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.We were told by Sean McVay himself that this would be a timeshare in 2020 and he wasn't lying. Through two games, the touch count is: Brown 32, Akers 18, Henderson 17. We may have lost one part of that timeshare in Week 2 as Akers had to leave with a rib injury. That would certainly help clear things up and make us feel better about both Brown and Henderson, as the Rams running backs have combined to average 33.5 touches per game, which is enough for two running backs to be productive. The Bills run defense isn't anything too intimidating and they were without two starting linebackers last week, though you wouldn't know it by the stat sheet. They have yet to play a running back who's totaled more than seven carries. This is what happens when you play the Jets and Dolphins over the first two weeks. If you look at them last year, they allowed a healthy 4.37 yards per carry, though the 25.6 touches per game they allowed to running backs was the eighth-lowest mark in football. I've brought this stat up before and I think it makes sense to do it again given the Rams willingness to run the ball in the red zone. Under Sean McDermott, the Bills have now allowed 46 rushing touchdowns to running backs over 50 regular season games. That averages out to 14.7 per season. By comparison, there were just five teams who allowed more than that in 2019. If Akers is ruled out, Henderson is my favorite play as a high-end RB3, though Brown is right there in a tier below (low-end RB3). They come with risk, sure, but given the number of touches going around combined with touchdown upside, it's a risk you should be willing to take. Akers is currently questionable for the game, but don't be surprised if he misses at least one week with his rib cartilage injury.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
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.While Henderson is going to be a popular play for fantasy managers, and rightfully so, there's a possibility that Brown can also be rolled out as a low-end RB3 option. Both of these RBs are going to see enough work to be useful for fantasy football and people shouldn't be moving off of Brown just yet.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Seahawks have not been able to stop any fantasy wide receivers this year, Lamb figures to be a WR2 with upside this week. 
Kevin Wheeler

 Brown rushed 11 times for 47 yards in the Rams' Week 2 win over the Eagles. Brown fractured his left pinky against the Eagles and underwent surgery on Monday to repair it. Even so, he's expected to suit up. Akers (ribs) did not practice on Wednesday.
