PvP: Week 7 wide receivers


In a high-scoring Week 7, the top 10 projected fantasy wide receivers underperformed. Only Vincent Jackson was significantly better than his Fantasy Football Nerd projection.

1. Randy Moss: 16.1/6
2. Marques Colston: 14.9/13
3. Andre Johnson: 14.1/6

5. Wes Welker: 13.7/16
6. Larry Fitzgerald: 13.3/8

8. Vincent Jackson: 12.4/20
9. Roddy White: 12.3/11
10. Steve Smith, Giants 11.8/6

For a second straight game, Miles Austin was the week's biggest overachiever. He was projected at 10.2 points, and he produced 29. Austin has become a must-start WR2. With a couple more gems like the past two, he has the potential to become a must-start WR1.
