Amari Cooper has been a difference-maker since joining the Cowboys
Well, Week 14 was certainly a nightmare for myself and so many other fantasy owners, especially at the wide receiver position. I lost Emmanuel Sanders earlier in the week and then Odell Beckham Jr. is a late scratch on Saturday. Needless to say, I lost (in all three leagues), and so my playoff exposure is over and done with. The good news is that maybe some of you caught an OBJ or perhaps even a Todd Gurley owner on their worst possible week?
As for Week 15, the only lineup changes you should do at this point are related to injuries. Beckham will hopefully be back and perhaps Melvin Gordon and/or James Conner too? Even though the latter two aren't WRs each impacts their team's game plan enough that it trickles down to the wide receivers. Always pay attention to injuries, especially those to key players.
There's not much movement in this week's wide receiver rankings, although Amari Cooper is moving up quite a bit after his monster Week 14 performance. And has JuJu Smith-Schuster dethroned Antonio Brown as the top dog in Pittsburgh? This week the Steelers host the Patriots for a game that will have a playoff feel and atmosphere to it. Can Brown rise to the occasion once again?
As always be sure to check back closer to Sunday for any last-minute tweaks to these rankings.
