Kyle Yates

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.Sterling Shepard showed some involvement in this offense, but he took a backseat to Slayton and his big blow-up performance. The Giants figure to be playing from behind in this game too, so there's a possibility that we see Shepard finish with 6+ targets again this week, but it's likely not going to be enough to start him over some of the other options on your roster.
Mike Tagliere

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.With the way the game started last week, it seemed Shepard would see 20 targets in that game. Many will see the final results of Slayton's two-touchdown performance and think, "here we go again," but Shepard looked very good against a tough defense, catching all six passes for 47 yards. With Golden Tate out of the lineup, he played a lot of snaps in the slot, which is where he's arguably the best. We don't know if Tate will return yet this week, so stay tuned. If Tate returns, Shepard will match up with rookie Jaylon Johnson quite a bit in coverage. He played competently in his first NFL game last week, allowing just 2-of-6 passing for 40 yards in his coverage, though he did get run over by Marvin Jones. If Tate is out, that would put Shepard against Buster Skrine, who had a rough game in Week 1, allowing Danny Amendola to rack up five catches for 81 yards on just seven targets. Either way, it's not the worst matchup for Shepard, but it's also not great. There were 27 receivers who saw at least six targets against the Bears last year, and just 14 of them scored double-digit PPR points. Shepard is likely the safest Giants WR play here, but he's just a WR4.
