I’m in a 1/2 ppr with a 5-point bonus for 100 running or passing yards.
I’ve ridden Chubb this year, but his situation is tenable this week. Is DeAndre Washington (now that’s he’s the starter) a better play this week?
I need three WRs: McLaurin, Sutton, and M. Williams are my starters right now. I also have Boyd, Deebo Samuel, Fuller, and Perriman. Would you change out any of them? I don’t trust Boyd and Samuel. Fuller has an injury issue and Perriman is Perriman.
Thanks for your time.

I’m playing Chubb.
The Ravens should be ready for Chubb this week after he drilled them for 183 combined yards with three TDs and three catches in Week 4. The Browns continue to give Chubb plenty of touches per game (21.8). He’s rushed for over 100 yards in seven of 14 contests while gaining over 100 combined yards in one other game. Chubb has eight TDs while gaining 1,685 combined yards and 35 catches. He scored over 20.0 Fantasy points in three other games (29.90, 25.40, and 23.80 Fantasy points). Baltimore pushed their way to fifth in RB defense (19.65 FPPG) after allowing fewer than 20.0 Fantasy points to the RB position in eight of their previous 11 games. Even with a progression vs. RBs, the Ravens allow 4.5 yards per rush with RBs scoring 11 TDs. Don’t dismiss.
I’m doing the WR research today.

Thanks for talking me off the ledge regarding Chubb.

The connection between Dwayne Haskins and McLaurin started to shine through over the last two games (4/57/1 and 5/130/1). Over his six previous games before the last two weeks, he caught 19 passes for 238 yards on 34 targets. His season started with a TD in each game (5/125/1, 5/62/1, and 6/70/1) while also shining as well in Week 6 (4/100/2). After 13 games, McLaurin had 51 catches for 833 yards and seven TDs. The Giants rank 28th in WR defense (39.65 FPPG – 183/2611/20 on 273 targets) with eight WRs (Michael Gallop – 7/158, Amari Cooper – 6/106/1, Mike Evans – 8/190/3, Adam Thielen – 7/130/2, Julian Edelman – 9/113, Kenny Golladay – 6/123/2, Allen Robinson – 6/131/1, and Allen Lazard – 3/103/1). CB DeAndre Baker is a top talent, but his rookie season hasn’t gone well. He allows too many big plays with more than a handful of TDs allowed. Possible bomb for a TD with an uptick in chances.
The Broncos looked Sutton’s way ten times in the snow last week, which led to four catches for 79 yards. He is the 17th ranked QB (14.61 FPPG) in PPR leagues with only three short games (3.70, 8.00, and 8.40 Fantasy points). In his two best games (24.20 and 23.40 Fantasy points), he scored five of his six TDs at home while averaging 7.6 targets per game. Detroit allows the second-most Fantasy points (40.51 FPPG – 190/2676/17 on 314 targets) to WRs. The Lions had a tough time with WRs in three of their previous five games (DAL – 16/301/1, CHI – 22/82/1, and TB – 16/303/4). Seven WRs (Larry Fitzgerald – 8/113/1, Stefon Diggs – 7/142, Michael Gallop – 9/148, Randall Cobb – 4/115/1, Anthony Miller – 9/140, Chris Godwin – 5/121, and Breshad Perriman – 5/113/3) have over 100 yards receiving vs. Detroit. CB Darius Slay wasn’t part of the Lions’ failure in coverage vs. WRs in Week 15. Slay should shadow Sutton, which will force Drew Lock elsewhere for success in the passing game. Not ideal, even with the temptation of last week’s struggles looming in the back mirror.
Over the last six games, Williams showed more value in yards in two games (3/111 and 5/117) while extending his scoring streak to two weeks (2/63/1 and 4/71/1). He gained over 70 yards in six of his previous ten games, but he caught four balls or fewer in seven of his last eight games. Williams gained 55 yards with two catches on three targets in Week 10 vs. the Raiders. CB Nevin Lawson started four of the previous five games with failure risk in two contests. Williams is on the move, but his chances tend to be short in most weeks.
The Patriots held Boyd to three catches for 26 yards on seven targets in Week 15. He played better in his previous three games (5/101/1, 5/59/1, and 5/75) while receiving 25 combined targets. Over his last 11 games, he gained fewer than 70 yards in nine games with two other disaster games (3/10 and 1/0). Boyd is a much better player at home (123.8 Fantasy points – seven games) than on the road (65.4 Fantasy points – seven games) in DraftKings. His top three games (10/122, 10/123/1, and 5/101/1) all came at home. The Dolphins rank 29th in WR defense (39.73 FPPG – 168/2468/25 on 280 targets). Eight WRs gained over 100 yards against Miami (Marquise Brown – 4/147/2, Terry McLaurin – 4/100/2, Juju Smith-Schuster – 5/103/1, John Brown – 9/137/2, Jarvis Landry – 10/148/2, Alshon Jeffery – 9/137/1, Robby Anderson – 7/116/1, and Sterling Shepard – 9/111). Boyd should see plenty of targets with a chance to score this week.
