While many are giving up on Sanders, the season is still young. The Saints passing offense will figure it out and Sanders will be part of it when they do. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Sanders had some appeal as a WR3 in last week's matchup, but he absolutely fell flat. Sanders only reeled in one catch for 18 yards against the Raiders and he's taken a backseat to Smith, who had a huge day. Sanders isn't anything more than a WR5 in this matchup and he can't be trusted in your starting lineup.Howard's been incredibly inefficient and it's nearly laughable at his stat lines for the first two games of the season. He can't be trusted anywhere near your starting lineup and should be worth considering dropping in your league if you're still holding onto him.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It hasn't been a great start to the relationship between Sanders and Brees, as Sanders is averaging just 4.1 yards per target. He saw just three targets with Michael Thomas out of the lineup, making fantasy owners want to pull out their hair. Sanders is playing 40 percent of his snaps in the slot, which means he'll see a mixture of all Packers cornerbacks. If there's been a trend over the last two years, it's that the Packers are hurt deep down the field by wide receivers, and that's evidenced by the 14.95 yards per reception this year and 15.84 yards per reception last year. Sanders has an average depth of target of just 7.5 yards, which is among the lowest in the league. This doesn't seem like a matchup that fits his strengths very well, making him a mediocre WR4/5, and that's with Thomas out of the lineup.This backfield didn't get any clearer in Week 2, as Gaskin led the way with 13 touches, Breida got eight, while Howard brought up the caboose with five. The issue, of course, is that Howard is getting the goal-line opportunities, stealing any sort of ceiling for someone like Gaskin. The Jaguars have surprised early in the season, allowing Derrick Henry and Jonathan Taylor to combine for just 106 yards on 34 carries (3.12 yards per carry) and no touchdowns. They did allow the Colts running backs to combine for a ridiculous 17 catches for 142 yards and a touchdown in the Week 1 meeting, which clearly benefits someone like Gaskin, who has the passing-down role locked up with 11 targets through two weeks, while Breida has just two. The 7.40 yards per target the Jaguars allowed to running backs was the third-highest mark in the league, too. If you play in a PPR format, Gaskin can be considered a back-end RB3 for those dealing with injuries; just understand he doesn't come with a massive ceiling. The Jaguars have allowed at least 20 points to their opponents in nine of their last 10 games, so there should be a chance at Howard stealing a touchdown, but even then, what do you get? He's nothing more than a touchdown-hopeful RB4/5. Breida is the forgotten man whose role falls in between those of Gaskin and Howard.
