MVS is currently the WR20 in Half PPR scoring, but he's easily a sit for me in this matchup if I can afford it. This is a tough matchup for opposing WRs and MVS needs to connect on a big play downfield or find the end zone in order for you to feel happy that you played him. He's a WR4 in this matchup.On the surface, this looks like a great matchup for the Lions RBs, but there's just no way of knowing which one in this committee is going to return value for your lineup. Peterson has looked amazing on the field through two weeks, but he's simply not getting the goal-line opportunities that would vault him into the RB2 conversation. He's nothing more than a RB4 this week.

He ranks 12th in the NFL in air yards, so we can't simply give up on him after a down game. Similar to Lazard, Valdes-Scantling had back-to-back bad plays in Week 2, including a drop in the end zone. He's playing on the perimeter 80 percent of the time, which means he'll see a lot of Marshon Lattimore or Janoris Jenkins in coverage. Teams have chosen not to target those cornerbacks much, as the Saints have faced just 29 wide receiver targets, which is the fourth-lowest mark in the league. Rodgers appears willing to target Valdes-Scantling in one-on-one coverage down the field, so we could see a few deep shots that may pay off, but you shouldn't bet on it against this secondary. He's a risk/reward WR5 who would get a solid bump if Adams sits.Through two weeks, here are the snap counts between these three: Swift 54, Peterson 39, Johnson 39. Gross. Here are the opportunity counts: Peterson 24, Swift 18, Johnson 16. Again, gross. Even worse is that Swift and Johnson have gotten two carries inside the 10-yard-line while Peterson has just one, which seems like it should be Peterson's role. This is going to be an ugly backfield to predict every week, though Swift should eventually establish himself as the top option. The Cardinals have surprisingly not allowed a running back more than 56 yards on the ground through two weeks. They limited Raheem Mostert to just 56 yards on 15 carries, though he did rattle off 95 yards and a touchdown through the air. Swift is clearly the preferred receiving option, as he's been in on 39 pass snaps, while Peterson and Johnson have combined for 33. Running backs have accounted for 50 percent of fantasy production against the Cardinals, which ranks as the third-highest in the league, so if the Lions are going to come anywhere close to their 24.5-point implied total, someone is likely to have value. Swift would be my choice, but as you can see, there's no guarantee. Treat him as a low-end RB3 and hope he finds his way into the end zone or sees quite a few targets. Peterson is getting the most touches but if he's not locked into goal-line work, he won't offer much upside at all. He's nothing more than a RB4 who's got a limited ceiling. I wouldn't want to start Johnson considering the 8.0 opportunities per game.
