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.With this matchup, it's hard to be excited about any Panthers receiving weapon. Moore could be the best of the group though with his role as the short-to-intermediate receiving option in this offense. Bridgewater is going to be looking to get the ball out quickly and Moore could be a valuable low-end WR2 in Full PPR leagues.
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.It's clear that Moore is still the same highly-targeted receiver in Joe Brady's offense as he was in Scott Turner's last year, as his 22 targets rank fourth among wide receivers. He hasn't found the end zone yet, and while those will come, it may not be in Week 3. The Chargers incredible cornerback duo of Chris Harris Jr. and Casey Hayward awaits, though there's a twist to what we thought. The Chargers have deployed Harris in the slot, which means Michael Davis is starting on the perimeter. The Chargers have still allowed the third-fewest fantasy points per target (1.36) to wide receivers, and they were the fourth-best team in the league against wide receivers last year, too. It helps that they've faced just 15.8 wide receiver targets per game in that stretch. You can't bench Moore with all the targets he's getting, but you need to understand how tough of a matchup this is, knocking him down into low-end WR2 territory. I definitely prefer him over Anderson considering Moore will match up with Davis more than he will Hayward, unless they shadow Moore, which seems dangerous to leave Anderson in Davis' coverage all game.
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.Moore had 8 receptions for 120 yards on 13 targets in Week 2, he is a low-end WR1 against the Chargers 6th ranked fantasy wide receiver defense.
