Week 4: Pickups of the Week
Looks like someone no longer has a case of the dropsies. After a disheartening Week 2, Dobson hauled in seven of his team-high 10 targets against the Bucs with one of the misses nearly turning into a touchdown. That's 20 targets in two weeks going into a game against an Atlanta pass defense that has allowed nearly 300 yards per outing. With Rob Gronkowski possibly back this week and Danny Amendola returning soon, Dobson's upside will drop soon enough. For now - and whenever Amendola goes down again - the rookie has low-end WR3 and Flex potential. Based on all the targets, he also has Tom Brady's trust, at least relative to the field. What's a little yelling between friends.Injury Status: Out -
Were you expecting Santonio Holmes in this spot? Considering the one-time Super Bowl hero caught the go-ahead 69-yard touchdown pass and finished with 154 yards and five receptions against the Bills, Holmes warrants a look. Same goes for Hill, who also topped the century mark thanks to a 51-yard score. When factoring in Hill's 6-foot-4 size, impressive speed and two straight weeks with potent stats, he's at the top of the NYJ-receivers-worth-owning list. The former Georgia Tech star is worth owning as a bye week fill in starting with his Week 4 matchup against the Titans.MyFantasyLeague availability: 30%
In his first game back from a torn ACL suffered last season, Heath Miller caught three passes for 35 yards with limited snaps against the Bears. More importantly, the veteran suffered no setbacks and provided his usual blocking help to the ground game. With so many issues for the 0-3 Steelers, having a reliable option available helps all, including his quarterback. Not a weekly starter, but Miller should haul in enough passes from Ben Roethlisberger for occasional use, making a decent TE2 in most formats. Though risky until he receives a full workload, Miller faces a Minnesota defense that has surrendered six touchdowns to tight ends in three games.
