5. Travis Kelce vs Denver
Kansas City is all about love. Spread love and wealth across the offense. Kelce, after a slow start in week one has been dominant since. Mahomes spreads the ball around but in big situations or times where yards are needed Kelce is that guy.
Kelce didn’t end up with a touchdown Sunday but did haul in eight passes for 114 yards in the win. Denver struggled mightily in the opener against Seattle but has since rebounded to an extent.
Here’s why Kelce finds himself on this list: weapons. There are simply too many weapons for the Denver defense to stop and who benefits most from that? Travis Kelce. He’s the top tight end in leagues right now for a reason. If Denver tries to key in on the likes of Tyreek Hill and Kareem Hunt, Kelce could once again find himself with a hefty amount of catches and a lot of yards in tow.
4. Jarvis Landry vs Oakland
Baker is on this list and thus so is Jarvis. Landry is a perfect play this week and is finally becoming the top target that Cleveland wanted when they made this move in the offseason.
Bless’em is right when it comes to Jarvis Landry. His ability to catch in traffic and make it look easy is undervalued in the league but the second half Thursday night showed why he’ll fit in perfect with the former Heisman trophy winner.
Landry is a catch machine so if he’s on your roster in PPR leagues you’ve started him for that reason alone. After seven catches for 106 yards in the opener, Landry only had five for 69 yards against New Orleans. Eight catches for 103 yards against the Jets and Landry is consistent as they come to start 2018. Against Oakland? A must.
