It was great to have football back last week! After an action-filled Week 1, we are starting to see how players are going to perform this season. Although this is the case, some fantasy owners are in shambles after some of their players did not perform well or got injured. If this is you, you may need to look for some Week 2 fantasy football WR streamers.
Do you have Michael Thomas or one of the other injured receivers? Look no further. Here are the three best Week 2 fantasy football WR streamers.
Check out our Week 2 Fantasy Football Rankings, including scoring settings for PPR and half PPR leagues! Ranking are updated throughout the week.
Fantasy Football WR Streamers
Parris Campbell, IND (vs MIN)
Parris Campbell is an interesting play fantasy football WR streamer this week, as the Indianapolis Colts take on the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings defense was horrible last week against Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. It is very likely that Philip Rivers approaches 50 pass attempts against this weak Minnesota secondary this week.
Last week, Campbell caught six balls on nine targets for 71 yards. With those nine targets, Campbell was tied with T.Y. Hilton for the team leader in targets. Campbell, who is only owned in 22% of leagues, was excellent in working the middle part of the field, an area where Rivers excels at throwing the ball. Campbell should be rostered in your league as soon as the waiver wire opens.
Mike Williams, LAC (vs. KC)
The fact that Mike Williams is only rostered in 46% of leagues is wild to me. Williams has all of the potential in the world. Even with an injury designation, Williams still garnered nine targets, resulting in four catches for 69 yards. The Chargers are matched up against Kansas City this week. This is a great matchup for Williams, as much of Kansas City’s attention will be on Keenan Allen and Hunter Henry. With the Chiefs’ average secondary, Williams should be able to succeed against whatever Kansas City throws at him. He has WR2 potential this week. If, for some reason, Williams isn’t rostered in your league, make your bid for him as soon as possible.
Robby Anderson, CAR (at TB)
Robby Anderson looks like he is going to be the big play guy for Teddy Bridgewater and the Carolina Panthers. Anderson may be more than just a streamer, as he is very likely going to be a big part of this Panthers offense. Anderson, who is currently the WR5 in fantasy football, was reunited with college head coach Matt Rhule in Carolina. The Panthers have a tough matchup with the Buccaneers this week, which may result in a lot of offense. Now, we have yet to see if Curtis Samuel will step and show what he can do, but as of now, Anderson looks to be the number two receiver in Carolina with potential to make a push for the number one spot, making him a solid fantasy football WR streamer for Week 2.
