He's trying to play through a hamstring injury right now, which can be problematic for fantasy owners. There's no way you can sit Jones when he's active, but he was more of a decoy last week. It should be noted that he did drop a long touchdown that was thrown by Russell Gage. Stay tuned for updates to Jones' status, but he's continually played through injuries throughout his career. The Bears secondary has played extremely well early in the season, holding Marvin Jones to just 4/55/0 on eight targets and then Darius Slayton to 3/33/0 on six targets. These guys are not Julio Jones, but they're typically fantasy producers. Jones lines up on the left side of the formation most often, which means he'll see a lot of rookie Jaylon Johnson in coverage. While Johnson has looked solid, he's still a rookie. On 12 targets in coverage, he's allowed 5/79/0, so not shutdown, but also very good for no preseason action and being thrown into the fire. There were just five receivers who posted WR1 numbers against the Bears last year, so they've been a relatively tough matchup. You have to play Jones if he takes the field, but temper expectations and avoid him in cash games. *Update* The Falcons are admitting Jones may have worsened his hamstring condition last week and there's talk of holding him out in Week 3. We'll pay attention as the week goes on and I'll update the notes here.We knew that Kupp's usage would change a bit this year with them wanting to run more 12 personnel, but he's still playing almost every snap and still running about 60 percent of his routes from the slot. That's a big positive in this matchup because of the top five performances against the Bills secondary over the last two years, slot-heavy receivers have accounted for four of them. This is highly unusual. Taron Johnson is the one who'll be tasked with trying to slow Kupp down this week. He was in coverage for eight of Jamison Crowder's receptions in Week 1, even though they amounted to just 56 yards. That's been Johnson's thing over the last two years, allowing a high 74 percent catch-rate, but limiting the yards overall by keeping the play in front of him. Kupp should offer a solid floor with the best matchup of the Rams receivers, though I can't say he's anything more than a mid-to-low-end WR2.

 Kupp led the NFL in slot receiving yards last year and the Bills have struggled to stop Jamison Crowder and Isiah Ford in the slot. Kupp is an upside WR2 in a great matchup.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Julio is reportedly dealing with a hamstring injury that he aggravated further during last week's game. At this point, it's highly unlikely that we see Julio suit up, but you just never know. Julio is seemingly always banged up, but he finds a way to suit up and deliver big performances. With this injury though, it did seem to affect him immensely during the game against the Cowboys and it would probably be wise for him to sit this one out. Even if he does play, you might not be able to trust him as anything more than a low-end WR2.Kupp has struggled to deliver the high-end production that we all became familiar with throughout the first half of 2019, but he's still producing solid WR2 numbers this year. This is a tough matchup for opposing wide receivers, but Kupp should see enough volume to return low-end WR2 production yet again.
