Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After many panicked based on his Week 1 usage, Boyd reminded fantasy owners that he's still a very large part of this offense with his seven-catch, 72-yard, one-touchdown performance in Week 2. That was a smash spot, though, as he was playing against a backup slot cornerback. This week, it's going to be a lot different, as the Eagles went out and acquired one of the best slot cornerbacks in the game. Nickell Robey-Coleman has been a thorn in receivers' side, allowing just a 61.9 percent completion rate, which is low for a slot cornerback, and 6.04 yards per target in his coverage. To be fair, Boyd did play against him last year while he was on the Rams and posted a 6/65/0 line on nine targets, so it wasn't a complete waste. We're probably looking at a situation similar to Cooper Kupp last week, who wound up with five catches for 81 yards. This is not the plus matchup it was for wide receivers last year, so don't let anyone tell you that. Boyd should be considered a low-upside WR3 in this game.I feel like I'm in the Twilight Zone, or someone is messing with me. Hines totaled 15 touches in a game that was close throughout with Marlon Mack in the lineup for 1.5 quarters, but then totaled one touch in a game where Mack was on injured reserve. Cool story, Colts. Meanwhile, Taylor didn't see a single carry until the mid-second quarter in Week 1, but then received 26 carries in Week 2. I really hope there's more clarity this week, as it makes no sense to me. The only explanation is that Hines doesn't have a role when the Colts are well ahead, which is why they gave Jordan Wilkins nine carries in Week 2. They're double-digit favorites this week. What happens when your offense averages 68.0 plays per game and your opponent allows 70.0 plays per game? Fantasy points, that's what. The Jets run defense has been very good under Gregg Williams, as they allowed just 3.12 yards per carry through 17 games coming into Week 2. The wheels came off against the 49ers in that game though, as they allowed a few big runs that netted 184 yards and two touchdowns on 27 carries. There's a lot to dissect here because the Jets aren't the same defense they were last year, as they've lost safety Jamal Adams and linebacker C.J. Mosley this offseason. Things can change quickly with teams trending in the direction the Jets are, so when you factor that in, combined with a 27-point team-implied total, Taylor is a must-start high-end RB2 who can reach top-five numbers if last week was a sign of things to come for the Jets. Hines is a lot trickier because the gamescript should be similar to last week's game where he got exactly one touch. It's starting to feel like a Tarik Cohen situation where you want him used more than he actually is. The Jets did allow the 11th-most fantasy points through the air to running backs last year, but again, Hines needs touches to get there. Consider him an RB4 where we hope last week was a fluke.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Boyd hasn't made many big plays this season, but he did have 7 receptions for 72 yards and a touchdown last week. Consider him a WR3 on the road against a suspect Eagles secondary. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Boyd put together a solid outing for fantasy football last week against the Browns, but he should be viewed as nothing more than a high-end WR3 in this matchup. Burrow should be under duress all game long and the Eagles are a very stingy secondary when it comes to fantasy points allowed right now. Boyd still deserves to be in your starting lineup, but we need to temper our expectations for him in this matchup.Hines' usage last week was utterly bizarre. He was heavily featured by the Colts in week one and then got only one touch in week two. With the Colts moving solely to Taylor as their lead back, it looks like Hines' fantasy value was short lived. He can remain on your bench until we see if last week's usage was a fluke or not.
