The Shot Caller's Report - Wk 11 Wide Receivers

QBs | RBs | WRs

Grab a Helmet

Rashod Bateman @ CHI

With 16 targets over his last two games, and 28 over his first four NFL games, Rashod Bateman is a clear part of this offense. He led all Baltimore receivers with 80 yards last week, and should benefit greatly from the attention that Mark Andrews and Hollywood Brown will command this week against Chicago. Batemanís elite route running should help Jackson get rid of the ball and avoid the pressure heíll undoubtedly face against a desperate Bears defense.

Darnell Mooney

Darnell Mooney vs BAL

The guy beginning to make some magic with rookie QB Justin Fields is not the receiver many assumed. The speedy, diminutive Mooney has caught the eye of Fields and has become the most trusted receiver in this offense. The Baltimore secondary looked downright silly against Miami last week, and has had trouble controlling secondary receivers. With Robinson still commanding attention, I think Mooney gets deep a few times and makes for a sneaky receiver play in standard leagues.

D.J. Moore vs WAS

With ticket sales skyrocketing, and a big win over the Cardinals, Cam fever is back in Carolina. Now Iím not going to presume this lovefest will last, but Iím willing to catch lightning in a bottle. D.J. Moore has been a victim of his quarterback play this season, but remains supremely talented. Newtonís return JUST might be what Moore needs to get back into the WR2 conversation, at least until reality sets in. Letís just enjoy the moment shall we.

Mike Williams vs PIT

It was great while it lasted (and it was great) but after spending the better part of the early season vying with Cooper Kupp for king of the pass catchers, Williams has cratered back to earth with 10 scoreless receptions over his last 4 games. His coach claims his knee has nothing to do with it, but this offense has completely lost the ability to connect on the deep ball. Perhaps Herbert and Williams are getting the Cover-2 treatment, leading to more underneath opportunities for Keenan Allen. Injury or scheme is holding Williams down, and it might be time to consider options with a higher ceiling.

Jaguars WR vs SF

When a converted defensive back has become your biggest weapon in the passing game itís time to reevaluate things. Jamal Agnew is playing the role that Coach Meyer envisioned for Travis Etienne, but thatís been to the detriment of guys like Laviska Shenault and Marvin Jones. The actual receivers on this team have dropped to 3rd or 4th in the pecking order no one on this offense can be fully trusted, especially with a rookie quarterback still learning the ropes.

T.J. Hockenson @ CLE

It’s incredibly hard for tight ends to be the first options in passing games, only because they can be taken away so easily by double teams. After a hot start defenses have realized that TJ is the one and only threat in the secondary, and have adjusted accordingly. He was blanked entirely last week on only 1 target (in a game that went a FULL 70 minutes) and hasn’t found the endzone since Week 2. I know the tight end position is nearly fallow, but Hockenson is no longer a must start.
