16
Pierre Garcon
WAS
10
Has at least 10 in each of last 3 weeks
  • WW: The St. Louis Rams only called Tavon Austin's name four times on offense. Two produced big-play scores to go along with his punt return. Maybe the desperate St. Louis Rams finally have found consistent ways to use their first-round, speed-fueled weapon in space. Don't bank on WR3 numbers all the time, but if you need a spark to get to your postseason, few available commodities boast his upside.
  • The Saints pressured Tony Romo, leaving a less-than-healthy Dez Bryant with just two targets. There's the "Rob Ryan familiarity" storyline, but Romo's increasing penchant for game management has taken his yards-per-toss down for the second straight season. Bryant doesn't belong on benches, but it's legit to wonder if he'll fall short of WR1 numbers more often down the stretch.
  • Percy Harvin was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list, and though he won't make a big dent immediately for the Seattle Seahawks, his presence suppresses the recent momentum of Doug Baldwin (18 targets last two weeks).
  • Though he only had five targets, Riley Cooper once again found love in the deep game from Foles. The Philadelphia Eagles wideout's connection with their new starter is strong and should keep Cooper in fantasy lineups.
  • WW: The San Francisco 49ers gave Mario Manningham six looks in his first game back. Expect such attention to continue, especially if Vernon Davis (concussion) must miss time. Of course, Michael Crabtree (Achilles') may soon follow, too.

Tyler Eifert gets his chance....
