5 Wide Receivers You Need in Your Week 3 Lineup!
Robert Woods, WR, Los Angeles Rams, $5500
Matt Stafford may have breakfast every day with Cooper Kupp, but Robert Woods is going to eat the Bucs’ lunch on Sunday. Through the first two weeks, Tampa Bay has been among the worst in the league at stopping the pass. While Cooper Kupp has emerged as the leading wide receiver for the Rams, this emergence may lead to additional attention from opposing defences leaving more space for Woods to have a great game. Don’t forget about Bobby Trees, and if you are looking for a high floor option in your Week 3, Woods is a great play.
Courtland Sutton, WR, Denver Broncos, $5500
With Jerry Jeudy out multiple weeks with injury, Courtland Sutton took advantage in Week 2 with a career day, bringing in 9 catches for 159 yards against the Jaguars. The Broncos return home in Week 3 to take on the lowly New York Jets. While the Jets defense has played somewhat well thus far against the Panthers and Patriots, the team’s top 2 cornerbacks are Bryce Hall and Brandin Echols, not competent enough to stop a wide receiver like Sutton. Denver will lean on the defense and the run game, but with lots of play action go-routes built in for Sutton. Get Courtland Sutton into your lineups this week.
Chase Claypool, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers, $5300
Mapletron is off to a slow start in his sophomore season, and this is reflected in his $5,300 salary. Steelers’ wide receiver Diontae Johnson is banged up with a knee injury, and receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster has a low ceiling with a low aDOT of target. Chase Claypool is a threat to go for a touchdown on any play, and a home game against the rival Bengals and their subpar defense should be a recipe for success for Claypool in Week 3. While wouldn’t necessarily recommend a Big Ben/Claypool stack. Claypool is a great upside wide receiver to place in the flex place in lineups that went less expensive at QB and have some salary to spend on flex wide receivers.
Marvin Jones, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars, $4,900
Marvin Jones has been the clear Jaguar’s number 1 wide receiver through two weeks with 20 targets and two touchdowns. The Jags play the Cardinals in Week 3 in a game that looks like it will be a shootout. Look for Trevor Lawrence to look Marvin Jones’ way a ton as the Jaguars work to keep pace with Kyler Murray and the Cardinals. At $4,900 a game, Jones is undervalued once again on OwnersBox and is must-select for you Week 3 lineup.
Darnell Mooney, Chicago Bears, $4,300
When people think Chicago Bears wide receiver, they think Allen Robinson; but don’t forget about sophomore wide receiver Darnell Mooney. Mooney has looked the part of the Bears lead receiver through two weeks, showcasing his playmaking talents. The Bears rookie QB Justin Fields is making his first career start in Week 3 against the Cleveland Browns. Look for Mooney’s production to take a step forward now that he finally has an above average talent at QB, and at $4,300 Mooney is a fantastic value at wide receiver this week on OwnersBox. Stack Fields with Mooney as this could be the pair’s breakout game.
