Week 7 Wide Receivers – Rankings Analysis
Brandon Marshall was listed at #7 according to the consensus, but I’m not willing to put that much confident in the Jets offense, no matter how many targets Marshall gets flooded with in lieu of Eric Decker’s absence. As a result, I’ve got him at #11 outside of the top-10, and he’ll likely drop as the week progresses. It’s not Marshall’s fault and honestly the matchup against Baltimore is good (25th in DVOA against opposing #1 WRs), but the QB situation is hot garbage personified. Sigh.
Ty Montgomery (+9) and Adam Humphries (+14) are also both late movers who are likely buried a bit in the consensus rankings due to their respective situations being connected to recent injury news. Eddie Lacy is reportedly out for several weeks (and possibly the season) and James Starks has already been confirmed as such, so the Packers traded for Knile Davis and will likely lean on Montgomery out of the backfield for the foreseeable future.
This may not mean rushes, but double-digit targets out of the flat are well within his range of outcomes. As for Humphries, he’ll also benefit a bit from Vincent Jackson heading to the IR and should see upwards of seven targets.
