1. Tyreek Hill (Chiefs) vs. Falcons

  • 2020 stats: 83 Rec, 1211 Yds, 15 TDs

The wide receiver is always a big-play threat, and against a Falcons defense that gives up just that, Hill should continue his great season. 

2. Davante Adams (Packers) vs. Titans

  • 2020 stats: 98 Rec, 1186 Yds, 14 TDs

It was a quiet passing night for Green Bay last week and it acted as an outlier. The Packers will need to do more on offense against the Titans, meaning Adams will have a higher output. 

3. A.J. Brown (Titans) at Packers

  • 2020 stats: 56 Rec, 881 Yds, 10 TDs

Brown getting into the endzone just seems like a given most weeks. With Tannehill playing well and Tennessee set for a potential shootout in Green Bay, Brown has a good chance to once against score a touchdown. 

4. DeAndre Hopkins (Cardinals) vs. 49ers

  • 2020 stats: 103 rec, 1324 Yds, 6 TDs

Hopkins is having a strong finish to the season and there's no reason to believe that changes. Arizona is fighting for the playoffs, a time when it's best to rely on your studs. 


5. Calvin Ridley (Falcons) at Chiefs

  • 2020 stats: 77 rec, 1192 Yds, 9 TDs

No disrespect to Julio Jones, but it feels as if the torch may have been passed in Atlanta. Ridley will be the No. 1 for years to come, and that is the case in 2020. In a game where Atlanta is going to need to somehow keep up with the Chiefs, Ridley will have a high volume performance. 

6. Stefon Diggs (Bills) at Patriots

  • 2020 stats: 111 rec, 1314 Yds, 5 TDs

With Gilmore out, New England doesn't have much to slow down Diggs. His incredible year should continue when you need him most. 

7. Allen Robinson (Bears) at Jaguars

  • 2020 stats: 90 Rec, 1110 Yds, 6 TDs

Robinson has a great matchup this week and the Bears offense has finally found some consistency. It also helps that he's going against his former team, something that always adds a little extra juice. 

8. Mike Evans (Buccaneers) at Lions

  • 2020 stats: 57 rec, 779 Yds, 11 TDs

It was a strong game for Evans a week ago and the matchup is just as phenomenal this week. Let's just hope Tampa Bay doesn't flop. 

9. Justin Jefferson (Vikings) at Saints

  • 2020 stats: 73 rec, 1182 Yds, 7 TDs

The Saints provide a tough matchup, but that shouldn't stop you from playing Jefferson. He's become a legit WR1 and that makes him a high-end play every week. 

10. DK Metcalf (Seahawks) vs. Rams

  • 2020 stats: 74 rec, 1223 Yds, 10 TDs

Metcalf didn't do much against Jalen Ramsey the first time, so there's reason for skepticism. Still, if he's healthy, the upside for one big play could be all you need to win your championship. 

11. Adam Thielen (Vikings) at Saints

  • 2020 stats: 62 rec, 771 Yds, 12 TDs

12. Brandon Aiyuk (49ers) at Cardinals

  • 2020 stats: 59 rec, 733 Yds, 5 TDs

13. Robert Woods (Rams) at Seahawks

  • 2020 stats: 82 rec, 852 Yds, 6 TDs

14. Jarvis Landry (Browns) at Jets

  • 2020 stats: 67 rec, 789 Yds, 3 TDs

15. D.J. Moore (Panthers) at Washington Football Team

  • 2020 stats: 56 Rec, 1055 Yds, 4 TDs

16. Chris Godwin (Buccaneers) at Lions

  • 2020 stats: 55 rec, 623 Yds, 4 TDs

17. Amari Cooper (Cowboys) vs. Eagles

  • 2020 stats: 82 rec, 952 Yds, 5 TDs

18. Corey Davis (Titans) at Packers

  • 2020 stats: 60 Rec, 945 Yds, 5 TDs

19. Marvin Jones Jr. (Lions) vs. Buccaneers

  • 2020 stats: 65 rec, 779 Yds, 7 TDs

20. Cooper Kupp (Rams) at Seahawks

  • 2020 stats: 84 rec, 908 Yds, 3 TDs
