Wide Receiver

Start: Zay Flowers, Baltimore Ravens (at Arizona): I think most any player in this Ravens offense is playable this week and the rookie Flowers could have a terrific day. He has at least three catches in every game this season, has been targeted 10+ times in three games and has at least 50 yards receiving in all but one game. He hasn't had a game where he has gone off yet, but it's coming.

Start: Adam Thielen, Carolina Panthers (vs. Houston): In a battle of the first two picks in this year's draft, Adam Thielen helps his QB out by continuing his hot run. Thielen has caught 11 passes, gone over 100 yards and found the end zone in three of the Panthers' last four games. Against the Texans coming off a bye, he puts up big numbers again.

Sit: DeAndre Hopkins, Tennessee Titans (vs. Atlanta): It's being reported that rookie QB Will Levis will make his first career start this week and while the matchup against the Falcons isn't a tough one, I'm finding a less shaky option this week than Hopkins.

Sit: Jaxon Smith-Njigba, Seattle Seahawks (vs. Cleveland): Though the Indianapolis Colts were able to go up and down the field last week against this Cleveland defense, I still wouldn't be thrilled about starting my Seahawks players this week.

Sleeper: Rashid Shaheed, New Orleans Saints (at Indianapolis): Shaheed is the burner for the Saints and he's one of those guys who most people will look over, particularly in DFS play. But he is averaging 16.3 yards per catch this season and has a reception of 40 yards or more in three games this season.

Bust: Marquise Brown, Arizona Cardinals (vs. Baltimore): Hollywood Brown goes up against his old team here, but you can't love the matchup. Just look at what happened to the Lions last week.
