Week 7: Fantasy Football Player Upgrades
Wallace has failed to reach 50 yards in only one game this season and has scored in all but one game as well. His 25 receptions, 313 yards and four TDs lead all Dolphins receivers, and it's not even close. Miami's next two games will come against the Bears and the Jaguars. The Bears' pass defense is in middle of the pack, but Chicago tends to get caught up in shootouts more often than not. Meanwhile, The Jags may have the worst defense in the NFL. Statistically, it's the third-worst in yards allowed per game. Wallace has become a versatile threat in the Dolphins' offense; they are utilizing him on screens, mid-range passes and as a deep threat. He has been Ryan Tannehill's favorite target in the red zone, too. He has huge upside against any defense and is a must-start when the matchups look this good.
Reed has returned with a vengeance. After not playing since Week 1 because of a hamstring injury, he caught eight passes for 92 yards in his first game back against the Cardinals. Arizona is pretty poor at guarding tight ends and in the next two weeks, the Reed's roll should continue against the Titans and the Cowboys. The Titans are in the top 10 of most points allowed to TEs and just watched the Jaguars' Clay Harbor rack up 91 yards and a TD against them. After that, Reed goes up against the Cowboys, who have permitted the most fantasy points to opposing tight ends. Reed's health issues made him a risky draft pick this summer. But as long as he stays on the field, he has the talent to be an elite TE1.
