Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Jones went nuclear last week against the Lions run defense and he's currently the RB1 in all of fantasy football because of it. However, this is a much more difficult matchup for the veteran RB and it's important to temper expectations. Jones can be viewed as a low-end RB1 this week against a Saints defense that's currently allowing only 18.2 fantasy points on average to opposing RBs.Hooper had a great opportunity in front of him last week with David Njoku sidelined, but he failed to deliver with a 2-21-0 line. Unfortunately, Hooper can't be trusted for fantasy football right now. He's a high-end TE2 moving forward that you're hoping finds the end zone if you're forced into starting him.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Not only is Jones getting it done on the ground, but he's also tied for the league lead with four red zone targets through two games. If you saw his highlight reel catch last week, you'll know that his targets aren't going away. Against the Saints, the Packers will need to get creative, as this is a team that shuts down running games. They've allowed just 3.41 yards per carry on the year with one touchdown on 54 carries, and it's nothing new, as they ranked as the No. 6 team against running backs last year while allowing 3.65 yards per carry. The 145.9 fantasy points they allowed on the ground ranked as the third-best behind only the Patriots and Bucs. The 181.8 PPR points they allowed through the air to running backs was a lot better, as that was the 10th-most in football. Jones has now seen at least six targets in each of the last three regular seasons he's played. If Davante Adams is out or limited, that number should be safe. This is not going to be an explosion game on the ground, but as I've been saying since this offseason, Jones is very similar to Alvin Kamara in that he's highly efficient, even if he doesn't get 20-plus touches per game like some top-tier backs. Start him as a low-end RB1 in this matchup. Williams has surprisingly seen 19 touches over the first two games, but only four have been targets. In a matchup with the Saints, I don't want to take his touches, as they offer a very low ceiling.We thought Hooper would be much more involved in the gameplan with David Njoku going to IR, but four targets is not something to get excited about. The Browns decided to involve rookie Harrison Bryant and give him two targets, so this is bound to be a timeshare no matter what. Unless we see a game where the Browns are expected to throw the ball 35-plus times, it's going to be tough to trust Hooper as anything more than a touchdown dependent TE2. In this game against Washington, it's tough to see that being the case with the Browns favored by almost a full touchdown. The one positive for Hooper, however, is that of the production Washington has allowed to skill-position players, 28.5 percent of it has gone to tight ends, which ranks as the third-highest mark in the league. He's far from a guarantee with the limited targets, but Hooper may be better than expected this week as a high-end TE2.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Saints are 14th against fantasy running backs, but anyone that thought Jones was going to have a reduced role this year has been wrong after two weeks. Jones is a solid RB1 with upside in a game that could be a shootout.
