Based on what we saw in Week 2, Sanders is 100 percent healthy. He played 77 percent of the snaps, which is massive for a player in Doug Pederson's offense. Now a big home favorite, can we get a breakout game from him in Week 3? When playing the Bengals, the gap between running backs and quarterbacks is 24.6 fantasy points, which is the second-highest gap in the league. Despite the additions the Bengals made this offseason, they still appear to be a team you can run the ball against, as Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt showcased on primetime last week. We watched the Chargers and Browns both rack up at least 32 carries in this matchup, which bodes well for Sanders, and maybe even Scott. The Bengals allowed 19 running backs to finish as top-20 options against them last year and have allowed three of them through two games in 2020. The Eagles offensive line is a problem, but we can't pretend that the Browns or Washington have offensive lines that are great, and they were able to make it work. Start Sanders as an RB1 in this matchup. Scott touched the ball seven times in Sanders' return to the lineup, which isn't great, but what is great is the fact that it was only those two (Sanders and Scott) who touched the ball. If we get anywhere close to the 35 touches per game running backs have averaged against the Bengals here, Scott could offer last-minute RB4 value, especially in PPR formats.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.

There were major questions surrounding Sanders last week and the type of work he was going to see coming off of his extended absence due to injury. However, he came out and saw enough work to finish as the RB12 on the week. Moving forward, Sanders belongs in your lineup every single week and this is a fantastic matchup for him. The Bengals are currently 2nd in the NFL in terms of allowing fantasy points to the RB position and Sanders could easily finish within the top-5 this week.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.

The Bengals are 31st against fantasy running backs, Sanders should have a monster game in Week 3 at home.
