The Top WRs To Start in Week 2

Zay Flowers, Baltimore Ravens

Flowers exploded onto the season in his pro debut, comfortably pacing the other Ravens receivers in targets, receptions, and yards.

You can make an argument that Flowers was the best aspect of the entire Baltimore offense in the season opener.

Flowers looked dynamic when he got the ball in his hands and looked like the featured player in this revamped offensive system.

While some may be skeptical of his Week 1 target share, I would caution sitting a playmaker of his capabilities who looked like the clear-cut WR1 in Baltimore in his first professional game. Flowers looks like the real deal.

DJ Moore, Chicago Bears

Speaking of debuts, the first regular-season appearance for Moore in a Bears uniform wasn’t all that exciting.

His underwhelming stat line of two receptions for 25 yards paralleled the overall struggles of the Bears’ passing attack against the Green Bay Packers.

His next matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers should be a bit more fantasy-friendly, considering the Bucs gave up 344 yards through the air to Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings last week.
