Wide Receivers

Start 'Em:
Wide Receivers Who Will Outperform Relative To Their Draft Position And Recent Hype

Dwayne Bowe v. DEN
Even with some of the worst quarterbacking in the league, Bowe has quietly posted double-digit fantasy points in every game. Now, with the superior Huard behind center and facing the wimpy Broncos air defense, Bowe just might have a shot at top ten numbers.

Santana Moss @ DAL
Moss is too small to be a standout West Coast (Ohio?) Offense wide receiver. No way, no how. Just keep him in your lineup until the naysayers shut up. The dude is fantasy gold and the Dallas corners arenít fast enough to keep up with him.

Lance Moore v. SF
Into the void left by Colston and Shockey steps Lance Moore (a name sure to be shared by a pornstar somewhere). Moore caught all seven passes thrown his way against the Broncos and is sure to be targeted often against the Niners. Solid WR#3 this week with good potential to be WR#2.

Jerramy Stevens v. GB
Big game last week, this week who knows? Green Bay isnít resilient against tight ends and thereís little chance Griese will be airing it out as much as last Sunday. Still, if youíre hurting for a bye week TE, this might not be a bad roll of the dice.

Josh Reed @ STL
This is less an endorsement of Reedís abilities (a career soon to be forgotten) and more an indictment of the Rams piss-poor defense. The Bills will have their way with the Rams, and Reed, who always has a handful of targets, should collect enough points to make him a viable number three.

Braylon Edwards @ CIN
If Anderson has a good game, which he must, then Edwards and Winslow will too. Edwards, who has been dropping passes and failing to gain separation, should put up at least seventy-yards and a touch. If he doesnít, well, the ramifications are too horrendous to consider for this third-fourth round pick.

Bench 'Em:
Wide Receivers Who Will Under Perform Relative To Their Draft Position And Recent Hype

Chad Ocho Cinco v. CLE
Heís got a bad wing. His stablemate will be getting the looks.

Hines Ward v. BAL
Benís hurt, the big defenses like Baltimore have corralled Ward this year, and the Steelers are without their star RB. This adds up to third WR numbers.

Billy Miller v. SF
Shockey goes down and below-average TE Miller steps in (but not up). The Niners hold TEs down. If you were looking for a serviceable WW TE, keep looking.

Laveranues Coles v. ARI
Colesí production has increased every game but this week is the Cards, who havenít let much transpire through the air. He might be finally getting healthyóif he does put up good numbers, the prognosis is good moving forward. I wouldnít start his compatriot Stuckey either.

Bernard Berrian @ TEN
Showed signs of life last week with Frerotte at the helm but against the Titans only expect low WR#2 numbers at the very best.
