MVS is currently the WR20 in Half PPR scoring, but he's easily a sit for me in this matchup if I can afford it. This is a tough matchup for opposing WRs and MVS needs to connect on a big play downfield or find the end zone in order for you to feel happy that you played him. He's a WR4 in this matchup.Ross has the talent to be a fine option for fantasy football, but right now he's falling down the depth chart here in Cincinnati. Ross just simply isn't seeing the necessary volume to be considered for fantasy football. He can remain on your waiver wire.
Mike Tagliere

He ranks 12th in the NFL in air yards, so we can't simply give up on him after a down game. Similar to Lazard, Valdes-Scantling had back-to-back bad plays in Week 2, including a drop in the end zone. He's playing on the perimeter 80 percent of the time, which means he'll see a lot of Marshon Lattimore or Janoris Jenkins in coverage. Teams have chosen not to target those cornerbacks much, as the Saints have faced just 29 wide receiver targets, which is the fourth-lowest mark in the league. Rodgers appears willing to target Valdes-Scantling in one-on-one coverage down the field, so we could see a few deep shots that may pay off, but you shouldn't bet on it against this secondary. He's a risk/reward WR5 who would get a solid bump if Adams sits.After Ross was trusted as the clear-cut No. 3 receiver on this team in Week 1 running 37 routes to just 9 routes for Higgins, we saw a changing of the guard in Week 2 when Higgins ran 42 routes while Ross ran just 23 of them. This is clearly an open competition, and one that Ross may have lost already. For now, we should give Higgins the benefit of the doubt. Against the Eagles, you really don't want to start either of them, as they have yet to allow a receiver top 81 yards or five receptions. Keep in mind they've played against Terry McLaurin, Robert Woods, and Cooper Kupp. We'll continue to monitor this receiver corps, but neither of these two need to be rostered right now.
