There were many interesting headlines coming out of NFL Week 3 but one that likely shocked many was the breakout performance out of Mack Hollins against the Titans. Going into this matchup many were high on Davante Adams and Darren Waller in this matchup given how poorly the Titans defense has played and most figured Derek Carr was also in for a big day but few expected Hollins to go off like he did. So, the question now remains, where does Hollins find himself ranking in the Week 4 fantasy football player rankings? High how will his Week 4 fantasy football player projections be? Is he worth grabbing off the fantasy football waiver wire? Let's dive in and see if Mack Hollins is the real deal or not.


Should You Add Mack Hollins Off the Week 4 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire?

Before we talk about Hollins' big Week 3 performance let us first take a quick look back at Week 2 shall we? Against the Cardinals Hollins played 87% of the team's offensive snaps, which was also in line with his Week 1 usage, but instead of the one target he saw in Week 1, he saw eight targets in Week 2.  He turned those eight targets into five catches for 66 yards. At the end of that Week 2 game we saw Hunter Renfrow go down with an injury and maybe we should have seen the potential for Hollins at that moment.  Instead, Hollins largely went unclaimed after the Week 3 waiver wire period with many not expecting him to see any sort of increased production given the fact that Davante Adams and Darren Waller are considered the team's two top pass catching options as it is. However, as we now know, those ideas were greatly mistaken. In Week 3 against the soft matchup against the Titans Hollins caught eight passes on 10 targets for 158 yards and a touchdown. 

Hollins has been around the league for a bit, being a fourth round pick in 2017 by the Eagles before moving onto the Dolphins where his best season came last year when he had 14 catches for 223 yards and four touchdowns.  Through three games this year Hollins has already matched those totals with 14 catches for 240 yards and a score.

Hollins is a big-bodied receiver, standing 6'4 and weighing 220-lbs, making him an ideal outside downfield threat for Carr while Davante Adams and Darren Waller work the middle of the field. Is this level or production for Hollins sustainable? It's unlikely we see 150+ yards from anyone but can he carve out a consistent target share in this offense? Over the past two weeks that answer is seemingly a yes with the Raiders not being a very good team right now that will be trailing in games and need to throw a ton to keep up.  I wouldn't go crazy when it comes to FAAB bids this week, nor would I use the top waiver wire claim on Hollins but if I needed some help at wide receiver I would certainly be willing to take a stab here, especially with Renfrow out of the lineup.
