Week 3 WR Starts
START OF THE WEEK: Amon-Ra St. Brown (@MIN) – St. Brown has gotten everyone’s attention with his red-hot start in Year 2, and the USC product has already tallied 17 catches for 180 yards. The cerebral slot-man has already found the endzone 3 times, and could have celebrated each score in a different language (fluent in French, German and English). St. Brown faces a
Vikings defense that has allowed 550 passing yards, 3rd-most in the NFL. Fire him up again in Minnesota.
Allen Robinson (@ARI) – After an anticlimactic debut where he finished with a lone 12-yard catch, Robinson found paydirt in Week 2. Robinson is in a prime spot Sunday against a Cardinals secondary that trails only the Ravens, for most passing yards allowed. Robinson has been on the field for 93% of offensive snaps and will remain heavily involved, as his growing comfort level with Matthew Stafford is bound to translate into bountiful fantasy days very soon.
Jakobi Meyers (vs BAL) – The Ravens have allowed an NFL-worst 379 passing yards per game, which is especially surprising to have surrendered against Joe Flacco and Tua Tagovailoa. The gameflow certainly supports a big day from Mac Jones and Meyers, who have already connected 13 times on 19 targets. Meyers has been slapped with a questionable tag from a sore knee, but it seems precautionary, and he should be all-systems-go in the Patriots’ home opener.

Week 3 WR Sits
SIT OF THE WEEK: Terry McLaurin (vs PHI) – You’re probably starting Scary Terry if you have him, but the 2-0 Eagles just limited the Lions and Vikings to a combined 407 passing yards, and a 3-headed receiving monster is emerging in DC. Rookie Jahan Dotson holds the TD lead (3) in the WR room, while Curtis Samuel leads in receptions (15) and targets (20). Facing a likely matchup with Darius Slay along with a sudden competition for targets, McLaurin isn’t in must-start territory this week.
Rashod Bateman (@NE) – Bateman has been an early standout in the 2022 season, with 167 yards and 2 TDs under his belt already. Like McLaurin, this is a guy you drafted to start weekly, but the matchup suggests some tough sledding. The Patriots have long featured a bend-but-dont-break defensive style that seeks to eliminate the big play, and keep everything in front of them. Something has to give here, as Bateman has generated 130 receiving yards from 2 big plays alone (on 75-yard and 55-yard catch and runs). Proceed with caution here.
Darnell Mooney (vs HOU) – The Bears have thrown the football 28 times for a total of 153 passing yards this season, which are by far the lowest marks in the NFL. The Giants are 2nd-worst in these categories, yet have more than twice the passing yards of the Bears. Not a great start for the Matt Eberflus era in Chicago, and despite Mooney’s talent, all Bears pass-catchers should be avoided for now.
