Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Jones didn't appear to be 100% last week, but he was still out there soaking up targets. As long as Julio's on the field, he belongs in your lineup as a locked-in WR1.Henderson put up solid numbers last week and looked great running in between the tackles. While Brown will continue to be involved in this backfield, Henderson has guaranteed touches in this offense with Cam Akers seeing one or two snaps a game. Henderson can be started as a solid RB2 with upside this week against the Dolphins run defense.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's clearly 100 percent, as he's racked up 19 targets, 16 receptions, 234 yards, and two touchdowns over the last two weeks. The matchups were great, so it's good to see him take advantage of them. The matchup with the Panthers hasn't been as great as you'd think for wide receivers. In fact, there has been one team who's allowed more fantasy points per game to running backs than wide receivers, and it's the Panthers. They've allowed a very-small 7.45 yards per target to wide receivers, which ranks second to only the 49ers. They're allowing an above-average 67.9 percent completion-rate, though the receptions have gone for a league-low 10.97 yards. They have struggled with alpha wide receivers who see a lot of targets, which is a problem the Falcons present, as they have two of them. There have been three receivers who've seen double-digit targets against them and here are their totals: Keenan Allen 13/132/1, Mike Evans 7/104/1, and Calvin Ridley 8/136/0. It's not a can't-miss spot, but it's also not one that you should look to avoid with Jones. Start him as you normally would.Fun fact I found while doing research this week: Akers has averaged 4.15 yards after contact, which is one of the best marks in the NFL, though it is a very small sample size (26 carries). Henderson appears to have a stranglehold on the job, though don't get too comfy as a fantasy manager, as continually on a short leash. Still, his weighted opportunity is up there with guys like Jonathan Taylor. Of the production the Dolphins have allowed to skill-position players, 40.4 percent of it has gone to running backs, which is the third-highest mark in the league. But here's one of the craziest stats you might read this week: The Dolphins have faced just one running back all season who's totaled more than 11 carries. That running back was Chris Carson, who went for 80 yards and two touchdowns on 16 carries. Still, the Dolphins have allowed at least 93 rushing yards to running backs in 5-of-6 games this year. If Henderson gets volume, he'll produce like a high-end RB2, as the Dolphins have allowed the third-most fantasy points per opportunity to running backs, behind only the Packers and Raiders. He's totaled at least 14 opportunities in five of the last six games, so we must assume he'll be in that range again, so start him as an RB2 until McVay gives us a reason not to, but I'm not touching him in DFS cash games. After the Week 1 game where Brown had 22 opportunities, he's finished with 11 or less in five of the last six games. He hasn't been forgotten, as he's still received at least seven carries in 6-of-7 games and has 19 targets on the season, so he can be thought of as a last-minute RB4 replacement. Akers hasn't had a touch the last two weeks, so it's hard to recommend him to even be rostered at this point.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Falcons are 5th against fantasy wide receivers, but both Ridley and Jones should be WR1 this week.The Dolphins are 24th against fantasy running backs, Henderson should be a RB2 on the road this week.
