Washington is 22nd against fantasy running backs, Jones should be poised for a RB1 day at home.The Eagles are 8th against fantasy running backs, but Barkley has a lot of upside against a defense that nosedived against the Dolphins last week.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
The Packers said all the right things about getting Jones the ball more last week, and it seems they tried a bit, particularly in the passing game, but the Giants were ready for it. The 17 opportunities were the most he's had since Week 8, so it's a step in the right direction. The Redskins have been a much better run defense than pass defense over the course of the season, though some may see they've allowed the 12th most fantasy points and wonder if it matters. Volume has been the key factor, as the 4.09 yards per carry and 6.15 yards per target they've allowed to running backs is very mediocre and right around the league average. What has propped running backs up has been the volume, as running backs have averaged a league-high 32.1 touches per game against them. If you were to look at points per opportunity, they've been the ninth-best team in football against running backs, but it's tough to limit production with that type of volume. No running back has scored more than one rushing touchdown against the Redskins this year, as the nine total touchdowns they've allowed to running backs ranks as the ninth-fewest in the league. Jones has averaged 13.9 carries and 4.6 targets in games the Packers win, while averaging 11.3 carries and 4.0 targets when they lose. It seems Williams is going to get his 8-14 touches per game regardless, so when you know Jones gets most of the additional work in games they win, and the fact that the Redskins face 32-plus running back touches per game, this should amount to a 16-plus touch game for him. Jones should be played as a low-end RB1 who has all the right vital signs for a great DFS play this week, though the Redskins aren't a pushover on the ground.His 4.4 yards per carry last week was his highest since Week 2, which is a step in the right direction, though we've already talked countless times about what he needs to be a fantasy superstar. Long runs. The Eagles have allowed just eight runs of 20-plus yards this season, so while it's not likely, it's not impossible. When playing DFS, the Eagles are a team I actively try to avoid playing running backs against, outside of tournaments. They're better than average in every stat that matters to running backs, including the miniscule 3.60 yards per carry and 5.49 yards per target. Running backs have totaled just 69.1 rushing yards per game against them, and that's as a team. There has been just one starting running back who's totaled more than 43 yards against them, and that was Ezekiel Elliott, which was also a divisional game. These teams know each other pretty well at this point. In two games against the Eagles last year (they were still very good), Barkley totaled 13/130/1 in the first meeting and then 13/101/1 in the next one, so big runs were clearly a part of his games. He also caught 20 passes for 140 yards and a touchdown in those two games combined, because well, Manning checks down. It's a good thing for Barkley that he's back under center. You plug Barkley in as a low-end RB1 and hope he breaks those long runs, because outside of those, he's just a mediocre RB2.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
Jones has single-digit performances in three of his last four games, but this looks like it could be a get-right game at home against Washington. The Redskins have given up the sixth-most points to RBs over the past five games, and the Packers have been known to take advantage of these matchups this season. Look for a heavy dose of the running game, with both Jones and Williams. Jones is a low end RB1 with upside this week.Saquon looked a bit better last week, and now he faces the Eagles, who are middle of the pack against RBs over the past five weeks. Eli is back at QB, and we can expect plenty of drop-offs to Barkley, as an easy way to rack up yards and move the chains. He is a low end RB1 this week.
