Hunter Renfrow is a buy in all leagues. LVR plays ARI in Week 2. Disappointing Week 1 is only disappointing at first glance. He’s still running the routes, still in the slot, and still got 17% target share (6). Carr was just having fun with his shiny new WR1. That will fade and defenses will adjust. Renfrow will still be a top30 WR. You saw what Mahomes did to the Cards, buy now.
Cam Akers is a buy in all leagues. LAC plays @KC in Week 2. Understand you are buying an investment. Do not diminish your starting lineup to make this trade. But the fact is Henderson’s usage was amazing. The problem for Henderson is that his production wasn’t. 82% opportunity share is the 4th best for RBs, ahead of JT, Henry, CMC, Dalvin, etc. Unfortunately he only garnered 12.3 PPR. As Akers gets up to speed (he was only recently declared healthy) and Henderson shows us who he is (nothing special) Akers will get his chance.
Cade Otton is a add in dynasty leagues. TB plays @NO in Week 2. The highest snap share rookie TE wasn’t Likely or Bellinger, or Jelani, it was Cade Otton. You saw him on the field blocking great all game. But he didn’t run any routes, he didn’t get targets, so why am I buying? Because he’s on the field with Tom Brady. Otton was a great receiving TE in college. He and Likely both stuck out in production despite falling under the radar in the draft. All Cade Otton needs is opportunity and he’s on the field getting it. All 6-5″ 250lbs of him. Brate had nearly 80% route participation, 47% slot rate. That’s Otton’s for the taking.
Donovan Peoples-Jones is a add in deep leagues. CLE plays NYJ in Week 2. Now I’m not saying the Brown are the Ravens, or Brissett is Lamar Jackson, but the Jets are giving up big plays and DPJ had a whopping 11 targets Week 1. Somehow wasn’t being highlighted on waiver wire shows this week. Get him before they wise up after a good Week 2.
Juwan Johnson is a add in deep leagues. NO plays TB in Week 2. Juwan is back on Next Week Tonight after being a Week 1 call last year. But unlike last year, I don’t think he’s disappearing. 5 Targets, 17% TS, 80% route participation and 67% slot rate points to this being the real deal. These weren’t just dump offs either. Buy all the Saints.
Robbie Anderson is a add in redraft leagues. CAR plays @NYG in Week 2. Apparently Robbie Anderson is good with any quarterback not named Sam Darnold. 24.5% Team WOP share puts him in the range of Brandin Cooks, CeeDee Lamb, Michael Pittman, Stefon Diggs. The 8th highest yards per team WOP in Week 1. He got opportunity and he produced.
Derek Carr is a stream in 1qb leagues. LVR plays @TEN in Week 3.
Geno Smith is a stream in 1qb leagues. SEA plays ATL in Week 3. For the deeper and more desperate, Seattle moved the ball decently Week 1 against a good defense, let’s try him against the Falcons.
Kyle Philips is a stream in all leagues. TEN plays LVR in Week 3. Philips had 9 targets on 68% slot usage. Raiders kept things short. Should be added regardless, whether you’re streaming him or not.
Sony Michel is a stream in redraft leagues. LAC plays JAC in Week 3. Sony is the real grinder backup in LAC. If its a blowout vs the Jags, Sony will be the one running it out. Getting Redzone opportunities.
Hayden Hurst is a stream in redraft leagues. CIN plays @NYJ in Week 3. Picking on the Jets.
Eagles DST is a stream in redraft leagues. PHI plays @WAS in Week 3. Is it a revenge game for Wentz or is it validation for the Eagles? Either way, Wentz is always a good bet to give up turnovers.
