After losing quality RBs in the early weeks of the football season, the injury focus has now shifted to the WR position. The New York Jets lost former Super Bowl MVP Santonio Holmes for the season with a LisFranc injury and last night during Thursday Night Football the St. Louis Rams lost Danny Amendola to a broken collarbone.
FOR STARTERS STAY AWAY FROM ALL JETS RECEIVERS! With the way Mark Sanchez has played lately, the fact that Tm Tebow will be the starter soon and no running game, the Jets have ZERO players worth owning!
Start with Kendall Wright (32% owned Yahoo) of the Tennessee Titans. I know the Titans are a wreck but they are also one of the leagues worst defenses leaving the offense to play catch up quite often and forcing them to throw the ball more often than they would like.
Prefer a team with a more solid QB? How about Randall Cobb (63%) and / or James Jones (60%) of the Green Bay Packers. Both of them will disappoint quite often but they both have a ton of upside with the way Greg Jennings groin is treating him this season.
The Arizona Cardinals Andre Roberts (59%) is worth a look but just remember that he plays in a tough defensive division and still has another game against both the Seahawks and Rams and 2 more with the 49ers (1 is week 17 though). Make sure you play matchups with him as the Rams proved last night that a team with a good defensive line will disrupt any offensive plan the Cardinals had.
Ever wanted a 5'7 wide receiver on your team? Well you should! Andrew Hawkins (51%) of the Cincinnati Bengals is averaging 16.5 yards per reception but is a much better NON PPR guy.
Streaming WRs each week based on matchups and injury reports is not the worst idea either, for now. Look at the Giants this week without Hakeem Nicks (again!) and Domenic Hixon (40%) and Ramses Barden (14%) are extermely valuable against a weak Browns defense.
