Antonio Gibson Note

As the Commanders' No. 1 pass-catching back, AG has more appeal in PPR formats. But in a contest that projects for Washington to be playing with a lead, this isn't the spot to thrust him into your starting lineups. It's a Brian Robinson week, not a Gibson week.

JuJu Smith-Schuster Note

Hard to say how long JuJu Smith-Schuster will remain the team's WR1, given his doomsday timetable regarding his knee health. But until it goes #kaboom, he should be viewed as the target leader in this offense in Week 1. That gives him fantasy WR4 appeal against the Eagles, who he last faced in the Super Bowl. Smith-Schuster commanded a team-high nine targets (38% target share) for seven receptions and 53 receiving yards.

K.J. Osborn Note

Will the arrival of Jordan Addison marginalize Osborn? Maybe not, but Addison could drain what little fantasy value Osborn has. Don't use Osborn against the Buccaneers this week.

Hunter Henry Note

If there's any non-Stevenson Patriots player, I'd feel okay about starting in Week 1, it would be Hunter Henry. He is the clear TE1 for the Patriots with Mike Gesicki missing time due to a shoulder injury. Henry is by far Jones' preferred red-zone target, and one receiving TD is enough to vault any tight end into TE1 territory. Henry has been with the Patriots through the entire Mac Jones era, and the two have consistently flashed their chemistry through training camp. Considering Henry has been Jones' favorite RZ target over the past two seasons, he has a TD upside in half-PPR scoring formats. The Patriots tight end should maintain a full-time role after running a route on 70% of dropbacks over the last two seasons (11th).
