Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
 When we last saw Jones, he was turning in a season-best 7-100-1 performance against the Dolphins in London just before Jacksonville's Week 7 bye. Jones had 10 targets in that game, and should continue to be busy with Jaguars WR D.J. Chark out for the season. Trevor Lawrence has shown improvement over his last three games, which further brightens Jones' fantasy outlook. Jones is a high-end WR3 this week. At $5,900 on DraftKings, he has some GPP appeal against a Seattle defense that hasn't exactly gotten airtight coverage from its cornerbacks.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Smith continues to ride the rollercoaster that is playing receiver for Hurts in this Eagles offense. Smith now has just one game this season where he finished as a top-20 option on the week, but has three performances where he's finished as the WR70 or worse. The upside just simply isn't there for Smith the way that we hoped it would be coming into the season and it's a valid question now to wonder if Minshew would be better for Smith from a fantasy perspective. Regardless, this is a plus matchup for the Eagles' receiving options and Smith should still be in consideration as a mid-range WR3. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Smith is the 27th ranked fantasy wide receiver over the last 4 weeks and he should be a WR3 against a Lions D that is 23rd against fantasy wide receivers.
