Gary Dickman’s guest on yesterday’s “Rivals Fantasy Football Show” was Jeff Erickson, senior editor at rotowire.com and host of “Rotowire Fantasy Sports Today.” (You can follow Erickson at @Jeff_Erickson.)
Erickson stated that Fantasy Football owners shouldn’t give up on WR Mike Williams (Los Angeles Chargers). Although he has yet to score a TD, Williams is still getting targets and has all the physical skills you’d want in a receive. Said Erickson: “[Williams TDs] will come. It’s going to happen at some point.”
Buffalo WR John Brown is one of Erickson’s “Top 20” WR plays this week.
Ryan Tannehill has made Tennessee WRs AJ Brown and Corey Davis look better, likely due to him having a stronger arm than former starter Marcus Mariota.
With Emmanuel Sanders now with the 49ers, Courtland Sutton is now clearly the No. 1 receiving option at Denver. Erickson warns Fantasy Football owners, however, that Sutton’s numbers might not rise that much because there will be more defensive coverage on him.
Erickson loves WR Kenny Stills this week against the Oakland Raiders.
Chase Edmonds is a good fit for Arizona’s offense. He won’t have the holes to run though this week against the Saints, but his real value in a PPR league is as a pass catcher. Erickson says that’s where Edmonds’ value will come this week.
While the New England Patriots defense has been historically good this season, they’re about to hit a tough stretch on their schedule. It might be a good idea to trade the New England Defense/Special Teams if you can get exceptional value for them.
