For the top five this week , we're giving Reggie Wayne the nod over Larry Fitzgerald. The Titans defense has been improving, especially their secondary, while Wayne is facing a very beatable Houston pass defense.

The remaining top 10 choices this week are all excellent WR2's, and most could fit in your line-up as a WR1.

For the rest of this week's rankings , followed by some notes, read on:

1. Reggie Wayne @ HOU
2. Larry Fitzgerald @ TEN
3. Randy Moss @ NO
4. Andre Johnson vs. IND
5. Roddy White vs. TB (Check Status)
6. Wes Welker @ NO
7. Chad Ochocinco vs. CLE
8. Vincent Jackson vs. KC (Sit )
10. Sidney Rice vs. CHI
11. Mike Sims-Walker @ SF (Start )
12. Anquan Boldin @ TEN
13. DeSean Jackson vs. WAS   
14. Marques Colston vs. NE
15. Santonio Holmes @ BAL
16. Hines Ward @ BAL
17. Steve Smith @ NYJ
18. Nate Burleson @ STL
19. Derrick Mason vs. PIT
20. Devin Hester @ MN
21. T.J. Houshmandzadeh @ STL
22. Percy Harvin vs. CHI
23. Chris Chambers @ SD
24. Terrell Owens vs. MIA
25. Michael Crabtree vs. JAC
26. Jerricho Cotchery vs. CAR
27. Steve Breaston @ TEN
28. Pierre Garcon @ HOU
29. Brandon Gibson vs. SEA
30. Earl Bennett @ MN
31. Lee Evans vs. MIA
32. Donnie Avery vs. SEA (Check Status)
33. Jeremy Maclin vs. WAS   
34. Kevin Walter vs. IND
35. Santana Moss @ PHI
36. Malcom Floyd vs. KC
37. Braylon Edwards vs. CAR
38. Laveranues Coles vs. CLE
39. Devery Henderson vs. NE
40. Lance Long @ SD

Notes: Don't buy into Sidney Rice's hot streak ending anytime soon. The Chicago Bears' pass defense is atrocious, and Brett Favre and the Minnesota passing offense shows no signs of lowing down.

We like all Seattle receivers this week, and even like Brandon Gibson's chances against the Seahawks (if you're desperate), considering his 17 looks he got last week, at least you'll know he should be involved in the offense.

Our bottom five this week is made-up of the over-hyped Floyd (don't use him), three other guys who haven't done anything recently (and likely won't), and Lance Long, who we actually like going forward.
