Welcome to the Week 2 Wide Receiver Rankings. I’ll be back in a little bit with the tight ends at about 8pm.

There are no byes this week so the drama is on the mild side. As I have been saying for months, the depth at flex level receiver goes on forever, but the truly dependable options are fewer and farther between, and, in some cases are still being defined.

You should have no trouble finding a playable option on most waiver wires this week with all 32 teams playing. I’ll keep grinding until Saturday night, so you can make the best streaming pickups possible if you are in need.

These rankings are based on .5 PPR scoring.

Rank PLAYER TEAM Cost Matchup PPG THE SKINNY
1 Antonio Brown PIT 9400 MIN@PIT 01:00PM ET 32.2 Home game. Get excited.
2 Julio Jones ATL 9200 GB@ATL 08:30PM ET 10.6 Should be a huge part of this game.
3 Amari Cooper OAK 8100 NYJ@OAK 04:05PM ET 17.2 Sweet matchup.
4 Brandin Cooks NE 8200 NE@NO 01:00PM ET 11.8 Loves the turf in Big Easy. Looked solid last week.
5 Odell Beckham Jr. NYG 8000 DET@NYG 08:30PM ET 0 If he plays, the matchup is sweet.
6 Keenan Allen LAC 5800 MIA@LAC 04:05PM ET 14.5 Love him this week. Miami’s secondary looked disorganized in preseason and they still have to shake the rust off. Rivers could light them up unless they’ve really tightened things up.
7 Jordy Nelson GB 7900 GB@ATL 08:30PM ET 20.9 Should see plenty of Trufant, so some concern.
8 Mike Evans TB 7700 CHI@TB 01:00PM ET 0 The Bears defend clear number ones pretty well with the scheme. Some concern for Evans.
9 Alshon Jeffery PHI 5700 PHI@KC 01:00PM ET 8.8 Liking him here. Yet another value at receiver.
10 Doug Baldwin SEA 6700 SF@SEA 04:25PM ET 10 Should do very well at home in a sweet matchup.
11 Michael Thomas NO 7500 NE@NO 01:00PM ET 9.5 Should get it going this week.
12 Tyreek Hill KC 6200 PHI@KC 01:00PM ET 29.8 He’s very reasonably priced considering what he could do against this defense.
13 Michael Crabtree OAK 7100 NYJ@OAK 04:05PM ET 14.3 Looked great last week. Will slaughter the Jets to the extent he targeted. A very safe floor.
14 Demaryius Thomas DEN 5900 DAL@DEN 04:25PM ET 11.7 Should post solid numbers here.
15 Terrelle Pryor Sr. WAS 6000 WAS@LAR 04:25PM ET 12.6 Like him in GPPs this week. Big upside for a very reasonable price.
16 Larry Fitzgerald ARI 6500 ARI@IND 01:00PM ET 13.4 Some concern with the QB, but Fitz should own the Indy corners with no Vontae on the field.
17 Stefon Diggs MIN 6100 MIN@PIT 01:00PM ET 27.7 Looked awesome last week, but his QB is suddenly ailing, so don’t load too many shares in daily leagues. No way I am benching him in seasonal.
18 Davante Adams GB 5600 GB@ATL 08:30PM ET 7.7 Should be good for WR2 numbers in what looks like a barnburner.
19 Adam Thielen MIN 5000 MIN@PIT 01:00PM ET 27.7 QB could be a concern but he crushed it last week and as I said in August, he is not a fluke. Dude can ball.
20 DeVante Parker MIA 5400 MIA@LAC 04:05PM ET 0 Has a tough matchup but not as tough as it was when we thought Verrett was starting at CB.
21 Randall Cobb GB 5900 GB@ATL 08:30PM ET 17.5 Should see the ball plenty.
22 Emmanuel Sanders DEN 5200 DAL@DEN 04:25PM ET 5.6 Can handle the Dallas corners.
23 Dez Bryant DAL 6600 DAL@DEN 04:25PM ET 6.3 Very tough matchup.
24 Sammy Watkins LAR 5200 WAS@LAR 04:25PM ET 10.8 Will see a lot of Norman, but here’s a little secret. Sammy’s better than Josh Norman. I’ll still use him as a WR3 with plenty of ceiling.
25 Martavis Bryant PIT 5500 MIN@PIT 01:00PM ET 3.4 Could do some good thing here as he gets a better CB matchup than AB does.
26 DeSean Jackson TB 4900 CHI@TB 01:00PM ET 0 Could make some big plays in this game. In fact, I think he does. A great GPP play on DK, just don’t overbuy because the long ball can be a fickle thing. Loving that 4900 unit tag.
27 Golden Tate DET 6800 DET@NYG 08:30PM ET 24.4 Tough matchup.
28 Chris Hogan NE 5600 NE@NO 01:00PM ET 3.5 Big ceiling, but there are a lot of ways for the Pats to score in this one. I’ll have some Brady stacks with Hogan on DK. Price is nice.
29 T.Y. Hilton IND 5300 ARI@IND 01:00PM ET 7.7 Can always hit the homer, so worth a look as your WR2 or WR3.
30 Kelvin Benjamin CAR 5600 BUF@CAR 01:00PM ET 3.5 A good bet to bounce back strong.
31 Tyrell Williams LAC 4700 MIA@LAC 04:05PM ET 10.4 He’s a legit value on DK and he’s a compelling GPP play this week as you get big upside at low cost.
32 Jamison Crowder WAS 4900 WAS@LAR 04:25PM ET 3.4
33 Jeremy Maclin BAL 5000 CLE@BAL 01:00PM ET 13.6
34 Brandon Marshall NYG 5000 DET@NYG 08:30PM ET 2
35 Kenny Stills MIA 3900 MIA@LAC 04:05PM ET 0 One of my favorite sleepers this week. I’ll have a few shares in play on DK.
36 Jarvis Landry MIA 5500 MIA@LAC 04:05PM ET 0 Hard to tell how healthy he is. Has been nursing a sore knee. I’m more into the downfield guy in this one.
37 Cooper Kupp LAR 4100 WAS@LAR 04:25PM ET 17.6 He should make some plays. Plenty of flex appeal in PPR.
38 Eric Decker TEN 4400 TEN@JAX 01:00PM ET 4

62 Jermaine Kearse NYJ 3900 NYJ@OAK 04:05PM ET 12.9
63 Travis Benjamin LAC 3500 MIA@LAC 04:05PM ET 13.3 He could easily hit the home run this week but be careful to not overuse him. I’ll have a few shares in case he hits. This matchup could really work for him.
