Complete Week Four Player Rankings & Projections I More Sit & Starts
Sure, our top-ranked wide receiver is among the nation's best. However the rest of our Start List is again dotted with some that may not have seen much starting action to date. Some big names continue to struggle, and Week Four is a good time to take a shot with a lesser-known performer.
Last Week's WR/TE Starts (points in parenthesis):
Randall Cobb (11), Justin Blackmon (35), TJ Jones (1), James Rodgers (4), David Paulson(0), Kamar Jorden (12), Jerrel Jernigan (5), Jordan White (23), Dwayne Frampton (17)
Start Average: 12. Feast or famine. Average isn't great: B-
Last Week's WR/TE Sits:
A.J. Jenkins (4), Jheranie Boyd (0), Jermaine Kearse (11), Conner Vernon (1), T.Y. Hilton (5), A.J. Guyton (3), DeAndre Brown (3)
Start Average: 4. Lots of poor performances here. A
Start Em! Wide Receivers/TE's
1. Ryan Broyles, Oklahoma at Cincinnati
The Bearcats are 91st against the pass, and they haven't seen the likes of Mr. Broyles just yet.
2. Conner Vernon, Duke vs. Army
One week's sit is another week's start. Alabama took Vernon out of the offense, and Army doesn't have that capability.
3. Daymond Patterson, Kansas vs. New Mexico State
New Mexico State is among the nation's worst defensive units, and Patterson has been a consistent Jayhawk target.
4. Nick Provo, Syracuse vs. Colgate
If Provo can go 5-85-1 against the Maine Black Bears, what can he do against the Colgate Raiders? Oh, the anticipation!
1. Damaris Johnson, Tulsa
Damaris, I'm really losing patience here.
2. Greg Salas, Hawaii vs. Charleston Southern
Salas has gone 8-124, 7-63 and 9-94 in the season's first three contests. He'll find the end zone this week.
3. Lester Jean, FAU vs. North Texas
North Texas has been pretty good against the pass, but this is largely because teams have run at will against the Mean Green.
Sit Em! Wide Receivers/TE's
1. Randall Cobb, Kentucky at Florida
Kentucky appears a chic pick this week; I'm not buying. Florida rolls, and a big part will be shutting down Cobb.
2. Darvin Adams, Auburn vs. South Carolina
The Gamecock pass defense stats are misleading. They've handled all three opponents pretty easily.
3. Jarrett Boykin, Virginia Tech at Boston College
Love Boykin, but he and the Hokies are in for a rough day.
1. James Cleveland, Houston at Tulane
In all honesty Cleveland is too good to sit, however I'm not too fired up about what Terrance Broadway will bring to the passing attack.
2. Antavious Wilson, Marshall vs. Ohio
The Ohio D isn't that bad, and this game won't become a high-scoring affair.
3. Kamar Jorden, Bowling Green at Michigan
The Wolverines won't let a repeat of last week take place.
