Three Bronco’s receivers -- Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker, and Eric Decker -- make it to tier 1 this week. Anyone in the top 3 tiers is capable of producing WR1 numbers this week. Rueben Randle, Harry Douglass, and Michael Floyd are all on a fast rise.
Wide receiver’s get shaky in tier 4 this week. Denarius Moore, Brian Hartline, Steve Johnson, Greg Jennings, and Jeremy Kerley are all primary targets on their respective teams, but are relying on non-elite quarterbacks. Julian Edelman’s value has dropped with the return of Rob Gronkowski. Similarly, Percy Harvin’s possible return knocks down Golden Tate’s value.
Four WR injuries will have to be monitored into the weekend: Roddy White, James Jones, Danny Amendola, and Percy Harvin.
