Here are my top 40 wide receivers for Week 2 (points-per-reception leagues).

This countdown simply identifies the weekend's best bets for catches, total yards, touchdowns and receiving targets—a stat that must always factor into lineup strategies with receivers, tight ends and running backs.

(Note: These estimates shall remain fluid through Sunday morning.)

When it comes to crafting a weekly listing of elite wide receivers, simply follow the trail of quarterbacks primed for Week 2 glory...or the wideouts with a good track record of success against middling pass defenses.
