As the fantasy football playoffs kick off, DPJ is once again a recommended addition by our staff — assuming he’s still available in your league — following another class performance against the Cincinnati Bengals.
The third-year wideout has been solid all season long, registering at least 60 yards and at least five targets in eight of the 13 games he’s played in. He’s a must-add as a viable WR3 with upside.
Sean Koerner: I was urging people to add DPJ over a month ago as a potential WR2/3 option.
Coming off a 8/114/0 game against the Bengals, nothing has changed — though it’s worth noting that some of his career-best games have been aided by Amari Cooper being limited by a hip injury.
However, reports from camp indicated DPJ is one of Watson’s favorite targets. They clearly have chemistry and Watson’s ability to push the ball down field should be able to unlock DPJ’s ceiling. He’s a must-add in all formats.
Samantha Previte: Peoples-Jones could be a league winner. He was Cleveland’s best offensive player in a 23-10 loss to the Bengals, catching 8-of-12 targets for 114 yards.
Peoples-Jones is currently the WR14 in half-PPR heading into Monday night and will finish as a top-36 fantasy wideout for the seventh time in 10 games. He has double-digit fantasy points in four of the last five and needs to be taken seriously as a high-end WR3/flex option.
