With the increasing popularity of PPR leagues, the receivers, whether they’re big play receivers or slot receivers racking up the receptions, many successful teams depend on as many as three or four receivers. Which ones will score fantasy points, which ones won’t? We’ll clear up some of those options for you. Right now, let’s see which ones do NOT pass the grade for Week 9.
Curtis Samuel, Carolina Panthers at Kansas City Chiefs
With the addition of Robby Anderson, the receiver who got pushed aside was Samuel. After a few weeks of the season gone by, it’s clear that Anderson has proved his worth and alternates with D.J. Moore as the team’s WR1. So where does that leave Samuel in Week 9, who has burst onto the scene with three touchdowns in the last two games? A far distant third receiver. Christian McCaffrey is back, meaning he’ll become the team’s third receiving option after Anderson and Moore. Samuel’s targets get pushed down the line.
Since Week 6, the Chiefs put the clamps on receiver. Even Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley who each caught a touchdown, had just 45-46 yards to go with it, barely pushing them over the double digit mark. But the Broncos were held in check as were the jets. Aside from that Henry Ruggs bomb, the Chiefs secondary has held their court well and with Samuel low on the progression chart, opportunities will be slim.
