- A.J. Green has been the better player overall this season, but Calvin Johnson has come alive over the past four weeks. In fact, he has outperformed Green with 32 receptions for 619 yards and three touchdowns vs. Green’s 23 receptions for 386 yards and three touchdowns. The truth is, picking between the two is really splitting hairs. At this point, the hotter player deserves to be sitting atop the rankings.
- Would anyone be surprised to see tonight’s Saints-Falcons game breakdown into a shootout? With the Saints allowing nearly 300 passing yards per game, as well as 22 TD, it’s easy to imagine both Julio Jones and Roddy White posting gaudy numbers. However, the debate between which will be the better option could suppress both of their values.
- Hakeem Nicks finally appears to be healthy, or at least getting there. It’s easy to imagine him fully breaking out against the Redskins, isn’t it?
- It has been a good stretch for Brandon Marshall, posting 31 receptions for 342 yards and four touchdowns over his past four games. The question is, can he find the end zone against a Seahawks defense that has allowed just 10 passing touchdowns this season? Throw in the fact that they give up little yardage (200.7 yards per game) and there would be cause for concern. If the Seahawks cornerback duo had been suspended for the game, as originally expected, things would be different. With the current word being that appeals will keep them on the field, Marshall drops down to WR2 status.
- While Greg Jennings is expected back this week, I wouldn’t suddenly push him up towards the top of the rankings so quickly. The Packers have numerous other options at their disposal and you would think Jennings would be eased back into the mix. Think of him more like a WR3, at best, and probably someone best served to have on your bench.
- It didn’t take Pierre Garcon long to look healthy and on point with Robert Griffin III, did it?
- I know Steve Smith hasn’t done too much recently, and has scored just one touchdown this season. That being said, the Kansas City Chiefs have allowed 22 passing TD on the year and it finally appears like Cam Newton is finding his way. As a WR2, you have to like Smith’s potential to produce for you this week.
- It’s looking more and more like another week of Charlie Batch quarterbacking for the Steelers (though that could be changing, and quickly). Mike Wallace owners can all grumble and leave him on their bench unless Ben Roethlisberger ultimately does play.
- Will Danny Amendola be more than a decoy this week? We’ll have to monitor the news to see, but for now I would be extremely cautious with him.
