Treylon Burks A Deep League Option Only In Week 3

Thursday, September 21, 12:16 PM

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks has just seven targets through two games, catching five of them for 94 yards. He delivered a 70-yard chunk play in the win over the Los Angeles Chargers last week but still didn't deliver a spike week for fantasy football. Until his targets see a dramatic uptick, he's tough to trust in fantasy lineups. Fantasy managers in deep leagues might be forced into starting him at the flex spot, but he faces a worrisome matchup in Week 3. The Cleveland Browns allowed the second-fewest fantasy points to wideouts through the first two weeks of the season, and the Titans' passing offense is far from matchup-proof. Proceed with caution with Burks.

Jaxon Smith-Njigba Gets Six Targets In Week 2

Monday, September 18, 7:03 AM

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba caught five of his six targets for 34 yards in Sunday's win over the Detroit Lions. The rookie had some extra time in two receiver sets with DK Metcalf missing most of the first half due to injury. When Metcalf and Tyler Lockett are both healthy, though, Smith-Njigba will be relegated to three receiver sets. That playing time opportunity will be reduced if Seattle continues to utilize two and three tight end sets to shore up their battered and inexperienced offensive line, as they did in Week 2. Smith-Njigba should remain on fantasy benches until he is played more frequently.
