Expert 
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
Over their last four games, the Eagles have run the ball on 67% of their offensive plays. Smith has seen just 21 targets over that span, though he's made the most of them, with 14-258-3 receiving. He's been the WR16 over that stretch thanks to hyper-efficiency: Smith has averaged 12.3 yards per target over those four games, and 21.4% of his catches have gone for touchdowns. It will be difficult if not impossible for Smith to maintain that sort of efficiency, but it also seems unlikely that the Eagles will continue to run the ball like a team that plays in the Big Ten rather than the NFC East. Smith is a low-end WR2 this week against the Giants. Fade him in DraftKings at $6,400. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Don't look now, but Aiyuk has posted two top-12 performances over the past three weeks! With Deebo essentially acting as a Running Back here recently, Aiyuk has become the de facto WR1 for the 49ers and he's delivering. While fantasy managers will argue that he would have been producing the entire season if he had been given the main opportunity, that's a different conversation for a different day. Looking ahead to Week 12, the Vikings are allowing a staggering 26.1 fantasy points to opposing WRs this season and Aiyuk belongs in starting lineups because of it. He can be viewed as a low-end WR2/high-end WR3 with upside.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Smith had scored 41 fantasy points in Week 9 and 10, before having only 8 points last week. He should be a WR2 on the road against a Giants team that is 18th against fantasy wide receivers over the last 5 weeks.
