Injuries causes some movement in the Scouts Inc. playoff receivers rankings. Antonio Gates' toe injury knocked San Diego's receiving corps down while questions about Terrell Owens' ankle made it impossible to get a good read on Dallas' receivers.
Tom Brady have some weapons at receiver. Wes Welker acts as an extension of New England's running game. He is consistently open from the slot and allows the Patriots to control the clock through the air. Jabar Gaffney, Donte' Stallworth and Ben Watson have all had their moments this year. Each player can exploit single coverage and come up with a big play when New England needs it most. Oh yeah, they also have this guy Randy Moss who is a pretty good player as well.
