Start or sit in Week 9 PPR leagues?
START. Wilson had a game-high 13 targets last week and continues to put up quality fantasy production game after game. Although he hasn’t scored since Week 2, Wilson has eclipsed 40+ receiving yards in six consecutive outings. The Chargers are ranked dead last in pass defense allowing 297 yards per game. Wilson is a must-start WR in fantasy this week.
Start or sit in Week 9 standard leagues?
START. The Chargers have allowed four receivers to put up 100+ receiving yards this season and Wilson could very well be the fifth. The second-year starter has put up 190 receiving yards on 25 targets over the last two games. His massive target share combined with the Chargers underwhelming secondary make him a no-brainer start. Los Angeles may need to double and expect Wilson to continue his stellar fantasy play.
