1

Antonio Brown - Steelers

There's no question who the best receiver in the NFL is right now. Brown ranks as the top receiver in fantasy leagues and has a potential scoring-fest matchup on the way against the Falcons. He, and the No. 2 receiver on this list, could each put up some big numbers in this matchup.

2

Julio Jones - Falcons

Just like the man above him, Jones is part of an intriguing Falcons vs Steelers matchup. This one has the potential for some points on the scoreboard, and that could mean a few yards and touchdowns for Jones' stat totals.

3

Odell Beckham Jr. - Giants

Beckham has 31 receptions and 331 yards so far this NFL season. However, he's yet to get any touchdowns. Fantasy owners are hoping his fortunes change against the Carolina Panthers. He's projected by Fantasy Pros to record 11.3 points this week. Honorable mention for this slot goes to DeAndre Hopkins of the Houston Texans.
