Jason Witten, Cowboys Similar story here with Witten going off during the last two weeks to the tune of 19 catches for 263 yards. However, it does look like the Cowboys are using Roy Williams as their main option in the red zone. Alex Smith, 49ers Its official the 49ers have morphed into a passing team and Smith is reaping the fantasy reward of that. In the last three games, hes passed for 769 yards, seven touchdowns and only one interception.
Hes worthy of a start in two of the next three weeks avoid using him in Week 15 against the Eagles. Santonio Holmes, Steelers With 131 yards and a score in Week One, Holmes seemed ready to enjoy a breakout year in 2009. However, he failed to find the end zone again until Week 12 but has touchdowns in each of the last two games. With Hines Ward out this week, expect more targets for Holmes. Pierre Garcon, Colts Garcon shredded a pretty decent Titans secondary this week with 136 yards on six receptions. Devin Thomas, Redskins The situation in Washington isnt a promising one but the bottom line is that Thomas has been used more and produced more since Sherman Lewis took over the play calling duties from Jim Zorn.
This week it resulted in 100 yards and two touchdowns on seven catches Maybe the light has gone on for Thomas. Moving DownFrank Gore, 49ers 117 yards on 32 carries sounds like what Gore might put up in a single game. Unfortunately for his fantasy owners, thats what hes put up in the last three games. Over that span, hes been targeted 18 times and has 147 receiving yards and no touchdowns plus hes been usurped by Antonio Gates as the teams top red zone target. That could change as soon as this week but as of now, hes dropped to WR2 status.
