Week 1 Half PPR Rankings

Ronald Jones II Note

Jones should still be the lead option in this backfield, but the presence of Leonard Fournette limits his overall ceiling. Additionally, the Saints DST is an extremely difficult matchup for RBs. All of those things point towards Jones being a RB3/FLEX option at best this week.

Fournette should see some touches in this matchup, but it might not be enough to be FLEX worthy. There's a possibility that Fournette takes on more of a workload in upcoming weeks, but it's going to be hard to trust him right away in this matchup. He's a RB4 at best this week.

LeSean McCoy Note

McCoy is the passing-down back, which carries some value in this matchup. The Saints allowed the 10th-most fantasy points through the air to running backs last year, as the 95 receptions they allowed ranked as the fifth-most. Still, McCoy is sharing a lot of snaps and is clearly the No. 3 on this team. He may be usable in deep PPR formats that utilize multiple flex spots as a semi-decent floor play, but he doesn't come with any upside.
