Christian Watson, Green Bay Packers

Christian Watson owners have likely been quite frustrated in this young season as he missed the first three games of the season with an injury and finally played in Week 4, catching just two passes for 25 yards while being targeted in the passing game just four times. One of those catches was for a touchdown, so that was one good sign.

Patience sometimes pays in fantasy football and Watson has now had 11 days to rest between games and get ready for this Monday night tilt against the Raiders. He MUST produce.

Perhaps even more than his teammate Jones, Watson has to get going and he has to be the No.1 target in the passing game for Love. It's nice to see Love distribute the ball around to the likes of Romeo Doubs and Jayden Reed, but Watson is the team's No.1 receiver and he needs to look like it.

Jerry Jeudy, Denver Broncos

The Broncos have been really bad this season but the offense has actually been more than competent. Russell Wilson, who was terrible last season, has been one of the more efficient passers in the league this year.

But Jerry Jeudy isn't contributing to that. On the season, he has just 11 receptions for 158 yards. He's been targeted in the passing game just 17 times.

Jeudy injured his hamstring in the preseason and that had him dropping down fantasy drafts boards, but those who selected him were still expecting more than this when he got on the field.

The Jets will be missing two of their top three cornerbacks for this week's game against the Broncos and Jeudy must find a way to take advantage of that. He was a first-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft and it's time for him to start playing like one.
