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.It's going to be tough for Jefferson to produce when the Vikings have thrown the ball just 51 times over the first two weeks, but he's caught 5-of-6 targets for 70 yards while running nearly all his routes from the slot, which should be good for production. The Titans have seventh-round rookie Chris Jackson covering the slot and he's been picked on a bit through two games, allowing eight catches for 81 yards and a touchdown on just 12 targets in his coverage. Let me be clear: He hasn't been very good. To further that point, PFF has graded him as the third worst cornerback in coverage through two weeks. If you're looking for a hail mary play this week, Jefferson might offer a surprise.

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. 
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.
