Jabar Gaffney @ Giants

If you’re like me, than you had a hard time believing in Jabar Gaffney as an option to trust with your playoff life on the line. But Gaffney has earned WR-3 trust with this play of late. While Santana Moss had the big touchdown-reception last week, it was on a trick-play where receiver Brandon Banks found him open on blown coverage.

Gaffney, on the other hand, has proven to be Rex Grossman’s favorite target down the stretch, and outside of tight end Fred Davis, he has been the Redskins' best pass-catcher this year.

Fortunately for Gaffney, Davis is gone for the year with a suspension, and Gaffney seems to be the big-possession target that is going to get those extra targets left behind.

The Redskins will be throwing the football often against the Giants. New York is sure to score over 30 points with their high-scoring offense and with Eli Manning having a career year. Look for Gaffney to be a solid, trustworthy option to start in the final weeks of the season.


Early Doucet vs. Browns

If you’re looking for a roll-of-the-dice WR-3 or flex play start this week, Early Doucet could give you respectable returns. The Cardinals are playing well of late, and they face the Browns this week.

Doucet had three receptions for 73 yards and a touchdown last week, and it appears Arizona is ready to finish the season strong. Maybe we shouldn’t have viewed the Cowboys loss to them as an upset a few weeks ago.
