Ranking the top 50 wide receivers for Week 3 in standard fantasy leagues

After two weeks it looks like Hollywood Brown is ready for his close up and OBJ got things going after a trip to NY.

After two weeks of football we’re starting to get a better understanding of the fantasy landscape. It looks like this Marquise Brown guy may not be a Week 1 wonder. The Odell Beckham show finally got going on Monday night and Julio Jones reminded everyone he is still pretty fast.

DeSean Jackson and Michael Gallup top the injury news. Jackson will miss multiple weeks with an abdominal injury and Gallup is out two to four weeks with a torn meniscus. Alshon Jeffery may also miss his Week 3 game as he deals with a calf injury. It would also be understandable if you wanted to downgrade the receiving options in New Orleans and Pittsburgh thanks to injuries to Drew Brees and Ben Roethlisberger. We’ll have to wait and see just how much this will impact top options like Michael Thomas and JuJu Smith-Shuster.

Looking at week 3 there are a few good spots for breakout games for a few players that have underperformed thus far. Mike Evans gets the New York Giants defense that has allowed the fifth most points to wide receivers through two games. Marvin Jones is also in a nice spot to deliver a good game when he plays the Philadelphia Eagles on the road
