Christian Kirk

Grab a Helmet

Marquise Brown vs TEN

My plan for success this week involves stacking Jackson and Brown against a struggling Titans defense giving up the 5th most fantasy points to the receiver position. After a spate of brutal matchups against the Steelers, Colts, and Patriots, the skies should open up. (and if they donít...oooh baby). Hollywood went for 7-126 in last yearís playoff game, and has been a squeaky wheel recently. Expect a few deep shots to finally connect this week. My confidence here seems irrational even to me, but the Ravens have too much talent on and off the field not to get this offense figured out.

Christian Kirk @ SEA (THU)

Despite a slow start and a down Week 10, Kirk still has been heating up over the last month. He has 22 targets over the last three games, including a 5-37-2 line against the Seahawks in a 37-34 shootout and 3 double-digit scoring games in his last four. Clearly taking a backseat to Deandre Hopkins this year, Kirk will benefit from the attention Seattle is sure to give his teammate as the ball should be flying all over the field Thursday night. An upside WR3, Kirk is a strong starting consideration.

Logan Thomas vs CIN

Thomas has had a long winding road to being a fantasy consideration at the tight end position. A college and early NFL career quarterback, Thomas has found his way into the fantasy conversation this season. Tight end is always a crapshoot outside the top two or three, and Thomas is coming off a career high 66 yards last week against the Lions. The Bengals have been loose against the position giving up the 3rd most yards and touchdowns. Thomasís 52 targets put him just outside the top-10 so there is enough volume coming his to warrant a spot start this week. Beggars canít be choosers!

Grab some Pine

D.J. Chark vs PIT

The move to 6th round rookie Jake Luton has had mixed results for Chark. After a monster 7-146-1 line against Houston, Chark busted last week against the Packers who were without their stud cover corner Jaire Alexander. Pittsburgh has let lesser teams hang around too long several times this season, but should make life a nightmare for Luton and this offense. The Steelers are attackable through the air, so Chark is by no means a sit candidate, but he's a good bet to underperform. Keep that in mind when selecting your lineups.

Robert Woods @ TB

The Rams offense has become a sort of WRBC (thatís wide receiver by committee) lately, as the tight ends, and now Josh Reyonlds have encroached on Woodsís target share. Woods was largely left out of the fun last week against Seattle, and his yardage totals are way down over last year. The lack of downfield targets and the fact that Goff could struggle without their All-Pro left tackle Andrew Whitworth has the arrow trending down for Woods.

Marvin Jones @ CAR

Yeah, I don’t blame you for barking at your screen about this one, as Jones has been a stud since Kenny Golladay went down three weeks ago. But there are some key takeaways here if you look a bit closer. First, it looks like Golladay will be back this week, and prior to stepping in for him, Jones was a droppable player in most 12-team leagues. And yes, the 8 receptions last week were nice, but the prior two games he had a total of 6, and relied on touchdowns to buoy his final fantasy value. The return of Golladay, and the injury to Stafford’s throwing thumb would seriously have me considering sending Jones back to the bench if I had the option.
