Woods isn’t having a career season, but he has still scored double-digit fantasy points in five straight weeks and has topped 15 points three times in his past four games.
WR Cole Beasley, Buffalo Bills vs. CB Tre Herndon, Jacksonville Jaguars
The Bills' offense is one of the best in the league, and Beasley has ridden that production to a WR32 ranking in points in just seven games.
The 10th-year pro hasn’t had the most consistent season, but he is coming off back-to-back performances with 21-plus fantasy points. His 23.2% target share also leads the team since Week 6.
Beasley has a juicy matchup against the Jaguars' secondary this week. According to PFF’s WR/CB matchup chart, Herndon’s 2.46 receiving yards allowed per coverage snap is the second-worst mark in the league, and his 0.59 fantasy points allowed per route is the worst among qualifying cornerbacks.
This battle is an exciting one, and not just for Beasley, as the Bills’ matchup is the second-easiest of the week according to PFF’s strength of schedule (SoS) metric.
