Wide Receivers

CIN: A.J. Green — Last week vs. MIA: 10 receptions, 173 yards, TD

Green went off on primetime against the Dolphins. He set the tone early with a huge 51-yard catch, then capped off the drive with a seven-yard touchdown. With Tyler Eifert doubtful to play Sunday, Green remains the biggest weapon by a long shot in this Cincinnati passing attack. Green’s always a WR1 and is on pace for 128 receptions, 1,872 yards, and eight touchdowns at season’s end.

DAL: Terrence Williams — Last week at SF: 4 receptions, 44 yards, TD

Williams is a speedy deep threat that has the potential to stretch the field. Dez Bryant is likely out this week, so you should use Williams in the flex in deep leagues. He had a season-high six targets last week against the Niners.

DAL: Cole Beasley — Last week at SF: 3 receptions, 66 yards 

Beasley leads Dallas with 23 receptions this season. Against the Niners, he put the game away with a 47-yard catch and run. Beasley will face cornerback Josh Shaw, who has been fantastic as a slot corner this season.

Tight Ends

CIN: C.J. Uzomah — Last week vs. MIA: 4 receptions, 45 yards

Eifert is likely out, so Uzomah will still get his targets. Hopefully, he can finally convert a red zone opportunity into a touchdown. Until then, not a good fantasy play.

Next: No Eifert

DAL: Jason Witten — Last week at SF: 7 receptions, 47 yards

Witten is tied with Beasley for the team-high in targets with 29. The 34-year-old workhouse will always be reliable, especially for a young quarterback. Witten has only managed one touchdown in his last 19 games.
