Kyle Yates

With the news that Sanders is likely out for 1-2 weeks, Scott will step in as the main beneficiary and he should see a slight uptick in his carries and receptions out of the backfield. However, Scott's unlikely to step in and see all of Sanders' workload. He can be plugged in as a fine low-end RB2 in this matchup.Williams had an explosive run on Sunday, but that was about the extent of his impact in that game. He simply was not involved much and he's now a risky play this week. Even in a nice matchup, it's going to be hard to trust Williams as anything more than a low-end RB3.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
With Miles Sanders on the shelf, this should be Scott's backfield on Thursday night. That didn't mean a whole lot in Week 1 when he tallied just 11 opportunities, though he did have to leave that game temporarily with an injury. He's also failed to flash the magic he showed at the end of last year in his backup role. The offensive line is certainly an issue though, as Scott has totaled just 67 scoreless yards on his 21 carries this year. The good news is that Scott can be used quite heavily in the passing game, as he's caught 31-of-36 targets for 252 yards over the last two years, and even saw six-plus targets in four straight games to end the 2019 season. This matchup might suit Scott's skillset quite well. The Giants have allowed just 3.85 yards per carry on the year along with four touchdowns on 146 carries (one every 36.5 carries), so they've done a good job limiting production there. But again, the usage in the passing game is key, as the Giants have allowed a massive 78.3 PPR points through the air to running backs alone. That amounts to 13.1 points per game through the air, and there's not a whole lot of concern on the roster to take away Scott's targets. He should receive at least 15 touches in this game, and though his production on the ground may not be massive, his production through the air should carry him into RB2 territory.Through six weeks, Jones ranks ninth among running backs in weighted opportunity, though we saw him tally a season-low 13 touches last week. I wouldn't worry too much about it considering he's totaled at least 20 opportunities in the other four games. When you look at fantasy points allowed to opposing skill-position players, the Texans have allowed the third-most, right behind the Falcons and Seahawks, two matchups we love to attack. On the ground alone, they've allowed a massive 144.9 fantasy points. There is no other team that's allowed more than 110.1 points on the ground. It wasn't just Derrick Henry, either. We've watched Henry, Dalvin Cook, Clyde Edwards-Helaire, and James Conner all rush for at least 109 yards and a touchdown. Teams are also choosing to run the ball 47.1 percent of the time against them, which bodes well for the number of touches available to the Packers backs. All in all, they've faced an average of 33.3 running back opportunities per game. They've also allowed a league-leading eight rushing touchdowns through six games, which is tied with the Panthers, a team we continually attack. Jones has totaled 103 of the 173 opportunities to Packers running backs, so even if Jones sees his 60 percent average, he'd be around 20 opportunities in this game. Considering the Texans have allowed 0.99 PPR points per opportunity on average, Jones is in the conversation for the RB1 this week. Williams has averaged 9.4 opportunities per game himself, so if you're searching for a last-minute RB4, he should deliver a decent floor for a guy that's available in almost every league.

Scott will earn the start with Miles Sanders out, he is a low-upside flex option on a struggling Eagles offense.
