FantasyPros
The kneejerk reaction to the Cowboys drafting Lamb was that Gallup would take a big hit. We all got past that and said it was realistic to see Lamb in the Randall Cobb role, with maybe a slight portion of the tight end targets that had vacated. Unfortunately, the initial reaction may have been correct. Gallup has 10 targets through two games while Lamb has 15 of them. There was just one stretch of two games where Gallup had 10 targets last year, so we're officially worried. He's typically at LWR, which means he'll see the most of Quinton Dunbar, the Seahawks big acquisition at cornerback. The Seahawks as a whole have struggled to stop wide receivers, but Dunbar has been at least competent. If the last two years are a sign of anything, he's the most talented cornerback on the team. Again, this team has allowed 67.5 PPR points per game to wide receivers, so there's production to be had, but Gallup is at the stage where he almost needs to prove it before he can be trusted as a top-30 wide receiver. He's just a borderline WR3/4 option despite the plus matchup, though the bright side is that the Seahawks have allowed six top-36 wide receivers through two games.We were told by Sean McVay himself that this would be a timeshare in 2020 and he wasn't lying. Through two games, the touch count is: Brown 32, Akers 18, Henderson 17. We may have lost one part of that timeshare in Week 2 as Akers had to leave with a rib injury. That would certainly help clear things up and make us feel better about both Brown and Henderson, as the Rams running backs have combined to average 33.5 touches per game, which is enough for two running backs to be productive. The Bills run defense isn't anything too intimidating and they were without two starting linebackers last week, though you wouldn't know it by the stat sheet. They have yet to play a running back who's totaled more than seven carries. This is what happens when you play the Jets and Dolphins over the first two weeks. If you look at them last year, they allowed a healthy 4.37 yards per carry, though the 25.6 touches per game they allowed to running backs was the eighth-lowest mark in football. I've brought this stat up before and I think it makes sense to do it again given the Rams willingness to run the ball in the red zone. Under Sean McDermott, the Bills have now allowed 46 rushing touchdowns to running backs over 50 regular season games. That averages out to 14.7 per season. By comparison, there were just five teams who allowed more than that in 2019. If Akers is ruled out, Henderson is my favorite play as a high-end RB3, though Brown is right there in a tier below (low-end RB3). They come with risk, sure, but given the number of touches going around combined with touchdown upside, it's a risk you should be willing to take. Akers is currently questionable for the game, but don't be surprised if he misses at least one week with his rib cartilage injury.

Gallup hasn't exactly hit the way that many fantasy managers were hoping for so far this year, but he's still involved in one of the league's most dynamic offenses. Gallup can be viewed as a WR3 moving forward that always has upside to find the end zone or reel in a big catch deep downfield.While Henderson is going to be a popular play for fantasy managers, and rightfully so, there's a possibility that Brown can also be rolled out as a low-end RB3 option. Both of these RBs are going to see enough work to be useful for fantasy football and people shouldn't be moving off of Brown just yet.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
This is my last week trusting Gallup as a WR3 based on matchup. Gallup has only 10 targets, 5 receptions, 108 yards, and no touchdowns in two games this year. The Seahawks are 32nd against fantasy wide receivers, so I'll give him the nod in this matchup. That said, Gallup needs to show the Cowboys offense can support 3 elite fantasy receivers this week.

 Brown rushed 11 times for 47 yards in the Rams' Week 2 win over the Eagles. Brown fractured his left pinky against the Eagles and underwent surgery on Monday to repair it. Even so, he's expected to suit up. Akers (ribs) did not practice on Wednesday.
