Two that I haven't seen mentioned yet are Hymes, BAL and Curry, OAK. It's Curry not Porter who's been seeing the balls thrown his way. Last night's game also should pretty much solidify who the go to guy is in BAL. Hymes actually looked pretty impressive last night.

Yes pick up Eric Johson. Clearly the number 1 target in a struggling SF D. 112 yars last week for a tight end. Pick him up.

Agree 100% with this.

My top pickups this week.
1a. Chester Taylor
1b. Lee Evans
1c. Eric Johnson(be shocking to see him available though).

I probably wouldn't grab a Baltimore wideout unless I was really thin at that spot. I agree with Evans, (even though I have very little faith in Bledsoe).

Calico might be a good grab if he's around & you have the roster room to just sit on him for a bit. He could emerge as a solid starter just in time for a playoff run.

That's actually wrong about curry. He was targetted 5 times, while porter was targetting 6 times. The difference being porter is being covered by the top corners, and curry is not.

I'm not sure what to make of porter at this week, but i'm not sold on curry.

Anyone with any sense picked up Johnson weeks ago and started him Sunday.

I still like Doug Gabriel as a pick up. I would recommend him only in leagues where you get yards for return points. he does a good job returning kick offs and usually gets you points there besides any points that he gets from catching balls.
