Week 6: Fantasy Football Sleepers
Since Bortles took over as the full-time starter in Week 4, Robinson andAllen Hurns have been the most targeted Jags receivers while Cecil Shorts continues to be restrained by a hamstring injury. And in those two weeks, the healthy receivers have almost identical numbers. But of the two, Robinson is a little more appealing. In terms of yards per pass route run, Robinson ranks 36th among receivers. Hurns is 50th in that statistic. And Bortles is targeting Robinson downfield a bit more than Hurns as the average depth of target for Robinson is a couple yards more. The Jags have a middling matchup with Tennessee this week, but the matchup isn't so bad that a Jacksonville receiver can't have a nice game. Robinson is the receiver most likely to have that nice game.
Amaro is seventh out of 35 qualifying tight ends in terms of yards per pass route run. The problem is that Amaro isn't running enough routes as he's still splitting time with Jeff Cumberland. Cumberland, by the way, ranks 32nd out of those 35 TEs in yards per pass route run. If the Jets were smart, they'd realize that Amaro is the far better weapon for offense almost devoid of weapons. Presumably, the Jets will have to throw a ton while trailing Denver this weekend, so there's a chance Amaro could see an increase in routes and targets. If he maintains his per-route production, Amaro could have a sneaky-good week.
