After pacing the Bengals in targets, receiving yards and receptions in week two (19.1 PPR points) against a stingy Cowboys secondary, you mean to tell me Higgins is projected just 13.8 points against the Jets? I mean, don’t get me wrong the Jets are a little scrappier this year than most would give them credit for, but in what feels like a get-right game for Joe Burrow and company, I find it hard to imagine Higgins and Ja'Marr Chase not eating. I don’t know if a huge game is on the horizon, but it wouldn’t take much for Higgins to beat his projection this week.

Sit Of The Week: Darnell Mooney vs Houston Texans
How could you possibly play him? The supposed WR1 of the Chicago Bears has approximately four receiving yards and just five targets through two games. If you couldn’t tell, that is bad. Houston struggles against the pass, and if Chicago’s pass game was going to get-right, you’d think it would be here. But like I said, how can you have any confidence after what we’ve seen? Even if the matchup is favorable, I’d leave Mooney on the bench (or waiver wire) until I see something major from him.
Others to consider: JuJu Smith-Schuster (KC) - @IND, Marquis Brown (ARI) - LAR, Brandon Aiyuk (SF) - @DEN
