Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Gallup's off the redraft radar in this offense and can be dropped to your waiver wire.AP's still receiving a ton of carries in this offense, but he's doing next to nothing with them. Against a stout Colts defense, AP's a sit candidate unless you're in an absolute pinch.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's now totaled just 17 targets over his last four games, which is not enough to be a consistent fantasy producer, especially when you factor in the poor quarterback play. Building on that, he's finished with less than 30 yards in three of his last four games. He'll see Avonte Maddox in coverage most of the time, which is not a horrendous matchup by any standards. Over the last two years, he's allowed 59-of-90 passing for 764 yards and four touchdowns in his coverage, which is good for a QB Rating over 105.0. But again, this comes back to his quarterback play and getting consistent targets. It's tough to see the Cowboys having much success on the ground against the Eagles, so we should see increased pass attempts if their defense can get off the field. Gallup has moved well out of must-play territory and should be considered more of a risk/reward WR4/5.Did you know that 39.5 percent of Swift's rushing yards have come on just two carries? He found the endzone last week, which salvaged his fantasy day, but don't forget what we talked about last week. Swift has totaled just 44.8 percent of the Lions running back touches over the last two weeks. His role has grown, sure, but Matt Patricia fails to realize he's the best back on the field right now. Peterson used to be the king of breaking tackles, but this year, he's broken just seven tackles on 86 total touches, which is among the worst broken tackle rates in the league. Now onto a matchup with the Colts, who've been one of the better run-stopping units ever since Matt Eberflus took over the defense. No running back has topped 72 yards on the ground against them this year, and that's despite five different running backs totaling 14-plus carries, including Kareem Hunt, Dalvin Cook, Joe Mixon, and James Robinson. If you go back to last year, there was just one running back (Derrick Henry) who totaled more than 88 rushing yards. It's no fluke. There's also been just one running back who's caught more than three passes or 30 yards through the air against them. All in all, they've allowed the fourth-fewest points per opportunity to running backs, so volume has been necessary to post fantasy numbers against them. Swift is a low-end RB2/high-end RB3 and not one you should aim to play in DFS lineups. Peterson continues to lose more and more work to Swift and given the tough matchup against a Colts team that's allowed just 3.48 yards per carry, and you have a weak RB3/RB4 option.
