The Jets are 16th against fantasy running backs this year, Michel should be running with a lead quite a bit in this game and he should have RB2 value.The 49ers are 16th against fantasy wide receivers, Smith-Schuster is a boom / bust WR2 on the road playing without Big Ben at quarterback.
Andrew Seifter

Michel is one of the more game script dependent players in fantasy football, and last week's game against Miami was the perfect example of a favorable game script for him. So is this week's contest with the Luke Falk-led Jets. Michel is going to be invisible at times when New England goes pass-heavy, but expect them to run Michel down the Jets' throat in Week 3.JuJu's season-long outlook unquestionably took a hit with the news than Ben Roethlisberger was lost for the season, but he did show a decent rapport with Mason Rudolph. The Steelers may be more run-heavy with Rudolph under center, but inexperienced QBs often heavily rely on their number one receiver, so JuJu should still see plenty of volume. You're likely starting JuJu if you own him, but he's more of a boom-or-bust WR2 for Rudolph's first start, especially considering it's on the west coast against an improved 49ers D.
