PvP: Week 13 wide receivers


Six of Fantasy Football Nerd's top 10 wide receiver plays exceeded their aggregate projection, but Reggie Wayne, the No. 1 pick, well underperformed.

Here are Week 13 results:

1. Wayne: 14.8 projected points/4 actual points
2. Andre Johnson: 14.7/15
3. Randy Moss: 14.6/12
4. Wes Welker: 13/16
5. Larry Fitzgerald: 13/20
6. Chad Ochocinco: 12.4/19
7. Sidney Rice: 12.1/7
8. Brandon Marshall: 11.8/15
9. Miles Austin: 11.7/16
10. Vincent Jackson: 11.6/5

The biggest overachiever was Louis Murphy, who was projected for 2.6 points but accounted for 24 points (128 yards, two touchdowns). Murphy clearly has emerged as a legitimate deep threat for the Raiders, who had high expectations for top draft pick Darius Heyward-Bey.

Instead, Heyward-Bey has been a huge disappointment while Murphy recorded his most impressive game of the season since he had 87 yards and a touchdown in Week 1.

Other overachievers included Sam Aiken (3/14), Robert Meachem (7.9/20) and Anquan Boldin (8.9/21).
