Week 14: at Arizona Cardinals - $3000

All TE vs ARI

FBG says: Good matchup. It's hard to call young Devlin Hodges a polished prospect. He's being managed very closely and given very little downfield opportunity, with the Steelers running heavily to protect him. Still, his steady-ish play has been a noticeable upgrade on the mistake-prone Mason Rudolph. Hodges has shown the spark of a dynamic connection with wideout James Washington, who's topped 90 yards in 3 of his last 4 games. The pair hooked up on three fantastic, well-contested deep balls last week, making for the most excitement this attack has seen in over a month. Washington would still hold some fantasy value even if JuJu Smith-Schuster can return - he doesn't look likely to - but offers week-winning potential as Hodges' No. 1 target. With the lack of volume at play, though, there's not much stability or upside to be found anywhere else. No. 2 wideout Diontae Johnson have combined to post just 115 yards over the past 3 weeks. The Cardinals opened the year struggling against the pass, but this unit has now plummeted to the bottom of the league by just about every measure. Not even the Week 7 return of All-Pro cornerback Patrick Peterson has helped stop the bleeding. The numbers have been staggering: they've allowed 420+ yards in back-to-back games, and 315+ in 6 of their last seven. Over those 7 games they've surrendered 19 touchdowns through the air, and 7 different receivers have recorded 100+ yards. Peterson has suffered through his worst season as a pro, and rookie Byron Murphy has been even worse across the field. Of course, the Cardinals have gained the most notoriety here in 2019 for their ineptitude against tight ends. The linebackers and safeties have been historically poor in coverage up the seams. They've already allowed 6 different tight ends to top 75 yards - 4 of them cleared 100 - with an astonishing 13 touchdowns along the way. Vance McDonald has largely faded from the Pittsburgh gameplan, but he couldn't ask for a better time to get more involved.
