Start’ Em Sit’ Em Wide Receivers – Week 15

Starts

Start of the Week –

Brandon Aiyuk vs Dallas Cowboys

Aiyuk is now the main receiver on the 49ers with news that Deebo Samuel will be out for the remainder of the regular season. He should do incredible this weekend against the Dallas Cowboys and their terrible defense. He can run, he can catch, and he will score.

T.Y. Hilton vs Houston Texans

Hilton has scored three touchdowns in his last two games as Philip Rivers has developed a connection with the veteran receiver. A match against the Texans does him in the right favor as their secondary as been ice cold this season.

Diontae Johnson vs Cincinnati Bengals

The case of the drops has affected Johnson as of late as he was benched in the first half of the game against the Buffalo Bills. He returned and did as much as he could after a talk with Tomlin at halftime. He should bounce back against the Cincinnati Bengals who he scored 26 points on in his first attempt.

Terry McLaurin vs Seattle Seahawks

McLaurin has posted some duds in the past two weeks, but it revolves around the defenses he has played as well as the quarterback play. He should bounce back against the Seattle Seahawks who have struggled heavily against the pass this season.

Antonio Brown vs Atlanta Falcons

Brown and the rest of the receivers didn’t do that great against a weak Vikings secondary, but game script called for mostly the run. This week they get an Atlanta Falcons defense that is terrible against the pass and guarding receivers. Brown who did decent last week should flourish.

Sleepers;

Marvin Jones vs Tennessee Titans

Nelson Agholor vs Los Angeles Chargers

Sterling Shepard vs Cleveland Browns

Sits

Sit of the Week –

Tyler Lockett vs Washington Football Team

Has Lockett become an afterthought in the Seattle passing game? He caught five balls last weekend against the Jets as the team went elsewhere for most of the catches. It remains to be seen if the same is done here against the Washington Football Team as I expect Russell Wilson to be pressured heavily.

Tyler Boyd vs Pittsburgh Steelers

Boyd was the odd man out last weekend against the Cowboys as A.J. Green got most of the looks and the touchdown. He goes up against the Pittsburgh Steelers who held him to low numbers. The defense has had some issues as of late, but I don’t expect the result to be anything different.

D.J. Chark vs Baltimore Ravens

Chark is losing his ground as a receiver in Jacksonville, but the constant switching at quarterback does not help. He gets Gardner Minshew back this week, but they face the Baltimore Ravens who should do better this week rather than what they did against the Browns.

Jamison Crowder vs Los Angeles Rams

Crowder and the rest of the Jets have been astonishingly bad this season, and I doubt he gets good numbers here against the Los Angeles Rams. Knowing he is the number one wideout will draw the attention of Ramsey even if he is a slot receiver.

Jerry Jeudy vs Buffalo Bills

Jeudy didn’t do great against the Carolina Panthers despite Drew Lock throwing four touchdowns. I would temper his outlook when he faces the Buffalo Bills and their defense that held Pittsburgh in check.

Busts;

Jakobi Myers vs Miami Dolphins

Mike Williams vs Las Vegas Raiders

Curtis Samuel vs Green Bay Packers
