Defensive backs of the NFL, beware! These wide receivers are fixin' to torch you like gold medalists lighting the Olympic flame and make fantasy football owners happy in the process.


Anquan Boldin, Baltimore Ravens

At long last, Joe Flacco has been freed from the shackles of Cam Cameron's conservative offensive scheme, which bodes quite well for Anquan Boldin.

And just in time, too. The Ravens will need to throw the ball effectively to beat a Seahawks team with a solid run defense. Boldin, who's come on strong in the last month, will be all too happy to oblige.

Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh Steelers

It's tough to separate the Ravens from the Steelers these days, though Antonio Brown should have no trouble creating separation this weekend, when he finds room to scoot against the Bengals secondary.

Brown has come on strong over the last three weeks, piling up 278 yards while taking full advantage of Hines Ward's absence. Ward is expected to play on Sunday, but that shouldn't keep Brown from getting plenty of snaps and making the most of those that he gets.

Julio Jones, Atlanta Falcons

Julio Jones has been battling a hamstring strain of late, but that shouldn't keep him out of the Falcons lineup—or yours, for that matter. The Saints secondary is only so-so and figures to have trouble doing much to contain a physical specimen of Jones' size (6'3", 220 pounds) and sub-4.4 speed.

Not to mention his uncanny ability to make incredible catches.
