Quick Thoughts:

  • While it’s tough for two receivers on the same team to put up big numbers in the same game, that shouldn’t dissuade you from using the Cardinals and Patriots duos. Those are two high-powered offenses who could be electric, especially this week.
  • It’s been a bad few weeks for Santonio Holmes, but what better time to bounce back out then against the Browns?
  • Will Sims-Walker return to the Jaguars line-up? After being suspended last week, you have to think that he is going to go out with something to prove. If he’s out or not used much (aka the problems from last week carry over), Tory Holt’s value will increase significantly.
  • Braylon Edwards value is certainly going to be affected by Jericho Cotchery’s ability to take the field. If Cotchery is out again (that risk costs him his spot on this list), Edwards should be featured in the Jets offense. Another week of work certainly should go a long ways.
  • Where’s Calvin Johnson? The early word is that he is going to be out of action. If he plays, he’s a Top 10 option no matter what the match-up, but that risk keeps him off of here.
  • Donnie Avery is the best wide receiver on a terrible team. At least that should mean some opportunities to make plays, right?

What are your thoughts?  Who was left off the list?  Who should be higher?  Who should be lower?

  1. Welker’s likelihood to catch a TD, or lack thereof, probably puts him a little high on the list for my tastes, but I agree he’s a great option.
