Fantasy NFL
Wide Receiver Player Notes
For The Last 15 Days
 
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.
Kelvin Benjamin, WR, CAR10/15/2014 3:42:00 PM
Description: Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin did not practice on Wednesday and the injury is not disclosed.
Insight: Our best guess is the injury stems from a big hit Benjamin took from Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict in the tie last Sunday. Benjamin exited the game after the hit but returned to score a touchdown. He is a high-upside WR2 for Week 7 against the Packers.
A.J. Green, WR, CIN10/15/2014 2:06:00 PM
Description: Bengals receiver A.J. Green did not practice on Wednesday according to Bengals.com
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.
Calvin Johnson, WR, DET10/15/2014 1:49:00 PM
Description: Lions receiver Calvin Johnson told Bleacher Report he will be back when he feels he can do everything he has to to play at a high level.
Insight: Bleacher Report also reported Johnson is not there yet. He is going to try and play this week, but coach Jim Caldwell has put out the idea of shutting down Johnson through the Lions' Week 9 bye. In the long-run, that is Detroit's best option.
Brandon Tate, WR, CIN10/15/2014 8:22:00 AM
Description: Bengals wideout Brandon Tate was an active receiving target in Week 6 with star wideout A.J. Green sidelined by injury.
Insight: Green is likely out again in Week 7 making Tate a viable low-end option. He caught four balls for 38 yards and a touchdown against Carolina in Week 6.
Markus Wheaton, WR, PITCold10/15/2014 8:16:00 AM
Description: Steelers wide receiver Markus Wheaton has failed to become the big-time receiver oppostire Antonio Brown that fantasy owners had hoped for.
Insight: It is a very friendly matchup, so in bigger leagues, fantasy owners should start Wheaton. Since a six-catch, 97-yard season opener, he's failed to crack the 60-yard mark in any game. Like the rest of the Steelers offense of late, he's let fantasy owners down.
Jason Avant, WR, CARCold10/15/2014 8:08:00 AM
Description: Carolina wideout Jason Avant should not be on any fantasy rosters at this time.
Insight: Avant is the fourth option ... at best behind Kevin Benjamin, Greg Olsen and Jerricho Cotchery and even Cotchery isn't fantasy worthy. In the last four games, Avant hasn't cracked the 50-yard mark.
Jerricho Cotchery, WR, CARCold10/15/2014 8:06:00 AM
Description: Wideout Jerricho Cotchery was inactive for Week 3 against the Steelers and might as well have been inactive for the other five weeks to far this season..
Insight: Cotchery has yet to score and his best performance was a five-catch, 80 yard day against Baltimore. Fantasy owners should avoid him as Kelvin Benjamin and Greg Olsen are doing all the heavy lifting for the Panthers passing game.
Kenny Stills, WR, NOSCold10/15/2014 8:03:00 AM
Description: Saints receiver Kenny Stills has become a non-factor this season.
Insight: Rookie wide receiver Brandin Cooks is the third receiver with Marques Colston and Jimmy Graham. Stills might see increased usage while Graham is sidelined, but its not likely to be enough to make him fantasy worthy.
Brandin Cooks, WR, NOS10/15/2014 7:59:00 AM
Description: Saints rookie wideout Brandin Cooks hasn't turned his targets into much fantasy production.
Insight: After an opening day seven-catch, 77-yard, one touchdown performance, Cooks has failed to return to the end zone. He did have nine catches against Tampa Bay in Week 5, but for just 56 yards. He's seeing a lot of short passes and has yet to break out with a big run after catch.
Kevin Ogletree, WR, DET10/14/2014 8:42:00 PM
Description: Wide receiver Kevin Ogletree signed with the New York Giants.
Insight: New York needs wide receiver help after Victor Cruz tore his patellar tendon on Sunday night. Ogletree caught 13 passes in 12 games last season with Detroit. He doesn't have any fantasy value at the moment.
Victor Cruz, WR, NYG10/14/2014 5:55:00 PM
Description: The Giants officially placed wide receiver Victor Cruz on injured reserve to end his season.
Insight: Cruz tore his right patellar tendon on Sunday night against the Eagles. He should be ready for training camp next year, but there is a high chance that Cruz will never be the same since the injury is going to affect his cutting ability. Rookie Odell Beckham Jr. will start in place of Cruz.
Marvin Jones, WR, CIN10/14/2014 11:52:00 AM
Description: Bengals receiver Marvin Jones was thought to be close to returning a few weeks ago, but hasn't gotten better and will see a specialist this week.
Insight: Jones suffered a setback to his ankle a week and a half ago. He has not played yet this season. The receiver who caught 10 touchdowns last season may end up not playing at all this season if surgery is required.
Brian Quick, WR, STL10/14/2014 12:34:00 AM
Description: Rams third-year receiver Brian Quick had been the top target for quarterback Austin Davis and an underrated fantasy asset, but not Monday night.
Insight: Quick was mostly invisible catching one of four passes for just 10 yards. Very disappointing.
Michael Crabtree, WR, SFX10/14/2014 12:20:00 AM
Description: 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree saw eight targets, but caught just three for 49 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: Crabtree owners have been losing their trust in him, but he looked healthy tonight. It's just the 49ers have more targets than ever to throw to and Crabtree doesn't dominate Colin Kaepernick's view anymore.
Anquan Boldin, WR, SFX10/14/2014 12:16:00 AM
Description: When the 49ers need a big first-down catch they almost always look to wide receiver Anquan Boldin.
Insight: Monday night was no different and he caught seven of nine targets for 94 yards and a touchdown. It was his best night of the season as it was for his quarterback.
Justin Hunter, WR, TEN10/13/2014 6:39:00 PM
Description: Titans receiver Justin Hunter led the team with 77 receiving yards in Week 6 against the Jaguars.
Insight: Hunter seems to have some chemistry with backup quarterback Charlie Whitehurst. The pair hit a big touchdown against the Browns in Week 5 and Hunter led the Titans in Week 6. Hunter is a viable WR3 in deep leagues with Whitehurst at quarterback.
Brice Butler, WR, OAK10/13/2014 6:27:00 PM
Description: Raiders receiving Brice Butler had three catches for 64 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Chargers.
Insight: It was a coming out party for the Raiders' passing game. Butler was one of three Raiders receivers with at least 50 yards and a touchdown. Oakland will have to continue to throw to win a game this season, but Butler is still not a viable fantasy option.
Brandon LaFell, WR, NEP10/13/2014 6:16:00 PM
Description: Patriots receiver Brandon LaFell caught four passes for 97 yards and two touchdowns against the Bills in Week 6.
Insight: Tom Brady is back, so the Patriots recieving game is relevant again, but Brady is spreading the ball around so much, it is hard to predict who will score big when. Rob Gronkowski is the only viable fantasy option in the New England receiving core.
Jarvis Landry, WR, MIA10/13/2014 6:10:00 PM
Description: Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry led the team with six receptions, 75 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Packers.
Insight: Mike Wallace had more targets, but Landry surprisingly caught more passes and went for more yards. Each receiver had one touchdown. Wallace is still the better fantasy receiver going forward, but keep an eye on Landry.
Allen Robinson, WR, JAC10/13/2014 6:05:00 PM
Description: Jaguars rookie receiver Allen Robinson finished second on the team with nine targets in Week 6 against the Titans.
Insight: Robinson caught eight of those targets for 68 yards. The Jaguars were much more effective throwing than running on Sunday, so expect Robinson to continue to be a decent FLEX play in deep leagues.
Pierre Garcon, WR, WAS10/13/2014 5:51:00 PM
Description: Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon continued his inconsistent play on Sunday versus Arizona.
Insight: He had only four catches for 31 yards, but did manage to find the end zone. Garcon has been a hit-or-miss option this season, and should be considered a WR3 moving forward.
Emmanuel Sanders, WR, DEN10/13/2014 5:49:00 PM
Description: Receiver Emmanuel Sanders was the forgotten man in the Broncos receiving game on Sunday against the Jets.
Insight: Unless it is a close game, it is hard for Peyton Manning to share the ball enough with all his weapons. Demaryius Thomas had 10 catches, 124 yards and a touchdown, Julius Thomas caught two touchdowns and Ronnie Hillman ran 24 times for 100 yards. Sanders was third on the team with three receptions and 38 yards.
Jermaine Kearse, WR, SEA10/13/2014 5:48:00 PM
Description: Seattle wide receiver Jermaine Kearse led the Seahawks in receiving yards against Dallas.
Insight: He had three catches for 62 yards, on seven targets. Kearse is still only a WR4, for now.
Miles Austin, WR, CLE10/13/2014 5:39:00 PM
Description: Browns wide receiver Miles Austin had two catches for 29 yards against the Steelers in Week 6.
Insight: Brian Hoyer completed just eight passes, so that isn't exactly surprising Austin had two catches. With so few completions and three of them going to Jordan Cameron, Austin and the rest of the receiving core did not do much.
Randall Cobb, WR, GBP10/13/2014 5:37:00 PM
Description: Green Bay wideout Randall Cobb scored another touchdown in Sunday's win over Miami.
Insight: He now has seven touchdowns in 2014. Cobb finished the day with five catches for 58 yards, on seven targets. Consider him a borderline WR1.
Kelvin Benjamin, WR, CAR10/13/2014 5:31:00 PM
Description: Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin scored another touchdown on Sunday.
Insight: He now has four touchdowns on the year, and is clearly Cam Newton's number-one target. Owners who gambled with drafting Benjamin, have it paying off in a big way.
Sammy Watkins, WR, BUF10/13/2014 5:29:00 PM
Description: Bills rookie receiver Sammy Watkins caught just two passes for 27 yards in Week 6.
Insight: After seven catches in Kyle Orton's first start, Watkins was pretty disappointing as he failed to score three fantasy points. Who knows which receiver Kyle Orton will favor next week. On a positive note, Watkins could have struggled having to face Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis. Next week's matchup with the Vikings should be easier.
Robert Woods, WR, BUF10/13/2014 5:28:00 PM
Description: Bills receiver Robert Woods was clearly Kyle Orton's favorite receiver in Week 6 against New England.
Insight: Orton favored Sammy Watkins in Week 5 versus Detroit as he led the team with seven catches, but Woods led Buffalo with seven receptions this Sunday. Woods also had 78 yards and a touchdown.
Greg Jennings, WR, MIN10/13/2014 5:16:00 PM
Description: Vikings wideout Greg Jennings had only 33 yards on Sunday.
Insight: Jennings produced only three catches as well, and is more than a WR4 moving forward.
Torrey Smith, WR, BAL10/13/2014 5:15:00 PM
Description: Ravens wideout Torrey Smith had four catches for 51 yards and two touchdowns in Week 6 against the Buccaneers.
Insight: Finally, the other Smith did something in the Ravens offense. Smith had a season-high in catches and was three yards shy of a season-high in yards per game this season. Smith only had one touchdown catch in the first five games, so it was great to see him score twice as well. This, however, is likely an aberration as opposed to a trend setter. Joe Flacco is not going to pass for five touchdowns again.
Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, MIN10/13/2014 5:13:00 PM
Description: Vikings receiver Cordarrelle Patterson had only two catches for 16 yards Sunday against Detroit.
Insight: Everyone's favorite breakout candidate has failed to deliver. Patterson has zero receiving touchdowns on the season, and with so much uncertainty in Minnesota, owners need to consider benching him, until we see production.
Golden Tate, WR, DET10/13/2014 5:08:00 PM
Description: Lions receiver Golden Tate caught seven passes in Sunday's win over the Vikings.
Insight: Owners were hoping for more than the 44 yards he produced, with Calvin Johnson sidelined. Tate did manage 12 targets, and with the potential for Johnson to miss even more time, Tate is a fine WR2 option.
Vincent Jackson, WR, TAM10/13/2014 5:01:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson had a decent game Sunday against Baltimore.
Insight: He was iffy coming in with sore ribs, but managed four catches for 66 yards, in a blowout loss. Jackson did have a team-high 13 targets, and should be considered a low-end WR2 moving forward.
Jordan Matthews, WR, PHI10/13/2014 4:57:00 PM
Description: Eagles rookie receiver Jordan Matthews had four catches Sunday night against the Giants.
Insight: He totaled 50 yards on six targets, and has become a reliable option for Nick Foles. Matthews' impact on the field does not necessarily translate over to fantasy production, but he should be considered a low-end WR3. With bye weeks continuing through Week 12, there are far worse options out there.
Rueben Randle, WR, NYG10/13/2014 4:48:00 PM
Description: Giants receiver Rueben Randle led the Giants in receiving on Sunday night against the Eagles.
Insight: It was nothing to cry home about, as he totaled five catches for 58 yards. Randle did accumulate nine targets, and with Victor Cruz out for the season, he will be an important piece for New York, moving forward.
A.J. Green, WR, CIN10/13/2014 4:30:00 PM
Description: Bengals receiver A.J. Green is doubtful for Week 7 as we hear conflicting views from player and coach.
Insight: Green said he expected to miss Week 7, but coach Marvin Lewis said he "has a shot" to suit up. Sounds like coach-speak to try and confuse the opponents. His absence l,ast Sunday turned Mohamed Sanu into a fantasy stud.
Odell Beckham Jr., WR, NYG10/13/2014 4:23:00 PM
Description: Giants receiver Odell Beckham is going to have a much bigger role than expected with the loss of Victory Cruz to injury.
Insight: Beckham was expected to be the No. 3 guy in three wide receiver sets, but not he'll start across from Rueben Randle and he'll need to produce in his first season.
Victor Cruz, WR, NYG10/13/2014 4:22:00 PM
Description: Giants coach Tom Coughlin has confirmed that receiver Victor Cruz has a torn patella tendon which will require season-ending surgery.
Insight: Rookie Odell Beckham Jr. will have to step up quickly to fill the void.
Kenny Britt, WR, STL10/13/2014 1:28:00 PM
Description: Rams wide receiver Kenny Britt did not practice on Friday but was out there Saturday and is expected to start Monday night.
Insight: Britt is nursuing a knee issue, but even when healthy he's not the receiver to have in your lineup. You want Brian Quick (21-322-3).
James Jones, WR, OAK10/13/2014 11:19:00 AM
Description: Raiders receiver James Jones caught five of seven targets for 56 yards and a score.
Insight: The touchdown was on a perfectly thrown ball by Derek Carr that only Jones could catch. We'd like to see more of this. Jones is worth considering as a flex option.
Andre Holmes, WR, OAKHot10/13/2014 11:16:00 AM
Description: Raiders receiver Andre Holmes busted out with a four-catch, 121-yard, two touchdown effort.
Insight: The 6-4, 210-pound Holmes had 74 yards and a score in Week 4, so we like the direction he's headed. In his three seasons we haven't seen much consistency from Holmes, but we like the performance over the past two games. He worth watching.
Keenan Allen, WR, SDCCold10/13/2014 11:09:00 AM
Description: Chargers receiver Keenan Allen did nothing for a second straight weekend.
Insight: Allen has been a disappointment for all but one game this season and we're beginning to think last season was a fluke. Stay tuned.
Malcom Floyd, WR, SDC10/13/2014 11:06:00 AM
Description: San Diego receiver Malcom Floyd cracked the 100-yard mark for the first time since September 2013.
Insight: We're not sold on him because of the one good game against Oakland, but if he can show us something again next week we might consider him in a flex role.
Roddy White, WR, ATLCold10/13/2014 10:59:00 AM
Description: Falcons receiver Roddy White has become a high-priced decoy.
Insight: White has yet to crack 75 yards receiving in a game this season despite averaging eight targets per game.
Julio Jones, WR, ATL10/13/2014 10:57:00 AM
Description: Falcons receiver Julio Jones was targeted 12 times, but caught just four for 68 yards.
Insight: Jones seems to be in a pattern of producing big games every other week and this was an off week. Look for a bounce back game against Baltimore.
Brandon Marshall, WR, CHI10/13/2014 10:43:00 AM
Description: Bears wideout Brandon Marshall caught six balls for 113 yards.
Insight: It was Marshall's first 100-yard day of the season after hitting the mark six times last season.
Alshon Jeffery, WR, CHI10/13/2014 10:42:00 AM
Description: Bears wideout Alshon Jeffery caught five balls for a team-high 136 yards.
Insight: Jeffery and teammate Brandon Marshall both went over the 100-yard mark for the first time this season.
Michael Floyd, WR, ARI10/13/2014 10:38:00 AM
Description: Arizona wide receiver Michael Floyd's day was saved by a 20-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter.
Insight: Floyd caught just three balls for 27 yards over the final three quarters. We've come to expect more, but he still managed double digit fantasy points.
Larry Fitzgerald, WR, ARI10/13/2014 10:37:00 AM
Description: Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald led Arizona in receiving with 98 yards and a score on six receptions.
Insight: Fitzgerald obviously enjoyed the return of Carson Palmer. He's no longer the Cardinals' deep threat, but he can still give fantasy owners solid production.
DeSean Jackson, WR, WAS10/13/2014 10:28:00 AM
Description: Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson has become and all-or-nothing guy and Sunday against Arizona was a good day..
Insight: Jackson caught just three balls, but totaled 115 yards and a touchdown thanks to a 64-yard strike early in the second quarter.
Percy Harvin, WR, SEACold10/13/2014 10:22:00 AM
Description: The Seahawks Percy Harvin continues to be more decoy than productive receiver.
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.
Terrance Williams, WR, DAL10/13/2014 10:16:00 AM
Description: Cowboys receiver Terrance Williams saw just two targets, but did turn them into 70 yards.
Insight: Williams didn't score which is just the second time this season that he came up empty. That's not uncommon against the Seahawks secondary.
Dez Bryant, WR, DAL10/13/2014 10:15:00 AM
Description: Cowboys wideout Dez Bryant caught just four passes for 63 yards against Seattle.
Insight: Bryant string of four straight games with a touchdown catch came to an end, but he's still a fantasy stud.
Riley Cooper, WR, PHI10/13/2014 10:01:00 AM
Description: Eagles receiver Riley Cooper was targeted a team-high seven times, but his five receptions for 59 yards won't excite fantasy owners.
Insight: The Eagles two touchdown passes went to tight ends Zach Ertz and James Casey, but at least Cooper was more involved than in past games.
Jeremy Maclin, WR, PHI10/13/2014 9:59:00 AM
Description: Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin was a non-factor in Sunday's game against the Giants, catching just two of three targets for 16 yards.
Insight: Maclin has been Foles' favorite target for most of the season and we suspect this was just a product of the Giants defense.
Victor Cruz, WR, NYG10/12/2014 10:36:00 PM
Description: Giants receiver Victor Cruz went down in a heap after attempting to catch a pass from Eli Manning in the end zone and the early indications are that he has a torn patella tendon, per Michelle Tafoya.
Insight: The Giants will need for rookie Odell Beckham Jr. to step up to replace him opposite Rueben Randle.
Mike Wallace, WR, MIA10/12/2014 6:44:00 PM
Description: Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace scored his fourth touchdown of 2014.
Insight: He chipped in five catches for 67 yards, as well. Wallace has bounced back nicely this season, and should be considered a WR3 with upside, moving forward.
Jordy Nelson, WR, GBP10/12/2014 6:39:00 PM
Description: Packers receiver Jordy Nelson continued his dominant play on Sunday.
Insight: He racked up nine catches for 107 yards and a touchdown, on 16 targets. Randall Cobb chipped in five receptions for 58 yards and a touchdown. However, Nelson is clearly Aaron Rodgers' favorite target, and there is no reason for owners to feel his monster season will not continue.
Antonio Brown, WR, PIT10/12/2014 6:30:00 PM
Description: Steelers receiver Antonio Brown had another big game.
Insight: Brown totaled seven catches for 118 yards, and continues to be a steady WR1 this season.
Julian Edelman, WR, NEP10/12/2014 6:22:00 PM
Description: Julian Edelman had nine catches for 91 yards on Sunday.
Insight: He continues to be on of Tom Brady's go-to guys. Edelman will be a solid WR2, as we move forward.
Eric Decker, WR, NYJ10/12/2014 6:08:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker scored a touchdown against his former team.
Insight: He had six receptions for 54 yards, on 10 targets. If Decker can stay healthy, he will be a WR3, as a result of the Jets' poor quarterback play.
Demaryius Thomas, WR, DEN10/12/2014 6:05:00 PM
Description: Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas had another big day on Sunday.
Insight: After totaling 226 last week, Thomas was back at it, with 10 receptions for 124 yards, and a touchdown. He now has 18 catches, 350 yards, and two touchdowns over the pass two weeks. Julius Thomas added two touchdowns for Denver, as well.
Cecil Shorts III, WR, JAC10/12/2014 5:56:00 PM
Description: Jaguars top receiver Cecil Shorts had a nice game in his return to action.
Insight: He has been in and out of the lineup with a hamstring injury, through the first five weeks. However, Shorts seemed to be healthy on Sunday, as he produced 10 catches for 103 yards, on 16 targets.
Mohamed Sanu, WR, CIN10/12/2014 5:51:00 PM
Description: Bengals receiver Mohamed Sanu was fantastic with A.J. Green unable to play.
Insight: He had 11 catches for 120 yards and one score, on 15 targets. Even when Green returns, Sanu will be a borderline WR2.
Mike Evans, WR, TAM10/12/2014 5:33:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay rookie receiver Mike Evans scored a touchdown in his return to action.
Insight: He missed Week 5, but looked healthy, and totaled four catches for 55 yards, along with the score. Evans will be a WR3 moving forward.
Steve Smith Sr, WR, BAL10/12/2014 5:27:00 PM
Description: Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. continued his stellar play this season.
Insight: After a down game in Week 5, Smith was back at it, with five catches for 110 yards, and a touchdown. He has been one of the biggest, pleasant surprises in fantasy football, in 2014.
Mike Evans, WR, TAM10/12/2014 12:28:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay rookie receiver Mike Evans (groin) is active.
Insight: After missing Week 5, Evans is back in the fold, and should be considered a WR3 today against the Ravens.
Vincent Jackson, WR, TAM10/12/2014 12:26:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson (ribs) is active against Baltimore.
Insight: He missed a couple days of practiced, but returned on Friday. Jackson will be a WR2 today.
Mohamed Sanu, WR, CINHot10/12/2014 12:21:00 PM
Description: Bengals receiver Mohamed Sanu should be the Bengals No. 1 receiver in Week 6 with A.J. green sidelined.
Insight: Sanu has been involed this season even with Green around. He's caught 17 balls for 234 yards and a pair of scores. he's also 2-for-2 as a passer for 68 yards and a touchdown (158.3 passer rating).
Calvin Johnson, WR, DET10/12/2014 12:17:00 PM
Description: Lions receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle) is officially inactive against Minnesota.
Insight: This was expected, as owners will hope for a quick recovery. Golden Tate gets a bump in value for the day.
Eric Decker, WR, NYJ10/12/2014 12:12:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker is active for Week 6 against his old teammates the Broncos.
Insight: After sitting out Week 5, Decker has been targeting this game and will be on the field. Whether he can play the entire 60 minutes is another question as is whether he can be effective versus a top-10 passing defense.
Jarrett Boykin, WR, GBP10/12/2014 12:08:00 PM
Description: Packers receiver Jarrett Boykin is inactive again in Week 6.
Insight: Boykin has not had a very good start to the season due to injuries and being beaten out by rookie Davante Adamswho will continue to run as the No. 3 receiver.
A.J. Green, WR, CIN10/12/2014 12:05:00 PM
Description: Bengals receiver A.J. Green who was carted off the practice field Wednesday, after appearing to aggravate his pre-existing toe injury is not ready to go and is inactive for Sunday's game.
Insight: His absence will boost Mohamed Sanu and Brandon Tate's fantasy value . Marvin Jones is also inactive.
Mike Williams, WR, BUF10/12/2014 11:30:00 AM
Description: Bills wide receiver Mike Williams will not play Sunday.
Insight: Robert Woods will continue to start opposite Sammy Watkins. Williams had just one catch for eight yards last week and fantasy owners can ignore him.
Marvin Jones, WR, CIN10/11/2014 10:23:00 AM
Description: Bengals receiver Marvin Jones has been ruled out for Week 6 against the Panthers.
Insight: Jones suffered a setback to his ankle a week and a half ago. He has not played yet this season.
Kenny Britt, WR, STL10/10/2014 7:56:00 PM
Description: Rams wide receiver Kenny Britt did not practice on Friday according to ESPN.
Insight: Britt is nursuing a knee issue, which had not yet been reported on the team's injury report. Britt is now in danger of missing Monday night's game. Check his status on Saturday.
Vincent Jackson, WR, TAM10/10/2014 7:40:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson finally practiced on Friday but in limited fashion and is questionable for Week 6.
Insight: Jackson is still expected to start against the Ravens this Sunday. Fellow receiver Mike Evans is also hoping to be on the field after missing last week.
DeAndre Hopkins, WR, HOUCold10/10/2014 9:46:00 AM
Description: Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins was a non-factor Thursday night, seeing just two targets and catching one for 12 yards.
Insight: That was a bit disappointing after Hopkins had shown us so much over the first five games. Hopkins is usually a WR3 option, with WR2 upside, but not Thursday.
Andre Johnson, WR, HOU10/10/2014 9:44:00 AM
Description: There were questions about Texans receiver Andre Johnson health heading into Thursday's game, but Johnson answered then with a solid game.
Insight: Johnson caught seven of 12 targets for 99 yards and a touchdown, but a costly fumble in the fourth quarter cost his team a chance at a comeback win.
Reggie Wayne, WR, IND10/10/2014 9:40:00 AM
Description: Colts receiver Reggie Wayne saw a team-high nine targets, but didn't produce much in the way of fantasy points.
Insight: Wayne caught just four for 35 yards. Thursday was Hilton's night and fantasy owners should respect that Hilton is now the team's deep threat with Wayne the possession receiver.
T.Y. Hilton, WR, IND10/10/2014 9:37:00 AM
Description: Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton exploded for the first time this season, posted nine catches for 223 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: It was Hilton's first touchdown reception of the season, though he's caught at least five balls in all six games. The yardage total was one short of the franchise record held by Raymond Berry.
Percy Harvin, WR, SEA10/9/2014 7:57:00 PM
Description: The Seahawks added Percy Harvin to the injury report on Thursday as he missed practice according to Seahawks.com.
Insight: This is never good news, but we do not believe Harvin will miss Week 6 against the Cowboys. Monitor his status through the weekend, but for now, he is a viable WR2.
Andre Johnson, WR, HOU10/9/2014 7:32:00 PM
Description: Texans receiver Andre Johnson is active for Week 6 against the Colts.
Insight: Johnson hasn't had a very good season as DeAndre Hopkins has become the No. 1 receiver option in Houston, but if you so desire to play Johnson, he will be on the field Thursday.
Michael Crabtree, WR, SFXCold10/9/2014 5:53:00 PM
Description: 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree insists his foot is not the issue according to CSN Bay Area.
Insight: Fantasy owners would rather his foot be the issue because the alternative would be the 49ers are just not using him. Crabtree only played on 42-of-71 snaps on Sunday, so that is a bit unusual. He played in nearly 87 percent of his team's snaps in Weeks 2 and 3. Crabtree will be active for Monday's game against the Rams, but owners are losing their trust in him.
Calvin Johnson, WR, DET10/9/2014 3:54:00 PM
Description: Lions receiver Calvin Johnson said he is dealing with a high-ankle sprain and missed another practice.
Insight: He added that he "hopes" to play in Week 6's contest against the Minnesota Vikings. We have heard this before. Even if he plays will he be a decoy again. Better to sit an not tempt fantasy owners to start him.
Vincent Jackson, WR, TAM10/9/2014 3:48:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson did not practice Wednesday or Thursday with a rib issue.
Insight: Its still not thought to be a threat to his playing Sunday, but check for updates on Friday's practice.
Harry Douglas, WR, ATL10/9/2014 1:35:00 PM
Description: Falcons No. 3 wideout Harry Douglas missed last Sunday and has yet to practice this week, making him questionable for the Bears game.
Insight: Devin Hester will be used in the Douglas No. 3 role, behind Julio Jones and Roddy White.
A.J. Green, WR, CIN10/9/2014 12:02:00 PM
Description: Bengals receiver A.J. Green was was carted off the practice field Wednesday, after appearing to aggravate his pre-existing toe injury and according to Ian Rapoport is not expected to play Sunday.
Insight: He is now doubtful for Week 6 and fantasy owners should make alternate plans. His absence would boost Mohamed Sanu's fantasy value and Marvin Jones if he makes it onto the field.
Denarius Moore, WR, OAK10/8/2014 9:29:00 PM
Description: Raiders interim coach Tony Sparano said receiver Denarius Moore has a "clean slate" after he was scratched in the Raiders' last game according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
Insight: Moore has had a brutal start to 2014 with 60 receiving yards and no touchdowns on 20 targets. Moore also dropped a pass that Vince Wilfork intercepted to seal a victory in Week 3. Even though he might play this week, Moore doesn't appear to be fantasy worthy.
Sammy Watkins, WR, BUF10/8/2014 8:10:00 PM
Description: Bills rookie receiver Sammy Watkins is no longer on the Week 6 injury report.
Insight: Watkins is fully recovered from his rib injury according to ESPN. Watkins, however, has a tough matchup going up against Darrelle Revis and the Patriots this week.
Eric Decker, WR, NYJ10/8/2014 2:56:00 PM
Description: Jets receiver Eric Decker returned to practice on Wednesday.
Insight: It was a limited session, but is still a positive sign. After sitting out Week 5, Decker is now on pace to start Week 6 against Denver.
Vincent Jackson, WR, TAM10/8/2014 2:28:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson did not practice Wednesday for undisclosed reasons.
Insight: This is a new development, so it could mean nothing, as it is early in the practice week. However, make sure you check for updates on Jackson, as the week progresses.
Mike Evans, WR, TAM10/8/2014 2:26:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay rookie receiver Mike Evans returned to practice on Wednesday.
Insight: He was limited to individual drills, but this is good news nonetheless. Evans was not expected back until after Tampa Bay's Week 7 bye, but now will have a great chance to play this week against the Ravens.
A.J. Green, WR, CIN10/8/2014 2:22:00 PM
Description: Bengals receiver A.J. Green was was carted off the practice field Wednesday, after appearing to aggravate his preexisting toe injury.
Insight: It seems he did it while stretching, and according to Coley Harvey, Green threw off his shoe in disgust, and hopped onto the cart. He is now extremely questionable for Week 6. We will update Green's status once we know more.

Description: Lions receiver Calvin Johnson said he is dealing with a high-ankle sprain.
Insight: He added that he hopes to play in Week 6's contest against the Minnesota Vikings. However, it may be smart for him to take a week off. Johnson has acted as a decoy the past two weeks, and it would be worthwhile for owners to deal with one week of him being inactive, if it means he will be completely healthy, after.
