Buster Davis is more of a slot receiver than a downfield threat. VJax will assume that role (hell, both he and Chambers are more downfield threats). He could have a nice game, although his ceiling is probably 70 yards and a TD, max. The Chargers are playing the Patriots though, so I'm not sure how they'll fare---they haven't looked really good recently though, so I wouldn't put too much faith in Davis having a good week.



His ceiling with Chambers in is 70 yds...Vjax is,in my eyes, a home-run threat of sorts, only catching 2-4 balls a game but making the most out of them. If Vjax gets twice the amount of looks I say were looking at more of a 100+ game, I'm undecided on whethere or not he'll score, I'l leave that up to Gates...

Pittman. With Young out, and Pittman showing some tough running against TB, I think he gets a significant uptick in carries this week on top of the goalline looks he already has. He could put up some decent numbers this week.

Sorry, should have been more clear, 70 yards and a TD is Buster's max, not VJ's. VJ's max with Chambers out is probably more like 100+ yds, 2 TDs, although against the Pats, I wouldn't bet on it.

Everytime I start some random guy they bust out, like Meachem, so hopefully the trend continues.


Better make sure he's 100%:

Vincent Jackson, who has a team-high 17 catches, was also out Thursday. He tweaked his knee in Wednesday's practice and stayed off it.

"There's a difference between playing with soreness and soreness you can't play through,'' Jackson said. "The knee is just pretty sore ---- get some rest and see if we can get the inflammation out of there and hopefully by (Friday) I can practice.''

I'd agree with Dustin Keller.

Also think these guys may have big weeks:

- Antwan Randle El
- Vincent Jackson (assuming healthy)

Can Greg Camarillo be considered a sleeper?

I was pretty impressed with this guy the past couple of weeks and it looks like he has become the #1 WR in Miami. I really don't think Houston has anyone that can stop him if Miami decides to let up on Ronnie Brown a bit.

With Reggie Brown officially out for week 6, Kevin Curtis attains sleeper status for this week. He has practiced all week and is almost completely recovered from his hernia surgery. McNabb is going to need someone besides DeSean to throw to and a healthy Curtis is far better than any of Philly's subs. I'd bet he's still available in some leagues. I'm looking forward to turning a late round pick into a starting WR. ;-D
