Poll: How many yards will Dorial Green-Beckham have in Week 16?

Once the most-coveted high school recruit, Tennessee Titans rookie wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham has plenty of talent and size (6-5, 235), but there was some expected rust after being required to sit all of 2014 due to NCAA transfer rules.

Starting slowly, Green-Beckham had 40 or fewer yards in all but two of his first 11 games this season. That said, DGB has become much more involved and productive down the stretch and is the top-ranked receiver in Week 16 waiver-wire recommendations.

Against the Patriots on Sunday, Green-Beckham finished with six catches for 113 yards on nine targets and he now has a pair of 100-yard games in the past three weeks. Over that three-game span, DGB has 14 catches for 285 yards (20.4 Y/A) and a touchdown.

(He had 16/243/2 in his first 11 games combined.)

It's been a slow year in general for rookie wide receivers. Through this week's games, Green-Beckham ranks 56th in fantasy football points scored.

The rookie wide receivers that rank ahead of DGB: Amari Cooper (16th), Tyler Lockett (36th) and Stefon Diggs (41st).

The Texans have limited opposing wide receivers to the seventh-fewest fantasy points through Week 15. And since Week 5, the Texans have allowed only one 100-yard receiver (Sammy Watkins in Week 13).
