These wide receivers will look to take advantage of good matchups in week 1.

1

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas

Saints receiver Michael Thomas exploded in 2018, catching 125 passes for 1405 yards and nine touchdowns. In week 1, he’ll get to play at home in a matchup against the Texans in what should be a shootout. Expect Brees to target the talented wide receiver early and often.

2

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins

Hopkins had exactly zero drops last season. He caught every pass thrown his way. He finished the year with 115 catches for 1572 yards and 11 touchdowns. Hopkins finished the 2018 season with the 2nd most fantasy points and should have a strong start to the year against a Saints team that has no real answer for the talented receiver.

3

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams

Last season, Adams was a model of consistency, finishing below a double-digit fantasy point total just once in 15 starts. Adams has clearly become Aaron Rodgers’ favorite target and is a strong play in week 1, even against a tough Bears defense on the road.
