Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Brown has a tough matchup here this week against the Steelers secondary. With Lamar projected to struggle as a passer, Brown's probably best viewed as a low-end WR3 that has a wide range of outcomes. He can always break away a long play, but it's all about determining the probabilities of that happening.Fournette stepped in last week and was heavily involved in this offense. He was explosive on the ground, averaging 4.5 yards per carry, and was also heavily targeted out of the backfield. Fournette is in strong FLEX consideration this week, or could even be rolled out as a low-end RB2/high-end RB3 if you're in need of a fill-in option. There's also the slim possibility that Fournette just simply outright wins this job sooner than later.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He leads the NFL in targets (16) that have traveled over 20 yards in the air. He's only caught 31.3 percent of them, but if that percentage goes up at all, you're going to start seeing big fantasy performances. His 666 air yards through six games was the third-highest mark in the NFL. 61.5 percent of the fantasy production the Steelers have allowed to skill-position players has gone to wide receivers, which is the second-highest mark in the league. The Steelers have surprisingly allowed three 100-yard receivers through six games. Despite already getting their bye out of the way, they've allowed 21 pass plays of 20-plus yards this season, which ranks as the 12th-most. He's going to see Joe Haden in coverage most of the game, who's allowed 14.4 yards per reception in his coverage, including three receptions over 20 yards. He's also allowed two touchdowns over the last three games. This is not a matchup where you play receivers expecting tons of receptions, but rather look for the big play. Knowing the Ravens aren't going to be running on the Steelers, we should expect even more targets to Brown this week, and the fact that they've allowed the seventh-highest yards per reception to wide receivers (14.23), Brown has the best chance to succeed. He should be played as a decent WR3 this week.Jones is running hard and it shows in the numbers. The 3.32 yards after contact that he's averaging ranks ninth among running backs with 50 carries. Still, Bruce Arians decides to share the work with Fournette. I really thought Jones had extended that leash, but apparently not. The Giants have been better against the run than expected, allowing just 3.93 yards per carry on the season, which ranks as the 11th-lowest in football. Despite six running backs seeing 12-plus carries, just one of them has been able to crack the 100-yard barrier, so it has not been a smash spot on the ground. Through the air is somewhat of a different story, as the 1.85 PPR points per target the Giants have allowed to running backs ranks as the second-highest mark in football. Five running backs have been able to amass 39-plus receiving yards against them this year. Knowing Fournette ran 25 routes last week while Jones ran just 15 isn't ideal for Jones' role in the passing game. His drop in the second quarter is likely what sealed his fate. Because of that, Fournette saw seven targets, catching six of them for 47 yards. Jones is still the preferred option but it appears to be closer than we thought, especially if Fournette's usage in the passing game keeps up. Jones should be considered a low-end RB2 while Fournette is squarely in the RB3 conversation.

 Fournette had 17 touches last week, he is back in the flex conversation on MNF this week.
