-Calvin Johnson has been unstoppable this season as he piles up the touchdowns.  The guy is an amazing athletic freak and has moved ahead of Andre Johnson and Roddy White since the season has begun.  The Matthew Stafford improvement surely helps without a doubt this season.
-Johnson and White are still doing their thing with great success so no issues there.  I also correctly predicted the comeback season of Miles Austin who has a tremendous rapport with QB Tony Romo.  Unfortunately he got hurt but he should be back in Week 6.
-Brandon Marshall and Dwayne Bowe are sliding down and that's due to the shoddy QB play in their offenses.  I said in the summer that Bowe would be a bust this season after saying he was a sleeper in 2010.  I would say I have a good feel for the guy.
-David Nelson has been the breakout star of this bunch so far this season.  Chan Gailey's passing heavy offense is perfectly suited to Nelson who plays the hot slot position.  Great value.
-Wes Welker is a guy I reach for every season since I play in a PPR league and his raw catches are just ridiculous.  The 16-catch gem in Week 3 underscore just how awesome he is.
-Mike Williams from Tampa Bay has been off to a slow start but I think he will be fine as we move along.  Hold the fort.
-AJ Green or Julio Jones?  Should be a fun debate for many year into the future.
-Reggie Wayne is keeping himself afloat despite the QB problems in Indy.  The same cant be said about Pierre Garcon and Austin Collie who you should release outright.

That's how I see it.  Let me know what you think.
