High: Deandre Hopkins ($7900)
After being suspended for the first six weeks of the season for a failed drug test, Hopkins has proven that he’s a dominant receiver, with or without steroids. In just two games, Hopkins already has 22 catches (on 27 targets) for 262 yards and a touchdown. When available, Hopkins has long been one of the very best receivers in football, yet is just the sixth most expensive option this week.
Middle: Terry McLaurin ($5900)
McLaurin and Taylor Heinicke have a good thing going. Last year, McLaurin was targeted 132 times, the 15th most of any player in the NFL. And in Heinicke’s two starts this year, McLaurin once again looks like a top receiver, averaging nearly 19 fantasy points over that stretch. Even more enticing, the Vikings have a flammable secondary, surrendering 275.6 passing yards per game.
Value: Allen Robinson ($5000)
He’s back, kinda. After a dreadful start to the season, Robinson finally seems comfortable in LA, turning in back to back solid performances over the last two weeks and averaging 13.8 fantasy points during that span. With Cooper Kupp gimpy and potentially unavailable for Sunday’s tilt against the Buccaneers, Robinson could hoover up enough targets to return value even against Tampa’s stout defense.
