Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald said he is concerned the team currently does not have a second wide receiver that can help relieve the focus he gets from opposing defenses. Right now, teams are saying, 'Fitzgerald is over here, we're not going to let him beat us. We're going to do whatever it takes to hold him down and not allow him to do that,'" Fitzgerald said. "In years past, when I had (Boldin), even last year with Steve (Breaston), defenses approached it a little differently. There were times when I could find some (space). Now those times are few and far between."

WR | Plaxico Burress | New York Jets | Fantasy
New York Jets WR Plaxico Burress said it is just a matter of time before he and QB Mark Sanchez find chemistry. Once that happens, according to Burress, the team's offense will explode.

WR | Derrick Mason | Houston Texans | Fantasy
Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said Wednesday, Oct. 19, that WR Derrick Mason is making progress. "He's doing good. The two days last week and then he helps us in the game," Kubiak said. "He looked good today, mentally. He can still run so he'll be able to help us."

WR | Mark Clayton | St. Louis Rams | Injury, Fantasy
St. Louis Rams WR Mark Clayton (knee) remains on the Physically-Unable-to-Perform (PUP) list.

"He was like 'Give me a chance and I'll go up there and go get it.'"
