Larry Fitzgerald (#7 vs.
#12 consensus) takes a stroll into my top 10, as he’ll spearhead Arizona’s passing attack against a Miami defense that was just embarrassed by Baltimore’s passing game in Week 13. While it would be unwise to blindly project the same success going forward, it isn’t as though Fitzgerald is some scrub. Fitz caught 10 balls for 78 yards last week, and this sets up as the kind of game where a couple of those crossing routes could result in six points.
I’m also apparently set on sabotaging my ranks by floating DeAndre Hopkins (#17 vs. #23 consensus) back into the thick of WR2 territory for his matchup against the Colts. Indianapolis may have held their own against Ryan Fitzpatrick in Week 13, but that impresses nobody. They are still a lowly 30th in overall DVOA, and Hopkins saw an insane 15 targets the first time these teams met in Week 6. Now we’re not banking on a season-high 15 targets being replicated, but his nine catches were also a season-high mark. That points to how the Colts really cannot handle someone of Hopkins’ talent. The game is indoors as well, which helps Brock out considering he just embarrassed himself in snowy Lambeau Field last week.
