Expert 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Jones had been looking terrific on the ground the past several weeks, but his deficiencies in the receiving game reared their ugly head yet again last week. Jones now has four drops on 26 targets this season. With Fournette healthy now and right behind him on the depth chart, he can't afford to continue to drop the football. Jones is hanging on by a thread to this job and one more drop, or missed blitz pickup, and Jones could be riding the bench for a very long time. He's still worth rolling out as a mid-range RB2 due to the other available options, but he absolutely comes with risk.Claypool came crashing back down to earth last week after a few solid performances and there are now serious questions about whether or not he can be trusted in your starting lineup. In this matchup, Claypool should be viewed as a FLEX play that will need to find the end zone to finish much higher than that.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Jones is running hard and it shows in the numbers. The 3.32 yards after contact that he's averaging ranks ninth among running backs with 50 carries. Still, Bruce Arians decides to share the work with Fournette. I really thought Jones had extended that leash, but apparently not. The Giants have been better against the run than expected, allowing just 3.93 yards per carry on the season, which ranks as the 11th-lowest in football. Despite six running backs seeing 12-plus carries, just one of them has been able to crack the 100-yard barrier, so it has not been a smash spot on the ground. Through the air is somewhat of a different story, as the 1.85 PPR points per target the Giants have allowed to running backs ranks as the second-highest mark in football. Five running backs have been able to amass 39-plus receiving yards against them this year. Knowing Fournette ran 25 routes last week while Jones ran just 15 isn't ideal for Jones' role in the passing game. His drop in the second quarter is likely what sealed his fate. Because of that, Fournette saw seven targets, catching six of them for 47 yards. Jones is still the preferred option but it appears to be closer than we thought, especially if Fournette's usage in the passing game keeps up. Jones should be considered a low-end RB2 while Fournette is squarely in the RB3 conversation.We talked about it a lot last week, and we were correct in assuming that Claypool would rank third in wide receiver snaps. The snap count went Smith-Schuster 65, Johnson 59, Claypool 51, and James Washington 18. The one target he saw is hardly ideal, especially knowing they threw the ball 49 times, but given his snaps, you shouldn't be too concerned. Claypool should see a lot of Marcus Peters in coverage this week, and while he's a good cornerback, he can get beat down the field at times. He's allowed 15.3 yards per reception in his coverage this year and has allowed a touchdown every 10.7 targets, so you shouldn't simply scratch Claypool off your potential start list. There have been five wide receivers who've posted top-30 numbers against the Ravens, and four of them were straight-up burners (Terry McLaurin, Tyreek Hill, Mecole Hardman, and Brandin Cooks). Claypool ran a 4.42-second 40-yard dash but has looked even faster in pads. He should be considered a boom-or-bust WR4 in this matchup.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Giants are 22nd against fantasy running backs, Jones should be a solid RB2 on the road this week.Claypool bombed last week with 1 reception for -2 yards, he is a boom / bust WR3 against the Ravens 7th ranked fantasy wide receiver defense.
