Stefon Diggs ($6600) Vikings @ Raiders – I am sure many of you just watched what Antonio Brown did to the Oakland Raiders defense last Sunday. Diggs has been compared to Antonio Brown by teammates and NFL analysts early in his young career. I am not going to predict that Diggs goes off for 17 catches and 284 yards like Brown just did, but I believe the Raiders will struggle to cover him much like they did with Brown and his quick routes. The Raiders as a whole have been bad defending receivers and this is setting up to be an easy play. Diggs caught only three passes last week and may fly a touch under the radar. Fire him up this week in what should be a very productive and busy day.
Allen Robinson ($7500) Jaguars @ Ravens – Robinson has sneakily had an amazing season through the half way point of the year. He has scored in double figures in 5 straight games and has caught 29 balls during that stretch. He makes for a very consistent play but also has shown 30 point upside as well and is a huge threat in the red zone. The Ravens are 2nd worst against both the quarterback and the wide receiver and Blake Bortles has consistenly been able to find Robinson. Fire him up with confidence.
Jarvis Landry ($7000) Dolphins @ Eagles – Landry has been one of the most consistent receivers in the NFL this season scoring double digit fantasy points in 7 of the 8 games he has played in. The Eagles currently are 3rd worst against the wide receiver and Landry is really the only consistent weapon that Ryan Tannehill can rely on. Landry is also coming off a game where he caught 11 balls and continues to be force fed on a game by game basis. The Eagles will have a hard time containing him in this one and he should easily continue his streak of double digit games.
