Wilson has huge Week 3 game
It was a high scoring week around the league with eight teams scoring 30 or more points. This was good news for fantasy owners, seeing lots of fantasy points across the board.
Passing games were off the charts this week. There were ten quarterback that hit the 300-yard mark with one quarterback, Russell Wilson, topping 400 yards. And many of the quarterbacks that posted big numbers weren’t the household names. Guys like Daniel Jones and Jacoby Brissett were positive plays for all the fantasy teams that took a chance on them this week.
There were not a ton of huge receiving yard numbers despite all the passing success, but three receivers hit double-digit fantasy receptions. Those double-digit reception games produce some big fantasy numbers. And there were eight receivers that hit the 100-yard mark. Two tight ends hit the 100-yard mark as well with one of those guys getting double-digit receptions.
The running back spot was pretty quiet. We had just five running backs top 100 yards. And two of those players that hit the 100-yard mark were on the same team. The running back spot was pretty disappointing for many fantasy owners.
Below is a breakdown of all the games. . . . .
Jaguars 20, Titans 7
Fantasy Stud: D.J. Chark. Chark continued his hot start to the season, finding the end zone for the third straight game. He caught four passes for 76 yards and a score. Chark has touchdowns every game and at least four receptions all three games. He is becoming the go-to target in this offense. Chark had a strong training camp and preseason, and is clearly carrying that over to the regular season.
Fantasy Dud: Marcus Mariota. Mariota struggled in this contest. He did hit 300-passing yards but failed to score a touchdown in the game. He missed on a lot of throws and struggled throughout the game. Mariota was 23-of-40 for 304 yards without a score or interception. He had a three-touchdown game to open the season but has just one score his last two games. There is already talk about Mariota heading to the bench. He will need to pick up his play in a hurry.
Game Notes: Leonard Fournette finished with numbers that looked alright in the end but was really held in check until a late 69-yard run. He had 15 carries for 66 yards in the game, so he had 14 carries for negative three yards before his long run in the fourth quarter.
Rookie Gardner Minshew looked great in his first NFL start, going 20-of-30 for 204 yards and two touchdowns without a turnover against a good Titans defense. Minshew sure looked the part of an NFL starting quarterback.
Bills 21, Bengals 17
Fantasy Stud: Frank Gore. Gore wasn’t huge but more than solid in a starting role for the Bills. He ran 14 times for 76 yards and a touchdown, averaging 5.4 yards per carry. He also caught two passes for 13 yards, giving him 89 total yards. Gore has at least 16 fantasy points each of the last two games. He just keeps getting it done, showing few signs of slowing down. His numbers aren’t off the charts but consistent.
Fantasy Dud: John Ross. Ross finally came back down to earth, catching two passes for just 22 yards. He also lost a fumble in the game, frustrating fantasy owners even more. Ross had back-to-back 100-yard games to open the season but had little room to run in this one. You still have to like his weekly upside in the right matchup but this game showed he isn’t an automatic start just yet.
Game Notes: Joe Mixon showed some signs of life, rushing 15 times for 61 yards. He also had two receptions for 34 yards and a touchdown, finishing with 95 total yards. The touchdown was his first of the season.
Dawson Knox had his best game as a pro, scoring a touchdown for the first time in his career. He had three receptions for 67 yards and a score. Knox has four targets each of the last two games.
Cowboys 31, Dolphins 6
Fantasy Stud: Amari Cooper. Cooper continued his hot start to the season, catching six passes for 88 yards and two touchdowns. Cooper has touchdowns every game this season and two games with 85-plus yards. He is well on his way to a career best season, his first full season with the Cowboys.
Fantasy Dud: Randall Cobb. Cobb was pretty quiet in a game with a lot of offense. He had two receptions for 23 yards. Cobb had five receptions last week but has few than 25 yards each of his last two games. He is a hard guy to trust - even with an expanded role in the offense because of injury. If he isn’t going to have a big game in this one, don’t expect great things from him in other matchups going forward.
Game Notes: The Cowboys had two 100-yard rushers in the game. Ezekiel Elliott ran 19 times for 125 yards. And backup Tony Pollard had 13 carries for 103 yards and a touchdown. The rushing game showed their huge potential in this game.
Josh Rosen wasn’t terrible in his first start of the year, but didn’t make a lot of plays either. He was 18-of-39 for 200 yards without a touchdown or a turnover. He should get another start next week despite not finding the end zone.
Packers 27, Broncos 16
Fantasy Stud: Phillip Lindsay. Lindsay enjoyed his best game of the season. He ran 21 times for 81 yards and two touchdowns. He also had four receptions for 49 yards, giving him 130 total yards in the game. The touchdowns were his first of the season. Lindsay has at least double-digit points all three games this year, though. He is getting plenty of weekly touches in this offense.
Fantasy Dud: Emmanuel Sanders. Sanders didn’t follow his huge game with a good showing. He struggled, catching just two passes for 10 yards. Sanders was targeted just four games. He had at least 85 yards each of his first two games before this dud of a showing. Sanders still has weekly promise in this offense but the Broncos offense isn’t top notch, so he could be erratic along the way.
Game Notes: Marquez Valdes-Scantling led the Packers in receiving. He had six receptions for 99 yards and a touchdown. The score was his first of the year and this was his first game with more than 55 yards.
Jamaal Williams had the most success running the ball for the Packers. He ran 12 times for 59 yards. Aaron Jones had 10 carries for just 19 yards but scored two touchdowns. Jones has touchdowns two straight games.
Colts 27, Falcons 24
Fantasy Stud: Julio Jones. Jones had his usual huge game. He had eight receptions for 128 yards and a touchdown. Jones has two straight 100-yard games and scores in all three games this season. He is having another huge season and making a charge for top fantasy receiver in the game once again.
Fantasy Dud: Calvin Ridley. Ridley was the forgotten man offensively in this one, catching just a pass for six yards. This was his first game of the year, failing to hit 60 yards for the first time. Ridley also had just one target in the game. He should be fine moving forward but this game was a big disappointment for all his fantasy owners.
Game Notes: Marlon Mack was able to play with his calf injury and looked pretty good. He had 16 carries for 74 yards and a touchdown. He also caught two passes for 14 yards. He should be good to use going forward. The calf injury wasn’t a huge factor.
Jacoby Brissett looked really good, having his best start of the season. Brissett was 28-of-37 for 310 yards and two touchdowns without an interception. It was an impressive showing for Brissett.
Chiefs 33, Ravens 28
Fantasy Stud: Patrick Mahomes. Mahomes had another one of his huge games. He was 27-of-37 for 374 yards and three touchdowns without a turnover. The conditions weren’t great and he played a good defense, but that doesn’t seem to ever bother Mahomes. He just gets it done every week. Mahomes has at last 370-passing yards and three touchdowns every game this season. He remains the best fantasy quarterback in the game.
Fantasy Dud: Marquise Brown. There were a lot of high hopes for Brown in this matchup, but he didn’t help many fantasy teams. Brown had just two receptions for 49 yards. This was his worst showing of the season, getting fewer than 85 yards for the first time. The good news was he was targeted nine times in the game, getting a ton of work. Brown got his work but just didn’t connect.
Game Notes: Mark Ingram had a huge game, rushing 16 times for 103 yards and three touchdowns. This was his second multiple touchdown game of the season.
Lamar Jackson failed to score a passing touchdown for the first time this year. The good news is he did run in a score, so his game wasn’t a total bust. He threw for 267 yards and ran for 46 yards and a touchdown.
Vikings 34, Raiders 14
Fantasy Stud: Darren Waller. Waller didn’t score a touchdown but that didn’t matter to his fantasy owners. Waller had 13 receptions for 134 yards. He also ran for seven yards, giving him 141 total yards. Waller has at least six receptions and 60 yards every game this year. He is having a monster season and putting himself in the class of the elite tight ends in the game.
Fantasy Dud: Stefon Diggs. Diggs had just three receptions for 15 yards. Diggs has less than 50 yards every game this year. He is really off to a poor start in the Vikings new run-heavy offense. Diggs can turn it around but it could be more up and down games for him the rest of the way. Things are not trending up for Diggs right now.
Game Notes: Dalvin Cook hit the 100-yard mark once again, rushing 16 times for 110 yards and a touchdown. Cooks has touchdowns and 100-yard games every game this year.
Alexander Mattison scored his first NFL touchdown. He had a career high in rush attempts and yard as well. He ran 12 times for 58 yards and a score. Mattison has at least nine carries two of three games.
Patriots 30, Jets 14
Fantasy Stud: Rex Burkhead. Burkhead had an expanded workload with James White not at the game. He took advantage with a solid showing. He led the team in rushing, running 11 times for 47 yards. He also caught six passes for 22 yards. Bulkhead had 18.9 fantasy points in the game, giving him double-digit fantasy points two of three games. He is having a decent season in a reserve role for the Patriots.
Fantasy Dud: LeVeon Bell. The gameplan for the Patriots was to take Bell out of the game and it worked. Bell was really held in check despite having 22 total touches. Bell ran 18 times for 35 yards and caught four passes for 28 yards. It was not a good showing for Bell, especially if you consider his huge workload. Bell has 20-plus touches in every game but topped 100 total yards just once all year.
Game Notes: Luke Falk had his struggles in his first NFL start against one of the best teams in football. He was 12-of-22 for just 98 yards with an interception. Falk is not the answer at quarterback for the Jets, so hopefully Sam Darnold can get over his mono sooner than later.
Tom Brady had his second 300-yard game of the season. He was 28-of-42 for 306 yards and two touchdowns without a turnover. Brady has multiple touchdowns every game this year.
Lions 27, Eagles 24
Fantasy Stud: Marvin Jones. Jones finally got going for the Lions, catching six passes for 101 yards and a touchdown. Jones had less than 60 yards each of his first two games before this big game. He also had a season high nine targets in the game. Jones does have at least four receptions every game, which is encouraging.
Fantasy Dud: J.J. Arcega-Whiteside. The rookie receiver didn’t do much despite an expanded role in the offense. He had just a catch for 10 yards. You expected much better from Arcega-Whiteside in a favorable matchup in an expanded role. He is a guy fantasy teams need to avoid until he starts doing anything on the field.
Game Notes: Mile Sanders didn’t score a touchdown but had his best game as a pro. He led the team in rushing and receiving yards. He had 13 carries for 53 yards and caught two passes for 73 yards. He had 126 total yards.
Kerryon Johnson had 20 carries but managed just 36 yards. The good news is Johnson did score a touchdown in the game. The bad news is Johnson has failed to top 50-rushing yards in a game despite at least 12 carries every game.
Panthers 38, Cardinals 20
Fantasy Stud: Kyle Allen. Allen had a great first start of the season, taking over for the injured Cam Newton. He was 19-of-26 for 261 yards and four touchdowns without an interception. The Panthers will not rush Newton back to the lineup with Allen playing so well in this one. Expect Carolina to make sure Newton is 100 percent healthy before he gets back on the field. Allen looked really good in this start.
Fantasy Dud: Kyler Murray. Murray had his worst passing numbers as a pro. He didn’t even break 200-passing yards, throwing for 173 yards. He did have two passing touchdowns but also was intercepted two games. It was not a great showing for Murray. He will rebound but showed he has some growing to do to be a dependable weekly fantasy starter.
Game Notes: Greg Olsen continued his strong play, catching six passes for 75 yards and two touchdowns. Olsen has at least six receptions and 75 yards two straight games.
Christian Kirk had double-digit receptions for the first time in his career. He had 10 catches for 59 yards. Kirk is already up to 20 receptions on the season.
Giants 32, Bucs 31
Fantasy Stud: Daniel Jones. Jones had quite the rookie debut, leading his team to victory late in the game. He scored four total touchdowns. Jones was 23-of-36 for 336 yards and two touchdowns without an interception. He also showed well on the ground, rushing four times for 28 yards and two more scores. Jones did play a below average Bucs defense but it was a great showing none regardless. He gives this offense some real hope for the rest of the season.
Fantasy Dud: Chris Godwin. Godwin was not a big part of the offense despite the Bucs having all sorts of success throwing the ball. He had three catches for 40 yards. This was his first game without a score this year and first time he didn’t top 50 yards. Godwin is still on his way to a breakout season but isn’t a sure thing just yet for fantasy teams.
Game Notes: Saquon Barkley injured his ankle and was forced from the game. He was on crutches and in a boot on the sidelines. The early reports are he has suffered the dreaded high ankle sprain. He is going to miss some time with this one. Stay tuned.
Mike Evans put his slow start behind him in a big way, catching eight passes for 190 yards and three touchdowns. Evans did not have 100 yards coming into this game and was held out of the end zone his first two games.
Texans 27, Chargers 20
Fantasy Stud: Keenan Allen. Allen is making a real run at top fantasy receiver in the game. He had a huge, huge game, catching 13 passes for 183 yards and two touchdowns. Allen has scores two of three and at least eight receptions every game. He is having a remarkable start to the year. Hopefully, he can keep his current pace.
Fantasy Dud: Duke Johnson. Johnson was not much of a factor in the offense in Week 3. He ran just two times for two yards and caught two passes for 22 yards. Johnson had 19 total touches the first two games. His production has done downhill since Week 1, which is a concern going forward. The touches are dwindling for Johnson.
Game Notes: Jordan Akins was a big surprise at tight end, catching three passes for 73 yards and two touchdowns. He had just three receptions for 42 yards coming into the game. His role could be increasing going forward.
Deshaun Watson had his second three-touchdown game of the year. It was his first 300-yard game, though. He was 25-of-34 for 351 yards for three touchdowns without an interception.
49ers 24, Steelers 20
Fantasy Stud: Jeff Wilson. Wilson continues to get the goal-line work for the 49ers and is taking advantage of his chances. He scored two more touchdowns, rushing eight times for 18 yards and two scores. Wilson has four touchdowns his last two games. He is a touchdown dependent fantasy player but as long as he is scoring, it is tough to keep him out of the lineup.
Fantasy Dud: Jimmy Garoppolo. Garoppolo had three turnovers in this game. He was 23-of-32 for 277 yard and a touchdown with two interceptions and a lost fumble. It was not his best showing from a fantasy perspective. He did gain some yards, though, so not all was lost. He continues to be a spot play for fantasy teams.
Game Notes: Mason Rudolph had a decent first NFL start, going 14-of-27 for 174 yards and two touchdowns with an interception. Rudolph showed some poise on the road and good potential as the starter for the Steelers.
Diontae Johnson got the start at redeliver for the Steelers and scored his first NFL touchdown. He had three receptions for 52 yards and a touchdown. He should continue to start for the Steelers, especially after his solid showing.
Saints 33, Seahawks 27
Fantasy Stud: Russell Wilson. Wilson had just a huge game in defeat. He topped 400-passing yards and scored four total touchdowns (two passing and two rushing). Wilson was 32-of-50 for 406 yards and two touchdowns without an interception. He also ran seven times for 51 yards and two touchdowns. Wilson has two straight 300-yard games and multiple scores all three games this year. Wilson is off to another fantastic start and producing well for all his fantasy owners.
Fantasy Dud: Latavius Murray. Murray was the forgotten man in the offense this week. He ran just two times for two yards compared to 16 rushes for Alvin Kamara. Murray also didn’t catch a pass. It is becoming really hard to trust Murray after two straight games with fewer than 10-rushing yards. He also doesn’t have double-digit touches in any game this year.
Game Notes: Teddy Bridgewater looked much better under center in his first start of the year. He was 19-of-27 for 177 yards and two touchdowns without a turnover. He played well and led the team to a big road victory in a hostile environment.
Tyler Lockett had arguably the best game of his career. He had 11 receptions for 154 yards and a touchdown. Lockett has double-digit receptions two straight games after catching just a pass in Week 1.
Rams 20, Browns 13
Fantasy Stud: Cooper Kupp. Kupp continues to be the favorite target of Jared Goff in this Rams offense. He is getting a weekly workout. He had 11 receptions for 102 yards and two touchdowns. Kupp has two straight 100-yard games and been targeted double-digit times two of three games. He is getting plenty of targets and looks all the way back from his torn ACL last season.
Fantasy Dud: Baker Mayfield. Mayfield continues to not take quite the forward as expected. He was 18-of-36 for 195 yards and a touchdown with an interception. Mayfield has just a touchdown in all three games. He even has more interceptions (five) than touchdowns (three) for the season. He has time to get it going, but things don't look great for him right now. This offense just isn’t clicking.
Game Notes: Nick Chubb had his best showing of the young season. He ran 23 times for 96 yards and caught four passes for 35 yards, finishing with 131 total yards. He has at least 85 total yards all three games.
Toddy Gurley dominated carries in this one for the Rams. He had 14 rush attempts for 43 yards compared to three carries for seven yards for Malcolm Brown. Gurley did not catch a pass in the game, though, and has just four receptions for the season.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Alex Erickson finished with a game-high eight receptions (14 targets) for 137 yards in the loss to the Jaguars on Sunday. Though Tyler Boyd received an equal amount of looks from quarterback Andy Dalton, his five catches for 55 yards opened the door for increased production from Erickson on a day where nothing was going right. With A.J. Green (ankle) expected back within the next week or so, the sell-high window is wide open for the 26-year-old as this type of performance won't happen too often moving forward, if at all.
The San Francisco 49ers Defense continued its dominant run, shutting out the Washington Redskins in Week 7. Aided by a wet field, the Niners limited the Skins to 154 meaningless yards, collecting three sacks and recovering a fumble in the process. A driving force behind the teams undefeated start, San Franciscos defensive unit continues to take care of business and serve notice to the football community. Theyve evolved into a weekly must-start fantasy squad. The Carolina Panthers await in Week 8.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard finished with no yards on four attempts in addition to four yards off of two receptions against the Jaguars in Week 7. As the team's offensive woes continue, the veteran is having one of his worst seasons as a professional. As the Bengals continue to be plagued with a horrendous offensive line and a plethora of injuries, Bernard hasn't done much this season. He has little, if any, fantasy value at the moment, with that likely staying the same moving forward unless Joe Mixon loses his spot on the depth chart.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo completed 12 of 21 passes for 151 yards, no scores and an interception in Week 7 against the Washington Redskins. The Niners leaned on their defense and wet conditions to overmatch the Redskins in the 9-0 shutout. The nondescript performance from Garoppolo has become the norm, as hes managed the team to a sparkling 6-0 start to 2019. With the continued emphasis on the run game and Jimmy G yet to push the gas, hell remain a middling QB2 in Week 8 against the Carolina Panthers.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon rushed for just two yards on 10 attempts against the Jaguars on Sunday. While he was able to bring in a two-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Andy Dalton, it was a disappointing outing overall for those who were hoping for a turnaround in Week 7. With the Bengals unable to get anything going behind one of the worst offensive lines in the league, Mixon's outlook moving forward doesn't look promising, especially in Week 8 against the Rams Defense.
Neither San Francisco 49ers wide receivers Dante Pettis nor Marquise Goodwin caught a pass in Week 7 against the Washington Redskins. The two receivers garnered three total targets in a sloppy contest dominated by the Niners defense. After a week of fantasy buzz, Pettis will fall back with Goodwin in fantasy obsolescence as zero-floor WR5s in Week 8 against the Carolina Panthers.
San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle recorded 38 yards on three catches in Week 7 against the Washington Redskins. The Niners managed just 151 pass yards in a wet and sloppy contest, resulting in Kittles lowest production of 2019. His five targets still led the squad. The Niners return home in Week 8 to host the Carolina Panthers where Kittle will be a premium TE1 against a tough pass defense.
Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph caught 5-of-6 targets for 58 yards and a touchdown in Week 7. Rudolph connected with Kirk Cousins on a 15-yard score in the fourth quarter, Rudolph's first touchdown catch of the year. Adam Thielen (hamstring) left the game early, meaning guys like Rudolph, Olabisi Johnson, and Irv Smith Jr. were asked to step up in the passing attack. To their credit, they all put up solid performances. That being said, Rudolph remains an uninspiring low-volume option at tight end and should only be played as a touchdown-dependent TE2 in Week 8 against the Washington Redskins.
Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton wasn't able to get anything going against Jacksonville in Week 7. While the veteran was able to accumulate 276 yards and two total touchdowns on the day, the Jaguars Defense was relentless by recording interceptions on three-straight drives, with one of those picks being returned for a score. Dalton is having one of his worst seasons in the league, though he can't take all of the blame as the team has been plagued with injuries across the board. Things likely won't get any easier in Week 8 as the Bengals will look for their first win of the year against the newly revamped Rams Defense.
Los Angeles Rams tight end Gerald Everett caught four receptions for 50 yards and a touchdown against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 7. Everett was targeted a team-high 10 times in the game. He'll have a tough matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals next week. The Bengals have only allowed tight ends to grab 13 balls for 183 yards and no touchdowns in the last three weeks. Everett will be a low-end TE1 option.
The Los Angeles Rams Defense had a big day against the Atlanta Falcons with five sacks, two fumble recoveries, one that went for a touchdown, an interception and just 10 points allowed. They have upside next week against the Cincinnati Bengals and are a midrange start for Week 8.
Los Angeles Rams linebacker Dante Fowler had seven tackles (six solo), three sacks and a pass defense against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 7. His tackles and sacks were both team highs. Fowler is a fringe player to own in individual defensive player leagues, but this might put him over the hump and onto rosters.
Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs caught 7-of-8 targets for 142 scoreless yards in Week 7's win over the Detroit Lions. Adam Thielen (hamstring) leaving the game in the first quarter concentrated targets to Diggs, but the four receiving touchdowns went to Thielen, C.J. Ham, Kyle Rudolph, and Olabisi Johnson. Diggs got dragged down just before the goal-line on a 67-yard catch (set up by some beautiful play-action) late in the game. Diggs is back to seeing WR2-worthy targets and has exceeded 100 receiving yards in three of his last four games. Start him as a top-end WR2 in Week 8's Thursday night tilt against the Washington Redskins.
Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook tallied 25 carries for 142 yards and two touchdowns in Week 7's 42-30 win over the Detroit Lions. He also added one catch for seven yards. This was Cook's league-leading fifth 100-yard rushing game and he now has six touchdowns on the ground in what's becoming a breakout campaign for the third-year back out of Florida State. Cook has been absolutely dynamic all season and his ceiling is raised even higher with the form that Kirk Cousins and the play-action passing game is in. Cook is a surefire RB1 and will arguably be the top option at running back in Week 8 against the Washington Redskins.
Washington Redskins wide receiver Trey Quinn led the team in receiving yards on Sunday against the 49ers. This is a meaningless development, of course, because all that it means is he totaled more than 18 yards. Quinn turned in a familiar stat line with two receptions for 30 yards, while no one else on the team broke 20. He remains an outsider in the fantasy picture, as nothing he or the Redskins have done recently suggests he's poised to break through any time soon.
Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff bounced back with 268 passing yards and two touchdowns in a blowout of the Atlanta Falcons in Week 7. Goff was 22-for-37, didn't throw any picks and rushed for a touchdown as well. This comes after he threw for just 78 yards last week. He'll have a fabulous matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals next week, and he's a midrange QB1 option.
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley rushed 18 times for 41 yards in Week 7, but he caught a 13-yard touchdown pass to salvage the ineffective day on the ground. The good news is that was the most rushing attempts that he has had all season after missing last week with a quadriceps injury. Gurley will have a great matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals next week, but his spotty production limits him to a high-end RB2.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Brandin Cooks caught four balls for 59 yards in Week 7 against the Atlanta Falcons. Cooks was targeted seven times, which tied for third on the team. He'll have a tougher matchup next week against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals are among the better half of teams that have defended the receiver position the last three weeks. Cooks will be a high-end WR3 in Week 8.
Los Angeles Rams running back Darrell Henderson rushed 11 times for 31 yards in Week 7 and caught an eight-yard pass against the Atlanta Falcons. It was the most action he has seen in his rookie season, but he wasn't able to do much with it. Running back Malcolm Brown's (ankle) status next week will determine whether Henderson is working using as a flex against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp had six grabs for 50 yards in the Week 7 win over the Atlanta Falcons. The line was decent in point-per-reception leagues, but it was underwhelming considering the matchup. He was second on the team with eight targets. He'll face a tougher Cincinnati Bengals matchup next week, but he'll remain a low-end WR1.
