Is it time to drop him? I think we've probably reached that point, though it depends on who you're dropping him for. He's seen just nine targets through two weeks when Murray's thrown the ball 78 times. That amounts to a 11.5-percent target share. Kirk is expected to see the Lions rookie cornerback Jeff Okudah in coverage the most this week, and that can be considered a good thing after he struggled in his NFL debut last week, allowing seven catches for 121 yards in his coverage. It may have been rookie first game jitters, or he could still be working his way back from his hamstring injury. Whatever the case, it would take a real leap of faith to start Kirk this week after his miserable stat lines from the first two weeks, so he's just a boom-or-bust WR5.Only in 2020 would we see a 37-year-old Frank Gore get 21 carries in a game where the Jets lost 31-13. He's averaging a career-low 3.2 yards per carry and has scored a touchdown on two of his last 349 carries, but yeah, let's not find out what else we have on the roster. Stop trying to understand the Jets. No one does. Running backs have averaged a league-low 20.5 touches through two games against the Colts, and they haven't done much with them, as the 189 total yards allowed to the position is the fifth lowest in all of football. When you add in the Jets 16.5-point implied total, and you have yourself a running back unit to fade. Unless you're in a league where you're actively trying to score in between 4-6 points a week with your running back, you shouldn't roster Gore.

Kirk was able to reel in a big catch downfield last week, but he's simply too much of an afterthought in this offense to be relied on for fantasy football. He can remain on your bench or even dropped to your waiver wire.Gore saw 21 carries in week two, but that didn't exactly amount to much from a fantasy perspective. Gore will continue to see the majority of the workload, but this offense is just simply not good enough for that to equate to anything more than RB4 value.
