Week 2 PPR Rankings

Chris Godwin Note

Hello, Chris Godwin! Brady locked onto Godwin in week one against the Dallas Cowboys and targeted him a whopping 14 times! He finished with an incredible 9-105-1 stat line, but he was a fingertips grasp away from having an even more monstrous performance on what would have been a very impressive over-the-shoulder catch. There was plenty of conversation this off-season about which Bucs WR you would prefer to have in drafts this year and we now have our answer. Godwin's going to be an incredibly safe option each and every week moving forward and he has top-5 upside here in this matchup against Atlanta. If he continues to see a hefty 30.4% team target share, he's a top-12 lock every single week.

Mike Evans Note

One of the reasons why I was a lot lower than consensus on Mike Evans coming into the season was because of his volatility week in and week out. He obviously presents week-winning upside with his talent and skillset, but we knew the targets were going to go Godwin first and then potentially AB as well. That's irrelevant at this point though because he's on your roster and you now have to figure out what to expect from him week in and week out. This matchup screams that Evans should be a superb start, but we simply don't know what his target share is going to be in this one. He received a 13% team target share last week and saw players like Anthony Schwartz, Chester Rogers, KJ Osborn, Braxton Berrios, MVS, and Zach Pascal be more involved in their respective offenses than he was. Now, Evans is clearly the superior talent over all of those options, so he comes with 10x the amount of upside as those players do, but it's not exactly an encouraging sign moving forward. Evans can be viewed as a low-end WR2 this week that absolutely has the potential to finish as a top-5 option or he could fall outside the top-80 WRs again like he did against Dallas.

Antonio Brown Note

Antonio Brown looked incredible against Dallas. It's been a long time since we've seen Brown look like what he did in Pittsburgh several years ago, but he's absolutely back. If that is the case, fantasy managers got an absolute steal with AB based on where he was going in drafts. Up against Atlanta, Brown should draw coverage from A.J. Terrell, who is allowing .16 Fantasy Points Per Route so far this season. Terrell's a talented and promising young corner, but he's not going to stand a chance against Brown this week. AB can be viewed as a high-end WR2 this week.
