Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Jefferson has emerged as one of the best fantasy wide receivers this season and he can be viewed as a mid-range WR2 with upside in this matchup that should see points go up on the board.Swift has stepped up nicely into his expanded role in this offense, but he's still second in this backfield to AP. Swift's finding the end zone regularly, which is boosting his fantasy production, but it's extremely unpredictable. With a tough matchup here against the Colts defense, Swift gets downgraded to a low-end RB2 that will need to score to finish much higher.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's averaging a massive 3.20 yards per route run this year, which ranks second to only Davante Adams. How good is that? Michael Thomas led all wide receivers last year with 2.88 yards per route run. It helps that he ranks second in yards (286) on targets over 20 yards. Is that sustainable? Well, probably not, but it does help that Cousins throws the deep ball on 20.6 percent of his attempts, which ranks as the highest mark in football. The Packers have done a good job with slot-heavy receivers this year, though Randall Cobb threw a wrench in that last week when he caught eight passes for 95 yards. We don't have a big sample size to go off with Chandon Sullivan, who's a third-year cornerback who went undrafted, and is playing his first full-time role. But Jefferson has played just 42.3 percent of his snaps in the slot, so he'll also see a lot of Josh Jackson as well, who's been a bust since the Packers drafted him in 2018, allowing a 68.6 percent catch-rate and a touchdown every 14.3 targets. Knowing Jefferson has totaled 100-plus yards in three of his last four games, you have to keep him in lineups as a low-end WR2, though volume is the concern in this game.Did you know that 39.5 percent of Swift's rushing yards have come on just two carries? He found the endzone last week, which salvaged his fantasy day, but don't forget what we talked about last week. Swift has totaled just 44.8 percent of the Lions running back touches over the last two weeks. His role has grown, sure, but Matt Patricia fails to realize he's the best back on the field right now. Peterson used to be the king of breaking tackles, but this year, he's broken just seven tackles on 86 total touches, which is among the worst broken tackle rates in the league. Now onto a matchup with the Colts, who've been one of the better run-stopping units ever since Matt Eberflus took over the defense. No running back has topped 72 yards on the ground against them this year, and that's despite five different running backs totaling 14-plus carries, including Kareem Hunt, Dalvin Cook, Joe Mixon, and James Robinson. If you go back to last year, there was just one running back (Derrick Henry) who totaled more than 88 rushing yards. It's no fluke. There's also been just one running back who's caught more than three passes or 30 yards through the air against them. All in all, they've allowed the fourth-fewest points per opportunity to running backs, so volume has been necessary to post fantasy numbers against them. Swift is a low-end RB2/high-end RB3 and not one you should aim to play in DFS lineups. Peterson continues to lose more and more work to Swift and given the tough matchup against a Colts team that's allowed just 3.48 yards per carry, and you have a weak RB3/RB4 option.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Packers are 11th against fantasy wide receivers, but Jefferson should be a solid WR2 with WR1 upside in a game that is likely to be a shootout.The Colts are 4th against fantasy running backs, Swifit is a low-upside RB2 at home.
