Calvin Johnson, LionsMoving Up
After dropping off some due to trouble at QB, Johnson has begun to reclaim his role as a top WR threat.  Johnson has finally found the same page as Shaun Hill and with Stafford coming back soon; the future looks brighter than it did a couple weeks ago.

Donald Driver/Greg Jennings, PackersMoving Up/Moving Down
2010 is beginning to look very similar to 2009 with Driver and Jennings.  Jennings should be the big gun, but so far it is Driver that keeps putting up the numbers.  The reality is that both have been targeted 26 times, but Driver has caught all but five, while Jennings has caught less than 50%.  Both have three touchdowns though, which is what keeps Jennings worth starting at the moment. 

Mark Clayton, RamsMoving Up
Clayton is sixth in targets among wide receivers, so opportunity is going to keep coming.  Bradford is locked in on him big time.  He’s not putting up stud numbers yet but he’s as solid as they come right now week in and week out, and with the looks he’s getting, he should keep improving.

Larry Fitzgerald, CardinalsMoving Down
Larry drops again as a rookie now moves into the starting quarterback slot in all likelihood.  While Max Hall no doubt will be as good as Derek Anderson when he steps on the field, the upside just isn’t there at this point.  If you can trade him now it might be a good idea. 

Brandon Lloyd, BroncosMoving Up
A week here or there is a fluke.  Three weeks in a row is a trend.  On a team that can’t run worth a flip Lloyd has been possibly the biggest surprise of the season.  The only negative is that he only has one touchdown.  He’s been targeted 40 times in 4 games and has over 400 yards.  Those aren’t numbers to shy away from, just ride it while it’s hot.

Davone Bess, DolphinsMoving Up
Bess simply catches everything thrown his way.  He’s not on a pass happy offense, but with Brandon Marshall taking the heavy coverage, he’s a nice WR3.  For owners in leagues that reward return yards there’s even more to like.    

Mike Sims-Walker, JaguarsMoving Down
No one really seems to know what’s happening, but Sims-Walker is about to drop off the fantasy football scene all together if something doesn’t change.  With the exception of week two he has been almost non-existent.  If he continues on this road he’ll likely drop out of our top rankings altogether within a couple of weeks.         

Lance Moore, SaintsMoving Up
Moore is taking advantage of Reggie Bush’s absence and performing quite well.  Thanks to a brutal hit last week he missed out on his second touchdown.  He may not keep up the numbers when Bush comes back, but there’s a good argument that he will.  Even if he doesn’t there are a few solid performances to go before then.

Steve Johnson, BillsMoving Up
No receiver on the Bills is going to be a sexy fantasy pickup, but in the bye season Johnson could add a lot of value.  He’s been extremely consistent, but since Fitzpatrick took over as starter he’s had a touchdown each game, making him worthy of note. 

Devin Aromashodu, BearsMoving Down
For all the hype going into the season surrounding Aromashodu, he’s sunk to the bottom of the heap.  Almost every receiver, the tight end and starting running back are all sporting better receiving stats than Devin, and with the recent trouble at QB and offensive line it may be a while before he’s fantasy worthy.
