Julio Jones got off to a strong start with 10 catches and 169 yards in Week 1
Week 2 of the fantasy football season is upon us and the good news when it comes to wide receivers is that most of the big hitters among the top 20 performed relative to their draft position in Week 1. Julio Jones had a ton of targets and yards but no touchdowns, which seems to be his M.O. the past few seasons. Odell Beckham Jr. had a similar type of outing (catches, yards but no TDs), but at least he made it through healthy.
One or both of these studs could find their way into the end zone this week, but it's not like you weren't going to start either if they are on your team in the first place. It's the middle-of-the-pack, flex and WR3 options you will likely spend the most time ruminating over. For example, can a guy like DeSean Jackson, who is dealing with a concussion, match is Week 1 output?
There are some in the upper tiers worth debating. Will Davante Adams work his magic against Minnesota's stout defense? I doubt it, but then again I am a Vikings fan. As for the rankings, there are plenty of options beyond the top guys that should be relatively safe from a target/reception standpoint, especially in PPR leagues, as well as offer some touchdown upside.
As always be sure to check back closer to Sunday for any last-minute tweaks to these rankings.
