So far this year we've seen a lot of talented rookie Wide Receivers performing early. Corey Coleman, Sterling Shepard, and Will Fuller have all looked impressive after 2 weeks. This fantasy season should be a fun one for WRs. Here are your week 3 WR targets.
If Josh McCown wasn't going to miss time then Corey Coleman would be a solid starter for your fantasy team. He could possibly be the best rookie Wide Receiver this year given that he is on a terrible team that should be throwing a lot. Based on volume alone, Coleman is a FLEX play for week 3. If McCown returns then Coleman will remain a solid FLEX play even after the return of Josh Gordon.
The Jets don't use a Tight End in their offense but they have essentially replaced that role with Quincy Enunwa. The last 2 weeks he has had double digit fantasy points while being extremely efficient and securing 13 of his 14 targets so far this year. There are also rumors circulating about a Brandon Marshall injury that could sideline him in week 3. There aren't many WR handcuffs in the NFL but Enunwa will be an exception. Enunwa is a decent FLEX play for now and will become a WR2 if Marshall or Decker ever miss time.
This is another receiver that has standalone value but gets a boost if a fellow teammate goes down. Donte Moncrief went down to an injury against the Broncos in week 2 and if Moncrief misses time then Dorsett becomes a solid FLEX with huge upside! Even if Moncrief and Hilton are healthy, Dorsett will be useable as a FLEX in the right matchup because the Colts defense is horrendous and that will force Andrew Luck to throw a lot. Dorsett should be owned in all leagues.
It looks like there is life in LA! Kenny Britt had 6 catches for 94 yards against the Seahawks in week 2 which means the Rams have decided to actually throw the ball. It isn't much of a surprise that the Rams would make changes offensively in order to open up the run for Todd Gurley. If defenses continue to stack the box against the stud running back then Britt should get a lot of looks and is worth an add.
I am not entirely excited about this receiver. He is a similar mold to Martavis Bryant which is why everyone has been hyping him up and he is in one of the better offenses in the NFL so there should be points to go around. In week 2, Coates had 2 catches on 5 targets for 97 yards. Right now Coates isn't getting enough targets to make fantasy owners feel confident enough to start him. He's a high risk, high reward fantasy start for now.
This rookie is one of the best Wide Receivers in this draft class and you can grab him for cheap. Doctson is an incredibly fast player standing at 6′ 3″ with an incredible catch radius. The Redskins drafted Doctson in the first round to give Kirk Cousins another great weapon to throw to in the redzone. Unfortunately Doctson was injured early on and couldn't participate in preseason leaving him undrafted in most leagues. Washington is currently working Doctson into the offense slowly and in week 2 he had 3 redzone targets with 2 of them in the end zone during crucial moments of the game! Grab him now while he is still under the radar.
