It's fair to say that Ingram was a disappointment on Thursday against the Falcons, since he essentially had the backfield all to himself after Alvin Kamara left with a concussion but had one of his worst games since the Adrian Peterson trade. Consider it a one-off, as Ingram had been one of the most reliable backs in all of fantasy for most of the season. He'll face a tough opposing defense this week in the Jets, who allow the sixth-fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs. But regardless of if Kamara play, Ingram's track record makes him a must-start option, even in the difficult matchup.Bryant still isn't seeing a huge volume of targets, but it's not all that relevant to his fantasy value, as he is one of the best red zone threats in the game and has now scored in back-to-back weeks. He'll have another shot at a big game on Sunday night against the Raiders and the struggling Dexter McDonald. Oakland is a prime matchup for opposing wide receivers, and there's no reason to doubt Bryant in this one. He makes a WR1 on Sunday night.

The Jets are 9th against fantasy running backs, but the Saints running game should be good to go on 10 days rest. Oakland is 16th against fantasy receivers, Bryant is a WR2 this week in a favorable matchup on an offense that is on the uptick the last 2 weeks.
