Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Leonard Fournette took advantage of Jones' mistake in week one and put together a decent stat line when it was all said and done, but he now appears set to return to a complimentary role in this backfield with Jones being named the starter again for week two. At this point, Fournette is merely a desperation FLEX play that you're hoping can find the end zone in order to make an impact for fantasy football. There's simply no guaranteeing what his workload is going to be in this one or any game moving forward. It's going to take an injury to Jones for Fournette to be trustworthy for fantasy.Last week, there weren't any Giants WRs I was willing to go near for fantasy and Sterling Shepard proved me wrong. He came out and put on a show against some very good corners for 113 yards and a score. With Kadarius Toney failing to step into a larger role just yet, Shepard's a very safe and reliable option for fantasy purposes. We shouldn't be viewing him as anything more than a FLEX option just yet, but he should see enough volume to easily return that value against the Washington secondary.
Pat Fitzmaurice

Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians is already setting us up for guesswork. After Jones lost an early fumble, Fournette wound up shouldering most of the load, playing 42 of 65 snaps and handling 14 touches (nine carries, five receptions). Jones played just six snaps, had four carries for 14 yards and didn't see a target. Bernard, just back from a sprained ankle, played 17 snaps, but he didn't have a rushing attempt and caught 2 of 3 targets for 12 yards. The RoJo fumble seemed to trigger Fournette workhorse usage, but then Arians said earlier this week that Jones would start in Week 2. This is a murky situation, and people will probably spend too much time trying to decipher a three-headed backfield on a pass-happy team.The sixth-year veteran has only had five career games where he's gone over 100 yards and scored a touchdown, but he's now done it in two straight games. Shepard dropped 112 yards and a touchdown on the Cowboys in Week 17 last year, and he opened the 2021 season with 113 yards and a touchdown against a tough Denver defense. With Kenny Golladay having missed valuable training-camp reps with his new team and his new quarterback due to a hamstring injury, Daniel Jones might continue to lean on Shepard early in the season. Shepard is likely to see a lot of snaps against Washington slot corner Kendall Fuller on Sunday. Fuller isn't bad, but Chargers slot man Keenan Allen had a 100-yard day against Washington last week.
