Mike Wallace, Pittsburgh Steelers
5 catches, 147 yards, 2 TDs
Wallace gets the pleasure of facing fantasy football's worst defense (Redskins) against opposing receivers in Week 8, which could mean one his typical monster days catching the deep ball. Washington has allowed 24 or more fantasy points to opposing receivers in every game this season. Wallace only needs a few chances to ensure that happens again.
Demaryius Thomas, Denver Broncos
8 catches, 142 yards, TD
Someone has to be on the receiving end of what should be another huge statistical day for Peyton Manning. Eric Decker is capable, but Thomas is the big play guy. The Saints have been awful defending against explosive plays in the passing game, and just awful against the pass in general.
Kenny Britt, Tennessee Titans
5 catches, 77 yards, 2 TDs
The Colts have allowed seven touchdowns to opposing receivers over the last three weeks, so Britt should have plenty of opportunities to catch a score at home in Week 8. Opposing receivers are averaging over 26 fantasy points a game, too.
Josh Gordon, Cleveland Browns
4 catches, 100 yards, TD
Surprise pick of the week. The Chargers have allowed a whopping seven receiving touchdowns over the last two weeks, and Gordon has been consistently getting behind coverages this season. Quarterback Brandon Weeden isn't afraid to unleash one deep, either. If Gordon can hang on, a big fantasy day could follow.
