DFS Roundtable: Rapid-Fire Receivers

The DFS team discusses wide receiver depth charts around the NFL for clarity of usage and production

Wide Receiver rapid-fire responses: how you feel about the following depth charts:

Justin Howe: If Cooper Kupp and Brandin Cooks are both held out of Week 6, it's assumed there will be a huge spray of high-impact opportunity sent all to the healthy options. Let's revisit last season when top target Robert Woods missed three games late in the year. Without Woods, Jared Goff upped his targeting of Todd Gurley (to 19%) and began to involve rookie Josh Reynolds (14%). Reynolds wasn't very efficient, producing just 60 yards over 14 targets, but he's shown a big-play rapport with Goff. The two hooked up for 22- and 17-yard receptions last week, and Reynolds chipped in 10 more on a run. Woods is the more desirable play this week, but Reynolds is the dirt-cheap GPP pivot.

Better days are coming for Doug Baldwin. He's back up to a full complement of snaps, and his Week 5 dud wasn't anything to gauge his value by. He drew a lot of coverage from Rams slot cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman, who's been great thus far - Baldwin isn't the only big-name slot man he's shut down. It's more important to note that, when Baldwin first returned in Week 4, he led the team in targets over just 76% of their snaps.

It seems pretty clear to me that John Brown is more vital to the Baltimore offense than Michael Crabtree. Joe Flacco's cannon-strength arm has been forgotten about for years, and last season's nagging back woes didn't help things. He spent most of 2017 throwing underneath to low-impact receivers. But here in 2018, healthy and forced to prove his worth, he's back to looking down the field. And no one's benefiting more than Brown, who remains one of the NFL's fastest receivers. Through 5 weeks, Brown has caught just 20 balls, but 7 have spanned more than 20 yards.
