Instead of my normal introduction of the fab five, I have decided to quickly run through why Nate Washington is a better start than Torrey Smith, since it helps mix things up a a bit while also fielding a pretty hot topic already.
Both wide-outs have been the primary waiver wire focus heading into fantasy football's Week 4, but the reality is, my mantra of matchups again reigns supreme here.
Nate Washington faces a pretty good Cleveland defense and will probably draw a lot of coverage from budding phenom corner Joe Haden. While this outing will put a dent into what Washington is capable of, it is certainly much better than the rookie Torrey Smith against the elite corners that New York offers.
The other aspect to consider is Smith had ONE GOOD OUTING, while Nate Washington has been consistently a fantasy sleeping giant through three games averaging 13 catches for 166 yards—a 12.6 YPC average.
When deciding on which hot hand to scoop up or start, it is clear that Washington takes the cake here.
Now onto the rankings, and as always, if you have a question for me, leave it below.
Good luck this week, everyone![table “67” not found /]
