 Jeffery had a big performance in Week 2 against Kansas City, with seven catches for 92 yards and a touchdown, but he'll have a tougher matchup to contend with here against the Giants. New York has not allowed more than eight fantasy points in standard leagues to any receiver so far this season, and the defense has allowed just three receivers to surpass 100 yards last year. Janoris Jenkins may need another week to recover from his ankle injury, which would boost Jeffery's value a bit. But he'll still be a low-end WR2, at best, in the unfavorable matchup.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Bills are 5th against receivers with an easy early schedule, Thomas is playing on a hot offense and is a WR2 with upside. The Giants are 10th against fantasy wide receivers, but Jeffery should still be in the low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 discussion.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Siemian isn't going to be as precise as Peyton Manning when distributing touchdowns between his top-two receivers, but I expect Thomas to see a few extra targets near the goal line after Emmanuel Sanders reeled in two touchdowns last week.Jeffery would get a big bump if Janoris Jenkins is out again, but it does look like he'll be able to play. I expect Ertz to be the go-to guy this week, but Jeffery is always a good bet for a touchdown.
