Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Slayton is going to be the focal point of this offense with all the injuries the Giants have suffered. He is a boom / bust WR3 playing against a banged up 49ers D.Smith had 84 yards receiving and 2 receiving touchdowns in Week 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He should be a TE1 against the Vikings 12th ranked fantasy tight end defense.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Slayton came crashing back down to earth last week, but he does have some upside in this matchup. With some key pieces missing from this offense now, Slayton's going to be needed more than ever and this 49ers secondary isn't as daunting as it's been in previous seasons. He can be rolled out as a WR3 again this week.Smith is currently the TE1 in all of fantasy football and has now moved into weekly must-start territory. In a matchup that should see Tennessee put points up on the board, Smith should easily return TE1 value yet again.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Has now has three targets inside the 10-yard line, which is tied for the league lead. That's good news, and we already know his target floor took a massive leap heading into Week 3 as the offense lost 23.5 percent of the targets (Saquon Barkley, Sterling Shepard). We could be looking at a receiver who's going to see eight-plus targets per game moving forward. The 49ers secondary isn't as daunting as it was last year, that's for sure. We've watched DeAndre Hopkins rack up 14 receptions for 151 yards in Week 1, then Chris Hogan and Braxton Berrios combine for 12 catches, 134 yards, and a touchdown in Week 2 against them. Not just that but losing their top pass rusher for the season is going to force their cornerbacks to remain in coverage that much longer. Don't forget that Richard Sherman is out for at least two more weeks, as well. Slayton will see a mixture of Ahkello Witherspoon and Emmanuel Moseley in coverage, a duo that's combined to allow 15-of-21 passing for 170 yards and a touchdown through two weeks. You should be considering Slayton a middling WR3 this week with some upside.You want to hear something crazy? Smith has exactly 12 air yards on the season. The ball has traveled 12 yards from the line of scrimmage to his hands on 12 targets. He's making everything happen after the catch. His 87 yards after the catch is the most among tight ends, while the closest one has 74 yards after the catch. That's my only concern with Smith, who ranks 11th among tight ends in targets. But make no mistake about it - he's a physical specimen who creates after the catch. The Vikings were the worst matchup in the league for tight ends last year, but last year seems so long ago for this defense that continually loses pieces. They lost linebacker Anthony Barr last week, and it didn't help them slow down Mo Alie-Cox who racked up six catches for 111 yards against them. There was a game last year where they allowed Darren Waller, another athletic tight end, to rack up 13 catches for 134 yards, too. This defense is going through some changes and it's not like you're going to sit Smith, who's currently the No. 1 tight end in half PPR formats.
