillip Dorsett’s status, but things do open back up for the Patriots, facing Houston, Kansas City, and Cincinnati over the next three weeks. Since returning from IR, he has eight targets, but just a 4-28-1 line for production. Harry is a deeper league option at this point, where the workload could potentially grow over the next few weeks. Dorsett should return, but hasn’t been high volume, where Sanu was reported to miss multiple weeks. Given the matchups, and the flashes we have seen already, I don’t mind grabbing him in leagues with limited options.

Allen Hurns – Miami Dolphins

Allen Hurns has seen 4, 6, and 7 targets over the last three games, catching ten balls for over 100 yards and one score. Miami will continue to find themselves in good passing game scripts, and the matchups over the next few weeks are also a plus. Philadelphia, both New York teams, and Cincinnati are on the horizon, where Hurns has a chance in deeper leagues to have some value. Hurns had that horrendous injury a while back, and has been working his way back. With injuries to Preston Williams, Hurns has a chance to gain some targets.
