Top of the World

The top 3 receivers probably won’t change for the remainder of the season, barring any injuries. Julio Jones, in particular, has stood out with 3 total touchdowns. One came at the end of the game on Sunday night against the Eagles, putting the Falcons on top to win that game. DeAndre Hopkins had a big Week 1 with 2 touchdowns and 111 yards but cooled down last week with just 40 yards. Davante Adams has yet to find the endzone but did surpass 100 yards last week and is Aaron Rodgers’ top option in a passing reliant offense.

New Stars

The number one performer of Week 3 you may have never heard of before now. Introducing the Chiefs #4 receiver to start the season, Demarcus Robinson, who had 172 yards on six receptions added to two touchdowns. Another lesser-known name was Deebo Samuel on the San Francisco 49ers. Samuel rushed for 7 yards and caught five passes for 87 yards with a touchdown. On a 49ers team in need of strong receivers, Samuel has the opportunity to take over as the top target. DJ Chark has also made his presence known in Jacksonville, emerging as a possible #1 for Gardner Minshew.

Notable Receivers for this Week

Kenny Golladay should be ready for a huge week this week as well as Marvin Jones. The Lions are playing the Eagles who have given up a few big passing plays especially the one late in their last game against the Falcons. They have also allowed a 2nd worst in the NFL, 340 passing yards per game. Golladay is coming off a big 117-yard game plus a touchdown. Another one is Chris Godwin. Godwin has looked a lot better than Mike Evans who started as the #1 in Tampa Bay. They find themselves in a very good matchup against the Giants this week who have given up the 3rd most passing yards per game at 321 yards. If Jamies Winston can play at his best, both of these two could go off.

Affected by Injuries

Michael Thomas lost his starting quarterback to thumb surgery. Drew Brees will probably miss the next 6 weeks. Teddy Bridgewater is the highest-paid backup in the NFL, but he has not started a game in a while and might have a bit of rust to shake off before Thomas can live up to his tier 1 status. Another top receiver lost his quarterback. JuJu Smith-Schuster will have to get in sync with Mason Rudolph as Ben Roethlisberger is out for the remainder of the season with an elbow injury. These two are still top receivers but it is likely that their production will go down for a while at least. The Jets are also dealing with quarterback problems as Sam Darnold is dealing with mono and Trevor Siemian just went down with an ankle injury Monday night. They are now relying on Luke Falk to carry this offense. Players like Robby Anderson and Jamison Crowder will take a hit from this.
