WRs – Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, Davante Adams

It was a weird receiving week against the Saints. Everybody seemed to get involved and make an impact…except Jordy Nelson.

Nelson only had 3 catches for 25 yards all game, easily his worst effort of the season.

Expect a bounce-back there; he’s the passing game’s top option and facing a defense that has noone keen to guard him. Chicago gave up 10 catches for 108 yards and 2 TDs earlier this season and has regressed mightily since then.

Where Nelson failed to impact the Saints game, Cobb and Adams stepped up handily. Cobb started off with a huge 70 yard TD and finished with a 5/126/1 line (catches/yards/TDs), while Adams garnered 7 catches for 75 yards.

The focus may again end up on taking Nelson away – though I expect him to produce even if that is the case – but even if it doesn’t these two should join Jordy in producing another strong day from the receiving corps.

Prediction: 90 yards, 1 TD (Nelson), 120 yards, 1 TD (Cobb), 50 yards (Adams)
Verdict: Must-Start (Nelson, Cobb), Worth Consideration (Adams)
