FantasyPros
The Jets are 16th against fantasy running backs this year, Michel should be running with a lead quite a bit in this game and he should have RB2 value.The Vikings are just 21st against fantasy running backs, Jacobs is a boom / bust RB2 on the road against a defense that is better on paper than it has played in the first two games.
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
Michel is one of the more game script dependent players in fantasy football, and last week's game against Miami was the perfect example of a favorable game script for him. So is this week's contest with the Luke Falk-led Jets. Michel is going to be invisible at times when New England goes pass-heavy, but expect them to run Michel down the Jets' throat in Week 3.Jacobs made the most of his 12 touches last week against the Chiefs, piling up 99 yards. But the fact he got zero targets in the passing game was disappointing. He does not look to be an every-down back as long as the Raiders instead of sprinkling Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington in. Jacobs is also dealing with a groin issue this week, so he's merely a low-end RB2 for a difficult matchup at Minnesota.
Kevin Wheeler

 Josh Jacobs left game for a bit to get IV, battling sore groin. DeAndre Washington worked in. Jalen Richard saw more work - some due to trailing game script. Jacobs off to hot start, but passing down duties may not be locked in like some think. @dwainmcfarland He benefited from positive game script in the first game and they won't be in that situation often.
