Freeman hasn't lit the world on fire with his rushing ability yet in 2017 (just 3.9 YPC), but he's managed to find the end zone three times in his first two games. He may have trouble continuing the latter trend against the Lions in Week 3, as Detroit allowed only five rushing touchdowns to running backs all last year. But the disparity between Freeman and Tevin Coleman's usage got larger in Week 2 (17-snap gap vs. 12-snap gap in Week 1), which is obviously a good sign for Freeman going forward. He's an RB1 in this matchup, as he will be most weeks, but his ceiling is a bit lower than it has been in either previous matchup this season.Jeffery had a big performance in Week 2 against Kansas City, with seven catches for 92 yards and a touchdown, but he'll have a tougher matchup to contend with here against the Giants. New York has not allowed more than eight fantasy points in standard leagues to any receiver so far this season, and the defense has allowed just three receivers to surpass 100 yards last year. Janoris Jenkins may need another week to recover from his ankle injury, which would boost Jeffery's value a bit. But he'll still be a low-end WR2, at best, in the unfavorable matchup.

Freeman goes against a Lions D that is 12th against fantasy running backs, but the Falcons are one of the best running games in the league and Freeman should still be a great play this week.The Giants are 10th against fantasy wide receivers, but Jeffery should still be in the low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 discussion.
Chet Gresham

The Lions did a good job stopping David Johnson in Week 1 and had little trouble with the Giants' running game last week, so I do worry about Freeman's upside. But as the goal-line back, he always has upside in this offense.Jeffery would get a big bump if Janoris Jenkins is out again, but it does look like he'll be able to play. I expect Ertz to be the go-to guy this week, but Jeffery is always a good bet for a touchdown.
