Fantasy Football: Top 5 Wide Receivers Heading Into Week 4

Frank Fittipaldi@@Frank_FittiCorrespondent IIOctober 1, 2010

1.) Austin Collie, Indianapolis Colts

Who? That's right, Colts wide receiver Austin Collie is leading all wide receivers in scoring through the first 3 weeks of the season. How is this possible? Collie has had 2 monster games including a career game against Denver in Week 3. Collie has been outstanding in PPR (Points Per Reception) leagues because he leads the NFL with 27. Continue to start him as he as been a stud thus far.

 

2.) Anquan Boldin, Baltimore Ravens

Anquan Boldin has brought his skills to Baltimore after being traded from The Cardinals in the off-season. Boldin has a solid Week 1 against a tough Jets defense. The former Cardinal slowed down in Week 2, but exploded with 8 catches for 142 yards and his first 3 touchdowns as a Raven. Boldin will continue to be Joe Flacco's favorite target, be sure to keep him in your lineup.

 

3.) Desean Jackson, Philadelphia Eagles

After a quiet Week 1, Desean Jackson and Michael Vick have developed a chemistry that makes Jackson one of the top wide receivers in all Fantasy leagues. Vick and Jackson have hooked up for 2 touchdowns and should see plenty more throughout the season. Jackson's ability for the big play should keep him in every owner's starting lineup.

 

4.) Roddy White, Atlanta Falcons

Roddy White opened up the season catching 13 passes for 111 yards. Number 84 is amongst the league leaders in receptions with 25, and will continue to get many looks from Quarterback Matt Ryan. White is averaging over 7 receptions per game, which is very good news for owners in PPR leagues.

 

5.) Miles Austin, Dallas Cowboys

Miles Austin had 20 catches through the first 2 games of the season, but came back to Earth in Week 3. Owners of Austin should not worry because he is Tony Romo's main target and will bounce back against Tennessee in Week 5, coming off a bye. Although Austin only has 1 touchdown this season, he had 11 in 2009, and he didn't start until Week 5. Austin will see the end zone plenty of times this season so keep him in your lineup.
