1(N/R) Austin Collie, Indianapolis Colts: He has been sitting on the cusp for three weeks now, but Collie has to be the best receiver in football right now.
Collie stepped in for an injured Pierre Garcon, and the transition was seamless, if not better. Collie could end up being the Colts’ best receiving option by years end. (12 rec, 171 yds, 2 td, 16 tar)
2(N/R) Anquan Boldin, Baltimore Ravens: Finally, that heralded Ravens’ passing attack lived up to the hype.
It wasn’t an easy game for the Ravens against the Browns, but they got it done through the air. When Boldin came in to Baltimore, he was called the final piece of the puzzle.
If the defense continues its dominance, and Boldin can preform like that week in and week out those predictions might be right. (8 rec, 142 yds, 3 td, 11 tar)
3(N/R) DeSean Jackson, Philadelphia Eagles: He is a true playmaker, and it was evident in his performance against the Jaguars.
Jackson has the third-most fantasy points on the season for receivers. Consistency is his game. (5 rec, 153 yds, 1 td, 8 tar)
4(N/R) Brandon Lloyd, Denver Broncos: Lloyd was one of my picks for this year's Miles Austin.
He has lived up to the billing so far, being Kyle Orton’s best target. Lloyd had 10 targets this past week, and an average of seven per game. (6 rec, 169 yds, 1 td, 10 tar)
5(1) Miles Austin, Dallas Cowboys: It was a poor week for Austin this past week in Houston.
It can’t drop Austin out of the top five just yet. Austin should bounce back, but one more poor performance could give way to someone else. (2 rec, 20 yds, 3 tar)
On the cusp: Reggie Wayne, Indianapolis Colts; Brandon Lloyd, Denver Broncos; Santana Moss, Washington Redskins; Roddy White, Atlanta Falcons; Kevin Walter, Houston Texans.
