Although, Johnson is injured and Fitzgerald is still victim of inconsistent quarterback play.
The rest of the receivers in the NFL can be started and sat at times, depending on the secondary they are going up against. Here are four receivers that you should start in your fantasy league this week.
Victor Cruz has become a hot commodity across the fantasy landscape following an injury to Mario Manningham. Even with his return, Cruz is still seeing a heavy workload.
Cruz is a big-play threat any time he touches the ball as he has scored on passes of 74 and 68 yards this season. Over the past three games in which he's started, Cruz has 17 receptions for 369 yards, three touchdowns and an amazing 21.7 yards per reception.
He has quickly shot up the charts in targets as he has been targeted 29 times, good for 16th in the NFL.
With the Giants set to host the Buffalo Bills, Victor Cruz is a must-start. The Bills are currently 26th in pass defense and in two home starts this season, Eli Manning has thrown 30-plus passes. The targets and production will be there once again for Cruz.
Assuming he goes for a big day again, Cruz may be a must-start from here on out.
After missing the past two weeks with a hamstring injury, Yahoo! reported that Miles Austin fully participated in practice on Wednesday and will be expected to again assume his role as Dallas' primary receiver.
Before his injury, Miles Austin was targeted a whopping 15 times in Week 2. Despite playing just two games, Miles Austin has four touchdowns, is averaging seven receptions per game and has 233 receiving yards.
The Cowboys face the 32nd ranked pass defense in New England this weekend, a team that yields over 325 yards through the air to opposing quarterbacks.
Given that Miles Austin is healthy and fully participating in practice, assume he is good to go and assume Tony Romo will look his way often.
Any Santonio Holmes owner has to be disappointed by the lack of production this season.
Some of the blame can be placed on Mark Sanchez, who has had trouble completing passes at times this season. Through five games, Holmes has just 17 receptions and two touchdowns. We expect a lot more from a player who just locked up a five-year contract.
Holmes has been vocal about the passes thrown his way, implicitly placing some of the blame on Sanchez. He's certainly not short on targets as he is just four targets away from being top-10 in the AFC in that category.
For you disgruntled Santonio Holmes owners who are contemplating sitting him this week, think twice. The Jets are going up against Miami, a team that is 31st against the pass and in the upper half of the NFL against the run.
Expect a breakout performance from Holmes that will instill some confidence in fantasy owners.
Until proven otherwise, Pierre Garçon is a must-start in your fantasy league. Though the Colts have yet to win a game, Curtis Painter and Garçon have been a nice duo, which has led to a boat load of points for Garçon the past two weeks with Painter under center.
Garçon is the only Colts receiver on the other end of Painter's touchdown passes (four) and is 11th in the AFC in targets. Although Garçon may not creep up on any secondaries anymore, he will still have a lot of opportunities because coordinators will still be gearing to stop Reggie Wayne.
The Bengals pass defense ranks third in the league, yielding under 200 yards passing per game. That may be concerning, but with the production and amount of targets Garçon has had with Painter leading the Colts offense, he should be in your lineup.
