Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Slayton takes a huge hit with Shepard coming back into the lineup. While he can always hit the big play, he's an extremely risky option to plug into your lineup this week. Slayton should draw coverage from Jamel Dean, who has been solid all season. Slayton's a boom-or-bust FLEX option in week eight.Gore is now splitting carries with Perine, which limits his fantasy outlook in a terrible offense. Gore's a RB4 this week.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's now seen just four targets in each of his last two games, and it's limited his production. When you add Sterling Shepard back into the lineup, this was always the concern. Knowing the Bucs opponents have thrown the ball 64.1 percent of the time (4th in NFL), the Giants pass catchers should be pretty busy in this one. The Bucs have used Carlton Davis to shadow some No. 1 receivers, but the Giants don't really have that prototypical No. 1, so we shouldn't assume a shadow. The Bucs have allowed the eighth-fewest points per game to wide receivers, as they've limited them to just 1.69 PPR points per target. Sure, they've allowed 11 receivers to hit 10.5-plus PPR points, but seven of them had to see nine-plus targets to get there. The Bucs have allowed four pass plays to go for 40-plus yards, which is what you need to hope for with Slayton, so treat him as a boom-or-bust WR4 this week.Gore has now totaled 26 touches in the two games without Le'Veon Bell on the roster, though he may be losing his grip on the primary running back job. Perine out-snapped him 40 to 16 in their Week 7 game against the Bills, and that was in a neutral gamescript throughout. Against the Chiefs, you know they're going to fall behind, so who's running the pass routes? Perine has run double the routes that Gore has over the last two weeks combined, including a three to one ratio in Week 7. Running backs have amassed 1,144 total yards against the Chiefs, which ranks as the third-most in the league. That means there's been 163.4 total yards up for grabs to running backs every game. Volume is the biggest concern with the Jets backfield, as the running backs have combined to average just 21.6 touches per game. So, even if you project Gore to get just 10 carries, it's a giant chunk of the pie. The Chiefs have allowed 4.82 yards per carry and 6.76 yards per target, which are both above the league average, so efficiency should be better than usual for the Jets, who average 3.87 yards per carry and 4.52 yards per target. Perine is probably the preferred option here, but I don't anticipate Gore simply going away. Consider Perine a low-end RB3 while Gore is a middling RB4.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Bucs are 9th against fantasy wide receivers, Slayton is a boom / bust WR3 this week.
