Some will wonder if Claypool is the add off the waiver wire after his big catch last week, but he's still trailing Washington in the pecking order. Claypool ran 13 routes while Washington ran 22 of them. This is not a team that runs 4WR sets, so we're going to have to wait for one of them to emerge before relying on either of them as anything more than a big play or bust WR5/6-type option. For now, the better option is Washington, but knowing the Texans have faced just 18.0 receiver targets per game, it's tough to say either of them are good bets.After Ross was trusted as the clear-cut No. 3 receiver on this team in Week 1 running 37 routes to just 9 routes for Higgins, we saw a changing of the guard in Week 2 when Higgins ran 42 routes while Ross ran just 23 of them. This is clearly an open competition, and one that Ross may have lost already. For now, we should give Higgins the benefit of the doubt. Against the Eagles, you really don't want to start either of them, as they have yet to allow a receiver top 81 yards or five receptions. Keep in mind they've played against Terry McLaurin, Robert Woods, and Cooper Kupp. We'll continue to monitor this receiver corps, but neither of these two need to be rostered right now.

Claypool has made a couple of splash plays so far this season, but he's simply not seeing enough volume to be a reliable contributor for fantasy football.Ross has the talent to be a fine option for fantasy football, but right now he's falling down the depth chart here in Cincinnati. Ross just simply isn't seeing the necessary volume to be considered for fantasy football. He can remain on your waiver wire.
