Andrew Hawkins led the Bengals with 86 yards receiving on eight receptions during Monday night's loss to the Ravens. We break down the fantasy implications.
Andrew Hawkins led the Cincinnati Bengals in receiving Monday night, catching eight passes for 86 yards during the loss to the Baltimore Ravens. He was targeted nine times on the night, behind only the 11 garnered by A.J. Green for the game.
Analysis: Hawkins was listed as the No. 4 receiver on the depth chart before the game, but if Monday is any indication the second-year wideout is in for a productive year. Armon Binns and Brandon Tate combined for just seven targets from quarterback Andy Dalton. Hawkins appears well-suited for PPR leagues, but bear in mind that plenty of players have looked great for one week only to disappear into fantasy irrelevance. Still, Hawkins is worth a speculative flyer off waiver wires in standard leagues if you have the roster space.
