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.Through two games, it's fair to say Mike McCarthy won't be making this a timeshare any time soon. Elliott has racked up 55 opportunities while Pollard has just eight of them. If you have Pollard on your roster, don't drop him, as he's one of the most valuable bench stashes out there. The Seahawks front seven is not a particularly good unit, and they got worse when they lost Bruce Irvin this week to an ACL injury, but they've allowed a league-low 92 rushing yards through two games. Playing against Todd Gurley and Sony Michel will help, though holding those two teams to just 2.88 yards per carry is an accomplishment. That's also likely why opponents have gone with a run play just 31.3 percent of the time against the Seahawks (second-lowest mark in the league), because their secondary can be picked on. But again, Elliott isn't in the same category as Gurley or Michel. There were 10 running backs who finished as the RB14 or better against them last year, including four 30-point performances. This is a game where Prescott should shine, but you shouldn't be shocked if Elliott changes opinions on how good the Seahawks run defense actually is.

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.Pollard remains one of fantasy's top insurance RBs, but he's not seeing anywhere close to enough work to be considered for your starting lineup in any format.
