26. Johnny Knox @ Carolina
27. Santana Moss vs. Green Bay
28. Michael Crabtree vs. Philadelphia
29. Percy Harvin @ New York Jets
30. Mario Manningham @ Houston
31. Lance Moore @ Arizona
32. Legedu Naanee @ Oakland
33. Mike Sims-Walker vs. Buffalo
34. Dwayne Bowe @ Indianapolis
35. Steve Johnson @ Jacksonville
36. Kenny Britt @ Dallas
37. Danny Amendola vs. Detroit
38. Roy Williams vs. Tennessee
39. Devin Hester @ Carolina
40. Dez Bryant vs. Tennessee

Inside the numbers:

  • Andre Johnson took last week off to get healthy. That should pay major dividends against the Giants.
  • Austin Collie leads all WRs with 5 TDs. He’s the only one to have a score each week.
  • DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin slid down the rankings with Kevin Kolb in as the starter. Until he proves he can get the ball to his WRs, their value takes a hit.
  • Brandon Lloyd is just two yards shy of Reggie Wayne for the league high. Denver’s number one passing offense faces Baltimore’s number one passing defense. Something has to give.
  • Greg Jennings is tied for the team lead with Donald Driver and Jermichael Finley with 26 targets, but only has 12 catches.  Driver has become the safer play.
  • Lance Moore has three TDs in the past two weeks.
  • Steve Johnson has a TD in his last two games and is facing Jacksonville who has allowed the most passing TDs (9) on the year.
  • With Jay Cutler out I downgraded Johnny Knox and Devin Hester.
