4 of 4

DeSean Jackson, STL (51%, 12) – Is barely practicing, has a tough matchup against the Rams D, and I don’t trust Colt McCoy yet.

Torrey Smith, @MIA (48%, 12) – Is expected to play Sunday, but is banged up and will be matched-up up against the Dolphins shut-down corner Brent Grimes. Smith has been good lately, but I’m expecting a performance similar to his early season disappearing acts.

Sammy Watkins, @DEN (42%, 14) – Has a bad hip and has been held under 40 receiving yards for 4 weeks in a row.

Percy Harvin, @MIN (39%, 12) – Unless the Jets start using Harvin as an RB, he won’t be in any of my lineups this season. Their passing game is a joke right now.

Reggie Wayne, @CLE (29%, 13) – Has averaged just 4 catches per game over the last six weeks. If you value consistency, then go for it, but it’s not enough production for my taste.

Cecil Shorts, HOU (15%, 12) – Averaging 3.5 catches per game over the last 6 weeks. No thanks.

Vernon Davis, @OAK (37%, 8) – Every week. He’s not good anymore.

Zach Ertz, SEA (26%, 7) – This has been a frustrating season for Ertz who hasn’t had a useful fantasy game in a month and a half.

Charles Clay, @BAL (15%, 12) – The Ravens pass defense has been bad, but Clay has been hurt and his backup, Dion Sims, looked serviceable enough to give Clay some time off this week.
