Wide Receiver

Start: Jakobi Meyers, Las Vegas Raiders (at Chicago): It has been announced that Raiders QB Jimmy Garoppolo will miss this game due to injury, so the Raiders will turn to either Brian Hoyer or Aidan McConnell against the Bears. While Davante Adams is the top WR on this team and that won't change, Meyers has been targeted 10 or more times in three of the five games he has played in.

Start: Chris Olave, New Orleans Saints (vs. Jacksonville): There have been some bad teams against the pass this season, but the Jags have been the worst. Having to go on the road to face the Saints on a short week for a Thursday night game, look for Olave to post a big stat line.

Sit: Jerry Jeudy, Denver Broncos (vs. Green Bay): There is simply no reason to start this guy at this time. He seems more interested in arguing on social media than playing football.

Sit: K.J. Osborn, Minnesota Vikings (vs. San Francisco): In the Vikings' first game without Justin Jefferson, Osborn was targeted just five times and had 48 yards receiving. That came against the No. 30 ranked Bears passing defense. I'm not sure why we would be expecting things to get better against the Niners this week.

Sleeper: Romeo Doubs, Green Bay Packers (at Denver): This is a big-time sleeper pick because Doubs is coming off of a one-catch game his last time out, but against th Broncos, who rank 31st in pass defense, he's worth a flier.

Bust: Michael Pittman, Indianapolis Colts (vs. Cleveland): A result of the bad matchup, Pittman will still see his targets as the team's No. 1 WR but it might be a long day for him.
