I need 4 out of these players this is a ppr league A. Thielen , E. Sanders, M. Williams, R. Higgins, C. Davis, C. Thompson I see this week you have M. Williams ranked higher than both Sanders and Davis but I think both of them will get more targets than Williams giving them better chances for bigger games. If you would play Williams can you give insight into the reason why you think he is a better play over someone else. Thanks

Thompson, Thielen, Sanders, and Davis
Sanders doesn’t get a high enough protection due to Keenum struggling to throw TDs (none in his last two games). Davis played well last week with no threats to steal targets or playing time. Williams has a matchup with more scoring expected thus a better chance to get a bigger piece of the passing pie in LA.
For the first time in his young career, Davis showed his explosive upside against the Eagles. He caught nine of his 15 targets for 161 yards and one TD while gaining over 20 yards on four plays. Overall, Corey has 22 catches for 312 yards and one TD on three targets, which puts him on a path for a special season. The Bills didn’t allow a TD to a Vikings or Packers WR over the last two games. On the year, WRs have 60 catches for 641 yards and four TDs on 92 targets vs. Buffalo with Adam Thielen (14/105) being the only WR with over 100 yards receiving. CB Tre’Devious White tends to minimize the damage in both yards and TDs. I like his direction, but his salary is much higher than I’m willing to pay at DraftKings.
Game score should have led the Chargers passing a lot last week, but LA had success running the ball (27/126) while focusing on their RBs in the passing game(9/86/2 on 13 targets). Williams was on the field for 68 percent of the plays run by the Chargers, which was in line with the two previous two games. He finished with only one catches for 15 yards on three yards. Over the first three games, Williams caught 11 of his 15 targets for 189 yards and three TDs. CB Gareon Conley will allow some big plays, but he does have talent after Oakland drafted him in the first round in 2017. Scoring ability, but Mike needs more targets to reward Fantasy owners at this level.
Sanders continues to be the best WR in Denver even with two straight short outings (5/38 and 5/45 while gaining 53 combined yards on two rushes). Over his last three games, Emmanuel only has 19 targets. He shined in Week 1 vs. the Seahawks (10/135/1 on 11 targets). WRs have 62 catches for 781 yards and three TDs on 104 targets against the Jets with two teams having a high level of success (DET – 19/253/1 and JAC – 17/260/1). Four WRs have over 100 yards receiving against New York (Kenny Golladay – 7/114, Jarvis Landry – 8/103, Dede Westbrook – 9/130, and Donte Moncrief – 5/109/1). His salary is high for his opportunity plus Case Keenum hasn’t thrown a TD in three games. More reasons to avoid than to take him to the daily dance, but he does have a much more favorable salary at Fanduel.
