Jacob Wayne
Lineups
Everyone is down on Cooper Kupp after the way he faltered towards the end of last season, but he was the WR1 across the early part of the season and was very consistent for most of the year. He is one of the best red-zone threats in the NFL and is going to be playing in a shootout this week in primetime against the Cowboys. Kupp's targets aren't going anywhere and he should have a strong week against the defense that allowed the 13th-most fantasy points to receivers in the red zone.Baltimore had an elite defense across the board last year, but their biggest weakness was in pass defense as they allowed the sixth-most fantasy points to wideouts last year. Still, Odell Beckham Jr. averaged just 9 PPR fantasy points against them. As the new head coach, Kevin Stefanski should enable OBJ to get more consistently open targets and Beckham's health should be in a better place than last year. He should be treated as a solid WR2 in most weeks, and with the potential for a high-scoring contest here, he has low-end WR1 upside.
Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
 Beckham scored 4 PPR points against the Ravens in Week 4 last year, but he saved some face with 14.4 PPR points in Week 16. That could be because Beckham drew Marlon Humphrey in Week 4 but saw Marcus Peters in Week 16 -- the same corner he had already played against in Week 3 when he was still a Ram. Beckham averaged 13 PPR points against Peters last year, and he should be good for another low-end WR2 finish on Sunday. That's probably not what you want out of him, but he'll have better matchups in the future.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 After playing through a groin injury last year, and in Freddie Kitchens' offense, many are worried about Beckham in fantasy. Guys, he's posted at least 1,035 yards in 5-of-6 seasons despite playing 16 games just twice. However, this week does present some real concern. It's the Browns' first game under the expected run-heavy approach of Kevin Stefanski, and the Ravens just happen to have one of the best cornerback units in all of football. Despite them facing the third-most targets to wide receivers, they allowed the 14th-fewest points to them. It's not to say they can't be beat - they can. It's just understanding expectations. There were just three receivers who finished top-12 against them last year, and all of them were slot-heavy receivers (Jamison Crowder, Jarvis Landry, and Mohamed Sanu). There were another nine wide receivers who finished in the WR2 range, and though many of them were also slot options, there were some perimeter receivers. This is not a week to get excited about Beckham in such a tough matchup but know that there will be better days. He should still be locked into six-plus targets and considered a low-end WR2.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Kupp's numbers fell off towards the end of the season last year, but he's still one of the best wideouts the NFL has to offer. This game could easily get turned into a shootout and Kupp has a very good chance to score. He's a WR2 with upside this week. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Cowboys were 6th against fantasy wide receivers last year, but it remains to be seen how they adjust to a new head coach and a new scheme. Kupp is a decent WR2 option at home in a game that could have a ton of points scored. Last year these teams combined to score 65 points in Week 15.Beckham had only 6 receptions for 64 yards and 1 touchdown in 2 games against the Ravens last year. The hope is he will be used better in a new scheme with a new coaching staff, but I think he is more of a WR2 in a tough matchup.
