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.While Henderson is going to be a popular play for fantasy managers, and rightfully so, there's a possibility that Brown can also be rolled out as a low-end RB3 option. Both of these RBs are going to see enough work to be useful for fantasy football and people shouldn't be moving off of Brown just yet.
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.We were told by Sean McVay himself that this would be a timeshare in 2020 and he wasn't lying. Through two games, the touch count is: Brown 32, Akers 18, Henderson 17. We may have lost one part of that timeshare in Week 2 as Akers had to leave with a rib injury. That would certainly help clear things up and make us feel better about both Brown and Henderson, as the Rams running backs have combined to average 33.5 touches per game, which is enough for two running backs to be productive. The Bills run defense isn't anything too intimidating and they were without two starting linebackers last week, though you wouldn't know it by the stat sheet. They have yet to play a running back who's totaled more than seven carries. This is what happens when you play the Jets and Dolphins over the first two weeks. If you look at them last year, they allowed a healthy 4.37 yards per carry, though the 25.6 touches per game they allowed to running backs was the eighth-lowest mark in football. I've brought this stat up before and I think it makes sense to do it again given the Rams willingness to run the ball in the red zone. Under Sean McDermott, the Bills have now allowed 46 rushing touchdowns to running backs over 50 regular season games. That averages out to 14.7 per season. By comparison, there were just five teams who allowed more than that in 2019. If Akers is ruled out, Henderson is my favorite play as a high-end RB3, though Brown is right there in a tier below (low-end RB3). They come with risk, sure, but given the number of touches going around combined with touchdown upside, it's a risk you should be willing to take. Akers is currently questionable for the game, but don't be surprised if he misses at least one week with his rib cartilage injury.

 Brown rushed 11 times for 47 yards in the Rams' Week 2 win over the Eagles. Brown fractured his left pinky against the Eagles and underwent surgery on Monday to repair it. Even so, he's expected to suit up. Akers (ribs) did not practice on Wednesday.
