The Week 1 usage was a little worrisome, but in the end, Drake has now out-touched Edmonds 40-15 through two weeks, which makes this a 73/27 split. Drake is the workhorse we thought he'd be. The Lions are clearly having issues stopping the run right now, as they've allowed a massive 353 yards on 51 carries against the Packers and Bears. The loss of Damon "Snacks" Harrison was always going to be an issue and it's not like they can bring help down into the box, as their secondary is aching. The 6.92 yards per carry they've allowed is the most in the NFL, as is the 441 total yards they've allowed to running backs. When you look at that combined with the 30-point implied team total for the Cardinals, Drake owners should be dancing. If you go back to the game these two teams played last year, you'd see David Johnson with 137 total yards and a touchdown, finishing as the RB5 on the week. Drake should be in the RB1 conversation this week and someone you're using in DFS. Edmonds is strictly a handcuff, though he'll have a role in games the Cardinals fall behind as a pass catcher. He's not someone you should rely on for more than 5-8 touches per game, though.We talked about a year three explosion from Ridley, but to lead all wide receivers by 16.1 half PPR points after two weeks? Sheesh. He's playing the alpha in this offense while Julio Jones plays through a hamstring injury, racking up 22 targets, 16 receptions, 239 yards, and four touchdowns. This week will be the toughest test yet when he lines up across from Kyle Fuller, the Bears top cornerback who's allowed just 6-of-15 passing for 70 scoreless yards in his coverage this year, including an interception. This should be a good battle, and while Fuller is a good cornerback, Ridley's better. Look for them to try and stretch the field with Ridley, as the route Fuller struggled the most with in 2019 was the go route and post route, allowing over 20 yards per target on said routes. Fuller is better when he can be physical with wide receivers, only Ridley's a bit too shifty for that physical play. Continue plugging him in as a WR1 until he gives you a reason not to, especially while Jones is playing at less than 100 percent.
Kyle Yates

Drake has seen back-to-back tough matchups and that's led to him landing at RB23 for fantasy so far this season. However, this is a matchup that we should see Drake bounce back in and be a top option at the position. The Lions are currently giving up the third most fantasy points to opposing RBs and Drake should be viewed as a top-12 back this week with this matchup. Start him everywhere that you can.Ridley is currently the WR1 in all of fantasy football and it's not even close. He's been insanely productive the first couple of weeks and there's absolutely no reason to sit him moving forward. Even if Julio sits this game out with his injury, plus a tough matchup against the Bears defense, Ridley's still a must-start option as a low-end WR1.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Lions are 29th against fantasy running backs, I like Drake to dominate their defense at home this week. He is a solid RB1 that has lost some value from the end of last year due to Kyler Murray's insane rushing totals.I do not think Julio Jones is going to play this week and if that is the case, Ridley should see a ton of targets on Sunday. He is a legit WR1, even against the Bears secondary that is 7th against fantasy receivers.
