28. Devante Parker (MIA) @ CIN

Tier 6 – Sexy Flexys

29. Tyrell Williams (SD) vs. NO

30. UPDATE Brandon Marshall (NYJ) vs. SEA – With Decker set to miss the game, a few targets should open up for Marshall, particularly if the Jets make it down into the red zone (lolz)

31. Steve Smith (BAL) vs. OAK

32. Will Fuller (HOU) vs. TEN

33. Sterling Shepard (NYG) @ MIN



Tier 7 – Startable Names

34. Jamison Crowder (WAS) vs. CLE

35. Phillip Dorsett (IND)  @ JAC

36. Cole Beasley (DAL) @ SF

37. Golden Tate (DET) @ CHI

38.  Allen Hurns (JAC) vs. IND

39. John Brown (ARI) vs. LA – This ranking mixes in some of Michael Floyd’s uncertainty, and Brown would rise a bit more if his absence is confirmed.

40. Sammie Coats (PIT) vs. KC – With Markus Wheaton struggling and Eli Rogers set to miss the game, Coates could have some real upside. He’s been consistently targeted on deep routes, and this might just be the week one connects.

41. Quincy Enunwa (NYJ) vs. SEA UPDATE – Enunwa should see a few more targets come his way with Decker out, but this might not matter against a ferocious Seahawks D. If they can be beat, though, it’s via the slot. Enunwa might have sneaky upside.

42. Tajae Sharpe (TEN) @ HOU

43. Michael Thomas (NO) @ SD

Tier 8 – Desperation is a smelly cologne

44. Kenny Stills (MIA) @ CIN

45. Kevin White (CHI) vs. DET

46. Tyler Lockett (SEA) @ NYJ

47.  Tavon Austin (LA) @ ARI

48. Chris Hogan (NE) vs. BUF

49. Torrey Smith (SF) vs. DAL

50.  Ted Ginn (CAR) @ ATL
