Start Em! Wide Receivers
1. Justin Blackmon, Oklahoma State vs. Baylor
No Poke receiver really stepped up during Blackmon's one-game suspension; he'll pick up right where he left off.
2. Juron Criner, Arizona at Stanford
The Cats will score some points, bu they'll have to come through the air. Criner is a matchup problem, regardless of the opponent.
3. Ronald Johnson, USC vs. Arizona State
He hasn't had the huge campaign we expected, but RoJo is finding the end zone with great frequency. In fact he's scored three times in his last two contests while only nabbing 110 yards worth of receptions. He's due to bust out.
4. Derrell Johnson-Koulianos, Iowa at Indiana
We love Stanzi this week, so we also love DJK. The Hoosiers are leaking oil, and things won't get better this week.
1. DeMarco Sampson, SDSU vs. Colorado State
Sampson has caught fire over the last two weeks (14 catches, 302 yards and four scores) and now he welcomes the nation's 93rd-rated defensive unit to town.
2. Jordan White, Western Michigan vs. Central Michigan
White has caught fire, just in time for a little rivalry action. The Chips are actually playing pretty solid defense; it's the offense that has let them down during this rough stretch. However the Broncos will still move the ball very well.
3. T.Y. Hilton, FIU vs. La.-Monroe
Hilton finally surpassed 100 yards last week; here's to a nice little strech continuing against a rather poor pass defense.
4. Kris Adams, UTEP vs. SMU
Adams is back to his touchdown scoring ways, and they'll be plenty of scoring options this week as the Miners and Mustangs face off.
Sit Em! Wide Receivers
1. A.J. Green, Georgia vs. Idaho State
Keep Mr. Green healthy for Auburn next week.
2. Jeff Maehl, Oregon vs. Washington
It's gotta stop sometime. I mean, come on, it's like...Jeff Maehl.
3. Bert Reed, Florida State vs. North Carolina
The Heels are 29th against the pass, and the Noles have shown an ability to get it done on the ground. It's hard to envision a huge game from Reed, who continues to struggle to find the end zone.
1. Greg Salas, Hawaii at Boise State
One of the nation's top receivers is a risky start in Week 10. That blue turf isn't too friendly.
2. Jeremy Kerley, TCU at Utah
The touchdown streak stops at four. This one will be a ground battle.
3. Lou Greenwood, Co. State at SDSU
The Aztecs are humming and the Rams are not very good. This one will get ugly pretty quickly.
