Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Jones didn't appear to be 100% last week, but he was still out there soaking up targets. As long as Julio's on the field, he belongs in your lineup as a locked-in WR1.Gaskin continues to receive enough touches in this offense to be viewed as a safe start every single week. Against this defense, he gets a slight downgrade, but he should still be viewed as a solid RB2 start.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's clearly 100 percent, as he's racked up 19 targets, 16 receptions, 234 yards, and two touchdowns over the last two weeks. The matchups were great, so it's good to see him take advantage of them. The matchup with the Panthers hasn't been as great as you'd think for wide receivers. In fact, there has been one team who's allowed more fantasy points per game to running backs than wide receivers, and it's the Panthers. They've allowed a very-small 7.45 yards per target to wide receivers, which ranks second to only the 49ers. They're allowing an above-average 67.9 percent completion-rate, though the receptions have gone for a league-low 10.97 yards. They have struggled with alpha wide receivers who see a lot of targets, which is a problem the Falcons present, as they have two of them. There have been three receivers who've seen double-digit targets against them and here are their totals: Keenan Allen 13/132/1, Mike Evans 7/104/1, and Calvin Ridley 8/136/0. It's not a can't-miss spot, but it's also not one that you should look to avoid with Jones. Start him as you normally would.With a rookie quarterback making his first NFL start, you'd better expect a run-heavy game plan out of the Dolphins, though that may not last as long as they'd like considering the spread on the game. Going into their bye week, Gaskin ranked 13th among running backs in weighted opportunity, and that's only been rising since they started making Jordan Howard inactive. Over their last two games, Gaskin has totaled 43 total touches, which is obviously great for trust in fantasy lineups. Opponents have averaged 26.0 running back touches per game against the Rams, though they haven't had much success, as they've allowed the 10th-fewest points to the position. There have been three running backs who've been able to crack the top-20 against them, and all of them totaled at least 17 touches. It's also worth noting that all three of those running backs came over the first three weeks of the season, while David Montgomery's 69 scoreless yards for 11.9 PPR points were the best performance against them since Week 3. The area where Gaskin may be able to do some damage is through the air, as he's seen at least four targets in every game, and the Rams have allowed the 10th-most fantasy points through the air to running backs. Gaskin is getting enough touches to get into RB2 territory, though his ceiling isn't very high in this matchup. Breida's role has grown in the two weeks that Howard has been inactive, totaling 18 opportunities in the two games combined, which is enough to consider for desperation RB4 potential, though there are likely better options on your roster.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Falcons are 5th against fantasy wide receivers, but both Ridley and Jones should be WR1 this week.The Rams are 9th against fantasy running backs, Gaskin is a low-upside RB2 this week.
