Expert 
John Hesterman
Dynasty League Football
McLaurin has the third-most receiving yards among the position and does not appear to be slowing down. With competent play from Alex Smith, he has the potential to keep racking up the yards. The DAL secondary isn't slowing down number-one receivers. Start McLaurin as a top-five option this week in a mouth-watering matchup. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
McLaurin has totaled at least seven targets in each of Smith's three starts, but why does his target share (21.4 percent) pale in comparison to J.D. McKissic's (29.5 percent)? Still, did you know McLaurin is the only receiver in the league who's seen at least seven targets in every game? That's why he's posted at least 11.1 PPR points in 9-of-10 games, including five of them with 17.2-plus points. Despite facing a high run percentage against them (second-highest in NFL), opposing wide receivers have outscored running backs by 21.2 PPR points, which is the third-largest gap in the league. Touchdowns have been hard to come by for McLaurin in this offense, but if there's a team who can help accommodate him, it's the Cowboys who've allowed a league-high 19 touchdowns to wide receivers (one every 10.4 targets). That's a big contributing factor to the league-leading 2.13 PPR points per target they're allowing to the position. When you know McLaurin is locked into seven targets, that's massive. He should be locked into lineups as a WR1 this week.He should be back in the lineup after now having two full weeks off with his concussion. It hasn't been a season fantasy managers will remember, but since Tarik Cohen went down with his season-ending injury, Montgomery's fantasy finishes have been 15, 14, 24, 21, and 49 (concussion). He's yet to eclipse 89 yards rushing or 45 yards receiving, and his team is almost never in scoring position, but he's getting 17-plus touches every single week, which has value as an RB2. When playing the Packers, running backs outscore quarterbacks by 14.72 fantasy points, which is the second-largest gap in the league. Running backs are averaging a robust 31.3 PPR points against the Packers, which is the second-highest number in the league. On average, wide receivers outscore running backs by 12-14 PPR points per game, but not against the Packers, as that gap is a league-low 2.59 PPR points. Here's the best way to lay it out: The Packers allow 74.3 PPR points per game to skill-position players, and a league-leading 42.1 percent of that goes to running backs. The Packers opponents have targeted their running backs on 23.1 percent of pass attempts, which ranks as the second-highest number in the league. That's led to running backs producing 14.1 PPR points per game through the air alone, which is the most in the NFL. That's crazy when you consider the Saints allow just 17.4 PPR points per game to the position as a whole. It's not just volume, either, as the 1.91 PPR points per target they've allowed is also the most in the league. All in all, the Packers have allowed 156.9 total yards per game to running backs, so knowing Montgomery receives at least 75 percent of their touches/production, he should be in lineups as an RB2.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Terry McLaurin has hit double-digit fantasy points in his last 5 games and the Cowboys are 31st against fantasy wide receivers. He should be a solid WR1 on the road on a short week.Montgomery should be back as the starter having 2 weeks to clear concussion protocol. He is a RB3 on the road due to his QB situation.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
It's very hard to find a receiver across the fantasy landscape, outside of the top-tier guys, who is as safe each week as McLaurin. He's been a solid option each week for you and he's still giving you some big-time performances here or there. In this matchup against the Cowboys secondary, McLaurin belongs in your lineup as a low-end WR1 yet again.
