Jacob Wayne
Lineups
The Panthers' defense is going to be one of my favorites to target all season long for running backs as their front seven is one of the weakest in the NFL. Josh Jacobs came through in this matchup with an RB1 performance last week, and while Jones likely doesn't have that type of upside this week, he could finish as a top-ten guy. Leonard Fournette and LeSean McCoy were brought in over the offseason, but this is still Jones's backfield for the time being. He could see close to 20 touches in this matchup as the Bucs should be playing with a lead and I expect him to finish as a strong RB2.Jarvis Landry's Week 1 was pretty much what I expected, but if he can't finish higher than WR41 in a pass-heavy game script, I have concerns about his value long-term. The Bengals' defense will offer far less of a challenge than the Ravens did, but I have concerns about the play of Baker Mayfield as well. Landry is a fine WR3 option but his upside isn't great.
Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
 Jarvis Landry continued to do Jarvis Landry things in Week 1. The LSU alum is one of fantasy's most consistent players, and while he won't boost your lineup over the top too often, he's a great floor option to surround with higher-upside players. The fact that he's struggling through a hip injury makes me lean toward fading him this week, but I think he'll see enough usage for a 10-to-12 point floor in PPR. If that's what your lineup needs, fire him up.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Jones is creeping up into must-start territory with this matchup. While the Saints defense held Jones in check, he still ripped off some decent runs and looked like a much-improved back as compared to previous seasons. This Panthers defense just saw Jacobs rumble in for three touchdowns against them and there's a very good chance that we see Tampa lean on the run game in this one. Jones could easily finish as a top-15 option this week and he deserves to be started everywhere that you can.Jarvis Landry has reportedly been dealing with a hip injury recently, but he is expected to suit up and play on Thursday night. This is a great matchup for him, but there are the lingering injury concerns. With that risk factor taken into account, Landry can be rolled out as a low-end WR3.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Go ahead and admit it to yourself: Ronald Jones looked extremely good in Week 1. His 3.88 yards per carry may not seem like a ton, but he continually fought for every yard he got against a tough Saints defense. He led the backfield with 19 touches and 33 snaps, while Fournette ended with six touches and nine snaps. LeSean McCoy was in on 21 passing plays, but given the expected gamescript, this should be a run-heavy game for the Bucs. The Panthers defense has now allowed a preposterous 30 rushing touchdowns in their last 17 games. Over their last six games, there hasn't been a single backfield that's totaled fewer than 29 touches. They've averaged a massive 32.3 touches per game in that time. In the matchups last year, Jones and Peyton Barber combined to rush for 132 yards and three touchdowns on just 40 carries against them, and that was before they lost seven starters on defense. There are still nightmares in the back of our minds with Barber last year when Jones seemed like the clear-cut starter, so we shouldn't be automatically saying Jones is a top-12 start or anything, but given what we saw in Week 1, he should be started as an RB2 with top-five upside in this plus-matchup.We heard that Landry was going to be a on a limited snap count last week in a tough matchup, so he was somewhat of an easy fade. He was still able to catch 5-of-6 passes for 61 yards, so it wasn't a bad performance with all things considered (Mayfield's struggles, Ravens secondary). The matchup won't be as nice as it was last year against the Bengals, who've improved their play up the middle of the field. New slot cornerback Mackensie Alexander did a great job keeping Keenan Allen in check last week, holding him to just four catches for 37 yards on eight targets. This is not anything new for him, as he played extremely well for the Vikings last year. He was the only one on that team who delivered, allowing just 9.2 yards per reception and two touchdowns on 65 targets in his coverage. Landry is still clearly a favorite of Mayfield, so we should see him net six-plus targets, but the ceiling isn't quite there. Consider him a low-ceiling WR3. *Update* Landry missed practice on Tuesday and was limited in practice on Wednesday. It appears his hip injury continues to give him issues. He's questionable for the game.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Panthers were torched by the Las Vegas Raiders last week on the ground. Jones is not the same back as Josh Jacobs, but he is a solid RB2 with upside in a great matchup.
