We've now gone over a span of 12 games where Fitzgerald has topped 56 yards just once and has caught two touchdowns over his last 15 games. He's a stable presence over the middle of the field and his team is implied for 30 points, so we should at least consider him. The Lions have Darryl Roberts covering the slot with Justin Coleman on IR, which isn't really much of a downgrade. He's been in the league for five years now and has never allowed a 100 QB Rating in his coverage over the course of a full season. He was targeted just one time by Aaron Rodgers last week and did allow 30 yards on it, but that was it. Against the Bears, he saw five targets and allowed just one catch for 22 yards. I wouldn't consider this a week to rely on Fitzgerald, though he may have a scoring opportunity with that high team total.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.

Fitzgerald has been productive and incredibly efficient through two games, but he's simply not seeing enough volume to be relied on as anything more than a low-end WR4 for fantasy.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.
