News: Virginia Tech wide receiver D.J. Coles erupted for seven catches, 116 yards and a touchdown in the ACC Championship against Clemson.
Analysis: Coles is a name to file away. Jarrett Boykin and Danny Coale graduate, and Marcus Davis has been an enigma. 2012 figures to be a breakout season for one of these two wideouts, and I think Coles will be worth a gamble.
News: Virginia Tech wide receivers Jarrett Boykin (hamstring) and Marcus Davis (foot) are not listed on the Hokies' injury report, and are set to play Saturday against Clemson.
Analysis: Huge news for the Hokies, but not so much in fantasy circles. Both can be sneaky plays against a Clemson team not known for it's defense. VT is going to have to pass some. Boykin is the safer bet here as a WR4 at best, but Davis has been known to pull out a three catch, 150 yard, two TD performance.
News: A sprained foot limited Virginia Tech wide receiver Marcus Davis to just one catch and four yards against Marshall.
Analysis: Davis joins Jarrett Boykin (hamstring) and Dyrell Roberts (broken arm, out for season) as Hokies who could miss Saturday's clash with Clemson.

News: Virginia Tech wide receiver Jarrett Boykin (hamstring) will miss Saturday's game versus Marshall.
Analysis: With Boykin and Dyrell Roberts (broken arm) out, 'Tech's remaining receivers make sneaky plays. Teams continue to stack the box and force the Hokies to pass, so give Danny Coale, D.J. Coles and Marcus Davis some consideration.
News: Davis had four catches for 81 yards and two touchdowns on Saturday against UNC.
Analysis: Break out game for the "physical freak" Davis, who scored his first two touchdowns of the year. No telling whether this game was an aberration, but give Davis a good look if he's available in any of your leagues.
News: Davis, who Hokies quarterback Tyrod Taylor refers to as "the biggest physical freak" on the team, appears poised for a breakout year in 2010, the Virginian-Pilot reports.
Analysis: Davis has thus far underachieved in his time with Virginia Tech, grabbing just five passes as a redshirt freshman in 2009. Receivers coach Kevin Sherman believes, however, that Davis "has potential to have a breakout year," and took a step in the right direction spending the summer working on better pass-catching skills. "He just keeps getting better and better every day," Sherman says of the 6-4, 230-pound Sherman. "He's making plays and producing. With a guy that size, who can run like that, he's special."

Analysis: He's still too far down on the depth chart for viable fantasy value, but could emerge later in the season.
