Indianapolis is 30th against fantasy running backs, I like Freeman to compete for RB2 value on the road this week.Gordon had his fantasy value plummet last week with Brown in the game, we'll see if that changes against the Jets bad defense this week. Gordon is a boom / bust WR3.
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
 Gordon had just two catches for 19 yards in Antonio Brown's first game as a Patriot, and while it's too soon to say that Gordon is now merely a situational deep threat, his level of involvement in the offense is uncertain heading into Week 3. Gordon's pure talent and strong team context -- along with a plus matchup -- are enough to keep him on the WR3/flex radar, but he's now looking like more of a boom-or-bust fantasy option.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It's been a brutal start to the season for Freeman, as he's totaled just 41 yards on 19 carries (2.2 yards per carry) without a single touchdown and even lost a fumble. The snap count is also much closer than his owners would like, as he's played 76 snaps compared to 61 for Smith. It doesn't help that they lost their starting right guard for the year and then appeared to lose their starting right tackle last week (though he returned late in the game). Under Frank Reich, the Colts have still yet to allow a 100-yard rusher, though they have allowed a massive 5.50 yards per carry (sixth-most) through two games this season. They've also struggled at defending running backs through the air, as they've allowed 8.36 yards per target (fourth highest mark in the league). It's possible that Freeman has caught them at the perfect time after having two brutal matchups against the Vikings and Eagles to start the year. Freeman has seen double the targets that Smith and has nearly double the carries. The Falcons have to know they'll need Freeman to get going if they want to win games, and this game could help boost some of that confidence. He should be in lineups as a low-end RB2/high-end RB3 who might surprise given the Colts struggles.Many will want to move on from Gordon after his two-catch, 19-yard performance against the Dolphins, but you shouldn't be one of them. He was second to only Brown in targets and saw a whole lot of Xavien Howard in that game. Now that opponents have seen Brown play, he's going to get the No. 1 treatment from opposing defenses. Fortunately, the Jets don't have a true No. 1 cornerback. In fact, they may not have a cornerback who'd be starting on most rosters. If the alignment remains the same, Gordon will see a lot of Darryl Roberts in coverage. He's a former seventh-round pick who's never seen more than 53 targets in a single season. Over the last 18 games with the Jets, he's allowed five touchdowns on just 65 targets in coverage. Gordon won't be nearly as consistent with Brown on the field, but he's going to have some big weeks. This could/should be one of them. Keep him in lineups as a high-upside WR3 who makes for a great tournament option.
