Wide Receiver Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 2

Justin Jefferson, Minnesota Vikings

Adam Thielen had two touchdowns in Week 1, but is it Justin Jefferson's turn in Week 2?

Fantasy managers can look back on Week 1 and either applaud or regret their choices on who to start. Davante Adams, who was ranked as a clear WR1, underperformed (as did the entire Packers offense). Tyreek Hill and Amari Cooper had excellent games (perhaps the best of Cooper's season... is it all downhill from here?). Managers need to wonder if they are going to repeat their success or if others will step in. For Dallas, Michael Gallup is now out and on IR, so it may lead to more looks for Cooper.

Rookie Ja'Marr Chase had more than 100 yards and a touchdown. He's ranked as a WR2 this week and he will likely be a WR2 all season. He will certainly have games where he looks great, and he will likely have games where he doesn't crack the top 20. In Minnesota, Adam Thielen had two touchdowns and it was a quiet day for Justin Jefferson. For Week 2, Jefferson is ranked higher than Thielen, but both are WR1s.
