Victor Cruz tore his patellar tendon and dropped a TD on the same play. Cruz is done for 2014. If you play in the sort of league where Rueben Randle is on the Week 7 waiver wire – weird – time to start spending your FAAB bucks. If you’re lacking FAAB funds, Odell Beckham Jr. is the next best thing and comes at a discount. Either way, you’re going to want one of them… Whenever Cecil Shorts III is healthy, start him. Yes, there are rumblings he’s going to be traded, but until that happens, be satisfied you own the first look on a team that’s always passing. 16 TARGETS FTW!!! If you missed out on CSIII, Allen Robinson continues to be peppered with targets too. He’s averaging 9.25 over his past four games… I took a shot on Brandon LaFell in a few leagues and got super lucky. He’s going to be involved, but I refuse to believe he’ll average a TD every 3.7 receptions. I mean, he’s not 2002 Marc Boerigter. LaFell is a decent roll of the dice if you’re stuck for a FLEX, but don’t make the mistake of trusting him. Rinse and repeat with Brian Tyms… Robert Woods however, is an excellent PPR bench guy. Working as the Bills possession receiver, he’s a large part of their low-risk offense. Woods won’t find the end zone very often, but he’s been on the end of at least eight targets in three of the last four games… James Jones. Pick him up. I DARES YA. Andre Holmes too. He’s busted out the last two games collecting 195 yards and three scores. And don’t kid yourself, it’s all about attrition: Holmes has 20 targets those games… Don’t be snorlaxing on Markus Wheatonya hear? He’s yet to put it all together in a single game, but his breakout beckons. Wheaton actually saw more balls fly at his face (he just thought the balls were haunted by ghosts) than Antonio Brown against the Browns – 11 targets to 10… Mohamed Sanu WENT OFF. He won’t do that as often when A.J. Green and Marv Jones are on the field. He’ll be awesome when they’re not, though…  Jarvis Landry is officially a better Fantasy option than Brian Hartline. Landry soaked up eight targets producing a 6-75-1 line versus the Packers. Plus, he possesses the ability to score on special teams. Hartline has the ability to score never… They both found paydirt, yet Malcom Floyd remains the better add off the Week 7 waiver wire than Eddie Royal. When Philip Rivers takes shots downfield it’s in Floyd’s direction… I’m giving the entire Browns receiving corps a mulligan. I’d wager Brian Hoyer will need to deliver more than eight completions/win moving forward. Andrew Hawkins is still the best option, despite his Week 6 goose egg, followed by Miles Austin, then Taylor Gabriel. Entering the week, all three generated more points per route than any member of the New Orleans Saints. Probably because they’re all real lil’ and sneaky.
