News:Lanear Sampson caught five passes for 69 yards and two touchdowns in Baylor's win over SMU on Sunday.

Analysis: This included a 66-yard connection with Robert Griffin.Tight end Jerod Monk and receiver Lanear Sampson also caught touchdowns for the Bears. The Griffin-Wright combo is quite fruitful for those who own both fantasy studs.
News: Baylor wide receiver Terrance Williams made six catches for 126 yards and two touchdowns against TCU and proved to be a nice complement to number one wide out Kendall Wright.
Analysis: Even with the loss of Josh Gordon to Utah, the Bears' wide receiving corps is deep and Williams' performance shows it. Along with Kendall and Williams, Lanear Sampson had an impressive catch down the sideline for 64 yards and a touchdown, his only reception of the game.
News: As you can tell by the analysis on BaylorFans.com, the Bears are loaded at wide receiver and just happen to have one of the nation's best passers throwing to them. Manning the inside is speedy Kendall Wright and freshman phenom Tevin Reese. On the perimeter Robert Griffin has tall, speedy targets in Josh Gordon (17.0 yards per catch) and Terrence Williams. Lanear Sampson rounds out the group.
Analysis: Gordon could see a huge bump in production this year as long as he can be a bit more consistent. Reese will have to contend with Wright for targets but is a star in the making. As long as Art Briles is coaching Baylor there will be some fantasy stars, and this year is no exception.
News: Sampson hauled in nine catches for 62 yards in Baylor's 55-7 win over Kansas Saturday.

News: Sampson has looked impressive in both of Baylor's scrimmages this fall, catching a 34-yard touchdown pass on a fourth-and-four play in the first and a 10 yard score in the second, ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Sampson continues to prove himself a go-to target for quarterback Robert Griffin during fall camp and appears to be developing into a strong alternative to veteran mainstay at wideout, Kendall Wright. With plenty of speed to burn (he was clocked at 4.34 in the 40), Sampson looks poised to improve upon a 2009 season in which he grabbed 29 passes for 297 yards and two touchdowns, and could prove a respectable receiving option for fantasy owners looking for players from Big XII rosters.
