Week 2 – WR Rankings
This could be the start of a career year for Calvin Johnson as he started off with a bang against the Buccaneers with two touchdowns on the road. As long as Matthew Stafford is on the field for a full season, it wouldn’t shock me if Johnson made a run for twenty touchdowns this year. Look for Megatron to have another stealer performance against the a Chiefs defense that will be without star safety Eric Berry done for the year.
Dez Bryant @ 49ers
Before Dez Bryant started having cramping problems in the second half, he was having a breakout game on Sunday night against the Jets. Bryant is a physical beast, and it looks like he’s ready to be a top ten fantasy receiver this year. While I wasn’t in love with fantasy owners taking him as high as the third round this summer, it looks like they will get a solid return on their high investment, and Bryant should have another good day against the 49ers weak secondary.
Dwayne Bowe Vs. Lions
Thankfully, Dwayne Bowe gets to face the Lions secondary this week, but he will probably have to earn his points in garbage time. The Lions will jump out to a big lead early to let their defense play in attack mode throughout the second half. If Matt Cassel makes it out alive, it will be a plus for the Chiefs, and this is going to be a bumpy ride the early going for Bowe owners.
Reggie Wayne Vs. Browns
It wasn’t a pleasant site to watch the Colts against the Texans week one but Reggie Wayne had a good end to the game as he finished with 107 yards and a touchdown. This is going to be a long year for the Colts but Wayne is still worth starting regularly.
Kenny Britt Vs. Ravens
I’ve never questioned Kenny Britt’s talent but more his off the field problems and hamstring issues, as the main reason why, he’s not a top twenty receiver. Week on Britt proved his hamstring is good as he went for over 100 yards and two touchdowns. While the Ravens are coming to two, you should still look to Britt as a weekly starter as long as he’s healthy.
Plaxico Burress Vs. Jaguars
While it took Mark Sanchez until the second half against the Cowboys to find Burress, it seemed like he was going to him more and more as the game went on. Sanchez is going to like having Burress as a big target, and he should have another solid performance against the Jaguars sorry secondary.
Please Note – As of Friday I’ve tailed back Nicks, Holmes, Steve Johnson, Dez Bryant and Lloyd as they are starting to look like game time decisions. Nicks is a Monday night game so remember that if you go with him, as he should be considered unlikely to play.
