FantasyPros
The Bills receivers combined for 31 targets in Week 1, something that's probably never going to happen again in 2020. It allowed Beasley to see the target numbers he did last year when he quietly topped 100 targets on the season. His seven targets in Week 1 amounted to 4/58/0, so nothing that would win you a fantasy matchup. Beasley is the ideal bye week high-floor option, though even that will be in jeopardy with Diggs on the roster. His matchup might be the best on the field in Week 2, though. He'll match up with Jamal Perry in the slot, a former undrafted rookie who's played in a decent size role for the Dolphins since Brian Flores took over. He's allowed a robust 101.3 QB Rating in his coverage, which is extremely high for a slot cornerback. That's the good news. The bad news is that Beasley totaled just 54 yards in the two games combined against them last year. Wait for bye weeks before you start considering the slot receiver.He only walked out of last week's game with two catches for 17 yards, but the encouraging sign for Ross was that he was an every-down player. He actually led all Bengals skill-position players in snaps. Zac Taylor also seemed to take it easy on Burrow in his first game, giving him a bunch of short throws, allowing him to ease into the NFL in a tough matchup. Knowing how often Burrow was under duress, it's no wonder we didn't see many deep passes. The Browns registered a sack on 6.9 percent of dropbacks last year and 7.1 percent in Week 1, so it's not likely he'll have a lot of time to look downfield in this game. The difference in this matchup is the cornerback play, though, as the Browns don't have near the cornerback or safety talent that the Chargers do. The downside is that their best cornerback, Denzel Ward, typically sticks at LCB, which is where Ross runs most of his routes. They moved him around, so it's not exclusive, and it's possible they decide to have Ward shadow A.J. Green. Ross is someone who should be owned in fantasy leagues, but he's still a boom-or-bust WR5 until we see Burrow and him connect. He's a one-play upside tournament play in DFS, though.
