News:Chris Harper led all Wildcat receivers on Saturday with four catches for 51 yards in a win over Iowa State.

Analysis: "Top receivers" isn't saying much in this offense as the Wildcats rank dead last by a landslide in passing in the conference, but losing these two only makes it worse. Their absences should open the door for Chris Harper to receive more targets.
News: Kansas State wide receiver Chris Harper took a few years to get used to the transitions from quarterback to wide receiver, but he is now by far the leading wideout for the Wildcats with 17 receptions for 189 yards and two touchdowns.
Analysis: These may still seem like pedestrian numbers for a number one receiver, but that can be attributed to quarterback Collin Klein's ability to take off running - he does it often. Keep an eye on Harper should K-State look to try and avoid a Klein injury and have him drop back more looking to pass.
News: Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein has been a fantasy stud thanks to his willingness to take off running and take big hits. He'll go up against a sub-par Baylor defense on Saturday and look to put up another big day statistically.
Analysis: There aren't any receivers worth starting out of K-State (leading receiver Chris Harper only has 122 yards) and Klein has been the only Wildcat worth starting so far this season, but makes up for it with his big time fantasy numbers. Look for another solid performance Saturday afternoon.
News: The man who rushed the most times for Kansas State Saturday night was quarterback Collin Klein, who ran 25 times for 78 yards. Klein also went 13 for 21 with 128 yards, one touchdown and one interception to go along with a lost fumble.
Analysis: Klein's interception and fumble were just two of five turnovers the Wildcats committed against FCS opponent Eastern Kentucky. Klein's fantasy numbers weren't terrible and showed he can be a decent threat on the ground. He also made a clutch 37-yard pass to Chris Harper for the game winning touchdown late in the fourth quarter.
News: Harper had four receptions for 74 yards and a touchdown on Saturday.
Analysis: While he has no fantasy relevance this season, the athletic Harper could be a sleeper next year if a starting spot opens up.

Analysis: The Oregon transfer has not factored into the passing game much for the Wildcats, and combined with the struggles of quarterback Carson Coffman, is not worth a roster spot at this time.
News: Harper, a transfer from the University of Oregon, will not be in the running for starting quarterback with the Wildcats, but, instead, will focus on playing at wide receiver, where it is believed he'll be a major contributor starting this fall, ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Harper runs 4.5 and comes in at 6-1 and 234 pounds, making him the type of player that could be used at multiple positions in Bill Snyder's offense.
News:The Kansas City Star reports former Oregon quarterback Chris Harper, who left the team following spring practice, has decided to transfer to Kansas State. Harper, who will have to redshirt in 2009 due to transfer rules but will have three years of eligibility remaining, will work at quarterback once he is eligible in 2010. The Ducks were going to use Harper at wide receiver and running back in the fall with Jeremiah Masoli returning at quarterback. "I;m definitely going to be a quarterback," Harper said.
Analysis: Harper got a chance to quarterback for Oregon early in the season in 2008 as a true freshman when injuries depleted the depth chart. But when Masoli seemed to have a firm grasp of the offense, Oregon went with the former fifth-string QB and didn't look back. It seemed Harper was OK during the spring with the position change, but changed his mind and opted to transfer closer to home. He could be a standout option for K-State in 2010 since Bill Snyder has a knack for developing quarterbacks, but Harper can be ignored in Fantasy in '09.
