Wide Receiver 

Golden Tate, AZ (56%, 10) – Lions QB Matthew Stafford just can’t be trusted right now. Tate was held to just 3 catches for 29 yards and it was already the second time this season he’s had less than 30 yards receiving. He has a tough match-up this week against a good Cardinals secondary and you are better off leaving him on the bench.

Michael Crabtree, DEN (35%, 10) – Has had a nice season so far, but the Broncos have the #1 pass defense in the league right now. You probably have a receiver with a better match-up on your roster.

Sammy Watkins, @TEN (23%, 10) – Is questionable to play Sunday and even if he does, Watkins could see limited snaps and is also a risk to get hurt again. I’d hold off on Watkins for another week.

Anquan Boldin, @NYG (32%, 9) – One of my favorite players but he’s been held under 20 yards receiving the last two games. Part of it is inconsistent play from Kaepernick, but part is Boldin getting old and not being able to separate from DBs.

Marques Colston, @PHI (20%, 8) – Another player whose age is starting to show. Colston has been passed by Willie Snead for the Saints WR2 job and is coming off a season low 19 yards last week.

Roddy White, WAS (16%, 7) – Has just 2 catches for 8 yards last week. He’s done.
