Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
James Washington flashed some big-play potential with Ben Roethlisberger last week, but that's all he is now -- a deep threat. Washington doesn't have much floor, and it's clear that both Diontae Johnson and JuJu Smith-Schuster are ahead of him on the depth chart. In what's likely to be a low-scoring game against the Broncos, I would leave Washington on bench (or on waivers) for Week 2. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
As expected, these two split the snaps as the third wide receiver on the field in Week 1. It was Washington who edged in snaps (37 to 19) targets (3 to 2) and production, but there's not a big gap and you can't clearly say to start one over the other, as Claypool should continue to grow as a young receiver. When starting either of them, you're just looking for that big play because it's very unlikely either of them see more than five targets in any given week. We'll continue to monitor the snaps between these two moving forward, but don't start either of them in season-long leagues until one separates from the other.We didn't know how the snaps would work out between these two, and as it turns out, they split them. Reynolds got the start, but Jefferson edged him in targets (3 to 1). This is a duo we'll continue to monitor, as they'll have fantasy relevance in good matchups, though it's hard to say this is one of them. The cornerback trio of Darius Slay, Nickell Robey-Coleman, and Avonte Maddox is a solid one, though it's possible that Slay shadows Woods and Robey-Coleman tracks Kupp, which would leave them matched up against Maddox. He would be the weakest link of the bunch, but will the Rams have a chance to get the ball downfield against the Eagles? I'd say Jefferson is the hail mary play, though neither are recommended starts until one separates themselves.
