Sammy Watkins ($7200) Bills @ Eagles – Watkins and Tyrod Taylor are starting to get a nice connection going the past few weeks as Watkins has three touchdown’s the last two games with over 100 yards in both. The Philly defense has been routinely beat through the air especially by number one receivers. There was some talk this week about lack of targets with Watkins in the second half of games, so I think Taylor will make a better effort to continue to keep Watkins involved all game long in what should be a high scoring affair. Watkins is priced down 15 spots from the top at wide receiver making him a nice value option this week as well.
A.J. Green ($8500) Bengals vs. Steelers – This game has all the makings of a shoot out as the normally solid Cincy defense is really banged up in the secondary. The Steelers haven’t stopped anyone this year and I think this should be a game that Green rises to the occasion trying to match one of the other elite wide receivers in the game in Antonio Brown. Only one team has allowed more points to receivers this year than the Steelers and I full expect Green to break 100 yards this weekend. Like Watkins, Green has scored three touchdown’s the past two weeks and will look to keep that streak going. Tyler Eifert is returning this week which has some people lowering the ranking of Green, but I don’t think it will matter much as Andy Dalton and Cincy will need to air it out to keep up with the Steelers aerial attack.
Mike Evans ($8000) Bucanneers vs. Saints – Evans has been a consistent option all season long for rookie Jameis Winston. As discussed above, the Saints have been one of the worst defenses in the league all season long. Evans has 30 catches the past five games and should have no problem continuing that streak in another high scoring contest. I don’t often suggest going too heavy on one offense but this might be the week to buy in on the Bucs.
