Here are my Top 50 options at the position this week.
TOP 50 WEEK 2 RANKINGS BELOW
New York Giants superstar Odell Beckham Jr. had a tough matchup in Week 1 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. This week he faces the Dallas Cowboys in an NFC East clash. Beckham had 11 receptions for 111 yards in Week 1. The Cowboys allowed the second-most touchdowns and seventh-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers in 2017. I'm expecting Beckham to continue getting a high number of targets and to get into the end zone against the Cowboys.
Pittsburgh Steelers superstar Antonio Brown is my No. 4 option for Week 2. This week Brown faces the Kansas City Chiefs in a game that I expect to have its fair share of scoring. The Chiefs allowed the most fantasy points, second-most touchdowns and third-most yards to the position last season. Brown is in for another dominant day.
Detroit Lions wide receiver Golden Tate is my No. 19 option at the position this week, making him a low-end WR2. Tate is going up against the San Francisco 49ers, who were tied for allowing the sixth-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers in 2017. I expect Tate to be the Lions' top target in this matchup.
While it is unknown exactly when Carson Wentz is coming back at the time that I am writing this article, Nelson Agholor has been showing off his worth in the Philadelphia Eagles' offense. Agholor had eight catches for 33 yards and a rushing attempt in Week 1. I expect him to find a bit more room in Week 2 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who just surrendered 268 yards and two scores to New Orleans Saints wide receivers. The Buccaneers also allowed the most receiving yards and third-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers in 2017. Agholor is my No. 22 option at the position for Week 2, making him a low end WR2/high end WR3.

Washington Redskins wide receiver Jamison Crowder is my No. 36 option at the position for Week 2. Crowder is a low end WR3 for me in a matchup against the Indianapolis Colts. I expect Alex Smith to have another productive day, with Crowder benefitting largely from that. The Colts allowed the fifth-most yards to opposing wide receivers in 2017.
