Braylon Edwards, Browns - Moving Up
It’s official, Edwards is a stud.  Regardless of the opponent, good defense or bad, he is finding ways to not only get yards, but get in the end zone.  He’ll likely be a top five pick in next year’s fantasy draft, if not higher.  Imagine what he’d do with a good team and quarterback around him.

Chris Chambers, Chargers - Moving Up
The dividends of the trade out west paid out immediately.  He won’t turn into a top ten stud, but will score plenty of touchdowns with low yardage outings.  He won’t be the number one option, but will be used regularly.  Look for his numbers to be solid but not spectacular week in and week out.

Kevin Walter, Texans - Moving Up
One more week and one more argument that Walter will be the number two guy when Johnson returns.  Until then he’s number one without a doubt.  If not for the injury issues at quarterback he’d be even more consistent, but as it is he’s not hurting anyone’s feelings.  He’s left Andre Davis and Jacoby Jones in his dust and likely will leave them there. 

Greg Jennings, Packers - Moving Up
Favre likes to spread it around, but he’s been locking on to Jennings more lately which has to move him up in the rankings.  It’s a volatile place to be, but all Packer receivers have outstanding potential…you just have to know when to start them.

Lee Evans, Bills - Moving Up         
It isn’t happening fast, but Lee is finally moving in the right direction.  Quarterback issues appear ready to plague him the rest of this year and maybe beyond, but as he proved last year, he should be able to over come this.  Problem is, he hasn’t had much luck this year until the past couple of weeks.  If the trend continues he’ll reclaim a top near the top of the list before too long.

Dennis Northcutt, Jaguars - Moving Down
I’m not sure if it’s just the fact that Garrard isn’t starting or not, but Northcutt has been absent the past couple of weeks after getting the majority of the action early in the season.  He slips some this week but the hope is he’ll climb again if and when Garrard comes back. 

Vincent Jackson, Chargers - Moving Down
As mentioned previously, it appears the trade for Chambers was the sounding of the death knell for Jackson.  Perhaps he will have a resurgence down the road, but for now he should be benched and anyone better put in his place.   So much for those great dreams of sleeper potential.

David Patten, Saints - Moving Up
It is now very obvious that Patten has become the number two guy in the Big Easy over Devery Henderson.  Both still figure in the offense, but Patten has become someone that Brees is obviously very comfortable with.  The offense is coming around the past few weeks and if they continue Patten will have a nice finish for fantasy owners.

Brandon Jones, Titans - Moving Down
Vince Young was back this week and no Titan receiver really did all that well, but Jones was notably absent.  Over all this slip was hard to avoid, after all, this is the Titan’s we’re talking about.  There is long term potential here, but don’t look for it much this year.

Andre Davis, Texans - Moving Down
Well, he had a run, a chance at the second fiddle spot in Houston, but he doesn’t look to have seized the opportunity.  When Johnson returns in a few weeks he’ll go back to relative obscurity unless someone else gets hurt.  For now, he’s worth consideration for bye week help, but is a real gamble play.

Drew Bennett, Rams - Moving Up
It appeared, at least for a little while, that the Rams offense was finally clicking the way it was intended.  Bulger was at QB, Jackson was healthy, and Bruce, Holt and Bennett were all involved and on the field.  Then Bulger got banged up a bit and Jackson got hurt again and the whole thing went poof.  However, Bennett did show up in a decent way this week, so he moves up just a bit…still too inconsistent to be relied upon.

* Several top receivers are injured, leading me to not them with an asterisk.  Note that movement with these players is limited, as they in all likelihood will regain their positions when they return.
