Week 2 WR Starts
START OF THE WEEK: Jerry Jeudy (vs HOU) – Jeudy was a lone bright spot for the mistake-riddled night that the Broncos endured on Monday, which included 2 fumbles on the doorstep that lead to scoreless drives. But Jeudy flashed game-breaking speed, most notably on a 67-yard TD where he stopped to catch the ball, shrugged off a defender and then accelerated past the safety for the score. Jeudy’s talent should continue be showcased in Week 2 in Seattle’s home opener against the Texans.
Gabe Davis (@TEN) – The Bills marched down the field on the opening series of the 2022 NFL Season, and capped off the drive with a 26-yard score by Davis, who was left all alone as the defense bit hard on a Josh Allen play-action. Davis is the clear-cut number 2 in this potent Bills offense alongside Stefon Diggs, and looks to have WR1 upside every single week.
Julio Jones (@NO) – With Chris Godwin expected to miss a couple weeks and Mike Evans limited in practice with a calf injury, the Bucs deep WR rotation has some new question marks. In Week 1, Julio looked slim and rejuvenated, finishing with 69 yards receiving in his Tampa debut, and was even clocked at almost 20 mph on a 12-yard run. Julio should see an increased target share from his new QB in Week 2 and is bound to produce when called upon. UPDATE (9/15) – Julio is dealing with a knee injury and missed practice Thursday. Russell Gage becomes a solid play if Julio is ruled out. UPDATE (9/18) – Julio ruled OUT – Fire up Russell Gage as an upside FLEX play.
More Starts: Christian Kirk (vs Ind), Tyler Boyd (@DAL), Josh Palmer (@ KC)
Week 2 TE Starts
START OF THE WEEK: Gerald Everett (@KC) – With Keenan Allen already ruled out for TNF, all Chargers pass-catchers get a boost. Everett showcased his YAC abilities with nifty footwork along the sideline on an 18-yard score in Week 1. With TE Donald Parham missing another game, Everett should by highly involved on the short turnaround against the Chiefs.
Dallas Goedert (vs MIN) – Goedert had an impressive 27-yard catch and run in the 2nd Quarter against the Lions last week, and finished with a solid, but unspectacular 3-60 line. But Goedert was the clear-cut 2nd option in the passing game for an Eagles offense that funneled 65% of its passing offense through AJ Brown in Week 1. It’s unlikely the Eagles rush for 4 more TDs against the Vikings on Sunday, and Goedert has a great chance to cash in on a redzone opportunity or two.

Week 2 WR Sits
SIT OF THE WEEK: CeeDee Lamb (vs CIN) – Dak Prescott was ineffective all night against the Buccaneers on Sunday night, before exiting with a broken thumb. But even with Prescott playing, Lamb had trouble getting anything going and finished with just 2 catches for 29 yards on his 11 targets. Cooper Rush did nothing in mop up duty to instill any confidence that he could elevate a Dallas WR to fantasy relevance, so I’m in full wait-and-see mode on CeeDee. (Dalton Schultz remains a must-start, though)
Rashod Bateman (vs MIA) – Bateman flashed on his 55-yard TD against the Jets last week, but finished with just 2 catches for 59 yards. This highlights the volatility of Ravens pass-catchers, as Bateman saw just 66% of offensive snaps, which was only marginally more than Devin Duvernay or Demarcus Robinson. Small sample size with one game but the concern about his weekly floor seems valid.
Robert Woods (@BUF) – I’m not optimistic on Woods here despite the revenge game narrative in place as the Rams visit the Bills this weekend. Woods excels as a blocker and is top-rated among WRs by most metrics in this category, but that doesn’t translate into fantasy points. He was targeted just twice in the season opener and is hard to trust right now in this run-heavy Titans attack.
More Sits: Isaiah McKenzie (vs TEN), DeVonta Smith (vs MIN), Kadarius Toney (vs CAR)
Week 2 TE Sits
SIT OF THE WEEK: Dawson Knox (vs TEN) – The TE position isn’t all that deep, so you Knox may be your best option and shouldn’t be benched unless you have another reliable option. But I would consider it this week, especially after Knox finished with just 5 yards in Week 1, despite playing 86% of snaps. The Buffalo passing offense otherwise flowed entirely through their RBs and WRs, making Knox a risky play in Week 2.
Albert Okwuegbunam (vs HOU) – Albert O is touted as the highest-upside TE option for the new-look Broncos with Russell Wilson, but Denver seemed focused on spreading the ball around as 10 different players registered targets on Monday. At the TE position alone, 4 different players were in the mix, but Okwuegbunam still played managed to play 67% of snaps. I like his long-term outlook but I’m reluctant to roll with him this week.
