Week 16 vs. Chicago Bears
Dante Pettis didn’t blow up last week, but he had a nice game with five receptions and 83 yards. Pettis has strung together four straight games with double-digit fantasy points in PPR formats, and his role in the offense seems to be expanding. He’s now second on the team in receiving yards and his five touchdowns lead the team.
Pettis faces the Bears, who have been dominant on defense this season, but have given up surprisingly the 11th-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers this year. Pettis is a boom-bust prospect against a tough defense, but he has some upside for fantasy owners needing to swing a little bit at the WR3 spot. He’s always a threat to score from distance.
