1. Here's a quick way for Philly QB Michael Vick to break out of a mini-slump: Re-commit to Brent Celek. After collecting 12 catches, 19 targets and 222 yards in his first two games, Celek caught only nine balls for 102 yards and one TD for Weeks 3-5.
2. For a prominent tight end who's only been targeted 29 times, Vernon Davis certainly has the numbers to justify a top-three ranking. He boasts a catch-to-target percentage above 50 for all five games. And in that span, he's notched either 100 receiving yards or one touchdown four times.
3. Let's give Aaron Hernandez (ankle) one full game to recapture his proverbial sea legs before carving out a spot in the top 10. The Pats draw the Jets in Week 7.
4. Fred Davis owners, your moment of fantasy reckoning has finally come. For Weeks 3-5, Davis caught 16 of 17 balls for 214 yards but didn't score once.
Well, this Sunday against Minnesota...the touchdown drought ends!
