Wide Receiver

Start: Tyreek Hill

If you have Tyreek Hill on your team going up against Kansas City, you should be in for a big treat once again. Hill is already the most dominant fantasy player this year and now he gets the opportunity to beat down his old team for the first time since he was traded away from them. Hill is getting double digit targets almost every game and has five games over 100 receiving yards.

While the Chiefs’ defense has been much better than previous seasons, it is hard to prepare for a guy like Hill that can get right past a defender or go out of the backfield in motion in Mike McDaniel’s offense. Hill could easily be almost the entire offense going against the Chiefs in Germany.

Sit: DeVonta Smith

The NFC East gets its best division game this week in Philadelphia, where it is the Eagles and the Cowboys in the 4 PM windows. In what could be a high scoring game, Eagles’ wide receiver A.J. Brown is expected to once again go for over 125 receiving yards and the Dallas defense could be a big impactful unit to help shut down the Eagles’ offense.

While Brown is expected to be the biggest player to contain, on the other side is DeVonta Smith, who has been up and down this year only has one game north of 100 receiving yards. There are many Eagles to feed this Sunday going up against a tough Dallas defense and Smith could easily be the odd man out, as Brown and D’Andre Swift see their production time go up. Avoid Smith this week in what could be a risky move for fantasy football owners.
