Christian Kirk Produces 89 Yards In Victory Over Texans

Sunday, November 26, 8:17 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Christian Kirk hauled in four passes for 89 yards in a 24-21 win over Houston. The former Cardinal was second on the team in targets with seven, actually drawing more attention than his running mate Calvin Ridley, who had the higher-scoring fantasy day. Kirk's performance would have looked much better if he had been able to cross the goal line on a beautiful deep ball by quarterback Trevor Lawrence at the very end of the half, but the speedy receiver was pushed out at the one. Nonetheless, Kirk is still one of, if not the top pass-catching option for Lawrence who has thrown for 626 yards the past few weeks. Next up is a home matchup vs the reeling Cincinnati Bengals.

DK Metcalf Has Tough Matchup In Week 13

Thursday, November 30, 2:19 AM

Wide receiver DK Metcalf was targeted nine times in the Seattle Seahawks' loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, those looks resulted in just three catches for 32 yards in Week 12. The Seahawks face another tough defense in a Thursday night game when they head to Dallas to play the Cowboys to kick off Week 13 action. Metcalf figures to spend a lot of time opposite defensive back DaRon Bland, who on Thanksgiving recorded his fifth pick-six of the year, setting a new NFL single-season record. Metcalf had back-to-back 90-yard games as recently as Weeks 10 and 11, though outside of those games, there has been little to celebrate for those rostering him. Given the matchup, fantasy owners cannot expect a turnaround on Thursday and should adjust rosters in anticipation of a WR3/4 performance from Metcalf in Week 13.
