Through two weeks, here are the snap counts between these three: Swift 54, Peterson 39, Johnson 39. Gross. Here are the opportunity counts: Peterson 24, Swift 18, Johnson 16. Again, gross. Even worse is that Swift and Johnson have gotten two carries inside the 10-yard-line while Peterson has just one, which seems like it should be Peterson's role. This is going to be an ugly backfield to predict every week, though Swift should eventually establish himself as the top option. The Cardinals have surprisingly not allowed a running back more than 56 yards on the ground through two weeks. They limited Raheem Mostert to just 56 yards on 15 carries, though he did rattle off 95 yards and a touchdown through the air. Swift is clearly the preferred receiving option, as he's been in on 39 pass snaps, while Peterson and Johnson have combined for 33. Running backs have accounted for 50 percent of fantasy production against the Cardinals, which ranks as the third-highest in the league, so if the Lions are going to come anywhere close to their 24.5-point implied total, someone is likely to have value. Swift would be my choice, but as you can see, there's no guarantee. Treat him as a low-end RB3 and hope he finds his way into the end zone or sees quite a few targets. Peterson is getting the most touches but if he's not locked into goal-line work, he won't offer much upside at all. He's nothing more than a RB4 who's got a limited ceiling. I wouldn't want to start Johnson considering the 8.0 opportunities per game.I tried to warn you about Graham last week, saying he'll be a touchdown-or-bust option most weeks, but after seeing just one target in Week 2, you can't even consider him. He even saw his snaps decrease from 52 in the opener, to just 40 against the Giants. The Falcons secondary has had a rough start to the year against tight ends, allowing Greg Olsen to catch all four of his targets for 24 yards and a touchdown in Week 1, and then allowing backup tight end Dalton Schultz to obliterate them for nine catches, 88 yards, and a touchdown last week. It's difficult to know who to trust against the Falcons because almost all the matchups are so good, but this all comes back to the fantasy floor for Graham, which was one catch for 18 yards last week. He can't be a recommended streamer with a one-target floor, even in what appears to be a great matchup. He's a touchdown-dependent TE2.

On the surface, this looks like a great matchup for the Lions RBs, but there's just no way of knowing which one in this committee is going to return value for your lineup. Johnson looked like he was going to be riding the bench moving forward after week one, but he got the goal-line look last week and was able to convert. Johnson's a low-end RB4 moving forward that you simply can't trust near your starting lineup.In a game that Vegas is expecting points to be put up on the board, Graham's a fine touchdown-or-bust option for fantasy at the TE position. While he saw his target totals take a drastic drop-off in week two, this is a game where the Bears should be throwing the ball more than what they did last week. Graham should see 4-5 targets and he should be targeted in the red zone, which puts him as a back-end TE2.
