Just look at some of the recent examples: Randy Moss (one point in Week 14); Larry Fitzgerald (three points in Week 12 and two points in Week 14); and Roddy White (four points in Week 14 and three points in Week 15).

The best medicine for this kind of slump is a favorable matchup, and that's what this week's Cornerback Corner will focus on -- big-name wideouts who should score big-time points against underperforming opponents.
