7 of 7

Wide Receiver

John Brown, STL (43%, 9) – Is averaging only 5 targets per game over the last two weeks and has yet to connect with Palmer on any deep balls. It’s going to happen eventually, but I don’t think it will be this week against a tough Rams D. Their pass rush isn’t going to give Palmer much time to set up in the pocket, which could limit the deep opportunities for Brown.

Golden Tate, @SEA (56%, 9) – Should see a lot of Richard Sherman on Monday night and I don’t trust Matt Stafford at all right now. I think the Lions offense will struggle this week hurting Tate’s fantasy value.

Vincent Jackson, CAR (53%, 9) – Had a season low 2 catches for 40 yards last week and hasn’t been involved much over the last two games. Mike Evans is clearly Jameis Winston’s primary target and Jackson hasn’t put up enough stats to deserve a starting spot this season.

Mike Wallace, @DEN (28%, 8) – With AP back the Vikings are a run-heavy team who haven’t been throwing deep at all. Bridgewater doesn’t have a big arm anyway, but the fact that they aren’t even trying to throw deep really hurts Wallace’s value as that is his main skill.

Marcus Colston, DAL (20%, 8) – Looking old and slow this season and Drew Brees is questionable to play on Sunday. Even with Brees under center, the Cowboys are a tough match-up and Colston has yet to prove he can still get open consistently.

Roddy White, HOU (17%, 7) – Two weeks in a row with no catches. DONE.

Tight End

Kyle Rudolph, @DEN (32%, 8) – Denver is leading the league in passing yards allowed and have been tough on tight ends. The Vikings just aren’t throwing the ball enough to feel good about starting any of their receiving options.

Zach Ertz, @WAS (31%, 7) – Has yet to top 5 fantasy points in a game this year. I’ve been teased by Ertz’s talent for too long. I’m cutting him loose in all but deep-bench leagues.

Vernon Davis, GB (15%, 7) – It’s not 2013 anymore. There is no reason to have Davis in your lineup or on your roster.
