Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Kareem Hunt was able to cash in on the ground last week, which could make fantasy managers look his way as a potential mid-range RB2 in this juicy matchup. However, Hunt only saw nine total touches last week, which doesn't exactly give me complete confidence to view him that highly in my week two rankings. Based on the matchup - and the projected game-script - Hunt can absolutely be viewed as a decent FLEX play that has the opportunity to find the end zone again in this one. However, we shouldn't be viewing him as anything more than that until we see his total touches climb up into the 12-15 range.Laviska Shenault certainly filled the type of role we assumed he would in this offense after Travis Etienne went down with an injury. Shenault had an ADOT of 4.0 yards in week one against the Texans and 38 of his 50 yards receiving came after the catch. While Shenault has the talent to make this role work in the NFL, it's probably not going to lead to a ton of fantasy production in this offense with the way it's looked so far. Shenault can be viewed as a low-end FLEX option in week two that gets a bump up in Full PPR formats.
Pat Fitzmaurice

The Cleveland running game is a machine. Chubb plunged into the end zone twice in Week 1 and has now scored at least one touchdown in seven consecutive regular-season games. He's scored 14 times in his last 13 regular-season games. Hunt had a touchdown against the Chiefs, too. He now has 12 TDs in his last 16 games. The Texans gave up a league-high 2,564 rushing yards last year, to the tune of 5.2 yards per carry. This is a golden spot for the Cleveland running backs.While teammates D.J. Chark and Marvin Jones were running routes downfield, Shenault was staying close to the line of scrimmage in Week 1. He was targeted 10 times, and his seven catches went for only 50 yards. His average depth of target was just 4.1 yards, according to Pro Football Reference. As nice as it is to see the Jags scheming easy throws to Shenault, it's hard for a receiver to make hay in the fantasy realm when the depth of his targets is so shallow. (Shenault also had one carry for nine yards on Sunday, by the way - another schemed touch.) Viska has a tough draw against ace Broncos cover man Bryce Callahan this weekend, so I have him ranked as a low-end WR4.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Texans will not have the benefit of playing against one of the worst teams in the league this week, I expect both Chubb and Hunt to have big games against one of the worst defenses in the NFL.
