WR Rankings for Week 10

Again, as I said on the ESPN1230 show with Jake Stevens, I think Roddy White is now a top flight Fantasy (and NFL) WR and should be played pretty much regardless of matchup. Matt Ryan is going to have a very good day against the Saints depleted secondary and hewill look to White often - as he does all the time. The Saints have allowed 240+ yards per game, with 12 TDs to only 6 interceptions. White will easily get the seperation he needs to break free and will have an outstanding day.

Larry Fitzgerald vs Anquan Boldin is a debate a lot like 'which do I like better, chocolate ice cream or vanilla?' It splits the electorate pretty thoroughly but I say - WHO THE HELL CARES? IT'S FREAKING ICE CREAM - ENJOY! Seriously, both of these guys will have - and often do have - top flight Fantasy games. You have to be happy with either and I would be tempted to start both if you happened to have both. Fitz will undoubtedly get the yards and Boldin is a more sure red zone target. I think this week Fitz gets a TD and the yards, which bumps him up over 'Quan. But Boldin is a fantastic play as well. I don't know how the 49rs will come out this week but I do know that Warner will throw and there is enough love for both guys. Star tthem and enjoy your damned dessert.

I know Donald Driver (#19 ) woke up and found himself relevant last week, but Greg Jennings is the man in Green Bay, bar none. As I say in the Qb rankings, Rodgers will have to throw to win this game, what with his bad run game and the shaky Vikes secondary. And while he will occasionally grace other receivers and TEs with a bunch of catches, he always goes to his man, Jennings. If Rodgers is throwing and needs a big score (and he will do both) then Jennings is your man. Jennings has become a solid WR 1 most weeks and this will be a very good game for him. (Side note: they throw so much that I think Driver has his second good game in a row, hence the 19 ranking.)

Calvin 'I am Megatron' Johnson may have a new Qb this weekend in Culpepper and while C-Pepp is clearly not the same guy who tossed TDs to Moss way back when, he still has an arm. While he will nto be able to scramble as he used to and will find himself on his back, when he isn't picking turf out of his mouth, C-Pepp will use Johnson as often as he can and has an arm that might - just might - allow Megatron to get some seperation in a way he hasn't been able to with Orlovsky. Stanton makes him riskier but let's face it- Johnson will get it done even if it's a Juggs machine. They will have to throw against the Jags and I think Johnson will be able to burn that secondary regardless of QB.

Other Decepticon and Autobot-free thoughts -
I like #15 Muhsin Muhammad a ton this week and might have him ranked higher than just about anyone else - that matchup with the special teamer masquerading as a corner is going to be fantastic.... Repeat after me - you play #17 Matt Jones, until it's time to not play Matt Jones. Against Detroit? It's Dr. Rockso time. Felony possession or not I don't know what the NFL is doing and until they actually bench him, I won't. This week should be a big one KKKKYEEEEAH..... And yes, #18 Plaxico Burress is busy bitching his way out of the top 20 and is not a consistent - or reliable - fantasy option. I keep waiting for him to rebound and he keeps struggling.....
