Fantasy WR Rankings Week 3: Who to begin, sit at large receiver in fantasy soccer



Rank Participant 1 DeAndre Hopkins, ARI @ JAX 2 Tyreek Hill, KC vs. LAC 3 Davante Adams, GB @ SF 4 Tyler Lockett, SEA @ MIN 5 Stefon Diggs, BUF vs. WAS 6 DK Metcalf, SEA @ MIN 7 Keenan Allen, LAC @ KC 8 Calvin Ridley, ATL @ NYG 9 Cooper Kupp, LAR vs. TB. It is time to view Kupp as a top-10 play on the place this 12 months, no matter format. He is at present No. 1 in PPR leagues and No. 2 in normal over the primary two weeks. That mentioned, the Tampa Bay protection continues to be a scary matchup, despite the fact that their weak point is at cornerback. They will no less than have some solutions to restrict Kupp so we do not have him on the prime this week, however his upside appears like the general WR1 any given week. 10 Justin Jefferson, MIN vs SEA. Jefferson, Adam Thielen, and Ok.J. Osborn are all contained in the top-30 WRs in both format, however weirdly sufficient, Jefferson is third amongst Vikings’ wideouts in FPPG. This could right itself with time, and the Seahawks protection does not scare anybody within the backend. You can most likely even play all three receivers in the identical lineup and get strong manufacturing. Osborn hasn’t fairly climbed our rankings dramatically but, but when he has one other good recreation, he’ll certainly ascend much more than he has. 11 Adam Thielen, MIN vs. SEA. See Justin Jefferson. 12 CeeDee Lamb, DAL vs. PHI. As suspected, Lamb and Amari Cooper will take turns being the No.1 WR in Dallas week to week. In Week 2, it was Lamb who led all Cowboys’ pass-catchers with 9 targets. The Eagles’ secondary truly appears respectable, so we’ll see how productive the Cowboys’ wideouts are. We’re positive whichever WR we rank decrease would be the one who emerges that week, however the excellent news is each at all times have top-12 upside. 13 Allen Robinson, CHI @ CLE. Robinson would’ve been a whole bust in Week 2 if he hadn’t scored a landing. He caught simply two-of-four targets for twenty-four yards and did not look to have an early reference to Justin Fields. The Browns’ secondary did not look all that spectacular vs. Houston, so it may very well be time for Robinson to lastly emerge this season. We’ll see how Fields takes care of a full week with the first-team offense (assuming Andy Dalton’s bum knee retains him out). 14 Chris Godwin, TB @ LAR. It is powerful to inform who Jalen Ramsey will cowl on this matchup, however we suspect it is going to be Mike Evans. With Godwin working out of the slot, he is most likely the least prone to be shadowed by Ramsey. That mentioned, he may very well be the focus of the Buccaneers offense this week. Antonio Brown solely caught one go vs. Atlanta, however he ought to see a bounce-back efficiency if he avoids Ramsey. Since Evans is the possible Ramsey sufferer, he has bust potential written throughout him. 15 Courtland Sutton, DEN vs. NYJ. Sutton had a profession day with 9 catches on 12 targets and 159 yards. He’s the present league chief air yards (the quantity of yards the ball travels within the air on a passing play, from the road of scrimmage to contact level.) with 301, so clearly, Teddy Bridgewater is keen to push the ball down the sphere to him. He will get one other juicy matchup with the Jets in Week 3 at residence, so wheels up for Sutton. 16 A.J. Brown, TEN vs. IND. Brown struggled mightily at Seattle, however he often does not keep down lengthy. He nonetheless led all Titans with 9 targets however secured simply three for 43 yards. In the meantime, Julio Jones drew eight targets and caught six of them for 128 yards and had a landing reversed in a controversial ruling. Is that this an indication Julio goes to take over the No. 1 WR job? We do not know but, so for now, we’ll have Brown ranked forward of him. Make no mistake, although, you need to be taking part in each of those guys. The Colts’ protection hasn’t proven they’ve bother towards high-flying passing offenses. 17 D.J. Moore, CAR @ HOU. Moore appears comfy with Sam Darnold early, and it paid off to the tune of 11 targets, eight catches, 87 yards, and a landing in Week 2. Houston’s protection needs to be a main candidate for Moore to construct on his glorious efficiency. It appears he is lastly establishing himself because the bona fide No. 1 WR, whereas Robby Anderson is now again to his deep-threat function. 18 Brandin Cooks, HOU vs. CAR. It does not matter who the quarterback is for Houston — Cooks goes to be closely focused. In Week 2 at Cleveland, Cooks drew 14 targets, catching 9 for 78 yards and a landing. The following closest Texans had been a foursome that had two targets every. If Davis Mills is beginning (and it positive appears like he’ll), he’ll depend on Cooks. He refuses to be mediocre no matter his environment. His PPR flooring is excessive, however he additionally has a top-notch upside along with his deep-threat potential. 19 Terry McLaurin, WAS @ BUF. Backup quarterbacks usually rely closely on their stud WR. This was the case in Taylor Heinicke’s first begin of the season vs. Giants, as he focused McLaurin 14 instances, yielding 11 catches for 107 yards and a landing. It is fairly easy actually — backup quarterbacks are backups for a purpose, they usually do not flourish at going by a full possession of reads, so that they lock in on their No. 1 WR. So, in a method, this can be a good factor for McLaurin. Nevertheless, he’ll get the Tre’Davious White therapy as Washington travels to Buffalo, so we’ll see how environment friendly he’s with these targets. 20 Marquise Brown, BAL @ DET. Evidently, Brown is on tempo for a real breakout season. By two weeks, he is netted 12 catches for 182 yards and two touchdowns. Whereas we have been accustomed to staying away from the Ravens’ passing assault outdoors of Mark Andrews, Brown is clearly the highest receiving menace within the offense now. Detroit will most likely be backside 5 in fantasy factors allowed to WRs at season’s finish, so we love this matchup. There’s a likelihood this recreation will get out of hand early and the Ravens simply pound the ball, however it might be powerful to justify benching him at this level. 21 Amari Cooper, DAL vs. PHI. See CeeDee Lamb 22 Deebo Samuel, SF vs. GB. Samuel is the No. 1 WR in San Francisco, and he’ll stay in that chair till additional discover. With Brandon Aiyuk within the Kyle Shanahan doghouse, Samuel advantages drastically. He leads the league in receiving yards (282) after two weeks, so it is simple to see why we love him. We’ll see how Inexperienced Bay’s protection appears towards Detroit, however it positive appeared terrible towards the Saints. 23 Antonio Brown, TB @ LAR. See Chris Godwin. 24 DeVonta Smith, PHI @ DAL. This may very well be an enormous breakout recreation for Smith after a serious down week vs. the 49ers in Week 2. Whereas he caught simply two passes for 16 yards, he led all Eagles in targets with seven. His efficiency stung final week, however we at all times like a No. 1 WR in a matchup towards the Cowboys. Jalen Reagor is an OK choice at flex, however there won’t be sufficient passing work to go round. When you’re in tremendous deep leagues and/or are simply feeling harmful, Quez Watkins is a man who will at all times have an opportunity to attain on a deep ball, which is greatest for normal leagues or DFS lineups. 25 Diontae Johnson, PIT vs. CIN. Diontae Johnson appears to be on monitor to play in Week 3, and though the Steelers offense is terrible, Johnson has drawn 22 targets by two weeks. He is an incredible play in PPR leagues for that purpose alone. Juju Smith-Schuster and Chase Claypool additionally obtain their justifiable share of targets on this brief passing recreation, however they’re extra of flex issues. 26 Mike Evans, TB @ LAR. See Chris Godwin. 27 Julio Jones, TEN vs. IND. See A.J. Brown. 28 Sterling Shepard, NYG vs. ATL. Shepard is unexpectedly an incredible play at your flex place. He’s tied for the lead for receptions (16) within the NFL and appears like Daniel Jones’ true No. 1 WR. Kenny Golladay hasn’t been efficient to this point, however possibly he’ll begin being a think about an incredible matchup for WRs vs. Atlanta. If nothing else, he attracts some protection away from Shepard 29 Ja’Marr Chase, CIN vs. PIT. The Raiders had success towards the Steelers protection, however Derek Carr is taking part in at a stage effectively above Joe Burrow. Cincinnati nonetheless has offensive line points, and the Steelers’ entrance seven is not going to let Burrow get comfy. One of many Bengals WRs’ could have a pleasant day certainly, however we will not anticipate all three of them to take action. It is truthfully a crapshoot as to who will lead the crew in fantasy factors amongst WRs, however Chase is our choose this week, regardless of solely having 4 targets final week. Tee Higgins (9 targets) and Tyler Boyd (10 targets) might have one thing to say about that, although. 30 Rondale Moore, ARI @ JAX. Moore is prime 10 within the league in receiving yards (182) and he had a breakout recreation final week, catching seven passes for 114 yards and a landing. In opposition to Jacksonville, we’re concentrating on your complete Cardinals offense this week, together with Christian Kirk. 31 Chase Claypool, PIT vs. CIN. See Diontae Johnson. 32 Robby Anderson, CAR @ HOU. See D.J. Moore 33 DJ Chark, Jaguars, JAX vs. ARI 34 Tee Higgins, CIN @ PIT. See Ja’Marr Chase. 35 Mike Williams, LAC @ KC 36 JuJu Smith-Schuster, PIT vs. CIN. See Diontae Johnson. 37 Michael Pittman Jr., IND @ TEN 38 Marvin Jones, JAX vs. ARI 39 Robert Woods, LAR vs. TB 40 Odell Beckham Jr., CLE vs. CHI 41 Christian Kirk, ARI @ JAX. See Rondale Moore 42 Kenny Golladay, NYG vs. ATL. See Sterling Shepard. 43 Corey Davis, NYJ @ DEN 44 Zach Pascal, IND @ TEN 45 Tim Patrick, DEN vs. NYJ 46 Jaylen Waddle, MIA @ LV 47 Tyler Boyd, CIN @ PIT. See Ja’Marr Chase. 48 Jakobi Meyers, NE vs. NO 49 Sammy Watkins, BAL @ DET 50 Laviska Shenault Jr., JAX vs. ARI 51 Will Fuller V, MIA @ LV 52 Jalen Reagor, PHI @ DAL. See DeVonta Smith. 53 Darnell Mooney, CHI @ CLE 54 Cole Beasley, BUF vs. WAS 55 Ok.J. Osborn, MIN vs. SEA. See Justin Jefferson. 56 Quintez Cephus, DET vs. BAL 57 Nelson Agholor, NE vs. NO 58 DeVante Parker, MIA @ LV 59 Darius Slayton, NYG vs. ATL 60 A.J. Inexperienced, ARI @ JAX 61 Quez Watkins, PHI @ DAL. See DeVonta Smith 62 Marquez Valdes-Scantling, GB @ SF 63 Russell Gage, ATL @ NYG 64 Henry Ruggs III, LV vs. MIA 65 Brandon Aiyuk, SF vs. GB 66 Marquez Callaway, NO @ NE 67 Bryan Edwards, LV vs. MIA 68 Mecole Hardman, KC vs. LAC 69 Hunter Renfrow, LV vs. MIA 70 Emmanuel Sanders, BUF vs. WAS 71 Tyrell Williams, DET vs. BAL 72 KJ Hamler, DEN vs. NYJ 73 Jamison Crowder, NYJ @ DEN 74 Randall Cobb, GB @ SF 75 Deonte Harris, NO @ NE 76 Allen Lazard, GB @ SF 77 Gabriel Davis, BUF vs. WAS 78 Demarcus Robinson, KC vs. LAC 79 Van Jefferson, LAR vs. TB 80 Anthony Schwartz, CLE vs. CHI 81 Terrace Marshall Jr., CAR @ HOU 82 Marquise Goodwin, CHI @ CLE 83 Jalen Guyton, LAC @ KC 84 Braxton Berrios, NYJ @ DEN 85 Dyami Brown, WAS @ BUF 86 Byron Pringle, KC vs. LAC 87 DeSean Jackson, LAR vs. TB 88 D’Wayne Eskridge, SEA @ MIN 89 Kadarius Toney, NYG vs. ATL
