It's odd to see that Thielen, who has 21 targets on the season, has accounted for 48.9 percent of the Vikings air yards. It just goes to show how little they've thrown the ball to this point. Will that change going on the road to play a Houston team that's allowed their opponents 69.3 plays per game? The Texans secondary has been better than expected while holding receivers to just 10.1 yards per reception, which ranks as the second-lowest number in the league. That's accompanied by a 70.4 percent completion-rate, so it's more of a dink-and-dunk pass attack against them. Thielen ranks fifth in the NFL in air yards per target, so not exactly his strong suit. Thielen is running most of his routes at RWR, but it seems the Texans will be having Bradley Roby try to follow him around the field. He's been solid with the Texans, though not someone you must avoid, allowing a 63.6 percent catch-rate and 7.66 yards per target with a touchdown every 29.3 targets. He's even gone into the slot to cover receivers, so Thielen likely has the toughest matchup on the field among Vikings receivers. With the expected increase in volume for this week, Thielen should get into the eight-plus target territory, so he should be played as a strong WR2, though he's not a must-play in DFS cash games this week.This backfield is getting clearer by the week. Gaskin got the start last week and received 27 of the team's 33 running back touches but lost them when they mattered most - the goal line. Howard has a league-high eight carries inside the five-yard line, while Ryan Fitzpatrick has two, and Gaskin has one. Remember Devin Singletary last year? That's kind of the comp you get with Gaskin. Just 17 percent of all fantasy production the Seahawks have allowed to skill-position players has gone to running backs, which is by far the lowest mark in the league, so it's not a great matchup to attack with the Dolphins backfield. Through three games, they've yet to allow a team of running backs total more than 72 rushing yards, and that includes the Cowboys and Ezekiel Elliott last week when he totaled just 34 yards on 14 carries. The issue is that most teams are falling behind early and often, forcing them to go pass-heavy, which is why no team has totaled more than 18 carries with their running backs through three games. They have allowed two different running backs (Rex Burkhead, Elliott) to total at least 8.4 PPR points through the air over the last two games, so we should still see Gaskin produce a semi-decent floor in this matchup, even if the upside is capped. Consider him a low-end RB3/high-end RB4-type option who's safer than most in that area. Howard is droppable in all formats, as he's only being used in goal-line situations, which doesn't happen often enough in the Dolphins offense. Breida is clearly not someone who should be rostered, as he's totaled five or less touches in 2-of-3 games without any goal-line work.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Texans are 11th against fantasy wide receivers, but Thielen is averaging 14.5 fantasy points per game and he should be a WR1 on the road.
