Muhammad Wilkerson, DE, Jets
Perhaps he never got dumped in your league. Perhaps Sunday will prove to be an outlier in a disappointing season. But this guy also brings enough productive history to earn benefit of the doubt on what might have been a Week 8 breakthrough.
Wilkerson tallied 5 solo tackles, including 2 for loss and his 1st full sack of the season. And he did so against an Atlanta O-line that entered the week 12th in Football Outsiders’ adjusted sack rate and 5th in adjusted line yards.
If Wilkerson can succeed against the Falcons, then I’m willing to bet on him in Week 9 against the Bills, who entered Week 8 as a top-10 scoring matchup for fantasy D-linemen.
