Wide Receiver Player Notes
For The Last 15 Days
 
Jerricho Cotchery, WR, CAR10/31/2014 9:49:00 AM
Description: Wideout Jerricho Cotchery caught two balls for a team-high 59 yards against the Saints.
Insight: He's normally the third option behind Kelvin Benjamin and Greg Olsen and fantasy owners can't make a living on a receiver catching two passes.
Kelvin Benjamin, WR, CARCold10/31/2014 9:45:00 AM
Description: Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin was targeted 10 times, but caught just two for 18 yard..
Insight: That included a drop in the end zone that might have salvaged the day for fantasy owners. Unfortunately, that's what rookies do, and you knew that when you drafted him.
Marques Colston, WR, NOSCold10/31/2014 9:37:00 AM
Description: The handwriting is on the wall for Saints wide receiver Marques Colston's owners.
Insight: Colston just isn't a primary target anymore and his fantasy value, save for one big game in Week 7, has been minimal. Thursday night against Carolina he saw three targets, catching all of them, for 36 yards.
Brandin Cooks, WR, NOS10/31/2014 9:33:00 AM
Description: Saints rookie wideout Brandin Cooks was a non-factor for most of the game against Carolina, catching just three balls for 38 yards.
Insight: Carolina was protecting against Cooks and the deep ball, so the Saints ran the ball 37 times and threw it just 34 times. The low percentage makes it hard to keep all the receivers happy.
Kenny Stills, WR, NOS10/31/2014 9:30:00 AM
Description: Saints receiver Kenny Stills saw a team-high eight targets, catching five for 72 yards.
Insight: Stills, Brandin Cooks and tight end Jimmy Graham are the future for the Saints receiving corps as older guys like Marques Colston and Robert Meachem slowly gets fazed out.
A.J. Green, WR, CIN10/30/2014 2:25:00 PM
Description: Bengals receiver A.J. Green (toe) was on the practice field Thursday.
Insight: While he also practiced on a limited basis on Wednesday, Green admitted that he does not want to make the toe injury any worse, so expect this to be a true game-time decision.
Reggie Wayne, WR, IND10/30/2014 2:20:00 PM
Description: Colts receiver Reggie Wayne (elbow) matchup against Pittsburgh and didn't practice Thursday, but could return later this week and be ready come Monday night's game.
Insight: Wayne has only posted fantasy-worthy numbers once this season and we'd sort of like to see what Donte Moncrief can do after last week's 100-yard performance.
Donte Moncrief, WR, INDHot10/30/2014 2:08:00 PM
Description: Colts rookie WR Donte Moncrief stepped up and produced when called on last weekend and coach Chuck Pagano specifically called his name out when saying he'd like to get him "as many touches as possible."
Insight: Moncrief was way ahead veteran Hakeem Nicks as a No. 2 option. He caught seven balls for 113 yards and a touchdown and looked as fast as anyone on the field. Don't hurry back Reggie.
A.J. Green, WR, CIN10/29/2014 7:33:00 PM
Description: Bengals receiver A.J. Green (toe) indicated that he is still unsure about his status for Week 9.
Insight: While he practiced on a limited basis on Wednesday, Green admitted that he does not want to make the toe injury any worse. As a result, it is looking likely that he will come down to a game-time decision on Sunday.
A.J. Green, WR, CIN10/29/2014 3:30:00 PM
Description: Bengals receiver A.J. Green practiced on Wednesday according to ESPN Bengals reporter Coley Harvey.
Insight: We don't normally care that much if a player practices or not on Wednesday, but this was Green's first Wednesday practice in about a month. He is going to try and play against the Jaguars on Sunday. If he does, we do not expect his snaps to be limited.
Calvin Johnson, WR, DET10/29/2014 10:57:00 AM
Description: Lions receiver Calvin Johnson expects to return to action after the Lions' Week 9 bye.
Insight: Johnson has been out since Week 5 and will be a huge addition to any team thats has been able to survivor his absence. He will be good to go for the plyaoffs.
Michael Campanaro, WR, BAL10/28/2014 12:04:00 PM
Description: Ravens wideout Michael Campanaro is expected to miss time due to a hamstring injury, according to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun.
Insight: Campanaro was targeted three times Sunday and caught all three for 40 yards.
Brian Quick, WR, STL10/27/2014 1:05:00 PM
Description: Rams receiver Brian Quick's injury is a dislocated shoulder and torn rotator cuff, according to Adam Schefter.
Insight: Quick is likely done for the season, if that's true. he had taken a giant leap forward this season and in the seven games he played, he had already set career highs for receptions (25), yards (375) and touchdowns (3).
Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, MIN10/27/2014 11:14:00 AM
Description: Vikings receiver Cordarrelle Patterson had his best receiving day of 2014, but left the stadium in a walking boot, according to a St. Paul Pioneer Press report.
Insight: He had six receptions for 86 yards, and one carry for 10 yards. he said it was just precautionary, but fantasy owners should watch him this week in practice.
John Brown, WR, ARI10/27/2014 11:01:00 AM
Description: Third-round selection John Brown exploded in the final minutes with a 75-yard touchdown catch and run which turned out to bethe game-winner.
Insight: He's a small, fast receiver and beat the Eagles secondary. It was his first fantasy-worthy game since Week 2, but he seems to have a future.
Michael Floyd, WR, ARICold10/27/2014 10:59:00 AM
Description: Arizona wide receiver Michael Floyd wasn't part of the offensive explosion in this one against Philadelphia.
Insight: Floyd was targeted four times, but didn't catch a pass. Sunday was Larry Fitzgerald's day to be the guy.
Larry Fitzgerald, WR, ARI10/27/2014 10:58:00 AM
Description: Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald has always "owned" the Eagles and Sunday was an extention of that.
Insight: Fitzgerald finished the day with seven receptions for 160 yards and a score, highlighted by an 80-yard touchdown catch and run.
Jordan Matthews, WR, PHI10/27/2014 10:53:00 AM
Description: Eagles rookie receiver Jordan Matthews saw 11 targets in Sunday's game against Arizona.
Insight: Given that many opportunities, we would have liked to see more than six receptions for 47 yards. But then he's a rookie and that's what rookies do.
Jeremy Maclin, WR, PHIHot10/27/2014 10:50:00 AM
Description: Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin was a huge factor in this one with a dozen receptions for 187 yards and two touchdowns.
Insight: Maclin has been Foles' favorite target for most of the season. In this one his usually low percentage of receptions was a solid 75 percent and he produced in a big way.
Andrew Hawkins, WR, CLE10/27/2014 10:44:00 AM
Description: In a game with very little offense, Browns receiver Andrew Hawkins was one of the few fantasy-worthy players.
Insight: Hawkins caught seven of nine balls for 88 yards and a touchdown. That's two double-digit fantasy totals back-to-back.
Andre Holmes, WR, OAK10/27/2014 10:35:00 AM
Description: Raiders receiver Andre Holmes caught five balls for 69 yards and a late garbage-time touchdown.
Insight: Holmes has been inconsistent, like his rookie quarterback, but a late touchdown counts as much as any other and his fantasy owners will take the double-digit production.
James Jones, WR, OAK10/27/2014 10:34:00 AM
Description: Raiders receiver James Jones was targeted a team-high 11 times.
Insight: Jones caught six for 62 yards. He's not been consistent this season, but with a rookie quarterback what did you expect?
Martavis Bryant, WR, PITHot10/27/2014 10:23:00 AM
Description: Steelers rookie wideout Martavis Bryant has been active for two games and has three touchdown catches.
Insight: Against the Colts he caught five for 83 yards and two touchdowns. Bryant has shown elite speed in running by most cornerbacks and should become the guy opposite Antonio Brown. If he's available in your league he should be claimed.
Antonio Brown, WR, PITHot10/27/2014 10:22:00 AM
Description: Steelers receiver Antonio Brown continued his streak of at least five catches, hauling in 10 of 13 targets for 133 yards and two scores.
Insight: Brown's fantasy owners were probable unhappy when Ben Roethlisberger's first two touchdown passes went to wideouts other than Brown, but "Big Ben" didn't forget his No. 1 guy and hit him for two scores in the second quarter.
Hakeem Nicks, WR, INDCold10/27/2014 10:17:00 AM
Description: Colts wideout Hakeem Nicks caught just one of six targets for 27 yards.
Insight: Nicks should be able to see the handwriting on the wall. He's fallen well down the depth chart and isn't going to get many opportunities. Fantasy owners can safely drop him, if thay haven't already.
Donte Moncrief, WR, INDHot10/27/2014 10:13:00 AM
Description: With Colts starter Reggie Wayne (elbow) missing Week 8, rookie Donte Moncrief stepped up and produced.
Insight: Moncrief was way ahead veteran Hakeem Nicks as a No. 2 option. He caught seven balls for 113 yards and a touchdown and looked as fast as anyone on the field. By next season he'll be starting opposite Hilton on a regular basis.
T.Y. Hilton, WR, INDHot10/27/2014 10:10:00 AM
Description: Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton continues to produce and the Andrew Luck to Hilton combination is becoming one of the league's best.
Insight: Hilton had six catches for 155 yards and a score. As long as Luck is under center, Hilton is a must start.
Kenny Stills, WR, NOS10/27/2014 10:05:00 AM
Description: Saints receiver Kenny Stills caught all four targets for 57 yards Sunday night against Green Bay.
Insight: Rookie wide receiver Brandin Cooks is the third receiver with Marques Colston and Jimmy Graham still get the bulk of the targets from Drew Brees which limits Stills' abilityt to produce on a consistent basis. We like his long-term outlook, but that might not become reailty until Colston retires.
Marques Colston, WR, NOS10/27/2014 10:02:00 AM
Description: Saints wide receiver Marques Colston wasn't very active against Green Bay, catching four balls for 49 yards.
Insight: Colston had six catches for 111 yards on 10 targets in Week 7, but took a back seat to Brandin Cooks and even Kenny Stills in this one. As the young receivers grow, Colston's production is likely to be more and more inconsistent.
Brandin Cooks, WR, NOSHot10/27/2014 9:58:00 AM
Description: Saints rookie wideout Brandin Cooks was clearly Brees' favorite target Sunday night against Green Bay.
Insight: Cooks caught six of seven targets for 94 yards and a touchdown, but the one he dropped would have been a big gainer as well. On a team with Marques Colston and Jimmy Graham, to be Brees' No. 1 target, says a lot.
Davante Adams, WR, GBP10/27/2014 9:33:00 AM
Description: Packers rookie receiver Davante Adams was targeted a team-high nine times and caught seven for 75 yards.
Insight: Adams was a big part of the offense as the No. 3 wideout ahead of Jarrett Boykin. He's still growing, but with Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb his upside is severely limited.
Randall Cobb, WR, GBPHot10/27/2014 9:30:00 AM
Description: Green Bay wideout Randall Cobb put up a 70-yard touchdown catch and run on the first series.
Insight: Cobb finished the day with 126 yards and the score on five receptions. Jordy Nelson has been the better of the two receivers for most of the season, but the Saints made an effort to take Nelson out of this game. Cobb has scored in five straight and seven out of eight.
Jordy Nelson, WR, GBP10/27/2014 9:28:00 AM
Description: You would think when Aaron Rodgers throws for 418 yards that receiver Jordy Nelson would get his share, but it didn't happen.
Insight: Nelson caught just three of five targets for 25 yards. It was obvious the Saints weren't going to let Nelson beat them. Randall Cobb, Davante Adams and Eddie Lacy did the heavy lifting.
Brandon LaFell, WR, NEP10/26/2014 7:36:00 PM
Description: Patriots receiver Brandon LaFell had a big day against the Bears.
Insight: He caught 11 balls for 124 yards and a score. LaFell should now be considered a borderline WR2, as the season progresses.
Brandon Marshall, WR, CHI10/26/2014 7:26:00 PM
Description: Bears wideout Brandon Marshall was not a factor in Sunday's loss to the Patriots.
Insight: He had only three catches for 35 yards, frustrating fantasy owners yet again. As of now, consider Marshall a WR2.
Alshon Jeffery, WR, CHI10/26/2014 7:24:00 PM
Description: Bears wideout Alshon Jeffery scored his third touchdown of the season.
Insight: He managed five catches for 59 yards, and is really more of a WR2, at this point in time.
Cecil Shorts III, WR, JAC10/26/2014 7:15:00 PM
Description: Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts had 41 yards on Sunday.
Insight: He did so on three receptions, and with him playing for a lousy team, Shorts' numbers will continue to be inconsistent.
Allen Robinson, WR, JAC10/26/2014 7:13:00 PM
Description: Jaguars rookie receiver Allen Robinson led the team in receiving during Week 8.
Insight: Robinson had a nice afternoon catching 5 balls for 82 yards and a touchdown. He accumulated 10 targets as well, but will remain a WR4/5 option.
Denard Robinson, WR, JACHot10/26/2014 7:12:00 PM
Description: Jaguars running back Denard Robinson conitued hot play on Sunday.
Insight: He rushed for 108 yards on 18 carries, along with 10 yards on one catch. Robinson is developing into a nice RB2 option.
Mike Wallace, WR, MIA10/26/2014 7:07:00 PM
Description: Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace led the team in receiving during Week 8's win.
Insight: He had two catches for 59 yards, on seven targets. Although this was not Wallace's best performance of the season, he will continue to be a good option for fantasy owners.
Mohamed Sanu, WR, CIN10/26/2014 7:00:00 PM
Description: Bengals receiver Mohamed Sanu had another productive day with A.J. Green sidelined.
Insight: He had five receptions for 125 yards, on nine targets. Even when Green returns, Sanu will still be a valuable fantasy player, as we move forward.
Steve Smith Sr, WR, BAL10/26/2014 6:53:00 PM
Description: Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. managed only 35 receiving yards on Sunday.
Insight: He had three receptions, but will look to get back on track in Week 9. Smith is still a solid WR2 play.
Kelvin Benjamin, WR, CAR10/26/2014 6:42:00 PM
Description: Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin caught four passes for a team-high 94 yards on Sunday.
Insight: He failed to find the end zone, but it was another solid afternoon for the Panthers' top receiving threat.
Doug Baldwin, WR, SEA10/26/2014 6:35:00 PM
Description: Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin led Seattle in receiving during Week 8.
Insight: He had six catches for 61 yards, on eight targets, and clearly looks like Seattle's top receiving threat.
Vincent Jackson, WR, TAM10/26/2014 6:28:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson had a day to forget on Sunday.
Insight: He had only one catch for 13 yards, as his inconsistent play continues. Playing on a team like Tampa Bay only hurts Jackson's value, as owners will hope he is dealt by Tuesday's trade deadline.
Mike Evans, WR, TAM10/26/2014 6:25:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay rookie receiver Mike Evans totaled 78 yards in Sunday's loss to Minnesota.
Insight: He caught four passes, on seven targets, and led the team in receiving. Consider Evans a WR3, moving forward.
Greg Jennings, WR, MIN10/26/2014 6:21:00 PM
Description: Vikings wideout Greg Jennings scored his second touchdown of the season, during Sunday's win.
Insight: He will never produce the way he did in Green Bay, as Jennings had only three catches for 38 yards. He is a WR4 at best.
Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, MIN10/26/2014 6:19:00 PM
Description: Vikings receiver Cordarrelle Patterson had his best receiving day of 2014.
Insight: He had six receptions for 86 yards, and one carry for 10 yards. However, Patterson's inconsistent play will result in him being a low-end WR3.
Justin Hunter, WR, TEN10/26/2014 6:12:00 PM
Description: Titans receiver Justin Hunter scored a touchdown in Sunday's loss to Houston.
Insight: It was his second touchdown of the season, but owners should expect inconsistent production for the rest of 2014.
Kendall Wright, WR, TEN10/26/2014 6:11:00 PM
Description: Titans receiver Kendall Wright manged three catches for 53 yards on Sunday.
Insight: He had five targets, and with Zach Mettenberger under center, Wright is nore than a WR3.
Nate Washington, WR, TEN10/26/2014 6:10:00 PM
Description: Titans receiver Nate Washington led the team in receiving during Week 8's loss to the Texans.
Insight: He totaled four catches for 68 yards, on only four targets. Washington does not hold much fantasy appeal as the season moves on.
Andre Johnson, WR, HOU10/26/2014 6:04:00 PM
Description: Texans receiver Andre Johnson totaled 12 targets during Week 8.
Insight: He caught seven of them for 55 yards, but owners would like him to score some more touchdowns, as he has only one in 2014.
DeAndre Hopkins, WR, HOU10/26/2014 6:02:00 PM
Description: Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins led the team in receiving on Sunday.
Insight: On 11 targets, Hopkins had five catches for 95 yards, but was unable to find the end zone. He will be a WR3, moving forward.
Dwayne Bowe, WR, KAN10/26/2014 5:56:00 PM
Description: Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe led the team in receiving duriong Sunday's win over the Rams.
Insight: He caught all six targets for 64 yards, but did not find the end zone. Bowe is no more than a WR3.
Kenny Britt, WR, STL10/26/2014 5:47:00 PM
Description: Rams wide receiver Kenny Britt led the team in receiving during Sunday's loss to Kansas City.
Insight: Britt had only two catches for 52 yards, as no Rams' player was able to breakout against the Chief's tough defense. Britt is a WR4, at best.
Eric Decker, WR, NYJ10/26/2014 5:39:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker hauled in seven passes during Sundays's loss to Buffalo.
Insight: He had only 40 yards however, but did manage 11 targets. There is no denying Decker's talent, but with him being on such a lousy team, he should be considered a WR3.
Percy Harvin, WR, NYJ10/26/2014 5:36:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Percy Harvin totaled seven touches in his team-debut.
Insight: He had three catches for 22 yards and four carries for 28 yards. Harvin should see more touches than he did in Seattle, but his production will continue to remain hit-or-miss.
Sammy Watkins, WR, BUF10/26/2014 5:27:00 PM
Description: Bills rookie receiver Sammy Watkins had a nice afternoon, but made a big rookie mistake on Sunday.
Insight: Watkins had three catches for 157 yards and one touchdown, but fantasy owners will be talking about his 84-yard reception in the second quarter, as he thought he had a walk-in score. However, Watkins was caught from behind, leading to a two-yard Frank Summers touchdown-run.
Robert Woods, WR, BUF10/26/2014 3:15:00 PM
Description: Bills receiver Robert Woods left Sunday's game against the Jets with an apparent back injury.
Insight: He went into the locker room towards the end of the second quarter, and Buffalo is calling his return questionable. Before he went down, Woods had three receptions for 50 yards and a touchdown.
Torrey Smith, WR, BAL10/26/2014 2:56:00 PM
Description: Ravens wideout Torrey Smith is being checked out for a concussion.
Insight: Smith hasn't put up the yardage this season, with a game-high of 81, but he has scored four times in the past four games heading into today versus Cincinnati.
Brian Quick, WR, STL10/26/2014 2:05:00 PM
Description: Rams receiver Brian Quick left Sunday's game with a left shoulder/arm injury.
Insight: Quick had just the one catch for 10 yards on the play which he was injured.
Roddy White, WR, ATL10/26/2014 1:09:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Roddy White led his team in targets, but it was just six.
Insight: He caught five for a team-high 66 yards, but he couldn't find the end zone. The two touchdown passes were scored by Devonta Freeman and Bear Pascoe. That couldn't have helped many fantasy owners.
Julio Jones, WR, ATL10/26/2014 1:08:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones was limited to just 58 yards on four catches.
Insight: That won't make any of his fantasy owners happy. He was tied with Roddy White for targets with six, but we like to see him targeted 10 times or more per game.
Golden Tate, WR, DETHot10/26/2014 1:00:00 PM
Description: Lions receiver Golden Tate was a must-start in Week 8 with Calvin Johnson sidelined.
Insight: Tate was Matthew Stafford's No. 1 target once again. Tate caught seven of 15 targets for 151 yards and a touchdown.
Eric Decker, WR, NYJ10/26/2014 12:15:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker (hamstring) is active against the Bills.
Insight: Decker seems to be fine after dealing with the hamstring ailment for a few weeks. Start him as you normally would.
Steve Smith Sr, WR, BAL10/26/2014 12:10:00 PM
Description: Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. was on the injury report earlier in the week, but he's active for Week 8.
Insight: He was kind of the forgotten man in the Ravens receiving core in Week 7, but he still put up a decent total for fantasy purposes.
Andre Johnson, WR, HOU10/26/2014 12:09:00 PM
Description: Texans receiver Andre Johnson (ankle) is active after being limited in practice all week.
Insight: No surprise here. Owners roll with Johnson, as you normally would.
A.J. Green, WR, CIN10/26/2014 11:44:00 AM
Description: Bengals receiver A.J. Green will not play Sunday, he's inactive
Insight: This is nothing new. Green is battling a toe injury that appears will keep lingering. Fantasy owners need to find another option for at least Week 8.
Vincent Jackson, WR, TAM10/26/2014 10:51:00 AM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson has been the subject of trade talks, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.
Insight: Rapoport reports that the Eagles, Patriots, and Seahawks are among the teams that have called Tampa Bay regarding Jackson. If he is traded to any of these three teams, his fantasy value will skyrocket.
Harry Douglas, WR, ATL10/26/2014 8:53:00 AM
Description: Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas is active for Sunday's game in London against Detroit.
Insight: Devin Hester drops to the No. 4 wideout, behind Julio Jones, Roddy White and Douglas.
Julio Jones, WR, ATL10/26/2014 8:51:00 AM
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones was limited in practice earlier in the week, but was never really a question mark for Week 8 and as expected is active.
Insight: Jones (49-676-3) and the Falcons face a Lions defense which has stubbornly yielded a league-low seven touchdown passes this season (tied with Baltimore).
Calvin Johnson, WR, DET10/26/2014 8:40:00 AM
Description: Lions receiver Calvin Johnson is not going to play in Week 8 in London against Atlanta - he is inactive.
Insight: The obviously beneficiary is Golden Tate. The Lions are also missing three tight ends, which might indicate the short passing game will go to Joique Bell.
Dez Bryant, WR, DAL10/25/2014 4:41:00 PM
Description: Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is probable for Monday night against the Redskins.
Insight: He is a must-start every week, but especially in Week 8. Bryant is matched up with rookie cornerback Bashaud Breeland of Washington. He should have a huge week.
Denard Robinson, WR, JAC10/25/2014 1:02:00 PM
Description: ESPN Jaguars reporter Mike DiRocco has heard the coaches "still aren't sure if [Denard] Robinson is capable of handling a heavy workload each week."
Insight: Robinson had 22 carries for 127 yards against the Browns, but we do not expect Robinson to become a workhorse back and average 20 carries per week. At 197 pounds and behind a below average offensive line, Robinson's touches will be somewhat limited even if he is the featured back. Twenty carries is more like his ceiling than his average.
A.J. Green, WR, CIN10/25/2014 12:50:00 PM
Description: Bengals receiver A.J. Green is unlikely to play in this Sunday according to Albert Breer of NFL Network.
Insight: This is nothing new. Green is battling a toe injury that appears will keep lingering. Fantasy owners need to find another option for at least Week 8.
Golden Tate, WR, DET10/24/2014 10:33:00 PM
Description: Lions receiver Golden Tate is a must-start in Week 8.
Insight: It is unlikely Calvin Johnson suits up for the game in London on Sunday morning. That leaves Tate as Matthew Stafford's No. 1 target once again. Tate has 10 catches for 154 yards and a touchdown last week versus the Saints.
Calvin Johnson, WR, DET10/24/2014 10:28:00 PM
Description: Lions receiver Calvin Johnson is not likely going to play in Week 8 in London according to ESPN's Ed Werner.
Insight: Werder reports Lions coach Jim Caldwell is thinking big picture and with the Lions bye a week away, he will likely sit Megatron and Reggie Bush. We expect the Lions to continue to rely heavily on Joique Bell and Golden Tate. Those guys are must-starts.
Reggie Wayne, WR, IND10/24/2014 2:24:00 PM
Description: Colts receiver Reggie Wayne (elbow) is out for Week 8's matchup against Pittsburgh.
Insight: Wayne has only posted fantasy-worthy numbers once this season and is more security blanket for Andrew Luck than fantasy asset. Donte Moncrief is likelt to see more of an increase than Hakeen Nicks.
A.J. Green, WR, CIN10/24/2014 2:15:00 PM
Description: Bengals receiver A.J. Green didn't practice Friday and can't be considered anything but doubtful for Sunday.
Insight: Green's fantasy owners should have another plan in place because it's not looking good for him to start in Week 8. Mohamed Sanu owners get a reprieve.
Calvin Johnson, WR, DET10/24/2014 2:12:00 PM
Description: Lions receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle) is expected to be a game-time decision.
Insight: Fortunately for fantasy owners, game-time is 9:30 a.m. Sunday morning so if he doesn't play you have plenty of time to make your alternate plans. Golden Tate will continue to be a borderline WR1 for Sunday's tilt against the Falcons if Megatron sits.
Eddie Royal, WR, SDCCold10/24/2014 9:43:00 AM
Description: San Diego receiver Eddie Royal's caught just three balls for 29 yards in The Thursday night loss to Denver.
Insight: Royal has been quiet over the past four games with just 138 yards and one touchdown over the span. That's not fantasy worthy.
Keenan Allen, WR, SDC10/24/2014 9:39:00 AM
Description: Chargers receiver Keenan Allen led the team with 13 targets, catching nine for 73 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: With the Broncos great pass rush, short, quick passes were the strategy for the night which is why Allen finished the day with just an 8.1 yards-per-catch average.
Malcom Floyd, WR, SDC10/24/2014 9:39:00 AM
Description: San Diego receiver Malcom Floyd left the game briefly after falling hard on his shoulder but returned to catch four balls for 58 yards.
Insight: He's a boom-or-bust receiver because he's the Charger's deep threat with Keenan Allen the possession receiver and Antonio Gates the red zone guy.
Wes Welker, WR, DENCold10/24/2014 9:28:00 AM
Description: Broncos receiver Wes Welker's best contributions Thursday noght didn't include catching the ball.
Insight: He blocked well on flanker screens and recovered an Emmanuel Sanders fumble late in the game. Welker is the fourth option these days behind the "Thomas Brothers" and Emmanuel Sanders, so his fantasy value is limited.
Emmanuel Sanders, WR, DENHot10/24/2014 9:22:00 AM
Description: Receiver Emmanuel Sanders was Peyton Mannings No. 1 receiver Thursday night catching all nine targets for 120 yards and three scores.
Insight: Sanders has mostly been used as a "move-the-chains-guy" with Demaryius Thomas and Julius Thomas doing the scoring - until Thursday night. He is averaging 90 yards per game receiving.
Demaryius Thomas, WR, DENHot10/24/2014 9:08:00 AM
Description: Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas' expectations were so high heading into the Thursday night game against San Diego that his eight receptions for 105 yards almost feels like he let fantasy owners down.
Insight: After 521 yards and five touchdowns in the three previous weeks, his night was still a solid points producer and fantasy owners should continue be on him every week.
Denard Robinson, WR, JAC10/23/2014 5:08:00 PM
Description: Jaguars coach Gus Bradley confirmed Thursday Denard Robinson will remain the starting running back for Week 8 even though Toby Gerhart is back.
Insight: Robinson ran 22 times for 127 yards against the Browns, so Bradley is sticking with what works. Gerhart has been disappointing since joining Jacksonville. Gerhart will get some carries, but Robinson is the only Jaguars running back worth starting in fantasy.
Kendall Wright, WR, TEN10/23/2014 3:10:00 PM
Description: Titans receiver Kendall Wright caught six passes for 68 yards and a touchdown against the Redskins in Week 7, but will be hard-pressed to match that in Week 8 against Houston.
Insight: Wright will be receiving passes from untested sixth-round rookie QB Zach Mettenberger, who will likely be running for his life from J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney.
Donte Moncrief, WR, IND10/23/2014 2:32:00 PM
Description: If Colts starter Reggie Wayne (elbow) misses Week 8, rookie Donte Moncrief could see additional work.
Insight: Moncrief actually saw more snaps than veteran Hakeem Nicks. Still, he's not likely going to be fantasy worthy. The Colts use tight ends like wideouts and it's more than likely that Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener would see increased targets than the rookie.
Mohamed Sanu, WR, CIN10/23/2014 1:26:00 PM
Description: Bengals receiver Mohamed Sanu was a big fantasy disappointment in Week 7 against the Colts, but he likely gets another chance to star with A.J. Green not expected to go in Week 8.
Insight: Sanu only had three catches for 54 yards last weekend, but he did see nine targets. Andy Dalton has looked his way often when Green has been sidelined as indicated by his 32 targets in the past three games.
A.J. Green, WR, CIN10/23/2014 1:24:00 PM
Description: Bengals receiver A.J. Green did practice Thursday after missing Wednesday's session, according to Geoff Hobson of bengals.com.
Insight: Green's fantasy owners should have another plan in place because it's not looking good for him to start in Week 8. Mohamed Sanu owners get a reprieve.
Reggie Wayne, WR, IND10/23/2014 1:19:00 PM
Description: Colts receiver Reggie Wayne (elbow) didn't practice Thursday, according to Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star.
Insight: Wayne has only posted fantasy-worthy numbers once this season and is more security blanket for Andrew Luck than fantasy asset. Expect him to miss one or two weeks with this injury.
Julio Jones, WR, ATL10/23/2014 11:57:00 AM
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones was limited in Wednesday's practice, but was a full participant in Thursday's session and should be in all fantasy lineups Sunday morning.
Insight: Many players take Wednesday's practice off and it's not a real indicator of whether a player is ready for Sunday. Jones and the Falcons face a Lions defense which has stubbornly yielded a league-low seven touchdown passes this season (tied with Baltimore).
Nate Washington, WR, TEN10/22/2014 9:27:00 PM
Description: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports teams have been calling the Titans about Nate Washington.
Insight: This likely just means the Titans would like to trade their wide receiver. Justin Hunter is the team's new No. 2 WR, and Washington is taking up cap and roster space. It is unlikely that Tennessee gets anyone to bite on his 4.8 million base salary since he can't even earn a starting role on the Titans.
Percy Harvin, WR, NYJ10/22/2014 3:04:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Percy Harvin is not expected to be a major factor for Week 8's matchup against Buffalo.
Insight: Coach Rex Ryan declared that it is "unrealistic" to expect Harvin to play 50 offensive snaps, without knowing the entire offense. He will likely handle kickoff and punt return duties, along with seeing around 20-to-25 snaps on the offensive side of the ball. Consider Harvin a WR4 until he is guarenteed more game action.
Vincent Jackson, WR, TAM10/22/2014 2:28:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson (ribs) did not practice on Wednesday.
Insight: Tampa Bay is seemingly playing it safe with Jackson, as he should be back at practice tomorrow. He is expected to be a full-go for Week 8 against Minnesota, and should be cosidered a WR2 for the matchup.
A.J. Green, WR, CIN10/22/2014 1:27:00 PM
Description: Bengals receiver A.J. Green was unable to practice during Wednesday's session.
Insight: There was hope that Green would return for Week 8, but that hope took a hit on Wednesday. Owners need to monitor his progress throughout the week.
Calvin Johnson, WR, DET10/22/2014 1:25:00 PM
Description: Lions receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. UPDATE: Johnson was able to get in a limited practice session on Wednesday, but is still unlikely to play, according to the Detroit Free Press.
Insight: Johnson traveled with the team to London, but there is a slim chance that he plays. Detroit has their bye during Week 9, and owners should hope that he returns for Week 10. In the meantime Golden Tate will continue to be a borderline WR1 for Sunday's tilt against the Falcons.
Rueben Randle, WR, NYG10/22/2014 11:20:00 AM
Description: Giants receiver Rueben Randle is expected to see more time in the slot, according to wide receiver coach Sean Ryan.
Insight: This is a good sign for fantasy owners, as Randle has seen close to 10 targets per game, over the past five weeks. Eli Manning loves to utilize his slot receiver, and if Randle does see more time there, his value could be as high as a WR2.
Trindon Holliday, WR, TAM10/21/2014 12:54:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay signed KR/WR Trindon Holliday to improve their return numbers.
Insight: Holliday returned a punt and a kickoff for a touchdown in each of the last two seasons for Denver. He was in the New York Giants camp this summer.
Hakeem Nicks, WR, IND10/21/2014 11:26:00 AM
Description: Colts wideout Hakeem Nicks could see an increase in targets and fantasy value if Reggie Wayne's elbow keeps him out of the lineup for the next game or two.
Insight: Nicks has been invisible of late, but would see more snaps. The more likely option, however, is Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener get more work.
Reggie Wayne, WR, IND10/21/2014 11:22:00 AM
Description: Colts receiver Reggie Wayne could miss up to a couple of weeks due to a left elbow issue, according to an rtv6 report.
Insight: Wayne caught just four for 15 yards in Sunday's 27-0 win. He's only posted fantasy-worthy numbers once this season and is more security blanket for Andrew Luck than fantasy asset.
Calvin Johnson, WR, DET10/21/2014 11:12:00 AM
Description: Lions receiver Calvin Johnson is in London with the team, but it's still no gaurantee that he'll play in Week 8.
Insight: With the Lions on bye in Week 9, it's more likely that he'll sit again this weekend to be 100 percent down the road.
Martavis Bryant, WR, PIT10/21/2014 11:08:00 AM
Description: Steelers rookie wideout Martavis Bryant made his NFL debut on Monday night against the Texans a memorable one by catching a 35-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter.
Insight: Bryant showed elite speed in running by the cornerback. Perhaps he'll become a force opposite Antonio Brown.
Antonio Brown, WR, PITHot10/21/2014 11:06:00 AM
Description: Steelers receiver Antonio Brown continued his streak of at least five catches, hauling in nine of 13 targets for 90 yards.
Insight: Brown's day would be considered pedestrian except for his touchdown pass to Lance Moore in the second quarter.
Andre Johnson, WR, HOU10/21/2014 11:01:00 AM
Description: Texans receiver Andre Johnson caught five balls for 77 yards.
Insight: Johnson is still the guy Ryan Fitzpatrick looks for first, but defenses key on him too and he's not quite as good as in past seasons.
DeAndre Hopkins, WR, HOU10/21/2014 10:59:00 AM
Description: Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins was busy Monday night, catching six of nine targets for 108 yards.
Insight: It was a nice bounce back after being invisible against Indianapolis in Week 6. He's a WR3, but can sometimes surprise with a big number.
Martavis Bryant, WR, PIT10/20/2014 7:33:00 PM
Description: Steelers rookie wideout Martavis Bryant is making his NFL debut on Monday night against the Texans.
Insight: The Steelers have grown impatient with Justin Brown, so Lance Moore moves up into 3-wide sets, and Bryant will be active. Moore and even WR2 Markus Wheaton have made costly mistakes too, so perhaps Bryant gets a chance to steal a few snaps in two-wide sets.
Damaris Johnson, WR, HOU10/20/2014 4:15:00 PM
Description: Former Eagles and now Texans wide receiver and kick returner Damaris Johnson saw a season-high three catches for 62 yards against Indianapolis and might see action with the offense again Monday night.
Insight: He's a solid return man and if you can get him in open space he's tough to pull down. He might be useful for the Texans in three-receiver packages, but fantasy owners in non-return leagues should steer clear.
Lance Moore, WR, PITCold10/20/2014 4:09:00 PM
Description: Steelers receiver Lance Moore hasn't caught more than one pas in any game this season.
Insight: Moore's 26-yards reception last week was for a touchdown, but he's totaled just three catches for 64 yards this season. The Steelers may turn to youth Monday night and see if Martavis Bryant can help out Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton.
Martavis Bryant, WR, PIT10/20/2014 4:06:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh rookie wideout Martavis Bryant could actually see the field tonight, according to Lisa Salters.
Insight: Bryant has been battling injuries and been buried at the bottom of the Steelers depth chart, but Justin Brown and Lance Moore haven't exactly been producing so Bryant might get a target or two. He won't be fantasy worthy, however. That's only for Antonio Brown and once in a while Markus Wheaton.
Emmanuel Sanders, WR, DEN10/20/2014 10:49:00 AM
Description: Receiver Emmanuel Sanders had his second consecutive poor yardage total, but did score to make his fantasy numbers more palatable.
Insight: Sanders has caught just three balls in each of the last two games, after averaging 8.6 recpetions and 119.3 yards for the previous three contests.
Wes Welker, WR, DEN10/20/2014 10:42:00 AM
Description: Broncos receiver Wes Welker caught his first touchdown pass of the season Sunday night against the 49ers.
Insight: Welker is the fourth option these days behind the "Thomas Brothers" and Emmanuel Sanders, so his fantasy value is limited.
Demaryius Thomas, WR, DENHot10/20/2014 10:40:00 AM
Description: Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas had another big day on Sunday night.
Insight: That's three huge days in a row since Wes Welker came back to play the slot and Thomas moved back to the outside. Sunday he caught eight of nine targets for 171 yards and two scores. That's 521 yards and five touchdowns in three weeks.
Stevie Johnson, WR, SFX10/20/2014 10:29:00 AM
Description: San Francisco wide receiver Stevie Johnson caught five for 79 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: Johnson has now scored in three of the past four games and he's caught five balls in each of the past two contests. He's becoming more comfortable in this offense, though with Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin, Brandon Lloyd and Vernon Davis he's got to share with a lot of other guys and his upside is limited.
Anquan Boldin, WR, SFX10/20/2014 10:27:00 AM
Description: San Francisco wideout Anquan Boldin caught seven of 10 targets for 50 yards, butdropped a sure touchdown.
Insight: When the 49ers need a big first-down catch they almost always look to wide receiver Anquan Boldin and he usually comes through, but with four quality receivers on this team, none is likely to break out and become an every game fantasy option.
James Jones, WR, OAK10/20/2014 10:22:00 AM
Description: Raiders receiver James Jones caught four of a team-leading eight targets for 35 yards.
Insight: Jones has scored double-digits in three of six weeks, but wasn't a big part of the game plan in this one.
Andre Holmes, WR, OAKCold10/20/2014 10:19:00 AM
Description: Typical of Raiders receiver Andre Holmes he followed up a big game by being the "Invisible Man."
Insight: Holmes had 121 yards and two score in Week 6, but just 34 yards on three catches in Week 7. He can't be trusted to produce on a consistent basis,
Michael Floyd, WR, ARI10/20/2014 10:14:00 AM
Description: Arizona wide receiver Michael Floyd's poor day was saved by a 33-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter.
Insight: Floyd has caught just 47 yards worth of passes in each of the past two games, but he's scored in each game so give fantasy owners double-digits.
Larry Fitzgerald, WR, ARI10/20/2014 10:12:00 AM
Description: Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald was dull on Sunday against Oakland, catching just four short balls for 21 yards.
Insight: Fitzgerald is no longer the Cardinals' deep threat, but he can still give fantasy owners solid production most of the time. Chalk this one up to not being needed to beat the Raiders.
Terrance Williams, WR, DAL10/20/2014 10:03:00 AM
Description: Cowboys receiver Terrance Williams was once again ignored for most of the game, but did manage to score to give his fantasy owners a respectable total.
Insight: Williams has scored in five of seven games this season which makes up for the fact that he's failed to crack 80 yards receiving in any game this season.
Dez Bryant, WR, DAL10/20/2014 10:00:00 AM
Description: Cowboys wideout Dez Bryant caught nine balls for 151 yards, but did get into the end zone.
Insight: It was a great comeback for fantasy owners considering he had just two receptions for 15 yards at halftime. After scoring in four consecutive games, Bryant has now gone two games without a touchdown catch.
Rueben Randle, WR, NYG10/20/2014 9:46:00 AM
Description: Giants receiver Rueben Randle led the Giants in targets on Sunday night against the Cowboys.
Insight: he didn't do much with them, managing just 74 yards and zero touchdowns. Odell Beckham appears to be Eli Manning's red zone target which limits Randle's fantasy upside.
Odell Beckham Jr., WR, NYGHot10/20/2014 9:44:00 AM
Description: Giants receiver Odell Beckham has made an immediate impact since finally getting to play.
Insight: Beckham and Eli Manning have already become a red zone item. Sunday he caught just four balls for 34 yards, but two went for scores. He has three touchdown receptions in three games. Now if he can just start seeing the ball a little more he could become a solid WR2.
Keenan Allen, WR, SDC10/20/2014 9:36:00 AM
Description: Chargers receiver Keenan Allen led the team with 10 targets, but ended up with a mediocre six receptions for 58 yards.
Insight: Allen has been a disappointment for all but one game this season and we're beginning to think last season was a fluke. With Malcom Floyd and Eddie Royal along with Antonio Gates, Allen has become "just another receiver" in the stable versus last season when he was "the guy."
Dwayne Bowe, WR, KAN10/20/2014 9:26:00 AM
Description: Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe finished Week 7 as the team's top targeted receiver with seven.
Insight: He caught five for 84 yards. After a first half in which no receiver caught more than one ball, Bowe broke away from the pack. He's still not a great fantasy option with 19 receptions for 279 yards and zero touchdowns.
Kelvin Benjamin, WR, CAR10/19/2014 7:33:00 PM
Description: Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin caught three passes for 61 yards and a touchdown on Sunday against the Packers.
Insight: Although it was a very disappointing day for the Panthers offense, Benjamin salvaged his fantasy day with a touchdown catch in the fourth quarter. Benjamin has five touchdowns through seven games in his rookie season.
Jordy Nelson, WR, GBP10/19/2014 7:32:00 PM
Description: Packers receiver Jordy Nelson continued his dominant play on Sunday.
Insight: Nelson started Week 7 fast with a 59-yard touchdown catch on the first drive. He was quiet for much of the remainder of the game, but he still had four catches, 80 yards and the score.
Randall Cobb, WR, GBP10/19/2014 7:31:00 PM
Description: Green Bay wideout Randall Cobb scored another touchdown in Sunday's win over Carolina.
Insight: He now has eight touchdowns in 2014. Cobb finished the day with six catches for 121 yards, on seven targets. He is a WR1 in nearly all formats.
Marques Colston, WR, NOS10/19/2014 7:17:00 PM
Description: Saints wide receiver Marques Colston led the team in catches, receiving yards and targets in Week 7 against the Lions.
Insight: Colston had six catches for 111 yards on 10 targets. He did not score, but fantasy owners will still take the production if Colston was in the lineup.
Golden Tate, WR, DET10/19/2014 7:15:00 PM
Description: Lions receiver Golden Tate had another huge game with Calvin Johnson sidelined in Week 7.
Insight: Tate finished with 10 catches for 154 yards and a touchdown, but his big 73-yard touchdown grab did not come until there was four minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. Over half his fantasy points came on one play.
Mike Wallace, WR, MIA10/19/2014 7:01:00 PM
Description: Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace caught his fifth touchdown of 2014.
Insight: Wallace has been one of the most consistent fantasy wide receivers this season. He had five catches for 46 yards against the Bears and scored again. He is a solid WR2 in a 12-team league.
Brandon Marshall, WR, CHI10/19/2014 7:00:00 PM
Description: Bears wideout Brandon Marshall caught six balls for 48 yards against the Dolphins.
Insight: Marshall had a huge size advantage over the Miami corners, but he and Alshon Jeffery could not take advantage. The two receivers combined for 57 receiving yards.
Greg Jennings, WR, MIN10/19/2014 6:43:00 PM
Description: Vikings wideout Greg Jennings led the team with six catches, seven targets and 77 yards on Sunday.
Insight: The Minnesota offense continues to frustrate fantasy owners. At least Norv Turner has figured out Jerick McKinnon is better than Mass Asiata, but he is still featuring Jennings more than Cordarrelle Patterson. That is fine with Jennings' owners, but for owners thinking about picking up Jennings, it is hard to start him with any confidence.
Sammy Watkins, WR, BUF10/19/2014 6:40:00 PM
Description: Bills rookie receiver Sammy Watkins caught nine passes for 122 yards against the Vikings in Week 7.
Insight: Owners were likely frustrated with Watkins' poor performance against New England last week, but he was stuck on Revis Island. Back on the main land now, Watkins lit up the Vikings cornerbacks. Kyle Orton and Watkins seem to have great chemistry and it is getting better every week.
Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, MIN10/19/2014 6:37:00 PM
Description: Vikings receiver Cordarrelle Patterson scored his first touchdown since Week 1.
Insight: That should be an encouraging sign, but since he still only received three touches and four targets, we are pretty much done with dealing with the headache that comes with Patterson. He is a tremendous talent, but the Vikings do not seem to care to feed him the ball.
Torrey Smith, WR, BAL10/19/2014 6:20:00 PM
Description: Ravens wideout Torrey Smith caught a late touchdown in a blowout victory to avoid another fantasy dud.
Insight: Smith finished with three catches, 81 yards and a touchdown for a solid fantasy day, but 39 of the yards and the score came with under three minutes left and Baltimore ahead by three scores. The Ravens threw the deep pass to Smith on fourth down because the team's long snapper was injured. Smith still has quite a bit of risk involved going forward.
Doug Baldwin, WR, SEAHot10/19/2014 6:20:00 PM
Description: Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin was rumored to be a target for Percy Harvin's anger.
Insight: With Harvin traded to the Jets, Baldwin excelled on the field as Seattle's No. 1 receiving target. He caught seven of 11 passes for 123 yards and a touchdown. Harvin had just 133 yards in receptions in five games.
Roddy White, WR, ATL10/19/2014 6:18:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Roddy White was not at all a decoy on Sunday against the Ravens.
Insight: In fact, he was the only worthy Falcons fantasy player to start. He had nine catches for 100 yards and a touchdown. White also had 15 targets, seven more than his buddy Julio Jones.
Steve Smith Sr, WR, BAL10/19/2014 6:16:00 PM
Description: Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. caught three passes for 67 yards.
Insight: He was kind of the forgotten man in the Ravens receiving core in Week 7, but he still put up a decent total for fantasy purposes.
Pierre Garcon, WR, WAS10/19/2014 5:59:00 PM
Description: Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon caught a 70-yard touchdown against the Titans in Week 7.
Insight: Garcon finished with five catches and 87 yards, but a vast majority of the yards came on the big touchdown grab. Garcon remains a high-upside WR2 no matter who is playing quarterback for the Redskins.
Kendall Wright, WR, TEN10/19/2014 5:58:00 PM
Description: Titans receiver Kendall Wright caught six passes for 68 yards and a touchdown against the Redskins in Week 7.
Insight: Wright has frustrated fantasy owners this season, but if owners have remained patient with him, he put up a solid fantasy day in Week 7. With this performance, Wright, at the very least, has kept his bench spot on your roster.
Allen Robinson, WR, JAC10/19/2014 5:40:00 PM
Description: Jaguars rookie receiver Allen Robinson had four catches for 60 yards and a touchdown against the Browns on Sunday.
Insight: Cecil Shorts still had more targets than Robinson, but the rookie had the more productive day, averaging 15 yards per catch versus Shorts' 4. Robinson is a FLEX possibility in deep leagues moving forward.
Andrew Hawkins, WR, CLE10/19/2014 5:38:00 PM
Description: Browns receiver Andrew Hawkins was the only worthy fantasy player for Cleveland on Sunday.
Insight: Hawkins had five catches for 112 yards against the Jaguars. He led the team with nine targets. Unfortunately, the rest of the offense struggled, so Hawkins did not have a shot at the end zone.
Denard Robinson, WR, JAC10/19/2014 5:37:00 PM
Description: Jaguars running back Denard Robinson rushed 22 times for 127 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the Browns.
Insight: The Jaguars likely believe they have found their answer to their running blues. Fantasy owners have the answer to who they should start out of the Jacksonville backfield moving forward.
T.Y. Hilton, WR, IND10/19/2014 5:21:00 PM
Description: Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton is hitting his stride midway through the 2014 season.
Insight: Hilton had seven catches for 107 yards after his huge performance last Thursday night. He is a must-start from here on out.
Mohamed Sanu, WR, CIN10/19/2014 5:19:00 PM
Description: Bengals receiver Mohamed Sanu was a big fantasy disappointment in Week 7 against the Colts.
Insight: Sanu had three catches for 54 yards. Without A.J. Green, owners were hoping for a huge day. It didn't help the Bengals were shutout.
DeSean Jackson, WR, WAS10/19/2014 3:30:00 PM
Description: Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson left the game for a short period of time due to a knee injury, but has returned.
Insight: Jackson has been dull, catching three of five targets for 49 yards at the start of the fourth quarter.
Harry Douglas, WR, ATL10/19/2014 12:10:00 PM
Description: Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas is inactive for Sunday's game in Baltimore.
Insight: For a second straight week, Devin Hester will be the No. 3 wide out, behind Julio Jones and Roddy White.
Kelvin Benjamin, WR, CAR10/19/2014 12:09:00 PM
Description: Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin has been cleared to play in Week 7 against the Packers and is active. UPDATE: Benjamin is active on Sunday.
Insight: The Panthers receiver is pretty much a must-start against the Packers. He scored his fourth touchdown last week on the road against the tough Bengals defense, and Green Bay will be without top cornerback Sam Shields and could also be missing No. 2 corner Tramon Williams, who is a game-time decision.
Jarrett Boykin, WR, GBP10/19/2014 12:07:00 PM
Description: Packers receiver Jarrett Boykin is active again in Week 7, but he's been surpassed by rookie Davante Adams.
Insight: Boykin has not had a very good start to the season due to injuries and being beaten out by Adams who will continue to run as the No. 3 receiver. Boykin has little fantasy value.
A.J. Green, WR, CIN10/19/2014 11:02:00 AM
Description: Bengals receiver A.J. Green has been ruled out for Week 7 against the Colts according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Insight: This was expected. Green has been pretty much insinuating all week that he would not play this Sunday.
Kelvin Benjamin, WR, CAR10/19/2014 10:31:00 AM
Description: Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin has been cleared to play in Week 7 against the Packers according to Ian Rapoport.
Insight: We will send out another update when the official inactive list comes out at about 12 ET, but all signs point to Benjamin suiting up. The Panthers receiver is pretty much a must-start against the Packers. He scored his fourth touchdown last week on the road against the tough Bengals defense, and Green Bay will be without top cornerback Sam Shields and could also be missing No. 2 corner Tramon Williams, who is a game-time decision.
Kelvin Benjamin, WR, CAR10/18/2014 4:59:00 PM
Description: Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin is expected to play on Sunday, according to The Charlotte Observer.
Insight: He traveled with the team to Green Bay, and barring any setbacks, Benjamin is expected to be full-go for Week 7. He is a WR2 this week against the Packers.
Andre Johnson, WR, HOU10/17/2014 7:21:00 PM
Description: Texans receiver Andre Johnson (anke) has been limited in practices all week.
Insight: He is still expected to play, and should be considered a WR2 for Week 7.
Percy Harvin, WR, NYJ10/17/2014 6:01:00 PM
Description: The Seahawks have traded Percy Harvin to the Jets for a conditional pick, according to Jay Glazer. UPDATE: The coniditional pick will be in the range from a second-to-fourth-round pick, according to John Clayton.
Insight: The timing is weird, as Harvin is dealing with a thigh injury, but it is a nice pickup for the Jets nonetheless. Harvin has not produced much from a fantasy standpoint, and his value takes even more of a hit with this move to New York.
Percy Harvin, WR, SEACold10/17/2014 4:40:00 PM
Description: The Seahawks Percy Harvin have put Percy Harvin on the injury report due to a thigh injury.
Insight: Harvin has only once totaled more than 50 combined yards in a game this season. At this point he's not worthy of a fantasy start. He has loads of talent, it's just not being used.
Kelvin Benjamin, WR, CAR10/17/2014 2:12:00 PM
Description: Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin returned to the practice field on Thursday (concussion symptoms) though he still must be cleared before he can play Sunday.
Insight: He should be considered questionable for Week 7, but this is at least headed in the right direction.
A.J. Green, WR, CIN10/17/2014 11:35:00 AM
Description: Bengals receiver A.J. Green did not practice again on Friday and fantasy owners must plan on being without him on Sunday.
Insight: Green and coach Marvin Lewis have contradicted each other with the player saying he is week-to-week and the coach trying to hide the fact that his star isn't an option for Week 7. Obviously the player knows his own health better than the coach.
Calvin Johnson, WR, DET10/17/2014 11:08:00 AM
Description: Coach Jim Caldwell Lions on receiver Calvin Johnson chances to play in Week 7 - "miracles can happen."
Insight: The translation for fantasy owners is get your backups in the lineup Megatron isn't playing. Yes, miracles can happen and you might hit the lottery tonight, but the odds are extemely tilted against you.
Danny Amendola, WR, NEP10/17/2014 9:58:00 AM
Description: Patriots receiver Danny Amendola has been a non-factor for most of the season and Thursday night was another example.
Insight: Amendola caught one pass for 19 yards and a score. He has just five catches for 42 yards this season and there is no indication that his workload is going to increase so fantasy owners can continue to ignore him unless Julian Edelman is injured.
Brandon LaFell, WR, NEP10/17/2014 9:56:00 AM
Description: Patriots receiver Brandon LaFell caught just four balls for 55 yards Thursday night against the Jets.
Insight: The excitement of Week 6's huge game against Buffalo (4-97-2) has quickly faded, but at least he's still involved in the offense. It's just going to be hard to figure out when he's going to go big.
Julian Edelman, WR, NEP10/17/2014 9:53:00 AM
Description: Patriots wideout Julian Edelman was given a solid nine targets, but caught just four for 44 yards.
Insight: He continues to be one of Tom Brady's go-to guys, but he's been extremely inconsistent this season with three games under 45 yards and four games over 80 yards.
Eric Decker, WR, NYJ10/17/2014 9:29:00 AM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker saw a team-high seven targets en route to his four-catch, 65-yard game.
Insight: Decker had Darrelle Revis on him for much of the night which is why he wasn't a great play.
Calvin Johnson, WR, DET10/16/2014 4:18:00 PM
Description: Lions receiver Calvin Johnson missed Thursday's practice and with his announcement of lingering pain yesterday we don't see him playing Sunday.
Insight: It's possible that with the team still winning football games (4-2 and leading the division), they won't rush him back and could even wait until after their Week 9 bye.
David Nelson, WR, NYJ10/16/2014 2:17:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver David Nelson (ankle) shouldn't keep him from being the No. 3 receiver behind Eric Decker and Jeremy Kerley.
Insight: That said, given how the Jets offense is playing he's probably not a good play in the rain against New England in Week 7.
Greg Salas, WR, NYJ10/16/2014 2:03:00 PM
Description: Jets wideout Greg Salas will miss Thursday's game against New England due to wrist and ankle injuries.
Insight: Salas has yet ro score or amass more than 60 yards or two receptions in a game, so isn't considered fantasy worthy even when healthy.
A.J. Green, WR, CIN10/16/2014 1:45:00 PM
Description: Bengals receiver A.J. Green did not practice again on Thursday and it seems it will take a miracle for him to be available this Sunday.
Insight: Green and coach Marvin Lewis continue to contradict each other as the receiver called himself week-to-week while Lewis said he was day-to-day. Don't count on Green playing in Week 7.
Kelvin Benjamin, WR, CAR10/16/2014 12:32:00 PM
Description: Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin did not practice on Wednesday due to dealing with concussion symptoms.
Insight: Our best guess is the injury stems from a big hit Benjamin took from Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict in the tie last Sunday. He should be considered questionable for Week 7.
