Minshew struggled last week as he dealt with two injuries and a hot Saints defense, and while many expect him to bounce back in a killer matchup versus the Bengals, those injury woes carrying over put him outside the top 12 options this weekend. 
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
 Jones is essentially in an even split with Jamaal Williams by default, with the Packers making in-game adjustments to feed the hot hand. Still, Jones is a big play waiting to happen, giving him RB1 upside every week, though he should be valued more as a RB2.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Bengals are 26th against fantasy quarterbacks, Minshew should be a solid QB2 with streaming upside this week.The Raiders are 7th against fantasy running backs, Jones is a boom / bust RB1 that could lose touches to RB Jamaal Williams this week.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It was the first subpar performance out of Minshew last week, though if you were here last week, you'd have known it wasn't a great matchup for the Jaguars offense. The Bengals, however, are a completely different scenario. It was also just the first time this year Minshew has finished with less than 16.1 fantasy points, so we don't want to be too hard on him for one bad game. The Bengals are also the only team in the NFL who's allowed six different quarterbacks 16.3 or more fantasy points, so we find ourselves with a situation where the fantasy floor should be in the low-end high-end QB2 range, which is rare to find. It's not just one type of quarterback who's done it against the Bengals, either, as they've played Russell Wilson, Jimmy Garoppolo, Josh Allen, Mason Rudolph, Kyler Murray, and Lamar Jackson. The only quarterback who averaged sub-7.2 yards per attempt was Allen. They're allowing 8.34 yards per attempt on the season. To explain just how bad that is, Patrick Mahomes averaged 8.79 yards per attempt last year. It also helps that the Bengals opponents have averaged 65.7 plays per game, which is quite a bit higher than the 61.0 plays per game the Jaguars average. Minshew should be considered a low-end QB1 who possesses a high floor in this matchup.
