Isaiah Sirois

 Henry Ruggs and the Raiders go from facing one of the league's worst secondaries to one of the league's best. That's a grim matchup for Ruggs, and although he led the Raiders in air yards (96), he didn't see enough targets (5) for me to feel confident about his floor. Since you probably don't need Ruggs to start in your lineup due to depth, I would leave your better wideouts in this week.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
DeSean Jackson was in a prime spot to blow up last week, but he failed to live up to expectations. He was in and out of the lineup all game long and played only 37 snaps out of a possible 68. While there's reason to temper expectations with Jackson this week, he still belongs in your lineup as a FLEX option. All it takes is one big play and he can single-handedly win you your matchup. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It was a disappointing day for the Eagles offense in Week 1, and that includes Jackson who was held to just two catches for 46 yards on a solid seven targets. We can't complain about the target total, though the more experience Jalen Reagor gets, the more he's going to cut into that number. The Rams cornerbacks did very well limiting the big plays against the Cowboys trio of receivers. They allowed the fifth-most receptions to wide receivers in Week 1, but again, when you play the Cowboys, that's going to happen. Gallup was the only one who averaged more than 11.8 yards per reception, and he wound up with three catches for 50 yards on five targets. Going back to last year, this Rams defense allowed just six plays of 40-plus yards, which ranked as the fifth fewest in the league. Jackson is someone who'll offer WR3 value during certain weeks, but you likely have better options this week. Still, he's on the WR4 radar as someone who should see six-plus targets.Want to hear something crazy? Ruggs led the NFL in percentage of his team's air yards in Week 1. He saw 60.5 percent of Derek Carr's air yards, which is just stupid high. By comparison, Courtland Sutton led the league in that category last year with a 42.9 percent air yards share. While that number will come down for Ruggs, it's a good sign of his usage, though they need to do a better job at getting him the ball close to the line of scrimmage. It looked like Ruggs hurt his knee/ankle during their Week 1 game, but he played through it and appears to be okay. The issue waiting is the Saints cornerback trio of Marshon Lattimore, Janoris Jenkins and Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, which is extremely good. Gardner-Johnson is the one Ruggs will see a lot of, and while he allowed 6-of-6 passing for 41 yards in his coverage last week, I think you can call that a success against Chris Godwin. Ruggs played 59 percent of his snaps in the slot last week, but with an average depth of target of 18.5 yards, he's not getting those high percentage targets. Ruggs still carries that one-play upside and Gardner-Johnson doesn't have blazing speed. Ruggs should be considered a boom-or-bust WR3/4 option who we hope isn't playing through an injury.
