Stretching the Field Post Week Four

Stretching the Field Post Week Four


Reggie Wayne
I documented Wayne’s success since 2006 against the Jaguars. 14 games and he has had over 1400 yards receiving. He maintained his average of over 100 yards each game with another 100 with a touchdown Sunday. Remarkable numbers and he finished the day with twenty yards a catch.

Jerome Simpson and Greg Jennings
It didn’t take long for the Vikings to see their true assets at receiver in Jennings and Simpson. The formula the Vikings thought they had with AP running the ball, and a duo at receiver to help alleviate the pressure off of AP didn’t help with Christian Ponder at quarterback. Instantly with Cassel the Vikings found success as both Simpson and Jennings had averages of over seventeen yards a catch.

Michael Floyd
While Larry Fitzgerald has played through a nagging hamstring injury, Floyd has been able to step up on the field. He had another solid day with five catches and a near 90 yards receiving. Arizona has played on the road against two strong defenses in the Saints and Bucs. With home games upcoming, Floyd should see an even higher rise in production.

Victor Cruz
The Giants gave more effort in Sunday’s loss to the Chiefs. They had a shot to pull it out up until the last part of the third quarter. Special team’s coverage proved to be the back breaker to this Giants loss. Eli moved around a bit more and Cruz had a typical game by his standards with ten catches and over 160 yards.

Alshon Jeffrey
The Bears have weapons all over the field and Jeffrey’s appears to be the latest weapon to step up. He got a lot of his yardage with the Bears down 40-16, but helped erase that lead to 40-32. As teams keep doubling up Brandon Marshall, Jeffrey’s will have more opportunities to be a fantasy asset. Keep in mind he missed some games last year due to injury.

Torrey Smith
There was no doubt that Smith should post quality numbers against a Bills secondary with injuries and susceptible to the long ball. Even with Flacco struggling Sunday, Smith had a strong enough game to almost carry the Ravens to victory. He averaged over 30 yards a catch and finished with over 160 yards on the day.
Robert Woods
EJ Manuel and the Bills offense has been up and down for four weeks. They’ve done just enough to capture two close wins at home. It’s far from being even a top twenty offense right now. Some of that has to do with CJ Spiller not rushing as a top five back thus far. Woods had himself a fair game with four catches for eighty yards, including the lone big pass play touchdown of the day.
