Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's the No. 2 receiver in the league when it comes to air yards, a stat that's often predictive of fantasy success. To this point, Jackson has averaged just 6.9 yards per target, but over the last seven years, he's averaged at least 10.0 yards per target in six of them. Seeing seven and nine targets is encouraging; he'll bounce back. The Bengals secondary hasn't allowed more than four receptions to a receiver over the first two weeks, which is due to the fact that running backs have had their way with them. But still, we've seen Keenan Allen get eight targets and turn them into 4/37/0, Mike Williams turn nine targets into 4/69/0, and then Odell Beckham turn six targets into 4/74/1. What was encouraging for Jackson is that Beckham seemed to routinely get open down the field against them, and if not for some holding, we would've seen a bigger game out of him. If Wentz can get some time, those air yards for Jackson might turn into a big play or two. Given his target and air yards share, he should remain in the WR3 conversation. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Jackson hasn't exactly produced the way that I thought he might to begin the season, but this offense hasn't exactly looked functional throughout the first two weeks. With that being said, he's still doing enough to be a fine FLEX option for your lineup. This week, he absolutely belongs in your starting lineup against the Bengals. The Bengals secondary doesn't have anyone that can keep up with Jackson and he always has the potential to hit the big play. I'm not expecting anything crazy from Jackson this week, but he should be viewed as a WR3 in this matchup.Engram bounced back from his week one performance, but he still didn't look exceptional on the football field. Jones threw an interception because of Engram coming out of his break slowly, slipping on the field, and giving little effort to make up for his mistake. With the other receiving options that are now going to miss some time in this offense, it's possible that Engram sees enough work to be relevant on sheer volume alone, but it's not going to feel great plugging him into your lineup. He's a low-end TE1/high-end TE2 this week against the 49ers.
