Jeremy Ebert, Northwestern vs. Indiana
One week after we benched Ebert he is back in our good graces against the Hoosiers. Indiana let Marvin McNutt go wild last week, so Ebert should find plenty of room to make an impact and put up close to 20 fantasy points.
Alex Torres, Texas Tech vs. Iowa State
Tech pulled off a shocker at Oklahoma and Torres was a key, scoring three touchdowns in the win. Now against the Cyclones, Torres is locked and loaded for another huge day, especially if Darrin Moore is limited again.
DeAndre Hopkins, Clemson vs. Georgia Tech
Hopkins was just as electric as anyone else on the field last week as Clemson blew out UNC. Now in a tougher game against Tech, Hopkins may very well have another big game in him. With defenses focusing on Sammy Watkins, he has single coverage all the time. Expect him to exploit it again.
Marvin McNutt, Iowa vs. Minnesota
Minnesota cannot defend and McNutt is a true playmaker and the leader of the Iowa offense. This is a no-brainer.
Markus Wheaton, Oregon State vs. Utah
Although he has yet to score in 2011, Wheaton has played steady and been the team's leading target. Utah has been abused recently by athletic receivers and this is the week Wheaton finds paydirt.
Rashad Greene, FSU vs. NC State
Greene is a freak of an athlete and a speedster. The Wolfpack cannot contain him on the outside and he should find the deep routes easy to come by.
Cody Wilson, Central Michigan vs. Akron
Wilson and the Chips offense is on fire, and he is beginning to put up numbers that we expect from the talented wideout. With 49 catches on the year, he may catch double digits against Akron, a team that just allowed 37 points to Ohio, a squad not known for scoring at will.
With Justin Hardy
out for the Pirates for the next few weeks, Webster is an interesting name to step up. He caught six balls for over 80 yards last week and against a porous Tulane defense, he is a threat to find the end zone and top 100 yards.
A true hail mary play, mostly because how can you not love the name? Gilmore is the Rams' leading receiver, and I think despite my broken hand I can grab six balls for 80 yards and a score against UNLV's secondary, so why not Mr. Gilmore?
Jarius Wright, Arkansas vs. Vanderbilt
After Wright exploded against Texas A&M he was a must start every week going forward, but now he is struggling. Vandy is a better defense than you think, and with the way Tyler Wilson spreads the ball around, other guys will get touches and keep his value down.
La'Rod King, Kentucky vs. Mississippi State
Last week King scored twice as we started him. Now against an SEC defense he will struggle. Bench in all formats.
Cody Hoffman, BYU vs. TCU
Hoffman we liked for last week against Idaho State and he responded with two scores. Not this week, not with an untested road QB and not against TCU. Bench Hoffman this week.
Noel Grigsby, San Jose State vs. LA Tech
Grigsby is a solid player in PPR formats, but with the Spartans going on the road in this one, he cannot be counted on to find the end zone. There are safer bets to score than Grigsby.
Brent Leonard, Louisiana Monroe vs. Western Kentucky
Leonard is another solid PPR receiver that is solid in those formats but struggles to put touchdowns in his stat column. Western Kentucky will try to control the ball through the ground game in Bobby Rainey, so there should be a better player to use for your WR3 spot.
