John Hesterman
Dynasty League Football
McLaurin has the third-most receiving yards among the position and does not appear to be slowing down. With competent play from Alex Smith, he has the potential to keep racking up the yards. The DAL secondary isn't slowing down number-one receivers. Start McLaurin as a top-five option this week in a mouth-watering matchup. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
McLaurin has totaled at least seven targets in each of Smith's three starts, but why does his target share (21.4 percent) pale in comparison to J.D. McKissic's (29.5 percent)? Still, did you know McLaurin is the only receiver in the league who's seen at least seven targets in every game? That's why he's posted at least 11.1 PPR points in 9-of-10 games, including five of them with 17.2-plus points. Despite facing a high run percentage against them (second-highest in NFL), opposing wide receivers have outscored running backs by 21.2 PPR points, which is the third-largest gap in the league. Touchdowns have been hard to come by for McLaurin in this offense, but if there's a team who can help accommodate him, it's the Cowboys who've allowed a league-high 19 touchdowns to wide receivers (one every 10.4 targets). That's a big contributing factor to the league-leading 2.13 PPR points per target they're allowing to the position. When you know McLaurin is locked into seven targets, that's massive. He should be locked into lineups as a WR1 this week.With Christian McCaffrey ruled out for another week, it'll be Davis' backfield. We've had to dial back expectations for him after that hot start, as he's failed to crack 66 yards on the ground or 34 yards through the air since Week 5. He's scored just twice since that time, so maybe the workload caught up with him? There have been three running backs who've topped 75 yards on the ground against the Vikings, but all of them totaled 20-plus carries, which is a mark that Davis hasn't gotten to this season. Unfortunately, the Vikings have also limited production through the air to running backs as well, as there's been no running back who's topped 36 yards through the air against them. When you start factoring those things in with Davis' lack of ceiling over the last six weeks, it's a bit problematic. On top of that, the Vikings have allowed just seven total touchdowns to running backs, which ranks as the fifth-fewest in the league. In terms of efficiency, the Vikings have allowed the 11th-fewest fantasy points per weighted opportunity to running backs, but the good news is that they've had to face 28.7 running back touches per game. That's where Davis gets his value, as he's locked into 15-plus touches in this game, and maybe 20 of them. Because of that, he belongs in the mid-to-high-end RB2 territory.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Terry McLaurin has hit double-digit fantasy points in his last 5 games and the Cowboys are 31st against fantasy wide receivers. He should be a solid WR1 on the road on a short week.CMC is not expected to play this week, which puts Mike Davis on the RB1 bubble against the Vikings 16th ranked fantasy RB defense.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
It's very hard to find a receiver across the fantasy landscape, outside of the top-tier guys, who is as safe each week as McLaurin. He's been a solid option each week for you and he's still giving you some big-time performances here or there. In this matchup against the Cowboys secondary, McLaurin belongs in your lineup as a low-end WR1 yet again.
