The Rams don't resemble the "Greatest Show on Turf" these days and Sam Bradford is in the running for most underwhelming No. 1 draft pick ever, yet Pettis has been the recipient of four of Bradford's ten touchdown passes. Two of those came Sunday to go along with 49 yards receiving. Pettis isn't going to light the world on fire, but he's finding the end zone, which is something counterpart Tavon Austin isn't doing.

Fred Davis hasn't materialized this season and the Redskins have made it clear they want Reed to become their number one tight end. The rookie appears to be ready for Sunday's game against Dallas after missing Washington's last game in Oakland with a thigh injury. That's good news because the Cowboys are giving up more fantasy points (13.4) to tight ends a week than anyone other than the Vikings or Dolphins (tied at 14). Furthermore, as the Redskins continue to develop Robert Griffin III into a more conventional drop back passer, expect him to look to Reed as a safety valve with regularity.
