Ridley has looked very sharp through two games, he is emerging as a weekly WR2 with WR1 upside. 
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
 Brown's big play ability is a perfect match for Josh Allen's downfield aggressiveness, and it's allowed Brown to average nearly 100 receiving yards through the Bills' first two games. He's a high-end WR3/flex option for a fairly appealing matchup with the Bengals.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 Through two games, Brown is saying, "what accuracy issues?" He's now caught 14-of-18 targets from Josh Allen at 13.9 yards a pop. He's reminding everyone of how he was once a top-24 wide receiver in fantasy football on minimal targets, though his 18 targets through two weeks ranks top-20 at the wide receiver position. The Bengals cornerback duo of William Jackson and Dre Kirkpatrick might be the "highlight" of this defense, though that's not saying much right now. Kirkpatrick may be on the decline of his career at this point, as he's allowed 8-of-11 passing for 129 yards and two touchdowns through two weeks, while Jackson is more of a physical cornerback who Brown can beat with finesse. The Bengals play a lot of man coverage, which should help Brown, as Allen seemingly trusts him in one-on-one situations. Brown should remain in lineups as a WR3 until you have a reason not to. The Bengals are not that reason.
