Pass Catcher Adds
WR Keke Coutee, HOU (19.7%)
I talked him up last week, include a cute (Cout?) picture of him as the feature, and he’s still owned in less than 20% of leagues. He had another terrific game. Pick the rookie up. He’s for real.
WR Mohamed Sanu, ATL (53%)
Sanu either has touchdown or 100+ yards in each of the past three weeks. He also has a great divisional matchup at home against the Bucs. All of the hype lately has been going to rookie Calvin Ridley, but it’s Sanu who has been on the field more. In last week’s game, Sanu saw 82% of the snaps, while Ridley was out there for only 66.7%. Snaps mean opportunities, which Sanu will have plenty of.
WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling, GB (3.2%)
If Cobb or Allison miss more time going forward, MVS will see a big increase of time on the field. Even with them healthy, he has earned trust with Rodgers, proven he can perform at a high level, and offers an athletic skill set that the Packer offense really needs to utilize.
WR Tre’Quan Smith, NO (1%)
The rookie had a breakout performance on Monday night, highlighted by making the touchdown catch to give Drew Brees the all-time passing yards record. Smith finished with 111 yards and two touchdowns in Ted Ginn’s absence. If Ginn misses more time moving forward, it seems Smith will be a main beneficiary.
WR Antonio Callaway, CLE (26.8%)
Callaway hasn’t been great, but he has high upside and will see more targets with fellow receiver Rashard Higgins out 2-4 weeks.
TE Greg Olsen, CAR (60.9%)
Yes, he is over the 60% mark I said I would stick to, but only slightly. After going down in week 1, the Panthers hope to get Olsen back for their matchup against the Redskins this week. Obviously many dropped him, so take a look to see if he is out there.
TE Cameron Brate, TB (16.7%)
Jameis Winston loves throwing to Cameron Brate. So with his return as starting quarterback, this alone significantly raises his value. Also, fellow tight end OJ Howard is still out with a MCL sprain, meaning Brate will be the sole tight end ready to soak up the targets.
