Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Slayton was able to finally find the end zone in week six, which is a good thing because otherwise his fantasy production would've been abysmal. Slayton only saw four targets last week in a game that the Giants were winning, but that's not expected to happen much moving forward. Slayton should see his targets bounce back up against Philadelphia, but he might have a tough time producing anything more than low-end WR2 numbers. Start Slayton as a WR3 this week against the Eagles.Gage wasn't heavily targeted last week, but with the Falcons offense back to being a dynamic unit, Gage is an intriguing deep league FLEX option this week. The Lions are surrendering plenty of fantasy points to opposing slot wideouts and Gage could be a sneaky play.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He was iffy coming into last week's game against Washington and though he played, he appeared to injure his ankle on the 23-yard touchdown catch, then got up extremely gingerly on his next reception, which was his last of the game midway through the third quarter. He wound up playing 40-of-48 snaps but it's something to watch on a short week. He's going to draw Darius Slay in coverage more often than not, and that's a problem when Slayton is healthy, let alone when he's dinged up. Slay has been stable in coverage for the Eagles, allowing just 10.7 yards per reception in his coverage, and he's yet to allow a touchdown with his new team. The 7.85 yards per target the Eagles have allowed to receivers to this point ranks as the eighth-lowest mark in football, as tight ends have been a better position to target. There have been three top-30 receivers against the Eagles this year and all of them totaled at least nine targets, a number it's hard to see Slayton hitting with his lower body injuries. He's more of a low-end WR3 play this week who comes with a lower floor than most No. 1 receivers.I mentioned last week that if/when Jones came back to the lineup, it would help everyone involved in the Falcons offense. While Gage finished with just four targets last week, they amounted to four catches for 65 yards. He hasn't seen more than five targets since back in Week 2, which is worrisome when you're playing him for a floor and not necessarily a ceiling. It certainly helps that the Lions opponents have targeted their wide receivers 65.3 percent of the time, which is the second-highest mark in the league. It also helps to know that the Lions have been crushed by slot-heavy receivers. Here are the ones they've played through five games: Keelan Cole 6/143/0, Emmanuel Sanders 6/93/0, Andy Isabella/Larry Fitzgerald 5/47/2, Allen Lazard 3/45/0, and Anthony Miller 4/76/1. It's clearly a weakness between Darryl Roberts and Justin Coleman. Gage should be able to offer a WR4/5-type floor in this game.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The good news is that Slayton has scored 100 percent of the Giants passing touchdowns this season. The bad news is that Slayton plays on a team that has thrown only 3 passing touchdowns in 2020. He is a boom / bust WR3 against the Eagles 25th ranked fantasy wide receiver defense.
