Oof! Even the top WR still has his bad days. The backup QB just doesn’t have the confidence to air it out downfield. Antonio Brown manages only one 35-yard reception. Next time, start the receiver with a solid quarterback throwing to them.
Maybe your tight end slot can be an unexpected advantage against your opponent’s lesser tight end. You’ve got quite the choice, however. Travis Kelce has been frequently topping 100 yards receiving, and is always a threat to score. However, Tyler Kroft on Cincinnati could be a sneaky play: The Bengals’ WR core is decimated by injury, and Kroft could be a 10-target safety blanket for Andy Dalton.
