Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Kamara was essentially unstoppable last week and there's a very good chance that we see him finish as the RB1 this week. The Packers are currently the 8th easiest matchup for opposing fantasy RBs and Kamara could easily find the end zone multiple times again in this one. Kamara should be viewed as a locked-and-loaded top-5 option this week.There were major questions surrounding Sanders last week and the type of work he was going to see coming off of his extended absence due to injury. However, he came out and saw enough work to finish as the RB12 on the week. Moving forward, Sanders belongs in your lineup every single week and this is a fantastic matchup for him. The Bengals are currently 2nd in the NFL in terms of allowing fantasy points to the RB position and Sanders could easily finish within the top-5 this week.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
I don't know what the Saints were thinking last week. Murray had three carries through the first 10 minutes of that game for 14 yards, yet they went away from the run and it cost them the game. Meanwhile, Kamara continues to be hyper-efficient, and is the No. 2 running back in fantasy right alongside his doppelganger, Aaron Jones. The Packers run defense is nothing to be worried about, as they allowed a massive 4.86 yards per carry last year and have continued that trend in 2020 while allowing 4.87 yards per carry through two weeks. The lone issue is that running backs have totaled just 48 touches against them in the first two weeks, as they've averaged just 53.5 plays per game. But when you pair an efficient running back like Kamara against a Packers defense that's allowed 1.08 PPR points per opportunity, you get big results. Kamara has averaged two touchdowns per game to this point, and he might just get there again in Week 3. Start him as a star RB1. Murray went from 15 carries in Week 1 to just three in Week 2, which gives you all sorts of anxiety when trusting him. But we can't let one matchup dictate how we feel about a player. In a game where the Saints are 3.5-point favorites with an over/under of 51.5 points, he should have some scoring opportunities. Consider him a semi-risky RB4 who has touchdown upside.Based on what we saw in Week 2, Sanders is 100 percent healthy. He played 77 percent of the snaps, which is massive for a player in Doug Pederson's offense. Now a big home favorite, can we get a breakout game from him in Week 3? When playing the Bengals, the gap between running backs and quarterbacks is 24.6 fantasy points, which is the second-highest gap in the league. Despite the additions the Bengals made this offseason, they still appear to be a team you can run the ball against, as Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt showcased on primetime last week. We watched the Chargers and Browns both rack up at least 32 carries in this matchup, which bodes well for Sanders, and maybe even Scott. The Bengals allowed 19 running backs to finish as top-20 options against them last year and have allowed three of them through two games in 2020. The Eagles offensive line is a problem, but we can't pretend that the Browns or Washington have offensive lines that are great, and they were able to make it work. Start Sanders as an RB1 in this matchup. Scott touched the ball seven times in Sanders' return to the lineup, which isn't great, but what is great is the fact that it was only those two (Sanders and Scott) who touched the ball. If we get anywhere close to the 35 touches per game running backs have averaged against the Bengals here, Scott could offer last-minute RB4 value, especially in PPR formats.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Packers are just 19th against fantasy running backs, Kamara should be a great WR1 at home in a game that could turn into a shootout.The Bengals are 31st against fantasy running backs, Sanders should have a monster game in Week 3 at home.
