Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
With the Bills offense looking a little out of sorts on Sunday, Stefon Diggs wasn't his usual productive self. He saw plenty of targets - 14 total in week one - but his efficiency was well below what it usually is and it led to a 9-69-0 stat line. Diggs has a tough matchup here against the Miami secondary that should make life difficult for him yet again, but the volume Diggs is going to see is among the best in the NFL at the WR position. Start him with confidence as a low-end WR1. 
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
A 69-yard game with no touchdowns was a disappointing start for Diggs, but he was targeted 13 times and had nine receptions, so volume isn't a concern. There shouldn't be any concerns with Diggs for that matter - not even a tricky matchup against Byron Jones. In two games against the Dolphins last year, Diggs totaled 21 targets, 15 receptions, 229 yards and a touchdown.In the Chargers' season opener against Washington, Ekeler carried 15 times for 57 yards and a touchdown, producing decent fantasy numbers even though this pass catcher extraordinaire didn't see a single target. It was the first time Ekeler had gone targetless since November 2018. That seems like an anomaly, particularly since Herbert targeted his backs 156 times in 2020. Rountree, the rookie from Missouri, appears to have won the battle for the RB2 job. He played 22 snaps, Justin Jackson played 11, and Josh Kelley didn't play.
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
 Ekeler is a borderline RB1 given his ceiling, but it's hard to pencil him in among the top-12 after he failed to haul in a reception last week. Ekeler's strength is in his pass-catching ability, and while his rushing TD in Week 1 was certainly encouraging, we'll need to see him more involved as a pass-catcher before moving him higher in the rankings.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Dolphins were 8th against fantasy wide receivers in the opener, but the Patriots do not have a strong receiving core. Diggs should be fine in this game, he had 21 targets, 15 receptions, 229 receiving yards, and 1 touchdown in 2 games against the Dolphins last year.The Cowboys were 8th against fantasy running backs, but a strong running game is not the strength of the Buccaneers offense. Ekeler should have a huge role against the Cowboys D and he should be a solid RB1 option.
