Amari Cooper $6,000
Cooper has only averaged 27.7 yards per game this season if you take out his monster 210-yard performance against the Chiefs, but the talent is there and any week could be that week again. I think this is the week! New England is ranked 31st in the league in giving up fantasy points to wide receivers and is worst in league with passing yards against giving up an average of 287.2 yards- per- game. All this mixed in with the fact that e Raiders might be playing from behind means the Carr-Cooper connection could be in full force. Watch for cooper to go for 100+ yards and two touchdowns.
DeAndre Hopkins $6,100
Hopkins is the #1 receiver in football, and even without DeShaun Watson, he has put up substantial numbers. Last week he caught seven of 14 targets for 111 yards. The Cardinals are giving up 245.1 yards-per-game through the air and Hopkins should be force-fed the ball yet again in an offense struggling to find their way after the season-ending injury to Watson. Watson will still get over 100 yards and score at least one touchdown.
Willie Snead $3,000
That’s right I’m going off the reservation on this one. Snead who is still on the comeback trail and has one catch on the season could go off against the Redskins. Brees has always spread the ball around, and the Redskins defense has struggled to hold down slot receivers all season. This is still the guy that had 69 and 72 receptions in his first two seasons. Snead is always a favorite coach Sean Payton, and now back to full health he could work him into the ofense more. With him being as teal at only $3,000 Snead make for a sneaky boom or bust play against the Redskins. Watch for 75 yards and a score from Willie this week.
