Top 3 Fantasy Football Starts at Wide Receiver Position


1. Calvin Johnson at Tennessee

Another week, another No. 1 ranking for Megatron. No, he hasn’t gotten off to a blistering start like he did last season, but it’s not like he’s been disastrous or has lost a step.

The Titans have been shredded by Tom Brady and Philip Rivers, guys that together have averaged a 118.5 QB rating against Tennessee.

Matthew Stafford has been a bit shaky, but he gets on track this week, and Johnson pieces together a typical enormous afternoon.

2. A.J. Green at Washington

The Redskins defense may be more stingy than we initially believed, but there’s no way they’re the same unit without Adam Carriker and Brian Orakpo.

That means Andy Dalton should have plenty of time to throw the football, especially when he looks for A.J. Green down the field.

Green reeled in seven passes for 58 yards and a touchdown last week. Expect those numbers to be better in Week 3.

3. Julio Jones at San Diego

Four catches for 14 yards.

A Julio Jones stat line?

What the?

The Denver Broncos did everything in their power to take away Jones, and it worked. The only problem was that Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez picked up the slack in victory.

The Falcons will make adjustments to get their most athletically gifted wideout the ball in what could be s shootout in Cali.
