Fantasy Football Sit/Start Week 17: WRs and TEs

SIT: Isaiah McKenzie — Buffalo Bills (vs ATL)

With Cole Beasley not in the lineup, McKenzie took full advantage as the slot receiver for Buffalo. During its win over New England in Foxboro, McKenzie exploded — catching 11 passes for 125 yards and a touchdown (on 12 targets). McKenzie’s speed posed tons of issues for New England. This was particularly the case on crossing routes.

We’re a bit skeptical on McKenzie. It’s a MASSIVE gamble to start him in a fantasy final or semifinal. He’s coming off a big game. However, if we’re operating with context, 11 of McKenzie’s 18 catches this year came in one game.
