Michael Thomas In Flex Range For PPR Leagues

Friday, September 29, 9:22 AM

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas has remained consistent throughout his career. While his numbers have fallen since his prime years, he is still garnering a 25.7% target share on the season with an average of 8.7 targets per game. That volume alone is enough to warrant a fantasy start. The concern is his efficiency with that volume, as his average yards per reception is at a career-low 9.2. PPR leagues reward receptions, making Thomas a valuable flex option, but he has yet to score a touchdown in 2023 and has not yet cleared 61 receiving yards in a game. Start him in PPR leagues with a safe floor, but know that his upside is limited.

Nico Collins Looking To Bounce Back In Week 4

Saturday, September 30, 12:18 PM

Houston Texans wide receiver Nico Collins will look to bounce back at home in Week 4 against the Pittsburgh Steelers following a down week. Collins was non-existent on offense in Week 3, catching just two passes for 34 yards. The 24-year-old wideout started the season with back-to-back double-digit PPR fantasy performances, and that is certainly possible to happen again for the former Michigan star in Week 4. Pittsburgh has allowed the fifth most fantasy points to wide receivers in the first three weeks, which boosts Collins's fantasy value. He'll be a strong flex option this weekend.
