DeAndre Hopkins A Risky Week 4 Option

Thursday, September 28, 1:15 PM

Tennessee Titans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins has hauled in 14 of his 25 targets for 153 yards in his first three games with the organization. The 31-year-old still looks like he has plenty of ability and is No. 11 in the NFL in target share (30.9%), but the Tennessee offense is holding him back. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill has been sacked 13 times (second-most) and has been under pressure often. Ultimately, the Tennessee passing attack looks like one of the worst in the NFL, meaning Hopkins could be at risk of posting duds every week. His overall target volume makes him an interesting fantasy option against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 4, but he's far from bust-proof -- as we've seen over the last two weeks. Hopkins practiced in full early in the week, but he could still carry an injury designation come Friday.

Jaylen Waddle Cleared To Play In Week 4

Friday, September 29, 12:59 PM

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (concussion) has been taken off the final Week 4 injury report on Friday and will play on Sunday against the division-rival Buffalo Bills. Waddle suffered a concussion in Week 2 and was forced to sit out of the 70-20 victory over the Denver Broncos last Sunday. The 24-year-old third-year wideout returns to face the toughest defense the Dolphins have encountered this year and it's on the road, but Waddle is a must-start WR2 for fantasy managers when he's active. In his two games played, he has eight catches on 11 targets for 164 yards. Waddle will be looking to find the end zone for the first time in 2023 in a big divisional showdown in Buffalo.
