Wide receiver is an incredibly fickle position filled with booms/busts nearly every week. To assist owners in their quest to get steady production out of their WR3, here's a trio of names to roll the dice on in Week 11:
DeAndre Hopkins, Hou – Hitting a bit of a wall midseason, Hopkins has done little since his breakout performance against Tennessee Week 2. Still, with a white-hot rookie QB under center, a crumbling defense, battered ground game and favorable matchup he could easily log double-digit looks in Week 11. Houston's opponent, Oakland, has conceded the fifth-most fantasy points to wideouts since Week 6. Fearless Forecast: 5-75-1.
Tim Wright, TB – Prior to Week 10, the rookie from Rutgers accounted for nine receptions, 106 yards and two touchdowns in his previous two contests. Then he vanished. Last week against a Dolphins defense that's had its issues against tight ends, he registered just one target, catching a 14-yard pass. Expect a bounce back in Week 11. The Atlanta Falcons have surrendered the third-most touchdowns to tight ends this season and, overall, have struggled mightily in downfield coverage. Roughly 4-6 receptions for 60-70 yards and a score is attainable for the Buc.
Mike Brown, Jax – Elevated into the No. 2 role two weeks ago when Justin Blackmon was suspended indefinitely by the league, Brown has done little with the opportunity. But that may soon change. With Patrick Peterson slated to drape Cecil Shorts, he could win man one-on-one clashes with embattled corner Jerraud Powers. The DB has allowed a 99.5 QB rating and 61.0 catch percentage to his assignments this year. A back-end WR3 tally in 12-team leagues is certainly possible.
