Wide Receivers

Zay Flowers - Ravens vs. Cardinals - WR16 - Projected Points 12.1

This is three weeks in a row Flowers has over 12 fantasy points. With the new passing offense starting to click, I expect Flowers to be given more opportunities each week. This week he is going against a Cardinals defense that has given up the most yards to wide receivers and the fourth most fantasy points. Last week the two top receivers for Seattle both scored 16 fantasy points.

Christian Kirk - Jaguars vs. Steelers - WR17 - Projected Points 11.9

Since week two Kirk has scored more than 14 fantasy points every week. This week at Pittsburgh he goes against a defense that has given up the 6th most yards and the sixth most points to receivers. After playing last Thursday his legs should be a bit fresher and if he is matched up against the 33-year-old Patrick Peterson, this should be a mismatch
