Kevin Hanson joins SI for the 2019 season. His fantasy rankings have placed him in the Top 20 in each of the past two seasons among all the industry experts tracked by FantasyPros.com, and he has been in the Top 25 in six of the past eight years.

Check out more of Kevin’s rankings: QB, RB, TE, kicker, defense and flex.

WR Start of the Week: DeVante Parker, Miami Dolphins (vs. CIN)

Having a breakout season, Parker has set career highs across the board—59 receptions, 954 yards and eight touchdowns. With four catches for 72 yards and two touchdowns last week, Parker now has multiple scores in two of his past three games.

Not only has he set career highs, but he has been one of the most consistent receivers in the league. Parker now has 55-plus yards and/or a touchdown (or two) in 11 of his past 12 games. The exception was Week 14 against the Jets, when he left in the second quarter with a concussion.

WR Sit of the Week: John Brown, Buffalo Bills (at NE)

Speaking of consistency, Brown began the season with 10 consecutive games with at least 50 receiving yards. Only Michael Thomas has had a longer streak (11 games) this season. Ending a recent three-game 50-yard drought, Brown converted his double-digit Week 15 targets into seven catches for 99 yards against the Steelers.

Looking back at his first matchup against the Patriots, Brown had a productive outing—5/69 on 11 targets. Brown’s yardage total was the fifth-most among receivers facing the Patriots this season.

That said, Stephon Gilmore has played as well as any cornerback in the league and the Patriots have allowed the fewest fantasy points to the position this season. Brown is more of a low-end WR3 or flex this week.
