Eric Decker received a lot of talk heading up to the start of the season as the projected No.1 receiver for Peyton Manning, but thus far Demaryius Thomas looks like the main option. Thomas should be, because he’s a better talent, and while he’s still learning the trade of being a starting receiver in the NFL, he has the talent to be up there with Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne as one of Manning’s top receivers of all time.

That doesn’t mean that Decker isn’t worthy of being a WR2 on your team, and I think both receivers should be considered matchup proof at this point, no matter their stats heading into Week 3. Both will be used often in this offense, and will continue to get better as they work with one of the all-time greats.

Greg Little Bounces Back

Little was a non-factor against the Eagles, but it’s hard to blame him going against Nnamdi Asomugha with a rookie quarterback throwing the football. In Week 2, Little came back with a respectable game and a touchdown to help the Browns get back in the ballgame against the Bengals.

Receivers have had success against the Bills secondary, so if you’re looking for a WR3 this week, give Little a chance. The second-year receiver had a nice off-season, and I believe he will do a much better job holding onto the football this year.
