Fantasy Football Cheat Sheet: Wide Receiver Rankings Week 2

Stefon Diggs showed up in a big way against New Orleans in Week 1

Week 2 wide receiver rankings for fantasy football are here and Week 1 left many fantasy owners scratching their heads, for different reasons. Antonio Brown and Stefon Diggs stole the show in Week 1 while Julio Jones and A.J. Green were pedestrian. Big stars Odell Beckham Jr. and Mike Evans both didn’t play due to injury or weather and there weren’t many big-name stars that put up monster performances.

 

So what’s in store for Week 2? Jones tops the ranks easily for me since he faces one of the league's worst secondaries in Green Bay, a team he happened to scorch in the playoffs last season to the tune of 180 yards and two touchdowns. Brown is still No. 2, but he faces my beloved Vikings who happen to have a knack at shutting down elite receivers. Brown is a whole different animal, but we shall see.

 

These are sure to change the closer we get to kick off on Sunday morning so be sure to check back often.
