Wide Receiver

Alshon Jeffrey, OAK (48%, 8) – This may be a homer pick and it also breaks my rule on playing people coming off multi-week injuries, but the Bears offense is desperate for a play-maker at receiver and I think Jimmy Clausen will be looking Jeffrey’s way often on Sunday.

Pierre Garcon, PHI (38%, 7 ) – With DeSean Jackson doubtful for this week, Garcon should be the primary target on Sunday. He had 12 targets last week with Jackson out and I think he’ll see close to the same if not more this week.

Michael Crabtree, @CHI (36%, 9) – The Bears secondary has struggled to stop anyone this year and with most of the focus on rookie Amari Cooper, Crabtree could be open often. He’s averaging 11 target per game so far this season.

Anquan Boldin, GB (32%, 7) – This is a gut pick, I really don’t have any stats to back it up. Kaepernick looked terrible last week, but will need to throw on Sunday to keep up with the Packers offense. I think Boldin will get double-digit targets for the first time all year and should have a solid fantasy line.

Terrance Williams, @NO (30%, 6) – Was held without a catch last week in Brandon Weeden’s first game but I don’t see that happening again. Williams is the Cowboy’s most talented WR with Dez Bryant out and I think they will find a way to get him the ball this week.

Percy Harvin, NYG (28%, 8) – With Sammy Watkins out on Sunday, Harvin should get more snaps than usual against a Giants secondary allowing an average of 335 passing yards per game. I think Harvin has at least one long score Sunday.

Allen Hurns, @IND (5%, 6) – Blake Bortles connected on a 59-yard score with Hurns last week and I think they will do it again on Sunday. The Colts secondary has struggled and Hurns has legit deep speed. It’s a risky play, but if you are looking for a high-upside bye week replacement, Hurns is a decent option.
