The Top WRs To Start in Week 8

Marquise Brown, WR, Arizona Cardinals (vs. BAL)

Analysis by Jason Katz | For most start’em and sit’em plays, it’s just playing matchups with good players that aren’t auto-starts every week. Sometimes, I go a little outside the box, though.

The Baltimore Ravens are not an easy matchup. They’re allowing the 10th-fewest points per game to wide receivers. Most interestingly, teams target the WR position a lot against them, doing so 66.5% of the time, which is the fifth most in the league.

However, just 66.7% of their receiving yards allowed go to WRs, which is in the bottom half of the league. The Ravens’ 9.9 yards per route run allowed is the lowest in the league.

So, why would you want to start Marquise Brown? I love a good revenge game.

Not only did Brown leave the Ravens, but he did so on not-so-great terms. There was at least a little animosity over the offense and the way he was used. You can bet he wants to show his former team just who he is.

Additionally, it helps that Brown is also good at football and has a great role. His 27.5% target share is elite. After scoring an incredibly consistent 16.1-17.4 fantasy points from Weeks 2-6, Brown disappointed with 7.4 and 7.9 points the past two weeks. Still, he’s seen 18 targets over that span.

The volume is there, the talent is there, and the motivation is there. I’m expecting a big game from “Hollywood” this week.

Christian Kirk, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars

It’s probably time to acknowledge that Christian Kirk is the clear WR1 for the Jacksonville Jaguars. While fantasy managers wanted desperately for it to be Calvin Ridley, Trevor Lawrence is locking onto Kirk early and often and featuring him week after week.

Now, Kirk gets a matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers’ secondary that has been shredded by opposing receivers through the first seven weeks of the season. They’re allowing 35.5 fantasy points per contest, which is the second most in the entire league.

If you’ve got Kirk on your roster, continue to plug him into your starting lineup with confidence. He’s a top-20 WR for me yet again.
