The targets came back down to where we expected them to be with Brown in Week 2, as he saw just six of them, though that was enough to produce 82 yards and a touchdown, though most of that came on a late 46-yard touchdown catch. With Josh Allen dropping back to pass a lot more, it's put Brown on a path to exceed last year's 115 targets, even with Diggs on the roster. On top of that, Diggs will often draw the opponent's top cornerback in coverage, leaving Brown with a better WR/CB matchup. The Rams have Jalen Ramsey and Darious Williams on the perimeter, but we're expecting Ramsey to shadow Diggs, which would leave Brown with Williams. He's only faced 23 career targets, but he's been promising on them, intercepting three passes while allowing one touchdown. He did a great job with Michael Gallup for most of Week 1, and then held his own against the Eagles in Week 2. Brown should be considered a semi-risky WR3/4-type option this week, though it helps that Allen is playing better than ever.The touch count for the Bears through two weeks is: Montgomery 33, Cohen 15, and Cordarrelle Patterson 14 (yes, I'm counting him as a running back). The way to see that is that Montgomery is the leader in essentially a 55/45 timeshare. That's not great considering the Bears are 2-0 and the gamescript fit his role perfectly in Week 2. He's run extremely well, averaging 5.0 yards per carry, and made a few shifty moves in the open field last week that led to a 28-yard receiving touchdown, but will those positive gamescripts continue? They are three-point underdogs in this game, and the Falcons have stopped the run extremely well considering their competition. Despite playing against Ezekiel Elliott and Chris Carson, they've allowed just 3.45 yards per carry through two weeks. There seem to be a variety of ways to score, though, as Carson caught two touchdowns, Elliott rushed for one, while Dak Prescott rushed for three. Montgomery is going to get the goal-line, which is the positive here, as the Bears are implied for 22 points. Where the Falcons struggle is to limit running backs through the air, as they've allowed 15-of-16 passes to be completed for 85 yards and two touchdowns. Since Dan Quinn became the Falcons coach, they've allowed an average of 6.4 receptions per game to running backs. Montgomery can have his role diminish in a highly negative gamescript, though oddsmakers have this as a close game. Plug him in as a low-end RB2 this week. Cohen is officially someone I'm worried about with just three targets through two games. Montgomery has six targets. Heck, Javon Wims has four targets. Cohen is not an early-down back who's going to grind out a high yards per carry. If he's not getting the targets, you can't use him in fantasy. The Falcons matchup suits him well, especially indoors, but he must be classified as a risky RB4/flex with some upside should Matt Nagy actually use him in the passing game.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
There's always the possibility of Brown hitting that play every single week with Allen's arm strength downfield, but it's hard to trust Brown as anything more than a WR3. This is a tougher matchup than what we've seen the Bills face previously, so expectations need to be managed in this one, but Brown's still worth starting anywhere you've got him.Cohen was able to secure a contract extension before Sunday's game against the Giants, but he simply has not been getting the touches that would put him into RB3/FLEX consideration for your lineup week after week. Until we see Cohen's usage trend upwards, we have to leave him on our bench. Five carries and one target is not going to get it done for fantasy football.
