NFL Week 15 – Wide Receiver Sit/Start Report

Despite a questionable amount of targets, Ginn is racking up the yards and touchdowns

Despite a questionable amount of targets, Ginn is racking up the yards and touchdowns

Start – Ted Ginn:  Ginn has been peaking at the right time for the Carolina Panthers. Last week, he had limited opportunities, but made the most of his two receptions for one hundred and twenty yards and two touchdowns. Ginn has a very high upside, but comes with a high degree of risk because his targets are extremely limited. This week the Panthers play the New York Giants who sport a porous pass defense that is ranked dead last. Tis the season to be jolly and fantasy owners should start Ginn with a promising holiday outlook.

Start – Kamar Aiken:  Despite the Ravens loss last week, Kamar Aiken had five receptions for ninety yards against the Seahawks Legion of Boom. Jimmy Clausen hasn’t hurt Aiken’s prospects and should make an impact against the Kansas City Chiefs whose defense has allowed the third most fantasy points per game to opposing receivers so far this season. Fantasy owners can expect Aiken to perform at a high level, make things happen for this team and be a strong second option at wide receiver.

Start – Jarvis Landry:  Landry had saw stunning “18” targets during the Dolphins Monday night matchup against the Giants. He had 11 receptions for ninety nine yards against the Giants making him a PPR Beast. Despite not seeing the end zone and losing, he has been target more in the offense and remains the number one option at receiver for the Miami Dolphins. Miami will be on the road this week to face the San Diego Chargers whose defense ranks 27th in the league in points allowed per game. Fantasy owners should start Landry and expect him to have a big game with explosive plays against another weak secondary.

Sit – Brandon LaFell:  LaFell has been a dismal fantasy failure and has NOT made an impact since his return.  His numbers have been absolutely horrible as he has morphed into a professional pass DROPPER. The only thing he might be able to catch is a cold. Fantasy owners have a slew of better options sitting out there to grab. Even if he were to break out this week, he is still an unreliable fantasy option.
