The Top WRs To Start in Week 3

Ja’Marr Chase, WR, Cincinnati Bengals

The fantasy numbers are worse than the on-field play has suggested. Chase has yet to finish as a top-45 WR this season, but he nearly had a score last week on an end zone target.

MORE: Fantasy News Tracker

We’ve had a two-year sample of Chase paying off targets in a significant way (1.21 fantasy points per target), so I’m willing to forgive an ugly two-game stretch (0.71). If you had the confidence to select Chase in the top five of your draft this summer, you’re smarter than worrying about consecutive duds.

Keenan Allen, WR, Los Angeles Chargers

Age is nothing but a number. You know what? 37.7 is also a number, and that is how many fantasy points the 31-year-old Allen has through two weeks, hauling in 14 of 19 targets in the process.

The veteran receiver has a reception of 35+ yards in consecutive games for the first time since December of 2019 and seems to be loving life in this Kellen Moore offense. We knew he’d have a stable value, but the upside has him pushing the top 10 at the position until otherwise noted.

You could certainly argue that Herbert’s best football is ahead of him this season, and if that’s the case, Allen could well be a league-winner given his ADP this summer. You’re locking him in weekly and loving the foundation he provides.
