The Shot Caller's Report - Wk 17 Wide Receivers

Robert Tonyan

Grab a Helmet

Robert Tonyan @ CHI

Tonyan has been a revelation for this Green Bay offense this season. Heís given Rodgers a reliable mid-range threat that can take advantage of the coverage that rolls toward Davante Adams. As evidenced by his 10 touchdown receptions (only 1 behind Kelce for most among tight ends) Tonyan has tremendous weekly scoring potential. Chicago has been one of the worst defenses in the NFL against the position, and the Packers are motivated to do everything they can to win the #1 overall seed in the NFC.

CeeDee Lamb @ NYG

Lamb literally had a career day (8-124) the last time these two teams met in Week 5. That game was the last Dallas would play with Dak behind center, and itís taken them a bulk of the season to finally right the ship. With Andy Dalton looking more comfortable, and Cooper and Gallup threats on the outside, Lamb should find room to operate against New Yorkís slot corners and safeties. Heís been up and down most of the year, but Lamb is always a big play waiting to happen.

Logan Thomas @ PHI

A double tight end special to close the year here at the SCR! Thomas, the converted quarterback, leads all NFC tight ends with 69 receptions, and has somehow become the lone playmaker in the Washington passing game in the final month of the season. He has 20 receptions on 27 targets over the last two games, and with Terry McLaurin set to miss Week 17, Thomas is again ready to dominate looks.

Rams Receivers vs ARI

Goff is out with a broken thumb, Kupp is on the Covid list, and free agent John Wolford (yes, THE John Wolford of CFL fame) is set to throw his first official pass in the NFL. For all his limitations, Goff still kept the Rams pass catchers fed and healthy for the most part, so itís anyone's guess exactly how McVay is going to game plan this week without him. While interesting to watch, I donít want my fantasy success riding with anyone in this offense right now.

Tee Higgins vs BAL

Higgins has been everything the Bengals hoped for when they made him the 1st pick in the 2nd round of the 2020 draft. As expected his numbers took a huge hit after Joe Burrow was lost for the season, but Higgins has seen a consistent number of looks all year and found ways to still produce. Serving as the defacto #1 receiver with Tyler Boyd out, Higgins went for 99 yards and a score last week against the Texans. But a hungry and determined Ravenís team is not what you want. The Bengals were stifled in their earlier meeting this year, and will be hard pressed to build off their two-game winning streak.

Stefon Diggs vs MIA

Arguably the best move made by any team this past offseason, Diggs has provided this Buffalo offense with a spark that has them on the verge of completing a truly special season, and it’s why I don’t expect him to see more than a handful of snaps this week against Miami. I’m sure Buffalo wants to keep their momentum going as they prepare for the playoffs, but with Cole Beasley already out multiple weeks, it makes no sense to risk any of the other offensive stars in a game that means little in the standings.
