Albert Wilson and Kenny Stills’ Injuries Create Interesting Fantasy Stream Opportunities

Both Albert Wilson (hip) and Kenny Stills (groin) suffered injuries versus the Lions in Week 7, paving the path to wide-open volume in the Dolphins (gross) passing attack. Both have been ruled out for Thursday Night’s contest against the Texans, with Wilson’s a potential season-ender; Adam Schefter most recently tweeted Wilson will “most likely” be placed on the IR. Meanwhile, Stills’ long-term outlook is shaky at best, and he should’ve been cut weeks ago regardless with such inconsistent usage. Though an ugly offense with Brock Osweiler at the helm, someone needs to catch passes here. The question is: who should fantasy football owners target?

Danny Amendola (11% owned) screams as the immediate benefactor and worthwhile stream. He’s netted a team-high 18 targets in Osweiler’s two starts, and most recently turned 7 looks into 6 catches, 84 yards, and a score (17.4 FPs). He’s firmly on the streaming radar despite a tough matchup versus Houston. With a Jets team that is routinely destroyed out of the slot, Amendola would be even more appealing in Week 9 if Stills remains sidelined.

Speedster Jakeem Grant (7% owned) also warrants a look, albeit comes with a much lower floor. Failing to top 6 FPs or three catches in his past four contests, Grant is much more boom-or-bust and would be a more appropriate stash than stream. However, he’s flashed elite playmaking skills this season, and the expanded opportunity may allow him to fully secure a regular gig. He’s worth a spot if you have only trash to deal with.

Lastly, the disgruntled Devante Parker may indeed be worth exploring as a one-week rental. He’s reportedly on the trading block with “multiple teams” interested, and oftentimes teams will try to showcase their available talent. Parker would be only usable for the truly, truly desperate, but don’t be surprised if he puts up his most useful 2018 output yet.
