WR1: A.J. Brown, Philadelphia Eagles ($7,300)
A.J. Brown has been exactly what the Eagles hoped he’d be when they traded for him and paid him big money back in April, and he’s a big reason why they currently sit at 5-0. He’s the overall WR11 in PPR leagues in fantasy football, and his rapport with Jalen Hurts looks solid.
This week’s tough divisional matchup against the Dallas Cowboys may prove to be Philly’s toughest test yet. Expect Brown to be busy against Dallas’s stingy pass defense, as he’s been nearly matchup proof thus far.
WR2: Gabe Davis, Buffalo Bills ($6,500)
Gabe Davis had quite an interesting stat line last week against the Steelers: three catches, 171 yards, and a pair of touchdowns. He did something similar last year in the playoffs against Kansas City when he erupted for over 200 yards and four touchdowns.
While Davis likely won’t repeat that dominance, he’s in for another busy day as the Bills take on the Chiefs in what will be the game of the year so far in the NFL. I’d take any share of this game I can get for fantasy purposes, and Davis is a solid option.
WR3: Jakobi Meyers, New England Patriots ($5,300)
In the three games he’s played, Jakobi Meyers has looked like a modern-day Julian Edelman, averaging nine targets, almost seven catches, and 87 yards. Regardless of the quarterback, Meyers has been the clear-cut number one option in New England.
The high-volume play will likely continue this week as the Patriots play the Cleveland Browns, who have a shaky defense so far this year. Meyers is a solid option to round out this trio of receivers.
