The Week 1 usage was a little worrisome, but in the end, Drake has now out-touched Edmonds 40-15 through two weeks, which makes this a 73/27 split. Drake is the workhorse we thought he'd be. The Lions are clearly having issues stopping the run right now, as they've allowed a massive 353 yards on 51 carries against the Packers and Bears. The loss of Damon "Snacks" Harrison was always going to be an issue and it's not like they can bring help down into the box, as their secondary is aching. The 6.92 yards per carry they've allowed is the most in the NFL, as is the 441 total yards they've allowed to running backs. When you look at that combined with the 30-point implied team total for the Cardinals, Drake owners should be dancing. If you go back to the game these two teams played last year, you'd see David Johnson with 137 total yards and a touchdown, finishing as the RB5 on the week. Drake should be in the RB1 conversation this week and someone you're using in DFS. Edmonds is strictly a handcuff, though he'll have a role in games the Cardinals fall behind as a pass catcher. He's not someone you should rely on for more than 5-8 touches per game, though.It's been good to see Smith-Schuster be fantasy relevant again, though he's seemingly taken a backseat to Diontae Johnson through two weeks. He's totaled a solid 14 targets that have turned into 117 yards and two touchdowns, but his 19.2 percent target share pales in comparison to Johnson's 31.5 percent share. The matchups will likely dictate who has the better week, but this week, they could choose either matchup. Smith-Schuster will see a mix of Bradley Roby and John Reid in coverage, a duo that's allowed 5-for-5 passing for 51 yards and a touchdown while covering the slot over the first two weeks. Not many realize, but Sammy Watkins plays the slot the most for the Chiefs, and if you recall, it was him having a big game in Week 1 where he tallied seven catches for 82 yards and a touchdown. Smith-Schuster should be started as a rock-solid WR2 who clearly has top-12 upside, but he's going to need to surpass his teammate in targets to get there.
Kyle Yates

Drake has seen back-to-back tough matchups and that's led to him landing at RB23 for fantasy so far this season. However, this is a matchup that we should see Drake bounce back in and be a top option at the position. The Lions are currently giving up the third most fantasy points to opposing RBs and Drake should be viewed as a top-12 back this week with this matchup. Start him everywhere that you can.While Juju has taken a back seat to Johnson from a target share perspective, he's still been productive for fantasy football. He's been incredibly efficient with the targets that he's seen and he always has the potential to find the end zone. Juju is a solid WR2 this week with WR1 upside.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Lions are 29th against fantasy running backs, I like Drake to dominate their defense at home this week. He is a solid RB1 that has lost some value from the end of last year due to Kyler Murray's insane rushing totals.Houston is just 16th against fantasy wide receivers, Smith-Schuster should be a low-end WR1 at home.
