The Top WRs To Start in Week 2

Brandon Aiyuk, San Francisco 49ers

Aiyuk is very much trending in the right direction, so I’m going to help you out. What I need you to do is screenshot the analysis below and send it with Brandon Aiyuk to a manager in your league in an effort to cash in.

The 49ers pass catcher was featured early and often in Week 1 against the Steelers. He finished off the first drive of the season with an eight-yard score and followed up with a gem of a 19-yard TD catch that came over Patrick Peterson.

For the rest of the game, he earned two more targets on four fewer routes than Samuel. He scored seven times in 12 games to end last season, and the momentum has clearly carried over into 2023.

There you go. Kyle Soppe — a man of the people. This San Francisco receiving core is going to be a random number generator for Samuel, Aiyuk, and Kittle on a week-to-week basis. Try to use the big games to your advantage and build a powerhouse of a team that carries a reliable weekly floor.

Zay Flowers, Baltimore Ravens

Have yourself a debut, kid! Flowers earned a 47.6% target share and had more catches (nine) than the rest of his teammates combined (eight).

The numbers are one thing, but his agility and comfort are another. I expect Jackson to gain comfort in Todd Monken’s offense with time, which will put Flowers in a spot to return a profit on his draft price this summer. I have Flowers ranked as a top-30 receiver that I am comfortable starting.
