So much for those Snell hopes and dreams on the waiver wire, eh? I figured they'd give Conner another chance and he played well, compiling 121 total yards and a touchdown on 18 touches while Snell totaled exactly one yard on his four touches. This is Conner's backfield, but the Steelers will show no hesitance no move away from him if he's inefficient or dealing with an injury. There was no team in the NFL who allowed more fantasy points on the ground than the Texans last year, and it wasn't all that close, as the Chiefs were a full 16 PPR points behind them at No. 2. It wasn't just on the ground, either. They allowed a massive 1.98 PPR points per target through the air, which ranked second to only the Dolphins. When you have those numbers combined with a running back who'll likely see 18-plus opportunities, it's a recipe for big success. Both the Chiefs and Ravens rushed for more than 160 yards in their matchups against them, so there's little reason to doubt the Steelers backs. Play Conner as a low-end RB1 and as long as he stays upright, he should crush this matchup.It's odd to think that none of the Cowboys receivers have scored a touchdown this season, especially considering they've combined for 50 targets through two games. Oddly enough, the Seahawks have allowed a league-leading 731 yards to wide receivers (no other team has allowed more than 524 yards) but have only allowed two touchdowns to them. Lamb has been running 91.4 percent of his routes from the slot, which means he'll match up with last year's fourth-round pick Ugo Amadi, who hasn't been what you'd describe as great on his limited playing time. He's only seen 22 targets in coverage throughout his 123 snaps in coverage, allowing 19 of them to be completed for 164 yards, though none of them have gone for touchdowns yet. He's only playing because safety/cornerback Marquise Blair is out for the year with a torn ACL. This is a matchup that Lamb should be able to take advantage of, making him a decent WR3 play this week.

There was so much uncertainty last week surrounding what the carry split was going to look like with Snell and Conner, but we got our answer pretty quickly. Conner is the guy in this backfield and he should be viewed as a must-start option this week against a Houston defense that has been shredded the first two weeks. The Texans are currently giving up an average of 28.1 fantasy points to opposing RBs and Conner should be viewed as a player with top-5 upside this week.Lamb has been fantastic through his first two games as a rookie and he's soaking up targets from Prescott over the middle of the field. In a matchup where the Seahawks are currently allowing 42.5 fantasy points on average to opposing WRs, Lamb is in an excellent spot to return top-24 value this week.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Texans are just 26th against fantasy running backs, Conner should have solid RB2 value with upside at home this week.The Seahawks have not been able to stop any fantasy wide receivers this year, Lamb figures to be a WR2 with upside this week.
