PvP: Week 14 wide receivers


It's not often the majority of the top projected wide receivers score in single digits, but that's exactly what happened this past weekend.

Andre Johnson was the only wide receiver among Fantasy Football Nerd's projected top 10 to exceed his projection, and Wes Welker and Marques Colston were the only other two to surpass nine points.

Here's how the top 10 fared:

1. Johnson: 15.7 projected points/31 points scored
2. Larry Fitzgerald: 14.4/2
3. Randy Moss: 14.2/1
4. Chad Ochocinco: 13.3/8
5. Sidney Rice: 13/9
6. Welker: 12.5/10
7. Colston: 12.2/11
8. Donald Driver: 12.1/1
9. Reggie Wayne: 11.8/4
10. Anquan Boldin: 11.7/4

Moss had his worst outing of the season, with one reception for 16 yards. Worse, Carolina players said they saw Moss essentially quit after he was not heavily involved in the offense early.

For Moss owners, Sunday's debacle could be a blessing. How many times have we seen a player like Moss (i.e. Terrell Owens, Chad Ochocinco) come under scrutiny, only to come back the next game with a monster performance? Plus Moss gets the Bills, against whom he had 141 yards on 12 catches in Week 1.

Wayne, meantime, has posted four straight weeks of single-digit fantasy production. He has one touchdown during that stretch and has not had more than 89 yards receiving.

But like Moss, Wayne could be in for a resurgent performance. The Colts play Jacksonville, and in Week 1 against the Jaguars, Wayne had 162 yards and one touchdown. Putting to rest speculation the Colts would rest their starters this week, Coach Jim Caldwell said his team will prepare just as it did for the first 13 games.

"The only thing that will deter anyone from playing time is health issue, whether or not obviously they're capable of playing," Caldwell told reporters. "But other than that we're going to play ball and approach it the same way we do every week."
