Found September 12, 2013 on The Fantasy Fix:
Week 1 is officially in the books and what a week it was. Fantasy owners saw Peyton Manning (DEN) light up the field with a NFL Record 7 TDs (tied) on opening night. The Cowboys defense scored twice including forcing 6 turnovers, LeSean McCoy (PHI) ran for more than 180 yards on Monday night and Colin Kaepernick (SF) and Anquan Boldin (SF) connected 12 times for 208 yards. But the aforementioned names are the easy ones. Understanding the waiver wire, and the gems hidden deep down is the key to fantasy dominance. Each week, we will go digging for gold as I highlight two players from each position that could still be of great use to your fantasy team.

2013 Fantasy PPR Week 2 Wide Receiver Rankings: Top 40

Every time teams take the field in the National Football League, fantasy football owners can learn something and week 1 of the season was no different. One of the biggest takeaways from week one, in my humble opinion, at least where the wide receiver position is concerned, was Anquan Boldin.
