WR Notes: Calvin Johnson missed Wednesday’s practice, but you know the drill. Put him in your starting lineup and wait for the touchdowns to roll in. … Keep an eye on Britt’s hamstring. It flared up in Wednesday’s practice, but the Titans don’t seem overly concerned yet. … Cam Newton has breathed new life into Smith’s career. This is now a top-ten fantasy receiver.


Nicks came out of Monday’s game with no lingering knee issues. He has to be played even in a tough matchup against Nnamdi Asomugha and Asante Samuel. … Welker’s targets should only increase with Aaron Hernandez out of the lineup. … Marshall is playing lights out through two weeks, but will likely see plenty of emerging shutdown corner Joe Haden in Cleveland. … Bryant’s status is up in the air, but the extra day will help in a Monday night matchup against the Redskins.


Stevie Johnson was held out Wednesday to rest his groin, but all signs point to him being in the lineup for a potential shootout against the Pats. … Don’t get too worked up about Harvin’s limited snap count. When he’s in the game, the ball is in his hands. … Branch is a must-start until proven otherwise. … Manningham is expected to play, but he’s yet to practice this week. Make sure he practices Friday before locking him into lineups this week.


As mentioned earlier, Mike Williams isn’t gaining separation from coverage this season. Until he does, the Bucs offense will continue to struggle. … Lloyd returned to practice Wednesday and is expected to play against the Titans. … David Nelson has the look of a target hog with Roscoe Parrish out for the season and Stevie Johnson fighting through a groin injury. … Sims-Walker is the biggest beneficiary of the Danny Amendola elbow injury. … Lance Moore is a safer play now that he’s practicing fully again.
