Welcome to our weekly fantasy football start ’em, sit ’em article for WRs!
Fantasy Football Start ’em, Sit ’em: Week 17 WRs
Start: DeAndre Hopkins Fantasy Outlook vs. Falcons
After the worst game of his professional career, where he was only able to come up with one catch for four yards on his 10 targets from Trace McSorley, DeAndre Hopkins might be tough to trust with your championship on the line. Hopkins is one of the best receivers in the league, however, and despite the performance, 10 targets are elite volume. Go back to Hopkins this week in a much lighter matchup against the Atlanta Falcons, who allow 29.1 fantasy points per game (fppg) to opposing WRs.
Start: Amari Cooper Fantasy Outlook vs. Commanders
Amari Cooper and Deshaun Watson finally looked like they were on the same page last week. Cooper had 10 targets and was able to catch six of them for 72 yards. The Washington Commanders are middle-of-the-road against opposing WRs, giving up 26.8 fppg. -Cooper was listed as a sit in this fantasy football start ’em, sit ’em article last week as a wait-and-see until he and Watson developed a rapport. It looks like this is the case, so get Cooper in your lineup as a WR2.
Sit: Garrett Wilson Fantasy Outlook vs. Seahawks
Last week was tough for the entire New York Jets offense, as Zach Wilson imploded. Garrett Wilson was only able to catch four passes for 30 yards in the game and looks forward to Mike White coming back this week. This is a tough matchup for the rookie though, as the Seattle Seahawks only allow 22.1 fppg to opposing WRs. While you may not have better options to start over Wilson, be prepared that this will not be one of his better games and he has a lower floor this week.
Sit: JuJu Smith Smith-Schuster Fantasy Outlook vs. Broncos
After underperforming last week against the Seattle Seahawks, where he was only able to come up with three catches for 27 yards, JuJu Smith-Schuster is a recommended sit option this week in a far tougher matchup with the Denver Broncos, who allow only 19.8 fppg to opposing WRs on the season (lowest in the league). With the championship on the line, look elsewhere for your WR2.
