WEEK 1 – Targets
Week 1


Player Team Tar Rec Yds TD Pts
Commentary









Drew Bennett TEN 17 8 106 0 18.6
Narrowly avoided turf toe epidemic last weekend to reap the benefits of his crappy team.
Marvin Harrison IND 15 9 113 0 20.3
Still marvelous, and he should stay that way with HOU,JAX,NYJ,TEN coming up.
Larry Fitzgerald ARI 14 9 133 0 22.3
Most dominant WR in football, and impossible to double-team thanks to Edge & Boldin.
Torry Holt STL 14 7 80 0 15.0
Gravy alert! SF,ARI,DET,GB,SEA on tap. Previous six vs. SF = scorching 123 ypg.
Chris Chambers MIA 14 5 59 0 10.9
Will continue to build chemistry thanks to tasty 5-week stretch beginning Week 3 vs. TEN.
Terrell Owens DAL 11 6 80 1 20.0
QB change could spell disaster for Owens and his owners, but expect Drew to rebound.
Donald Driver GB 11 7 96 0 16.6
A sober Koren can only help Driver. A drunk Koren would be entertaining as well.
Matt Jones JAC 11 5 71 0 11.7
Not sold on monstrous breakout year, but size/speed combo will shorten learning curve.
Laveranues Coles NYJ 10 8 153 0 23.3
Early favorite for ppr steal of the draft? If Pennington stays healthy it’s possible.
Jerricho Cotchery NYJ 10 6 65 1 18.5
Cotch should continue to emerge and is the reason NYJ shopped McCareins this spring.
Drew Carter CAR 10 5 62 0 12.5
A healthy Steve Smith sends Drew Carter back to punt coverage.
Isaac Bruce STL 10 5 64 0 11.4
The Rams paid Bruce $15 million this offseason. WR2 as long as he is healthy.
Donte’ Stallworth PHI 9 6 141 1 26.1
Keep him in your lineup against NYG. He had a 8/141 game against them last season.
Anquan Boldin ARI 9 4 62 1 16.2
Sure. He and Fitz will eat into each others numbers, but they also keep each other open.
Troy Williamson MIN 9 4 77 0 11.7
Schtoink! Good news though: he was open all night and Johnson kept feeding him.
Keyshawn Johnson CAR 9 4 40 0 8.0
Keyshawn will actually be better when Steve Smith is on the field and on fire.
Plaxico Burress NYG 8 4 80 1 18.0
Two freakish catches saved his owners. Should dominate the 5-10 Sheldon Brown Sunday.
Marques Colston NO 8 4 49 1 14.9
This situation is far from settled, but Colston makes a sneaky TE play in deeper leagues.
Reggie Wayne IND 8 4 67 0 10.7
Peyton was sloppy under the Giants pass rush. Wayne still has top-10 written all over him.
Wes Welker MIA 8 4 67 0 10.7
Ignited Dolphins offense and could become a nice weapon in the slot, but not for you�cyet.
Amani Toomer NYG 8 5 41 0 9.1
Eagles loss of All-Pro CB Lito Shepperd could mean big week for the underrated Toomer.
Reggie Williams JAC 7 6 47 1 16.7
Jags hell-bent on keeping Reggie out of the bust zone. Bad routes, but just might pay off.
Hines Ward PIT 7 5 53 1 16.3
Knack for scoring TD’s when production is low is what makes him special.
Muhsin Muhammad CHI 7 6 102 0 16.2
Won’t always play GB and catch 85% of his targets. A nice guy to rotate at WR3 though.
Andre Johnson HOU 7 6 101 0 16.1
Moulds already paying divedends. Tough schedule, but it should keep them throwing.
Antonio Bryant SF 7 4 114 0 15.4
Long TD negated by holding penalty. May put up a few goose eggs, but he will go big too.
Bobby Wade TEN 7 5 76 0 12.6
These numbers, and more, will belong to Givens when he returns to full strength.
Terry Glenn DAL 7 4 81 0 12.1
This will be a typical day for Glenn, plus or minus a long score.
Chad Johnson CIN 7 5 48 0 11.6
Bad weather, opponent led to run-heavy game-plan. Brace youself for a huge week.
Bobby Engram SEA 7 5 52 0 10.2
Primed for big ppr week provided Branch is a spectator. Nice emergency plug & play.
Dante’ Hall KC 7 5 31 0 8.6
6.2 ypc? Is he playing FB? Worthless with Green, invisible without Green.
Dennis Northcutt CLE 7 4 37 0 7.7
Like alligator blood, Northcutt just keeps hanging around. Loss of Vicius = slight boost.
Javon Walker DEN 7 3 41 0 7.1
Denver should rebound against their rival at home, although J-Walk’s role remains cloudy.
Roy Williams DET 7 3 36 0 6.6
Az-Hakim won’t cure double team. Expect more targets but only moderate stats vs. CHI.
Michael Clayton TB 7 3 34 0 6.4
Gruden is creative, but interior o-line woes will continue to effect everyone.
Rod Smith DEN 7 3 34 0 6.4
“Who own da Chief?” Rod does. Expect solid production this week. Over/under: 7/90/1.
Joe Horn NO 7 2 25 0 4.5
Once defenses realize Bush requires a DB in coverage, Horn will have more room.
Eric Moulds HOU 6 6 68 1 18.8
Perfect in his debut. Should continue to enjoy light coverage, but will vanish some weeks.
Mike Furrey DET 6 5 55 0 10.5
Former Rams safety is a Mike Martz fave. Addition of Az-Hakim muddles sleeper factor.
Reggie Brown PHI 6 2 20 1 10.0
Brown’s stock should rise now that Stallworth will draw WR1 coverage.
Darrell Jackson SEA 6 5 47 0 9.7
Didn’t look 100% but you gotta play him this week. He absolutely shreds the Cardinals.
Marty Booker MIA 6 3 64 0 9.4
Rebound campaign was put on hold after his head was caved in. Stay tuned.
Derrick Mason BAL 6 4 50 0 9.0
Expect McNair and the Ravens to open up the offense this week.
Randy Moss OAK 6 4 47 0 8.7
New, gentle Moss scares me the way pedophiles scare me. Should produce after the bye.
Greg Jennings GB 6 1 5 0 1.5
Until Koren is arrested, this signals the end of Jennings brief Cinderella campaign.
Michael Jenkins ATL 5 3 77 1 16.7
Subtract the slippery TD down the sideline and Jenkins was average. Worth a look though.
Antwaan Randle El WAS 5 5 34 0 9.5
A suped up Dante’ Hall. His only value lies in deep ppr leagues.
Marcus Robinson MIN 5 1 20 1 9.0
More targets than Taylor, but Taylor still looked more like the Vikings WR2.
Ernest Wilford JAC 5 3 58 0 8.8
Uh oh. I think Reggie Williams wants his job back. Wilford could land in your pool soon.
Corey Bradford DET 5 3 36 0 6.6
Martz could have taken advantage of Bradford in single-coverage last week but didn’t.
Keary Colbert CAR 5 3 32 0 6.2
When Drew Carter sends you tumbling down the depth chart, it’s time for a new career.
Lee Evans BUF 5 2 25 0 4.5
We knew there would be weeks like this. Let’s just hope there aren’t too many.
Braylon Edwards CLE 5 2 23 0 4.3
Give him time. The Brownies are bad, but the loss of Vicius will increase his targets.
Roddy White ATL 5 1 5 0 1.5
You should have known better than to draft a Falcons receiver.
Santana Moss WAS 4 3 69 0 13.3
Looked absolutely electric�cbut only 4 targets? That will change if the Skins like winning.
Nate Washington PIT 4 2 32 1 12.2
Even with Roehtlisberger, Nate won’t get enough looks to be considered a serious option.
Devery Henderson NO 4 3 44 0 7.4
Keep him on your radar, but he’s worthless at this point.
Bryan Gilmore SF 4 2 19 0 6.3
Only in deep 40-team leagues.
David Givens TEN 4 3 27 0 5.7
Wasn’t even supposed to play so ignore the numbers. Still a solid bench option.
Reche Caldwell NE 4 2 33 0 5.3
Gabriel will pass him. Same with every other warm body the Pats manage to acquire.
Samie Parker KC 4 2 24 0 4.4
If you were hoping Samie would have value, it’s time to let go. Enter Rod Gardner.
Arnaz Battle SF 4 2 17 0 3.7
How desperate can you be?
Robert Ferguson GB 4 2 17 0 3.7
Graciously handing your job over to a rookie, and again to a drunk, is never a good sign.
Eddie Kennison KC 4 1 14 0 3.5
Ugh. Kennison now has a Huard throwing to him. Good news: defenses will stack the box.
Mark Clayton BAL 4 2 18 0 3.2
He has two weeks to show us something.
Brandon Lloyd WAS 4 0 0 0 0.0
According to Theismann, Lloyd is a Jerry Rice clone�cbut I think he meant to say clown.
Bernard Berrian CHI 3 1 49 1 11.9
Don’t be the guy who adds a WR to his roster just because he scored a TD.
Troy Brown NE 3 2 18 1 9.8
Like I was saying�c
Bryant Johnson ARI 3 2 51 0 7.1
Makes you wonder what he do if he didn�ft have 2 of the leagues’ best WR’s in front of him.
Josh Reed BUF 3 3 40 0 7.0
Please no.
Peerless Price BUF 3 3 25 0 5.5
Faster than the speed of suck.
Greg Lewis PHI 3 3 24 0 5.4
Lost in translation. Not sure what that meant, it just sounded cool.
Justin McCareins NYJ 3 2 34 0 5.4
McCareins has officially been kicked in the McCrotch by Cotchery.
Roscoe Parrish BUF 3 2 20 0 4.0
Great little college player. Just plain little in the NFL.
Ronald Curry OAK 3 1 21 0 3.1
It will be interesting to see what happens once Oakland scraps the 17-step drop.
Eddie Drummond DET 3 1 2 0 1.8
Return man with a wussy name.
Chris Henry CIN 3 1 -5 0 0.5
Negative five. There is a joke in there somewhere.
Joey Galloway TB 3 0 0 0 0.0
Keep in mind that Galloway was shut out twice last season. Great time to acquire him.
Tim Carter NYG 3 0 0 0 0.0
Sleeper! Shut out by Indy, but PHI will have just 3 CB’s on their roster this weekend.
Troy Walters ARI 2 2 15 1 9.5
His best game of 2006.
Eric Parker SD 2 1 38 0 6.8
So what if he’s the WR2? With 11 pass attempts, it wouldn’t matter if he were the WR1.
Tab Perry CIN 2 2 44 0 6.4
Stole Henry’s thunder in the absense of Houshmandzilly,
Nate Burleson SEA 2 1 36 0 4.6
Would have scored had Hass hit him in stride. Could be last weekend to make a splash.
Travis Taylor MIN 2 1 24 0 3.4
I still think he’s the Vikings WR2�cwhich, unfortunately, doesn’t account for much.
Derek Hagan MIA 2 1 14 0 2.4
Talented, but stuck behind Booker & Welker.
Kelley Washington CIN 2 1 10 0 2.0
Nothing to see here.
Santonio Holmes PIT 2 1 6 0 1.6
He will slowly be integrated into the offense, but won’t have value this season.
Ashley Lelie ATL 2 1 5 0 1.5
As if Lelie weren’t already worthless enough, he now plays in WR hell.
Josh Cribbs CLE 2 0 0 0 0.0
Moves up to #3 on the Browns depth chart�cwhich is the equivelent of #6 on most teams.
Cedrick Wilson PIT 2 0 0 0 0.0
Where was he on Thursday?
Brad Smith NYJ 1 1 13 0 4.0
Generic name. Generic game.
Billy McMullen MIN 1 1 22 0 3.2
Has the name of a 5-year old, but he’s actually much older.
James Thrash WAS 1 1 19 0 2.9
Go away.
Keenan McCardell SD 1 1 18 0 2.8
SD isn’t going to throw 11 passes every week, but McCardell owners should be worried.
D.J. Hackett SEA 1 1 14 0 2.4
Even less value with Branch in the mix.
Alvis Whitted OAK 1 1 12 0 2.2
He and Curry will take turns tucking Brooks shoulder pad back under his jersey.
Demetrius Williams BAL 1 1 9 0 1.9
Former Oregon WR passed Moore on depth chart, but has no value.
Kevin Walter HOU 1 1 8 0 1.8
No doubt those 8 yards made his family proud.
Hank Baskett PHI 1 0 0 0 0.0
Hello Stallworth.
Terrance Copper NO 1 0 0 0 0.0
Not much value as the Saints 6th WR.
Patrick Crayton DAL 1 0 0 0 0.0
No more leftovers for Crayton.
Kevin Curtis STL 1 0 0 0 0.0
Minimal value without Martz.
Todd Devoe DEN 1 0 0 0 0.0
Bell, Biv, Devoe. Now you know. That joke just never gets old.
Ike Hilliard TB 1 0 0 0 0.0
At least he’s still collecting paychecks.
Brandon Jones TEN 1 0 0 0 0.0
Had a good camp/preseason but there is just too much depth at the position.
Dane Looker STL 1 0 0 0 0.0
Looker. He’ll be doing a lot of that this season.
Shaun McDonald STL 1 0 0 0 0.0
If Curtis can’t get looks, McDonald certainly won’t.
Aaron Moorehead IND 1 0 0 0 0.0
Even at my age it’s hard not to snicker at his last name.

SCHEDULE ADVANTAGE for FREE AGENT WR’S







In a week or two, there will be an additional section regarding FA WR’s you might consider adding to your team, and I pride myself in targeting those
FA’s a week early so you can a) get their points and b) not have to fight your league for them on the waiver wire after they already went off. This early in
the season however, it really isn’t necessary. There are a few obvious options like Jerricho Cotchery, Marques Colston, Michael Jenkins and perhaps
Reggie Williams, but the rest of the landscape is no different than it was prior to Week 1. So unless you made an error on draft day, you are probably
better off sitting tight to see how your roster plays out this weekend. After all, you drafted those guys for a reason.

Also, if you haven’t seen it yet, I have included a handy schedule on the second page for easy reference. Just click the tab below that says “Schedule.”
