Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Robinson didn't have as dominant of a game as many were expecting last week, but he was able to salvage his fantasy output with a receiving TD. It's a tough matchup for Robinson here, but he's simply seeing too much work to not view him as a high-end RB2 with a safe floor due to his involvement in the receiving game.David Johnson continues to see carries in this offense, even though he hasn't been incredibly efficient. Johnson now has four games this season, out of six, where he's averaged less than four yards per carry. However, as long as he's still seeing carries and finding the end zone occasionally, he belongs in your starting lineup. He can be viewed as a solid RB2 with limited upside yet again this week.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's now failed to top 48 yards on the ground in three of his last four games despite matchups against the Dolphins, Bengals, Texans, and Lions. That's the bad news. The good news is that he's been used in the passing game, averaging 5.3 targets, 4.8 receptions, and 40.3 yards through the air. The matchup this week is much tougher than his recent competition. The Chargers are still the only team in the league who's yet to allow a rushing touchdown. On the ground, they've allowed just 39.6 fantasy points, which is the lowest in the league, and a number that amounts to just 7.92 points per week. Fortunately, the 76.1 PPR points they've allowed through the air is the fifth-most in football. We've seen four different running backs in just five games finish with six or more receptions against the Chargers. Still, no running back has been able to finish better than the RB9 against them, and they've played against Alvin Kamara, Mike Davis, Ronald Jones, Joe Mixon, and Clyde-Edwards Helaire, so the competition has been stellar. Robinson should still be played considering his workhorse role, but he's more of an RB2 this week.One of the knocks I had with Johnson heading into the season was that Deshaun Watson never targeted his running backs in the passing game. With DeAndre Hopkins gone, I thought there may be a chance that changes, but it's proven to be a real issue for Johnson, who now has 20 targets and just 12 receptions through six games. Knowing he hasn't topped two receptions or 29 yards through the air in each of the last five games, there's little reason to expect it now. The Packers are a great matchup for running backs, as we've watched them average a league-high 34.8 PPR points per game, which is more than wide receviers have scored against them (32.5). They're one of just two teams who've allowed more points to running backs than wide receivers (Panthers are the other). Of the production they've allowed to the skill-position players, running backs have accounted for 44.6 percent of it. What happens when you see the Panthers or Raiders on the fantasy schedule? You get excited, right? Well, the Packers have allowed more fantasy points per opportunity than any other team in the league, as they've allowed a massive 1.14 PPR points per opportunity, something Johnson gets plenty of. The 4.79 yards per carry is high, though not massive like some teams (ranks as ninth-most), but they've allowed a touchdown every 15.7 carries. If Johnson can get targeted a bit more, the Packers have also allowed 7.56 yards and 1.94 PPR points per target to running backs, which are both near the top of the league. Johnson should be considered a rock-solid RB2 this week, but he'll have a tough time finishing as an RB1 unless he starts getting targets.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Chargers are 9th against fantasy running backs, but Robinson sees enough volume to warrant RB1 status.The Packers are 31st against fantasy running backs, Johnson is an upside RB2 play this week.
