Wide Receivers

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

Anthony Fasano v. SD
Paisano has been the picture of inconsistency, great one week and non-existent the next. Now he faces the Bolts, who even made Dante Rosario a (ff) household name. Heís good for a touchdown.

Bobby Engram @ NYG
Engram will be rusty, as will Deion Branch, his wingman on the other side. While the shifty, smart WR isnít in the same class as the other WRs who have had success against the Giants this year, heíll post low WR#2 numbers, more so in PPR leagues.

Lance Moore v. MIN
Moore again makes the list, and for good reason: Brees looks for him and heís got good hands. As long Marques Colston and Jeremy Shockey arenít around to steal looks, Moore will earn WR#1 numbers against lesser defenses such as the Vikes. Not bad for a pick-up.

Wes Welker @ SF
Welker hasnít performed to expectations, to say the least. Against the punchless Niners, heíll scrape together enough numbers for a WR#2, if the Patriots were able to do anything to shore up their weak passing game on the bye week. I think they did.

Chris Cooley @ PHI
Another draft day disappointment, Chris Cooley hasnít put together a good game yet. If he canít get it going against the Eagles, who are the second-worst team in the league against tight ends, it might be time to cut bait.

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

Calvin Johnson @ CHI
The Bears arenít staunch against the pass, but theyíve faced good quarterbacks with decent protection. Theyíll bring the heat against Kitna, and Johnson will suffer as a result.

Santana Moss @ PHI
Not recommending benching Moss per se, just curtailing expectations a bit. The Eagles will be the stiffest test yet for the blazing fast Moss. Looking more like WR#2 numbers than the WR#1 numbers youíve grown accustomed to from him.

Randy Moss @ SF
Nope, once again heíll fail to post good numbers against a poor opponent. Doesnít have the grit or determination to succeed when things arenít going his way.

Steve Breaston v. BUF
If Boldin canít go, this popular waiver wire pick-up will be on the spot. But heís not as polished or talented as Boldin, and the Bills bring it. Maybe a WR#3 score.
