Kenny Stills, WR, Miami Dolphins
Still has eight receptions for 135 yards and a touchdown on Sunday against the New England Patriots, and he has now scored in back-to-back games. In those same two games, since complaining he couldn’t “throw the ball to himself” and in concert with Ryan Tannehill’s return the week prior, he has 12 catches on 15 targets.
Week 15 brings a tough matchup against the Minnesota Vikings, who entered Week 14 allowing the sixth-fewest fantasy points to wide receivers (ESPN PPR scoring). But they have allowed a touchdown to a wide receiver in three straight games, with a game coming Monday night against the Seattle Seahawks.
Miami’s final two opponents, the Jacksonville Jaguars and Buffalo Bills, each entered Week 14 in the top-five of the league against wide receivers. But the Jaguars showed real signs of quit last Thursday night, and the Bills have allowed a touchdown to a wide receiver in three straight games now (four total).
Despite three of the toughest matchups on paper a wide receiver can have from here on out, Stills is still shaping up to be a viable WR3/WR4 in 12 and 14-team leagues.
