It doesn’t matter if you are playing seasonal fantasy football or setting up lineups for DFS contests, opportunity is everything. At the NFL level, everyone has talent. Yes, everyone. They wouldn’t be in the league if they didn’t. But not everyone gets a chance to showcase that talent, so when they do, you need to take notice.
The simple fact of this game is the more a player touches the ball, the greater the opportunity to score points. So, though you may not think much of him from a reality standpoint, he can be a superstar in fantasy so long as he is given the opportunity.
When the Buccaneers were forced to limit Mike Evans’ Week 1 downfield work due to a hamstring injury, Tom Brady turned to second-year wideout Scotty Miller as the Saints coverage focused on Chris Godwin. Miller ended up with five catches on six targets for 73 yards and drew raves for his performance, as analysts cited the tremendous chemistry he and Brady displayed in the preseason.
This week, Evans remained limited in practice and Godwin landed in the league’s concussion protocol. Evans seems likely to play again, but Godwin was called “doubtful” by coach Bruce Arians after a limited practice Friday. With Godwin likely out and Evans possibly limited, Miller steps up once again and should prove to be a solid asset against a weak Panthers secondary.
In Tennessee, star wideout A.J. Brown suffered a deep bone-bruise in his knee and has been ruled out. Though that should shift Corey Davis, who is battling his own hamstring issue, into the lead role, slot receiver Adam Humphries should see a significant increase in targets. The Titans are a run-first offense, but Ryan Tannehill is going to have to jell with his receivers or watch the defense stack the box excessively. Humphries is a strong possession guy who helps move the chains, so in a PPR format, he should score well this week.
Monitor the injuries heading into this week. They are abundant. But that just means some of the lesser-known players will be afforded the opportunity to shine for your fantasy teams.
