It appeared that Jones may have lost the starting job last week. It's a shame because it was almost as if the Bucs were looking for a reason, but he gave them one when he botched the handoff leading to a turnover. Bruce Arians said after the game that he's not planning on giving the starting job to Fournette, and that he likes him to come into the game later and finish teams off. This could very easily become a Peyton Barber/Jones situation from last year where we never seemingly know which one to start. For now, it appears that Jones hasn't lost all hope, but he's on thin ice every week, which can't be good for his mental state entering a game. The Broncos have allowed 100-yard rushers in back-to-back games to open the season, as both Derrick Henry and James Conner were able to get there. That's a big change from last year when they allowed two 100-yard rushers all season. Oddly enough, Fournette was one of them when he rattled off 225 yards on 29 carries in their Week 4 matchup. The bottom line with this matchup is that we have a lack of confidence in which running back to trust. Jones appears to be the 1A but he presents so much risk that he can't be played as anything more than a low-end RB3 with tons of risk. Meanwhile, Fournette is going to get some touches, though how many depends on if Jones screws something up. Fournette should be considered a high-end RB4 who has some upside, sure, but also has a five-touch floor if Jones is running hot.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.
Kyle Yates

Fournette took advantage of his opportunity last week and shredded the Panthers defense nearly every single run. Fournette appears to have this job locked up now, which puts him into the RB2 conversation in this matchup. There's always the possibility that Arians pulls a fast one on us and we see Jones more than we anticipate, but he's a safe start as a low-end RB2 with upside if he does completely take over this backfield.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.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Fournette had 12 rushing attempts for 103 yards and two touchdowns last week after Jones found the bench due to a fumble. Fournette seems poised to take over as the lead back in this offense and he is a RB2 against a Broncos team that is 9th against fantasy backs.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.
