I like Blackmon and Gordon. Denver and GB Defenses are giving up big points to fantasy receivers

True, but he Eagles give up the most Fantasy points to WR in the entire league.. Anyone think Vincent Jackson should be in those top 2?

Brown and Blackmon for me (Gordon is playing DET, not GB by the way)

> Vjax has a good match up too, at home vs the swiss cheese. I don't trust Glennon yet, so for now I'm avoiding him.
> Bowe has had a history of average/below average games vs OAK
> Gordon will be solid, but I prefer Brown here. Blackmon is the given because Denver's defense isn't winning them any games :-D

Sorry mixing up weeks. Gordon at GB next week. Blackmon is a given. And against my own reasoning I wouldn't start v Jax either cause the QB situation in TB sucks. I think I still given Gordon the edge if as wtr23 says Bowe has a history of poor games against OAK

not necessarily poor, but here's some figures to consider (and I've posted these elsewhere as well):

In the last 5 meetings vs OAK, Bowe has 2 TD, and he has not broken 100 yards in any of those games. His best game in that stretch came with a 6/80/1 stat line in week 16 of 2011. He struggled last year against what I thought was our worst secondary unit in 5 years. Our secondary is beatable if you go deep, but Alex Smith has not done that this season so I imagine you have better options than Bowe this week.
