Inside the numbers:

  • Andre Johnson has 15 catches for 289 yards and two touchdowns in his past two games. It’s time he reclaims his number one ranking.
  • I don’t see Reggie Wayne matching the 15 catches for 196 yards he had the last time he faced Jacksonville, but he should put up big numbers.
  • You can pass the ball on the Ravens and Marques Colston, who has 535 yards and five touchdowns in his past six games, should be the primary beneficiary.
  • Hakeem Nicks caught seven passes for 96 yards. Barring any setbacks, it looks like he’s a strong WR1 once again.
  • If Matt Cassel can’t play this week, it would be hard to do so with Dwayne Bowe, who has faded as fast as Brett Favre the past two weeks.
  • Should somebody tell Deion Branch that it’s not 2005 anymore. The guy has been ridiculous the past two weeks. Meanwhile Wes Welker is averaging 79.3 yards and a score over his last four games.
  • In the first meeting with Cleveland T.O. caught ten passes for 210 yards.
  • Brandon Marshall was able to play last week, and barring a setback should be a force against Buffalo this week.
  • Greg Jennings, Sidney Rice, and Santonio Holmes will be hard to count on this week because of quarterback play. Larry Fitzgerald says “welcome to my world”.
  • ***Update***  Big Mike Williams appears good to go this week so I’m adding him to the rankings.
  • ***Update***  With both Brett Favre and Tarvaris Jackson, I have to downgrade Sidney Rice and Percy Harvin.
