5. Best Fantasy Football Pickups of Week 15 – New York Jets WR Braxton Berrios
The sprawling reception hall was devastated in New York City as Corey Davis and Elijah Moore touched down the injured reserve this week. Most pundits believed Jamison Crowder would become Zach Wilson’s guy of choice following the injuries, but the immediate beneficiary was Braxton Berrios, a sneaky type of slot receiver that can be used in a variety of ways by the Jets.
Berrios was targeted 10 times by Wilson against the New Orleans Saints in Week 14, racking up six receptions for 52 yards. That sort of stat line will play in the PPR leagues and those numbers could be even better with more accuracy from Wilson, who only made 19 of 42 passes in the afternoon.
There are plenty of opportunities to get Berrios back, who entered the Week 14 list in less than one percent of Yahoo’s leagues. The Jets are expected to lag behind Miami again in Week 15, making Berrios a viable PPR flexible option that has the potential to steal a special teams touchdown as New York’s main kick returner.
