Wide Receiver

Jeremy Maclin, BUF (55%, 12) – Is averaging less than six fantasy points per game over the last four weeks. The Chiefs are using other options than Maclin lately and he’s not worth starting until they start to target him like they did earlier in the season.

John Brown, @SF (40%, 11) – The Cards have a lot of weapons at WR and Brown is averaging under three catches per game over the last three. His value is almost all TD dependent lately, which makes him a risky start.

Stefon Diggs, @ATL (39%, 10) – Falcons corner Desmond Trufant is one of the best in the league and will most likely be matched up verse Diggs this week. The Vikings have struggled to throw the ball downfield anyway and with Trufant shadowing him, Diggs will have a hard time producing any fantasy value.

Tavon Austin, @CIN (30%, 9) – There was a brief stretch earlier this season when the Rams seemed to have figured out how to use Austin, but over the last two weeks Austin is averaging less than two fantasy points per game. I haven’t seen a dangerous offensive weapon utilized so poorly since Devin Hester was a Bear.

Ted Ginn, @DAL (20%, 10) – Scored a TD last week, but hadn’t scored in the five previous games and only hit double-digit fantasy points in one of them. Ginn leads the league in percentage of passes dropped and seems to have lost Cam Newton’s trust.
