Gurley has been holding up this season and he has RB1 upside against the Lions 27th ranked fantasy running back defense.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.
Mike Tagliere

Was it a coincidence that the first game without Dan Quinn netted the most weighted opportunity for Gurley? He racked up 20 carries and four targets against the Vikings, and though they didn't amount to a massive fantasy performance, it's encouraging for his role moving forward. The Lions have allowed the sixth-most fantasy points per game to running backs through five games. They've allowed a massive 5.25 yards per carry on the season, though Aaron Jones did account for a lot of that back in Week 2 when he racked up 168 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries. He was one of the four top-10 performances the Lions have allowed to running backs, as both Alvin Kamara and Latavius Murray finished there in Week 4, and then James Robinson last week. They did limit Robinson to just 29 yards on 12 carries last week, but he did chip in with four receptions for 24 yards and a touchdown, salvaging his fantasy day. He was the first starting running back who totaled fewer than 64 yards on the ground, and that includes David Montgomery. The Falcons have a 29.5-point team-implied total as home favorites, which bodes well for Gurley's scoring opportunities. He should be in lineups as a high-end RB2 this week.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.
