Andre Johnson is currently the A-list receiver in Houston, but Hopkins might be the wave of the future after punctuating a dominant day with a game-winning touchdown catch in overtime to beat Tennessee on Sunday. The rookie from Clemson was targeted 13 times, caught seven passes for 117 yards and averaged 16.7 yards per catch. He's already caught four passes of 20+ yards this season, and from the looks of things, he'll be a scoring threat in the red zone as well.

Norv Turner (that's two Norv references in one column, I apologize) loves tight ends, so it was natural to assume Cameron would get plenty of opportunities in Cleveland. So far so good as he's second in tight end targets and receiving yards behind Jimmy Graham and is tied with Graham for most receptions by a tight end. The return of Josh Gordon this week from a two-game suspension will take pressure off Cameron, who essentially served as the Browns' only viable receiving threat against the Ravens in Week 2. Now, if he can survive Jason Campbell at quarterback, Cameron will be upgraded to a top-6 overall fantasy TE.
