1. Justin Blackmon — Oklahoma State vs. Kansas. Blackmon ran circles around Texas A&M cornerback Terrence Frederick in Week 4, totaling 121 yards and one touchdown on 11 receptions. Expect more of the same this week as Kansas ranks last in the Big 12 and among the worst statistical defenses in the nation (see above section on Joseph Randle). Blackmon is a plug-and-play WR1 in all formats.
2. Kendall Wright — Baylor vs. Iowa State. Wright caught nine passes for 201 yards and three touchdowns in Baylor’s 36-35 loss to Kansas State in Week 5. As Griffin's go-to guy, there isn’t a better situation for consistent targets in college football. Projections in the 90/1110/10 range would place him among the elite at his position, but look to be consistent with his first quarter production.
3. Sammy Watkins — Clemson vs. Boston College. After being held to three catches for 38 yards last week, Watkins is a strong bounceback candidate against a Boston College team that yields an average of 250 passing yards per game and 403 yards of total offense. Defensive back Donnie Fletcher is a physical corner that lacks the speed to maintain Watkins vertically and in space. Clemson has beat ranked opponents handily in three consecutive weeks, and the Eagles are decidedly not a top 25 program.
4. Jordan White — Western Michigan vs. Bowling Green. White is off to another impressive campaign, going for 55/668/5 in his first five games and ranking second nationally in both receptions and yards. The emergence of senior WR Chleb Ravenell should allow for more one-on-one matchups, with Ravenell creating pressure and drawing attention to the opposite side of the field. The Broncos are 21st in the NCAA in passing offense (301.8) and 56th overall in points scored.
5. Da’Rick Rogers — Tennessee vs. Georgia. Rogers is the primary receiving target in the Volunteers high-volume passing offense with star WR Justin Hunter (knee) out for the season. Few players have more athletic talent than the 6-foot-3, 215-pound Rogers, who was an AJC Super 11 selection at Calhoun High. Georgia DB Sanders Commings is a standout performer in his own right, but there’s no reason to think he won’t hit his projections this week. Tennessee ranks second in the SEC in both passing yards and touchdowns, and first overall in completion percentage.
