As for guys you can target in deep leageus. The WR Meredeith on Chicago seems like a solid pick up. He had 12 targets for like 130 yards and a TD last week. Hoyer seems to like throwing to him.
Ladarius Green is set to return in week 7 I believe. He will be the #1 TE on a good offense.
I'm pretty high on NE WR Chris Hogan. Had a nice week in Brady's debut going for over 100 yards. He basically takes over the role that LaFell had the past two years. He will primarily be the deep threat on that offense. He will probably be no more than the #4 target on that team, but NE has the best offense in the NFL, and Brady will throw around 40 times a game. If he can just get 7+ targets a game I think he will be a WR2. LaFell was a WR2 in his first year with NE, and IMO Hogan is a better talent.
Hogan has potential, but a lot would have to happen for him to be a consisten WR2. Last week he had over 110 yards I believe...but that was on 4 catches and just 4 targets. He was the 5th most targeted..
Meredith is probably gone in most leagues already...you dont fly under the radar in any league for long with 9 catches and 100 yards..especially when the WR in front is hurt. I actually have Meredith and Royal on one team now and the problem is trying to figure out whether to use one or not and which one..because the way my year is going I will guess wrong every time!
