Shooting Stars

Our top fantasy prospects this week

Cole Beasley – WR, Buf

Cole Beasley was signed to a five-year contract specifically for games such as the one this week. Through three games in 2019, he is tied for the team lead in targets with 23. He is a shifty wide receiver from the slot that can get separation just as well as anyone in the league.

Bill Belichick does a great job scheming against the opponents best player, but I think that will be John Brown because of his deep threat capability. The Pats D will allow dump-off passes underneath to number 10, which is great for people in a PPR fantasy league. Beasley is averaging 6.4 points per game and is available in almost every league. I think the diminutive end could easily get seven points this week with a possible goal-line touchdown if it gets into a shoot out.

Sony Michel – RB, NE

The rich always get richer. That’s what happened when the Patriots drafted Michel last year out of the University of Georgia. Watching Sony Michel in college was always exciting. He has big-play speed and has brought that talent to the NFL.

More from Empire Writes Back

Michel did not perform as expected last week against the New York Jets, but that’s because Rex Burkhead was given 17 opportunities out of the backfield. Burkhead is listed as questionable this week and James White should be back in the fold. Having said that, Michel is still the best runner on the team and averages almost seven points per game. Look for him to get back to form this week with two TDs and 80 yards.

Patriots Defense

One of the reasons why the Patriots won the Superbowl last year was because of their defense. They were able to shut down “wonder boy” Sean McVay’s offense and make them look like the 2019 Jets.

Their current defense looks even better than the one from the Superbowl. They obliterated the Miami Dolphins scoring 35 fantasy points and have yet to allow an offensive touchdown. When a defense is averaging 18 points per game, don’t hesitate to start them. Until the Patriots play the Baltimore Ravens in Week 9, I would say it’s a safe bet to play them every week.

Next. Yankees Aaron Boone deserves to be AL manager of the year. dark
