WR Rankings for Week 14

The 'Quan had a bad game last week. Anquan Boldin dropped a ton of balls and didn't seem himself. Won't happen again. He's still Warner's fave red zone target, still the man across the middle and will be facing a pretty bad team. The reality is worse than the stats say - this is a team that looks better against the pass than they are, since teams run on them. But Warner throws a ton and will do so even against this defense. Boldin is likely good for soem nice yards and at least a TD.

Greg Jennings doesn't get near the love on weekly lists that he should. Rodgers zooms in on him - almost to a detriment at times - and knows he can go to Jennings any time and Jennings will make the catch. It will happen a ton against the Texans this week.

Once again, we have a pair of Cards Wrs in the top 5 - Larry Fitzgerald joins his partner and where Boldin is a better bet for TDs, Fitz is a sure bet for good yards, even if he doesn't get the TDs consistently. And there is always enough targets to go around in this offense.

Roddy White had a decent outing first time the Falcons met the Saints this season and it's likely he will again. Last time we were still unsure if what we were seeing was an illusion but we know what White can do with a solid QB, which Ryan most definitely is. Expect more of the same the rest of the way and start him without worry this weekend.

Reggie Wayne
should have a good day against a Bengals D which - while improved in some games - still reverts to type more often than not. This is Wayne's team now, he's the #1 here and Manning will get him the ball a ton this Sunday. Bank on it.

Other thoughts -
Brandon Marshall
has had a bad case of 'Braylon Edwards hands' lately but should get some targets and a TD against the Chiefs even if Hillis runs all over them as he did vs the Jets..... This is the week it all comes back together for Marques Colston and I think Moore will get more attention and Colston will be open again.... Dwayne Bowe has dropped quite a bit. I was a huge believer he could overcome his struggles but it appears he still has a ways to go before he can be fully trusted week to week.....
