John Wick: The Assasins

Wide Receivers listed under John Wick are numero uno and your focus needs to be on them. If you’re unaware of these dudes, they’ll kill you in Fantasy. Frankly, if you’re not aware of these guys, you’re already dead.

Neo: Could Be The Man, But Needs A Push

On the surface, it seems like guys in this category could be, “The One” but perhaps they simply don’t know it yet. Let us be your Oracle and guide you.

Johnny Utah: The Undercover Studs

These guys were at one time rising stars in college but now find themselves in new roles, trying to find their true identity.

Shane Falco: The Replacements

TeamJohn WickNeoJohnny UtahShane FalcoNotes
Arizona CardinalsChristian KirkLarry FitzgeraldKeeSean Johnson- KeeSean Johnson
- Damiere Byrd
- Michael Crabtree
The offense sputtered until the 4th quarter in Week 1. Have to think it gets better as the season continues, but a rookie QB, no matter who he is, is likely to have his hiccups which will limit the upside. Still Fitz and Kirk are startable at this point
Atlanta FalconsJulio JonesCalvin RidleyMohamed Sanu- Justin Hardy
- Russell Gage
Jones and Ridley are the only WR you can really rely on in this offense. Jones started the season off slow, but at least got in the endzone.
Baltimore RavensWillie SneadMarquise BrownMiles Boykin - Chris Moore
- Seth Roberts
Brown went ham and the Ravens offense went ham in the first week. I'm still leary of this passing offense due to the volume, but the upside is there, especially for DFS.
Buffalo BillsJohn BrownZay JonesCole Beasley- Robert Foster
- Andre Roberts
John Brown went off in Week 1. We know he is fully capable of this at any time, consistency is his issue. Even more so with Josh Allen under center.
Carolina PanthersDJ MooreCurtis SamuelChris Hogan- Jarius Wright
- Aldrick Robinson
Curtis Samuel disappointed in Week 1 finishing 4th in team on targets with 4. DJ Moore is the only receiver I fully trust to start each week and even he is a WR3.
Chicago BearsAllen RobinsonAnthony MillerTaylor Gabriel- Cordarrelle Patterson
- Riley Ridley
- Tanner Gentry
It wouldn't surprise to see Robinson and Miller flip flop as the primary and secondary option this season. Miller had 7 TDs last season on minimal targets, all while playing with an injured shoulder. He could be special.
Cincinatti BengalsTyler BoydJohn RossDamion Willis- Josh Malone
- Alex Erickson
- AJ Green (INJ)
Green shed his walking boot, but is still weeks away from returning. Boyd is still No.1. It will be interesting to see if Ross can build off his great Week 1.
Cleveland BrownsOdell Beckham Jr.Jarvis LandryRashard Higgins- Taywan Taylor
- Damion Ratley
- Antonio Callaway (S)
Week 1 did not work out so well for the Browns. Expect that to change and roll out OBJ and Landry.
Dallas CowboysAmari CooperMichael GallupRandall Cobb- Tavon Austin
- Noah Brown
The offense looked amazing in Week 1, with everybody getting involved. It was the Giants, but this could be a big year for all.
Denver BroncosCourtland SuttonEmmanuel SandersDaeSean Hamilton- Tim PatrickSutton had the most yards and is the No.1 still, but Sanders looked good and did score. Feel free to roll out both.
Detroit LionsKenny GolladayMarvin JonesDanny Amendola- Travis FulghamSo much for running more. Stafford threw the ball 45 times. If that continues, which we don't expect, then this receiving corps get a big upgrade.
Green Bay PackersDevante AdamsMarquez Valdes-ScantlingGeronimo Allison
- Jake Kumerow
- J'Mon Moore
Allison getting a big zero targets in the opening week is a huge eye-opener. I'm not letting go hope just yet, but the leash is short.
Houston TexansDeAndre HopkinsWill FullerKeke Coutee- Kenny Stills
- DeAndre Carter
Fuller and Watson are one of the best scoring combos in Fantasy but Fuller can't stay on the field. Stills was able to capitalize while Coutee was out, but still only saw four targets, just caught one for a TD.
Indianapolis ColtsT.Y. HiltonDeon CainParris Campbell- Zach Pascal
- Chester Rodgers
With Devin Funchess out until at least Week 10, Deon Cain reaps the benefits. He is a deep league add only imo though.
Jacksonville JaguarsDede WestbrookD.J. CharkMarqise Lee
- Chris Conley
- Keelan Cole
Westbrook is the most talented of the bunch and the safest bet. Chark had a great Week 1, but off just 4 targets. Minshew taking over for Foles is a wait and see for me on all but Westbrook.
Kansas City ChiefsSammy WatkinsMecole HardmanDeMarcus Robinson- Byron Pringle
- Tyreek Hill (INJ)
Tyreek out for a 4-6 weeks, puts Sammy in the drivers seat as the No.1 WR threat. Hardman takes over as No.2. Pringle who got some late preseason hype is looming though.
Los Angeles ChargersKeenan AllenMike WilliamsTravis Benjamin- Geremy Davis Williams is dealing with a knee injury that coaches are concerned about. He stays No. 2 for now.
Los Angeles RamsBrandin CooksRobert WoodsCooper Kupp- Josh ReynoldsCooks is listed as the No.1, but really him, Woods and Kupp are 1a,1b, 1c for fantasy. Feel good about starting any of them.
Miami DolphinsDevante ParkerJakeem GrantPreston Wilson- Allen Hurns
- Albert Wilson (INJ)
Parker is the No.1 but when Wilson is back and healthy he is who I would want to have for fantasy purposes. Although you could easily argue you want none of the Dolphins.
Minnesota VikingsAdam ThielenStefon DiggsChad Beebe- Josh Doctson
- Olabisi Johnson
Thielen and Diggs are the only ones to own in fantasy when healthy.
New England PatriotsJulian EdelmanJosh GordonAntonio Brown- Phillip Dorsett
- Jakobi Meyers
- N'Keal Harry (IR)


With the addition of AB, perhaps temporary, this becomes a very crowded group. If Brown can stay on the field he could put up crazy good numbers leaping Edelman, until he proves he can get in line I have him third.
New Orleans SaintsMichael Thomas Tre'Quan SmithTed Ginn- Keith Kirkwood
- Austin Carr
Thomas is a stud, Ginn can produce in certain game much like Smith, but they are hard to trust in anything but DFS/Best Ball.
New York GiantsSterling ShepardCody LatimerRussell Shepard- Bennie Fowler
- Darius Slaton
- Golden Tate (S)
Shepard is the No.1 but was behind both Engram and Barkley as far as targets in Week 1. Not a good sign. He can be useful, but more so as a flex.
New York JetsRobby AndersonJamison CrowderDemaryius Thomas- Charone Peake
- Josh Bellamy
Crowder caught 14 passes in Week 1. Issue now is Sam Darnold is out multiple weeks with mono, limiting the production from this crew. Crowder will keep more of his value than Anderson though.
Oakland RaidersTyrell WilliamsHunter RenfrowRyan Grant- Marcell Ateman
- J.J. Nelson
AB gone, and Tyrell thrived in his first game as the No.1. Trust at your own risk though.
Philadelphia EaglesAshlon Jefferey DeSean JacksonNelson Agholor- J.J. Arcega-Whiteside
- Mack Hollins
DeSean did DeSean things in Week 1. Jeffrey was steady as always. That's what you get from these guys and it won't change.
Pittsburgh SteelersJuju Smith-SchusterDonte MoncriefJames Washington- Dionte Johnson
- Ryan Switzer
- Eli Rogers
The No. 2 spot behind Juju seems to still be up for grabs. Neither Moncrief nor Washington did much to take it. Leaving it as is for now.
San Francisco 49ersDeebo SamuelMarquise GoodwinDante Pettis- Jordan Matthews
- Trent Taylor
- Jalen Hurd
- Kendrick Bourne
Dante Pettis saw just 2 snaps in Week 1. Perhaps it was due to the groin injury, but it is still worrisome. Deebo saw a whopping 60, most on the team so he vaults to No. 1. Still hard to trust any of these guys.
Seattle SeahawksTyler LockettD.K. MetcalfGary Jennings- Jaron Brown
- David Moore (INJ)
Lockett is dealing with a back injury that has his Week 2 status in doubt. Metcalf would move to No. 1, but meh. Seahawks are going to run a lot more than they pass, just like in Week 1.
Tampa Bay BuccaneersMike EvansChris GodwinBreshad Perriman- Justin Watson
- Bobo Wilson
Winston needs to stop throwing so many interceptions for this group to really be good. Godwin at least saw the endzone in Week 1.
Tennessee TitansCorey Davis A.J. BrownAdam Humphries- Tajae SharpeStill leaving Davis as the No. 1 because he lines up that way and the target share continues to be that. Production-wise though that could change real quick.
Washington RedskinsPaul RichardsonTerry McLaurinTrey Quinn- Kelvin Harmon
McLaurin came out blazing in Week 1 with 7 targets too, tied with Richardson. If Keenum is going to continue to chuck it down, McLaurin is going to be valuable.
