David Montgomery (RB - CHI)
3d
Player Note on David Montgomery (RB - CHI)
While Montgomery has not seen the gaudy type of production that fantasy managers have been hoping for, he has seen the volume. His uptick in targets since Tarik Cohen went down to injury has also been impressive. This is the week to shovel him into lineups as the Bears face the absent run defense of the Panthers. Start Monty with some confidence this week.
Alexander Mattison (RB - MIN)
3d
Player Note on Alexander Mattison (RB - MIN)
Mattison looked good in relief of Dalvin Cook last week. This week he faces an Atlanta team that allows production the the position. Expect Mattison to get between 15-18 touches in a majority role this week. He is a high-end RB2 for this week.
Justin Jefferson (WR - MIN)

Player Note on Justin Jefferson (WR - MIN)
It's almost as if Justin Jefferson spent the last two weeks preparing himself for this game. Seattle is allowing the most fantasy points to wide receivers and Jefferson has been very productive in the last two games, going for 175 and 103 respectively. He should be thought of as a low-end WR2 this week in the best matchup of his young career.
D.K. Metcalf (WR - SEA)
2w
Player Note on D.K. Metcalf (WR - SEA)
Through the first four weeks, Metcalf has made it his mission to quiet the "one-trick pony" crowd. While currently ranking 20th in targets (28) he is also tied for first in receiving yards (403) and tied for third in touchdowns with three. Now that Seahawks have granted Russ his chef's hat, expect the efficient production to continue. Metcalf is a top-five receiving option this week against the hapless Vikings secondary.
Tee Higgins (WR - CIN)

Player Note on Tee Higgins (WR - CIN)
Higgins and Burrow are starting to build some chemistry. While Tyler Boyd remains the alpha as far as target share and production, Higgins is growing into his own. In the last three weeks, Higgins has seen six, nine, and 7 targets respectively. He should be rostered and represents an upside flex option as bye weeks begin.
Laviska Shenault Jr. (WR - JAC)
2w
Player Note on Laviska Shenault Jr. (WR - JAC)
Shenault has remained one of the most fun rookie receivers to watch this season. Has he had the high yardage totals that Justin Jefferson has put together in the last two games? Has he had a multi-touchdown game? The answer is: not yet. In four straight games, Shenault has had at least one carry and four targets. The only other receiver with that kind of usage is Robert Woods. Last week Shenault finished the week with 86 receiving yards on five receptions. Hopefully, the Jaguars continue to scheme ways to get Viska more involved and that it translates into steady fantasy points. This week he is a fringe WR3/Flex candidate and should no longer be on waiver wires in 12 team leagues.
Joe Burrow (QB - CIN)
3w
Player Note on Joe Burrow (QB - CIN)
Burrow is off to a solid start behind a less than stellar offensive line. This week, he squares off against a Jacksonville defense that is allowing the fifth-most fantasy points to the quarterback position. Currently sitting on five passing scores to only one pick, and averaging 273 passing yards per-game, he is a strong candidate for a back-end QB1 performance this week.
Russell Wilson (QB - SEA)
3w
Player Note on Russell Wilson (QB - SEA)
Russell Wilson has been nothing short of on fire to start the season. Through the first three games, he has nine touchdowns to only one interception and 925 passing yards on 103 attempts. Expect the trend to continue in a cake-matchup this week with Miami.
Mark Ingram II (RB - BAL)
Wed, Sep 16
Player Note on Mark Ingram II (RB - BAL)
Ingram's workload should remain under close surveillance moving forward. In 15 contests last season, Ingram's carry count only dipped below 12 on two occasions. Only seeing 10 carries in a game in which they maintained a commanding lead is concerning. Watching rookie J.K. Dobbins take the goal line duties is also worrisome. Ingram's involvement should be monitored closely going forward.
Josh Jacobs (RB - LV)
Wed, Sep 16
Player Note on Josh Jacobs (RB - LV)
Jacobs balled out in week one, showing some truth in the idea of getting more receiving work. If that trend continues, he remains in the RB1 conversation despite a tough on-the-ground matchup against the Saints this week.
