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.I feel like I'm in the Twilight Zone, or someone is messing with me. Hines totaled 15 touches in a game that was close throughout with Marlon Mack in the lineup for 1.5 quarters, but then totaled one touch in a game where Mack was on injured reserve. Cool story, Colts. Meanwhile, Taylor didn't see a single carry until the mid-second quarter in Week 1, but then received 26 carries in Week 2. I really hope there's more clarity this week, as it makes no sense to me. The only explanation is that Hines doesn't have a role when the Colts are well ahead, which is why they gave Jordan Wilkins nine carries in Week 2. They're double-digit favorites this week. What happens when your offense averages 68.0 plays per game and your opponent allows 70.0 plays per game? Fantasy points, that's what. The Jets run defense has been very good under Gregg Williams, as they allowed just 3.12 yards per carry through 17 games coming into Week 2. The wheels came off against the 49ers in that game though, as they allowed a few big runs that netted 184 yards and two touchdowns on 27 carries. There's a lot to dissect here because the Jets aren't the same defense they were last year, as they've lost safety Jamal Adams and linebacker C.J. Mosley this offseason. Things can change quickly with teams trending in the direction the Jets are, so when you factor that in, combined with a 27-point team-implied total, Taylor is a must-start high-end RB2 who can reach top-five numbers if last week was a sign of things to come for the Jets. Hines is a lot trickier because the gamescript should be similar to last week's game where he got exactly one touch. It's starting to feel like a Tarik Cohen situation where you want him used more than he actually is. The Jets did allow the 11th-most fantasy points through the air to running backs last year, but again, Hines needs touches to get there. Consider him an RB4 where we hope last week was a fluke.

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.Hines' usage last week was utterly bizarre. He was heavily featured by the Colts in week one and then got only one touch in week two. With the Colts moving solely to Taylor as their lead back, it looks like Hines' fantasy value was short lived. He can remain on your bench until we see if last week's usage was a fluke or not.
