Rejection recommendations are based on NFL.com ownership rates but are applicable to all platforms.
Ronald Jones, Buccaneers (31
Malcolm Brown, Owens (1.5): Brown was Aries' second leading ball carrier for the first week, but he had both team pilots, he carried 11 times for 53 yards and it's clear that the Rams they will not overwork Todd Gurley. Brown may continue to get more goal work and will be a likely starter if Gurley misses anytime this season.
Rahim Moster, 49ers (0.0): It is expected that Tevin Coleman will miss time with his ankle. injury, and Matt Brad is unlikely to bear the full load. Mostert is likely to share with Breida and is worthy of flexible consideration in this type of scenario. He is a fast guy who can fly defenders when he gets to the second level. He rushed for 40 yards on nine carries in the opener against Tampa Bay and could tear off some longer runs with increased playing time.
Adrian Peterson, Redskins (37.6): The unhappy problems continue for Derrius Hewes, who is now expected to miss time with a knee injury. Peterson was not active in Week One, but is now back in the lead role of RB in Washington. Not your average 34-year-old NFL athlete, Peterson rushed for over 1,000 yards last season and should consider flexible use.
DK Metcalf, Seahawks (30.3): He made an early statement by wearing Steve Lorge's T-shirt to the opening home, but then followed by an even bigger field statement, overall 89 yards on four catches against Cincinnati. This included a 42 yard reception. Metcalfe has landed in the perfect spot for his downhill ability with Russell Wilson and more impressive performances are on the way. Add it now as a Fantasy WR4 type.
John Brown, Accounts (5.2): In the past, we've seen Brown show his explosive abilities, and now he's in a situation where he may be able to contribute more often throughout the season. if he stays healthy. Brown began his management of the bills, catching seven passes for 123 yards and a TD against the Jets. Josh Allen's reception crew was upgraded during the off-season, and Brown may have been the most important addition. Alan has no reservations about launching the ball into the pitch, and Brown is his ideal target when he goes deep.
Terry McLarin, Redskins (0.8): After a week when rookie WRs shone bright, McLaurin also featured a star, catching five passes for 125 yards and a score. Case Keenum has shown he can still be a competitive startup, and Washington desperately needs playmakers to get ahead in the passing game. If he has a QB switch at one point, McLaurin plays with Dwayne Haskins in Ohio. McLaurin needs to continue to see many goals going forward, in a position of need for the Reds.
Marquise Brown, Ravens (0.8): Along with Metcalf, Brown was one of the highest rated WRs this year in the draft class. He impressed Fantasy players immediately, catching passes of 47 and 83 yards and finishing with 147 yards on four receptions in a decisive Miami route. Brown was drafted to give Lamar Jackson a clean deep threat, and depending on the match, more big games are ahead. However, there may be some ups and downs with recruits, so expect some less productive outings along the way.
