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.It was a quiet start to the game for Fant last week, but he made his mark on the Steelers once Jeff Driskel came in and ultimately finished with four catches for 57 yards and a touchdown. My concern with Fant this year was the lack of targets with so many good options, but now without Sutton and Lindsay, things have opened up a bit, allowing him to be the No. 4 tight end through two weeks. The Bucs knew their safety position was one they could've upgraded, and they did, snagging Antoine Winfield Jr. in the second round. He's looked good through two weeks, and the Bucs have allowed just 14.8 PPR points to tight ends through the first two games, which ranks as the seventh fewest in the league. That's somewhat easy to do when you play against Ian Thomas and Chris Manhertz in Week 2, who combined for just one catch and eight yards. If you go back to Week 1, it was a different story with Jared Cook, who snagged 5-of-7 targets for 80 yards. Knowing the Bucs allowed nine top-12 tight ends last year in this scheme, the jury is still out, but Fant should be seeing five-plus targets in every game, making him a solid low-end TE1/high-end TE2.

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.Fant has been fantastic (see what I did there) for fantasy football over the first couple of weeks and he should become one of Driskel's favorite targets moving forward. Driskel's going to need to get the ball out quick in this game and Fant could see an uptick in targets with Sutton out of the lineup. If Jeudy isn't able to suit up this week, Fant could be in line for a huge target workload, which could vault him up into the top-5 at the position. He's a great play this week.
