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.It appeared that Jones may have lost the starting job last week. It's a shame because it was almost as if the Bucs were looking for a reason, but he gave them one when he botched the handoff leading to a turnover. Bruce Arians said after the game that he's not planning on giving the starting job to Fournette, and that he likes him to come into the game later and finish teams off. This could very easily become a Peyton Barber/Jones situation from last year where we never seemingly know which one to start. For now, it appears that Jones hasn't lost all hope, but he's on thin ice every week, which can't be good for his mental state entering a game. The Broncos have allowed 100-yard rushers in back-to-back games to open the season, as both Derrick Henry and James Conner were able to get there. That's a big change from last year when they allowed two 100-yard rushers all season. Oddly enough, Fournette was one of them when he rattled off 225 yards on 29 carries in their Week 4 matchup. The bottom line with this matchup is that we have a lack of confidence in which running back to trust. Jones appears to be the 1A but he presents so much risk that he can't be played as anything more than a low-end RB3 with tons of risk. Meanwhile, Fournette is going to get some touches, though how many depends on if Jones screws something up. Fournette should be considered a high-end RB4 who has some upside, sure, but also has a five-touch floor if Jones is running hot.
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.Jones was able to cash in last week and find the end zone, but it looks like the fumbled hand-off was enough for Bruce Arians to send him to the bench. It's unfair, but it looks like Jones has suddenly lost his stranglehold on this backfield. He can't be trusted anywhere near your starting lineup this week and is now in RB4 territory.
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.
