Chris Conley, WR, Kansas City Chiefs
With Sammy Watkins (foot) already out and Tyreek Hill acknowledging his own foot injury suffered against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday is “bad”, Conley might become Kansas City’s de facto No. 1 wide receiver on a short week against the Los Angeles Chargers. He only had two catches for 13 yards against Baltimore, but over the two previous games he had 10 catches and three touchdowns on 15 targets.
The Chargers entered Week 14 in the top-10 of the league against wide receivers (ESPN PPR scoring), but they have allowed a touchdown to the position in each of their last three games. Conley has 27 catches this season, with five touchdowns.
Conley is a highly speculative, high-floor, low-ceiling WR3 for in standard leagues for Week 15, dependent all the way around on how Hill’s status is trending. But for those who are looking for a dart throw in a playoff week, Conley is worth having an eye on.
