Complete Week One Player Rankings & Projections l More Sit & Starts
Some unfamiliar names litter the top of our Week Three wide receiver rankings. In fact some of these guys may not even have been called out during your fantasy draft. However as any fantasy owner knows, things often change once the ball is kicked into the air.
Last Week's WR/TE Starts (point totals in parenthesis):
Michael Floyd (7), T.J. Moe (8), Jarrett Boykin (7), Michael Egnew (5), Lance Kendricks (12), James Cleveland (13), Sancho McDonald (4), Blake Hammond (8), DeMarco Sampson (7), Jerrel Jernigan (22)
Grade: Flat out mediocre. C
Last Week's WR/TE Sits:
Russell Shepard (13), Donovan Varner (5), Julio Jones (5), Jeremy Ebert (7), Alshon Jeffery (10), Lester Jean (10), Greg Salas (6), Zach Bolger (4)
Grade: A little better than the starts. B-
Start Em! Wide Receivers and TE's
Randall Cobb, Kentucky vs. Akron
Derrick Locke may not see too much action, so it'll be even more Cobb.
Justin Blackmon, Oklahoma State vs. Tulsa
The top Oklahoma State wide receiver has emerged.
TJ Jones, Notre Dame vs. Michigan State
Too much attention to Michael Floyd means more big plays for Mr. Jones.
James Rodgers, Oregon State vs. Louisville
Oregon State will be ready to fly following a week to stew about what might have been against TCU.
David Paulson, Oregon vs. Portland State
His role is increasing.
Kamar Jorden, Bowling Green vs. Marshall
23 catches for 279 yards in two games...but without a score. He's due, and Marshall is still reeling from last Friday.
Jerrel Jernigan, Troy at UAB
Jernigan is seeing a whole lot of touches for Troy, an average of 11.5 through two games. And his two scores puts him on the best pace of his career.
Jordan White, Western Michigan vs. Toledo
As expected, the Western Michigan offense is showing great potential under the direction of Alex Carder. We weren't sure that White would emerge as the prime option. He has.
Dwayne Frampton, Arkansas State vs. LAMO
Frampton has come alive.
Sit Em! Wide Receivers and TE's
A.J. Jenkins, Illinois vs. Northern Illinois
He's scored in each of the first two contests, but consistent production has never been trademarked in Champaign. And NIU will slop this one up a bit.
Jheranie Boyd, North Carolina vs. Georgia Tech
I don't see this one becoming a track meet...of course I said that about Wake and Duke, and we saw how that one turned out.
Jermaine Kearse, Washington vs. Nebraska
It's been a great start for one of the nation's best (but overlooked) receivers. The Huskers slow him down a bit in Week Three.
Conner Vernon, Duke vs. Alabama
This will not end well for the Blue Devils.
T.Y. Hilton, FIU at Texas A&M
They'll be a bunch of scoring, but the Aggies will do the heavy lifting.
A.J. Guyton, Central Florida at Buffalo
UCF has a decent passing attack, and Buffalo is solid against the pass. It's the uncertainty at the quarterback spot that has me a little leery about Central Florida's prospects through the air.
DeAndre Brown, Southern Miss at Kansas
I don't think Kansas is as good against the pass as their statistics (23rd nationally) display. After all when one of your two games is against Georgia Tech, your defensive backfield will look a little better than it normally would. However this is not a bad team, and they'll know who needs extra attention on Saturday.
