- Will it be Julio Jones or Roddy White getting the bulk of the looks against a Saints’ passing defense that has been rather porous this season? That debate keeps both of them from the top spot, though either could produce like the best wide receiver this week. While I would prefer Julio Jones, by a hair, both should be considered top options.
- Would anyone have predicted that Reggie Wayne would lead the NFL in receiving yards through the first nine weeks of the season? He hasn’t scored the touchdowns that other receivers have (he has three TD this season), but he scored in Week 9 and with Andrew Luck at the helm he always is a threat.
- The only reason there are any questions regarding Calvin Johnson is his lack of touchdowns this season. However, he’s seemingly knocked on the door every week and against a Vikings defense that has allowed 14 passing touchdowns, it wouldn’t be shocking to see him find the end zone. Sure, he hasn’t scored in his last two matchups with them (dating back to 2011), but we all know how good he is and what is possible.
- Does anyone think that Carolina can slow down Eric Decker right now? He’s scored two touchdowns in back-to-back games and has six touchdowns in his last four games. He may not get the yardage, but he’s going to likely be a constant red zone threat.
- Denarius Moore saw his touchdown streak end at three in Week 9. While the Ravens’ defense is banged up, they still have allowed just six passing touchdowns on the season. While it’s easy to imagine Moore and Carson Palmer doing some damage, I would consider him more of a low-end WR2 this week.
- The last time Stevie Johnson faced the Patriots he struggled with two catches for 23 yards. However, in two matchups in 2011 he had 12 receptions for 134 yards and two touchdowns. He’s definitely worth using as a WR2.
- While the 49ers are a tough test, it’s hard to shy away from Danny Amendola who should return to being a very good PPR option. As a low-end WR2/high-end WR3, I would absolutely be willing to use him in his first game back.
- With Antonio Brown likely out, Emmanuel Sanders should step into the starting lineup and play a major role for the Steelers. That alone makes him a viable WR3 option.
- Will Hakeem Nicks be healthy enough to play? Consider his spot on the rankings extremely tenuous, at best.
