The Shot Caller's Report - Wk 11 Wide Receivers

Grab a Helmet

D.J. Moore @ DET

Since his Week 5 eruption against the Commanders, Moore has just about disappeared from fantasy relevancy. With Fields getting hurt in Week 6 and the Bears mothballing the offense because of a raw rookie QB, Moore has been a fantasy anchor. Luckily Fields looks to be back this week, so let’s allow Moore owners to rejoice. The Lions have struggled to rush the passer at times, and this has left their secondary susceptible to big plays. Look for Moore to hit a deep shot in a game where Chicago should be in a near constant negative game script.

TE Trey McBride @ HOU

Since Zach Ertz went on the IR, McBride the 2022 2nd round pick has vaulted himself into the top-10 at the position. In the three games sans Ertz, McBride has been Arizona’s most consistent offensive weapon totaling 21 receptions for 248 yards and a score. His size and athleticism make him tough to cover, and the switch to Kyler Murray just raises his upside. He’s a must start option at the position until Ertz returns.

Terry McLaurin

Terry McLaurin vs NYG

Despite his quarterback leading the NFL in pass attempts, McLaurin has only seen the 15th most targets among receivers, and has yet to crack the century mark in yardage. Thankfully the woeful Giants come to town this week, and the passing game should benefit. McLaurin’s 90 yards against NY in Week 7 represents his season high, and something he should repeat in Week 11.

Grab Some Pine

Adam Thielen vs DAL

After being one of the biggest fantasy surprises of the season through Week 8, Thielen has come back down from his trip in the clouds the last two weeks. Bryce Young has struggled to complete anything past 10 yards, and Thielen has an empty 11 receptions and 71 yards to show for it. In PPR leagues you can still probably roll him out as a listless WR3, but that’s about the best you can hope for.

Amari Cooper vs PIT

With Watson done for the season, and rookie Dorian Thompson-Robinson set to take over as the starter, Cooper’s fantasy value is sure to tank. Several of Cooper’s best games have come with Watson at the helm taking shots downfield, but with a raw rookie under center, and an elite defense, look for Cleveland to play conservative against their division rivals.

Quentin Johnston @ GB

Sure, he scored his first NFL touchdown last week against the Lions, but in a game that saw his snap percentage at 85%, his offense put up 38 points and his quarterback throw for 323 yards, the 1st round rookie could only manage a 4-34-1 line on four targets. With Keenen Allen and Austin Ekeler soaking up the majority of the short and medium range targets, there just isn’t room for a rookie who hasn’t expanded his route tree yet.
