Lineups
Davante Adams excelled against a Vikings secondary full of fresh faces and he'll have a great opportunity to do the same this week. The Lions will be missing Desmond Trufant and Justin Coleman again this week and while Jeff Okudah could play, it would be his first game in the NFL. Aaron Rodgers came out slinging in Week 1 against the Vikings and the Packers should continue their hot streak, making Adams my WR1 again.Adam Thielen was phenomenal in Week 1 as the Vikings had to throw far more than they ever did last season. Their cornerback group is a mess and the defensive line generated the worst pressure rate of Week 1, so the Packers made this a shootout early. The Colts likely won't be as high-octane as the Packers were, but I can imagine a similar game script unfolding this week. The Colts' secondary is very beatable, as Gardner Minshew proved in Week 1. With Stefon Diggs out of the lineup and first-round rookie Justin Jefferson still getting his legs under him, Thielen is a solid bet to be among the target leaders on any given week. He's a strong WR1 until further notice.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
There were some who laughed when I said Adams belonged in the tier with Michael Thomas, but after his 14/156/2 performance in Week 1, we're hearing a different tune. He's now played 28 games over the last two-plus years and has totaled 16-plus PPR points in 24 of them. He's averaged 11.2 targets per game during that time as well. Yeah, he's elite. Now on to play a Lions secondary that might be missing their three starting cornerbacks. No. 3 overall pick Jeff Okudah was out with a hamstring injury last week, while Desmond Trufant suffered one of his own during the game, and then they placed Justin Coleman on injured reserve. That would leave last year's fifth-round pick Amani Oruwariye covering Adams, who has allowed 21 catches for 263 yards and three touchdowns on 26 career targets in coverage. Even with Darius Slay on this team last year, they allowed seven different 100-yard receivers. Start Adams as you normally would. Yes, he's safe enough to play in cash games as well.Despite the Vikings passing the ball just 25 times in Week 1, we saw Thielen get eight of them, which amounted to the No. 3 wide receiver performance. Now, Thielen gets to go against the Colts secondary that just allowed Davante Adams to go absolutely ballistic, finishing with 14 catches for 156 yards and two touchdowns. Thielen ran the majority of his routes from the perimeter, which means he'll see a combination of Xavier Rhodes and Rock Ya-Sin in coverage. Rhodes is a former teammate and while he may be itching to get back at his former team, he's just not very good anymore. Since the start of last season, he's seen 82 targets. Think about that number, okay. He's allowed 69 receptions on those targets for 855 yards and six touchdowns. That amounts to a passer rating near 135.0, which is easily the worst mark in football. Thielen is a can't-miss WR1 in this matchup and one you should be playing in cash lineups.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Adams had a monster Week 1 and goes against a Lions D that allowed the 5th most points to fantasy wide receivers, despite playing the Chicago Bears. Adams is an elite WR1 this week.The Colts really struggled to stop a bad Jaguars team last week, Thielen should be a WR1 on the road this week.
