I feel like I'm in the Twilight Zone, or someone is messing with me. Hines totaled 15 touches in a game that was close throughout with Marlon Mack in the lineup for 1.5 quarters, but then totaled one touch in a game where Mack was on injured reserve. Cool story, Colts. Meanwhile, Taylor didn't see a single carry until the mid-second quarter in Week 1, but then received 26 carries in Week 2. I really hope there's more clarity this week, as it makes no sense to me. The only explanation is that Hines doesn't have a role when the Colts are well ahead, which is why they gave Jordan Wilkins nine carries in Week 2. They're double-digit favorites this week. What happens when your offense averages 68.0 plays per game and your opponent allows 70.0 plays per game? Fantasy points, that's what. The Jets run defense has been very good under Gregg Williams, as they allowed just 3.12 yards per carry through 17 games coming into Week 2. The wheels came off against the 49ers in that game though, as they allowed a few big runs that netted 184 yards and two touchdowns on 27 carries. There's a lot to dissect here because the Jets aren't the same defense they were last year, as they've lost safety Jamal Adams and linebacker C.J. Mosley this offseason. Things can change quickly with teams trending in the direction the Jets are, so when you factor that in, combined with a 27-point team-implied total, Taylor is a must-start high-end RB2 who can reach top-five numbers if last week was a sign of things to come for the Jets. Hines is a lot trickier because the gamescript should be similar to last week's game where he got exactly one touch. It's starting to feel like a Tarik Cohen situation where you want him used more than he actually is. The Jets did allow the 11th-most fantasy points through the air to running backs last year, but again, Hines needs touches to get there. Consider him an RB4 where we hope last week was a fluke.Don't hit the panic button on Woods after his weak outing against the revamped Eagles secondary. He did manage to sneak in a rushing touchdown to ensure he didn't completely bust, but five targets isn't ideal. Still, it's one game. That was the first time he hasn't seen at least eight targets in a game since back in Week 8 of last year. The Bills are likely going to use Tre'Davious White to shadow Woods while he's on the perimeter, which is where he runs his routes about 55 percent of the time. He's one of the best cornerbacks in football and has allowed just a 54.1 percent catch rate over the course of his career, and that's while often shadowing opposing No. 1 receivers. There have been 17 wide receivers who've seen eight or more targets against the Bills over their last 18 games, but only five of them have scored more than 16 PPR points, which is middling WR2 territory most of the time. Of those five wide receivers, four of them were slot-heavy receivers (Jamison Crowder three times, Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker). You need to keep expectations in check for Woods this week, as he's likely a low-end WR2 for this one. He can still do some damage during that 45 percent slot usage.
Derek Lofland

The Jets are just 24th against fantasy running backs, the Jets should see a heavy dose of Taylor in Week 3. Taylor carried the ball 26 times last week and he should see a similar workload this week.The Bills are 14th against fantasy wide receivers, Woods is a low-upside WR3 that is playing on a team that runs the ball as much as any team in the NFL and will probably target Cooper Kupp more in the slot this week.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Welcome to the NFL, Jonathan Taylor! Taylor saw 26 carries in week two and turned that into 101 yards and a score. He was the main guy for the Colts last week and there's little reason to doubt that that won't continue in this matchup against the Jets. While the Jets are a stingy run defense, Taylor's simply going to see too much work on the ground to not be a top-tier option this week. Fire up JT as a low-end RB1 this week.Woods didn't see a ton of opportunity in week two, but he still delivered by finding the end zone with a rushing score. This is another tough matchup for Woods, who should draw coverage from Tre'Davious White, but he still belongs in your starting lineup as a high-end WR2.
