While Davante Adams played 70 snaps, Lazard was right behind him playing 68 snaps. He's the clear-cut No. 2 receiver in this offense, even if Valdez-Scantling saw two more targets in the first game. Lazard caught all four of his targets for 63 yards and a touchdown, amounting to the No. 13 wide receiver on the week in half-PPR formats. The Lions are really hurting at cornerback and might be starting Amani Oruwariye, Darryl Roberts, and Tony McRae this week. Lazard would see a mix of all three of them, as he played 57.9 percent of his snaps in the slot. That's good to know because we just saw Anthony Miller tag this Lions defense for 76 yards and a touchdown on just six targets last week. Over Lazard's last three regular season games, he's produced 4/63/1, 4/69/1, and 5/45/0. We may not be there just yet, but he has the looks of a solid WR4 moving forward and one who possesses upside should Aaron Rodgers be on a "don't forget about me" campaign.He only walked out of last week's game with two catches for 17 yards, but the encouraging sign for Ross was that he was an every-down player. He actually led all Bengals skill-position players in snaps. Zac Taylor also seemed to take it easy on Burrow in his first game, giving him a bunch of short throws, allowing him to ease into the NFL in a tough matchup. Knowing how often Burrow was under duress, it's no wonder we didn't see many deep passes. The Browns registered a sack on 6.9 percent of dropbacks last year and 7.1 percent in Week 1, so it's not likely he'll have a lot of time to look downfield in this game. The difference in this matchup is the cornerback play, though, as the Browns don't have near the cornerback or safety talent that the Chargers do. The downside is that their best cornerback, Denzel Ward, typically sticks at LCB, which is where Ross runs most of his routes. They moved him around, so it's not exclusive, and it's possible they decide to have Ward shadow A.J. Green. Ross is someone who should be owned in fantasy leagues, but he's still a boom-or-bust WR5 until we see Burrow and him connect. He's a one-play upside tournament play in DFS, though.
